See Who Killed the Most Zombies and How in The Walking Dead's First Season (INFOGRAPHIC)

It's no secret that lots of zombies died (again) in the first season of The Walking Dead. In fact, 88 of 'em bit over the course of just six episodes. But sometimes a man has questions. Questions like: How many zombies did Rick Grimes kill with a shotgun? Which episode featured the most zombie deaths? And did Carol ever get off her ass and shoot a meatbag?

To answer these questions, TV.com designer David Fung put together this handy infographic charting every single zombie takedown from Season 1, plus who did the dirty work, how each walker was killed, and which episode it happened in. The graphic also works as a convenient leaderboard, because as everyone knows, it's not just surviving a zombie apocalypse that matters, it's how many kills you rack up!

The Walking Dead Season 2 premieres Sunday, October 16 at 9pm on AMC.

Merle Dixon wasn't in the first episode 'Days Gone Bye', he didn't appear till 'Cuts'. I think you've got your kills a bit mixed up.

In TS-19 as they are running out of the CDC, doesn't Daryl decapitate a zombie with an ax? Does that not count or is that what the bat is referencing?

I love it! I hope you continue! But could you make the colour of the dots a little more obvious? They are too hard to tell apart.

I haven't watched the series, and I really hesitate watching sth about zombies, yet every time I see a news here or a trailer from an episode on tv, I keep on wondering: how is it possible to kill a zombie? I mean, if they are raised from dead (which is the definition of a zombie as far as I am concerned:D), even if someone, somehow kill them, can't they return from dead again? I wonder:)

the reason zombies can move is because parts of the brain still function and perform minor tasks (walking, eating), so in the show it is explained (as it is in every zombie-story I've ever heard) that in order to "kill" a zombie, you have to destroy the brain - aka smash their heads in or kill them with headshots. ;)

PS: it's 87 kills total, which gives Rick a total of 50.575% of the kills. ;)

I'd just like to mention that that graphic implies quite a certain level of obsession. I have no problem with it.
