"Shane does not make it through the season, essentially Lori puts into his head that if Rick wasn't around they would still be together. This makes Shane change AGAIN, (he had finally made peace and Lori [frick]ed him up again). Anyway he decides to kill Rick and lures him into the forest chasing after someone you will meet in Nebraska. Of course Rick isn't stupid he realizes nothing is adding up and tries to give Shane a chance to abandon his plans. Believe it or not Rick loves Shane like a brother, anyway he finally calls Shane on it and Shane basically tells him how Carl and Lori will get over his death. Shane has a gun pointed at Ricks face and seconds away from shooting, when Rick starts to negotiate his way out of it, all along pulling a knife out. Long story short he lunges at Shane and buries the knife in his chest."

If this report is true, it seems to lend credibility to the suggestion that Jon Bernthal may leave The Walking Dead to star in L.A. Noir, the TNT pilot from ousted The Walking Dead creator Frank Darabont. Of course, L.A. Noir hasn't started shooting yet, and there is no guarantee that TNT will pick up the pilot to series.

All we do know for certain is that The Walking Dead returns with Episode 2.08: Nebraska Sunday, February 12 at 9 PM ET. And hey, according to the timeline of the comic book, Shane died a long time ago. It makes sense. What do you think?
