Re: The Walking Dead Season 2 Discussion *Spoilers*

That's an interesting way to look at it. The word "truth" itself has a long history in which it carries two meanings: factual accuracy, the more common definition in our scientific age; and that which should be true, often in a spiritual sense. I think when people ask for the "truth" they are often asking for validation of something they believe should be "true" in the sense that it goes beyond facts, and that turns into "truth" being what you want to believe very quickly.

So maybe it does make sense for Lori to have reacted this way, having wanted to hear something else; and maybe, further, Lori has discovered what many peopele have discovered: that you can't see a person the same way when you know they've killed, especially if it was someone they knew rather than anonymous threats in an abandoned bar.
I want to be sedated.
