jon berthal robert kirkman - Shane Will Not Be Killed Off Anytime Soon

Well since we all started watching The Walking Dead we have had our favorite characters, and well, are not so favorite characters such as Shane.  I think that Shane is one of those characters in the show that we all have some hatred toward, or would rather just see get taken out by zombies.  According to Robert Kirkman, Shane will not be going anywhere for quite some time.

“It’s hard thinking about killing any character,” Kirkman said in an official AMC interview. “If they’re good characters, there are always more scenes to write, but this is the nature of things: There are zombies around. People gots to die.”

According to Kirkman it wouldn’t be an easy decision to kill of Shane even though he was killed very early in the comic book series.  While the comic book and TV series do not follow line by line, there is some similarity and due to the fact that Shane is living on its creating some difficulties or challenges.  As they push on into the filming and writing of season 2 they are having to take parts of the comic book and try to merge them into the series, which having Shane around will alter some story lines.

Shane, played by Jon Bernthal, actually was a little nervous about his fate as character in the series due to a few reason.  The major one being how the character was killed off early in the comic book, and the second being there aren’t many fans who like his character due to things he has done in the television show.  Love him or hate him, Shane will be with us for awhile.

    That’s a good thing for the show. As an antagonistic characterer, he provides an excellent dynamic. AMC would be foolish to kill him off. In fact, Lori’s baby should be Shane’s- just imagine the tention and drama. And Shane should be immuned somehow to the infection (which should be some kind of government created weapon. Maybe parasitic in nature).

    Shane is the reason why the show is so successful he brings all the drama thats needed for this show, without him the show won’t be the same.  I bet the show will loose a lot of viewers including me.

    Guess it doesn’t matter anymore after this weeks’ killing of shane which brought to light a whole new dynamic of the show… “Zombies” that come to life without being bit.. they touched on this a few times in some previous episodes if anyone can remember- for example the 2 cops at the school that Shane and Rick drove to bring the outsider randall to and leave him there.. the 2 zombie cops were looked over by Rick and couldn’t see any bites but they really didn’t know what to think of it.. and clearly Shane becoming a zombie changes everything..

    “shane” really really really did make the show way more dramatic.. so it will be tough to see him go b/c he was so violent and became a totally different person living in a different world believing in survival by any means, even if it destroyed his humanity..  It was also very very very sad Dale being killed.. that one stung!!!!!

    I am so excited about the new character that’s coming next season; the hero that saved Andrea. It’s kind of cool and freaky at the same time. Any idea anyone?
