Team Lily to the end (appreciation thread)

I guess I may be the only one here who would still support Lily if she shows up at some future point in time.
Why?
I appreciate her leadership skills, her selflessness (having to make all those little decisions is really difficult) and her reasoning. She tried to keep this group together, she did her very best but some other people...like Kenny always tried to have it their way, always consider what's only best for his family.
I think we all agree it was difficult giving the rations the first time in episode two. We got a glimpse of what she has to do every day. People hated us for those choices, so they hate her even more for having to do it every day. But there's no one else who would do it.

She was still pretty reasonable until Kenny murdered her father. People can complain that he saved them and all that crap... but you couldn't have known for sure and that's the truth. He overreacted and again being the selfish asshole he is, he did the easiest choice for him. Eliminate the enemy and undermine the leader's authority.

In episode 3 we see things haven't changed. Lily is still the only one to really tries to protect the group. Lee, of course, helps always and as much as he can, but others like Kenny... they didn't even feel bad for what they did in episode 2. Kenny ruined this group and yet he still wanted things to go his way. He kept pushing Lily without really doing anything for the group. He was determined to abandon all.
Carley... she didn't really do anything. She could've stepped in and helped Lily when she saw she was about to snap... but she didn't. The only thing she actually did was tease Lee, look cute, and avoid participation in almost every important discussion. The downfall in episode 3 is partially her fault as well.
When the bandits attacked the group it was again Lily that came to the rescue to a group that hated her. Kenny wouldn't swallow my disrespect for him and actually tried to get me killed too many times in this episode.
Ben... and Kenny really started a chain reaction. With both their stupidity combined they managed to indirectly kill Carley, Katjaa and Duck as well destroy the group from within.
Both cowards and both DUBM as a bag of hammers.
I would so love to see them gone in episode 4 & 5. I don't need stupid people in my group, people who know nothing about responsibility or humanity.


It was sad to see Lily snap but I guess there is a line as to where a person can take it. In the end of the day I'm sure she'll regret her choices and will eventually learn from them. She kills Lorry cause she believes they are threatening her group. When she sees how wrong she was she offs the Governor. That's a pretty redeeming deed in my book, one that clearly shows she actually develops.

I would certainly love to see more of her in future episodes/seasons.

So, am I the only one? :D Even if I am, I will still be defending this position to the end :P

  • This being the "Lily appreciation" thread I have to ask.... is anyone getting the book "The Walking Dead: The Road to Woodbury"? It's apparently all about Lily and how she ended up with the Governor's group. I wonder if the story of how she and her father started out with Lee's group will be in it and how the story will differ from the game if it is. I'm very excited for the book and hopefully more of a background for Lily. :D


    Edit: sorry if this has already been talked about, I skimmed the thread and didn't see anything.

  • I would consider Lilly to be a very well written character, wuth a great story arc, but that doesn't stop me from hating her guts for what she did.
    She's a murderer, and is too unstable to be a good leader.

    Some of us are definitely getting the book :) We will report as soon as it is released :)

  • I might get the book myself, if I can just bring myself to finish the first one.

  • I'm getting it, and I haven't even read the first one. lol

    Read it... it is a good read... if you're a fan of TWD it is definitely worth your time :)

    I agree with this. It was very good and slightly shocking. Cannot wait for lily's story though! I do hate her for straight up murdering an innocent person and/or trying to murder a young impressionable boy that made a mistake. But something that big will have impacted her and I wanna see how she got from Lee's group to where she ended up in the comic.

  • I'm going to be really, really disappointed if they've just shrugged off the canon of the game to make Lilly their 'own' character in 'The Road to Woodbury'.

  • I read the first one. I didnt care for it.

    Prepare to be disappointed then.

    On the Walking Dead castlist for this game under Lilly, the description used to have this line at the end:

    "Fate will one day cause Lilly to play a large part in the life of Rick Grimes"

    If you look now that line has been removed. Looks like Telltale know it won't tie up anymore. Thats not Telltales fault at all, its a real shame Kirkman decided to screw them over like that.
