Did You Know?


The Locus coeruleus is a part of the brainstem and is responsible for the physiological responses in the body related to stress and panic. The Locus coeruleus is one of the main areas where the neurotransmitter norepinephrine is produced, norepinephrine is one of the two main types of adrenaline found in the body and mainly plays a role in the "fight or flight" response. In the brain norepinephrine increases arousal and alertness, promotes vigilance, enhances formation and retrieval of memory, and focuses attention; it also increases restlessness and anxiety. In the rest of the body, norepinephrine increases heart rate and blood pressure. See more »


It is known from other episodes that ingestion of infected tissue from a walker can cause a person to become infected themselves and turn. It was learned in The Walking Dead: TS-19 that the brain-stem is the only part of the brain that remains active, and the Locus coeruleus is part of the brain-stem, so the virus would be especially concentrated there. So ingestion of the Locus coeruleus from a walker would almost certainly cause a person to turn. However, it was revealed in both the original show and in this one that everyone is already infected: zombie "virus" doesn't kill you, it just turns you into a walker. You turn into a waler even if you just die because of starvation. Nick even once ate dog meat partially eaten by zombies and is still alive. See more »

Don't potatoes have expiry date?! Why no food in the markets of The Walking Dead's world ever expires?
