Aside from the weird sickness they had going through the prison, does anyone in this show ever die from anything other than injuries (like walker bites or just being straight up murdered by someone)? You'd think in an apocalyptic scenario there would be more cases of, like, dysentery and botulism and whatnot.

Nicholas committed suicide (and so did some unnamed resident in Alexandria). Not sure if that counts from what you're asking.

Daryl's always eating gross things, and everybody ate that pack of stray dogs, so I'm surprised everyone isn't suffering from some pretty severe intestinal parasites. But then again, it wouldn't be 'exciting' tv if Daryl died from making GBS threads himself inside out.

E:But heck, even Z-Nation had a character dying from sepsis because she cut her leg on barbed wire. The closest WD came was T-Dog getting a little wonky for all of two episodes from gashing his arm open on a rusty car.

They did have to clear the well in S2 to prevent water borne illness. I don't think anyone got sick from it, but they were cognizant of the potential at least.

I thought about that right after I posted. So I guess yeah, the prison arc had some of those things going on but I can't really think of anything else.

I count suicides as injuries (self inflicted but still).

But yeah I'm talking about diseases and parasites and stuff. I think it would be cool if they incorporated stuff like that into the plot more often.

I'm surprised there aren't more unfortunate/whoops deaths.

There was that old man in Woodbury that died from cancer in S3, when Milton was doing that experiment to see if zombies have any memories of their living life.

E: I asked about it in a previous post if the guy was still alive, but Denise was taking care of someone with an infected leg injury (from getting shot). He's probably a goner too.

The kid dying in the shower was part of the prison arc I already mentioned. Aside from that everything everyone has brought up are still injury-related deaths.

I'm talking about disease, viruses, parasites, dehydration, cancer etc (basically health-related issues and things that would be a lot more common in an apocalyptic situation).


Wait how did Tara's dad die? I remember he needed oxygen tanks and stuff.

Yeah this is part of what i wish the show would do. Kirkman talks about how he wants to see what the survivors of a zombie apocalypse do after the initial outbreak but then he/now the show writers seem to ignore the realities of what living in that world would actually entail. People can just jump into any car and drive it, heal from any wound, apparently find drinking water everywhere etc.

As far as everyone being a badass now I like that but it would be better if they gave people more to do than just kill more comically evil villains. That and everyone just surrendering and dropping their weapons at the drop of a hat.

Rick was going to lead the group on a revenge rampage but they ran out of ibuprofen a month ago and now his sciatica is flaring up so instead we are going to watch an hour of him wincing while collecting water from the stream two miles away to wash Judith in.

No? I like how when given an option for a different storyline you immediately jump to the dumbest one possible and consider no other alternatives. That's very constructive thinking.

As a Crohny, this (s)hits close to home. I would be a bad apocalyptico, despite my pretty strong outdoor and carpentry skills. Because I have to poop all the time you see.

On a non-half-hearted troll note, the "bad guy only even MORE evilerer" plot line is repetitive and lazy. TWD hit a wall hard about three or four season ago and has no idea what to do with itself. And I'm still here.

Has anyone cracked out the old "maybe the audience is the walking dead" saw in this thread yet? Because we are.

I saw an anime series about a bunch of girls crewing a battleship. One episode was about them running out of toilet paper because they had only brought on board enough toilet paper for toilet purposes and the girls were using it for other stuff.

So it's been done.

This show has characters as low on ammo/supplies/food as necessary, and the dilemma tends to be wrapped up by the end of the episode.

In a deleted scene from the S2 opener when they went back to the nursing home, there was roughly a dozen people in the group, and all they had food-wise was like, a bag of chips, a bottle of wine, and a can of garbanzo beans. They got over it.

At the start of season 3, they were so low on supplies, Carl nearly ate a can of wet dog food before Rick smacked it out of his hands. By the end of the episode, they'd found the fully stocked pantry in the prison cafeteria.

Governor was coming for them and they're seriously outgunned and Rick is down to his last bullet. Crazy-town Morgan lets them take like, a dozen assault rifles and all the ammo they'd ever need.

People are getting sick left and right from the flu. Don't worry, they get back with meds in the nick of time before anyone important from the main cast succumbs to the sickness.

Everyone's starving/dehydrated to the point they're eating worms and wild dogs. Oh, here comes a rain storm and Aaron with supplies.

I feel like if they could play it right (haha, like that'd ever happen) a storyline about their futile attempts to keep someone alive/get someone help could be a good, melancholy little story arc. Like, for example, the emotions the group would go through if, say, they were out of formula for Judith, searching high and low for anything to keep her alive, and coming up empty handed and powerless to help her since a baby can't eat solid food. Or, say, someone comes down with something that would be easily treatable if society hadn't crumbled; like, appendicitis or pneumonia, or heck, even food poisoning from eating possibly expired canned goods. Some antibiotics and IV rehydration would have cleared that right up in the old world, but that's not a possibility now. Hell, even an allergic reaction could be lethal in the zombie apocalypse.

Granted, in a show about zombies, most people don't expect realism, but there's a lot that could be done beyond 'A bad man killed my friend, now I am sad'.

E: I think the only 'medical problem that is barely kept stable' they've ever shown was that girl with Dwight that had Diabetes. And she was dead by the end of the episode, so NBD.

What I miss from the recent TWD is coming across places that were once hold out places for others that failed.
Like the golf club, or the houses where the zombies scratched their way through the garage walls to get in.
Or the sleeping bag zombies in the office Daryl/Carol finds.

Needs more of those imo.

Well now that they have a home base in Alexandria, they aren't exploring as much. There are of course explorer teams sent out from Alexandria, but they aren't followed because we're focused more on domestic drama. Of course that could all change this season, who knows?

I'm sticking with the theory of two bashees. Glen and Abe I reckon, for no other reason than the first spergy youtube video I watched analysing headlights, shadows, angles and stones on the ground said so. AMC aren't the only ones milking this annoying cliffhanger, some of those vids have large views.

The fact that I even clicked on a few of them and watched gives me the same feeling I get when I lose a game.
