The pressing question on everyone's mind as the fourth episode of "The Walking Dead" season 5 came to a close is how Carol ends up in the hospital where Beth is being held.

Sadly, fans will have to wait for the 16 November episode to get some answers, as episode 5 is going to focus on Abraham and his gang as they make their way to Washington D.C., in search of a cure for the zombie apocalypse. The episode is titled "Self Help" and according to the synopsis of the episode, the "group is confronted by new problems that test their ability to survive."

Spoilers indicate that the episode will include a bus crash, a flashback to Abraham's story, and Eugene trying to fight off some walkers with a fire station hose.

A sneak peek of the episode shows Abraham driving the church bus, and Maggie asking Eugene how long it will be, as Eugene talks about the cure. Scenes from the Comic-Con trailer are also expected to be featured in the upcoming episode, at the end of which members of Abraham's group may leave to rejoin Rick and gang.

It is not immediately known if Rick and the gang will be featured in the next episode, but if that happens, fans will get to see Daryl introducing Noah to the group, following which they will formulate a plan to save Beth and Carol from the hospital.

As fans would recall, Carol was wheeled in on a gurney at the end of "Slabtown," and Beth, who was about to attack the doctor with a sharp object, has a change of heart.

Meanwhile, the villain of the episode, officer Dawn, the role essayed by Christine Woods, opened up to Entertainment Weekly about her character saying that she does not consider her character to be negative. Instead, she is someone who is trying to make the best out of a terrible situation.

"I consider Dawn a hero. She is someone who was essentially socially in a position to protect and go out of her way to save people and keep things kind of going in an orderly way, because that was this person's job in normal life. So she's just acting in a way that is trying to keep her regular identity going. And so she thinks she's being very helpful. And she's keeping things going and keeping people safe, and so I think 100% her heart is completely in the right place here."

As the story unfolds, viewers will get to see more of Dawn's back story and their perception of the character might change in the course of time, feels Woods.

"I don't see her as a villain at all. I see her as a hero, and as the story unfolds you can decide if you think that too. I think she's a brave, scared person who is trying to be a hero. So I think she's a hero. I really do," Woods added.
