    Why did they not kill the food bank walkers before going in the water?

    So iīm watching the marathon and remember wondering when first watching the episode why they did not kill the water walkers in the food bank before going in? I donīt recall having seen this discussed before, if so, sorry for reposting.

    Everyone must have realized that this situation would be potentially dangerous, and they did have enough weapons?
    Not wanting to spoil any food hidden there with walker blood might be a reason, but then again - would not everything usable at this point be in cans, bottles or glasses anyway?

    I guess Iīm just still pissed about Bobīs death...which was ultimatively caused not by Tyreese not killing Martin or the group not finishing off the Termites but this very water walker situation.

    What does everyone think?

    More like why did Bob move towards the bubbling water :P But I'm not sure why..maybe they couldn't get them all or see them? So they had to go in to kill them

    The answer is that the special effects people wanted to showcase watery walkers so TPTB turned everyone stupid.

    It was done for storyline and for special effects to get Bob bitten. What a shame it was done in this clumsy way with a logic gap that made the survivors look less resourceful than they have been in the past and led to this very type or question from viewers. How I wish a more deft handling of this had been done franky.

    Bob wasn't actually looking at the bubbles though, he was looking at something else he was going to grab. Still, stupid though.

    Ok, so apparently just poor writing. Damn, I was really hoping there was a good reason that I just did not catch/think of. Well.
    Thanks for correcting the title typos though, apparently couldīt do it myself after posting...

    A better way would be they are shooting the walkers from topside. Bob slips on a 🍌 peel, or congealed walker guts, and falls in. 😁

    The Walking Dead - try not to think too hard about the plot.

    Official slogan.

    Why waste bullets when they are all (minus FG) adept at taking out walkers at close range? Gunfire attracts walkers and possibly other people.

    Plus, the action would get boring if they opted to shoot everything from a distance. I love when they get up close for a kill.

    The answer is because... well, plot. And because they needed to kill off Gareth & co quicker so we could get the shitty Grady/Beth arc.
