Bob may have managed to get free, but Rick wasn’t going to let that happen. He betrayed them when they tried to make peace with them. Rick really had no choice in the matter, but it’s a show of how different Rick is in Season 5 of [The Walking Dead](series:201193). We’ve watched Rick’s slow progression from nonviolent to violent when necessary to defend and now Rick is ordering on humanity himself. Two seasons ago Rick would not have rammed Bob in the back with a vehicle. Rick however is a very different man. He’s willing to work within the confines of a structure, but only when that properly benefits him. This Rick allows those who wrong him one warning before he makes them a non-issue.
