Of course, if it hadn’t been for Eugene making some calculated mistakes, they wouldn’t have heard this at all. The walkers were approaching as a herd when Eugene was up in the water tower.
He probably should have just stayed up there until they passed, rather than trying to climb down the long ladder superfast and injuring his knee, and then endangering Rosa’s life too. NEXT, a few clues you might have noticed from today’s episode without spoiling exactly what’s happening.
There have been other times on the show when walkers appeared to act differently and viewers weren’t sure how to take it. In Season 3, Episode 12, called “Clear,” Morgan tells Rick something about hearing walkers talking to him.
Scott Simple later said that he didn’t even know about Kirkman’s plan for the comics yet when this line was delivered. His take on walkers diverged quite a bit from the comics, and he made them smarter than the source material.
The short answer is no, walker scan ’t talk in The Walking Dead universe, and they haven’t suddenly gotten stronger. In fact, these aren’t zombies at all, but a different scenario entirely called The Whisperers.
I believe Smooth was developed to be the show's vision of the language Martin had in mind for his Others in the books. The Other said something in a language that Will did not know; his voice was like the cracking of ice on a winter lake, and the words were mocking.
Smooth was ultimately scrapped from the show as the producers felt it would lessen the impact of the introduction of the White Walkers. It’s called Smooth, and probably won’t end up being used even if White Walkers do one day speak.
“It was actually going to be for the very first scene of the show where the White Walker comes and cuts that guy’s head off. There are parts where you hear them kind of grumble and vocalize; it was going to be for that,” Peterson explains to Zap2it at San Diego Comic-Con.
” As “Game of Thrones” reveals more and more about the White Walkers and their culture, there’s always the chance characters like the Night’s King could speak. The White Walkers are a sentient and intelligent species, so some form language communication is to be expected.
As far as other forms of communications, Martin has been mum on whether the White Walkers share a bond with the wights they raise... Martin gives this response (or similar), come to be known as excellent cheese answers, to any question that he does not want reveal all the information on.
Unbeknownst to his family, Rick doesn't perish after blowing up the much-discussed bridge connecting the established communities that's infested with walkers. His wounded body is tossed into the river and washes ashore downstream, where Janis spots him and convinces the mysterious helicopter people to take him to safety.
Since apparently being blown off a bridge causes Rick to not give an f×ck about his family anymore, we're to believe he stays away and will never be seen on the TV series again. The end of “What Comes After” shows a family broken by the “death” of their leader before flashing forward a number of years (yes, again) to introduce us to a new face with a familiar name.
Since two-way radios, work on frequencies, they use frequencies as their mode of communications, to be able to see/hear another walkie-talkie transmission, it needs to be the same channel regardless of brand or cost of the radio device. High-end industrial two-way radios or walkie-talkies that use higher frequencies which are usually licensed to avoid interference from other radio devices cannot be used together or at least, needs programming to be able to be used together.
Go ahead and test it out, get two different two-way radios, set them onto the same channel and speak from one of them, listen to the other. As the aforementioned 12-word phrase hisses forth from the passing army of the dead, it's hard not to wonder how Eugene and Rosa didn't die immediately from fright.
Their stunned silence speaks volumes, both for the characters who inhabit the Walking Dead universe, and fans who have watched from a comfortable distance for several years. The longer answer is ahead, and contains comic book spoilers, so proceed with the same level of caution you would exercise around this guy.
In Robert Kirkman and Charlie Ad lard's Walking Dead comic book series, Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and the gang eventually stumble upon a new group of opponents known as The Whisperers. These men and women have survived the fall of civilization by essentially blending in with the dead, wearing skin suits made from human flesh, and adopting savage customs that align nicely with the walkers.
Showrunner Angela King remembers the moment vividly, and hopes the end of “Who Are You Now” evokes similar responses from the audience encountering these enemies for the first time. The Whisperers are responsible for the most vicious attack on the group since the arrival of Began (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), one that even rivals the war with the Saviors in terms of barbaric brutality.
