She didn't say "let's kill Carl", she was going to refuse surgery. You know that people actually do that every day, right? I've known any number of people that have refused surgery for a loved one. Sometimes it's because the chances of survival weren't good anyway, and this wasn't during a zombie apocalypse.
That is like comparing apples to oranges. She wasn't declining surgery because her son would feel pain or because he was in a coma and he was going to die anyway. It is not a valid comparison.
And she made her choice with the abortion. She chose to have the baby.
And you don't see the hypocrisy with the Carl decision at all? She was irresponsible enough to even get pregnant in the first place, but the zombie apocalypse is no place for an 8 year old. For a baby? It works.
And setting the 2 of them at odds is part of the reaction she has to Rick actually killing Shane. Let's not dismiss the fact that Shane tried to rape her. Oh and that he kept telling her that she was his and that Rick couldn't protect them. And Rick wasn't getting that. YOu don't think that her telling him that didn't help wake up Rick to what was going on? You really think that Shane would have let it go? Because there is no indication of that.
I'm ok with her telling Rick to kill Shane if she was consistent. But she's not. One day she's nice to Shane, one day she's not. She is very inconsistent. And honestly if it wasn't for her waffling, Rick and Shane maybe could have worked things out.
Shane wanted to be the alpha, and that meant taking out Rick. It was going to happen sooner or later.
So let's kill him!
As far as the affair, Lori and Rick (on the show) had been having major problems. She wasn't sure she still loved him. And Shane knew about it and knew she needed comforting and took advantage of it. SHe said it herself that she felt dead and just wanted to be comforted. Even Rick understood that.
Yeah ok. I don't even know where to start with this. Oh yeah, how about: DON'T LEAVE YOUR SON ALONE IN A CAR IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT DURING A ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE SO YOU CAN GET BANGED DOGGIE STYLE BY YOUR HUSBAND'S BEST FRIEND!!!
The only one who didn't get it was Shane. And apparently comic book fans.
