      Maybe they are more attracted to his movement and noises than a desire to eat him. He escaped while his horse did not.

      well if people were pissed about fast walkers or climbing walkers, they're really going to be pissed about a walker that can run, drive, shoot, have sex, etc etc

      ...eat normal food (and not eat people), possibly impregnate his wife, sweat, piss, take a dump, sleep, speak...why, it's almost as if he's alive and not really a zombie at all!

      That's all well and good as a theory, but the problem is they spent a season and a half --- and 5 years of comic book history ---- establishing that they're slow and weak.

      While I've enjoyed this show since the pilot episode, I do feel that some episodes hit, some miss, and that season two has been a bit of a slow miss.

      Until last night. The confrontation, the cinematography, the opening...I feel they just nailed it. Excellent episode.

      Except when they're strong, fast, and don't forget sneaky! After last week, I thought the I-used-to-be-stuck-in-the-mud-but-now-I-am-a-vampire! stealth zombie was a uniquely talented aberration. Now I think zombies must exude some chemical that clouds the senses of the living. Zombie Shane was moanin' and groanin' and doing everything short of saying "Braaaaaaains!" and still nearly managed to sneak up behind Rick.

      Alternatively, the writers/directors won't allow a little thing like continuity to get in the way of what they think is a cool scene.

      I'm 42, so beer is fine. Preferrably craft/micro-brew.

      Let me re-phrase. I don't think he is a walker in the traditional sense. I think he has normal physiology. We have seen that he bleeds and feels pain like a normal person. What I mean is that he was re-animated completely. Almost like the virus was a "fountain of youth" experiment gone wrong, and Rick is the only one (or one of a very few) where it worked correctly.

      That could be the angle. The military were working on something to allow fatally wounded soldiers to be re-animated. No need to recruit, re-train, etc. - saves money and lives. Or perhaps it was Oil of Olay's next experimental product line gone horribly wrong.

      Is it wrong to hope that the baby miscarries, re-animates in Lori's womb, and falcon punches the crap out of her?

      You sir are either a genius or crazy. Either way stop filling my head with all of these possibilities.

      Question, my girl and I are having this debate, when Jenner supposedly told Rick about people carrying the infection, she wants to know why Rick didn't tell the rest of the crew about it? My reasoning is due to causing mayhem in the crew without having proof that what Jenner said is true. Her reasoning is due to the fact that if the group doesn't know and someone dies of natural causes then the rest of the group will not be on guard and could potentially get attacked by the zombie. So what do you guys think of Rick's reasoning?

      Wasn't that more or less the idea at work in Resident Evil?

      Well, first off, we don't know if that's what he told Rick. He also might have said that Lori's pregnant. There were a couple other theories as well.

      Honestly, I don't think there's a rational reason as to why he hasn't told the group whatever was said. I don't know any reason how the "let's talk about what we learned at the CDC" conversation hasn't already happened. And if it was that she's pregnant, that should have come up in convo when him and lori were talking about her being pregnant. I'll be interested to see if there's a good reason or just more bad writing

      Also, if Rick is a zombie I'll turn this show off and never watch again. The comic is good because it's a story about people and the zombie's are just a plot device --- they could be 'sickness', 'aliens', 'wars', etc. It's not actually about the zombies. If the show keeps focusing on zombie plot lines as ways to make the show exciting, I'll be disappointed. If they went out of their way to go with some campy twist like that, then I'd just give up.

      Looking forward to the next episode though --- I'm curious how they'll wrap it all up.

      Or if Rick wakes up to find it was all a horrible dream he had while in the hospital in a coma.

      If that happens, I'll stop reading the comic to ensure that no more of my time or money goes to support Kirkman in any way

      I bet the secret will be kept for the duration of the show.

      Kirkman said on Talking Dead we would find out this season what Jenner said. Still one more episode to find out. My bet is that it won't be a surprise.

      it would be damn hard to explain the fast spread of zombie-ism with the "everyone-is-infected-turns-at-death" theory. plus the dead non-zombies on the highway in cars. it reeks of lazy writing just like lost.

      I think the issue is that in real life, "slow zombies" would not really work out. There would be weird crap popping up, but people would get wise to it pretty quickly and start killing them on their own. Something like Dawn of the Dead (2004) or 28 Days Later would be more explicable.

      It's kind of why in all zombie literature, the story always goes from isolated incidents to some sort of scene where the protagonist wakes up from a deep sleep/coma/amnesia and discovers the world overrun. It's hard to explain that middle ground. Hell, it's not even really explained in World War Z. It basically goes from isolated incidents to "The Great Panic" to Battle of Yonkers.
