Honestly, I've really enjoyed this thread. I don't want to have to leave it. Why oh why do people need to keep revealing what happened in the comics? Why do you feel compelled to mention it?  Sure, t

My Negan costume got a lot of love (and hate) at Halloween parties over the weekend. 

All the leaders standing out in the open.   I kept waiting for Carl and Rick to have a Dr. Evil and Scott exchange from Austin Powers.  "Dad, why not just pop him.. one shot, bam!  I'll do it myself..

Who says he only has 20 guys?

Pretty sure He has a lot more than 20.. Hilltop has only seen groups of up to 20.. No idea how someone took that comment to mean that was it for his group size :confused:

Give everyone guns and mow down Negans guys whenever they show up for payment.  Then pull the "I dunno" if they come back ask where their guys are.  And if they do come back and ask, mow them down again.

I have a feeling we won't be seeing that sort of plan.

Because zombies carry a different, supposedly incurable, infection virus that kills living humans rather quickly once infected.  Although we've seen on the show that can happen in a matter of minutes or a matter of days depending on the individual.  There are two theories of how this happens in relation to the zombie virus that every human is already carrying with the results being the same:

A- The virus transmitted by a zombie bite is a "secondary" virus that is simply a deadly virus that kills a human and once the human dies the zombie virus everyone is carrying reanimates the dead.  Sometimes this is blamed on parasitic infection of the decaying zombie's mouth, but, since it kills some humans in a matter of minutes it's most certainly a "secondary" virus and not just bacterial.

B- The virus transmitted by a zombie bite is a "reaction" virus that triggers the zombie virus that everyone is carrying and the zombie virus both kills the living and reanimates the dead.  Without a bite the zombie virus is simply triggered by death.

There is no chicken or the egg question with zombies.  The first ever zombie was most certainly an infected human, whether by scientific or natural means, whose death triggered the zombie virus.  The biting and introduction of the secondary/reaction virus isn't what started the outbreak, it's what accelerated living human death triggering the zombie virus.

Not really the case. At least, according to Kirkman. He basically says the bite causes infection or blood loss that kills you:

 

Quote

"The rule is WHATEVER it is that causes the zombies, is something everyone already has. If you stub your toe, get an infection and die, you turn into a zombie, UNLESS your brain is damaged. If someone shoots you in the head and you die, you're dead. A zombie bite kills you because of infection, or blood loss, not because of the zombie "virus."" —Robert Kirkman

That still doesnt explain any sort of difference between a living person biting you and a walker biting you.  Then again, the explanation is probably going to be "nobody knows why".  Which is fine.

Wat?  Yeah it does. Zombies are really dirty thus their bites cause infection. They are also more likely to keep biting/eating leading to blood loss.

That matches what I said. Infections can be viral and its obviously not any sort of normal infection.

:lmao: I can't believe this is what they're going with.  An infection from a dirty bite doesn't kill you in a few hours.

You know what would work?  Remote detonated bomb on a pig.  Let a pig loose in the quary.  The dead will go nuts trying to catch it.  Eventually they will.  Then they do the zombie dogpile and you trigger your bomb and boom, all gone.  Do that 10 or so times and you're done.

You guys are forgetting about the zombies new diamond hardened chompers that rip through living flesh and sinew like shuke downing pickle juice.

So when someone dies and they turn 10 minutes later, they are significantly more "dirty" then they were 10 minutes ago?

Again, I am sure there is no answer, nor do I ever really want it to be explained (just fun to discuss for ####s and giggles), but the question is:

What changes from the time someone is alive, dies, and turns into a walker 15 minutes later that makes a bite go from nothing more than a bite to a completely incurable disease?  Remember this all started when people who were bitten were getting the best medical treatment possible.

I think Glenn dies by Negan. Twice this episode Maggie was pushed into a leadership role. Glenn's death will be the catalyst for her to become a leader.

Maybe the writers grow balls and off Rick...so prepping her to lead.

They seemed to be setting up Maggie to be more involved with Hilltop, my thought is they stick with the "kill glen " storyline to set her free.

Maybe Maggie becomes the new leader of Hilltop.

When they asked how many people Negan had, Hilltop person answered 20.  I don't know what I was thinking when I took that to mean that Negan has 20 people.  What was I thinking?

I laughed my @zz off over the hilltop defense.

Dude had a stick...a freaking pointy stick!

So awesome.

Go find some ammo or a reloader for god's sake.

Better yet, they have a blacksmith who can forge things.  Forge arrowheads and go with longbows from the wall top.  At least it would match the period of their technology at this point.

See it's kinda like a franchise. Run your own show but pay up your royalty. 

Isn't this how the Mongols basically controlled conquered all of Asia for a long time?

They said they seen groups as large as 20 people. It wasn't implied that was the total number.
