Robert Kirkman Teases Big Shane And Rick Confrontation On THE WALKING DEAD

The feud between Rick and Shane has been building for weeks now on AMC's The Walking Dead, and executive producer Robert Kirkman says that something has got to give and that something might come in this weeks episode 18 Miles Out.


We are two episodes into the mid-season return of The Walking Dead and shows producers are building tensions between Shane and Rick. Between the incident with Hershel's barn and Lori being pregnant there has been no love lost between these two characters. Comic creator and executive producer Robert Kirkman did a phone interview with MTV and said that it will all come to a head in this weeks episode 18 Miles Out. "In the very next episode, we're going to see some explosive interactions between those two men. We've been building to quite a bit of stuff this entire season, and it's all coming to a head. The fact that Lori's pregnant and nobody knows who the father is, these two are constantly butting heads over leadership and what's best for the group… it's really putting Rick and Shane at an impasse," said Kirkman. Shane's decent down a darker path and Rick's constant struggle to maintain some type of order in the group should only add fuel to the fire as well.

Those hoping to see the two come to blows you may be in luck. Kirkman had this to say about the possibility of the two duking it out, "In our episode on Sunday, I'm not trying to say they're going to come to blows… but they're going to come to blows." He also went on to say that this Sunday's episode is going to be epic, and that he is excited for people to see it.
