Remember that heart-wrenching scene in “The Walking Dead” Season 3 episode “Home” when Rick walks out of prison to encounter a ghost version of Lori in a white dress? Well, that scene was almost a whole lot more gruesome.
In a deleted version of that scene, which Entertainment Weekly exclusively posted, Rick ends up kissing Lori, only for him to look at her again and see her as a zombie. A single tear falls from her eye as he backs away in terror. Michonne watches from a distance as he yells, “Stop. Stop!”
This deleted scene definitely makes an impact, but we agree with the choice to keep the version without zombie Lori in the show. It’s more affective to show Rick constantly tortured by the vision of his dead wife without having to reveal her as a zombie, and also it’s better for the audience to remember Sarah Wayne Callies in all her (clean) glory.
Agree? Disagree? Sound off below on what you thought of the scene, which can be watched here. “The Walking Dead” returns to AMC with Season 4 on Oct. 13.
