The comics sound more like torture porn than entertainment.
^I don't know. Depending on how long the show continues, they're going to loose the baby one way or another and I can't see them killing her on-screen. It may well be a red herring though since this is more or less when the baby died in the comics and they might play with that expectations.
I didn't realize that the baby died in the comics. But I still think it's a red herring. Like Locutus
said, they would have played it differently. What may happen is that Rick will hear about her being found and saved by another group, and the story will become about him trying to find her. Or, twenty years from now, somebody will do Walking Dead: The Legend Continues
and she'll be the main character.
