Rick tries to make contact with Morgan to tell him his location. Back at camp, after the fight with the zombies, Jim has been bitten and is slowly beginning to change; Andrea mourns over Amy's death; and Shane blames it all on Rick for leaving. Now that camp isn't safe anymore, Rick decides that it's time for them all to move out. He plans to take them to the C.D.C., a military base, to find a cure for Jim and, hopefully, more survivors.

When Andrea is sitting by her sister's body, and Rick goes over to talk to her, she draws a handgun on him. She visibly doesn't cock the gun as she draws it, but the racking of the slide is still heard. See more »

Rick Grimes: [Rick speaks into the walkie-talkie to tell Morgan about Atlanta, over the walkie-talkie] Morgan, I don't know if you're out there. I don't know if you can hear me. Maybe you're listening right now. I hope so. I found others... My family, if you can believe it. My wife and son, they're alive. I wanted you to know that. There's something else you need to know. Atlanta isn't what we thought. It's not what they promised. The city is... Do not enter the city. It belongs to the dead now....

Burying the Relatives and Friends
9 October 2011 | by See all my reviews

The survivors bury their relatives and friends after the attack of zombies and Andrea grieves her younger sister Amy. The camp is no longer safe and when the campers find that Jim has been bitten by a walker, Rick convinces them to move to the C.D.C. facility to seek protection and the cure for Jim. But when they reach the military installation, they find the truth about the location.

"Wildfire" is the weakest episode of "The Walking Dead" so far. The dramatic story has fez action and is focused basically in Andrea, Jim and the C.D.C. scientist performed by Noah Emmerich. Let's wait for a better sequence. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Wildfire" (1.5)

Note: On 08 April 2016, I saw this show again.
