    Who knows with Lori. Carl is probably the mailman's. :p

    Unkind and unfair. As Lori pointed out herself, Shane did make it real clear that Rick was dead. And she got together with Shane to help deal with her grief at losing Rick - in her words IIRC "to feel something"

    Sleeping with 2 men hardly makes someone a ho. Esp if it happens in a zombie apocalypse. ;-)

    I think they were sleeping together for a while before Rick's return but that has absolutely nothing to do with who is the father of her child. If she conceived around the time of Rick's return (even within 1 month) then how can we possibly know? I am trying to think what kind of hint you got other than for timing to be mentioned, which I don't remember. There is no DNA test and even if you say the timing doesn't add up for Rick you have to remember that her length of gestation was only a guess and we don't know if the child was pre-mature or past due for that matter. Can you please tell me what hint you got because it is killing me that I missed something so obvious.

    How do we know it was just 2? She could have been "feeling" something from Merle at the time. She just thought he was dead too and never said anything. I'm waiting for Merle to show up at the prison at some point and say "Whadda ya know - the kid has my eyes". The kid did take a liking to possible Uncle Daryl. :D


    Merle has a way of talkin' to the ladies. My favorite line from Season 3 episode 4: :rofl:

    Merle to Andrea: "Hey blondie - How come we never hooked up?"

    Andrea to Merle: "Because you called me a whore ....and a rug-muncher".

    There was never anything overt, but rather subtle and unsaid. Towards the end of the first season we began to suspect Lori was preggers. However Rick spent most of the first season away from the group. Shane had more opportunity and then there was his reaction when he found out she was expecting. Then Lori tried to hide her pregnancy from Rick. Perhaps she suspected Shane as the father and was worried about Rick's reaction. Then Rick assures her he will look after her when he learns about the baby. If he was her only partner then it would be a given that Rick has to look after both her and the baby so he would not need to say so. If anything the discussion would have been should they keep the kid given the world they are living in.

    Rick reassured her than it didn't matter. Remember, Shane insisted that Rick was dead. In all probability Rick was dead, but he didn't tell her the truth.

    And they had that discussion. Lori considered that she might be giving birth in a ditch and that the newborn might endanger them all. But the possibility of a new fresh life in such a world was really alluring I suppose. Gave them something to live for in world of death. IMO that flew in the face of all reason, but there it is.

    There are certainly a lot of commercials tonight.

    I'm thinking Rick is hallucinating the phone calls.

    I think perhaps it is the Governor's people. When Carol was practicing on the walker someone was watching her. I'm just guessing however.

    Okay, so he was hallucinating. Meh.

    I keep trying to cancel my cable, but this show keeps sucking me in. Glad Michonne got there with the formula.

    And Andrea and the Governor? Ew.

    I haven't watched this last episode so it safe to assume Carol is okay?

    I am SO GLAD they did not spend the entire season with Carol missing/presumed dead. It wouldn't have been so bad since they just thought she was toast but everyone (viewers) knew she was still somewhere. I don't know why she was so weak, hasn't it only been a day or so? Is she hurt? Probably just more weak writing. Looks like things are about to get very interesting between the two camps!

    I noticed that Rick called the child his baby and Lori told him it was their baby. Of course, Lori's voice was a hallucination but is this the writers way of letting us know that the child is in fact his or is it just his in that it is his responsibility? As you can see, I still don't buy the idea that we were ever led to believe the child was Shane's. lol

    Well, Shane clearly thought there was a good chance it was his, and Lori told him "even if it is yours, it's never going to be 'yours'. ". Also, this season, when they first found the prison and were camping out on the lawn eating around a campfire, Daryl and Carol were on watch in the tower and commenting on pregnant Lori's appetite. Daryl says "Little Shane sure is hungry." Carol says "Don't be mean."

    I wanted to see more of a reaction from Daryl when he found Carol. It would have been telling about how he really felt about her. As he opened the door and noticed she was alive, even a surprised smile, a tear or a quick kiss and hug would have been telling. I want to see these 2 end up together. Carol seems like a liberated new woman since losing her abusive husband and only child.

    He doesn't know that it is his biologically. The baby is female, right? That could complicate things, but unless the baby grows up to look clearly like one or the other, we won't know.

    But it his baby emotionally, and that's all the matters.

    I hope they raid a medical facility and find a paternity test that only requires a swab of the mouth. Do those exist? lol

    I am glad Carol is alive and expect she is just exhausted and tired and not harmed or has some trouble because of some zombie

    I was fearing that we would have to wait for so many episodes like when Sophia disappeared in Season 2
