The Walking Dead: Episode 402 – Infected, Preview
AMC has given us some limited details of the next episode, Infected. We’ll run with it.
Since the end of Episode 1, we’ve been talking about what exactly did kill that kid in the season four premier episode. It seems that things are going full tilt into the panic mode over in the prison these days. Just judging from the picture of Daryl covering his nose/mouth (below) it seems that they’re thinking it’s gone viral and kills you, THEN turns you. If this is going to be the case, I don’t see how humanity is even remotely going to have a chance. But from my limited knowledge of viral/flu pandemics don’t things start locally and then through human interaction they can spread from there. If the prison has in fact created a new viral version of whatever it is that is turning people into Walkers when they die, it doesn’t seem like staying in the prison is going to beneficial. Though, judging from the early season 4 preview clips, it doesn’t seem like this season will hold much longer within the confines of the prison. I bet they go with Michonne in her hunt for The Governor.
Anyways as promised, the slim information that AMC provided.
EPISODE 402: Infected
