    Right - and Andrea's sister was bit and "turned". I just remember she had a high fever, was sick, then boom, zombie time. It's hard not knowing the cut and dry rule to turning though.

    Really? I thought it was the best of the season. So many tense moments, and it moved at a very brisk pace.

    Amy died from blood loss and trauma. She was bit in the neck and arm if I remember correctly.


    RV owner? You are not on about Jim are you who was with the old guy from the beginning and they left him to die by the tree?

    Jim died from blood infection.


    And as mentioned before, everyone is infected anyway, the virus is in everybody and when you die, automatically zombiefied one becomes, so many inconsistencies in the show anyway, like dead people who didn't become zombies who have no head trauma at all.

    A bite doesn't kill, infection, trauma or blood loss does. Look at hershel.

    I'm guessing that was for another poster, the second paragraph that is, cause my comment shouldn't have got your panties in a twist. :p


    The rule is: WHATEVER it is that causes the zombies, is something everyone already has. If you stub your toe, get an infection and die, you turn into a zombie, UNLESS your brain is damaged. If someone shoots you in the head and you die, you're dead. A zombie bite kills you because of infection, or blood loss, not because of the zombie "virus."


    And that's from the creator of the walking dead so SHHHHHHHHHH

    Infected with what? Are you suggesting if they gave Jim a shot of Penicillin he would not have turned into a zombie? So it wasn't necessary to cut off Hershel's leg if they had some antibiotics?

    Who knows? But Hershel sure as hell would have had the infection in his whole system, zombie bites him, Saliva enters blood stream, the infection from the saliva spreads through his system where I assume it would attach itself to blood cells if it is indeed caused by that, or it just lies dormant and when they did it takes over.

    He was in trauma, his heart rate would have increased dramatically, the blood would be circulating his body a lot quicker, the infection would have hit his heart and circulated round his systems many times over. Average is about a minute to circulate the body at resting, during stress, exercise, trauma it would pump through the body faster. How long did it take Rick to cut off his leg again 10-20 minutes?

    Hershel should have been dead anyway from the shoddy amputation.

    About the other things, like Jim surviving if he had proper care to his wound, maybe he would have survived, what everybody is infected with is most likely an airborne fungal infection, which probably explains why some people who died didn't turn because they were not in the open air to be infected by it.

    These fungal infections exist today and live in a host and take over power of the host for a limited time once it has died.


    Also do you remember the scene where Andrea stabbed a walker and got a spatter of blood in her eye? Surely that would cause an infection what's the difference between a bit of saliva and a spatter of blood? They both would have entered the bloodstream.


    Either way it's fiction everyone can make there own theories because they left the show so open.

    It's ZIV, Zombie Immunodeficiency Virus. It was created by the CIA and the Reagan administration to get rid of black people. I'm pretty sure this was covered in the comic book.

    I don't read comic books because I've had sex but that's pretty awesome.

    Getting buggered by your pastor doesn't count as real sex. You should have spent less time in Bible Study and more time reading comics. I've got thousands and get more ass than a toilet seat.

    I don't know where you learned arithmetic buddy, but anal sex definitely counts.

    Andrea - both the character and the actress who portrays her - is really annoying. I hope she dies.
