While walkers were always an important part of the story on The Walking Dead, their true power wasn’t really seen until the season 2 premiere when the RV stalled out on the highway and the group members were searching for supplies among the vehicles parked nearby. While others found some interesting clothes or parts, Rick and Daryl found something else.
A group of walkers made their way toward the survivors. Thinking quickly, Rick told the group to get under the cars and hide so the walkers won’t see them. Lori grabbed Carol, pulling her under a vehicle while Sophia was separated from them. To keep Carol quiet, Lori put her hand over her mouth in hopes she won’t alert the walkers to their presence.
Intensity kicked up another notch when T-Dog cut his hand on a piece of metal and started bleeding badly. He hid behind a car, but walkers continues to pursue him. Layind down, Daryl covered him in dead walkers, camouflaging him from the zombies.
Also, a walker trapped Andrea in bathroom of the RV, but got an assist from Dale tossing her a screwdriver to drive into the walker’s head.
Scared out of her wits after being spotted, Sofia fled from under he car, running into the woods to get away from the walkers. This scene set the scene for the major plot line of the first half of season 2.
