  1. The gradual change is largely attributed to the death of Sophia Peletier, whom he shot after she had turned into a walker in ” Pretty Much Dead Already “. These characteristics become more prominent in ” Nebraska “, and again in ” 18 Miles Out “. Robert Kirkman felt that “Nebraska” demonstrated that Rick Grimes was not delirious, as Shane accused him of being. The end of this episode proves to Rick that that’s not the case. This entire season has been leading up to the moment where he shot those two men. Shane has been beating it into his head that he isn’t fit for this world and needs to be a harder man and be able to make the hard decisions. Over the last two episodes, we’ve seen Rick be the one that has to step up and shoot Sophia when no one else can. We’ve seen him in the blink of an eye take out two guys who are a clear threat to him and everyone else that’s with him. This is really the beginning of Rick emerging as a clear leader and answering that thing that Shane’s been saying all this time.
