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

    I have.I'm very exited and a bit worried,I really hope she'll be a Lilly I can recognize. Sadly it will,very likely, be the last part of Lilly's story we'll get to experience(maybe she'll appear in the TV show).

    I'd hoped Lilly would return in a future season of the game but the answer I got from Jake isn't at all promising :(

  • so is it just irrational people you sympathise with? because maybe i can now see why you are Lilly's #1 fan :)

  • Personally, I feel that Lilly's story has come to an end. She is a major lead in an awesome game, gets her own book, and appears in the comic. The only thing I can see is a confirmation of her death or survival right after the prison. I feel that after that, her story would be pretty well told. Just like Lee's, Clem's, and Kenny's should end with season 1 (in my opinion). I think that what we have is already fantastic, and bringing her back would be taking a chance of messing it up.

  • @YamiRaziel said: What answer? :)

    He answered that it's pretty unlikely we'll ever see Lilly again but he also hoped she'd be alright :)

    I also read an interview with him and he said he disliked Kenny and liked to go against him. He might be a closeted Lilly appreciator :D

    You're hilarious.

    Ah, I see. Remind me who was Jake? Some of the creators of the story? :) Can you provide a link to the interview?

    Mm, I can agree to some extent. She doesn't need some major role but I would love to see her again after the prison arc. I would be cool to see how those events affected her and how much has she changed since that. Especially if the book shows how she changes after ep.3.
    If we follow your logic, then Rick should die soon, too. He's been around for too long and most of his story is told. In my opinion that doesn't mean he has to necessarily die. Lilly has potential in her mostly because she's not a perfect character and there is a lot one can tell about people like her.

    Kirkman satted that Rick very well MAY die eventually, to keep it believeable, because Rick has survived more crap thrown at him than any person has a right to. He's a badass that way. And I don't mean Lilly has to die at the prison, we could just find out what happened to her. Live or die, her story should come to an end after the prison. She could go on to help rebuild Woodbury, or strike out for someplace new in hopes of finding something better.

    Check the The Walking Dead's faces of death,Part 3 thread for a link to the interview I mentioned :)

  • Funny how the thread after this one is the "Fuck Lily" one.
