The Videotapes make absolutely NO sense

So I thought, is this just an oversight or flawed logic on Telltales writers part?

On the first tape with Anna Dr. Logan explains why he records the appointment. He says that it's a regulation by Oberson to record all consultations.

Ok I get that part. Obviously Crawfords Leader was tough on everyone obeying the rules etc. and he wanted to also check on his medical personal/medical supplies etc. Makes perfect sense.

BUT: On Tape 3 (The Molly lockertape) why the hell did he start the recording AS he was closing his zipper infront of the camera, talking about how it was fun, but that he has to stop the arrangement to not get caught?

And then gives her medicine for Mollys sister for a last time.
Just doesn't make any sense.

  • Heres what I think.
    He recorded it since he wouldn't be able to get some anymore.
    The video starts at the zipping up because the guy had already finished watching it, but wasn't kind and didn't rewind.

    I assumed it was a sex tape. Old dude like that with a fine young girl like Molly, not surprising he'd want to capture and re-live the experience. Especially since their 'arrangement' was coming to an end. Also makes sense that he'd keep it in his locker, away from all the other tapes.

    Catching a glimpse of some freaky, post-apocalyptic infirmary sex would've been nice, but hey, what can you do? All of the tapes only show the material pertinent to the overall story. Unless all video cassette tapes in TWD universe are only 30 seconds long. :D

    I thought this too. Secret porn stash! c: (Like, if he just didn't want people to know of the tape's existence, he could have destroyed the tape.)

    Though, I don't know why he would keep the tape in his workplace. Odd man. :P

  • Sextape would have made sense... but still I think it doesn't make sense the way the tape started.
    There is only 1 explanation..
    He recorded the entire session.. Sex+the talk afterwards and it was never intended to be seen by Oberson. It was just his little sex film.

    This doesn't make sense however since a) Lee would have obviously watched the tape from the beginning and b) when you pay attention how the tape starts the doctor stands far away from Molly, directly infront of the camcorder facing the wall. If this was the middle of the video, why would he go there, face the wall, and inch away from the camcorder just to close his zipper?

    He might have a strange fetish that I kinda don't want to discuss.

  • I assume it was the classic case of accidentally hitting record when the camera is on and hitting it again when trying to turn it off

    so, he really meant to shut it off when he was zipping up, but actually turned it on : p

  • ^Now this makes sense. That's the only explanation.

  • I think it was like that maggot said, he was looking out for himself. He almost got caught during an inventory of the medicine. He probably made the video as proof that he ended the deal and could even give up Molly's sister, which he probably did later on, if later he did get caught.

    Or worse yet, he made the recording to betray Molly and collect some reward for finding and eliminating a potential risk to Crawford....Molly's sister. Isn't this how these totalitarian systems work?

    I'm here to confirm that Acadias got it spot on. The idea is that the tape had been watched before. Had Lee been tasteless enough to hit the rewind button, he would have seen a whole lot more.

    But who says my Lee isn't that tasteless? It should have been an option. A moment where you can discover your true Lee. Learn your char more... :p
