    Why is it that none of the recent victims of human on human violence have turned into walkers once they passed? Have the writers just forgotten about that plot development from season 2? I thought they were all infected and would turn into walkers once they died a non-zombie death (i.e., Shane). What the hell??

    Is there anyone who has recently died, not by head trauma, who hasn't been the recipient of post mortem head trauma? Lori was shot by Carl to prevent her from turning. The prisoner was shot in the head.

    Didn't the governor say that they had lost X amount of people in the raid? What about the prisoner from the prison who came with them on the raid? Didn't he get shot in the back or something?

    Why do you assume that they neither turned nor were shot/stabbed in the head to prevent them from turning?

    I think they've shown them doing the postmortem head-shots often enough to assume that they're taking care of business even if we don't see it in a particular case.

    Yes, that's another example of what I'm talking about, which leads to the assumption that while Rick was in his coma, there was some event that spread quickly throughout the world and killed people almost instantly and usually simultaneously with other people in their same vicinity.

    Did the explanation from the guy at the CDC discuss this, or was he just talking about the virus that makes people turn after they die?

    I guarantee the Governor made sure any casualties of the raid were brained.

    The "lounging Walkers" don't bother me much. We've seen them since the pilot. Once the human population got scarce the Walkers have a pretty boring un-life. Can't blame them for sitting around.

    The ones in the cafe might have been regulars who decided to drink cyanide cocktails and check out together. Remember, most of the survivors thought you only turned when you were bit. Suicide is pretty common in Zombie Apocalypse lore. They all fall asleep, and when they "wake" they're all zombies so they just sit and rot.

    The non-walker dead bodies in cars still don't have a good enough explanation, IMO. Kirkman or Mazzara tried to explain it as "head trauma from car accident" but that's a cop out. That was a big traffic jam in the S2 premiere; not all of those corpses could have died from head trauma in a fender bender.

    Instead of coming up with tortured logic, it would be so refreshing if an occasionally a show runner would just say "Yeah, we got that wrong. We thought it would look cool, and we didn't really think it through. Please just let it go."

    Beads came before letters, kiddo.

    Ah, I remember when those %@^$ newfangled beads came along...world's been downhill ever since. Beads, letters, internet, in retrospect it was a slippery slope.

    It's also the type of bracelet a kid might make for their Mom or Dad.

    In a car, couldn't everyone SIMPLY have their seatbelts on, and then "starved"

    So seatbelt laws could save us from the zombie apocalypse!

    But why would someone sit in a car and starve to death rather than get out and look for food?

    i'm guessing people were trapped in their cars surrounded by walkers, and just eventually starved to death

    General spoiler:

    I read somewhere, maybe TV guide, that they are doing a flashback episode this season. Maybe?
