The Fate of the St John Brothers

posted by Sir Craigius on - last edited - Viewed by 4.2K users

The official stats show that most people didnt kill both brothers, but doesnt indicate who killed one brother or who killed neither. Personally I spared both. I might have killed Danny, but I read a spoiler in advance and knew Clem would be watching, so no way I wanted her to see that. Not killing Andy was both an act of mercy (he was so pathetic kneeling broken on the ground like that) and as a way of seeing a much more epic conclusion to that scene.

So what about the rest of you? Kill both? Killed one, if so which one? Or spared both like me?

  • So many spared them! So many are so weak!

  • I killed the first, the second died before I could, and the second I left alive because I was being watched and because he was too pitiful to do anything. Then he got eaten by his mama.

    Now I ended up sparing them, but I honestly thought that there would have been time LATER for the group to decide what to do to them.

    With Danny in the barn, he was already trapped. Katjaa and Duck were still in danger. I figured "Guarantee everyone's safety, THEN come back."

    Brenda got bitten by Walker Mark, Katjaa was safe - we still had to find Duck.

    Andy was tough. In the end, though, he had lost everything. He WANTED to die. Everyone was watching, but I didn't see the need for vengeance in their faces - I saw a group of people who wanted nothing more than to leave. So I picked to leave, and would have dealt with the consequences of either/both of them returning later. Then the fence gave out, and a Walker army descended upon the farm. I'm pretty sure the St. John's are gone for good.

    Now, this goes in line with my rule that we don't kill ANYONE who is not a direct threat to my safety or the safety of my group. (Jolene was the ONLY exception to this rule, and it was because I was more interested in what she was going to say about Danny than anything else).

    Also, there is a little bit of poetic justice about leaving the brother's alive. Who would have thought that the very thing that they resorted to in the same of "survival" (cannibalism) is the very thing that led to their downfall. Danny is genuinely confused that you chose not to kill him. Andy was a man who had lost everything. They spend the last moments of their lives in this state.

  • On my Doug save I killed them both and on my Carly save I kept both alive just to see if there is a difference if I leave both alive or dead

  • @greenj2 said: All you merciful souls, let me get this straight;

    After losing two members of your group and narrowly escaping certain death at the hands of murderous cannibals, you choose to let them go. Men with intimate knowledge of your group, access to weapons and a serious score to settle... and you let them go. All because, wait for it, it's the "right" thing to do.

    ...

    Maybe you'll find some nice rapists and necrophiliacs to make friends with in episode 3! :D

    Seriously though, I'm glad to see other people taking different approaches to their playthroughs than I am. Though I still hope all you naive morality fetishists get bit in the ass big-time for decisions like this in future episodes. :)

    I hear you. I killed them both simply because the risk of letting them live outweighed the benfit of letting them live. That's how the criminal justice system works in my game.

  • all of the above, but it felt sooooo much better killing all three of them...well two, I let Mark have a little revenge too (He deserved it, poor guy):)

    In addition to the brothers and Brendas atrocities performed on our group, I had Negan on my mind:mad::mad::mad:

    Quoting this because it needs to be repeated. I couldn't have said it better myself man. As for the bolded part, if TTG has the balls to actually go that route, they'll earn a customer for life.

    This one won't come back - everyone's dead regardless of the choices. But I think it's a freebie situation. Every last one of the bandits are going to kill Lee the second he chooses the turn around option.

  • Clicked the wrong option, I killed Danny, not Andy.

  • I killed noone because Danny was more likely getting overrunned by zombies since they were like right next to the barn and Andy was devestated.. In shock.. I don't think he will be able to do anything knowing his family is dead/dying :) And I dont want Clem to witness them getting brutally murdered, How does Andy die if you kill him anyways?
