I'm not sure what to think about the whole Shane/Lori thing yet. I can never judge a character 'till I've seen their side of the story too.
On one hand, Rick was in a coma, with no way to defend himself. There was always the chance that the walkers could have gotten him already. So, for all they know, Rick is probably dead. And I don't think it counts as cheating if your spouse is dead.
And on the other hand, Lori could have just said, 'Oh, hot best friend. This will do.' So yeah, I can't judge her until I see her side of the story. :P

I agree with ForsakenMoon, never liked the idea. I never liked the both of them. Lori always seemed sort of demanding. I know she was going through a hard time with the prospect that her husband may be dead and she would have to raise their son alone through that time, but she could have found comfort in ways that didn't involve cheating on her husband.
Shane was psychotic, and who would do that? Sleeping with your buddy's wife than trying to kill him later does not sound like something any real friend would do. They were both being selfish.

I totally agree with you!!! And how creepy was it that Shane seemed like he had his eye on Rick's wife the whole time??? I mean he picked the oppurtunity to take advantage of Lori when she was feeling desperate and scared without her husband!! And why wouldn't she just take Rick off life support if she didn't feel he'd survive instead of leaving him for the zombies to get at!!! Makes me wonder if something was going on between these two before the apocolypse!!! Both r selfish, psychotic and ungrateful!!! Neither deserved to be forgiven so easily by Rick, although I know with Shane that never happened. I seriously think Rick needs to dump Lori, she carried Shane's baby for Christ sakes!!!

I think that Darabont intended for Lori to ultimately be a slightly flawed but sympathetic character and that was how Sarah Wayne Callies was hoping viewers would see as well, judging from the interviews I've read. But I think both seriously underestimated the reaction that many fans would have to Lori having an intimate relationship with a man so quickly after she thought her husband had died. I think where Darabont and the other writers screwed up is not devoting any screen time to depicting Lori grieving over her dead husband, being hesitant about getting close to another man, or having any initial discomfort with being intimate with Shane. He just had them in epi 1 acting like they had been lovers for some time when it had only been 28 days since Shane had lied to her and (apparently)told her he had seen Rick killed. Then, the writers follows that up with the steamy love scene in the woods between Lori and Shane that would have never made it past the the major networks' censors, given how it ended.

Lori just seemed to make Rick a faded memory just a little to quickly, zombies or no zombies. All the while, the Shane/Lori love affair is being contrasted sharply with her heroic husband's story of his undying love for Lori and Carl and his willingness to take on a whole army of zombies to be reunited with them. How could Darabont expect fans to not hate Lori? He chose to break sharply from the comic book version, in which Lori instantly regrets sleeping with Shane and is filled with guilt to what we saw in the woods.

I don't think it's really a matter of whether Lori "cheated" on her husband or not, if she thought he was dead. It's the seemingly cold and callous way she entered into the new relationship with Shane and how comfortable she looked doing it that turned off a lot of viewers. I think for many fans, the horror of what the survivors were facing just didn't really justify her behavior.

And watching how loving and tender Lori was toward Rick in epi 3 when they were reunited, I just found that all hard to accept. She seems to have no problem switching from her husband to her husband's best friend and then back to her husband, all over a period of about six weeks. She needs to be careful. She might call out the wrong name when having sex with whoever.

Sorry SWC and JB, but I think Lori and Shane have become those unlikable characters that should be killed off and soon. I for one, would really like to see Rick end up with Andrea, but have the relationship develop more slowly. Don't make the same mistake twice.

You all hit the nail on the head. She jumped a little too soon for my liking, and I hope they kill off crazy Shane. Sure, he tried to save Rick on the show, but if he were a true friend who really respected him, he would not have made the moves on Lori. I like the idea of Andrea/Rick in the future. I have not read the comics, but know Lori allegedly has Shane's baby and they die. In the show, the sex was kinda too close to know for sure who the father would be without DNA....I wonder how the writers are going to handle this.

Even if they both thought Rick was dead it was so sleezy of them to get it on as soon as they did!! Thats disrespectful!! I have a dislike for them both just for the fact that they clearly did not mourn his death. Rick deserves better than them both!!

It's not just that she had an affair. It's that she had no faith or hope in her husbands survival. I would have wanted to see my husband before I went anywhere, Dead, Alive or Zombified... I'd want some kind of proof.

It seems convinient that Rick is assumed dead and she just so happens to fall for his friend. I think Shane has always wanted to have what Rick has. She lures Shane in and then knocks him back everytime. She sneaks off into the forest for a quick romp... what if a Zombie ate them?? Carl would be all alone... He'd have the group but No mum... and as far as he knows no dad.

