I haven't read the graphic novels, and I know the show is different, but for some reason I assumed Tyrese was supposed to be a bad***. It is bothering me that his character is such a wimp.

I didn't like the roof walkers, who had been milling about for who knows how long, falling through right when our heroes were in the store. It became clear that the writers just wanted the "zombie storm" to be their cool moment in the show and this is the best way they could set it up.

The rules established from early on are that everyone is infected, but only a bite will give you the lethal fever. Everyone else turns no matter their cause of death, but the bite-fever is the most common cause. They seem to be implying that there is a new way to catch the lethal fever - and if so, it presents an interesting choice by the writers and obviously a great challenge to the survivors. What do you do if anyone gets even the least bit sick?

With the population decimated, the spread of "every day" human disease should be mitigated - what if the virus has destroyed our immune systems, making even the common cold a death sentence?

Was the kid who died in the shower cooking the deer/handling the raw meat?

It wouldn't have to be THE lethal fever. ANY lethal fever will do. This could just be something else that's killing people, and then because they're dead they turn.

The vibe I got was that this is a whole new virus, or at least a different strain. Same basic result in the end, but this one seems to be actually killing people/animals.

Oh absolutely - hence the rest of my post. THE infection could make humans susceptible to all sorts of other infections, ANY of which could be lethal.

Didn't the crazy women in the woods say something about wanting to kill Rick at the camp so her husband's head could have fresh meat, and that he gets lethargic if he hasn't eaten in a while? That seems to hint at a shelf-life (viability) time-frame for the zombies.
