Shane was the most interesting character of the series... he was the perfect character that belong to this kind of situation...

This sucks...

Hopefully there is more gore and zombies attacks ahead or else this series are going to suck...

Shane died very early in the comics, similar situation excePt Carl killed him while he was living I believe. Glad he was fleshed out a bit more on the tv series. Season finale gonna be a blood fest.

how did they all first get infected though? if it's a virus carried in the blood, it has to be transmitted one way or another.. assuming they want to keep it somewhat realistic

Holy shit does that kid ever listen? Like seriously, how many times has he been told to stay ****ing put and stop wandering everywhere? Like what does he do all day? Just wander and look to be in ****ed up situations. EVERY EPISODE. Who the hell is watching the little prick!?!? I swear to God I want to backhand the kid and yell "STOP ****ING WANDERING OFF YOU LITTLE SHIT!!! ITS NOT CUTE ANYMORE!!!"

Anyways, looks like its going to be an awesome final episode.

Speaking of realistic.... how come they don't get infected when a zombies blood goes into their system... like Shane's wound.

Yeah Shane was a cool character and all but lets be real... Dude was f*cking nuts and wanted Ricks wife and kids and pretty much made it clear that he felt Rick was a p*ssy. Rick HAD to kill him & kill him soon. Would have been unrealistic to keep both him & Rick around for too long.

Looking forward to the finally! Hope Herschel makes it through alive & stays part of the crew for season 3. Dude is an underrated boss. Also i hope that g*y kid dies and glennsanity.

being alive basically keeps the virus at bay i think...once you die, its over. they can bathe in all the zombie blood they want and not be turned. and probably lori's unborn has sum antibody to make a cure being born from an infected. (im just speculating, not true)

Tdog had 2!!! lines.. finally getting recognized.

what would have been funny was shane coming back to life with being the first hybrid with memory and leading a war against rick

They didn't really make Shane's death emotional. Like him dying wasn't enough.
I mean, I was on my way of crying.. but when Carl shot Shane.. my mindset changed.. I was like "oh shit, Carl just shot SHANE....."

Firstly, stunningly gorgeous direction last night. The entire hunt for Randall, concluding with the moonlit showdown, was just exceptionally well done. Looked great, sounded great, was genuinely tense. The attack on Darryl and Glen in the dark was among the scarier moments in recent memory of the show.

There are obviously logistical issues with the show. I'm not opposed to where they're headed in learning about the spread of the virus. It's very possible that they are dormant carriers that are only triggered as active once they're bitten or when they die. It doesn't have to make perfect sense, just be logical enough within the way they write it. But even physical logistics with stuff like how does Rick not hear zombie Shane behind him. How do Glen and Darryl get snuck up on. Darryl is appearantly the pink panther of wilderness tracking. But all of that I can deal with if they keep the show on this emotional pitch. Losing too main characters in the past two weeks really keeps the no one is safe idea of the show going, and continues to put emotional strain on the group, which helps them from falling into hypothetical morallity dialogue that really isn't great for the show. I'm hoping that losing Shane will make Lori a more interesting character as she struggles with the relationship she had with him. It will obviously change Carl and Rick. And hopefully losing both Shane and Dale in two days time will drive Andrea to be more assertive and make her more interesting too. Even the emotional scene with Glen fixing the winebego I thought was well handled and is just another step in fleshing out Glen. And with Shane out of the way, you've already seen Darryll start to step into a bigger role as the groups best lone wolf who's skill set makes him too valuable to simply shun off his viewpoints.

Carl is really just not a good enough actor to pull off where they're headed with him. Now he's killed a zombie father figure whom he's shown more trust in than his real father even in this episode. There's a lot of stuff coming at him I'm not sure he can handle.
And one of my long stanging defenses of keeping the show on the farm was that the entire set piece was obviously ideal for a zombie horde overrunning it, and it appears we're finally going to get that.

Personally I thought Carl finally "reconnected" w/ his "real" dad Rick after their talk in the barn which was AFTER Carl's talk w/ Shane about stealing Daryl's gun.

Now that it's sunk in, I can finally accept Shane being killed, gonna miss him though.

I also think Rick didn't hear zombie Shane cause his mind was overwhelmed w/ just killing his best friend ex-partner and having to figure out how to explain to Carl what just happened.
