Different Ending Idea for Ep 5

posted by Danger: Wildman on - last edited - Viewed by 360 users

Hey Guys-

I'm new to the forum, so bear with me :). I just had to join in after playing TWD and reading all the awesome commentary.

I wanted to propose a ending for Ep. 5 that I have not seen anyone post yet:

I think that (despite how much I would love to believe otherwise :)) that Lee will indeed die from the bite he sustained at the end of Ep. 4, and more than likely he will shoot himself after saying his goodbyes to Clem. Here's the twist: Remember when Carley gave Lee the recorder in Ep. 2? I think that Lee has been "recording his thoughts" like Carly recommended and in the end he will either give the recorder to Clem or she will find it on him. The final scene will then be "What Remains" of Lee as you get a replay of the decisions you have made and his thoughts regarding them and the situations you have endured. The last recording will be his farwell message to Clem and him encouraging her to stay strong. Obviously this will be an emotional exchange, but it could also be a perfect precursor to the next season :).

Either that or Lee accesses a secret armory in Savannah somewhere and manages to acquisition numerous assault rifles and the final scene is everyone getting on the boat watching as Lee faces the Zombie hoard alone with "Escape" by TDWP playing in the background. The last cut scene is Lee turning to the goup and saying "For Clem!!!!" and charging the hoard in one final act of courage. \m/

Either way, it will kick ass :)

    I forgot about that recorder. The idea of him recording his thoughts makes sense i like this idea well the recording part.

  • Thanks guys. I just think it would be a cool way to wrap up the season. It would also be a cool opportunity for us to learn about the situation that surrounded the murder of the senator in detail and how the decisions that we made effected Lee throughout the game.

    Another quick note: it could be the "replacement" for Clem's walkie-talkie in season 2. I would love to hear your feedback / ideas.

  • Yeah there's barely any light on what happened's except it was a fight. I wanted to know what happened to his wife too

  • That's a great ending. I completely forgotten the tape, but there is a good chance that telltale have too. But with any luck they may well do something with that :) thanks for sharing your thoughts and ideas :) I like reading people's ideas and reading how it baths from person to person :)

  • This sounds awesome! But I think he might have lost it in the bandit attack :(

    The first part (with the recorder and all) sounds just awesome! Truely hope that will be included in the next episode :)
    However, I would facepalm if Lee said "For Clem!!!!". That would be too.....Narnia.

  • ^Lol

    I'd think it would be awesome if he went out by luring a huge herd towards him, then climb up on top of a gasoline truck, or some other highly explosive area and blow himself and the herd to hell, while clem and the others escape on the boat.

    Then they all sadly stare at the smoke plume left behind by Lee's finale badass sacrifice, with epic sad music going, similar to the music on TWD TV show when the farm is overrun and their all driving away staring back at it.

  • "FOR ASLAN--I MEAN CLEMIE-CLEM!"
    Lovin' the cam-corder idea. Don't really want be the guy that points out that unless TT actually made an ending similar to that, then apparently all our ideas or either wishful thinking or good guesses.
    In which case, he records stuff about his secret, undying love for Carley (plus what shit went down with that Senator). I only hope that they will be together in the end..............
    *cough*ILoveyouCarley*cough*

    P.S. Lee's wife is "probably up in Virginia" according to Lee when talking to Hersel. Nothin' much else, but she was a bitch anyway so who cares? She cheated on Lee, man!

  • Wasn't the recorder left at the motor inn? At the beginning of each episode when you gain control of Lee, you can see your inventory. The camcorder is not seen in episodes 3 or 4.
