^Pretty much this. I'm glad she didn't die by the teeth of the zombie horde, still upset that we couldn't bury her and instead she's just zombie food.
I don't think that shot should have been an instant kill, but I hope it was. Don't like the idea of leaving her out there alive, she's as good as dead if thats the case! Either through bleeding out or through zombies who would be attracted to the smell.
