So this kinda contributes to the fact Ink is a unique one. In the tower he didn't describe his eyes as cloudy or anything else but bright green. Hmmm interesting information.
Here's an update for you, and I'm honestly surprised no one jumped on me getting something this wrong
I listened to The One With The Marking's assault on the Tower in chapter 11. After it runs away, Burt states he recognizes it as the one on the rooftop of the diner. If that's the case, The One With the Markings is also the one we see on the rooftop in Chapter 13. So...wonder if that brings us back down to one Pimp Ass Zombie or if there are two? Hmmmm........
I was extremely moved during the episode of purgatory i was almost brought to tears when Samantha was taken away. It was a very powerful chapter.
While reading this chapter i kept wondering why the zombies were keeping prisoners in the room above the hockey stadium. Samantha said the they were just food for them. But that idea just didn't seem right to me. After Samantha was taken away and was "eaten". i began thinking about what if they weren't eating people in the center of the arena.
My theory is that someone is not eaten be the Colored One but infected with a special strain of the virus that turns them into one of the "really smart ones" similar to Paul, The colored one or what ever you want to call him. Where they are sentient and can communicate.
I reckon that Samantha has been turned into one of these "really smart ones" and will make a appearance in the probably far distant future of this series and cause some problems and maybe she wont be evil and will still be a little bit human and Samantha and Hope and Datu can live happily ever after.
Please post your thoughts about this and thank you for reading.

I agree with you that Samantha will most likely make an appearance. Living happily ever after maybe not. I feel like she will pin Datu and hope and they will have to take her down. This will probably give Datu a bit more closure or maybe just some more balls so he becomes awesome again instead of a pile of tears.
I think this is a great idea. There must be a better reason why they captured those particular survivors alive. And I agree that she may come back in zombie form as a smart one. But I don't think she will show full compassion towards Datu & Hope. More like a "Please put me out of my misery before I kill you" scenario.

Does rocking the Claw Machine a worthy apocalyptic talent?
I agree with TB. I have a very hard time imagining what I heard in Purgatory was anything but Datu watching Samantha be killed. Everything I heard points to that, including the abrupt cut off of her scream. If Datu was watching, as it is heavily implied, and something other than Samantha being killed was happening (ie. The Colored One started to have sex with Samantha to create a Little One....which by the way I think is a ridiculous theory) his reaction would have been stronger because of the violation of Samantha.
There is an expectation Datu had when Samantha was pulled to the center of the rink. If something else happened, I'm pretty sure Datu would have reacted to it.
So, it kinda goes into his personality to kill as part spectator sport and to show his power.
Same died horribly and Datu watched the entire thing. That's why he's turned into such a cry baby. Even if Sam showed up later, no one would recognize her due to the mutation and defeats the purpose.
Those are my theories anyway.
Didn't Samantha talk about watching her friends torn apart?
KC: and, just because I said this on twitter:
"Datu is alive at the end of the episode" And "Datu is alone, on the ground"
she's alive and prego with one of the little one's...inks special forces
