The network also revealed additional members of the “survivor’s camp”: Andrew Rothenberg as Jim; Juan Pareja as Morales; Iron E. Singleton as T-Dog; Jeryl Prescott Sales as Jacqui; Melissa McBride as Carol; and Adam Minarovich.

Although in that episode the words “God Forgive Us” a scrawled in blood on the wall, the show’s blog notes that for the convention display the language had to be changed to “Please Forgive Us.”

    waitaminutewaitaminutewaitaminute…THAT was what they had a problem with?! There's dead bodies on the floor and somehow the house depicted is apparently floating sideways according to the perspective on those out-the-window zombie shots, and the only change they want is god taken out? This religion shit's never going away if you keep giving mere words that much power. Maybe “fix that window perspective” somehow got turned, through a long game of “telephone” I'm sure, into “Get my imaginary friend off your wall!” Ridiculous…..
