And the changes to the walkers...
In an interview with Zap2It, The Walking Dead executive producer Gale Anne Hurd spoke about the changes that have happened to the survivors since the last season. Here are highlights:
On how the community has grown: "Because months had elapsed between the last episode of the season and where we pick things up this season, it was important to see the changes in the characters. Since that time had elapsed, how were they dealing with this larger community that they're now a part of? We see that Daryl's kind of the rock star that he should be."
On the emotional complexities of the world: "That's a danger this world poses, is how are you going to face it, what are the moral decisions you're going to make, and how closed off are you going to become to other people. In some cases, people just give up entirely. But when people then chose to survive, they become much stronger survivors."
On the changes to the walkers: "The older walkers, they get more and more haggard and decayed. They decompose. But there's still new walkers, and you'll see fresher ones. The ones that are more sort of patient zero won't look so hot."
