Interesting trivia from the wiki about the stranger...

posted by -Anna- on - last edited - Viewed by 5.2K users

This is a quote from the wikipedia about walkie talkies.

'Another theory is that the man took it from Clementine's parents, this can be supported by Diana through the answer machine, saying Ed had a little "incident" with some crazy guy near the hotel, although this could have been a zombie.'

I haven't considered that the referenced 'crazy guy' could have been the crazy guy who was communicating with Clementine. Up to this point I had always interpreted 'crazy guy' as a walker.

Thoughts? Perhaps Clementine's creepy friend is a long-term stalker!

    Also, this is a bit off-topic, but why is the wiki posting left-field theories? Yeah, it's a cool theory and all, but it's hardly "Trivia", or wherever it was posted.

    Although it has'nt mentioned them I'd say its a pretty good bet there were cell phones and that people used them before everything went to hell. The walkie-talkie's used by Clementine's family were for Clementine's benefit. Clem being 8 yrs old probably did'nt have a phone so when she was outside in her treehouse or the yard or whatever her parents probably used them to call her in or ask her whereabouts or just talk. Besides being convenient it would be a bit of fun for Clementine. She tells Lee in one of the episodes as much, thats why they were so important to her.

  • @WowMutt said: The way I remember it, Glenn took off after EP1 with the other talkie to Atlanta. So there is a possibility that the unknown voice is from someone we just havent met yet. I'm interested in seeing how TT justifies who this person is and how he just so happened to get a walkie able to talk to Clem while we were at the motor inn and in Savannah. I've had walkie talkies and CB's and they do NOT have that sort of range in real life.

    I guess TT could just make it work for the purpose of the 'game'!!!

    One way is that the person on the walkie-talkie was following them all along, found out from Clementine where they were going and decided Savannah would be where he makes his move. I agree he certainly was'nt calling Clementine from Savannah.

  • "Ed had a little "incident" with some crazy guy"

    In mine opinion,(correct me if I'm wrong) that means Clem dad had a fight with a walker "Crazy guy" and was sent to the hospital(That what was the 2nd call was all about if I recall correctly) because he was possibly bitten, then Clem mom called the 3rd time because Clem dad possible turned into a walker and that's when all hell broke loose.

    I do think Lee was set up. I mean, why would the hat and the radio be next to a walker? Ooooor, that walker must've had been a homeless bum.

  • The guy on the Radio is Terry St. John...

  • @ColtPeacemaker00 said: It may have happened like that but why would Clementine's parents have taken a walkie-talkie with them? They could'nt have used it to talk with Clementine, the range would be too great. I'm pretty sure they wouldn't have been using them to talk with one another, thats why we have cell phones. The "crazy guy" I always took as being a walker and that it attacked and bit Clementine's father. And as already stated by another the walker swinging from the bell look as though it may be Oberon if you compare it with the picture from the school.

    I remember Clem saying something in ep 1/2 like I use it to talk to my Dad when he goes away, so could be a plot device and if it was stolen from the parents could explaine why her Mother left the answer machine message saying call 911 or could prove me wrong?

  • @LokiHavok said: The guy on the Radio is Terry St. John...

    He died before the outbreak.

    Yeah, she states it's how she used to talk with her parents - which is why she's so upset when it gets "broken" at the end of Ep. 1.

  • Doesnt Glenn have the other walkie and not Clems parents?..

    yes she tells Lee that she used them to talk to her parents but she does'nt clarify when she would talk to them on it. She could not have talked to them over any great distance because walkie-talkie's don't have that kind of range, and the ones you would let a child play with would probably be inexpensive and the range on those would be on the low end. She certainly would not be able to talk to her parents from her home and they in Savannah.

  • Walkies talkies are fairly common. The guy probably just found one, tried talking on it, and found Clem.

  • Or learned about Clem from her parents...
