So, I just re-played Episode 1, sided with Larry during the Duck Debate and Kenny went all crazy on me. Could only be calmed down by Katjaa, his wife. Larry, during the Debate, showed a hugely less dislike towards me than compared with how much of an asshole he is when I side with Kenny. I get him the pills. I say that he is a good man. I'm nice to his daughter.
And yet, at the end, he is the one who chooses to try to kill me. And Kenny is, for some reason, rescuing the guy who thought that killing his son would be a good idea just half an hour ago.
Who else thinks that it would be sweet to side with and befriend Larry? Even if just for one episode, his unfortunate demise considered... Sure, he knows that I'm a murderer and wants to protect his daughter, but I think that, after being nice to both him and his daughter, he should be able to consider not killing me. Could have carried over perfectly into Episode 2, with Larry not being a concern to the writers anymore after that, making it less complicated.
Or, now that I think of it, Kenny might have just thought of Clementine, letting me live for the sake of not devastating her. So that's another perspective.
