So Julie and I were talking about how unprepared the people in Walking Dead were for this horrible event to happen. And they just stumble along a bit blindly staying one step ahead of the walkers and the crazy people out there while slowly going crazy themselves because what kind of life would be preparation for this shit?
Which of course, the answer is Sam and Dean’s life because this is what they do and driving around the country killing monsters would seem pretty damn normal, and it would actually be pretty nice because for once the people they’d run into would actually know about the zombies (unlike that sheriff, who only thought he knew about zombies) and they’re used to living out of the impala and have a whole slew of weapons in the trunk and are pretty good about helping people out (looking at you, RICK).
And they’d run into this ragtag group who are slowly falling apart and Dean and Darryl would talk crossbows and Dean would consider flirting with Michonne, but probably be scared of her (not that he’d admit that). Sam would talk to Herschel and Glen and find out what’s been going on, while Dean brought Carl out of that shell he’s been building around himself. And he’d congratulate him on taking care of his little sister and tell him he’s an awesome big brother. And then he’d casually, or not so casually, threaten Rick and suggest he get himself together because losing his wife wasn’t the end of the world and he’s still got two children who need him to be a father.
