Just as I predicted...here I am, nearly forgot my user name, after the summer!

I just watched this episode again, and I think they both could have made it.
I agree. Watched it again today...I think both of them could have made it, Shane was just feeling defeated and felt like he needed a better chance. It would be easier to decide if you knew how far exactly the truck was from where they were. But I would think the thought of being eaten alive would be enough to help both of them find a new gear. The only time I would have shot Otis is if he literally could not go on and was going to be eaten alive. And then I would have shot him in the head.
Through the rest of the season, I kept thinking they were going to run into a half-eaten Otis. That would've been morbid!
