Since I began reading this forum there has been numerous threads from people where character deaths were predetermined by previous episodes, such as having to decide whether to save Doug or to save Carlee. In both cases, neither survived.
So, I guess we can predict certain futures by altering the lives we might be able to fail in saving. I personally didn't do a single rewind or die until the scene with the stranger...
I had Clem choose the knife first round...I died. The next round, I had Clem use the alcohol bottle... I succeeded.
So, I was certain that Lee would not die at the hands of the stranger, and that possibly, the stranger would not be saved.
Sorry... no Easter Egg here.
