I think they did a disservice to Lori by having Hope show up ok. It means she decided her son was a killer And did what she did to him based on circumstantial evidence, a short story, and a 5 year old getting angry enough to want to hit a kid over the head with a bowling ball. Made her less sympathetic than she was in the book.
I really didn’t enjoy this. I even skipped a few episodes straight to the last two and I don’t feel like I missed anything. Chris was pretty though. And Michelle did an amazing job.
