This is taken from an interview on thewrap.com: Robert Kirkman reveals why zombies don't actually exist on "Walking Dead" So, why are the living dead referred to as "walkers" instead of zombies on "The Walking Dead"? One of the pleasures of watching AMC's new "Walking Dead" aftershow — "Talking Dead" — is the chance for fans to get answers to ...

Did ‘The Walking Dead’ Cook Up a ‘Breaking Bad’ Reference? Robert Kirkman, a creator of the “Walking Dead” comics and a producer of the television series, said that the inclusion of the blue meth was indeed "a little Easter egg we were doing for AMC fans" (The Walking Dead and Breaking Bad are both AMC shows)

I believe you're referring to S04E13: Alone, though Daryl and Glenn encounter Bob Stookey at the beginning of the episode, not the end. This was a flashback to when they first met Bob who had been surviving alone for a while. As this recap explains The episode began with a flashback montage of Bob on his own walking through the woods and looking ...

Basing the cultural impact on viewers has never been an accurate gauge of quality or longevity. The Transformers movies will bring in more viewers but it's not the kind of movie that still gets talked about years later like The Usual Suspects (Domestic Total Gross: $23,341,568) or other critical successes that don't rake in hundreds of millions of dollars. ...

It would be a very dangerous journey, requiring the expenditure of vast amounts of resources for something which does not have a defined objective. It is difficult to drive to and through cities due to the roads being blocked by broken down cars, herds of walkers, general rubble etc. Walking would be very dangerous as there are natural hazards, walkers, ...

From Examiner.com Some fans noticed that Tyreese had some sort of carrier on his back. Inside it resembled a baby, although the shot of it wasn't close up. This caused some confusion with fans on whether baby Judith was dead or alive. On "The Talking Dead," the subject of baby Judith was brought up and it was confirmed that the infant is ...

The term "zombie" is never used in The Walking Dead, as far as I can recall. The term Rick's group uses to refer to the animated corpses is simply "walker." The inhabitants of Woodbury use the term "biters" to refer to the animated corpses. From a viewer's standpoint, "zombie," "walker," and "biter" are synonyms. In-universe, nobody uses the term ...

I don't think the virus was just supposed to be a regular flu, I think it was supposed to be some form of zombie Swine Flu, and here's why: The virus was zoonotic as it infected and killed Violet, the pig they were keeping, just before the first infections in the prison: Zombies are also infected with the virus: In 2009 (just around when season 4 was ...

It was her boyfriend and a friend of his. It was mentioned on the comic but not on the TV show (as far as I remember). In the early stages of the outbreak, Michonne runs on foot to her house. This attracts a street full of zombies to follow her. While she arrives home, she meets her boyfriend, Mike and his brave but idiotic best friend, Terry. A ...

From Wikipedia Influenza spreads around the world in seasonal epidemics, resulting in about three to five million yearly cases of severe illness and about 250,000 to 500,000 yearly deaths,[18] rising to millions in some pandemic years. In the 20th century three influenza pandemics occurred, each caused by the appearance of a new strain of the virus in ...

I think your hypothesis is correct. Going by what was said on the after-show, The Talking Dead, and the general consensus on the official site from AMC, we are indeed being presented with a plot device that sees everyone being infected with the 'zombie' virus, which is then activated upon death. Yes, you can be turned from a bite or bad scratch (or at ...

When we first see Daryl with the crossbow he is using manufactured bolts, with colored plastic fletching. Later we see him making his own wooden bolts with feather fletching. So clearly he did not recover those bolts, which are probably lighter and stronger than anything he could make out of wood. So we can assume he lost more than the one used to shoot ...

I saw it as a re-telling of his upbringing. It was a gut reaction to being around a stack of cash and jewels. However, given the amount of time they've been living in the Walking Dead universe, I found it odd that he would suddenly exhibit such behavior. The darts thing made sense, but Daryl is a survivor and should have been more practical at that point ...

There can be numerous reasons. You have to remember that media like TV shows and film have to cover stories in a far more restricted timeframe than print media can. This means they can't dwell on story lines or certain characters for too long. This May result in shallower character development, characters being dropped, added, or altered. You may also have ...

