It's been just a few weeks since the return of The Walking Dead and already its characters have put the prison far behind them—metaphorically for some, but quite literally for others. The main group has been split into smaller factions, who are searching for other survivors and a new haven. Unfortunately for Rick and co., these times of danger and uncertainty tend to make for the show's best episodes, those that fill viewers with excitement and dread all at once. Right now, however, dread is the key word.

There are a lot of different directions the show could be heading in and while some would be great, others could be really, really terrible or just depressing. Here are some potential storylines that fans should fear more than a pack of walkers.
