The Governor and the legions of undead roaming the Earth aren't the only concerns on Rick Grimes' mind. When "Walking Dead" picks up its third season this October, there's another big obstacle on Rick's path: his wife.
Actor Andrew Lincoln spoke with Entertainment Weekly about the damage done to Rick and Lori's marriage at the end of the AMC zombie drama's second season. In killing his old pal and Lori's former flame Shane, Rick may have inadvertently destroyed any chance at happiness with his wife.
"I'm not saying that it's irrevocable, their relationship, but it's pretty close to that," Lincoln said. "Every time they see one another, they're reminded of the shame."
Lincoln and co-star Sarah Wayne Callies were so devoted to selling the dissolution of Rick and Lori's marriage that they made the conscious decision to not even look at each other while on the "Walking Dead" set for the earliest episodes of season three.
"We made a choice as actors, certainly for the first few episodes, not to make eye contact," said Lincoln. "It was an interesting choice because every time that we looked at each other, it burned."
