Season four of “The Walking Dead” premiere left fans with an important question that must be answered. The young man who was sick and left the reading group for the children, was he dead when he turned into a walker? In interviews conducted on October 13 and October 14, fans of “The Walking Dead” shared their thoughts on the subject.
“He had to be dead,” Michelle Davis, from Oklahoma City, said. “They can't handle people turning into walkers before they die at this point in the show. It is too soon to throw in that monkey wrench.”
“I'm hoping he wasn't dead yet,” Stephen Silverman, from Moore, said. “Everyone seems so happy in the prison. If the living are turning, they have to lock them up at night and have all sorts of guards walking around. That would give them something to fight about. They need a non-walker problem to deal with.”
One viewer pointed out how there was a trail of blood leading to the showers and how he had bled from his eyes. It is possible there is a virus or something more sinister inside the prison.
“I think The Governor has found a way to poison the water and give them a virus of some sort,” Lesley Turner, from Oklahoma City, said, “The kid coughed in the water bucket. That could spread the virus and make others really sick. Maybe, if he was from Woodbury, he had been infected then and was just now getting sick.”
“I think there is a virus going around,” Rachel Evans, from Oklahoma City, said. “With all those people living in such close quarters and the sanitation isn't what we are use to, it is possible something is being passed around. Whatever it is, it needs to be figured out really fast.”
The premiere episode of “The Walking Dead” left a walker inside prison, inside a cell block, full of other survivors. Nothing else was shown. Fans will have to watch next week to see how this latest problem is handled. There is no telling how many people this walker will take out before he is put down. It is also unknown who this walker will kill.
