After a shocking prison shakeup in the mid-season finale, The Walking Dead returns on February 9th with more new episodes to round out the series’  fourth season.

With the prison no longer an option, the gang is on the road. And in the forest. And in an abandoned house, from the looks of this new trailer from AMC.

Most of our central cast is here with the exception of baby Judith (we’re still not sure what happened there. Was the empty baby seat a metaphor, or can we hold out hope that Beth or one of the younger children rescued her?) and Carol, but we suspect the latter will put in an appearance when it’s least expected sometime during the season’s remaining episodes.

From what we can tell, with Rick both physically and emotionally battered from his experience at the hands of the Governor, Carl has taken on the role of the protector. But can he wake Rick in time to escape those Walkers at the front door?

Find out February 9 at 9pm on AMC. Or if you really can’t wait that long, check the second video for a sneak peek at just how well Carl is able to keep his cool.
