For the upcoming second season of The Walking Dead, the series will feature a flashback to the time before zombies descended upon the Earth.
The flashback will be to the time while Rick was in a coma and Lori and Shane thought he was dead. It may detail the early stages of their relationship, reports TV Guide.
“It was fun to step out of the zombie world and show Lori with a BlackBerry,” said actress Sarah Wayne Callies, who plays Lori in the show.
“The scene underscores how deeply Lori and Shane love [her son] Carl, plus I hope it will finally put to bed the ridiculous rumors that an affair was going on before [Lori’s husband and Shane’s friend] Rick ‘died’.”
Creator Robert Kirkman is also considering releasing a The Walking Dead volume zero graphic novel that will fill in the blanks between Rick’s coma and the zombie apocalypse.
