Storyline

The caravan of survivors find the road blocked by smashed-up cars and the cooling water hose of Dale's truck bursts. The group decides to stop to get fuel and supplies from the vehicles but out of the blue, a pack of walkers come in their direction. Dale stays in the top of the truck and the others hide below the cars. Sophia leaves the hideout too soon and two zombies chase her. Rick rushes after the walkers, reaches Sophia and asks her to stay hidden in the bank of a stream. When Rick kills the zombies and returns to Sophia, he does not find the girl anymore in the place. The group organizes a pursuit to seek out the girl. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Rick Grimes: [into the walkie-talkie to Morgan] I guess I'm losing hope that you can hear me... but there's always that chance, isn't there? That slim chance. It's all about slim chances now. I tried to do everything right, keep people safe. I tried, Morgan, I tried. Our group's smaller now. We lost another, day before last. It was her choice, I won't say I blame her.

The Pack of Walkers and the Signal

"What Lies Ahead" is a good beginning of the Second Season of "The Walking Dead". There are inconsistencies in the plot, but I liked the episode a lot. In "Guts", for example, the walkers were able to smell humans while walking; however, the pack of walkers on the road does not sense the presence of any of survivor. The decision of keeping Carl in a chase in the dark is also not reasonable despite the argument that Sophia is his friend. Andrea is annoying with her erratic behavior and the conclusion of the episode is ironic, after the pray of Rick that asks to Jesus Christ for a signal.

I saw this episode yesterday in Fox do Brasil on cable TV but unfortunately there are many commercial breaks in the moments of tension, in a great and abusive disrespected with the viewers. Shame on you, Fox do Brasil. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "What Lies Ahead"
