My interpretation of Shane's "I thought you were dead" comment is " I boarded you into you're room as the hospital fell into chaos, I never got a chance to go back and look for you later because the place was overrun with zombies. Most likely you were dead".
Yeah, I think that's about it.

you can go several days without food or water
I probably could, but I haven't been critically wounded. And, apparently, it was actually several weeks. Plus, there was that business with Carl healing so quickly.

I know that he's not a "living zombie" in the books, but the show seems to be departing from the original story in many ways. Also, has the book given any explanation or details on the virus?

You mean like virtually every other character injured in a tv show or movie? Yep, that's conclusive evidence.

The onscreen timeline doesn't make sense at least to me.

A. Rick after being shot falls into a coma

B. Zombie Apocalypse occurs while he remains unconscious

C. Hospital over run by Zombie's Shane abandons Rick and packs up Carl and Lori and they leave town

D. Helicopters are seen bombing the city of Atlanta [which by the way shows no evidence of mass destruction later]


E. Shane, Carl and Lori hook up with Dale et al and camp out near small liake

F. Presumably many, many days pass and Rick wakes up from a coma and discovers hospital is over run and heads up searching for them.

OK, based on this here are my questions where the onscreen timeline falls apart:

So Lori hooks up with Shane just a few days after Rick is thought to be dead and they begin a sexual relationship?

While Rick is connected to an iv in the hospital It's my understanding that the human body can only go 3 possibly 4 days without water but onscreen we're at least lead to believe its a much longer time?

It's unclear what amount of time passes between after Rick wakes up and he reaches Atlanta by horse?
I had that same thinking, because the body definitely can not go without fluids for more than a 3-4 days and they definitely implied it was longer. But even if it was say a week or even 2.......like you said, what was Lori doing already having sex with Shane?? Even if she thought Rick was dead, must have been some kind of love to just jump ship and shack up with Shane. Floosy......have not liked her through any of the seasons.

No, it's not conclusive evidence, but considering the severity of the wound and the impromptu surgery by a veterinarian, it does seem notable. I can't think of any other examples of such severe wounds healing so quickly and completely.

Lori also slept with Shane in the comics, but from the way it was portrayed, it happened only one time on the road, and she was extremely depressed and despondent and and wasn't in her right mind. It never happened again, but it was enough for Shane to believe that she was his woman now.

I could understand what happened with comic Lori, but yea, TV Lori just comes across as a manipulative bitch, using what she has to assure she has a protector.

Randall (the guy whose leg was impaled that they voted to execute) was hobbled that episode, and Daryl even used the wound to torture him, but as soon as the next episode doesn't seem to be suffering any lingering effects when Rick and Shane have their all-out throwdown. Which wasn't as serious as Carl's injuries but it was still pretty rapid.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

Not too clear on the exact timeline myself, but wasn't Rick on a drip? They should have kept him hydrated for a least a while. Not long mind, but enough I think to allow him to last about a week on his own. IIRC you can go a *long* time between meals and live, but three days is about as long as you can go without water.

Actually, come to think of it, aren't coma patients supposed to be put on nutritional IV as well as just fluid replacement?

Of course Rick spent the whole time in bed, not moving and thus not burning many calories. So even assuming he used up his IV bags, while he would have been pretty weak and thirsty when he awoke, I think it's within the realms of possibility.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

This past episode really threw me when Adrea said she had been with Michonne for 7 to 8 months? So is Lori actually 9 months pregnant now? How much time passed since she screwed Shane then Rick, went tot he CDC, spent time on the farm and then parted from Andrea when the walkers overran it?

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

About seven months. They conveniently skipped winter (and the need for the show to film during that season) and advanced the pregnancy to the point where the group is seriously worried about what will happen. Lori is actually late, going by dialogue. Also conveniently, six months somewhat covers Carl's onset of puberty. He's visibly taller and his voice is changed from the previous season.

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

Seems like the Woodbury episode is a little further along in time than where we left the prison. Dialogue with Rick and the others made it sound like it had been maybe 4-5 months since they left the farm, so Lori wasn't far enough along yet.

Probably some time will have passed when we see the prison again. I'm guessing we'll see that they've settled down, begun farming, and are relaxing a bit. (I think they're taking a lesson from the farm and skipping over all the slow-moving stuff this time.) That also means the two plots will be in sync again — and Lori will be just about at term if she isn't late.

Yea, I predict Lori will be delivering on the show at the same time as the Woodbury pregnancy

I don't think you're correct about the 4-5 months, though, Lori was pretty much ready to give birth when we last saw the Prison

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

I dunno-- she could have looked like that any time after seven months. Anyway, previews suggest something major is going to disrupt their lives at the prison, and that doesn't work well (in the dramatic sense) if they only just got there. No emotional investment in the place.

Oh, sure, she could look like that 7 months along, but, there's also the "panicked urgency" to find a place for her to deliver. If she was still 2 months away from delivery, it wouldn't have been presented as so urgent, I don't believe. The first couple episodes gave the impression they were just about expecting her to deliver any minute

Re: The Walking Dead Season 3

Well, we should know the answer when we see if they have some significant crops, or if Hershel is decently healed up yet.
