This poster for the next episode of The Walking Dead appeared on the official Facebook page yesterday with the caption "R.I.P Violet." This poster looks to confirm that there is an infection passed on from the animals to the survivors! I have so many questions about this revelation. How are the animals getting infected without being bitten? Is the infection perhaps in the water? Maybe it's the vegetables Rick is growing? That last one was a complete guess, but there had to be a reason they mentioned the gardening twice that episode.
Either way, the new poster gives me hope that this will be a season different from the previous ones!
