I wonder if the smoke from the fire during The War might have contributed to the zombies departure at that time.

    If the haze turns people into zombies it would make sense to imbed a command to make them move out of the area once they've turned. I'd love to see this theory tested. I wonder if Burt had any smoke grenades in his hidden store room?
    Zombie collectors would have taken the dead at ground zero like everywhere else but they were left behind. If they were all turned to zombies then the area would have no bodies. Also for zombies as a whole to fear the haze they might have all tried to go in to ground zero.

    Just a theory, but everyone wants to know what is at ground zero, even Pinstripe. Maybe Pinstripe ordered zombies to go into ground zero but they died. Skittles mentioned to Angel and Kalani that he didn't think there were any more Jumper zombies around. Maybe Skittles saw the dead Jumpers around ground zero or saw Pinstripe ordering them leaping into ground zero and dieing.

    I agree with Todd that we don't know if the Haze will kill zombies. Also, I am wondering if the bodies lying around are from people that died without actually being infected and then with the Haze covering them the zombies couldn't get them to carry away.

    One other note, how close to the Haze were the closest reports the Tower gained from survivors? None of them seemed to mention the Haze that we know of. That may be because the Haze did affect everyone that it came in contact with it or maybe the Haze came later. It might have had a very contained area that infected the first few (if the Haze is part of the cause) and then slowly spread further. I can't remember, did Victor and Pegs remember seeing a Haze, or did any of the reports we heard from the other Tower mention it. Maybe the Haze is a 'new' thing.

    It's funny, but as I was reading this I started to ask myself the same question you finished with. Is this a new thing? Perhaps, there were zombies in and around Ground Zero for a time, but moved out when 'The Haze' began to take over the area.

    The other questions I would have are:



    • Is The Haze spreading beyond its current borders--as determined by Victor--or is it remaining localized?
    • If The Haze is relatively static, is it comprised of a living 'thinking' spore or other organism, rather than gas particles?
    • If The Haze is sentient (a 'thinking' organism) that would account for the hive mind behaviour displayed by the zombies.

    I had a thought the other day. What if the haze, the cracks, and the zombies are separate events. That is, one kills the zombies (and everything else, people and plants), the other event makes zombies.

    Something or someone causes the zombie outbreak to happen in Inglewood. Then another organization, CIA, FBI, or what ever, tries to stop it by creating the haze that kills everything. The only problem is the haze kill zone is not as wide as the zombie creation zone. This explains why bodies were left behind at ground zero and why zombies clear out when there is haze around. This also explains why CJ's scout changed into a zombie before going to far into the haze.

    For sure, I believe the haze kills, or is a way to stop the zombies. Although I'm still not sure if the cracks are part of the haze or part of zombie creation.

    Perhaps the haze is simply nature's way of bringing back balance to the world.

    I was thinking along these lines as well. Back when Michael heard the explosions during class, my first thought was that some organization was trying to contain the event, although it proved to be ineffective. Since both the zombie outbreak and the containment effort would be centered around Ground Zero, it would be hard to tease apart the aftermath of the two.
