In an online interview, it was revealed that Frank Darabont
envisioned having several self-contained episodes that would not continue the main story. One such episode would have been the season two premiere. It would have involved Sam Witwer
(who Darabont used in The Mist
(2007) and played the tank zombie in the series premiere) as a soldier in a Black Hawk Down
(2001) styled Atlanta. Witwer's character would have encountered several of the cast before being bitten and locking himself in the tank. See more

Often when a character draws a pistol the sound of a hammer being cocked is heard, but often the gun being used does not have an external hammer, but a internal hammer known as a striker plate (like a Glock). Or even with guns that have external hammers, like revolvers, we hear them being cocked but when we see the gun the hammer is still clearly uncocked. See more
