With season 2 of the Walking Dead coming out so soon, there’s going to be a whole new batch of characters we’re going to love, hate, and sob over when they face an inevitably horrible death. So who did everyone start to have any kind of emotional attachment to in season 1, and when and why? Here’s my list.
Clem: the second she gave Lee the hammer
Kenny: when he saved Lee at the end of ep.1
Larry: “I got charm coming outta my ass.”
Lilly: when she told Lee not to judge her for standing by her dad
Doug: when he saved a hostage at gunpoint with a fucking laser pointer
Andy: when Lee told him his family is dead and he starts wailing
Katjaa: when she tells Kenny it’s not fair that he’s pissed at Lee for siding with Lilly
Duck: “And I can be Dick Grayson! ...Your ward.”
Chuck: when Lee told him that he’s creepy
Molly: when she called Kenny a grandpa :D
Christa: when she cuts Lee’s arms off while Kenny chickens out
Ben: when he stands up to Kenny
Omid: “You ruined that dude’s face.”
Lee: Since he was the player character, I didn’t really even notice that I’d gotten so attached to him until I knew he was going to die.:( I guess I really started to like Lee as a character when he gives Christa that dopey smile when she asks who would be into Civil War history.
