I don't know about you guys, but when we had the option to kill Danny, I actually took my time with this one. I was thinking, this guy was sick and disturbed and he should die for what he did to Mark, and if I left him he may be able to get free and go after Clem. AND if I left him he might die of blood-loss, turn into a dead and trap Clem and Lilly in the meat locker, so after this decision, i knew something would go wrong, but i decided to kill him. Of course, Clem screamed and she looked afraid.
Later on she says "Did you have to kill the brothers?" So obviously it doesn't matter if you don't kill Andy, but if you kill either one she thinks of you differently. I'm just wondering if she will be afraid of me next time I get a weapon in my hands or something, or if she will go to Lilly/Carley for protection instead of me..
That was very smart of TTG, and I applaud them for it!

    He was going to die any way, killing him directly is just taking out our anger. But if you think about it he wants you to kill him, telltale are provoking you to kill him that's why he is saying your don't have the guts to do it. You play into their hand by killing him because they no they are gonna drop the bomb shell afterwards that not only is Clementine watching but your actions scare her and make her less comfortable. The same with the Andy killing, Telltale in Andy's voice tell you to finish him off. Doing so puts them out of their misery. Andy's death in particular is quick. It's much worst for them to be left to the walkers. They have the fear of build up to their deaths and the walkers will eat them whilst they are alive so their deaths will be slower and they will suffer more.

  • @Bearcules said: Leave cannibals alive that can lure innocent people in with the promise of food and protection? It's unfortunate Clem saw it happen but without viable long-term incarceration justice will either be a slap on the wrist or something as severe as death.


    Danny would not have been able to walk, Andy would not have been able to move quickly if you beat him long enough so they would not have survived the walkers when their farm was over run it's not like you took them to safety, they were left to die slowly. It's Unnecessary blood on the hands of a character that's on the road to redemption.

    If I wanted someone dead I would rather have someone else kill them. Mafia bosses don't get their hands dirty they have hired henchman. Partly why Kenny is upset with Lee is because Lee left Kenny to kill Larry so the blood is on his hands so he feels guilty and like the bad guy.

    I think if he had molested Clementine that would be different, he would have to die at my hand but I would want his death to be as slow and painful as possible. The slowest way for the brothers to have died would have been for the walkers to eat them alive.

  • I killed him for the sole reason of torturing Andy.

    Dead Mom, Brother, Farm ruined, Walkers coming, and Andy is still alive.

    Overboard? I'm not sure...

  • @moicanorj said: If you not kill them so instead you are killing the people that they will kill in the future


    What people? The area was deserted. Lee's group were the first people they had seen in ages.

    There is no way they would have survived the walkers, Their defenses were down, the generator was out, Andy could barely walk and Danny couldn't walk at all. They were sitting ducks and would have been torn to shreds. You didn't need to see it to know it happened just like you didn't need to see the bandits rape and kill Joleen's daughter. Based on the principles of the walking dead it's implied and considered inevitable.

  • @ruairi46 said: Kill em all I say. Don't fuck with us. He was dead as soon as he grabbed clem at the dinner table.


    My instincts were to kill them myself as well but you can't help but think that your doing what they want, it's not as if they were begging you not to kill them. This was my same problem in GTA 4 when I finally found the guy Niko had come to America for. Because he was begging me to kill him I realised I was doing him a favour so I beat him up and left him alive with his guilt.

    If Danny and Andy begged me to spare them and to bring them to motor inn I would have wanted to kill them more but ultimately I would have wanted them to suffer. They suffer less when you kill them since their deaths are quick. If they are left to the walkers they will be left in agonising pain. I have never seen A walker kill a person quickly. Their victims are always left screaming and watching their own bodies being eaten, sometimes their guts and organs. If you think of Dale's death in the tv show Daryl shot him to end his suffering.

  • @thestalkinghead said: the thing about not killing Danny is that Clementine looks really disappointed when you don't kill him

    What? When I left him before she gave Lee a little smile, when I killed him she was scared and hide behind Lilly. Two completely different reactions.

    i think its when you decide to kill Larry but not kill Danny

    You left out the most important reason to kill the St. Johns. They were unrepentant murderers and cannibals who presumably would continue to torture (remember our legless friend?) and murder as long as they were alive. They had to be executed in order to save innocent lives, probably many, many innocent lives.

    I doubt in the "real" zombie apocalypse if you couldn't have had one of your group lead Clem an appropriate distance away before executing the St. Johns. The game took a thoroughly contrived approach to the situation (though it would not have been difficult to construct a scenario where you either must kill them in front of Clem, or they escape--another example of poor design by TTG) in order to create an unrealistic but controversial scenario.

    In any case, executing the St. Johns was a moral obligation. If that needed to be done in front of Clem, so be it. They could not be allowed to escape.

  • @Sisterofshane said: To be fair, you don't really know you are leaving them to the Walkers when you are presented with the options to kill them. It's only after you make the decision to walk away that the Generator shorts and the Walkers invade the farm.

    Like I said above, I really thought there was going to be a moment (after guaranteeing everyone's safety) where you could then choose what to do with the Family, but it didn't work out that way. Still, I'll sleep easier knowing that both of them ended up as Walker food.

    PREcisely.

    Jangjang wants to pretend it's all about anger because s/he wants to evade the tough choice involved in executing mass murderers in front of a child.
