[SPOILER] In the forest with Duck:

posted by Fluffyburrito on - last edited - Viewed by 1.6K users

Why do you guys think Katja shot herself? I personally think she wasn't happy with what her husband had turned into. Kenny's personality shifted from being pretty nice in Episode 1 to "I'll do whatever is necessary, good or bad, to protect my family" in Episode 2 and 3. (Kind of ironic how that never helped him in the end.) I think she was emotionally exhausted and Duck was the only "normal" thing she had left in the world.

Side note:

When Kenny and Katja are going to go say goodbye to Duck and Kat kills herself, how did she get the gun?

I repeated several times, "I'll do it guys. No parent should have to live through that." They then walk away to say goodbye to Duck, and then you follow them to find out that Katja shot herself.

What's weird is Kenny says "She couldn't do it!" or something like that, as if the game thought I said that she should shoot him. AFAIK Katja never had a gun before. (She's supposedly "against them" and would have used one by now if she had one, I'd think.)

So either she hid one somewhere or, for whatever reason, she asked Kenny for one.

    Also, Katjaa got the gun cuz everyone was sposed to carry guns because the bandits could come at any moment. It's a dialogue you can pick.

    I thought, when they were talking about weapons, it was implied that they were needed. I don't recall anything about Kat actually carrying one. The one on the couch could have been Kenny's. Look at the Walker that fell on them and the events of the raid. Kat didn't fire off a single shot, whether to protect the group or her son. :/

    As someone else already mentioned...I think Kenny killed her. I think he has finally snapped but not yet gone off the deep end. I think hes fighting to control his sanity, but hes fighting a losing battle. Its the whole thing in the beginning of the episode where Katjaa talks about hating the guns around the motel that throws me for this wild conclusion and I just feel that the way Kenny handled the whole situation with Duck getting bitten and how he ignored it I feel like the next 2 episodes somethings gonna give and hes gonna lose his sh!t.

  • On the bright side, if the "Kenny killed Kat" thing turns out to be true, at least Lee and Kenny have common ground now. :D I smell, "Drinking buddy!" :P

  • In my play-through, I told Kenny that he should do it the first time, and Katjaa walked into the woods alone with Duck. Then we heard a gunshot and assumed Duck was taken care of. When we went to check it out, we found she had killed herself. ;-;

  • @Master of Aeons said: It's pretty interesting that she's against guns, then shoots herself.

    It's an effective tool.

    Super effective, if you ask me. :D

    Katjaa says she doesn't enjoy carrying them around and isn't used to it yet, and Lee can say "We have to, but it's good you don't feel comfortable."

    I've wondered if part of the reason she was uncomfortable around guns was because she knew there was a risk of turning one on herself, even before Duck was bitten. Suicide is usually not a spur-of-the-moment decision. The Duck incident may have sealed the deal, but I'd be surprised if the idea hadn't been in the back of her mind for a while.

    Or maybe Duck shot her.

    Yeah, but technically that doesn't say she has one, or carries one at all times, or has at all. Heck, except when she offs herself, she never fires a single shot, to my recollection. >_>

  • Or maybe Katjaa doesn't like guns because she's from Belgium, with very strict gun control, who like me (living in Canada), didn't grow up with the American armed-to-the-teeth attitude.
