[first lines]
Rick Grimes:[Rick speaks into the walkie-talkie for in case Morgan can still hear him] 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, but she lost faith. The CDC was a dead end. I met a man there, a scientist. He told me something. He told me...

What lies ahead of us., 11 July 2012
Author: turtleggs from Turkey

The group continues its way to Fort Benning, after the events of season 1 finale. They encounter a horde of walkers, and Sophia spotted by two walkers and run away. Rick goes after them, shelters Sophia, distracts walkers, but Sophia runs away again.

The group tries to find Sophia, guilt is on Rick. Shane and Andrea is thinking about splitting from the group.

The group arrives church, where Rick wants god to sent him some kind of message. Soon after, he gets his message.

This episode is obviously not as strong as first episode of season 1, but it is good enough to show the things that will happen in season 2. Good acting, slow story progression, and nice walker make-ups.

My vote is 8/10.
