The Walking Dead Teaser & Sneak Peek: "Triggerfinger"

at . Comments

Isn't it nice to have The Walking Dead back in our lives?

After a multi-month hiatus, the AMC series returned last night with "Nebraska," an episode that picked up in the immediate aftermath of Sophia's shooting, as depicted on the midseason finale. Where will the zombie-themed drama go next?

Look for Rick, Glenn and Hershel to find themselves in a fight for survival on Sunday's "Triggerfinger," as they square off against a new army of antagonists. Elsewhere, Lori will encounter dangers of her own on the road, while Shane tries to return her to the farm.

Check out the official AMC preview and a clip now:

NOTE: The Walking Dead broke every basic cable ratings record with its return episode, drawing 8.1 million viewers for its original airing.

Episode 9: "Triggerfinger"
Episode starts as a walker is trying to reach an unconscious Lori in the crashed car. Lori regains consciousness, screams, cue theme music. Back at the bar, a car suddenly appears as Rick and the others prepare to leave. Three guys arrive looking for their two lost friends who Rick gunned down in the previous episode. Rick, Glenn and Hershel are pinned down at the bar, so they try to shout to the newcomers that the two assholes shot first.


They don't believe that shit and a shootout ensues. Meanwhile, Lori, who is completely uninjured, manages to kill a pair of walkers who attempt to break into the wrecked car. In the farm, everybody realizes that Lori is missing and Shane goes out looking for her. He finds her wandering on the road and tells her that Rick & Co. are already back in order to get her to return to the farm. Glenn eventually makes a run for the car and Hershel covers him, shooting one of their attackers.


Walkers appear and proceed to devour the wounded shooter. The remaining two decide to get the hell out of there, but one of them accidentally impales his leg on a fence when jumping off a roof. The other guy leaves him there and drives off. Rick, Glenn and Hershel manage to pry the jumper loose while fighting off walkers. Everybody gets in the car and they drive away. Arriving at the farm, Lori discovers that Shane lied and the others aren't really back yet.


They have a private talk and Lori tells Shane to get over her. Shane obviously doesn't. Rick returns with their captive (Randall) and everybody discuss what to do with him. They decide to drive him a short distance away, blindfolded, and dump him there (plot of next episode). Glenn is depressed because he froze during the shootout like a coward. Lori tells Rick that Shane likely killed Otis, that he's dangerous, and that he won't stop unless Rick does something about it. End episode.


Damn. She's still alive. I agree, eat Lori, zombie! EAAAAaaat!! The teaser is always some tiring "acting" scene. The only thing interesting in it is: Who is the person being given a care package and sent on their way?


That's it zombie! Eat Lori!
