If there is one thing that “The Walking Dead” came under fire for more than any other during its second season on the air, it was for its only sporadic use of zombies and/or violence throughout some of the early episodes. The show was accused of having a slow pace as it found its footing, but then it really started to pick up steam throughout the alter episodes that aired earlier this year prior to the death of Shane.
Thankfully, it appears as though the series is looking to rectify that as soon as possibly can. According to a new report from Zap2It, the October 14 premiere of the show (now less than two weeks away!) is going to contain a pretty high body count when it comes to the walkers. As a matter of fact, we may see around two dozen of them fall courtesy of Rick as the survivors start to integrate themselves more and more with the prison that is going to serve as the show’s setting for at least the next several episodes.
So how bad are the survivors going to have it there? Let’s just say that this venue may not be the sort of paradise or oasis that many of the characters were hoping for. After all, they are going to have fewer places to run whenever the walkers do decide to attack; in addition to that, there is also the issue of new characters such as The Governor and Michonne, and they will not know where their allegiances lie until at least a few major tests in.
Do you think more violence is the key for this show getting even better? If you want to read the full official description for the season premiere, you can do so by checking out the story that is posted over at the link here.
