I don't think he's referring to the watch tower. In the scene were Herschel is sitting on the cat walk and shouting at Rick, you can see Maggie, Glenn, and Beth each standing outside of one cell. Almost like roll call.
At the second floor of cells, there are other people outside their cells as well.
You can see Glenn by the cells in the next shot and Beth's feet in the same place both times,its definitely aimed at Rick.
"You once said this isn't a democracy, now you have to own up to that" line comes after Hershel gets up from the stairs, and Daryl can be seen on the catwalk. So i'm guessing this is in episode 11 or 12.
i think its probably rick is going back to save daryl from the governor and hershel is angry because
1. Rick just returned and oscar died glen was beaten up and maggie was tortured
2. its dangerous and Rick needs to be at the prison to deal with Tyreese's group
or my other theory is that allen and ben have tried to take over the prison and rick is going to execute them but hershel begs him not to as ben is just a kid and they need all the help they can against the governor or my last theory which is supported by what the episode 11 or 10 synopsis says is he is going back for a lost friend(morgan) and hershel thinks he needs to stay in case the gov invades or anything goes wrong
Rick shoots the allen (not in front of ben) and then Rick is about to go to ben, who is in a cell but hershel tells him not to and yells come back here as he is desperate as ben is just a child. Rick comes back after a while and tells the group he is a threat just like Randall was, he also mentions Tomas and the prisoners. Hershel once again mentions he is just a kid and its not humane , Carl talks to rick and tells him he should stop being the leader as he can't choose wether to keep the group safe or listen to what they say. Rick goes out of the prison and leaves Daryl in charge specifically telling him to watch out for Tyreese's group and keep them locked up. Michonne and carl ask if they can come with Rick, he agrees the three of them head off to find morgan. Meanwhile at the prison Ben starts crying and losing it, Daryl tells him to shut up and Tyreese and Daryl argue after Daryl says no to Tyreese's request to let ben go. Merle and Glen start to have a fist fight michonne and daryl get involved but carl talks sense in to them. Tyreese begins to have second thoughts about Rick's group and sasha says their a bunch of animals. Rick finds Morgan but he has gone crazy and duane is zombiefied and locked in his room. The Governor finds the prison and sends a truck full of walkers to lure the group out and cause them to lose ammo and have some deaths. The governor tells his men to watch out for Andrea as he doesn't trust her, Rick ,michonne and carl arrive back at the prison and Andrea arrives at the prison with a walker after the walkers from the truck have been taken care of. Rick is angry at andrea as he thinks she let the turck of walkers out on the prison but daryl opens the gate for her meanwhile the governor watches from a distance. morgan wants to help rick so stays on a watch tower with a sniper he notices the governor and tells rick to get down, he fires a shot at the governor but misses the governor fires shots back but misses too he heads back to woodsbury without Andrea.
7-10 guys have sent me these spoilers i wanted to know what u guys thought about them and how true they could be.
That could actually work. I like that. I hope Daryl doesn't kill him though...I don't think he's a threat he's just having a tough time dealing with everything that's going on in his life, just like Rick.
