Will the Walker virus evolve?

    As it stands, everyone in the Walking Dead universe is infected by the virus and death will bring reanimation as a Walker - there are already a few different types of walkers in the show - Walkers, Roamers, Lurkers, to name but three - but is there the potential for the virus to evolve and bring us a more deadly type of Walker? (A bit like the cold virus is always evolving, so that every time you catch a cold you're catching a different type.)

    Would you like to see the virus evolve or do you think it would ruin the show?

    Personally if they did that, it would turn into something like Resident evil in my opinion. I certainly wouldn't like it and love the walkers as they are now, always been a fan of the old fashion slow moving or somewhat fast staggering zombie in movies. I just like the fact that they didn't go with the more recent zombie outtakes like really fast and super strength ones like in I Am Legend. Cause if they do that, then they don't really seem like zombies but more of a mutation/monster sort of thing.

    I found this particular part interesting, because (if you think about it) they don't refer to them as zombies at all in The Walking Dead.. but they have been referred to (once or twice) as a monster. I don't think I've actually heard the word zombie at all in the entire show.

    I do not want to see the virus evolve. Everyone is already apparently infected. If they battle for however long it takes, get a cure... and it evolves... pffft. Done. The truth should be known if they can ever "test" Lil' Asskicker. If she is infected, may as well give up. Game over. If she isn't, then there is hope.

    The doctor has to get Judith and test her. Only thing I can see happening.

    I would rather not see it evolve. I'm fine with it being the way it is and do not want to see it turn into a Resident Evil.

    100% agree. And that is the exact thing I compare it to.

    I love this show the way it is. No reason to evolve it. I'd like to see another CDC episode though; that was RIVETING!

    According to what I know.
    The CDC is no more. The doctors and everything are dead

    Agreed that if Lil Ass-Kicker is infected too which I can see happening since babies can get the same disease and stuff their mother's have ect ect they would be screwed. The human population, if they ever come back from this apocalypse, would always have to monitor everyone and destroy the bodies of the deceased whenever it happened. Which would be very hard to do with a large population but I doubt the human population would grow that much anyways.

    I'd hate it if the virus evolved. It would cause more trouble to the group especially the baby, how would she survive if that happened? I wouldn't want another walker to come especially seeing the state the group is in at the moment. And with T-dog and Lori dying, it would be too bad to lose more lives.
