“It was surprising and disheartening, in Lori’s case especially. I feel like the infidelity turned a lot of people against her from very early on, so whatever she did from that point on was suspect and made people dislike her. As writers, we felt that the infidelity was fairly justified. It was the end of the world, she thought Rick had died, Shane lied to her a little bit and let her believe that more than she should have. I always viewed her as more of a victim than anything else in that situation. It’s odd sometimes to see how the audience perceives certain things. It’s something we’re certainly trying to be mindful of more in the writers’ room, how female characters interact with male characters, and what the potential for the audience is to misinterpret things the female characters are doing. It’s a pretty big danger in television writing. You look at Skyler in Breaking Bad and you think, No, guys. She was the one who was right. I understand that the show is trying to get you behind Walt, but it’s not supposed to get you so behind him that you hate everyone who disagrees with him.” — Robert Kirkman, ‘Does it surprise you how vilified Lori and Andrea were? Is that something you’re mindful of as you write for and create new female characters?’ [x] (via the-walking-dead-amc)

"There’s a part in all of us that’s scared and not sure. And when you get the ability to see that in yourself, you start to see that everyone is fighting, every day, and just like Finn said. So instead of saying "you’re fat and you’re ugly", I’m going to say “you’re the person who helped your mom out, who saved your best mate, who lives with an illness but keeps going on”. Me…I did all of that.”