Suffice it to say, there are two characters still actively involved in the Walking Dead TV series who do not survive the opening act of the so-called Whisperer War, a notion that's even more devastating to consider given the characterization of these individuals in the new time-jumped status quo. It allows them to share their interests with one another, warm others of predators, find a mating partner and teach their offspring how to live among many other things.
It is believed that singing is how they communicate to female whales that they are fit and a good choice for mating with. Toothed whales and dolphins on the other hand create unique high-pitched clicking sounds that appear to be used to communicate who they are to the rest of the members in the group as well as inform others of their intentions.
The forms of communication and vocal sounds created by whales differ from one species to another based on their physical features and social structure. Unfortunately when it comes to understanding their conversation little is scientifically known about the meaning of the clicks and whistles they use other than the fact that it is used to communicate and echo locate.
These unique frequencies can be thought of similarly to people having conversations in large room. Each person has a different vocal pitch and speed so that they can easily identify who is speaking in the room.
The same goes for the toothed whale suborder, and it is believed that these differences help individual members keep track of one another. These loud low-pitched sounds can be heard miles away and allow baleen whales to communicate with one another over great distances.
This is essential for helping them find other pod members, keep track of the location of other whales during migration trips, look for a mating partner, claim their territory or communicate a multitude of other important things to one another. The reason for this is that sound travels four times faster in the water than it does on land making it extremely important to the whale species in terms of survival.
Animals that rely on sound are able to get an early warming sign of predators in the area and are better able to travel safely and locate potential food sources. Because of the ever-increasing use of ambient sounds some researchers and scientists are concerned that these sounds being created by man-made ships, jet engine planes, sonar and other marine tools may hinder the whales ability to communicate and echo-locate which is extremely important for their survival.
Note : Some individuals believe that the increased number of reported teachings are the result of new technology such as smartphones, the internet and television rather than an actual increase in the actual number of whale teachings that occur on an annual basis. Echolocation is an extremely important tool in the toothed whales survival as it allows these marine mammals to navigate the ocean at night, locate potential prey and identify threats in the area using sound.
Because vision is extremely limited underwater and sound plays a much stronger and favorable role in their lives echolocation is one of the primary senses whales, dolphins and porpoises rely on every day. Whales use a combination of different surfacing behaviors such as spy hopping, lob tailing and breaching and are believed to display this type of behavior to show dominance, communicate a desire to mate and warn other whales of nearby dangers.
Dolphins have also been trained by humans to bobtail as a form of communication and to indicate a need or desire, such as to request food from a trainer or as a playful gesture. Charging may be used to show dominance or territorial behavior, or it may be used as a form of challenge or play between whales.
Whales can vary greatly in terms of their level of communication and active nature depending on their species. Walkers come in a variety of configurations these days, most fold for storage and transporting and all help keep people who are unsteady on their feet stay safe while walking and standing by providing a stable device to put their weight on.
The information below is an overview of several of the different types of mobility walkers available. Although there may be cheaper prices from online vendors, buying walker or collator that doesn't meet the user's needs will not save anyone money.
They generally consist of metal frame, usually aluminum, but I've seen them made of steel, with four legs and two hand grips. Collators most commonly come with four wheels (the front two swiveling), hand brakes, a seat and often a basket.
There are a few three wheeled models on the market that can be easier to use in tight spaces but can be a little less stable and don't normally offer a seat or tray for the user. Various sized wheels are available on collator walkers depending on the expected use of the model.
The backrest is reversed and a foot rest is mounted on the front of the collator to support the user's feet. The sits on the collator transport chair facing forward and the caregiver pushes from the back.
The more elaborate of the platform walkers may also have handles to grip and some type of braking system. Platform walkers seem to have disappeared from the home health care industry in recent years.
Gait trainers are usually used by people who have to relearn walking following an accident or young people who have never been able to walk but have the ability to move their feet and may with time be able to develop some independent mobility. Knee walkers are designed for people who don't normally have trouble walking but for one reason or another are not able to put weight on one of their feet.
