    Was Lori Eaten by a Bloated Walker?

    Lori’s death was sad enough, but the showrunners had to make it dark. When Rick entered the boiler room, he followed a trail of blood which lead him to an extremely bloated walker. There was speculation that the walker dragged Lori’s body before indulging in its entirety. Few keen-eye viewers even noticed strands of Lori’s hair around the walker’s mouth. With no trace of Lori’s body, Rick killed the walker and stabbed it in its stomach to search for pieces of Lori’s corpse. Truly horrific and extremely disturbing! He didn’t allow himself to fully investigate since he was overcome with emotion. 

    In an interview with Daily Deed, Greg Nicotero, the special make-up effects supervisor, commented on Lori’s death saying, “The idea is supposed to be that the walker has sort of dragged her around the corner of that boiler room. There’s actually a blood trail that continues past the walker and goes around the corner. Some of the little touches we added were there were bits of hair in his mouth and hair in his hand when it reaches up toward Rick. And it was just one of those things that we really wanted to show that this thing had feasted on her, as horrible as it is“.
