The Characters in Season 1 should have asked and discussed why and how?

Why and how they think the ZA began.I know that why it happened is not really that important in the grand scheme of things but if you existed in the world you would obviously be thinking how the hell did this happen!? We will never know what caused the ZA and in this we are in the same boat as the characters so I think it would have been nice for the characters to have a discussion in a Quite moment about how they thought it happened(Scientists,God,other). Hopefully in season 2 we could have a scientist or a religious guy in our group just to offer their theories if nothing else. I just thought that in season 1 it was odd that the characters never questioned what was happening.

    Maybe it will be like Zombrex from Dead Rising.

  • I know Kirkman never wanted the science behind the transformation and the reasons why it started to be discussed in depth but it definitely would be interesting, and yah it would be cool if some sort of doctor or scientist character was introduced and tried to theorize what happened.

  • Well maybe a cure could be done, but the technology to make it is long gone after the first 400 Days.

  • I like Andrew's reasoning from the comics. He prayed to God to never let him do drugs again and the next day the zombie apocalypse starts, so he can't get drugs anymore. Seems legit.

  • The scientist said that the virus causes the brain to reactivate itself after the person dies. However the virus lives to spread itself to other people, and it can be caught through the air.

    Bonnie seems to have no problem still getting them! :P

    If it hadn't been for the apocalypse, she never would have met Leland and Dee who got her off the stuff.

    So, in the end, the apocalypse is God's way of saying "Drugs aren't cool."

    When Dee stole medicine from the diner I wonder was it her hope that Bonnie may get hooked on some of the medicine(pills or something) because she wanted Bonnie to relapse because she was jealous of Bonnie and Leland.

    I wouldn't be surprised. She was very defensive of Leland, and I will always think that she KNEW it was Bonnie she was trying to kill in the cornfield, and just guilt tripped her after Bonnie got the better of her. That's not how I played Bonnie, though. In my game she never liked Leland as more than a friend, so she should have been going after that treacherous husband of hers.
