But - the guy whose name I don't remember, that they left by the side of the road to kill himself pre farm days, did get bitten and was slowly turning. At least that is what they were pushing, since he was getting sicker and delirious after the bite.

So bite and/or scratches while still alive = turn into zombie. Bite and die = zombie. Just die.... = zombie.

So, it would suck for them in the boarded up house if Hershel dies of old age in his sleep. (That would be awesome though, I'll apply for a Walking Dead writer position later this afternoon)
when the group was at the CDC the Last guy that was working on a cure said that the turn rate was different for each person, and that they were not sure why that was.

Certainly a redeeming episode, but I'm still on the fence. I'll probably get my hands on the comics because it really seems like those who've read them enjoy the show more.

Boy, if they're willing to kill off Shane in the second from last episode - I can't wait to see what they do for the season finale!

it wouldn't be nearly as tragic if he died of auto-erotic asphyxiation. because then at least it would still be funny...

Oh also, did anyone else notice T-dog's 1 liner? "Oh Hail Naw"
I think their attempt at being culturally sensitive is becoming more racist than anything

Edit: I'd also like to ask to Revvy or any other close followers, have any of you all considered that Merrill (Daryl's brother) could possibly have survived and is the leader of the second group where the kid came from? He did mention that "they are a tough group of guys", and cutting his own hand off fits that description IMO.

Last night show really pissed me off. The ending had so many loopholes it was almost as if the writers were like "screw it lets just kill Shane...somehow". 1) Shane obviously thought this whole thing through (as spur of the moment as it was) why would he wait till he was 500 feet from the house to try and kill Rick and blame it on the prisoner who's body was at least a mile away. 2) Why did the zombies only come after the second gun shot 3) how the hell did they get their so quickly 4) how did Shane turn to a zombie so quickly 5) The whole thing with the little kid pointing the gun at Rick/Shane Zombie was poorly executed and cliche. 6) The only good thing about this episode was was the beer I was drinking and maybe T-Dawg getting some screen time...as stereotypical as it might of been. 7) My hatred for Lori and Andrea has increased.

You should probably stop watching television...

I was under the assumption that Merrill hacked his way to a escape. Forgot all about him. If that nutjob is still around season three might be way better. With any luck I can watch him die. Twice.
