Army of Walkers - Zombie Hord at the farm

Maybe there were little walkers in the area during barnmaggedon, and the sounds from those gunshots attracted the new walkers to the area. But as the sound from the barn had faded, the walkers couldn't pinpoint the location the sounds were coming from. That's just my theory.

Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray thee Lord these bites aren't deep.
Should I die before I wake, I pray thee Lord, my skull they break.

I agree, I was going to post the same thing.

Also Herchel mentioned the swamp (which was catching the walkers as shown in the mid season finale) was begining to dry up, thus there are less barriers for the walkers as well.

Wow. talk about sherlock holmes! Well, when the barn walkers were shot, the walkers were not in the vicinity.
In fact, a lot of the walkers were caught in the mud of the swamp! Now that winter is coming, the swamp has dried up and the walkers were able to enter the grove near the house. They were close buy when they heard the gun shot.
This too is a plot hole because you can't really identify the origin a gunshot after just one shot. the way it echos, all you know is the general vicinity/direction. I'm surprised the zeds made a b-line for rick and carl.

1. Shane and Friends' Barn Massacre = Herd is far away, hears shots, goes into woods near the farm.
2. For the next few days, there is silence on the farm = Herd loses their direction towards the farm, gets lost in woods.
3. Dale's Untimely Demise = Daryl shoots Dale, herd begins to pick up the trail again, which explains why they were so close to the farm in Better Angels.
4. The Icing on the Cake = Shane misfires after he is stabbed, followed by Carl finishing zombie Shane off. The walkers, having lost their direction again after the silence, are now close enough to the farm and go straight to the source. All hell breaks loose.

LMAO @ Barnmaggedon!

I never thought of that. With that theory, it makes so much sense to me. Thanks for pointing it out to us.

Hordes, if you go by other sources or the comic itself, are simply moving masses who just happen to bump into something interesting. The movement of it is constant as one walker follows the one to his front. Thus it is hardly the case that this horde would have been approaching the farm day by day, stopping when not hearing anything and moving when they do.
Also, the world would be litteraly filled with such wandering hordes if you think a ZA would generate in the states alone hunderds of millions of undead.

They've mentioned it before.
Food is scarce and the walkers are moving out of the city, turnings into herds.
They just killed a group in the field, that was eating a steer.
These are just herds of walkers searching for food.
Locating the farm as a result of gunshots from ten days ago is not likely.
Any walkers within earshot of the barn slaying would of been there much sooner, if they even walked the right direction.
Herds move. They are going to continue to move looking for food.
Any herds within earshot, from ten days ago would be long gone. IMO

I'm not one of those who complains about every single thing regarding the show - it's the BEST show on TV.
But this bugs me somewhat. Maybe you guys have some excellent theories!

I still imagine walkers acting like turkeys. Taking the path of least resistance, and heading down hill. If something gets in their way (like a fence) the follow it until they find an opening. If a walker see's something (people/animals) they will follow it regardless of terrain.
A smart move on Rick's part would be to lead the walkers away from the house to another field, then double back. It would buy some more time for Daryl and Glenn to get back to the house, and everyone inside to prepare more and ready to bugout if need be. Unfortunately Daryl and Glenn do not have a clue about the herd of walkers in the field heading towards Rick and Carl.

Hershel said that the swamp is drying up so maybe the ones in the swarm are in such a large group because they were accumulated in the muck and now they are able to get out. Either they or there would be an area that is lousy with them. Walkers stumble in but they don't stumble out sort of thing.
In the first show of season II they showed a swarming instinct of a sort. Whatever the explanation of the appearance of this particular swarm, Rick's idea of using quiet means to deal with walkers instead of blasting away at them seemed a bit late, On the bright side we have an exciting episode coming up. Too bad we will have to wait for X-number of months to see what happens after that.

I think there were always zombies around the area (especially since its not THAT far from Atlanta). They just didnt end up near the farm because there was the swamp which provided natural protection, the farm had a lot of land around it which allowed the noise to dissipate, and little noise came from the farm in general.
With Rick's group came a huge increase in noise. Cars driving to and from the farm, shooting practice, barnyard massacre, more people making noise in the fields around the barn...All those noises probably attracted the zombies in the direction of the farm. Once zombies start walking in one direction, they seem to just keep going (unless distracted by something else). Then with the recent escaping cattle, the drying up of the swamps, the dale shooting, and the double shane shooting... those events/noises really brought all the zombies just right into the farm.
What suprises me is how the walkers didnt end up on the farm sooner! And, how rick, shane, glenn, and daryl didnt notice a whole herd of zombies in the forest while searching for randall. Thats the biggest plot hole i think.
PS - I just stumbled upon this site. It is so awesome!

They didn't use their guns - just farm tools, and the like. I think the pitchfork might have been my favorite kill, this season. I would have loved to play that zed!!
