Answer: Always kill the zombie baby because it will eat you otherwise. As evidenced by the fact that said baby (and its zombie mama) kill Hammond. What!?! Dude from Lost got offed in the first episode? That's some Game of Thrones realness for you.
But not before they pick up this dude, named 10k, so named because his mother was a hippie and was high when she gave birth. Just kidding! He renamed himself 10K because he plans on killing that many zombies.
And finally, Simon decides he’s had enough of just sitting around and doing nothing, so he decides to rename himself Citizen Z, broadcast over the airwaves and help our ragtag gang of survivors get to California. It's all very WKRP in Cincinatti, except Citizen Z isn't Venus Flytrap as played by Tim Reid, that show didn't have zombies and also the setting isn't Cincinnati (two sitcom jokes in one recap).
