Stephen King Raises Questions on ‘The Walking Dead’

Stephen King has expressed his opinion of The Walking Dead season 8 on Twitter, and the author has asked some interesting questions.

Season 8 spoilers: Episode 10 gave us an absolutely awesome scene of Jadis after seeing her group of survivors brutally murdered by Simon. Jadis, who was alone and had no gun, used a meat grinder to kill the Walkers. Despite this scene being completely badass, the best-selling horror writer Stephen King took to Twitter and asked the question – how did Jadis manage to get the power that’s needed to run the grinder?

“The latest episode of The Walking Dead featured a very cool zombie meatgrinder,” Stephen King Tweeted, “Impossible to tell where Jadis got the 440 volts necessary to run it, but that’s just a quibble; she turned them into spaghetti sauce. Yum!”

This wasn’t the only problem Stephen King observed about the season so far, he also noticed a continuity error in a scene showing Carl’s grave. “You’re right, of course. But then…there was the opening, over Carl’s grave,” King said. “The lonesome wind was a nice touch, but not one leaf on one tree was moving. Take THAT, Twitterverse!”

Stephen King finally went out to ask the question that all Walking Dead fans ask, and that’s, “After eight years, how come the zombies don’t, like, biodegrade?” There are a lot of theories surrounding this topic, of course. It’s important to notice that over the eight seasons of the show, the logo on the intro has begun to dramatically degrade.

In other Walking Dead news, it seems AMC want to expand the franchise longer with ‘multiple’ new spin-offs in the works. Why would they not create more after the success of Fear the Walking Dead?
