Do you think Clementine's mother could still be alive?

I say "mother" rather than "parents" because it's implied that her father was infected.

What do you think?

Could lead to a rather awkward/interesting situation if they ever find her.

  • I tend to think that Clem's mother is dead. The answering machine messages did not sound good, at all. I just re-played Episode 1 to re-listen to them, also at the end of Episode 1 when Glenn is listening to the radio, you hear the announcer say Savannah Stage 9 catastrophe. If she really is alive, I'd be shocked.

    On a side note, isn't there somewhat of a short range on walkie talkies? So whomever she's been speaking with has been within range in order to communicate with her and Savannah, where her parents were, would be way too far away for walkie talkie communication.

  • When I first played ep 2 I thought Jolee could be clems mother. I don't know why it was just somthing she said. I almost shot her. Plus she did have clems hat.

    As for the guy on the radio, it is hard to beleive that the radio could reach a long distance. We know at the end of ep 3 that clem has been talking to this guy for a while. Could Chuck be in on this somehow? Or has Glenn turned to the dark side? He did leave with the other radio. Also what does this person want from clem or our group?

    I guess we will find out in a month (or two)

  • She better not be! Clemetine's mine!

  • Yes I think they are both Alive and We will see part of this in the next Episode

  • I really don't think she's still alive. But then, in The Walking Dead, I just kinda assume that nobody is still alive.

    I'm having trouble working out the radio thing, though. It isn't somebody in Savannah who has been talking to Clem all this time. First of all, the radio can't possibly reach that far. Secondly, the second radio was never in Savannah - it was with Glenn. What happened to it after that? Does anyone remember? If somebody really has been talking to Clem all this time, they've been doing it from close by.

  • I also think Diana, if she's still alive, could be in a very unstable state of mind and body, especially when one considers what Lee says to Clem in the trailer concerning the situtation in Savannah, that's it more dangerous than he thought. Also, I'm wondering if the stranger Clem's been talking with has anything to do with the some members of the group od bandits that killed (and probably raped) Jolene's daughter. She said that she had killed them all, but who knows, maybe it's an "associate" of theirs ?

    No, I think there's more than enough crazy to go around and the Savannah nut is an independent.

    If Clem's mom is alive, she's had to develop some survival skills and would no doubt want to know the fate of her daughter just as much as Clem wants to find them. In which case, she's not in Savannah.

    No it said Atlanta stage nine which makes him want to go there to help his friends

  • About the Walkie-talkie range, everyone keeps assuming Clem's been talking to this guy the whole three months+ but it is just as likely she's only been talking to him for a few days. It doesn't take long to earn a little kids trust especially if they think you have something they want, you save their life (look at Lee, should she have gone with him? Not really, she knew nothing about him.) or they think you know someone they already trust.

  • No, I think that they're dead. This story is way too bleak for them to be around.

    There is a very good chance, I think that Clem's parents (or just one) are encountered as walkers, and Clem's response is horror, then resolves to kill them and put them out of their misery.

    Personally, I would write it in that Clem's first walker kill is her mother and then her daddy.

    That would fit the bleakness of this story.
