Where are Clems Parents?

Hi,

please apologize, i´m not a native english speaker so it could be that i have missed something in the game.
I have one question:
At the end of Episode 3, there is the option to try to figure out with Clem where Clems parents could be.
And then, you two decided to look in the "Marsh Hotel".
But if i remember correctly, you (and so Lee) could hear in Ep.1 on the answer machine that Clems Mother has said that they are gone from the Hotel to the Hospital because Clems Father was bitten and get sick.

So...why looking at the Marsh Hotel and not at the Hospital?

Or have i missed some information?

  • Ffss... I think they are dead.

  • @Vainamoinen said: Investigating - finding out what happened to them. Maybe someone still knows, has seen the tragedy, there might be other clues, whatever. It's their last known location, the place to start. I am convinced that the storyline with Clem's parents will see some closure in episode 4. We WILL find out what happened to them, and that's the reason why Lee is taking her to the place.

    Their last known location was the hospital.

  • @Milosuperspesh said: because her dad is 'ill' and the hospital was overrun/busy then hotel is the next logical place to find them..as they could rest up after some basic treatment.

    So when Clem's mom said "they're not letting us leave" you think she was talking about the hotel?

  • Guaranteed first places to be overrun in a zombie apocalypse are hospitals. Assuming Clem's parents survived, they wouldn't still be there, certainly not three months after the fact.

  • @Red Panda said: So when Clem's mom said "they're not letting us leave" you think she was talking about the hotel?

    So, this is the question.

    Okay, on this side, i can understand now why Lee and Clem will look at the Marsh Hotel first.
    Perhaps Clems Mother gone back to grab some things for her husband.

  • Finding them alive is pretty slim, Mum maybe but Dad is most likely dead.
    I suspect even if Clem's mother is still alive the chances of finding her at the Marsh hotel is unlikely,it sounded as if they were trapped in the hospital.

    I really hope that at least Clem's mother is alive because that is her rightful place. A part of me is hoping this is true because I suspect we may even see that some players will resemble Jolene, by trying to take someone else's child and keeping them for themselves! I have just read an article on GameInformer and the female reporter wrote that she hopes that Clem's parents are dead so she can keep Clem?! justifying it by saying that Lee(a convicted killer) is better suited to care for Clem than her own family,a very selfish attitude if you ask me! Clementine would dump Lee ,in an instant,if that was the choice.

  • If her mother is still alive, Lee will bone her and become Clementine's father anyway.

  • @Chrizza said: If her mother is still alive, Lee will bone her and become Clementine's father anyway.

    Wishful thinking, especially when Clementine reveals Lee's past and if he has continued to kill. Any parent will be naturally wary and will need a good deal of convincing that a total stranger has treated their child PERFECTLY for the last three or four months.

    "He didn't touch you in a naughty place did he Clem?" sad but true.

    There must be a great ammount of gratitude involved. Omid mentioned how he hasn't seen a child in ages, so it's a pretty special thing to keep a child alive in these circumstances.

  • They may have been quarantined in the hospital on what was day two of the outbreak however as things got worse that system would break down and as visitors to Savaana they would most likely go back to the hotel (a place they know).

    Remember three months is a long time, so in any investigation you start with what you know,

    They were at the Marsh House Hotel, from the reception you could find out which room and grab a spare key.

    Inside the room could be a digital camara with view screen so they can see all the photos of where they went or one of the parents diary's?

    From this information they would plan their next move on which location to choose or a person to look out for.

    Also although implied Clem's farther was attacked by a crazy person, they didn't say bitten so it could have been a regular attacker (human) and maybe alive
