The giant horde has returned (doctor mentions the train and at the end the mass of zoms outside the windows), how will Lee and company combat this?

  • You see quite a number of zombies shuffling past above, when you're in the morgue.

  • @darknessofheart said: What I want to know is what's drawing them further into the city. The train explains how they got near the city, but it stopped and would not make anymore noise to attract attention to the walkers, which means there's something else inside the city that is attracting them since they are all walking to the same location.

    In the comics, a herd just keeps going in the direction it started out in regardless of if there's still something to attract it. One zombie sees another shuffling in a direction and thinks that there's food where that one is headed, so it begins going the same way. Other zombies see THEM together and have the same thought, so more and more zombies group together as they go.

    The train provided the easiest way for the walkers to group up, as most of them along the tracks probably heard the noise. Even after the train had gone too far to be heard or seen by them, every walker kept heading toward Savannah because that's where all the OTHER walkers were going. So even if the train was stopped, they will keep walking until they rot away or find some food.

  • We all saw that walker horde coming in episode four, anyway. Savannah will end up as bad (or even worse) as Atlanta. I wonder what would have happened if our group never met with the horde, Omid wouldn't have hurt his leg, the survivors would be much more shocked when they saw the horde reaching savannah, and so on.

  • Man it seems like it be really easy to just gather a huge mob of Walkers into a giant hole of sorts..

    Throw a loud speaker somewhere start playing eye of the tiger. Slowly all the walkers rise and a montage of walkers heading to the hole would start.

    Ok this is now mandatory in every zombie story ever.

    Because they're smart enough not to walk over cliffs but not smart enough to avoid people with guns. Kirkman logic 101

    wait when did walkers get smart enough to avoid gun users?

  • It might be because the walkers rarely get the oppertunity to learn not to attack people with guns? ;)

    The cavalary might come from offshore hangar ships dropping explosive gifts on the zombies. But since the military been quite quiet the past months that is quite wishful thinking, besideds where would they get jet fuel these days? (Speaking of military, just me who don't buy that tanks threads would be stopped by flesh and bones, run out of fuel yes but not stopped by meat walls?)

    I hope we will see a trick used in the move and apparently the comic too, they smear themselves with dead entrails and pass through zombie groups without them taking notice.

  • The horde will likely not be dealt with until the final chapters. I just can't see Lee and the group running around for the whole episode with zombies chasing them. I hope the main focus of episode 5 will be the walkie-talkie guy, not walkers. Pissed me off that episode 4 was all about walkers.

    Good Idea but I think a better song choice would be Thriller!
