Walking Dead's Robert Kirkman: Lori's Surprising Results Are Only the Beginning

[Spoiler Warning: This story contains details from both Sunday's episode of The Walking Dead and the comics the AMC series is based on.] As if Lori's life in the zombie-infested world of The Walking Dead wasn't already tumultuous, she got some surprising news that will change the dynamic of the survivors.

Steven Yeun: 'The Walking Dead' aims for my groin

Life on the set of "The Walking Dead" isn't exactly glamorous -- after all, the cast and crew spend grueling hours in the Georgia heat and humidity surrounded by extras dressed like rotting corpses. "It seems like 'The Walking Dead' just kind of aims for my groin," Steven Yeun, who spent the latest episode dangling inches above a water-bloated zombie in a well, tells plays Glenn, one of a handful of survivors of a zombie-pocalypse and pretty much the go-to guy for tight spots and jobs no one else wants. Jobs like hooking a zombie with a massive fish-hook. But life isn't all close calls and rotting flesh for Glenn (and Yeun). The actor -- who cut his teethe doing improv with Chicago's revered Second City -- talked to Zap2it about the second season of AMC's hit zombie drama, his on-TV romance with Lauren Cohan (Maggie) and the unique on-the-job hazards he faces each...

The Walking Dead 2.04 "Cherokee Rose" Promo: Shane Explains Otis's Death

"Save the Last One," the third episode of The Walking Dead 's second season, established Shane Walsh (Jon Bernthal) as the character to watch for the season. That's not necessarily for a good reason, though: in the final moments of the episode, it was revealed that Shane had shot Otis in the leg and left him to be eaten by zombies in order to save himself (and, by extension, Carl). The scene that bookended the episode, of Shane shaving his head and looking hard at himself in the mirror, indicate that Shane's finding it hard to live with himself after that difficult choice. So what could be worse for him than to be asked to speak at Otis's funeral. In the video below, from next week's episode "Cherokee Rose," Shane has to eulogize the man he killed. He obviously can't tell everyone at Hershel's farm that he did the deed himself, so he tells a lie that glorifies Otis and leaves Shane blameless. Read More...

'The Walking Dead' sneak peek: Shane eulogizes Otis

The third episode of "The Walking Dead" was a pivotal one for Shane (Jon Bernthal). Shane looked within himself and -- faced with two chances, slim and none -- made a decision that cost one man his life so another member of his group could live. In Sunday's (Nov. 6) episode, "Cherokee Rose," the group gathers at Hershel's (Scott Wilson) farm to lay Otis (Pruitt Taylor Vince) to rest and try to make some sense of their senseless, zombie-infested world. In this sneak preview clip, Patricia (Jane McNeill) asks Shane to share some words about Otis' last moments. As we see flashbacks of Otis' grim final moments, Shane does the only thing he can: he lies.We got chills....

'The Walking Dead' Episode 4 Sneak Peek and Spoilers: Shane's Lies Continue

The end of Sunday's Walking Dead episode took a dark turn that, while it meant the sad demise of one character, also meant that one character just got a lot more interesting. Or, as Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman said, Shane has changed the game. I'm talking, of course, about the flashblack twist that viewers saw at the end of "Save the Last One," showing that -- contrary to Shane's story that Otis sacrificed himself to zombies so that Shane could get medical supplies back to save Carl -- Shane actually shot Otis in the leg so he could get away, and then watched as the walkers feasted on the suffering farmhand. Some might call it survival of the fittest. Others might call it cold-blooded murder. Since none of us have ever lived in a zombie-ridden post-apocalyptic wasteland, the morality's a little murky. But two things are for sure: Otis is dead, and Shane will never be the same. And I'm not just talking about his heavily-symbolic shaved head. To that end, check out this preview clip from The Walking Dead season 2 episode 4, "Cherokee Rose," in which Shane attempts to comfort Otis's grieving girlfriend Patricia by telling her the (fake) story of how -- and why -- he died:
