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

  • So dose this mean the game is not canon anymore?

  • Oh you die hard Lilly Fans.

    You just crack my up.

  • I'm just curious if the game is not canon now I could care less about Lilly.

  • I am a big fan of Carley and even though I was pissed at Lilly for what she did, I do still like her. Lilly was doing was she thought was best for the group, it was wrong, but she had the right intentions.

  • So did Ben - when he.....

    ....traded with the Bandits.
    ....Left Clem.
    ....Gave you an Axe. :D
    ....decided to come out at the worst possible time ever. :D

    Lovin' those good intentions. :D

    Don't worry everything else is still canon to the walking dead universe, you'll be pleased to know that only this Lilly's story has been changed.

  • @YamiRaziel said: Am I imagining things or are people much more supportive of Lilly now that ep.3 is in the past? Especially after some of them realized what an asshole Kenny is I'm definitely sure I see more people posting stuff like "I like Lilly, she was cool".

    Well, I must say I'm one of these people. When we were with her, I always tried to be neutral on her discussions with Kenny, but when I didn't have to pick sides, I tried to be nice to both of them. But after episode 2, I found myself leaning more towards pro-Lilly choices when she and Kenny were arguing, but remained willing to regain Kenny's friendship, even though his behaviour was pushing me away. But Lillly was still a decent person in the end, even though she messed up big time by shooting Doug, at least she had good intentions and showed regret afterwards.

    After seeing Kenny on episode 4... to me, at least, it seems he just doesn't care about people. The only time he showed some kind of remorse was before he smashed Larry's head in. Since I didn't help him do it, he left me to die later on episode 2 and on the beginning of episode 3. Then he was eager to kick Lilly out of the RV, as if her snapping had absolutely nothing to do with some of his past actions, and on episode 4 he doesn't even want to consider taking Molly on the boat even though she saves his life ("What has she done for me lately?"). And then he wanted me to just drop Ben from the bell tower and go, which is understandable, but still very wrong. That was it for me.

    Seeing how Kenny is now really does make me miss Lilly.

    1 vs 4 at least :p

    Still what she did outweighs these (in a horrible way) as a single act but she has contributed more to the group than Ben. I did keep him alive by the way.

  • Now that Lilly is officially not the one from the comics anymore, I hope we get to see her again. Maybe in season 2.

  • A shame we didn't get the option to kill Lilly after she murdered Carley.
