A new theory about the importance of the character Laurent in The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon has emerged. In episode 2, it is revealed through flashbacks that Laurent was born from a zombie and miraculously survived. This supports the theory that he may possess immunity to the zombie virus. If true, Laurent's immunity could potentially lead to a cure for the virus and significantly advance the story. However, the predictability and lack of uniqueness in this twist may result in the show taking a different direction.
