Forgot that this was the last episode until February 12th when they air S02E08 "Nebraska." Just got hooked on this show two weeks ago after it appeared on Netflix watch instantly and blew through 11 of the 13 episodes. Watching the last two tonight. I'm the kinda guy who normally waits until a show is completely done before watching it (or at least has a good 4 season buffer to work with) because I hate breaks like this. Not sure I want to read the comic until the show is done with either because I don't want any spoilers. Reading this thread though has made me sad to learn that the comic doesn't offer an explanation for the reanimated dead because that leads me to believe the TV series won't address it either. I'm not expecting a full blown explanation or back-story of how it started, but just something to hint at what happened. Something on the periphery that maybe the characters come across in their travels to show a bio-weapon experiment gone wrong, or another "authority-type" figure like Doctor Jenner who can shed just a tiny bit of light on what happened. Something; anything. There is still, of course, the whisper that needs to be answered; maybe my wish is in that little tid-bit. Although my suspicion though is that the writers just put it in and they have no idea yet what Jenner said to Rick.
