Btw, I'm still bothered by the idea that cutting off limbs and jaws of the zombies and tying them up around the neck somehow makes them stop going after people.

Wouldn't blame the actors though. The material just isn't that great.

The show isn't bad, it's just that return episode sucked. It was just pretty contrived with what they were trying to do. I think they would have been better off if they showed Carl getting a bit overwhelmed by numbers and barely escaping instead of making him a complete retard. And also, not devoting so much time to just Carl.

The show isn't bad, but I have a hard time putting it above "pretty good."

It was suggested that in season 3, doing so suppresses their urge to feed. Additionally, it also compliments season 1's "guts" episode and season 3's(episode where michonne visits prison for 1st time) in suggesting the smell of walkers on or near you acts as repellant or camouflage.

so then one walker attacking you would camouflage you from other walkers, if the writers followed logic

Possibly, then there's the distance between the 2 bodies vs the smell of a living body.

In the 2 episodes I mentioned the characters both have walker guts smeared on them to a degree. If you're being attacked then perhaps the smell isnt strong enough yet to mask your scent.

1 walker attacking would probably indicate to other walkers to also attack you.

That to me indicates that there is learned helplessness, which would involve more parts in the brain to be active than suggested that works.

Also remember similar to following vampire lore zombies can be attracted to the smell of blood as well. Remember on the highway when T Dog cut his arm?

That and the actual sound from someone screaming during an attack would be another alert since they are also attracted to noise.

Also the person is probably screaming.
