Robert Kirkman Reveals What Caused Walkers: What This Could Mean Going Forward

Robert Kirkman made some waves late this past week via Twitter. He replied to someone’s question asking how the walker problem started in The Walking Dead Universe. He kept steady with some of the things he danced around in the past, but came out and straight said it was a “Space Spore.”

So now that we know how this whole thing has started does that change anything for us? Not really, because even though it gives us an idea of a starting point we still don’t know how it all came together. The characters don’t know how it happened, and at this point, if they were to find out I’m not sure how that is going to help them in any way. It’s their life now and for some of the younger ones the only life they know.

However, and I admit I’m throwing out a long shot here, but does this new insight tie into the current timeline still? At the beginning of Season 10 we saw a satellite from USSR enter into the Walking Dead world. Eugene as we know used that and advanced technology to upgrade his radio, which has been used to reach new people.

BUT, if a space spore caused the entire walker beginning, is it possible that a space spore entered in with or on the satellite and causes the walkers to evolve into something else? I don’t see it happening, though I wish it did, just imagine how a simple thing like that could reset the walkers, maybe making them more dangerous, which would instantly ramp up the danger and make the show that much more interesting going into the Whisperer war. Just imagine the Alpha had an army of advanced walkers? Now that is something to be peepee pants city about.

  1. I am eagerly anticipating the return of WD, and I can imagine Kirkman wanted us to do exactly what we’re going to be doing when he tweeted that out. Because now we’re going to construct all sorts of scenarios,and the idea of advanced walkers? Is definitely peepy pants city . .LOL
