  1. That obviously doesn’t look good… Not sure Doc Marius will be able to save the day. Is this young sailor zombifying?

    • One of the things that always annoyed me about TWD was the way the zombie virus works (or doesn’t).

      Getting bit is supposedly enough to activate the virus you already have in you (because you zombify if you die), but people are forever getting splashed with gore and reaching into zombies and whatnot.

      Now, people are also forever getting hurt and doing hard work with their hands. How is it that we have yet to see anyone turn because of getting splashed in on their mucus membranes (eyes, nose, mouth) or through tiny (or not so tiny) cuts, cracks, and abrasions in the skin of their hands, arms, and faces? What about inhalation of blood/mucus spray into the mucus membranes of the respiratory system?

      Who knows what that beast was which they found floating, or if or how it may function as a vector for the zombie virus, but it seems pretty clear that Rupert sticking his lacerated hand into the rotting meat was probably a bad idea, even in a non-zombie world of gangrene, staphylococcus, and the like.
