"I don't believe in strength in numbers"

So this is my first post on the forum and I wanted to know what you people think of this phrase Christa said in ep3. I think she is kind of right because Lee's group only had problems when they were all together while Omid and Christa handled themselves pretty well.

    adooorable. :3

    But still, do you think Kenny would risk having a newborn CRYING-ATTRACTING-WALKERS baby around for Christa's sake? And do you think Christa will give up her baby especially after seeing how that scenario ended for Ana Correa? Maybe they will just have to agree to go their separate ways. All I know is Kenny has never been one to think through the consequences of his actions - he just acts.

  • If it came down to Kenny vs. Christa, he's a dead man.

    C'mon, kids have always been the line he can't cross. He could barely kill zombie Duck and zombie Duck lookalike. You think he could make her have a abortion or even kill the new born? Not a chance

    Besides she's not that far pregnant so I don't think we will ever see that choice get made, especially since Lee has no time. And Kenny thinks through things all the time.

  • Kenny may be an idiot, but people are demonizing him more than he deserves. He would never kill a pregnant woman/newborn, he is a family man and children are his weakness.

    No way would Kenny kill a baby or a pregnant woman. He would in no way be thrilled at the idea of having to take care of a baby during a time like the ZA, but he's too much of a family man. Who knows, he might try to help Christa and Omid because he couldn't help his own family and wants to make it right. He'd probably have Christa (and Omid, if they could afford it) stay back at the house/camp/motel/where they're hiding and go for supplies with anyone else who is able to come.

    Hmm, I don't know. You think Kenny wouldn't have dropped a salt lick on pregnant Christa if she was in the floor in the locker? I say he would. I think he would have dropped it on anybody except Katjaa or Duck. Ok, maybe he wouldn't dropped it on Clem, but I'm not sure.

    Kenny's family matters to Kenny, not other people's family. Kenny won't go to save Clem at the end of episode 4 if he doesn't feel that she and Lee have become family, so why would he care about Christa, pregnant or not, when he has even less of a relationship with her?

    I would like to see more interaction between Kenny and Christa and Omid. In episode 4, Telltale made sure that everyone had a reason to go to Crawford ... I think it would have been more interesting if the boat was ready to go, and Kenny would have argued to not risk getting medicine for Omid, because he really doesn't care.

  • He knew lee and clem for a little more than 3 months. By the time christa will have the baby he'd have known her for probably twice as long, so a strong almost family friendship has time to be born.

    Apparently not, since he didn't want to join me in finding Clem.

    If you say Clem is family to you, he'll probably come. Btw has someone done a thread about the people from the game you would take with you in a group?

    I think these are both fundamentally different then Kenny outright killing Christa because she is pregnant or forcing an abortion/murder the baby at birth, let me explain why.

    In your first example if Christa is infected, so would the baby more than likely (I would assume so but do not know how Kirkman's view on this in his world). Therefore regardless she (Christa) will be a threat if she rises and turns on them, maybe due to her relatively smaller size then the "giant" Larry Kenny would wait for her to turn, THEN smash her head in.

    Your second example I feel is that Kenny can distance himself from Clem's situation because it is not known that she is dead and there are others willing to help Lee. I feel this insulates him from the feeling one would get from say leaving Clem in the middle of a pack of zombies (freakin' Ben) or killing her if she were to turn.

    Therefore I believe that Kenny is capable of killing an adult female (pregnant or not) if she was infected or turned but I do not think he is able to kill a zombie kid just yet. I'm sure he will be able to in time, it's just too soon for him. I also believe he has a weak spot for women and kids and would give his life protecting them if he feels they are in imminent danger.
