WASHINGTON, Oct. 20, 2013 —The fourth season premiere of “The Walking Dead” not only set a new ratings record, it gave fans plenty to talk about during the broadcast. The live chat hosted by Washington Times Communities provided a place for a lot of fans to gather and discuss the first episode of the new season.
The fourth season opened with an expanded population at the prison going about the business of sustaining their community. Rick and Carl were busy learning gardening tips from Hershel while Carol took on the task of schooling the young. But in a post apocalyptic world education is a lot more than reading, writing and arithmetic. Along with story hour Carol included a basic education in the use of knives against zombies.
Meanwhile Daryl has gained rock star status with all the new people in the group because of his formidable zombie slaying skills. Daryl has also taken on a leadership role while Rick deals with the loss of his wife in season three.
Apparently the creative geniuses behind “The Walking Dead” think the constant threat of zombies and outsiders are not enough to keep the prison population busy. Last week’s episode also hinted of an emerging invisible threat when pigs as well as people began showing symptoms of an unknown illness.
Is the source of the possible pandemic the animals or the water supply? Since the first person to show symptoms was a refugee of Woodbury, has the governor attacked the prison without even showing up?
Tonight, we hope, the newest enemy, the “ebolla-type” virus that killed the “Harry Potterish” David, will be revealed even as they now have a zombie, inside the prison, to deal with. Leading us to ask who is going to die tonight?
Join our Live Chat tonight were we will discuss Creepy Carla in the woods, if Michonne will find the Governor (my guess is that will be either the mid-season apex or the season climax - but then I am often wrong), and will Carl be able to retain some semblance of being a kid.
I am thinking not.
The Walking Dead: Live Interactive Chat - tonight 9:00pm Eastern through The Talking Dead post show wrap up.
