If you're watching the new season of The Walking Dead, then you witnessed the actions of Shane Walsh played by Jon Bernthal). AKA, Mr. Jackass as I like to call him. The funny thing about Shane is, I was actually starting to feel a little sorry for him. I mean, his best friend was supposedly dead (don't get me started on that episode - that was Jackass moment #1), he "saves" his BFF's family and later falls in lust / love with his BFF's wife.
When his BFF, Rick, returns from the un-dead, he is left to become the 3rd wheel and loses the possible zombie-apocalypse family future that was ahead of him. THEN, he goes and tries to force himself on his BFF's wife at the end of last season's episode. That was Jackass moment #2.
Then on last week's episode, he had a chance to truly redeem himself. He embarked on a trip with fellow survivor Otis (played by Pruitt Taylor Vince) to retrieve life saving medical equipment and supplies for Rick's son who was accidentally shot. It seems bleak for Shane and Otis as they are cornered by swarms of zombies. Is it the end for our heroes? No! Otis makes a beeline for one exit while Shane heads for another. Shane barely makes it and injures his foot. As he is stumbling through the never-ending (it seems) parking lot, all hope seems lost but guess who comes to his aid? Why his fellow survivor, Otis! Hooray!
Together, they are making their way back to their truck. At one point Shane just can't go any further (remember the ouchie that he got earlier?) but good old Otis urges him forward and away they go. Then, Jackass moment #3 is seen. Shane, the coward that he is shoots Otis in the leg, which pretty much secures his fate as Zombie chow.
While I do appreciate the fact that this episode was chock full of zombies, I am disgusted with Shane's actions. Really? You don't think you could have hobbled just a little bit more to the truck and then drove away? If this is what we can expect from Shane then I hope he leaves the group and drives far, far away. And I hope that Otis' family finds out what happens and hunts him down ...
Here's to next week!

There is such a plethora of Zombie movies and shows out there that my cohort and I have decided to gather our vast (ahem) knowledge of Zombie-ness in one nifty blog in the event that the Zombiepocolypse does occur, there were will be a chance that we and others will survive. While the likelihood that such a thing could happen is pretty slim to none, ya can't take that chance if ya know what I mean. In the meantime I suggest you gather your zombie supplies wisely ....
