Now it makes sense!
We never got an origin story for the zombie/walker outbreak of The Walking Dead. Season 1's action just followed Rick Grimes before getting shot, and then when he emerged from the hospital and the world had gone to hell. Now we know the truth — this, too, can be laid at the feet of Walter "Heisenberg" White of Breaking Bad.
At least, that's the story in this inventive Breaking Bad/Walking Dead mash-up courtesy of College Humor.
AMC must love this combination of two of its biggest shows. One (Breaking Bad) is ending for all time tonight (September 29) and the other (Walking Dead) is launching its fourth season on October 13.
Maybe this Breaking Dead show is the Walking Dead “companion piece” AMC is planning for 2015 — a look into how Walt accidentally started the zombie plague. We’d watch it!
