It's a real pity because I was hoping that both Lori and the baby would die.
Kids and babies present real problems plot-wise and are fairly annoying to boot. Just think how badly Carl sunk the show in the first two seasons, and now we have a freaking baby. Now everything's going to be about the baby, who by the way will be so great to have around when the zombies are attracted to noise.
Bad call. I actually suspected that the writers would have had Lori have a miscarriage or something, but instead they went with actually having the baby. Sigh.
