With Shane's death, I'm only assuming that Rick will finally become a healthy father figure that Shane previously was filling. How come the crew at The Walking Dead made Rick and his son have minimal interaction? I don't think Rick has told him he's loved him on screen yet? It seems he only cares if his son is in serious trouble. Other than that, he passes the buck to Shane. He doesn't even seem to have any love interest in his wife. Rick is a great character, but if his Father and Husband roles can be elaborated on, I think his character could greatly increase interest.

Thoughts?

I've never thought Rick was anything less than a loving father...

Agreed. Plus, a lot of it can be presumed to be done off screen. It's not like viewers want to watch father/son love all episode long...

But why have Shane step up and be a father figure, other than the Protaganist, and the actual father?

Shane was more like an uncle or a friend. They showed this close relationship between Shane and Carl, so we can fully understand the impact that his death will have on Carl - especially, since he shot zed Shane, himself.

Shane was a close family friend, and an important role model to Carl. I think it would have been FAR more petty of him to try to force Carl to choose sides, and limit his time with his "Uncle". Carl idolized Shane, and as long as Rick help hope they could be allies, he was going to let him play a role in his son's life.
