Sorry.. I am a plant murderer.. But i really like them. Anyways, this aloe is in a south facing window and i try not to over-water it.. I recently moved and it had to sit outside for a few days.. i think i injured it. Any help or advice would be great.. more pics to follow

I'd cut that bad leaf off.

Looks like too much water and it may have rotted. Also... The pot is way too large, a 4 inch pot would be best. Mix gravel in with your soil. It needs better drainage . Take it out of the pot and strip off affected leaves. Let it sit out for a day but wrap a wet paper towel. Cover the main taproot. Good luck.

No, no wet paper towel - it's already too wet. Leave it out for a day or so, and then repot as suggested, as there's too much soil and too much pot for that plant.
