Luckily, baby Judith made it out OK, and survives as an adorable plot annoyance to this day. Come on, the writers of this show aren't monsters. But we can't say the same thing about the comic's author, Robert Kirkman. In the print version, Lori also dies, but none of that "new beginnings mixed with bitter ends" stuff -- she gets blasted with a shotgun while holding Judith in her arms. And unlike on TV, Rick gets a front-row seat:
In fairness, he was given a warning about wearing a poncho in the front rows.
So this is when Rick turns over Lori's body and sees that the baby is miraculously still alive, right? Nope! She's completely dead, though it's unclear if she died from the shot or from her mother's body falling on her. These are the important questions which we sincerely hope never get answered.
