I was glad when Shane was killed. Because all he did was add unnecessary drama and tension - the story became out HIM and was overly consuming. And it wasn't that interesting of a story. Man wants to kill leader because he wants leader's wife and child. OH YAWN
i liked/hated shane. I like the drama/ tension he brought to the group, his character, and how Bernthal portrayed him. But I hate him (in season 2) at the same time (mainly because he was the villain and we were suppose to hate him kind of like the gov.) he had to die and agree with it.
Just shows u what good writing and acting can do.
Heck Merle can bring the dynamics Shane had with the group.
Shane used to be my favourite character on the show until Rick killed him, I would of liked to see him kill Rick and take leadership over the group, to see how Shane would deal with Merle and The Governor
I agree that Shane added a lot to the series, and there was a lot that I liked about his character, but he was tripped up by the same thing that dooms so many men--he became obsssesd with a woman to the extent that nothing else mattered, and his judgement was totally destroyed. A good friend once told me that you should never allow anything or anyone into your life, that you can't put aside. In other words, always maintain balance in your life and don't allow yourself to be a slave to anyone or anything. Shane became a slave, and it destroyed him. Remove the Lori factor, and he might have been a great leader for the group, or, ideally, he could have effectively shared leadership with Rick.
I was glad when shane died but if he would have killed rick and went back and told them rick got killed and his story nobody would believe him mostly because before the gunshot would have happened daryl and glenn had already found randall dead
Shane was fun to watch they way Bernathal played him was amazing but i still didn't like his character if they would have dragged shane all the way into the prison he would been tomas in that situation and rick would well still be rick
