Affecting Clementine

posted by Death689God on - last edited - Viewed by 1K users

Due to Clem-Clem echoing what you say in Hershel's Barn in the St. Johns' Barn, it's becoming clear that the choices you make with her matter. As such, I'd like to know how others are raising her compared to me.

I try to be honest and direct with her, reasoning instead of pandering, and I'm making my choices in the mindset of making her a survivor... As Lee, you've basically become her adoptive parent, and I believe a parents job is to prepare their child for the world. And preparing a child for this world means making some tough calls, most of them I've been willing to make.
But I'm never Cold, I told her I'd find her hat and I make sure she stays fed and I fixed the swing just for her. But still, I eliminated outside threats like Jolene and the Saint Johns, I stole from the car, I tried to save Larry since he was one of our own, etc, etc, etc.

  • @Marleysativa said: Where are you guys getting this whole redemption thing from? I've seen several posters mention it but I've never seen it mentioned in the story. The only time Lee ever comments on it is when he's deciding whether or not to tell the group that he's a convicted murderer.

    On topic: Clementine seems similar to Carl from the comics. She does seem somewhat more mature and seems to be more compassionate though. I can definitely see her going survivor mode similar to how Carl has. While Clem is definitely going to be interesting as she grows, I'm more curious about how Duck will learn to cope (if he even gets the chance).

    I'm not sure what's up with the Sophia hate. She's seen some terrible things (especially after issue 100) but she's been a great character. She was short-lived in the T.V. series though.

    I had a soft spot for Sophia... then again, I'm typically really protective of females, so. Men are definitely an expendable gender as far as I'm concerned. Ont hat note, I hope Duck gets the Chomp. :D

  • Lee doesn't need redemption for the senator what happened was


    Lee found out his wife was having an affair with a senator so one evening while Lees wife was having dinner with the senator Lee was watching from outside when the power was cut and an man broke into the house to try and kill the senator and Lee went to rescue the senator and his wife he grabbed a fire poker and hit the attacker in the head but then the lights came on and the security guards rushed in to see Lee standing over the dead senator with a bloody poker and seeing as how lee's wife never saw the actual attacker so...


    it was an accident

    Dude... what? It's too bad I wasn't wearing a helmet, you just blew my mind.

    If you ever get to read the comics, you'll really feel bad for her. She had it much worse in them. After seeing what happens to the other children in the group, you may even change your opinion about Duck.

    Part of what makes TWD such a fun series is the character development. The kids in the series add a lot to the story. Watching what happens with Carl and the twins is just insane.

  • I hope Lee doesn't die until I find out why he killed that senator. That said, I don't think TTG will pull the plug on the protagonist - that would be annoying as hell because I've invested so much time in knowing him, making choices for him etc etc.

    Besides, I think Lee and Clem's fate will be intertwined. I just hope there will be a space in the story board for Carly too - they make an awesome team. :D

  • the redemption thing is

    lee is considered by 'larry' and the like to be bad news/evil because of the murder rap.

    the events are unknown capn is speculating he has a habit for doing that ;)

    so by logic,

    lee will find the path to forgiveness and a new outlook on life and a positive footnote in his life story to out shine the senators demise by 'his hand'

    via saving/protecting clem and the group from uncertain doom

    nessa it's been made clear 'to me at least' lee's wife was having a relationship/affair with the senator and for some reason lee killed him over it, the only real clue is hearing his wife say' i love you' then a scream followed by smashing of glass, this happens in ep 1 in the barn when lee tries to sleep.

    Exactly!! I love the comic's story sooooo much better than the show, and I like the show a LOT!!

    If that makes sense??

    I enjoy the dynamic between Lee and Clem too. I've just learned not to get attached to a character because of the comics. Kirkman can be a bastard to fan favorites. :(

    I agree with you about Carley. She's a total bad ass. Saves your life twice within 30 minutes of meeting her. She gives you the benefit of the doubt concerning your past as well. It really was TTG's fault that not many saved Doug. It was a no-brainer when it came to that decision, haha.

    It absolutely makes sense. I'm in the same boat. :D

  • I'm going through a new playthrough and am trying to be even MORE brutal and pragmatic... She'll definitely live through that playthrough, though whether or not she'll die inside is another matter.

  • I’ve tried to raise Clem in a bubble of innocence because she’s a smart kid who will slowly work things out on her own without me saying “Look this is a dead person” chop, “This is a bad man” slice.

    That plan may have been ruined the moment she saw what Kenny did in the meat locker and I’d like to see how the relationship between the two plays out now after seeing her reaction to Lee if he kills a person, I think she’ll be wary of Kenny.

    I really want to make Kenny pay for Clementine witnessing Larrys murder by Kenny. I mean i'm not saying i'd kill him but i would punch him.
