Season 2


At the King County Elementary School, parents are picking up their children. Lori and Paula have a conversation about their relationships with their husbands. Shane, Leon and Lambert arrive to inform Lori of Rick's incident. She passes the news onto Carl and the two embrace each other.

Rick's Neighborhood

Rick Grimes and family live in an up-scale suburban-style subdivision on a street with many neighbors. As he returns to his neighborhood, he finds his house with the front door open and rushes inside. His family is not there. Instead, the house is empty and missing his photos, giving him a glimmer of hope. He stumbles out of the house, delirious, and finds a "man" stumbling by. Rick is struck in the head by a shovel and then shot at. He awakens tied to a bed while a man stands nearby. He finds himself in a neighbor's house, commandeered by Morgan Jones and his son, Duane. Rick spends the night recovering and finding out what has happened to the world from Morgan. The next morning, the trio make their way to the police station for supplies.
