Yeah, but even armless jawless zombies ought to still try and gnaw on you with their upper teeth. Hell, even if you removed all of a zombies teeth I imagine it would still try and gum you to death. We're talking about things that will mindlessly crawl towards you even if they don't have any legs left to walk on. Those walkers on chains seemed to be just standing around all docile. Didn't make any sense.
Gotta love the instant headshots from handguns against moving targets in the dark, and in some cases fired from moving vehicles. I can't even pull something like that off in a video game, how freaking hard would it be in reality? In some cases they were just snapping off shots randomly whilst running, in a panic, surrounded and in the dark. And still dropping walkers with flawless headshots.
To hell with Chris Redfield, put these guys in the next Resident Evil game and watch it turn into a cakewalk.
Who was flying that helicopter at the start of the episode?
Oh Fuck No, this show only staggers forward on the backs of their stupid moves, conversely, without the Umbrella Corporation trying to just fuck everyone over whenever possible, any of the Resident Evil characters would probably end up ruling WD Earth.
I thought that was the helicopter we saw all the way back in the first episode. I don't have it available so I can't compare the two. I thought we were basically being told that these zombies travelled far and wide and by coincidence wandered close to Herschel's farm.
I mean when you think about it, walking all the way from the city to wherever Herschel's farm is would take weeks/months, especially for slow-moving walkers. And it's been a few months since the start of the story IIRC.
I could easily be wrong about this, and it's possible that whoever was piloting that helicopter might be revealed in the next season. But I doubt it. Also, now that I know they're going to do the prison plotline, I am both curious and wary to see the next season. Curious to see what deviations they will make from the comic, wary of what they will keep from it.
Rick saw it's reflection on a building, i think the walkers saw the real thing, started following it, and that is what started the gradual stampede. like a snow ball running downhill and becoming an avalanche, I think they were flashing back to show that this horde has been growing since Rick first went into town. I actually think they would have passed by if Carl hadn't shot Shane. They turned at the sound and changed the direction of the group that was heading across the highway and into the woods. If my spatial orientation is right, by the way, I think they probably would have going straight to the prison, if allowed to progress uninterrupted, the group turned around and didn't continue further along the highway from the point where they left Sophia's supplies. that was the direction the herd was originally stumbling in, and while they walked of the road and into the woods, the cars obviously stayed on the road. They would probably have ended up where the group was eventually if they hadn't turned towards the farm, and the spot the group was camping in was just short of the big walled prison in the distance.
I suppose the herd could resume heading towards the prison, if they were following the retreating cars, which explains why Andrea wasn't COMPLETELY fucked. She was fleeing stragglers. who saw her, and not the main herd. She started after Rick's truck when he left, but I believe she changed direction when she couldn't catch him, to grab the gun bag.
personally I would have headed towards the marshes, because while SHE is smart enough to aim for branches and solid ground, the walkers would have thinned out as they got stuck. In the dark, she runs the risk of getting stuck herself, but she seems to have managed a flight through the woods without turning her ankle, plowing into a tree or pulling her earlier bad habit of not noticing a walker standing next to her.
Also, I'm pretty sure that firing a shotgun out of a car like Glen was would fling you out of it, or at least severly unbalance you, unless it's one of those recoil-less shotguns I hear they have now.
Yeah and they were showing head shots. In Night Time Driving Off Road! I would have been more convinced if there was massive torso damage and a functionally useless walker flopping around on the ground.
Incidently Glen was a shitbag to Rick as well. Equating a barn full of walkers to the knowledge of infection? Seriously? Glen if you told everyone about the barn "because it was the right thing to do" you're an impractical idiot. You should have done it, because it was an imminent threat that needed to be identified, if not dealt with. The only remote comparison, is that if Rick hadn't told them and someone had died unbitten, they might have resurrected and killed someone. That COULD be Glenn's concern as maggie's suicidal sister was definitely that risk, but seriously? if she'd known, what would she have done about? Exactly what she did anyway, I think Glen's being a whiny bitch, Rick has done more than enough for him, that if he gets ballsy enough to take his woman and run he'll very quickly regret it.
