Days gone bye
You know, I really enjoyed the cold open sequence of the very first episode titled “Days Gone Bye.” I always struggle with whether it’s “by” as in days that have past or “bye” as in “goodbye” days that have gone past never to return. That’s a story for another day though.
I think that first season of this show will always be its best season. The zombies had a certain sense of being able to retain some cognitive abilities, as demonstrated by the little girl zombie picking up the doll. That little bit of cognitive ability made them scarier.
They were essentially killing and feeding machines that could remember things like how to use tools and do other muscle memory type things.
