A thought on Kenny...

posted by Sir Fruitcakes on - last edited - Viewed by 835 users

Who here other than me thinks the only thing that's going to keep Kenny going for these two episodes is getting Clementine first and foremost safely on a boat? of course assuming he doesn't die?

Kenny's agenda now that his (Spoiler) family is dead (Spoiler) is a big question mark, hes made it obvious he still wants to find the boat, okay, we get that, but him saying that imply there's something in this group he still feels willing to protect, that being Lee/Clementine, and he even went so far as to drop all his grudges and prejudices against you, I am hoping I am right because if protecting Lee and Clementine is his self-made goal then he's not going to leave us to die anymore.

Any other thoughts on this?

Oh and alcohol will help him cope too, it does that.

These forums sure are quiet right now, might be because people are playing EP4 at this instant, maybe I should hop off the forums for the day...

  • @Walking Dead Rocks said: yeah I agree 100%. I just want Ben to atone from his previous mistakes, I understand that he is a teenager and he might not think before he does something or he might just be frightened. I do understand that and I do think that was why he made the decisions that he has made. Don't get me wrong I want Ben around because we need all the help we can get, I just hope he starts owning up to his mistakes and learn from them. Ben seems like a good guy he just needs to grow a pair haha

    Cheers to hoping he steps up.

  • Yeah if Kenny finds out it's either gonna send him further down the bottle, or kill Ben in blind rage which he probably would regret later. They could easily have branching subplots for the last episode, like in 4 have a way for a character to die, or be saved instead of the usual die either way. It could be like the Doug/Carley choice but instead have it like Ben/Nobody, and if you saved him give him several lines in 5 mainly with Lee and Clem, or he's dead and you don't get to interact with him or get his opinion on what's going on. He doesn't need to be fully ingrained in the main plot in 5, just make him background like Doug/Carley were.

    EDIT: I just want to be able to actually save someone for once without it costing another's life.

    Save Carley, Lose Doug
    Irene cannot be saved
    Save Travis, dies anyway
    Save the Teacher, dies anyway
    Jolene cannot be saved
    Mark cannot be saved
    Larry cannot be saved
    Duck cannot be saved
    Katjaa cannot be saved
    Carley cannot be saved
    Lilly cannot stay

    and I'm assuming Omid cannot be saved.

    I know a lot of it has to do with advancing the story and it's just their time to go, but at lease give Lee a chance to save a life with no consequence for doing it before the season ends lol.

    They could integrate rescued characters into ep5 pretty easily, the problem they had with Carley was that it was carried through episodes, we're talking about one episode, not 4-5. they just have to kill them off in five and they'd be fine assuming lee/clem are in season 2 which i'd wager they aren't.

    I don't care how long 5 takes to release, I know it'll be sometime around december but it could go over it and I wouldn't care, I want a great ending to season 1, and the only way for a company to reach such a thing, is with time! My ideal ending would branch but end at the same place as everyone else--unless they don't intend to start with lee/clementine for season 2, inwhich case seperate endings would be ok with me.

    I hope you do have the option of telling Kenny though, could lead to some intense drama.

    I really want a chance to do something like that, too. maybe the ending for ep5 will be the same but the characters you end it with won't, that would be awesome.

  • Does anyone actually believe there is a boat? If there is then Kenny doesn't look too pleased to be getting near it.

    Theres nothing to say there isn't, yet, that could be them just trying to get to the dock where a boat could be.

    EDIT: assuming your not playing it this instant, inwhich case this thread is null and I should stop posting in it and go hibernate for the day.

  • Kenny only has Lee and Clementine for him, Ben is a recent arrival (a week?) and Chuck / Christa / Omid are unknowns which are tagging along because of circumstance.

    Whether he likes Lee or not, Kenny is probably going to mature into another character over these next coming episodes. Perhaps he'll come to terms with his guilt over the actions he's done (Shawn, Larry) for his family, maybe he'll stop blaming Lee for it if you didn't help him or he'll blame you for everything that's happened out of grief.

    I'd like to see the player being able to comfort Kenny, bro or not. In the ending of the series ending, I'd like to imagine Kenny surviving, Lee dying and Kenny being the only one to protect Clementine as everyone else is gone.

    Where did you find that :D? Or did you do it yourself?
