I assumed Sean was infected by the knife he used to cut his hand with for blood to draw zombies to the bus door after using it to stab the zombie cops in the head at the fence.

Rubbing his wrists raw and bloody in the barn on shackles that might have been used with zombies would also explain the infection.

Heck of an episode, heck of a season. I watch it with the wife (which shocks me, she’s not generally a genre girl), but she’s never read the books. I was so psyched to see Michonne. Next week Mad Men is back, AMC is the best TV network ever.

I don’t understand the point of the show. After the first 30 minutes its all a repeat. Run way from zombies, shoot zombies, etc. etc.

I love a good head splatter just as much as the next dumb-guy but come on man I’m trying to eat my bowl of spaghetti here.

It’s not about the zombies at all. Just like the comic books it’s about the people and how surviving in that world makes them change. There were hardly any zombies at all in the first half of this season. The title refers to the people not the zombies.

Haven’t really watched the show, but a huge fan of the comics, the story lines differ somewhat so I will get around to the show eventually =)

You may still be right that Shane was infected by his knife, and the prisoner infected from rubbing his wrists raw in the barn that had previously been “lived” in by walkers. (Trust some gov’t guy at the CDC that says EVERYONE is infected?!)

Of course, everyone could be infected, but do not ever show symptoms - just like many normal diseases.

I’m wondering where I can buy those 20-shot shotguns that still look like normal ones.

And I’m wondering if Herschel ever gets around to remembering that there is a prison a tank-of-gas down the road from his farm?

And any takers that Rick is showing early signs of Zombieism?

Yes, I think Rick may be showing some early signs, just like Sean did. Even though he's alive, the infection may be effecting his judgment and personality.

I love The Walking Dead! How close has the storyline been to the comic? Do we run into the black guy from Season 1 again that was in Jericho? I really like him.

My 14 year old daughter started laughing saying sense when do shot guns have that many shells in them?

And you’re also right— why don’t Hershel and his kids have any clue where to go or what’s nearby?

Well, as I was telling MY 14-year-old girls: “This show is so fackey!” (I also mentioned that too bad they don’t have some AR-type rifles available.)

What is the fascination with modern Undead shows? Vampires and Zombies. I don’t get it.

I’m not knocking it. However people are entertained is up to them and the more entertained the better. It takes the heavy off life and gives joy.

But the huge number of undead shows on TV mystifies me. I don’t understand the appeal.

Is it that political correctness have left the undead as the only enemies you can have today without offending someone. I mean, Vampires and zombies don’t have any real members in life to sue studios and threaten them with boycotts.

I understand that vampire shows appeal heavily to women. Maybe the zombie shows are similar. And being a man, I just don’t get the appeal.

"What was that at the very end? I turned away but it looked like it panned up to show a walled city in the distance? Was I just seeing things?"

I've read all the comic books so I am guessing it was the Prison. Also the Chick with the sword and the two walkers on chains (who saves Andrea in this last EP) shows up around the time they discover the prison in the comic book.

Nope, there are two seasons now... about 24 Episodes total (In this new TV age a season is around 12 Episodes.)

"That city in the background at the very end had barbed wire fencing around it. It looked like a prison of some sorts with guard towers. Maybe thats where the group will live next season? Hopefully if they do there will be more people introduced into the show :)"

You sir are correct! I've read the comic books, all 94 of them (which is how the Walking Dead started) and the Prison story arc happens after "Farmageddon".

What is nice about the TV show is the creators decided to make it different from the comic books. The Big Story seems to be the same (trying to survive ZOMPOC) but they changed some of the characters and smaller parts of the story so even if you have read all the comic books you aren't really sure just exactly how the TV series will work out.

I enjoy both immensely and I am not a big fan of comic books anymore but The Walking Dead Comic is sorta like an old pulp novel it has a charm about it at the same time a lot of drama and intensity that is rare in any form of modern story telling.

"it is probably the case that the virus when it enters through a small cut or eyes,etc remains subdued or dormant in healthy human beings unless the load is high from an injury or bite wound."

Yeah that is how I surmised it. I think Rick and crew may have been immune to the original virus But now it has mutated and with them constantly battling Walkers they have gotten scrapes and scratches and been covered in blood and zombie gore enough they have the virus in them.

Now when they die their Immune system shuts down and the virus reanimates the cerebral cortex (like was shown in the last few Episodes last year at the CDC.)

Yeah even the wife questioned that one and she knows jackshit about guns (well she knows which end is the business end and can hit what she shoots at) I am guessing the shotgun of Herschel's held maybe 9 shells at best (I know you can modify standard shotguns by changing the the loading tubes).

He was pumping out shots like it was a combat model shotgun with a 50 round drum!

Simple, they are the only enemies "good guys" can smoke with wreck less abandon and without any trace of moral ambiguity.

They don't have kids, or pets, or families. They are amoral, parasitic, implacable, and neither ask nor offer, quarter.

In short, indulging ones bloodlust by destroying them is a meritorious act, by definition...very much like the appeal of Islam.

WD is a mirror reflection of our modern culture: feelings of impending doom followed by mind-blowing horror followed by emptiness. The zombies are all around us - at some point we know we'll have to defend ourselves against them. So there is just something mesmerizing about the show. I can't wait for next season!

Dale didn`t re animate when he died.

Dale was destined to be a zombie no matter what happened, since he was chomped on. That's why Daryl put a bullet in his head.

No matter how they became zombies, a bullet to the head ends the nonsense.
