And, in typical Shane fashion, it was self-fulfilling; he brought his own destruction upon himself.

His remarks also completely destroyed any sympathy that might have been built up for him in the audience since Rick rescued him. Still, I don't think he's necessarily part of the Governor's group, either.

You have to make sure that you smash people's heads after they die of any cause, and anything that killed a bunch of people relatively quickly (like an outbreak of disease) would start a wave of zombie attacks all over again.
True. And, as you pointed out, what does this mean for the unborn generation? Might Lori try to abort her pregnancy if she fears giving birth to a zombie infant?
