Take care of a walker?

posted by Phil_TWD on - last edited - Viewed by 93 users

Let's say someone you loved turned to a walker and you didn't want to kill or hurt her/him, would it be possible to take care?

As in, feeding and washing?

Perhaps there would be a solution and allow people to turn back to humans again, which is why I'd also prefer not to kill. I'd rather go with than stay, then.

Example:
(TWD TV) If Daryl had the chance to lock his brother Merle and keep him alive regardless of being a walker, I think he'd might because he loved him despite of his badass attitude. Maybe he would, maybe not.

  • Cure is impossible. The Walkers stop regenerating most of their cells, and so they begin to degrade, hence why they look like corpses. If you ever cured them, they would die almost instantly, because of lack of functioning organs, and half of the brain being dormant. In terms of taking care of them, you could keep on in a cage, feed it raw meat every now and then. It doesn't matter really, it will die eventually and doesn't need food or anything.

  • Yeah, Hershel tried to put Shawn in the barn in vain hope he could be cured.

    Didn't turn out well.

    In a ZA, you may not have this level of capability. Still, if you're in a secure location and you are the one actively researching a cure, and you're close to a breakthrough, then keeping a walker within biting distance of you may seem like a good idea.

    If you're like the rest of us, say goodbye to your friend, put a bullet in its head and move on....quickly.

  • You could at least put "TV show spoilers" in the title. This is the forum for the game and that episode hasn't broadcast everywhere yet.

  • Well... In my opinion it is too late to save walkers. Until you could stop them from turning, I mean, then it would be pointless. Once they turned, they were dead. You can't save dead people, so how can you cure them and bring them back to life? I'd rather just end them or flee if I couldn't.

  • If it were an "I am Legend" situation, SPOILERRRRRRRRSSSSSSSS where you're close to a breakthrough and need 'zombies' to experiment on, and you know that one day you will be able to fix them entirely, then yes, I'd probably keep my loved ones around.
    I wouldn't turn them back first, though. They'd be the last I turned back, barring they are near the point of no return. Do unzombied zombies keep the memories of eating people alive? Of turning people they loved into other zombies?
    I don't know that I'd want to come back if I had eaten my daughter to the point that she couldn't come back as a human being. I 'wake up' so to speak, and my daughter's so far gone she couldn't even be a zombie, let alone a cured human being. I have to walk around with the memory of her crying and asking Mommy to stop. Fuck all that - put a bullet in my brain!

    The only way I'd think it wasn't too late to save a zombie would be if they had never infected anyone else (minus a small bite), didn't have extensive damage (had their stomach/face eaten), and hadn't rotted too much. If those things had happened, I think it would be beyond cruel to bring them back.

    But as to IF it could happen SPOILERSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS Michonne and Governor both have zombified friends/family that they have taken care of. As well as Morgan.

  • Take... care... of a walker?

    Does not compute. :D

    I don't care who it is, if it's dead and it's trying to eat me - I'mm'a gonna triple tap that mother.....
