THIS POST CONTAINS BOTH COMIC SPOILERS, IF YOU HAVEN’T READ THE COMICS DO NOT READ THIS POST!
Interviewed at The Walking Dead issue #100 release party, Sarah Wayne Callies said that she thinks that Lori must die in Season 3, but before that she talked a little about Lori and Rick’s relationship and how Shane’s death affected their relationship.
“The bomb that went off between Rick and Lori in the final episode of the second season was not, ‘Oh my God, you told me to kill Shane, oh my God, you killed Shane’ — the bomb that went off was I wanted to kill Shane.”
Callies goes on to say that she felt that Lori “did everything she could to handle Shane; she didn’t tell Rick to kill him, she told him to watch his back and she was right — and the right man ended up winning that fight,” and that:
“Lori’s fear is that in killing Shane, Rick became Shane and that he’s turned into a man who’s not a humane, compassionate person but somebody who is now somewhat cold and bloodthirsty.”
Finally, Callies goes on to tell us that Frank Darabont and herself argued over Lori dying.
“[Former Walking Dead showrunner] Frank Darabont and I actually — before he was tragically and unfairly removed from the show — we used to argue about it. I argued that it was necessary to kill Lori and I feel very strongly that for all of the other deviations we may have from the comic book, killing Lori does something to Rick that is vital for the story and can’t be done any other way. I’ve said from the beginning, not only am I OK with Lori dying but I think she has to, I’ve played this character with an eye toward an end.”
This article not only contains an interview with Sarah Wayne Callies, also commenting on Rick and Lori’s relationship are Andrew Lincoln, Robert Kirkman, and Glen Mazzara and I would highly recommend reading The Hollywood Reporter article.
