    Eugene claimed to be talking to DC on a sat phone. But we have no idea if Eugene was telling the truth, or if the people on the other end of the phone were telling the truth. Either way, he shouldn't be claiming his info is classified, given the constant danger he's in. If he really does have a solution, and he gets killed before he tells anyone, he's doomed the entire human race. Not very smart.

    In 2015 we are supposed to have a second Walking Dead show that will deal with things during the outbreak and we should other kinds of answers then.

    I fear they're trying to milk too much out of this cash cow....

    Come on! That never happens.....always

    I'm anxiously waiting for the holiday musical variety show myself. Rick, Michonne and son singing Jingle bells while riding in a arm less jaw less walker pulled sleigh. That's Christmas.

    I'm in. I'd really like to know what their version of the back story is.

    I'd be a little surprised if we get much back-story. Zombie plagues are definitely the kinds of things whose origins are best left to the imagination, because once you start explaining them they really fall apart fast.

    I suspect what we might see is more of the initial reaction to the outbreak. Unfortunately, they've already established that civilization fell awfully fast, so there's probably not much time they could spend on that.

    That's true in many respects, but I do think they can deal with the issue in such a way that it doesn't become another Helix.

    That's my thought as well. So that really only leaves backstory or a whole new survival show.... basically what we have now.


    Either way, I'm in.... at least for ep. 1 :)

    He doesn't know his new traveling companions very well. Maybe he's afraid that if he tells them the solution, that they'll kill him. The solution is priceless and there are a lot of bad people out there.

    Alternatively, maybe the solution is worse than (or as bad as) the disease. I can't see how that could be the case as the disease is pretty damn bad.

    Biting doesn't spread any diseases, it causes an infection that kills people.

    Everyone already has the "disease".

    Well to be fair, that article was written for zombies in general, not this specific universe.

    That's not the case in real life. Rabies is most commonly spread via a bite. The bite itself allows the infected saliva from the host to enter the blood stream of a new victim.

    From the CDC's page on rabies:

    I don't think it's too much of a stretch to think the Z virus could be spread the same way. Just ignore the fact that Z's don't produce saliva anymore. :)

    And all credibility gets flung out the window.

    Achieving escape velocity, and breaking orbit.

    Currently halfway to Pluto.
