       So Rick is now a badass blood thirsty killer.
    Carl is becoming soulless, like in the comic.
    They're probably going to leave the farm soon. 
      
    Things are looking up.


    Unless Lori ruins it all...Fucking hate Lori.
       appearntly they're still at the farm until the season finale

    Oh yeah
    Kinda funny that I forgot about it, since    They basically proved it by shooting the fat guy twice   
    She didn't die yet though
    (TV spoilers)    Why are you saying he was shot twice. He was shot three times. I dunno I just get really angry every time I see twice.   

    Edited:

    I still don't see the logic in that because being bitten still makes you die and come back.
    Yes, so will    being shot or stabbed, or dying any other way. If your brain can still function you become a zombie when you die, it's as simple as that.   

    Edited:

    The thing I hate most about the show is how they adamantly call the zombies "Walkers." I prefer the comics "Lurkers," and "Roamers," but even then there's a lot of variety. They've even called them zombies at one point in the comics. In the show it's just walker walker walker. Most annoying line ever is when Maggie is talking to Glenn "You're wocker bait." With that accent of hers it made it so annoying.

       It's not the bite that turns you. The bite gives you a fever that eventually, will kill you. THEN, the reanimation begins, after you have died. Everyone is already infected. You can fall in a staircase and break you neck, and then come back as a walker to.

    I was always under the impression in most forms of conventional zombie media that the fever you get is a direct effect of the virus having its way with your body so it can assume control over your motor functions. And I don't know why you're spoiler-tagging that, it's not anything that's actually been confirmed in the show.

    I think they're going with original Romero Night of the Living Dead zombie mechanics. And also    that's how they work in the comics   . (comic spoiler)

    I think I'm done with this thread, there's always one faggot who doesn't spoiltag something.

    Then again, maybe I should start reading the comics. Hmm. Yep.

    That directed at me? Sorry for hating retards that post comic spoiler bullshit. I've already had a few things ruined. Yeah, I did come into this thread about a show. Not see an idiot post comic spoilers with no tag.

    If I knew that absolutely everyone would spoiltag everything then I'd gladly stay, unfortunately there's always going to be idiots who blatantly post a comic spoiler.

    It's just that when this is in the film and television section that's what I expect, Facepunch needs a comic forum/sub-forum or something, this thread is just too unsafe for someone like me.

    I'm not trying to sound like an asshole towards you or anything, don't get me wrong, just explaining myself.

    If I accidentally clicked a spoiler, then it's my fault, but when someone just clearly post a comic spoiler, no tag, then that is what pisses me off.

    I highly recommend reading the comics to anyone who is enjoying the show. The show is very loosely based on the them so it stays fresh even if you know the outcome.

    This is just speculation, but here's my guess for the finale:    Walkers end up finding the farm somehow, swarm it and our heroes have to flee. I put my money on the Greene family getting killed, with the exception of Maggie who will probably end up as part of the main cast. I have a feeling Shane will die as well. If not him then Carol.   
    I read a spoiler thing back at the end of the first half, saying    Shane would be killed by Dale   .

    Also, on a re-watch of that video,    Rick kills the first guy with a headshot, then subdues the fat guy with the two shots, but clearly finishes him with a headshot. Perhaps Jenner did tell him to make sure to shoot in the head even if alive, but I don't think that was the case.

    Well in the next episode    the rest of their group apparently attacks Rick, Hershel and Glenn, so maybe one of them ends up getting captured or something and we find out.

       That makes it sound like the zombies carry two viruses. I'm not arguing that it's not the way they're handling the concept (I haven't read the comics), it just seems a little bit convoluted to me. So the virus doesn't just reanimate people, it also causes them to either secrete deadly chemicals that weren't present in their body before, or generate a secondary virus used just for the sole purpose of putting people down.

    Episode 8 was pretty good. Especially the ending. I do fear two things though.    The barn shootout could indeed be heard by few walkers and then the burning of the bodies. True, they didn't do it at night but it was a bit big.

    Imagine how many diseases a walking corpse is infested with. Now imagine getting all of them into your bloodstream. It's not the zombie virus that kills at all.

    One could argue that a fresh zombie doesn't have any diseases yet, but then you're honestly looking to hard into it. It's fiction after all.

    Yeah it's not really worth it to mull over every little detail in zombie fiction.

    It gets really fucking hard to distinguish spoilers between the current episode and the spoilers from people who have read the comic. I mean, this thread is for the discussion of the Tv series. As someone who has not yet had the time to read the comic, it sucks ass to accidentally read someone spoiling something from the comic in the thread about the television series.

    [COMIC SPOILERS FOR THE TV SERIES]    Dammit, Lori. Don't die. You aren't supposed to die, yet. Fuck you, Lori, you're supposed to be part of the whole "everything is lost" catastrophe when the Governor returns and fucks every goddamn thing up in the prison. Also, I feel like the ending line to Season 2 is "WE ARE THE WALKING DEAD."

       I highly doubt she's going to die, as she is much more important to the story than Sofia was. It's probably just another plot device.

    Agreed, I don't even expect people to have to spoiler tag stuff from the latest episode, as I know if I go in the thread there's going to be discussion about it. But when I click a spoiler and get the plot ruined by some asshat who couldn't take the extra 2 seconds to warn that it was a comic spoiler, I'm not a happy man.
