vid title: Lonely Little Petunia
music: "Lonely Little Petunia" by Imogen Heap
source: The Walking Dead, season 4
duration: 1:09
notes: Made for wiscon_vidparty 2014. Strangely, not long after I submitted I read Darby Orcutt's The Spectrum of Cognition in The Walking Dead at in media res, which partly sums up this vid (but change everything to person first language instead).
summary: Lizzie survived in a world lacking resources for little girls.

This is so creepy and disturbing, about zombies and blood and guns and yet oddly innocent at the same time. I haven't seen the show so I'm sure I'm missing nuance, but your summary and the imagery is really evocative. Like the ways she's figured out to understand the fucked up world and survive in it are chilling and yet make sense in child!logic? The teasing the zombie with food, omg.

Basically, yes. Lizzie seems to be neuroatypical, but the way they live doesn't meld with her perception. The way Lizzie looks at the walkers is the way you or I would look at a deer. It's another life that's equal to her life. She's friends with the walkers, plays with them, and feeds them. No one else sees everything the same way Lizzie does, so she tries to show them. What they saw was her murdering her sister and talking about killing the baby. Lizzie was attempting to show them what she saw; how the walkers could be her friends. The others (mainly Carol) came to the conclusion that Lizzie couldn't continue living with the group because it endangered too many other lives. So Lizzie was killed.
