Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

There should be untold numbers of elderly zombies if everyone is infected and just started turning into zombies when they die. Thousands upon thousands of elderly people die of natural causes around the world every day. Zombies should have been killing their grandchildren and nursing staffs on the very first day of the outbreak before anyone could recover from the shock and realize what's going on. That's what would give you numbers.

They do that already, as seen in "Guts," when Rick was shooting zombies trying to climb the fence in hot pursuit.

Oh yeah... right, in season one, the episode after they climb the tank, but by season 3 they're just kind of hanging around the prison fences

That threat should be bigger at the prison

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

The biters in Season 1 were freshly dead, and still had muscles and some "brain power" (remnant imagination, perhaps?) to motivate them to do things like climb fences and smash glass with rocks. By Season 3, after almost an entire year, the biters are significantly decayed (as shown by the makeup) and are probably lacking in strength due to decayed muscles and any "imagination" they have is gone. They just walk until they bump into something.

Furthermore, the biters are only really motivated to act when they sense prey by sight or smell, and most of the time Rick's group isn't hanging out by the fence to antagonize them. So they just ceaselessly bump against the fence. If one walker did show any inclination to scale the prison fence, someone would merely need to destroy that one before they made it to the top.

To really invade the prison, a large herd would be needed to just push the fences down with their mass, as happened on Hershel's farm and in "Guts". That could happen someday. Perhaps the Governor could round up a large herd and aim them at the prison.

Someone in Rick's group needs to learn how to build bombs.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

I'm wondering about something...a couple of somethings, actually.

Merle killed 8 guys in his ambush. Well, he took them down and let the walkers get them. At least two were shot in the legs, to take them down without killing them outright.

1) Except the Governor. Was Merle trying for a headshot and Ben stepped in the way, or trying to wound and Ben was shorter and so was shot in the head?

2) The wounded men who were attacked by walkers. When Daryl gets there, they're dead. Dead. Not getting up and becoming walkers. Yeah, some had their guts out and such, but they were not getting up. I know, this allowed Daryl to see them as having been shot (by Merle) and so know that Merle tried to redeem himself in some way. But shouldn't they have become walkers?

Thoughts?

He was clearly aiming for the Gov when idiot boy stepped in front of him and took the bullet instead. It also gave away Merle's position, as Gov looked for where the shot came from and went after him.

Will have to check that part again. Don't know if they took head shots/head damage at some point or if Gov or his men shot them later or what.

Everybody turns at a different rate, Andrea's sister took all night long, after she was bit before she reanimated

Maybe they just hadn't reanimated yet. It can take from minutes to hours, so the first ones to rise would eat the freshly dead but not yet reanimated bodies.

Makes you wonder how much time had passed between Milton dieing and reanimating, certainly would not of took Andrea 2 hours to get the dam pliers and free herself. LOL

I could also see the Gov taking the time to headshot his soldiers but specifically not Merle as a last "fuck you" right?

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

Apparently in the post-apocalyptic world, the worst thing you can do to a person is to leave them to turn into a walker. So, yeah, I think the Governor would further desecrate Merle by leaving him to turn.

The reanimation time was the biggest problem with that scene; in a desperate situation, Andrea would have fought harder to grab the tool with her toes, and once in her hands, twist the chain, which is the easiest way to break handcuff chains.

If played even semi-realistically, she should have been free at least a few minuted before Milton reanimated, giving her enough time to kill him.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

I seem to recall a specific Asian kid who in the same situation, threw himself at a wall until the chair he was tied to broke up into many small pieces.

Is Glen smarter than Andrea or does he just have someone to live for?

Yes, i am saying that Andrea could have saved herself if he was frakking Maggie behind Glen's back, and it is only her prudish homophobia that got her eaten in the final episode.

I mean seriously?

Hasn't she seen a single Saw movie?

Meanwhile if Milton couldn't kill himself, that wussy could have bought Andrea another 5 minutes by taking his own eyes out with his thumbs.

Who doesn't produce a warm chuckle at the sight of some autoenucleation?