In one of the first episodes introducing the character of the Governor, we see him and his men murder a team of soldiers heavily armed, to rid them of their weapons. If he did not had killed them, but had instead incorporated them to its little community, with their equipment, training, and experience as a unified team, the soldiers might have been strong ...

I'm assuming they were destroyed in Herschel's farmhouse fire that terminated the last season. Rick and Lorie were living there with Carl. They would not have been able to be retrieved as that season finale was devoted to escaping the zombie swarm.

I'm going to convert my comment into a better answer. Unless it's explained in the comic series, there is no explanation. But, if we look at certain facts from the show we can speculate as to the reason to a point that could make sense. The first attempt failed (started to rain) That type of scene may have been too much for audiences. It was pretty ...

Older model vehicles such as the one Merel hot wires did not come stock with alarms but if you look at the upgraded wheels (22"?) and upgraded stereo then it's safe to assume the owner also installed an alarm. I'd imagine he didn't think there would be an alarm. However, the whole idea of this car sitting for 1yr+ and still starting is ridiculous. It would ...

The term 'Zombie' is definitely used in the comic books. I just so happen to be reading them at the moment, and in the last 10 or so pages of edition 12 they have been referred to as zombies twice. I only really noticed after reading this question, so it's quite possible they've been called that from the beginning.

There was a episode where a Zombie was trappen in a fountain. So the group tried to get out the Zombie from the fountain without the Zombie loses blood. So i think in the universe from the Walking Dead people cannot eat Zombie meat. ;-)

There is always a gap to bridge when adapting a book/comic/graphic novel into a TV show. A graphic novel is not addressing the same audience as the TV show. There is even a difference between the ways such literary works are adapted for Movies and TV shows. Given the episodic release format for the shows spanning over different seasons, the makers try to ...

I think that they may be modeling the initial fear and then subsequent relaxing of fears in the same way HIV/AIDS was viewed initially. At first it was believed that being around people that were infected would cause you to be infected as well(drinking after someone, etc), but this was eventually dispelled. From the Dr. at the CDC, Rick learns that they ...

It is currently unconfirmed. The buckles being undone do not confirm anything as if you were to try to pull the baby out without undoing them they are quite likely to be the things that give first (rather than the straps). Even if someone had taken her out there is no guarantee that they got away safely. However, it is perfectly plausible that someone ...

There is no answer. Even creator Robert Kirkman (on the episode of Talking Dead that followed the show) would not confirm anything. He did joke "that's a lotta blood in that car-seat, I don't know. (laughs) Yeah. You'll have to tune in."

From someone who watched the show: The baby was in a "papoose" on Tyrese's back. There was no need to kill the baby, she was alive and well when Tyrese and Carol returned to find Lizzy covered in Mika's blood, and they would have made sure Judith was well protected from Lizzy afterwards.

In The Walking Dead, everyone supposedly has the virus dormant in them. So, if they absolutely HAD to, they could possibly eat the zombies without repercussion if they could get their minds around the cannibalism factor. And, in extreme cases (i.e. the Argentinian soccer team whose plane crash and the ordeal surrounding it inspired the book/movie "Alive") ...

We still don't know what he did. Maybe he worked at the country club and moved peoples cars and they fired him and they treated him like shit only give him small tips. And the shed was his house and didn't want to tell beth.

It has been suggested in several episodes that the answers lie in other parts of the country, and it has also been suggested that they're all lies. I can't remember the episode but one of the characters, when talking about safe-havens, says something like, "On the east coast they say it's the west coast, on the west coast they say it's the east coast..." I ...

Accompanying map (Only approximate locations.) At the start of the outbreak people was told to go to the cities where the army could keep watch. Rick himself, after his wakeup and biking around the hometown, leaves for Atlanta as that is the place most plausible his family has gone. After his meetup with the family outside the city and their escapades they ...

The cash and jewels are light and easily carried. I assumed he was taking them just in case they could be used as a bribe or something at some point. It might well be unlikely but that does not mean the chance should be ignored.
