Seeing as we still don't really know much about the 400 days survivors and there's lots of speculation about how they will play a part in season 2, I figured why not get everyone's thoughts about each character and how long you think they will last. Feel free to throw in analysis and head-canons here.
Vince - I could quite easily see him becoming the leader type. He already seems to have taken on that role when Tavia approaches. I imagine he'll survive quite far into the game.
Wyatt - I'm really not sure what to make of him at this point. I felt his story was more Eddies than Wyatt's. (See below) Dunno how long he'll last.
Rusell - He's another one I'm unsure about. The guy has serious trust issues so I definitely see disagreements in his future. Those trust issues could be both a good and a bad thing though. It is quite possible by being so overly cautious, it will backfire on him and cost him his life.
Bonnie - We know she's a former drug addict but she seems to be coping rather well and was able to defend herself in the cornfield which will come in handy. If any medicine goes missing I have a feeling she'll be first to be (wrongly) accused - most likely by Becca and/or Russell but despite that I think she'll surprise everyone and survive longer than the others. (Vince being the only possible exception.)
Shel - I'm not really a fan of Shel. I get that she's trying to protect her little sister, but her and her story just kinda bored me more than the others. She'll probably last a while but I imagine she will get into spats with others most likely about Becca.
Which NPCs would you like to see return?
For me the biggest NPC character I want to see return is Eddie! We may have been playing Wyatt's story but I personally felt Wyatt was more of a sidekick and we actually learnt more about Eddie. He's the one that shot Nate's friend, he's the reason Nate is chasing them and he's also the one that hits the cop.
However as a really curious person, I'd love to know what happened to the other NPCs too. (This goes for S1 characters such as Lily and Molly too.)
I left Nate, Leland came with me as Bonnie,
I played my save as if it was me in their shoes. Keeping everyone alive unless there was no other option. The only bits I changed where replaying Vince's story to shoot Danny (who I originally saved as he seemed more trustworthy) so Vince would come to camp with everyone else, and replaying Shels story to shoot the introder so Boyd would still be alive.
