I realise I'm half a year late with this, but what the heck.
I finished Episode 2 a few days ago and I have to say having done Episode 3 on Friday I am constantly impressed at how these just get better and better. Sadly, I already had the ending (at least what happens to Lee & Clem) spoilt for me by several rude people, but bar that I have no idea about the other characters and the path to get there.
Anyway, am I the only one who was let down by 'the reveal' at Episode 2? They spent so long forshadowing something was going down and I think all of us knew St. Johns was far too perfect before the bandits/walkers arrived. The whole "Tell 'em whatcha got planned!", Danny's clear... uhm... instability, the bloody barn, it just screamed "CANNIBALS!" the whole time and made the reveal sort of... "Really?"
I was expecting the twist to be that there was no twist. The bloody meat was from slaughtered animals or something. I agreed with Lily: get the food, get the hell out of there and if they're good people we can continue a trade. I personally expected Lee to open the barn, find nothing inside, Mark comes out all patched up, but because he went and messed with the generator the zombies begin to pour in and it gets abandoned or the bandits raid the place. Mark, Danny and their mother are obviously unimpressed and Lee/Kenny discuss whether or not to tell anybody about what they did.
Just my thoughts. The climax was excellent though.
