As it was, they came in broad daylight and had the entire group down on their knees. The motor inn was begging to fall. It was fine against walkers, but otherwise they were screwed.
Ben was on watch.. that's why he says sorry, when they pack into the RV.
If Lilly was on watch that would never happen. In ep. 2 she hears/notices Lee and the injured teacher like 30 seconds before they actually become visible.
She might have been only administrative Air Force but I'm sure being around such people had taught her things. As I said, I'm not saying she's professional but we can bet she will be better than let's say Ben... or Kenny (if we consider his way of saving his family in ep. 2).
