The Walking Dead season 2 continues next week with episode 9, "Triggerfinger," and the survivors will be facing more than just zombies as the second half of the season progresses.
Walking Dead Season 2 Episode 9 "Triggerfinger" Promo
"Trapped, Rick, Hershel and Glenn fight to survive against new foes, both dead and alive. Shane finds Lori in danger on the road and makes it his mission to bring her back to the farm."
While the last episode, "Nebraska" (recap here), showed that Rick has become cold and willing to do what needs to be done, his actions also have consequences, which will be seen in "Triggerfinger." Meanwhile, no one knows what has happened to LoriÂ—though, really, everyone knows you pull over when you want to read a mapÂ—and Shane's going to be the one to find her, meaning that love triangle is just going to continue and keep getting more tense. Shane's convinced Lori's carrying his child, and with him now playing hero in a way to Lori by saving her on the roadÂ—especially considering what she's dealing with as shown in the "Triggerfinger" promo, it's obviously going to just make things worse for them and Rick. The tension between Rick and Shane is still there, and the once best friends (Remember those days? They were not long-lived on the show) both have their own reasoning for what they're doing. While each seems to be right in some instances, it's only a matter of time before something gives.
In the Walking Dead season 2 episode 9 promo for "Triggerfinger" (below), Rick may have taken care of Dave and Tony to protect his group, but now he, Glenn, and Hershel are going to be dealing with their friends looking for the two men. They weren't lying when they said they weren't alone, and now Rick's going to have to figure out what to do about that. Well, it turns into a shootout, and Rick has Hershel go out the back.
Meanwhile Carol continues to be concerned about Daryl and tells him she's "keeping an eye on" him when he finds her staring at her ear necklace. Daryl was the one looking the hardest for Sophia, and his reaction in "Nebraska" was understandable. Daryl hasn't had the easiest time, and he still has no idea what happened to his brotherÂ—though one of the promos out does tease that Merle could be returning this season.
Finally, Lori's trapped in the car after it flipped over, and with just her luck, there's a walker trying to get in. It's not like there's a quiet way to flip a car, so it was bound to attract the attention of walkers nearby, but it will be Shane who saves her. Will Lori lose her baby? Will Hershel get back to the farm in time to check her (and Beth, who's in shock and has a fever) over?
What do you think of the Walking Dead season 2 episode 9 preview of "Triggerfinger"?
