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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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. ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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.

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 ...

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.

After they left in ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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. ;-)

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") ...

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."

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 ...

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. ...

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 ...

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 ...

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..."

The Governor stamps out anything he perceives as a threat to his position and community. He has a vision for survival and expects all others to follow it.
