    Could Judith be immune to the virus?

    Ok here me out here because it does sound quite stupid at first but think about it.
    if everybody 'carries the virus' obviously they are all infected but they were alive when the virus struck but Judith wasn't yet conceived when the virus struck, now if my science is correct when the baby is inside the womb it protects the baby from pre natal diseases and infections.
    so is it possible that Judith could of developed some type of immunity while lori was pregnant with her, as she had the virus inside her.


    To me it could be possible that she developed some kind of immunity while inside the womb.

    um, no. Inside the womb, what protects the kid is the placental barrier that filters out most stuff, but not all. It filters out viruses and bacteria and most pathogens, but some drugs go right through the placental barrier. But when they cut the baby out of mom, they exposed the baby to Lori's disease. She was probably unexposed to the disease before her birth, so she wouldn't have the opportunity to develop immunity. Plus, what protects kids from getting sick is the mother gives the kid her immunities passively in the womb and through breastmilk after the baby is born. But mom had no immunities to this, clearly. (I'm an OB nurse)

    Now that I've burst your bubble I'll tell you that statistically a tiny portion of the pop. are immune to just about everything. Nature's fluke's, name a disease and there will be someone that contracts it but doesn't get sick or die from it.

    I doubt it. They wouldn't deviate THAT much from the comics. There are many babies later in the comics, and I'm sure someone would have realized if they were immune by now.

    No. Immunity.

    It would destroy the entire lore of the ZA. The next person who mentions immunity as a possibility will have their avatar changed to a ballerina and all their posts will show up in pink lettering and wingdings format.

    Thou hath been warned.

    Except for Daryl. He's the only one immune to bites and the walker virus.

    I really hope they won't go the immunity route. That's not what The Walking Dead is about. It's about adapting to a new world, so if they decide to do the whole antidote thing it would ruin the show completely to me.

    I doubt Judith is immune, but if she is there's really nowhere they can take that storyline without mess up the show. And even if she is immune, there's not really any way for them to find it out unless she's bit and then it's bye bye Judith anyway. Interesting thought, but I'm willing to bet Judith is just a normal baby.

    Would be an interesting spin, but I don't think they'd do it.

    And one which comes up periodically, no worries. Since Kirkman has said that he simply preferred not to get into the science (and have to find some causal agent that fit into known science to explain it) of the cause, it seems the immunity route will also be something he avoids.

    Bestrafen, thanks for a terrific laugh this morning !
