Comic Book writes:
“The scene Lincoln is recalling was not far from the first on The Walking Dead. In fact, the first scene may have taken place only a few days or weeks later as Lincoln’s Rick gunned down the first walker the show would introduce as a little girl holding a bunny rabbit with a ripped open face approached.”
