Did that firefight really snap him out of it? Is that how mental illness works, and that's how I define his behavior. It doesn't strike me as symptoms that are fixed with a good night's slumber. , "I talked with imaginary Lori and settled my business with her. I'm at peace" and Rick's suddenly cured. That'd be bulls***
Nope, a schizophrenic break is almost always followed by hospitalization(s), years of counseling, and a new medication regiment. However, Rick does seem to have some insight into his illness. He understands that his voices and images/hallucinations aren't real, they stem from an overstressed mind.
