I guess Clem has a dark side too

  • It's possible that the message Lee and Kenny heard was the first time that guy had been within range to transmit to Clem's walkie talkie. Given all the static and fade, it wasn't a solid signal. Maybe he had only been able to listen to her "talking" to her parents up until that point.

    Hey! I'm actually quite comfortable with that theory! Much better than the assumption that a pedo bear was waiting on the other end.:P

  • On all other accounts, she has proven to be pretty smart, so I don't think that's the issue here. I think it is just a child holding on to whatever hope she has that her parents are alive, overriding all reason.

  • @Dead_Man_Walking said: Children have the tendency, especially if separated from their parents, to attached themselves to an authority figure until they're reunited with their parents. I've actually considered that as an ending. Her parents are alive and she departs with them, leaving Lee all alone... again.

    I've actually considered this as an ending as well. That perhaps at least Clem's mom is alive still and if they find her and get to a boat, that there is room enough for everyone....but one. DUN DUN DUN. and to save everyone Lee can choose to stay behind and has to watch as Clem and her mom sail off into the sunset as zombies come to eat him up.

    lol i've given this a fair amount of thought i guess.

  • Or maybe...

    Clem's mom doesn't want you around Clem and says you and them will part ways as soon as everyone find a boat and reach a safe place, and then at one moment a walker grabs Diana and you can save her, having to say goodbye to Clem forever later on, since she stays with her mom, or you can let things happen too fast as they usually do and keep Clem, since you're the better choice to be her guardian.

    Remember, no happy endings without overwhelming guilt of killing a little girl's mom \o/

  • replay ep3 first 'chapter' clem is talking on her walkie just before she shows lee the stickers on it..

  • But Clem's been pretending to talk to her parents all along.

  • If you had any chance to recouperate a crucial bit of life before, you'd definately take teh chance!

  • @Dead_Man_Walking said: It's actually kind of funny how many people think Lee and Clemmy have this tight knit bond that'll bring them through the apocalypse unscathed. I've never actually looked at Clemmy to have that sort of bond with Lee.

    At the moment, Lee is her caretaker, if anything. Of course they're going to have a bond. She's probably scared out of her gourde. Children have the tendency, especially if separated from their parents, to attached themselves to an authority figure until they're reunited with their parents. I've actually considered that as an ending. Her parents are alive and she departs with them, leaving Lee all alone... again.

    Hopefully that's not the case, but I've always wondered why she wasn't a little more rebellious in some circumstances. With her wanting to find her parents, no matter what Lee says, I found that to be a proper response. Now we just have this asshat on the radio, effin' with us. :D

    I think there is a bond but like you said a care taker not a parent, in my playthrough Lee said I know Im not your dad speech in ep1 and in ep 2 Clem says he'll make a great daddy given the right prompts.

    It was in ep3 that I saw I was just a care taker when after making all the moral choices, on the train during planning Clem askes "can i tell my parents" mabe about Lees past, so I said no thinking it may be better coming from Lee then an eight year old.

    She then said "you carn't tell me what to do", oh really Clem but you listen to radio guy saying not to tell Lee and to leave him so she can go to him, a guy she may/maynot have even met before. She only went there once!

    Rant over - I'm better now roll on Ep4
