The reason Rick and Glenn are covered in red is all their own doing. The two fellas need to get inside Atlanta, which has been all but overrun with the undead. Rick notices that while the zombies don't seem too bright they never attack each other. They soon realize it's because they all stink, and the dead can smell their own. So the only way to get into the city on foot without getting attacked by 1,000 of ex-citizens is to cover oneself with zombie blood and shamble in, quietly. Because they are also attracted to noise. What you're seeing here is the quiet and smelly tip-toeing through hundreds of the undead, hoping not to get caught.

Yes; their zombies follow Romero rules...which are actually that ANYONE who dies turns into a zombie, from any cause. Its just that zombie bites always result in a fatal infection.

But if you're careful, you can cover yourself in zombie gibs/blood, and it won't infect you or anything, and you'll smell like a zombie so they'll ignore you.

Hmm...some theories were that Zack hunts "warm bodies" and could just tell people were alive.

That always got me angry; that had to be some sense to how they hunt; so its good that its based on smell mostly.
