    But do you really think Shane knew that Rick was alive when he left him in that hospital ? Maybe I'm biased because I love Shane/Rick bromance very hard but to me he really thought he was dead

    This has always been ambiguous to me and I want to know the answer as well. I can see it several ways:
    - Shane legitimately thought Rick was dead
    - Shane thought Rick was dead, but knew there was a chance he wasn't; Shane chose to believe Rick was dead to make leaving him easier (this is what I lean toward)
    - Shane knew full-well Rick was alive when he left him in the hospital, but he left him because he knew he and Rick wouldn't make it out of there together (not with Rick in that condition)

    Yes I do because he blocked the door when he left him.

    I am inclined to go with option 3, they couldnt make it out together so he left him. Then he went and got Lori and Carl to safety.

    I am somewhere between options 2 and 3. I think he knew there was a chance that Rick was alive but he also knew that him and Rick wouldn't make it out together. Even if Rick had woke up at that very moment he would not have been of any help to Shane and they both would have died.

    Yes that's true. I think it's the second option because I feel like he protected from walkers who were there

    "It was a long time coming...you know it's true."--Shane (to Lori)
    Lori's response: uncomfortable, awkward, emotion-filled silence
    I tried so hard not to comment about Shane...I get a bit Shane-ified! Lol

    She was feeling him. Like I said previously she only chose Rick because of obligation (Carl/Marriage) and guilt.

    Oh wow, I seemed to have blocked that out. I don't need to dislike either more than I do but it just happened.

    And let me go even way on out...I say it was Shane, brash, live-in-the-moment, raw, all appetites satisfied and none controlled, Shane, who held back, didn't get/go for what she was willing to give him pre-turn 'cause he loved Rick...was not willing to risk that relationship--was probably the best relationship, best thing, period, in his life.

    I'm wondering if Rick caught onto their pre-ZA attraction. I mean it didn't take long for him to figure out they had been together. Shane was awful curious about Lori and Rick in the squad car. What a hot mess.

    Interesting. He probably noticed it but didn't think too much of it because they were close and he trusted them both.

    I know, right!?! I wish, I wish, I wish I knew how the three of them got along before the turn. It used to consume me at times! I was becoming a candidate for therapy, haha. That must have been a mess and a half! I mean, Rick and Lori...and Shane. Dear God in Heaven!! Can you imagine?

    Lori did mention that Shane was outdoing Rick by fixing their sink.

    Shane is my weakness. I say the one I hate to love...I can't help it. I just get him, you know? I love Rick, no one can take his place, he is the hero. But, I understand Shane. I get on his case, then, the next minute I'm defending him! I am a Shane enabler...unapologetically. God knows, he was a wild one, but Shane was Rick's friend. I was happy for all kinds of reasons when Rick told Michonne about some of that situation, at least in relation to Judith. But, he said: "I had a friend...". Didn't say " a guy I knew", "or a friend of Lori's", or "this guy I worked with"...could still say "a friend"...I was crying...he was brave enough to say his name and acknowledge their friendship. Because Rick loved Shane and Shane loved Rick. See, I can't help it.
