That would be a big draw for the "not enough action" crowd.

Some of those zombies stayed in the shade, like the church ones.

I hope Shane leaves at the end of this season and Carl says "Shane! Come back, Shane!"

Science and common sense don't work in a zombie show, so don't see why that would be a problem. 100 degree heat (documented on screen by characters digging graves) would pose just as big a problem to a zombie as cold, and that hasn't slowed them down. They should be exploding like over-filled meat balloons all over Georgia...
Taking a "Star Trek Fan Boy leap of faith," on why the magical engineeering solution of the week works now and not later - why couldn't the part of the brain that regulates body temp be functioning as part of their urge to eat?

Body temperature isn't what makes them swell up like meat balloons. It's the gases given off by putrefaction.

If you want a justification, just say that whatever virus/nanite/magic has animated the zombies: it also feeds on or kills the bacteria that contribute to the rotting process. The decay isn't halted, just slowed way down.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 2 Discussion *Spoilers*

Sort of cool idea, but one commentor had a good point
Total Recall's Escalator Human Shield: The Movie

by grandwiz
Yeah...

The problem with such concepts is that in a 13 episode season, it's gonna slow down an already arguably slow moving series by going back and filling in blanks that don't really matter.

^^ I'm sure they could have consolidated the remaining episodes. Some people thought everything was dragged out too much, anyway, and even I began to think that the Sophia storyline was going on too long.

But I think that it would have been fantastic. We need more writers and producers like Darabont; he really knows what he's doing.

I think the problem with this, as interesting as it is, is that, as a season premiere, it might confuse--or even annoy--viewers anxious to resolve the cliffhanger from the prior year. OTOH as a midseason break or webisode it would have been brilliant.

Febuary can't get here soon enough for the season to continue.

^Hubby and I were just talking about how Walking Dead is coming back just in time for Valentine''s Day----because nothing says "I love you" like the zombie apocalypse.

Wow. That really would have been amazing. I especially like the idea of having a "wildcard" episode every season. It would have given the series a huge scope.

What the hell was AMC thinking treating this show the way they did?

I love the idea for that episode, but, I don't think Season Premiere would be a good place for it by itself. As a B-Story, alongside the resolution of the S1 cliff hanger, it could've worked very well, and would've given us a lot less "running around on the freeway and in the woods"
