Question about Lee

Spoilers...

So if everyone's infected, and he's bit, why does that automatically make him going to turn into a zombie? If you kiss somebody with the flu, and already have the flu, you don't get DOUBLE FLU. So does the bite just speed up the process? Or does it have nothing to do with him being infected at all? I remember watching the show, and somebody cutting their leg off because they got bit, and it made no sense to me what-so-ever just for the fact that EVERYONE is infected, no matter what, you just have to die to turn.

Thoughts?

  • I'd think of the zombie bite as a completely different infection. All it does is kill very quickly.
  • The bite kills you slowly but almost surely. Then the infection kicks in and you turn.

    But I read somewhere else that it's just the saliva and the zombie bite that creates a 100% fatal infection. But they wouldn't be different infections...

    Dying is what turns you into a zombie. It doesn't matter what you die from... as long as your brain is physically intact when you die, you will come back. So, if something kills you, you will come back.

    A zombie bite kills you. You get sick from the infection, it wears your body down and you die. If something kills you, you will come back. A zombie bite kills you, therefore you come back.


    One isn't a direct cause of the other ("A zombie bite turns you into a zombie,") but the first half -- the bite -- becomes the cause of the second half -- death, at which point you turn.
