Many of you are texting me and messaging me on Facebook and Tumblr about Shane being an asshole in tonight’s episode. I guess I’m now known as the only guy that likes Shane. And is he still my favourite after tonight? Hell yes he is.
You’re all looking to it as Shane is a jerk for killing off a guy that was trying to make things right after shooting Carl. But look at it this way. This whole run wouldn’t have happened if Otis hadn’t of shot Carl. And Carl will die if they don’t get the supplies. If Shane and Otis would have continued at the pace they were going, Otis, Carl, and Shane would have died. Shane shot Otis to direct attention to the walkers towards Otis so he could get away with the supplies. It’s not something that’s glared upon as smart, but it’s damn intelligent thinking. You may not like Shane for doing this, but he’s the reason Carl’s alive right now. Otis isn’t big to the story, and they’ll definitely get over it. So will you.
Imagine how you would have felt if Otis, Shane, and Carl would have died because Shane did “the right thing” as you would call it. You wouldn’t be too happy either. So continue hating Shane, but he’s one brilliant guy. I guarantee the group goes to hell when he’s gone.
Well, I’ve never actually seen the show, and I’m interested in watching it, but I know nothing about it. Other than some time machine and a dumb looking guy that everyone on Tumblr thinks is attractive.
