Okay, so I am just watching AMC’s The Walking Dead Episode 1 again and, now that I know Patrick (Vincent Martella) is a dead man walking, I noticed something disturbing:
The fuck is up with that Daryl Dixon?
Even in a non-zombie apocalypse, it’s the height of bad manners! But now, with all the infection and the killing of critters – both undead and living -mixed with an understandable lack of hygiene, I am really starting to get worried. Surely this is going to end badly?
Although, I have a few ideas on what may happen:
- Daryl (Norman Reedus) is the carrier and infected Patrick. It will be interesting to see how much contact he has had with violet and the others pigs up to this point, if this scenario is the case.
- Patrick was the host and now Daryl is infected. Since we have seen him merely wipe of an arrow rather than wash it properly after killing zombies and squirrels alike, it is more than possible that germs have transferred as a result of this interaction with Patrick.
- The pig is the host and only contact with swine will cause people to become infected with this mysterious and deadly illness. If this is the case then both Carl (Chandler Riggs) and Rick (Andrew Lincoln) are at risk of dying this season!
- What we have is an outbreak of swine flu. The pig died from it, but didn’t reanimate because animals are not affected by the zombie-virus, but, since humans are, they die and reanimate.
So, what are your thoughts on this? Let me know in the comments below. Also, make sure you check out my conspiracy theories page for all the up to date theories on what will go down in The Walking Dead Season 4.
