    As for why they stopped... I still go toward The Alpha Wolf idea. There is many times where the Zeds are compaired to animals. Until we know that there is a Magic Insta-Language that is in the DNA somehow... I like to think that his personality and being a Smart One made him a Alpha Wolf. The looked at him and new he was in charge. Much how the Zombies move as a group around Randy.
    I was going to agree with you, but have we ever seen Randy in a group of zombie before? Everything we noticed him he is working alone never really surround by a group.

    When he tried to grab Tanya near the end of Season 2 he was with a group.

    I so want to comment at this point, but I think I'll just let this play out and let you all figure it out as we go. All I'll say is I don't like "magic" stuff or telepathy, or hive-mind stuff.

    You can comment KC. It can be our secret. No one will know... unless they read the post... but I am sure they will just gloss over that one.

    Love it! "Bert the Toolman Taylor" & the writers' genius of addressing the 'cursed Mata-Gun' (either foreseeing that would happen or really following our comments, either end is awesome!).

    On another note, will we see the unveiling of zombie catacombs? A la the cracks in ground zero?

    After listening to the episode for the 4th time, and browsing through the comments on the forum, I push back from the computer.

    "Now what do I do for another week?"

    I look to my left, and there is two firearms in need of repair.

    I look to my right, and there is my girlfriend. I don't know how long she has been there.

    "Oh, right. Real life does exist."

    Damn you KC.
    There's nothing quite like a bullet to the brain to say "Hey seriously, cut that out!"

    "Take yer hat off boy, that's a dollar bill!"

    Zed Insta-Know Language?

To see a few scratchs and swirls and go "Ah. They are saying to only eat the people with brown hair behind the taco bell" is a bit to far without being taught.

So, Datu suddenly understanding an aggregate of ancient symbols that happen to spell out an address, seems a bit supernaturalish.

    Not, it wouldn't make a very good story for there to be a hidden zombie language that Ink uses to communicate and protect himself, especially if our heroes can use it to their advantage.

And there did seem to be a strong correlation between his reading of the symbols and the head pain. OR this is just his impending death so that we don't find out what the address is. OR Ink can control them and this is one way!?

    Well, this really starts to get into my territory now, given that my profession is a reading specialist. One thing I know about language, written language in particular, is that it is not 'natural' in the sense that it must be learned. No child is born knowing how to read. Nor is there any such thing as an instantaneous transmission of the knowledge one needs to effectively decode phonetic symbols into meaning.

    So given that Kc is not into 'magic', 'telepathy', or 'hive-mind' stuff... I would have to say, in my professional opinion, that I have no fucking idea how Datu could possibly 'read' the Zombiglyphs simply from being infected with a Zed virus or whatever.

    Damn you, Kc! You better have a real solid explanation for this or out come the torches and pitchforks!!!
