Lori...well. Everyone with their HUNDRES OF POSTS >_< . Have already pretty much summed up on why she is useless. She got more screen time then T-Dog who did at least 4xs the amount of work she did the entire series. All she did was yell at rick and manipulate him into being top dog. I wish her death could of been a lot more dramatic then it was.
I will say I agree with Scarecrow on the Studded Turkey post. That really fat zombie, stuffed full of Lori was just a really good scene to put in. Made sense with the phone being put in.
I disagree with the statements being made about Carl. He is a smart an useful kid. Wise and Mature for his age. He has to be in this world. Let us not forget that in the comics he saved Rick's life early on, by killiung Shane. They took that out in the tv show. They had to have him kill Lori to add in that element. Now he is always running off and trying to help because Rick is his dad and he is proud of him. I think secretly that he blames himself for not looking for his dad when Shane said he was dead. So now that his Dad is back, he is making it up to him by trying to man up.
Yes all the mistake he made with the walker and Dale's death were stupid, but that is how you learn. Carl is 10, or 11 years old after all. But I think Dale's death and Dale forgiving Carl with his eyes in the field, made Carl really step up and become a vital member of the group. Now you got to remember Carl might be a kid but it is the end of the world. He has a gun and is trained very well on how to use it. So he is now a protector of the group and a value member of the team.
