[Warning: Do not read any further if you don’t want to know what goes on during the rest of season 2 of “The Walking Dead”]
Let’s hope that, if you’re a big fan of “The Walking Dead,” you didn’t happen to click over to AMC’s website yesterday. If you did, you would have been treated to a major spoiler about season 2, right in the description of a limited-edition Blu-ray set.
In the description for the season 2 set, of which EW managed to get a screenshot before the network pulled it down, the network mentions a bonus feature that would discuss “Shane’s last episode.” Considering the season is still going on and hotheaded Shane (Jon Bernthal) is still alive, that would seem to be a curious choice of words, no?
So now we know that Shane probably won’t make it out of season 2 alive. If you’ve followed the news about Bernthal being cast in Frank Darabont‘s “LA Noir” pilot, this can’t come as a big surprise, no matter how much “TWD” producers Glen Mazzara and Robert Kirkman tried to deflect those rumors. And if you’re a fan of the “TWD” comic series, you’re surprised that Shane has even made it this far.
But for the network to spoil things themselves is unusual. Knowing how big the audiences have been for “Dead,” we’re sure the network got more than a few nastygrams in their e-mail inboxes yesterday.
