Previously: Hershel wanted them off their land. Beth was catatonic. Lori crashed a car. Rick got himself into an old-fashioned ghost-town shootout with Rene from True Blood.
Lori, unconscious in a rolled-over sedan. A zombie is trying to get at her, providing unneeded verification that she’s alive. She awakes and screams.
Bear McCreary’s Strings of Desolation.
Exterior: town bar. Gunshots. We’re looking up at Rick, finishing off Beret Tony. Hershel and Glenn are naturally stunned by the whole thing. Hershel says they should head back, and Rick palms what looks like keys from Beret Tony’s pockets. Glenn cautiously grabs Rene’s gun. They hear the sound of a car. Rene and Tony have friends. Rick, Glenn and Hershel hide. For some reason, the new guys don’t try the door.
A zombie is biting his way through a cracked windshield to get to Lori. She desperately tries to club out of the car before it can reach her; it doesn’t work that well, until she grabs some type of implement (tire pressure gauge?) and stabs it through the eye. She extricates herself from the car but guess what? Another zombie. She sees the gun inside the car, grabs it and manages to shoot zombie #2 just in time.
Farmhouse. The crew gathers at the dinner table for a meal. Shane tries to encourage Carl — his dad will be fine, etc. Someone calls Lori for dinner, and they all realize that Lori isn’t there at all. Shane and Carl realize pretty quick that Lori went after Rick.
