Your opinion of Kenny after Episode 3? [Spoilers]

Title says it all, what do you guys think?

After starting the chapter off being an inch away from a fist-fight at any given moment, I found myself feeling strangely close to Kenny by the end of Episode 3.

Back in Episode 1 we were best bros forever, bro. He totally lost me in Episode 2; the meat locker, chickening out of the fight with Danny, he and Katjaa constantly whining at me for the one time I didn't side with them back on Hershell's farm. Gah! It was over, and I found myself 100% in Camp Lilly going into Episode 3.

However, now it seems like all the horrific shit we've been through has bonded us once more. Losing Carley, Lilly, Katjaa and Duck, all in one day. It's a motherfucker. I talked Kenny into stopping the train and took it upon myself to put Duck out of his misery. It's hard to watch a guy lose his entire family in the space of a few hours and not feel deeply compassionate.

I just wonder how it's going to play out in Episode 4. Will Kenny become my greatest ally so far? Or is he just a ticking time-bomb?

  • Yeah like most I think I sided on Kenny on most things. Even the meat locker incident, because it was the logical choice. But after Duck got bit. I was like damn man. Wake up. You gotta deal with this son!....

    But yeah I felt a little distance after that tension mounted. Which ended with me picking the fist fight option on the train. He went a little crazy and kind fucked up our dynamic but he's still the only real ally my save's Lee (side's Clem, but she is an 8 year old girl after all) has at this point. Even if he's all mopey now..

  • He was there from the beginning, regardless of what he's done since then. After going through hell with my Lee, we're pretty much best friends. Felt like he was a dick at the start of EP3, and even though I disagreed with him about the car last episode and the girl at the start of 3, he still saved me in the pharmacy. I'll be sticking by him through the next two episodes.

  • If Kenny dies I figure it would either be in a sacrifice for the group or just giving up, giving up on running away from the walkers or similiar. He does not have anything left to live for anymore other than himself and he doesn't seem to value his life very highly at the end of episode 3. I still have hopes for him to survive but the only one remaining on the list of must lives are Clem.

    No one I'd kill at the moment with Lilly and Larry gone. Ben can have one second chance.

  • I'm loyal to Kenny, I've sided with him most of the times except for saving Duck at Hershel's farm. Now that he's lost everything I'm sympathetic to so I'm gonna keep trying to be his ally with just about everyone else gone. Though, I really hope that if the writers do try to kill Ben/Kenny then they make it a choice between Kenny and Ben, seeing the different responses will be great.

  • I think eventually. It's going to boil down to that. Ben was responsible for the raid. A raid which got Duck bit. Which directly destroyed his entire family.

    I think Kenny is somehow going to find out about that. And we'll have to make a decision.

  • @Arsun97 said: Have sticked with Kenny right from the start, and will continue to do (hopefully). Great guy that just lost his family...

    And you have a Shawn avatar. The irony.

  • @marcu5 said: validated my beliefs that he was a self douche from the start. i don't know if it's possible but i really wish i could have called him out on his hypocrisy. kill all immediate threats when it's not your family - play it soft and loose when it is your family.

    Totally. He was the worst thing to happen to this group. I've learned my lesson though. Never ever take a family with you during a zombie apocalypse.
    He has been plaguing this group since the minute we met and if he find out Ben's responsible for the raid he will f*** what's remain of it as well.
    He's a ticking bomb. I can't see him sacrifice for the group at all. He never cared for the group why would he start now. I don't think it sits well with his demeanor.
    I see him more as the guy would bring hell on the group with some super life-threatening act while saying "There's no point in living Lee, we can't win, we will die eventually, better do it this way than being eaten by walkers. Do the right think and don't let this girl suffer. There's no hope"

    I mad 2 games , one siding with Kenny and the other siding with Lily but i've been more into the Kenny side , i've always been fond of Kenny ever since i met the guy at Hershell's farm , Episode 2 he went of the bend a bit but i still sided with him (although i was never big on episode 2 , i think it was the worst one so far) in 3 i backed him up the whole way when it came down to the scene where you either fight him or talk to him i choked him until he realized reality but we got back on good terms ,
    Well Kenny has been confirmed for episode 4 and 5 so he'll be with you well her should be throughout the entire episode 4 but TT has ways of doing unexpected things, Kenny could drift away seeing how he is depressed or him and Lee could bond closer i think it depends on how you choose to make the decisions , IMO i think Kenny will either make it through the series or he will die or leave near the end of episode 5 , i like the character and i hope he makes it too the end ,

  • Really didnt like him after episode 2 and I was at odds with him throughout most of this episode. Still, I feel for his loss and was there for him because it was the right thing to do. Pretty sure we're still at odds and will certainly clash again in ep 4 but for now Kenny isnt Lee's biggest problem.

    Still gotta say Kenny is almost destined to die in my story. Cant trust that guy for shit.

  • I sided with him in 1, got mad at him in 2 after he left me to die twice, and then the beginning of 3 at the pharmacy... but then Lilly goes nuts and he loses his family. Now the only people left are Lee, Kenny, Clem, Ben, and Chuck. You're gonna need Kenny now.
