Proving his full nerdiness, Hardwick showed up dressed as Marty McFly from Back to the Future. From '80s jeans to a red puffer vest, he kind of nailed the look. He even managed to nab a shot with Henry Cavill while wearing the getup. Oh, Geek Lord, you rule again.
Nerdist's lead science nerd mentioned a theory for the walker virus and before we knew it, the theory was explained. We're terrified we'll get this wrong, but the basic gist is that the finale appearance and actions of zombies are actually a reaction to the germs in their bite, not a zombie virus-thing. Hardwick, by the way, suggested that being a walker might actually be a state of super-happiness. As in, all that groaning is from la petite mort, not from being undead.
Let us explain:
Hardwick's hashtags are too much. They're an art.
We always enjoy seeing Hardwick's mug on our screen, but sometimes he's a little too perky after terribad things happen on our favorite show. Not cool. Turns out, he didn't like it, either, and finally refused.
We've done a lot of interviews and we knew exactly what Hardwick was talking about when he mentioned stars who will work with a journalist and help them out and those who will let you squirm. It turns out Harrison Ford likes to torture people interviewing him and gave Hardwick a pretty rough interview. It's Nerdist Episode 430 if you want to check it out.

Look it up. You're going to need it. (Thanks, guys!)
This, of course, was not Nerdist or Hardwick's only event. They recorded podcasts in town and did some moderating as well. If Comic-Con named a homecoming king, this year's crown would go to Hardwick. The Nerdist panel was still our favorite part, though.
