Yup, this is it. Post your long and short, detailed or general, random or specific thoughts about "Around every Corner" right here.

No spoiler tags necessary, PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU'VE PLAYED THE EPISODE!!!


AND I'll add an open poll to this thread for you to rate the episode on a scale from one to ten. It's not a substitute for a constructive review... it's just because I like polls.

Please ignore the results if Gary Whitta votes a 10. :D

edit: I created the poll as an open poll so you could see who voted which number... but it seems like Jake had different plans. So now Gary can vote and you wouldn't even know. ;)

    Lee can only be saved by amputation and even that would have been left to late by now and that doesn't always work any way. The infection from the bite has to be caught in time like it was for Rick and Dale in the comics or it will spread as it did for Morgan and Allen. Hopefully Christa will take over as care taker for Clementine and Lee can part from Clementine on good terms. She was upset with Lee when I last played because I told her we didn't have time to look for her parents. The last time he saw her she had her back to him and was crying because of what he said.

    Me too. I think I'm gonna replay the last chapter and lie to her so at least she is happy.

  • Likewise. The episode was good but wasn't my favourite. I didn't like the fact that we never got another opportunity to ask Clem about the conversations she had with the man on the radio after her first explanation was interrupted and I didn't like the fact that no one mentioned Chuck or asked if i'd seen him. I didn't even get an option to tell the group I found Chuck dead on my way to meeting the doctor when introducing the doctor to Christa.

    I think chuck was written off as dead by almost anyone who played episode 4 he was left surrounded on the street by walkers and I am at least surprised to see he made it into the sewers. I liked Chuck he was like the realist of the group and knew of his and everyones eventual demise and didn't candy coat his thoughts and and advice to anyone. But yes some interaction with the group of his demise would have been nice I agree

  • @JesseC25 said: Who went with you into the next episode?

    I had Christa/Omid. I wish I could have Kenny too, I want to have as many people as I can because Lee is going to turn. I was pro-Lilly until she killed Carley, and I cussed Kenny every chance I got. After that I only took Kenny's side when I actually agreed with him. I let Ben go because I thought that would bring Kenny around again but obviously it didn't.

    I CAN'T WAIT FOR EPISODE 5!! It's obvious the ending will be tragic though...


    I took Christa, Omid and gave Ben a last chance to prove himself and make up for his mistakes. When I chose to save him I had forgotten about the conversations I had with him in ep3 and that he was responsible for Carley's death. I'm gonna definitely let go of his hand on my next play through and let him die.

    Kenny is by himself now with the boat that Clementine found and is referring to the boat as his. I hope his boat sinks or he drifts to a place like dead island.

  • Maybe Kenny will make a cameo on Dead Island 2 when it comes out...:D

  • Really?
    Lee got bit, and Clementine is kidnapped?!

  • Very glad to see that people seem to like this episode! Maybe now I can finally get a good night's sleep :)

  • @Natalie1213 said: The choices in this episode were pretty agonizing. I was lost between what to choose, which would be more morally correct, what would happen if I chose this or that, which would be better.
    I was so angry at Ben when he said that Katjaa and Duck's deaths were his fault twice and never mentioned Carley (Doug if he's on your playthrough). I'll hope for a Carley or Doug reference in Episode 5. I got extremely mad at Ben in lots of instances. I think this episode really did great at fueling your anger for Ben to make the big decision near the end all the more powerful.
    Honestly, this episode was fantastic. At first I didn't like the new girl, nor did I like her half way through the ep much, but by the end I thought she was pretty alright. I liked her, and liked the rest of the cast. This episode also made me like Christa a bit, and it's great that Omid stuck around and is better. I was so sad when I saw Chuck in the sewer though, my god. I knew he wasn't gonna make it. ):
    Being pro-Kenny, he's going with me along with Christa and Omid to save Clementine. I didn't have his back a few times though, and even those choices mattered as he told me that sometimes I didn't have his back! Amazing.
    I let Ben die because he's the reason Carley died, and I never felt any sympathy for him at all. However, when it came to the moment where I either saved him or let him die, I was actually shocked. I shocked myself, because I've always hated Ben SO much and always have gone about how much I wanted him to die in ep 4, and yet at that moment I panicked so much and didn't know whether I should let him stay or not. In the end though, I let him die. Because I'll always be upset about how my favorite character died because of him. But I made a separate copy in which I saved Ben just to see the differences, though he refused to go with me to save Clementine because I was always just the biggest ass to him, which is understandable.
    I started crying when Lee got bitten. I just couldn't believe it, and I love Lee so much as a character. He's my favorite protagonist out of all of the games that I have played, and it was so fast and sudden. Now I can see why episode 5 is named "No Time Left". ):
    My favorite episode is still episode 1, but episode 4 was really great! Even if the new TWD ep became your new favorite episode or not, no TWD episode disappoints!


    Did Kenny come with you because you helped him kill Larry? That seems to be the only decision in the game that can get you back in his good graces, where as with Lilly helping her with Larry makes her forgive you for every time you sided against her.

    When I played I sided with him over the first 2 episodes apart from 2 occaissions, when I said the group needs leadership and when I helped Lilly in the meat locker.

    Kenny is hard to please and in my view not worth the hassle. some of his choices are just brutal and bordering the Govornor's way of thinking. Like when he tells you not to put the girl out of her misery in ep 3 so her screams can draw out the other walkers. Even though I left her on one of my playthroughs it wasn't for that reason it was because I didn't think I could make the shot and didn't want to risk giving away our position.

    Kenny wanted to leave Lilly at the motor inn before she killed Carly and was generally selfish. When I told his wife about Lee's past she had a better attitude to it than Kenny. Kenny said Lee wouldn't get a lift on his boat because of his past despite Lee saving his wife and son countless times. What was funny was that he actually looked surprised when I told him to go fuck himself in episode 4. For a second I wondered if I misunderstood him and reacted rash based on his responding facial expression.
