Was Lori Really Eaten By The Bloated Walker In Walking Dead?

Lori Grimes did pass away during delivering a baby in season 3 of The Walking Dead, however, what happened after her death was more upsetting. The character was played by Sarah Wayne Callies and has been one of the important players in the popular AMC series up to that time.

Lori lost her life as well as her little son was traumatized as he had to stop her transition into a walker. To make things much worse, it was implied that a walker located Lori and ate her lifeless corpse. Some of the viewers could not believe a zombie would take up a whole corpse, sparking a heated discussion about whether or not the bloated walker was to blame or not.

Lori was the wife of Rick Grimes and mother of the couple’s infant son, Carl. Rick was still in a coma at a local hospital when the apocalypse struck and his best friend and partner on the police force, Shane Walsh rescued Lori and Carl to safety.

However, before being reunited with Rick, the three ended up in a quarry with another bunch. Shane and Lori had a love connection at the time, but the latter sought to put an end to it owing to her husband’s homecoming. But she was pregnant with Shane’s kid and she promised Rick would be the sole genuine father of her children.

Lori was assumed to have been devoured by the walker, which was subsequently proven.

Even after the tension that had arisen following Shane’s death, Rick led the survivors to an abandoned jail. Lori was getting ready to deliver her baby at that time. In “Killer Within”, a dissatisfied inmate ended up bringing a swarm of walkers back into the jail, causing the gang to divide up into smaller groups. This would be the last time many of the survivors saw Lori alive before she was devoured by The Walking Dead season 3’s famed “bloated walker.”

Lori went into labor after being separated from Rick and the others in The Walking Dead season 3, prompting Maggie Greene (Lauren Cohan) and Carl to take her to a nearby boiler for refuge. Maggie valiantly aided in the C-section, but Lori died as a result of the labor.

Carl wept as he introduced his new baby sister to Rick after shooting his own mother to protect her from turning into a zombie. The following episode, “Say the Word,” had a terrified Rick go on a rampage around the jail before discovering an extremely swollen walker at the scene of Lori’s birth. Lori was assumed to have been devoured by the walker, which was subsequently proven.

Rick entered the boiler room and followed a blood trail that led him to a very obese walker. There was a rumor that the walker dragged Lori’s body before devouring it in its entirety. Some observers even observed Lori’s hair strands around the walker’s mouth.

“The idea is supposed to be that the walker has sort of dragged her around the corner of that boiler room.

Because there was no indication of Lori’s body, Rick killed the walker as he was searching for Lori’s remains. However, he was overtaken with emotion and did not allow himself to completely examine the body. Greg Nicotero, the special make-up effects supervisor as well as an executive producer and director of, verified that the walker did, in fact, consume Lori after she died. Nicotero discussed Lori’s death in The Walking Dead in an interview (via Daily Dead).

“The idea is supposed to be that the walker has sort of dragged her around the corner of that boiler room. There’s actually a blood trail that continues past the walker and goes around the corner. Some of the little touches we added was there was bits of hair in its mouth and hair in his hand when it reaches up towards Rick. And it was just one of those things that we really wanted to show that this thing had feasted on her, as horrible as it is.”
