re: walking dead opening scene


As far as grabbing the bear, it could be part of some primal instinct for comfort, which was overrided by the more powerful urge to eat once she heard Rick.

In some species the need for comfort is stronger than the need for food. I remember an experiment using baby monkeys where they were offered two foster parent options, both fake. Forgive me if I get some of the details wrong. One provided milk, but was otherwise just a rough surface. The other had no milk but was covered in fur. The baby monkeys chose the comfort of the fur dummy over the milk dummy.


eta: Study was by Harlow. LINK

quote:

In Harlow's classic experiment, two groups of baby rhesus monkeys were removed from their mothers. In the first group, a terrycloth mother provided no food, while a wire mother did, in the form of an attached baby bottle containing milk. In the second group, a terrycloth mother provided food; the wire mother did not. It was found that the young monkeys clung to the terrycloth mother whether or not it provided them with food, and that the young monkeys chose the wire surrogate only when it provided food. Whenever a frightening stimulus was brought into the cage, the monkeys ran to the cloth mother for protection and comfort, no matter which mother provided them with food. This response decreased as the monkeys grew older.

Why does the girl grab the bear


Some people have addressed zombies having some sort of memory of their past life. To keep using the walking dead, why does Morgan's wife, who is a zombie, go to the front door of her house and rattle the door knob? She knows the house is familiar, but doesn't know why. There is no reason she grabbed the bear, other than it looks familiar to her, but she probably forgot she was holding the bear after picking it up.

Because it's a frickin zombie!

That wasn't their house. It's Rick's neighbor, not Morgan's family.


It was simply a way to introduce the show. Rick was hesitant, almost looked like he was seeing his first zombie, and is reluctant to shoot but eventually does.


I really don't think that scene is anything more than that.

It was simply trying to set a tone.

Whoops. I had meant she died in the house, and it was familiar to her in some way

Well he didn't exactly get the jump on her. Guess he was surprised, she was coming at him, BLAM

And I agree with the others. It was too set the tone of the show, to let people know we are messing around with this series.

Rick just loves shooting little girls in the head

Wasn't that his first day after waking up? At that time, maybe he didn't realize the extent of the zombies or that loud noises can attract them.

And if he did realize all that, then he was feeling sorry for the girl and did what he had to do when she ran at him. As for the noise, he was about to leave anyway so it didn't matter.
