  • He escaped through the sewers just like Lee.

    Lee had an climbing axe to use to leverage a manhole cover up. Kenny has nothing and couldn't even handle a few senior citizens, I doubt he is stronger then Lee who couldn't pick up a manhole cover by himself when he was in the very same situation.

  • I'm sorry, but I doubt he's alive. I want him to be alive, but, come on, Telltale was brave enough to even kill the player you PLAY as! I mean, if they can do that.. then.. Yeah. The hard truth will come. :( R.I.P Kenny. :(:(

  • @Brock Samson said: I personally think he should be undead. At the very least in the "saves Ben" play through. There is almost no way he should be able to survive that besides people simply demanding he survives. He was in a confined area with no weapons facing off dozens of walkers. No way he should be make it realistically.

    Lee was in a similar predicament in part 4, and he escaped through a manhole. Kenny could have done the same, or climbed up a fire escape, or broke through a window...there aren't a lot of possibilities, but they do exist.

    As for Vernon's group, I'm inclined to think they simply smacked Kenny behind the head with a pipe when he wasn't looking, and when he refused to go down, they gave him another smack to the face (hence the black eye).

    The only reason Lee gets the manhole cover off is because he uses Molly's climbing axe. If you try to pick it up without it Lee can't do it. I honestly don't think Kenny is stronger then Lee, or that he could easily pick up a manhole cover by himself. I don't think there is another fire escape besides the one Lee is next too especially since then one we were on before hand is what impales Ben. And we didn't hear any "broken window" sounds if you stay and wait. All you hear is groans and Kenny screaming "Get off of me!".

    I don't think so. Kenny knew exactly who had done it. He wouldn't have known that if he had simply been knocked out from behind like an episode of Scooby Doo. I think they simply kicked the crap out of Kenny. Which isn't to hard, the only fight Kenny can win when it comes to fisticuffs is against Lee... and that's only if you let him win. Everyone else kicks his ass when he fights them including the cancer surviving octogenarians.

  • so i am to assume that using a piece of metal from the railing to lift up a man hole cover is out side the realm of possibility then? sometime yes people die. then sometimes against all odds people live when they should have died. i think it would be interesting to see kenny survive against all odds just to live even a day longer. but thats just me.

    You'd be surprised at what a man can do when he's got adrenaline pumping through his body. Hell, Clem was able to drag Lee into the jewellery store in a street full of zombies, and we can only assume she pulled THAT off because of adrenaline alone! (Otherwise, Telltale has one hell of a plot hole on its hands...)

    Hre's what I think probably happened: Vernon greets Kenny up front.

    "Hi, Kenny. How have you been doing with the boat?"
    "What the hell are you doing here, Vernon?"
    "Well, I just wanted to see if you've made any progress."
    "There's no room for you people, if that's what you're gonna ask."
    "No, no, Kenny, that's fine. I just thought I'd see if...NOW, BOYD!"

    And POW, Boyd hits Kenny from behind with a shovel. Kenny falls to his knees, but doesn't black out.

    BOYD: Shit, Vernon, he's still awake!
    VERNON: Hit him again!
    BOYD I...I can't...
    VERNON: God damn it, Boyd! Give me that shovel!

    So Vernon finishes the job by giving Kenny a blow to the table, then drag his body into the shack.

  • @Zeruis said: Nothing. I hope that the walkers have eaten enough of him to not reanimate. It'd be nice if we just see down that alley or building and all we see is a hat next to some remains.

    He's my third favorite character under Lee and Clem, but I hope he never comes back, alive or dead. Who wants to see him as a walker? :( I felt his character arc was perfectly finished by episode 5.

    One of my favorite things in the first season was the relationship with him and Lee. Now that Lee and his family is gone, I see no reason for him to return. It'd just be blatant fanservice, in my opinion.

    My thoughts exactly.

  • I voted for alive, but I don't think he'll survive Season 2. I imagine us coming across him sometime early on, and we discover he's bitten. He asks us to spare a bullet for him, and one of the big choices is shooting him or letting him turn.

  • @TheGamingSquadMC said: Most people dont know kenny here, if you are good friends with him you learn a lot: he is strong, he became weaker from the shot but that in episiode 2. And omid says: Kenny is a beast, he survived, right? So probally he survived well im sure


    "Kenny was strong" Are you serious? Kenny was beaten up more than anybody in the walking dead universe and that was over the course of 13 weeks. He got his ass kicked by Larry and he wasn't sucker punched like Lee was since he hit Larry first in the scenario where Lee tells him to knock him out. (When Lee threatened Larry he backed down because he was "shook.") Then he gets his ass kicked by Lee on the train if you choose to fight him, assuming the player doesn't suck at the game. In fact he was easier for me to beat than Molly was. Speaking of which she made him look silly as well and she didn't sneak up on him like she did when she fought Lee. Then if being beaten by a girl isn't bad enough he gets beaten up by the "invalids" as he calls them if he stays to protect the boat even though he had a gun with bullets. Christa would have kicked his ass and he knew it that’s why he didn't push boundaries with her. So there you have it 4 altercations where Kenny is knocked on his ass at the mercy of those beating him. He would kick Ben's ass I give you that but the idea of him being resilient and tough enough to Tyreese his way out of the situations he was in would be ridiculous and I would lose respect for Telltale if they brought him back to please fans. That undermines everything they set out to achieve in season 1, the notion that anyone could die and no one was invincible in the walking dead universe. Bringing him back also makes season 1 less sad and emotional and that is coming from someone who hated the guy.
