As I said in an earlier post, Shane and Rick cannot co-exist. It seems that there are two options: group separates or one of them dies. Of course, one can save the other, but, I don't think Shane would save Rick. And, Shane probably views Rick as being weak b/c he came back to save Shane. I want to see if this show has the balls to kill off one of its lead characters - it seems to be headed in that direction.
As for the knife usage, aren't the open wounds likely to get infected and be susceptible to infection? I could have sworn that Shane used the same knife to cut himself (by the fence), then kill a walker, and then cut himself again in the bus.
It doesn't matter how people are infected, or where "it" came from or why it happened. It just is.
That's the whole point, actually. There is no search for the answer, because it's not there. Surviving is the answer.
I was curious about the comics so I looked at the plot on wikipedia and wow, I didn't expect to see what I saw about Shane.
Rick and Shane did notice the security guards didn't have bites and they assumed it was scratches...maybe down the line they figure it out.
That he's gay? I was shocked, too.
I'm not spoiling anything b/c the show has clearly gone in a different direction, but Shane dies REALLY quickly in the comics and they find strong male characters in other places throughout the journey (2 in particular come to mind for those familiar).
Also, non-male characters step their game up. Andrea's pimp hand in particular gets outrageously strong as the comics progress.
"And I try to har-mo-nize with songs the lonesome sparrow sings...
There are no kings inside the Gates of Eden."
Right, but this is different. The show really centers around the two of them, virtually every major dramatic storyline includes one or both of them. To a certain extent this would almost be like killing one of Walt and Jesse, I just don't see how the show can go on more than a short amount of time with either dead.
major spoiler leaked? Details in article for anyone who doesn't want to know.
[Warning: This story contains a potential spoiler about The Walking Dead.] AMC may have inadvertently spoiled the upcoming three remaining episodes in Season 2 of The Walking Dead.
I volunteer to kill Dale. Stupid old fart.
I kinda hope Carl dies too. Stupid kid.
so this is the obligitory "young kid does stupid things episode"?
Great, now there's an armed zombie out there.
I really hope they spare Randall now and on his way out to join up with his people, he kills Dale. PLEASE LET THIS HAPPEN.
Christ this show has the longest commercials.
Yeah, I'd want to off Carl and Dale before the stranger. But I'd definitely want those two gone.
Even better, one is responsible for getting rid of the other.
Way to go Carl!
Can't stand it when everyone talks about what to do for 55 mins and then something big goes down in the end.
How hard it to push a anorexic looking zombie off of you?
I still like the show, but I think I'm beginning to just accept that (barring a change behind the scenes) it will have a few flaws that will keep it from being great. It's shown it's capable of some pretty intense, kick-ass scenes (e.g., in the bar, Sophia coming out of the barn, etc.), but in-between those, it feels like just a whole lot of filler at times. The emotional, character development type scenes seem to be lacking, and they often end either too abruptly or kinda lame. This week's example: Glen just saying "thanks" to taking the watch from Hershel, lol. I wonder if they should've gone the "Lost" route and used flashbacks to help fill in character-driven stuff -- worked pretty effectively for Lost. Seeing glimpses of these characters from back in the "normal" world before the infection might make them seem more interesting now, or at least provide more insight into things.
I'm fine with the show just being B+ if they don't use flashbacks. I hate flashbacks.
