That's how much it blew my damn mind!
And I didn't mention the comics at all I'm simply remarking on the fact that I strongly believe Dale should still be alive and Shane shouldn't. I draw these conclusions based purely on my experiences watching the TV show and from no where else.
Edit: I'd also like to point out that the actor who played Dale was a good friend of Frank Darabont's and someone he personally brought onto the show. Could we be seeing a potential "cleaning of the house"? Can't help but think back to a few interviews where actors were commenting on how tense things were on set and even being told "You're on a zombie show and can die at any time."
I am not pleased in the slightest with Dale's death.
