My Blurb: Before we start this review series, let me say that I've not read the comic books. I did scan a few of the characters in The Walking Dead Wiki, but that's it. So, I don't know how the characters stack up against their written counterparts, nor do I need to know. I'm just explaining this so you'll know why I don't bring up the comic book developments in these reviews.

When last we left Rick Grimes, he was trapped in an abandoned tank with the walkers surrounding him. He had been on a search for his wife and son, who he thought may have retreated to a safe zone in Atlanta at the CDC. They didn't, or they at least didn't stay there.

In actuality, Lori and Carl are in a camp outside the city with Rick's best friend and fellow sheriff's deputy, Shane. Lori and Shane believe Rick to be dead and they've since embarked on an affair, which both are keeping from the group they're with, and especially from Carl.

SPOILERS are within. Some screen caps will contain gooey-undead and some grue, but I avoided the nastiest moments.
