It could make sense for Rick to be immune. What if Shane was right and Rick was in fact dead in the hospital and then came back to life or “reanimated”. Rick probably has no clue because how could he know if he died in the hospital. Considering how long he was in the hospital (24hrs or more) without food, water etc. He may have something in his DNA that is different. It would make sense as others have posted Carl would be immune, when Carl was shot Rick told Hershel they had the same blood type they could also share immunity to the virus. Shane was very adamant about believing Rick to be dead, some could say he (Shane) just wanted to have a clear conscious, but when it showed them in the hospitalI believed that Shane believed Rick was dead.
If Rick did reanimate, I think that would put a new spin on Lori's pregnancy. Can a reanimated person reproduce? If not, the baby has to be Shane's.
A reanimated Rick, or similar situation, also opens up new questions/issues in relation to a Christian afterlife and the dead rising.
