so what gives? what's the verdict? I mean think about it....nobodies gonna die from a bite from a human being....unless it's to the jugular.....or it's a zombie.
it's semantics really. we know that everyone turns when they die but it could be that the bite itself causes death, like poisoning the body. Which is why Herschel didn't die or turn because they cut his leg before it spread.
