SpoilerTV point out the following post from The Walking Dead forum, Roamers And Lurkers, in which on of their members claims to be a part of the production team and goes on to reveal Shane's fate in the second half of the current season. It is of course best to take it with a huge pinch of salt. WARNING: MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD.

Shane does not make it through the season, essentially Lori puts into his head that if Rick wasn't around they would still be together. This makes Shane change AGAIN, (he had finally made peace and Lori fucked him up again). Anyway he decides to kill Rick and lures him into the forest chasing after someone you will meet in "Nebraska". Of course Rick isn't stupid he realizes nothing is adding up and tries to give Shane a chance to abandon his plans. Believe it or not Rick loves Shane like a brother, anyway he finally calls Shane on it and Shane basically tells him how Carl and Lori will get over his death. Shane has a gun pointed at Ricks face and seconds away from shooting, when Rick starts to negotiate his way out of it, all along pulling a knife out. Long story short he lunges at Shane and buries the knife in his chest.


If you've read The Walking Dead comic book series, you'll know that Shane dies at the end of the first volume after he is shot by Carl while attempting to murder Rick. Several volumes later, Rick returns to the spot where he buried him, digs him up and shoots the now zombie Shane. However, it seems as if the TV show will go in a very different direction.

SHANE COME'S BACK TO LIFE AS A ZOMBIE! - Carl shoots him, the whole thing is pretty fucked up. All this causes Rick to slowly change into a Shane if you will, believe me the show is going somewhere so crazy that Shane's death will not even be a burden, he served his purpose by helping Ricks character transform.


What do you guys think? True or not, it makes for an interesting read! Don’t miss the return of The Walking Dead on AMC at 9/8c on Feb 12, 2012.

HE lunges at Shane? The [frick]... That totally destroys Carl's story mechanic that will be a major factor in the future seasons! [frick] YOU AMC.

I doubt it'll be Rick killing Shane...they'll have Carly do it like in the comics...just wait and see...

We have to remember that this is tv and they dont want a 11 year old killing people, not even undead ones. I just want him dead already to help make room for characters more pertinent to the story line. Him a "DAWG"...OMFG I hate that character!!
BlueHawaiiSurfer - 2/7/2012, 7:07 AM
Sounds like they both get to kill him?!?! LOL, I'm good with that.
alphamale80 - 2/7/2012, 7:11 AM

CrowPirate1 - 2/7/2012, 7:13 AM

Damn. i like Shane on this show. I mean he has served his purpose, and is due for some bad shit to come his way, but i really don't want to see him gone.

it will be interesting to see Rick turn into a guy like Shane though.

This isn't really a spoiler. If you e read the comics, I mean.

This better be B.S. because this totally messes up Carl's character development. When he killed Shane it was the moment he forever lost his innocence and became a person who was willing to do whatever it takes to protect him and his family in their savaged world. Rick and Carl's relationship changes and other events spiral after this event (Carl killing one of the crazy twins cold-blooded, being unable to play with the other boys in the community, etc.). Rick and Carl's relationship becomes more complicated but more meaningful and they have a closer bond.

I wasn't too upset about Sophia dying EVEN THOUGH in the comic book, she becomes Carl's girlfriend and the fact that they're rushing their romantic relationship at the age of 11 reflects just how aware they are of how fragile their lives are. They might not live to be 15 or 16 when most people start dating.

I seriously don't know how much longer I can tolerate how this TV series is butchering the comic book. Season 1 was amazing but season 2 has been a travesty. The Hershel storyline in the comic book was brief but apparently it takes THIRTEEN whole episodes to tell the Hershel story in the TV series (I read the episode descriptions for the next 6 episodes and it sounded like they're still on the farm even at episode 13!).

If this really happens by the end of season 2, [frick] you AMC. Seriously, [frick] you.

lol rick kills shane? Season 2 is such a crapfest. Theyve stretched hersehel's farm so long theyll probably make the prison stay into 3 whole seasons. Hopefully Darabont steals Norman Reedus away too so the only 2 decent actors the show has can go to a real show.
CrowPirate1 - 2/8/2012, 5:19 AM
if they don't let Carl kill Shane... then.. I have doubts about a certain lady's death then in the future from the comics. These moments are vital to Rick and Carl's characters, and their deep layers.
