How to end the zombie apocalypse

I was watching Almost Human the TV show set in the future where police officers are paired up with robots and this got me thinking hey, wouldn't that be one way to end the zombie apocalypse, by sending in teams of these robots to wipe out the zombie hordes?

Zombies eat human flesh, not metal.

So there you go, you heard it here first. A solution to the real life Walking Dead.

In a zombie apocalypse, shoot the children first

(WARNING - if you haven't seen the Walking Dead mid-season finale, don't read this)

Is Lizzie the most dangerous person in the Walking Dead?
In a zombie apocalypse, it’s only right that the adults protect the kids, but maybe the adults need protected from the kids.

Well, one kid in particularly – Lizzie Samuels. Because there’s a pretty good chance that she was the one who killed Karen and David, and Carol’s protecting her.

Here’s why.
Lizzie has an unhealthy obsession with walkers - In 30 Days Without An Accident, Lizzie is seen with other kids naming the walkers outside the prison. Carl tells her they shouldn’t name them because they’re not people and they kill people. Lizzie responds by telling him that people kill people and they have names.

In Infected, the hand of someone is seen feeding the walkers rats using a flashlight to point their way. That’s something a kid would do and it might have led to the illness that the people in the prison suffered.

but did Carol indirectly cause Karen and David's deaths?
Lizzie offers to “kill” her father so he won’t come back as a walker. Would a normal little girl be able to do that? In the end she couldn’t and Carol branded her weak.
After that, David and Karen are found dead.

Could Lizzie have reacted to Carol’s “you’re weak” comment by toughening up and killing the pair? Sounds like a possibility.

If Lizzie did kill David and Karen, and Carol found out about it, she could blame herself for what Lizzie did and take the blame. Carol could also have dragged their bodies and burned them to protect Lizzie.

Her little sister Mika, tells Carol that Lizzie isn’t weak, she’s just “messed up.”
Lizzie cries when her favourite walker Nick dies for good
Lizzie runs off crying when she finds out the walker she called Nick has been killed. Again, this suggests an unbalanced mind.
Carol tells her: “Lizzie, those are walkers. Nick was a walker. You don’t feel bad about that walker dying, you feel bad about your dad. You loved him and he’s gone.”

Natural born killers?

She knows how to kill
Lizzie is there when Carol teaches the kids how to use knives in their makeshift classroom.

Just as we were worried we were about to see the demise of another character, Lizzie save Tyrese by drilling a bullet into Alisha’s forehead and another soldier. And that leads to another prospect – did Lizzie team up with her younger sister to kill Karen and David? The dead pair wouldn’t have seen that coming.

Rick also found a very small, low handprint on the door near where Karen and David were found. A child's handprint.

Daryl knows Carol didn’t do it
Daryl when told that Carol killed David and Karen says, “That aint her.” Nobody knows her better in the show than Daryl.

Here’s the dialogue from the scene -

Rick: Hey, hey, she killed two of our own. She couldn’t be here. She’s going to be alright. She has a car…supplies…weapons. She’s a survivor.

Daryl: I don’t believe it.

Rick: She did it. She said it was for us. That was in her head. She wasn’t sorry.

Daryl: So, she deserved it. Well, that ain’t her.

Did a deathbed promise make Carol cover for Lizzie?
Carol’s promise to the girls’ dad
On his deathbed, Lizzie’s father asks Carol to look after his two daughters. When Carol makes a promise, she sticks to it and the two girls were her chance to be a mother again after losing Sophia.

Would that extend to Carol covering for a pint-sized sociopath or even sociopaths? I think so.

Only time will tell. One thing’s for sure, we can’t wait for the series to return on February 9th.

What do you think?

Leave your comments below and remember, stay safe and keep aiming for the head.

What next for Walking Dead Season 4?

Stop killing off good characters like Milton and Tiny from the prison
In the case of Milton we never got to find out how he knew the Governor or who or what he was. We'd have liked to have found out. 

Big Tiny could have offered some much needed comedy effect. But, hey, being a black guy he didn't stand a chance. He was killed by fellow inmate Tomas

Axel could have brought Carol some happiness, but he got shot. 

Stop ruining women characters like Andrea
Would Andrea really have turned into a starstruck teenager with the Governor? We doubt it. Yet it wasn't until it was too late that she saw the light. It didn't fit the character who was tough and independent. 

Sash the scriptwriters are gonna cock up & kill me.
Stop killing off good characters
Like many members of the Walking Dead family, I couldn't wait to see Merle come back. Then what do they do, they kill him off and make his brother do the deed. Yet, there was more to Merle than meets the eye and we were starting to see that. Merle's death was such a waste. 

Let Daryl be Daryl
He probably wasn't meant to be the star of the show, but he is. So they need to let him be Daryl. That means letting him hunt down the man who made sure Merle turned into a zombie. 

That brings me to the final point...

Kill the Governor
A good character at the start, some of us got bored with him, mainly because the story involving him dragged on so long. He should have been killed by Rick when they set up the meeting. He wasn't. Andrea had the chance to kill him. She didn't take it. Milton also had his chance. He didn't take it. The Governor seems to have more lives than a cat.
