He's gotten harder to reason with.

I know it's not just me and I really mean I KNOW IT'S NOT JUST ME!

Kenny understands the "new world" better then anyone and he's just trying to protect his family so he makes the hard choices.

You can see Duck in the next trailer starting to take notice of the actions of his Dad.

    It's all or nothing with Kenny. Kenny has a pretty black and white view of things-if you aren ot with him, you are AGAINST him. About the only thing that can make him reasonable is his wife and child.

    And I only have Episode 1, and I already noticed it. He's a guy that needs a lot of reinforcement-you are with or not with him. It's that simple for him.

  • He's more like Larry when we originally thought.

    In ep one, if you try to reason with Larry by asking "what if it was your daughter", he responds something like "never would've happened because she is in the military".

    Whereas in ep two, asking Kenny if he could do what he did to Katjaa or Duck he says almost the same thing.

    I used to think Kenny was going to be one of the characters that always took the moral high ground, but now I don't. I think it's just that we saw him as the victim in episode one and with the roles reversed in episode two he behaves just like Larry.

  • I played one play through where I agreed with him and always picked his side and then I did one where I didn't. Definitely going with the siding with him one. He is the biggest d*** ever if you don't!

  • I think rather than the emphasis on right vs. wrong, the game emphasizes people and relationships. People do things based on instincts and emotions first.

    With that in mind, Kenny has always hated Larry for trying to get rid of Duck. He probably thought Larry had such a bad heart attack, he was, at best, useless, and at worst, dead, which meant he was going to turn into walker. He wasn't going to wait for it to happen, and since he didn't like Larry, and Larry tried to kill his kid, to the hell with it. Plus, he was in a hurry, to save Katjaa and Duck. If Katjaa AND Duck were in there with him, Lee, Katjaa, AND Duck could have reasoned with him, and at least, Kenny wouldn't be in a hurry.

    Kenny is more honest, charitable, humble, and kind than Larry and Lilly, but he shares the traits of paranoia, arbitariness, and impatience.

    This isn't going to last chance he bumps heads with Lily, nor is it the last chance he bumps heads with Lee.

  • Im on lilly's good side. Im gonna kill kenny.

    Kenny isn't a bad person though.

  • Kenny is a Literal Fair Weather Friend

  • Kenny's become annoying. To me, he's getting to be more and more like Shane on the TV series. He's doing everything he can for those close to him, but he needs to think things through and discuss with the group rather than plough on ahead.

    Kenny lacks Shane's conviction, though. After what happened at Hershal's, he said that he panicked and reacted without thinking and was sorry. My Lee consoled him. After what happened at the St Johns' farm, he again said how he 'just' did what his instincts told him and that he might have done the wrong thing. In my eyes, he's being reckless and impulsive and he's helping noone. It's always down to (my) Lee to help his family out.

    If it comes down to helping Libby/Carley or saving him/Duck then I'll go for the ex-Air Force mechanic or the gal with the gun. Katyaa, as a vet, is as close to a medic as the group'll have for awhile, at least. She has her uses.

    I though Libby's judgement was clouded, but now I see that it's Kenny who's being otherwise. I was 100% with Kenny in Ep 1, but I totally agree with jangjangchang on his transformation.

  • Lee strikes me as a bigot coward. He could have easily put Duck down to help Shawn. He also made no attempt to help me at the Dairy farm when Danny had a shotgun in my face. The "Urban" comment was pretty racists to.
