[SPOILER] Why does he ask that?

Why does the friendly doctor ask you "I hope you did'n't come from the railroad, didn't you?" around the end of the episode

I did not replay the episode, maybe the answer is in another choice, but his question sounded weird... Why did he ask that? It did not seem relevant at this moment...

Edit :

My theory is that Vernon and his group, at the end of the episode, went out to the railroad to escape the city, using the train we used!

  • I thought Vernon was hoping that Lee didn't come from the rail-road; because if he did (which he did :P) then a horde of walkers would be attracted to the noise and enter the area.

  • I think it might have to do with the mob of zombies that appeared on the railroad tracks at the end of ep3...I've seen people talk about them on this board. This mob of zombies never stops walking in one direction no matter what, or something like that...I know there's a term for them, but since the game is the only familiarity I have with this series I'm not sure what it is.

    So when he refers to the railroad I assume he sees the zombies coming from that direction. I think it would also explain why he and his group split at the end of the episode, because he knew about the mob's behavior and wanted to get his people out ASAP.

    I thought that at first, but this is not that clear.

    He asks that around the end of the episode, a long time after they met, if I remember good.

    A lot of hours were spent scavenging around, and the bells did much more attraction than the train, which is supposed to be shut off since long. And if he had hear the train, he would not ask.

    Also, coming from the railroad does not mean he knows they had a working train (who could guess such a thing? The train was in wreckages. It is so highly unprobable you would not ask that).

    That's a much more interesting theory, a shame it is not explained more into details in the episode, that makes the question a bit out of context if that is so (like you have to figure it out from a TV show or comic why he could say that)

    Not really. You see the horde following the train at the end of episode 3. It only makes sense that after seeing that he skedaddled out of there with his group.

    After replaying this part, in the escape from Crawford, Vernon asks :

    Vernon: "You never came from the railroad, did you?"
    Lee: "Yes, why?"
    And then he says that obvious HINT:
    "Nevermind. I can see sewers from here".

    My theory is that Vernon and his group, at the end of the episode, went out to the railroad to escape the city, using the train we used! I am affraid previous explanations do not hold.

    And he does not say, "Nervermind, I can see sewers from here", but "Nervermind. I can see (...)". There is a dot, which means he does not want to you to know why he asked that, not that he was looking for another way (the railroad is not at Crawford where this sequence played anyway)

  • I thought in retrospect that it was pretty clear. My immediate thought when he asked was because of the zombie horde, and I think the horde you see at the end of the game confirms it.

  • I don't know... Perhaps they did escape in the train, there was already hell-a-lot of walkers in savannah, maybe they tought it was better to leave. Anyway, they had food for a really long while, and Vernon himself said the Morgue was hidden properly. I dont get why heading out of savannah would have been safer.

  • I bet my money on the horde.

    But I think it's rather strange that nobody besides him saw them. They went out of the same window after all.
