Just watched the 1st episode of the new season and damn..
That dude got his face bit (meh, normal for walking dead), but then he started screaming and blood got onto his bare. fucking. eye. and there was blood everywhere. That is a good actor if he can just scream and act like he's dying a horrible and painful death while fake blood got onto his bare eye. He didn't say "cut" or anything, he used the pain of liquid on his eye to his advantage.
Fair to say, that's the first scene of the walking dead that has scarred me.
Fuck, man. That was so fucked up. Like, just imagine that was real. I'd be having nightmares.
The Walking Dead just grew some balls.

I stopped watching it because they were basically using the same plot over and over again, just with slight changes and different characters. The plot is basically always: on the way to find a shelter. New characters are introduced. Group finds the perfect shelter. Everything is safe and quiet for a while. Conflicts arise. Character (s) die. Zombie horde takes over. Survivors barely get away, super intense gore scenes, rinse and repeat.
As for the blood on the eye (without seeing the actual scene myself) it sounds like something that was done in after effects, with a computer. Most of the really gory stuff tends to be reserved for the after effects, it would be unnecessary to splatter fake blood on an actor's eye, what with the chances of infections and such.4

IMHO they made it that way (gruesome) in order to reel you/us in again after months of us not seeing the show. Ya know for good ratings/to make us come back for next week's episode. But mark my words "in about 2-3 more" they'll (walking dead chars) go back to CAMPING in some "safe haven" with about 1 death every 4 episodes like #Lumos said #RinseAndRepeat LOL
