Character Bio

Lori Grimes ~ "You're gonna be fine. You are going to beat this world, I know you will. You are smart, and you are strong, and you are so brave, and I love you. You gotta do what's right, baby. You promise me you will always do what's right. It's so easy to do the wrong thing in this world. So... so if it feels wrong don't do it, alright? If it feels easy don't do it, don't let the world spoil you. You're so good. My sweet boy. Best thing I ever did... I love you! I love you. My sweet, sweet boy, I love you! Goodwnight, love".

Lori Grimes married her husband, Rick, at a young age. The two of them eventually had a son named Carl. They lived as a typical suburban family in King County, Georgia. On Sundays, she made pancakes, despite the fact that she knew they were awful. Lori was a stay-at-home mother, while Rick was the main financial provider by working for the local Sheriff's department. Over time, their marriage became increasingly strained with Rick distancing himself from her. His unwillingness to talk about his feelings and their problems resulted in fights, where harsh words were spoken by Lori. It had even reached the point where she began to question his love for her and Carl. Lori confided in a friend (and fellow housewife), Paula, to ease the stress and seek advice.

Days before the apocalypse breaks out, Lori finds out through Shane about Rick's injury, and shares the sad news with Carl. As the apocalypse breaks out, Shane convinces Lori and Carl that Rick is dead, and she and her son pack their things and leave with Shane to head to a safe zone in Atlanta. Shane, Lori, and Carl get caught in a traffic jam on the way and befriend Carol and her family. While stopped outside the city, Lori and Shane watch in horror as Atlanta is bombed by napalm helicopters. As time progresses, Lori becomes extremely vulnerable and, believing Rick to be dead, begins a sexual relationship with Shane.

It is mentioned by herself in, "18 Miles Out" when she tries to convince Beth to not commit suicide, that she attempted to contact her mother for weeks during the beginning of the apocalypse to no avail.

Lori is a strong, generous, independent, and emotional woman, but is also shown to be difficult and demanding at times. Having believed her husband to be dead and that the world was coming to an end, and trying her best to keep herself and Carl safe, Lori became extremely vulnerable and lonely. During this time she began a relationship with Shane, something that would cause her difficulty throughout the remainder of her life. With Rick's eventual return, she found herself with both extreme happiness and extreme guilt. She becomes torn between her husband and Shane; realizing they were both essential to her survival.

However, her actions put Rick and Shane at odds, significantly more so with the revealing of her pregnancy. Throughout season two, she strives to ensure that her unborn child will be healthy, and wonders whether the baby should even be born into such a horrible world. After the farm is overrun, she becomes deeply disturbed by Rick's actions, as well as Carl's involvement in the death of Shane. As the third season began, Rick starts to shun her, something that pains her increasingly. However, Rick is devastated when he discovers that she died during childbirth.
