The way I understood it is thus: Beth has just realized that Dawn's power lies completely in making others subservient to her, and Dawn knows it. Dawn needs a ward who will listen to her and obey her. Noah filled that part prior to Beth's arrival. When Noah escapes, Dawn now needs to bind Beth to her, so she starts being nicer to her, covering up for her ...

You're, perhaps, assuming that all the walkers are the same age. With each new death (and a walker doesn't have to be involved, because everyone has the virus in them), a new walker arises. You would expect that the walker population would eventually shrink and be gone, which is a great theory postulated by Andrew Martin. That is actually a logical ...

TL;DR: Magic? To keep the show on air as long as possible? The virus somehow keeps them alive? All viable options. Long Answer: To shamefully steal paraphrase from the answers given on the same topic over at the Sci Fi Stack Exchange: As most people are aware... Georgia (and most of the Southeastern USA) gets extremely hot and humid throughout the ...

As for official sources, both the actress and an executive producer offered their opinion on the matter. Says Walking Dead executive producer Gale Anne Hurd: She gets that Dawn was the kind of person who made up the rules as she went along. She would do anything to not only survive, but to maintain power. There is no negotiating with someone like that, ...

Here is one explanation I've found: The aluminum baseball bat is arguable one of the most popular mid-ranged weapons against zombies, and is so for good reason. An aluminum baseball bat is slightly over 3 feet in length and 33 ounces in mass. Sports stores are commonplace in cities and thus, baseball bats are plentiful and incredibly easy to gain access ...

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 ...

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 ...

The character's name is Abraham, not Jim. He heard Eugene yelling "Help, help me" followed by "It's them, get 'em". This may have sounded like "Jim" but according to the subtitles (via Amazon streaming), those are the lines. After Abraham killed the walkers, he turned and was walking away, in a daze, when Eugene said he was on a very important mission. This ...

Because it is fiction; entertainment, first and foremost. It's not intended to be a scientifically accurate treatise on exactly how it would be like in a post apocalyptic world short on people. Folks would be milling around all day gathering roots, scratching themselves, and wondering where to walk to next. Not exactly great entertainment. How the various ...

MATH! Ok, So I found this cool article about Star Trek Into Darkness that looks into the science a bit. Warning, there are some minor spoilers ahead if you haven't seen it. In the film, the article discusses Khan's ability to crush skulls with his bare hands: The cunning villain Khan Noonien Singh [...] betrays his temporary allies to exact revenge on ...

According to the IMDb, it is the only episode so far: Unlike in any previous episode, there is a 'stinger' scene, ie. after the end credits are completely over.

After they left in ...

Cooking at the proper temperature will ensure that any potential virus is killed. This is why there are recommended temperatures for properly cooking steak and chicken; that heat kills viruses like salmonella and such. This is also why menus at restaurants mention properly cooked meals, and some will not serve "runny" eggs because of the risk of ...

First off, you have to die first for the infection to turn you into a walker. Second, as far as I know, the people at Terminus were eating humans whom they killed and who haven't turned yet, and who probably can't turn anymore, since we could see in S05E01 that they chopped them and cut them up in portions. This means that even if the infection was ...

This is a short one but might do the trick: I distinctly remember Milton Mamet saying the creature's metabolism is a lot slower than a human's, which explained why they can go for so long without food. This directly implies that at some level they're still biologically alive. I don't remember the exact episode; I think it was when he and Michonne were ...

As was shown in last night's episode, "Four Walls and A Roof," Bob was likely crying because he was, in fact, bitten by the walker that dragged him under the water earlier in the day. He may have been contemplating suicide, and/or crying because he was building a relationship with Sasha and will now never get to fully see how it would turn out due to the ...

It is a common fact on TV that combat and injuries are stylized to make it look good rather than realistic. Have a look at pretty much any film fight where someone knows a martial art and compare that to someone who knows a martial art fighting for real. They are worlds apart. Even if you look at American Wrestling and BJJ you can see the difference. ...

I think it means that Beth realized Dawn had no power, and was as scared as everyone else. Dawn was merely the ruler of a small kingdom, a kingdom that was fragile. She depended on, and exploited, fear to remain as its leader. She probably killed (Hanson?), the former king to assume the top spot, and she merely had to watch her back for the next up-and-comer ...

It's usually a combination of liquid latex, fake blood and some other materials. Special Effects guru Tom Savini once used real pig intestines, but apparently the stench was so offensive he had to re-think his strategy. I've seen this description on a few sites: Lay out multiple layers of liquid latex on a flat surface, like a glass or marble ...

Beth was walking away w/ her group til Dawn made the last minute demand for Noah. Just before Dawn does that, she turns slightly to her officers and then speaks. Her sociopathic control was at risk. She was all about maintaining her power and could not let herself appear weak in front of the others. It was who she was was at her core. Beth finally "got ...

I know this is a kind of old topic but here is a link that you might like! Walking Dead is a Breaking Bad sequel Basically, it is a research made by HitFlix that has gone viral recently. It shows that AMC's has been deliberatly putting signs that both shows are in the same universe, some fans going has far as saying that the blue meth is the cause of the ...

I think that when Beth said she got it, it is because Dawn put the fault on the others cops about how the hospital was managed. Each times she talked about what they had to do in order the other cops kept protecting the group. In the episode she said that her mentor died because he loved to help people but he put him in risky situation sometimes. She didn't ...

I will try to expand this answer a little more tomorrow.. Most of the fence zombies are latex props, not actually people. I'll try to find some interviews where they talk about this. Here's a segment on how they lop off heads.

Pretty sure it was Pete. On the Talking Dead, although they didn't say who. Morgan was asked how he reacted to Rick executing. Chris then stopped as though he knew he just said something he shouldn't of.

I vote Rick shot Reg. He was going to turn anyway and Deanna knows this. Also the trauma of killing Reg by slicing his throat may just be the incentive that that "porch dick" Pete needs to clean his act up. Not that Rick will let him have Jess back.

The most strict answer would be: Not really faithful A better answer would be: It has the main point the same. There are tremendous differences between the comic and the TV adaptation, but they haven't got off track (that much). There people that have died in the show, that are still alive in the comic and people (like Daryl) that don't exist at all in ...

OK for one thing all zombies must be alive to some extent, because you have to destroy the brain to kill them right? If you think about it that that means the brain is working or working to an extent. For them to move, the brain must be functional enough for the body to use basic functions provided by the nervous, muscle, and skeletal systems. That's never ...

In episode 2, Strangers, just before Bob is abducted we see a gash carved into a tree. I presumed this was made by the gang from Terminus. Then in the next episode, Four Walls and a Roof, the leader of the terminus gang, Gareth, is telling Bob why they did what they did. He says: You know, we marked our way here so that we could find our way back ...

You have to understand what triggers zombieism. The plot indicates every person has the virus in them but dormant because they are alive. This nags me a bit because viruses can only spread using the cell and to use the cell the body must be living. And cells die all the time, so if the virus was in the cell already it would trigger when the cell died - this ...
