    The Fat Zombie Didn't Eat Lori

    Did it? I mean, yeah, the guy had a big belly, but there wasn't a big pile of long bones, a skull, etc. around him. Where did the rest of Lori go? Conservation of mass and all, he couldn't eat all of lori without having a lori sized stomach.

    YES; ofcourse that Fat Walker Ate Lori's body. He was so full he could barely move. Listen this isn't the real world, when a walker has a chance to feed it will eat all it can eat, bones and all. The Bone Marrow has the most protein of any part of the Human Anatomy so Yes the Zombie ate Lori all up. That was what is so Ironic about the 3 Graves dug, there is no Lori to bury. That whole 3 graves is bothering me, No carol and only a Half eaten T-Dawg. You should read the Comics, it would not ruin your TV show experience at all, it will only enhance the TV Show. But that's just my opinion.

    ^^Cpmfirmed by Director Greg Nicoterro on Talking Dead. "The walker dragged Lori's body around the corner and devoured her."

    the zombies aren't *digesting* what they eat, so the proteins are irrelavent. they are dead. Their internal organs aren't doing anything. Their heart isn't beating to take any nutrition around. They are dead.

    They just eat because that's what their zombified state tells them to do. I can see him eating a lot of Lori's flesh, but the bones? Zombies don't have super powers, he wouldn't get through her long bones any better than you or I would - not at all.

    I think you are wrong about the Digesting, in several episodes even recently at Woodbury the Guvnor and Wilton talked about the Zombies eating and needing sustenance/flesh or they would get skinny just like Michonne's Boyfriend and Boyfriend's best friend... oops I said too much...hehehe

    After watching the Talking Dead, the director did pretty much confirmed it. He said the zombie had dragged her body and went to town. After getting bloated it just propped itself up against the wall where Rick found it. Even stated that yes, that was her hair hanging out of his mouth. He also said that it was the bullet Carl used to kill Lori with. I guess Andrew Lincoln carried around the bullet prop from that scene everyday after that scene in his pocket, thinking that is what Rick would have done.

    I can't recall if we've seen a walker drag someone away takeout style so far?

    It's odd, they usually just eat on the spot..

    Isn't it possible that the producers/writers/director just chose not to show Lori's dead body because it wasn't necessary? They already SHOWED us her stomach getting ripped open and now they showed a lot of blood and gross bits and things with a fat zombie in the corner that Rick is super aggressive almost intimate in taking out. I think this should be enough to convince the audience "She's dead and been eaten!" Rick figured this out, why can;t we?

    Why go through the time to create a mangled Lori body for one shot? That would be overkill.. Sure, TWD is graphic, but that moment was not and did not need to be one of those graphic moments. (especially since Rick was about to go prison stab crazy on a the walker who ate her). It was much more important to devote that screen time on RICK! To observe his reactions and emotions while searching this room and putting the pieces together. He was acting like a real police officer in there. I could see him looking at this "crime scene" and figuring out how it went down.

    I feel like when the writers drafted this scene, they probably discussed

    "What is the appropriate amount of "dead Lori body parts" we should show the audience to prove indefinitely that Lori is DEAD and EATEN so we can shift away from

    "WHERE IS LORI'S BODY?"

    to

    "WHERE IS RICK'S MIND?!?!?!"
