Has John McCaine now qualified as a “Walker”?

Sigh........ Thank you. Can’t wait. Approx. 12 hours to go here can’t wait to see Rick confront the Governor. Wow even Hershel went with Rick and Darryl from what I saw in the promo episode.

"With just four more episodes left in The Walking Dead: Season 3, IGN has some exclusive photos for you from Sunday's new episode, "Arrow on the Doorstep." It seems nothing can stop the confrontation between those led by Rick Grimes and those led by the Governor, and "Arrow on the Doorstep" finds Rick, Daryl and Hershel venturing out of the prison on a high stakes mission that could change the course of this conflict. We'll have to wait until Sunday night at 9pm on AMC to find out how that mission goes, but in the meantime, check out these new images of Rick Grimes and Daryl Dixon from the episode - who you can see don't appear to be in a familiar area..."

I have a question. Having seen only two episodes, I don’t know much about the series. How does Daryl use the crossbow? Its a good SHTF weapon, but it doesn’t seem like a good zombie weapon, because it would have to go through the skull.

I probably would say YES since we all know moonbats have no brains. They just roam around moaning “Give Me”. Since McCain is a Rhino well yes indeed. Along with ODumbo, Piglosi, and other.

P.S. No offense to real zombies =) I bet not even a real zombie would want to be linked with those greedy scumbags.

In the show it seems to go through skulls pretty easily. Probably not that true to real life, but it looks cool! The main thing is that it’s a quiet weapon, and these zombies (Walkers) are attracted to sounds/noise.

In the zombie apocalypse, isn’t everything deteriorating, so it would be easier for an arrow to go through a skull, correct?

It seems like a good weapon to have, because guns have limited ammo, and these bolts can be reused. but when I think about shooting a zombie in the head, then going back and retrieving the bolt, without contracting zombie-ness, which is usually portrayed as communicable through fluids, I think I would just leave the bolt where it is and make more.

Actually, it is a good weapon for that. The zombie is caused by a parasite/virus that has infected the brain of the dead. The only way to re-kill them is with a severe head wound -- bullet, arrow, knife/ax/sword, etc.

An arrow from a crossbow can penetrate deep.

In an earlier episode it was revealed they all already have the zombie virus, it just kicks in when they die. So, the zombie “ooze” on the arrow wouldn't give you the virus.

The script writers need to write in some suppressors for their firearms.

Maybe next season.

Two shows I can’t miss. Walking Dead and Duck Dynasty. I think Phil and Si could take out some zombies.

What’s cool about the Walking Dead is they’re always killing zombies that look a lot like.....I won’t say it. It might not be good to use the word “killing” with .....

I don’t know if that was ever determined. But the guy at the CDC said they all had it (before the baby was born) so it must be in the air or something.

So they cut off Herschel's leg for no reason? I think there's more to the virus that I don't know or understand yet ... they all carry it, but in a dormant state so no one turns until they die ... UNLESS they are bitten by walkers who have the ACTIVE virus which will kill you and turn you immediately?

IMHO, active zombie virus would be on Daryl's arrows and would infect you if it contacted an open wound.

300 fps arrow would go into the skull no problem.

lethal bites kill you, then you come back.

nonlethal bites kill you eventually if you can’t chop off the bitten appendage, and you come back.

it’s something you have to kind of overlook a little becuase of the whole their fluids don’t turn you but a bite does, kind of thin logic.

If I was in a zombie apocalypse, this would be my gear:

It would be totally cool to have the survivors meet up with a bunch of knights who were having a Renaissance festival right during the outbreak.

He shoots the zombies in the skull. Retrieves arrows to reuse.
His advantages over a gun are silence and not having to worry about ammo.

There could be complications like the Komodo Dragon’s bite. There’s toxin in its venom, but the germs in its saliva are what kill you eventually.
The zombie’s mouth could easily harbor bacteria that result in the fever that the infected suffer, such as Morgan saying his wife had a 104-105 fever before dying. The zombies carry the virus, but also another infection that kills you so the zombie virus can take over.
