Seriously? Stop trolling...
I don't read spoilers and I have not read the comic so it was a legitimate question.

Are people sticking up for Shane? I mean I like the character, but the dude was definitely in the wrong.
He tries to steal his best friend's wife & kid, tries to kill him. He kind of deserved it.
Also, Michonne is keeping the two zombies around to ward off other zombies (on top of another reason that they'll state in S3). Not exactly sure how that mechanism works though.

AMC’s The Walking Dead finale set a ratings record for the network, clocking a truly impressive 9 million viewers.
The second season closer was the show’s highest-rated episode ever (and AMC’s most-watched episode of regular series television ever). A full 6 million of those viewers were among adults 18-49, too, which is quite a trick to pull off. Walking Dead ranks as the top-rated show in cable history among the adult demo. (Watch, now AMC executives will think: “If we cut the budget again, the ratings will go up even higher!”)
I got to see last night’s episode at the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin where fans literally cheered Rick saving Herschel and the appearance of Michonne. For more, check out EW’s interview with writer-producer Robert Kirkman about the finale, and see our item about which actress is going to be under the hood to play a sword-wielding badass.

Another week, another jaw-dropping shocker on The Walking Dead. So stop reading right now if you have yet to watch Sunday’s episode of the zombie drama. [SPOILER ALERT! Seriously, stop reading now if you have not already watched Sunday’s episode of The Walking Dead.]
When you consider how the character fared in the comic book on which the show is based, Jon Bernthal actually had a pretty nice run as Shane Walsh. Shot to death by young Carl in issue #6 of the comic, Shane made it all the way to episode 18 of The Walking Dead series…only to again be shot by Carl. However, this time it was after Rick had already stabbed him to death and he had reincarnated as a zombie. (Yep, turns out that — like in the comic — you don’t have to get bitten to turn into a walker. Bummer!)
I spoke with Bernthal to get his thoughts on Shane’s shocking death (and subsequent reanimation and death again), spying in the woods on his castmates after it was all said and done, and whether he asked to be written off the show once executive producer Frank Darabont was fired. (Note: Scroll through two pages to read the entire interview.)
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: So after spending almost two seasons trying to take out zombies, how did it feel to switch sides and play for the other team, if only for a few seconds?
JON BERNTHAL: You know, man, it was crazy. I didn’t even realize that I was playing a zombie until I was playing it. There was a lot of discussion going back and forth, a lot of arguing going back and forth on what that last scene actually should be — between myself and Andy and the writers. And everybody kind of got their own little say in what that last scene actually was. But then at the very end I realized, now you gotta go play a zombie! I never even thought about that. Then all of a sudden I’ve got these contacts on, I can’t see anything, and I’m a zombie. And I’m like, “I don’t know how to do this! What do you do?”

There’s a whole part of the character that I think some people may or may not pick up on, but I think there’s a part of Shane himself that knows he is no longer fit to be among the people. He knows how much of a danger he is. He knows now he’s killed yet another human being, and I think a part of this is him really spurring and challenging and getting Rick to step up and encompass what Shane has and take Shane out. I think there’s a suicidal flavor. There’s a flavor there that’s really saying, “Come on, man, I’m challenging you to be the man that’s fit to raise the woman I love and the child I love and my child on the way. Come on and step up, raise your gun.” And there’s a part of him that so desperately wants Rick to be that man, and when Rick finally does it, there’s an element of some sort of relief.

If Rick wouldn't have killed Shane, he would have snapped and tried to kill him again. Maybe I'm just interpreting it wrong but I seen it as Rick thought it was the last straw and he had to kill Shane.
Rick gave Shane numerous opportunities to redeem himself at that point it was either Rick or Shane walking away. Not both. Rick did what he had to do..
