Easy... the bell calls the zombies to the church, the "others" go in and kill the zombies. At least that's what I was thinking towards the end of the show, when the bells were set so often on the timer.

Obviously nearer the nuke plant which would just keep running...

Seems like they do things they used to do when they were living. In the 1st season there were a bunch just sitting in the bus in the city, and some just sitting in cars.

I thought it was weird as shit too that they were all just sitting in the church. I am SOOO looking forward to see what the next episode has in store for us. The lady and I love cuddling up to a gory zombie thriller.

They call them herds. It hasn't really been explained on the show or the graphic novel.

Go on... I like weird. I haven't read the novels, so I'm still pretty new to the series. Is it similar to "Land of the Dead" where the zombies basically resumed their day to day habits? The bells tolled, so they went to church? The herds all walked the freeway because they were used to travelling that way every day?

Just throwing out ideas here. Since it's all based on the Romero "model" of zombie, I suppose it's possible.

Not a huge spoiler, but *SPOILER* nonetheless.


In the book, Rick takes his son to Hershel's farm. After getting him patched up, they stay there a few days. They are doing target practice and shoot a zombie. Basically Hershel freaks out because they killed one of his neighbors. They then find out that he has been rounding them up and keeping them in his barn. He thinks that if they find a cure for it, he will be able to save his friends and family. His son became a zombie. You can probably guess that something happens, the zombies get out and it's a mess.

I think you just convinced me to pick up the graphic novel/novels and start reading.

Half way related, have you read World War Z? Terrific book, details the infection, the war, and the recolonization after a zombie apocalypse.

I listened to the audio book. It was ok...kind of a neat idea. I also read the zombie survival guide by the same author, Max Brooks, son of Mel Brooks.

I really like The Walking Dead because it doesn't end. After a zombie movie, you're usually stuck wondering, well, now what happens? You don't usually ever get the long term survival plan, which is the most interesting aspect to the genre, IMO.
