The Walking Dead's Top 8 Scariest Zombies
As a show about a zombie apocalypse, "The Walking Dead" obviously has its fair share of zombies, or as they call them on the show, walkers. Despite the hundreds you have undoubtedly seen between the two seasons, there are some that have stuck out more than others.
So, instead of focusing on how many guys Lori has slept with or how many times Carl wasn't in the house when he was supposed to be, we pay tribute to the best of the best of the zombie world that aim to kill them.
WARNING: If you haven't watched an episode or aren't caught up, there are massive spoilers in this article.
1. The Swamp Walker
Poor Dale. Perhaps if Rick and Lori had performed better parental skills, Dale might still be alive. Instead, Carl doesn't receive the attention a boy in a childless world needs and is never in the house when he is supposed to be. As a result, he steals Daryl's gun and takes a walk in the woods only to come upon a walker stuck in the swamp. After taunting him with thrown rocks and the potential of young boy breakfast, the walker breaks free but misses out on a meal of Carl. Presumably having followed the scent of little boy, the swamp walker makes his way to the farm, only to tear poor Dale to shreds.
2. Little Girl Walker
The first zombie to grace the screen in the series is Summer, whose name we now know thanks to the social game. A flesh-eating child, probably being the last thing you would want to see while on the search for your own child and wife, Summer represents the death of innocence. All cute in her little robe, bunny slippers and the chunk of skin missing from her face, Rick has to put her down when she charges him.
3. Bicycle Zombie
Now known as Hannah, this is the first "living" zombie Rick sees after leaving the hospital. Just a torso and rotten flesh, Hannah poses no real threat to him, but she is the first proof Rick has that the dead live. Unable to walk due to the lack of legs, Hannah can only drag herself, so she doesn't get very far when Rick, who sympathizes with her, comes back to put her out of her misery.
4. Well Walker
Probably the most disgusting zombie on the show, the walker in the well is all fat and bloated from being in the water for God knows how long. The team decides not to shoot it because that would contaminate the water in the well. Let's face it: The guy probably already contaminated it, but they send Glenn down into the well to basically lasso the thing so they can bring it up. Despite a few glitches in their system, Glenn manages to pull it off, and off they go to remove the fatty from the well. What they didn't anticipate was how fragile the walker's skin would be from its days in the water, and it basically explodes in half, ruining any chance of water from the well. Next time they will learn to just shoot it and move on.
