    As to what is the cause of the infection, I think the unmapped area in the hospital clearly points toward man's interference into God's realm. We have tread on to holy ground and are paying the consequences. My guess for who's to blame, my working theory (Well, that's until the next chapter comes along and changes everything.) is that the corporation that conducted the experiments and they are no longer in control and the Zombie King, reins supreme. (King Ink the First, anyone?)

    That we will. I can't wait to find out what happens next. So many great possible theories thrown about, someone could take all these and write another zombie related story lol.

    I don't know if this has been discussed since I'm new, but I'm confused on how the infection is spread. We know that getting bitten does it, and in the beginning being splattered or ingesting blood did it too. I was re-listening, however, and when Riley and Angel were in the arena they were in piles of the dead monsters for hours. Riley got juices in her eyes and mouth and I assume Angel did too. Can the infection not be spread by the dead bodies? Do they need to be living/fresh remains in order to spread it?

    This question goes to the heart of one of the unanswered questions of the series: How do they decide between turning someone and using them as food? That pile that Angel and Riley hid in might be just be people that the zombies killed but never infected them. We've seen them dragging live ones around, but we've also seen them jump on Todd and Fernando for immediate eats. If they can control themselves to the point that they don't bite right away, that entire pile could have been full of people who got their necks snapped and tossed onto the pile.

    Likely? Nah, not really. But possible.

    Did the zombies take live people during the beginning, I wonder? or did that come later, once Ink (or whoever is the smartest zombie in the group) organized everyone, newly turned and all, and 'told them' what to do?

    I have often wondered if the tatoos might serve a transmission function. Just as some diseases can be spread through needles, the same might be true for zombies.

    Bill Roberts (A.K.A. "Ink") might have been turned after getting one of his many tatoos before becoming Patient Zero for LA the LA area.

    Also, the tatoo gun at the Mental Hospital might have been used for more than just labelling the Little Ones. Perhaps it is being used to infect others? With new strains?

    I'm curious about transmission theories related to Ground Zero and Inglewood. While it's apparent that the virus (or whatever) is transmitted through blood and bodily fluids, and it's therefore possible/probable that it's being transmitted through the tattoo needle, I'm unsure about what part Ground Zero plays. We heard the theory that Ground Zero is where everything started, presumably where the virus first began spreading, at least in the Los Angeles metro area. If that's the case, and considering that something in the area causes violent illness and vomiting, there must be some sort of other method of transmission, perhaps airborne (although Pegs said something about how it didn't seem like it was in the air, and Pegs and Victor didn't acquire the virus even after they were exposed to the air of the area).

    Generally yes. Kc has said he likes to write about what he knows and where he can visit. There are obviously exceptions like the Colony....I doubt there's a booby trapped stronghold in SoCal full of sociopaths.....

    ...,at least I hope there isn't!
