Ah, gotcha. I didn't pick that up during the episode, but now I remember it from next week's preview. In that case, it does seem stupid that they would have gone all the way into downtown.
Something else I noticed was that a few of the zombies seemed to show some sort of intelligence. Specifically, the guy that picked up the rock to smash at the door and the guy that climbed over the fence. Not sure if these were just methods of ratcheting up the tension, but they go against the norm of most zombie movies, so it may have a deeper implication.
