In defense of Lori here. Her reaction wasn't necessarily off base. Rick never said "Shane came back, and was bearing down on me from behind, I had no idea. Carl put him down, if he hadn't been there, I'd be dead". The way he told it, for all she knows, he could have set there with Carl and help him set up his shot instead of taking care of it himself. Context would help everything quite a bit. I'm sure a lot of this will get sorted out before long.

We all know Carl has "hardened" a bit, but up until this point, Rick hadn't told him that he was the one who murdered Shane. Carl probably still assumed it was somehow zombie or Randall related. So when Rick finally divulges the info that he murdered Shane(again, doing so with poor context) Carl is not only horrified that his dad murdered him, but Shane also played a large role in Carl's life. From being his father's best friend/partner, to being his stand in father figure when Rick was believed to be dead. So the love Carl had for Shane has a lot to do with why Carl is so disgusted at the idea of his father murdering him.

He did SUCH a poor job of explaining things, and it's almost like he prefers it that way and doesn't care. Either that, or horrible writing yet again. Previously, Rick had been so good with words and choosing them carefully in situations like this. He was always thoughtful, deliberate and insightful when he had spoken with Herschel in the past. A bit odd to me.

Could be that he's just so pissed he doesn't have a cool head, or that he wants to seem like a maniac in order to command more respect.


My BIG problem is that all of a sudden that stupid bitch Carol is being an instigator. "How could he not tell us". Give me a break. It changed nothing, whether or not you knew, between then and now. Again though, Rick could have provided better context and explained that he didn't know for sure until Shane reanimated.
