Your head spinning yet?
Last week and last night’s episodes of THE WALKING DEAD left A LOT of my facebook friends and family baffled. I’m no expert by-all-means but I do have my own opinions and thoughts and I will try to address as many as possible. I wish I knew Robert Kirkman. Personally to get into his head but unfortunately, that is not the case.
So here we go…
What is up with them killing two big personalities off? Hmmm… well…. They both die in the comics regardless. However, Shane dies before Dale does. In the comics Shane dies similar to the way he did in last night episode; being shot down by Carl. The weird thing about last night’s episode is Carl raised his gun before Shane even reanimated and righted himself from his grassy knoll. *raises eye brow* Error in the actors part or was his initial target his dad? I doubt it. Carl had been watching the whole thing through binoculars; he had to have seen Shane drawing his weapon first. He had too!
And... why is that damn kid walking around like it's nobody's business. I mean, good thing cause Rick would be goner but come on!
Now on to the reanimation of Randall and Shane. These are the first two characters that we have seen come back from the beyond and threaten the survival of our beloved apocalyptic friends. How’s that possible without being bitten or scratched? This is where my opinion comes in. I have several thoughts but I’m more slated to the understanding that the disease must be airborne now and we, the survivors, are already infected. We just need to die before we succumb to the virus. Even though my “logic” might have some holes in it like: if that’s the case then how is a future baby born healthy? Maybe the womb protected him/her (I know which one but not spoiling it for you all)? I have no clue people. It’s all speculation.
The Walkers are evolving so that must mean the virus is too. Walkers are stronger, more calculating than we originally thought. Who would have thought a seemingly weak zombie would have the strength to rip open a rather healthy man’s chest? We didn’t. So why can’t the disease be airborne? It can!
Other reasons behind the reanimation without being bitten, scratched, or airborne?
~ It could be in the water. Hershal and several other survivors were pumping water out of an underground well. Seepage?
~ Randall’s wrists were cut from the handcuffs. Maybe they were contaminated from a previous handcuffed victim.
~ Shane was stabbed. Maybe the knife Rick used had also contaminated. Coincidence?
Do you have any predictions or opinions about the virus or the show in general? Please share.
