Funny, I assumed that the dead and sick pigs suggested some sort of swine/human influenza. The kid just got sick, slipped in the shower while ill and reanimated normally.
I know I should get over it, but considering that the writers are trying to show that the survivors have been fortifying/prepping for walker combat, I can't help being annoyed by the lack of basic precautions.
They still walk around without even basic clubs. They have time to grow a fucking garden but they don't all have a spear/club with their name on it with them at all times? And why in hell wouldn't they lock down the cell blocks at night? Or make a perimeter of cars around the fence to keep walkers from piling against it?
