The Videotapes make absolutely NO sense

So I thought, is this just an oversight or flawed logic on Telltales writers part?

On the first tape with Anna Dr. Logan explains why he records the appointment. He says that it's a regulation by Oberson to record all consultations.

Ok I get that part. Obviously Crawfords Leader was tough on everyone obeying the rules etc. and he wanted to also check on his medical personal/medical supplies etc. Makes perfect sense.

BUT: On Tape 3 (The Molly lockertape) why the hell did he start the recording AS he was closing his zipper infront of the camera, talking about how it was fun, but that he has to stop the arrangement to not get caught?

And then gives her medicine for Mollys sister for a last time.
Just doesn't make any sense.

  • By the way, when the doctor got stabbed with a knife, why his first thought was: "I must immediately get this videotape and put it in my pocket"? What did he need it for?

  • Well before Nick I would had said that perhaps some "blowing in the wind" just happen, but after reading the answer from Nick I can "blow" that sentence with a kiss away ;) :D

    I was wondering the same. Maybe he thought if it was left in the camcorder no one would check the tape quickly. But if it was on his dead body it would be seen immediately and thus would reveal that it was Anna who stabbed him

  • The other thing is, that Anna must survive it and will appear in episode 5 or ? I mean we didn't saw a zombie who looked like her or had found any other evidence that she is dead.

    We never saw Lilly turn into a zombie or have found any evidence that she is dead, but we haven't see her come back, and she likely won't.

  • I think it's pretty obvious what tape 3 was all about.

    That's because she lives and in the comics we learn exactly where she goes and what she does.

  • Here's what I don't get. Why was it numbered 3 if they were sequential? There couldn't have been a third if the Doc is out of the picture by the 2nd. That's what I don't understand.

  • the molly tape is just the 3rd tape you get, its not the third in the series

    the tapes are dated by ddays after the outbreak, i believe the first 2 are 81 and 82, while the molly tape is 76 or something

    i remember thinking, wow Molly's last appointment was less than a week before Crawford was overrun? you would think she would try one last attempt to steal some medicine and would have seen what had happened

    on another note about the last tape, you see Doc Logan swiping the front of the camera when it shuts off in the last when hes on the ground
    the video camera wasnt even knocked over when you found it... so he carefully opened the camera and put the tape in his pocket?
    also, the thing about him taking the tape so people would know who murdered him doesnt make sense, since you can hear gunshots going off after the women leaves

  • I could have sworn I saw an 83 on that one. Will go back and look again. I'm old. I don't see so good ;)