She has too much repsonsibilites to be acting like a frat girl.

I'm not a huge Lori fan and she shouldn't have slept with Shane, BUT, she did believe her husband was dead, and they're in the middle of a freaking Zombie Apocalypse, so I doubt her actions are the same as what they would have been under normal circumstances.

I totally agree with corpusboy.

I mean, I can understand Lori sleeping with Shane under the cirumstances, I can understand that she felt really alone without her husband, probably scared shitless, and she felt like she could lean on Shane since he basically saved her and her son... In all the horror and terrifying situations they were in, she probably found some kind of safety in Shane and she desperately grabbed it, I can understand that. Especially knowing that she believed her husband to be dead. The situation probably got the best of her, she realized she was facing an apocalypse, she had a son to take care of and she was alone, being with Shane took some of the pressure and she went for it. I can understand all of that.

I think the mistake was in the writing. The situation can be totally understandable, like I just said, but THEY didn't make it understandable. They should have shown more hesitation, more grief towards Rick, without showing that it just seemed like she jumped to another relationship (with his best friend!) right after her husband's death without even so much as a thought.

I'm sure it wasn't like that, and like I said, put in that position I can kind of get it, but the fact that they didn't show the process and Lori's emotions at all makes it hard for viewers to sympathize.


Also it's less understandable for Shane. I mean, seeing as he started a relationship with his best friend's wife so soon after his "death" just makes you think he always had a thing for her so then he starts getting unlikeable, I mean, it's your bf's wife!


I think it could have been more understandable and easier to sympathize with if they had developed it better. The way they did it makes the characters of Lori and Shane a bit unlikeable.

It's not her fault, she thought he was dead, Shane was there for her. Yes, it may have happened a bit soon, but they all knew they could die at any time. I don't blame her for wanting to be with the person who kept her and her child safe, while she still could. If she'd kept fooling around with him after Rick came back, that'd be a different story.

In the comic she only slept with him once as far as I've read (which is pretty far) and felt more grief than depicted in the television series. She was in a lustful relationship to get over grief? Have you no respect for the husband you just abandoned for dead? I have two children with my husband, but if we were faced with a zombie apocalypse I would need to see for myself that my husband was truly gone. And even then! His best friend? really? When he had already hinted that he had wanted this long before anything had ever happened, it's hard to believe it was an in the moment thing more than a calculated plan. I think people give Lori too much credit for what she did, saying "Oh I thought you were dead!" .... So? You didn't know for sure. Even if, it wasn't very long before you were on that guys lap for comfort. The TV series made her a very hate-able character because of the lack of grief she showed towards missing Rick, the fact that she easily tossed his ring and locket aside before taking it from behind from another man, and that when he did return she tried to play it off like nothing happened.

I don't agree with the "impending doom so get whatever ass she can get" kind of deal. Call me old fashioned.

I know she wasn't technically cheating on him because she thought he was dead, but how cold was it for her to move on so fast (and with a guy Rick worked with and trusted)? It was like she didn't even care.

I understand that she felt scared and needed someone to take care of her and Carl, but there was no reason for her to sleep with him.

Lori jumped into a relationship with Shane right away and spent the time after Rick returned as if trying to convince herself she was happy he was alive and back. She still had the emotional bond to Shane, as shown by the turmoil she had in every scene with him.

It's worse than Cast Away, with Lori waiting a month before bedding his best friend. Wow, a whole month. It really did come across as she wanted it as much as Shane, it was just appearances holding her back, not real love for Rick. I know that zombies or not, if my wife died, I'd be devastated and would have trouble eating for a month, much less trying to get with her best friend.

Sending Glenn and the other woman into danger, intending to kill her baby, thinking it would be better if Carl died... it all added up to her character being despicable.

Nobody ever seems to remember how Shane must have had his eye on his best friend's wife for a long time and pounced on the first opportunity to make his move on her. They also don't seem to recall the fact that she and Rick were on the verge of a marital break-up when all this happened. Not making excuses here, but it's just part of the storyline.

She thought he was dead. He got shot and was hospitalized. He never came home. There was no way of knowing if he'd ever survive and she had already been through so much with Shane during the beginning of the apocalypse. However, having sex with my husband's best friend would be the last thing on my mind if I were her. Taking care of my son would be my first priority.

Also... having sex in the woods out in the open... LOL!!! So smart. I like how fast they went and how she got pregnant and all. Lori and Andrea were such smart women. /sarcasm
