EXT. A LONG ROAD IN GEORGIA - DAY

A herd of walkers approaches the camera, which cranes up for more perspective, showing the herd is enormous and stretches to the horizon (probably on a hill, so the horizon doesn't go all the way, say, to Washington, D.C.). As the herd continues, SNARLING, stumbling and GROWLING, the camera begins to slowly crane down again, to focus on one walker. It is GLENN RHEE, covered with blood and gore, and limping badly.

COMMERCIAL BREAK

EXT. A RICKETY BRIDGE IN GEORGIA - DAY

The herd of walkers is crossing a rickety, wooden bridge over a river gorge that begins to CREAK and GROAN with the strain, then begins to shake. The camera finds GLENN RHEE, still stumbling along with the walkers, just as the bridge gives way and they all tumble into the water. The walkers are floundering and going under, being swept away, then the camera finds GLENN RHEE, climbing up on the small beach, rinsed of blood and gore, with a clear look in his eyes as he limps to a likely place, and starts to climb out of the gorge.
