    Yeah, and it looks like someone might be using them as a weapon. So it looks like two of the ideas mentioned upthread might be coming true.
    That's a pretty great trailer. Looks like the season should at least get off to a good start.

    Well, that makes sense. The walkers would have had months, maybe over a year, to gather into larger and larger herds. When one of them stumbles over a settlement, even without targeting humans, they'll overwhelm fences and other obstacles. It doesn't help that someone seems to be attracting walkers to the prison!

    The Walkers seem to operate in a "herd mentality" one walks around until it encounters another one then there's two walking around until they encounter another.... There may be a sense of an "alpha dog" on some level here too. But it does seem that someone in the prison group (one of the Woodberry survivors) is leading the Walkers to (into) the prison. (I doubt it's The Governor, however.) I also wonder if that story will move away from the prison this year and onto whatever the next setting is that's used in the comics.

    ^I think it's simpler than that. One zombie makes a noise which attracts another zombie. 2 zombies making noise attracts a third and so on.

    What's the human-to-walker ratio in TWD? 1000:1? 5000:1? Whatever it is, even a small herd could overwhelm the prison defenses.

    That's a good trailer. I do think that the Governor is probably behind the buildup of zombies, though. They said he was still out there.

    It's a good trailer. Lots more zombie fodder now!

    I was thinking that whoever is doing the things in the trailer is the person that was watching Carol from the woods when she was practicing a c section on a walker. I don't remember them ever revealing who that was.

    I think they eventually confirmed that was Andrew, one of the prisoners (the one Rick leaves apparently to his death, but later conspires to get walkers into the prison, leading to the death of T-Dog and Lori.)

    It is familiar territory for this series, though.

    "We just lost 12 of our own, 2 in cold blood"
    I noticed Beth was only in one those scenes, I wonder if the "in cold blood" part is the same as what happens in the comics.

    There is also a scene with Carol and a bandana, I wonder if the new threat it the zombies mutating somehow, anyone notice the are several scenes where they seem to be bleeding from their eyes?

    Since Kirkman seems dead set on his zombies evolving in any way (and the new showrunner is apparently the first who's also a big fan of the comics), this seems unlikely.

    I imagine the new threat is key to zombie behaviour and numbers. Like, say, something like the giant zombie herd that ended season two is headed for the prison.

    So....

    Daryl vs. Tyrese (and Tyrese hits Rick). I'm guessing something happens to....

    ...early on.

    Oh fuck, I hope not. I actually wondered between that line and
    the shot of a blood trail heading into a doorway followed by a horrified look on Tyrese's face if they might be doing the serial killer story from the prison. I somehow didn't think about Beth being one of the victims though - although she could also be like Andrea in that storyline from the comics, just barely escaping. I thought they'd skipped over that storyline as being too gruesome, but....

    Is there a video of the trailer somewhere that can be seen outside of the USA?

    Could be editing to lead audiences into making assumptions--expecting a shock, only to have something else occur.

    this is the link that i followed from earlier in the thread, there's some text at the top of the video that says that it's for non -us people. Works fine from the uk anyway.

    :lol: Yea the show is insane already. How they do this will be interesting.

    Speaking of zombies - math professors are now using the zombie plague as a way to stimulate students to solve math equations:
