In the latest episode of “The Talking Dead” which aired Feb. 17, 2013, the creator of “The Walking Dead” Robert Kirkman, talked about Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and what viewers believe is Lori's ghost.
Kirkman sets the record straight by telling “Talking Dead” host Chris Hardwick Lori Grimes is now a vision for Rick and not a ghost.
Kirkman explained: "She's not a ghost. She's a vision of someone, coming from a happier time. She's a piece of his memory reminding him to do things. His psyche makes her look as good as possible.”
While Hershel and Glenn both think Rick has lost it, it appears Kirkman thinks otherwise.
As the survivors deal with their losses along the way, Kirkman alludes to the idea that Rick's mind is actually trying to prepare him for the battle ahead with The Governor.
Now that The Governor and his men have set off a “zombie bomb” upon the prison, it's only a matter of time before Rick and his people fight back.
In a “Talking Dead” poll, the audience was asked whether Rick Grimes and his fellow survivors should take a stand at the prison or take the fight to Woodbury.
The results showed 55% of those who responded to the poll feel they should take a stand at the prison while 45% feel Rick, Glenn, and the rest of the crew should take the fight to Woodbury.
What do you think of Rick's visions? Do you think Lori is a ghost? Or is she really just a vision trying to get him motivated to move on and figure out what they need to do to survive both the walkers and The Governor's men?
