I finally decided to make an account after reading this forum for weeks, so apologies if I screw up anything. First time poster.
Reading the forums, I've seen many people theorizing about how they think Lee will die, I really don't think they would off him. Not yet anyway. So far we know Telltale is making a second season, which means bringing gamers back into the story. Think about it, a new protagonist and characters would be a bad call, remember guys you've all been introduced to this apocalypse already. A new protagonist means either starting this character in the situation, meaning changing his personality as the story is going would be wrong as this guy/gal would already have been 'defined' in a sense. Friendships and rivalry's have already been established meaning less character development. And if they want to start again from the beginning of the apocalypse then it would be a bit annoying because everything has already been set up. Clementine would be an interesting idea for a protagonist, yet we've been shaping her thus far so my guess would be that we could see all our raising pay off in Episode 4, 5 and season 2. It would kind of lessen our decisions if we just make her choices for her.
