I have a minor problem with episode 5

There is something wrong with regards how the final scene plays out in Episode 5 in my opinion. The main problem I have is with regards Clemintine's encounter with the walker that is equipped with the keys and the gun in which Clemintine is dangerously close to death as it closes in on her and as a result of the infection Lee is unable to fight the walker and later in the scene a vase falls and collides with Lee's head causing some pain and then later Lee has the strength to kick the baseball bat (the one that Clem used to break the window of the door in order to open it) and thus Clemintine uses the baseball bat as a weapon, killing the walker and ensuring her survival.

While I am joyous as Clemintine does not die thus she can carry Lee's legacy to Season 2, I am not content with how the scene played out as it was shown to be rather hopeless since Lee was unable to move due to his infection and it looked as though Clemintine was guaranteed to be eaten alive, but Lee still saves the day. Now I understand that Lee still would have had the strength to kick the baseball bat to Clem, but such a thing shouldn't have happened in my opinion due to the vase falling upon Lee which seemed very heavy and in Lee's weakened state I feel that it had the potential to knock him unconscious thus rendering him unable to provide to Clem a suitable weapon for killing the Walker and thus while he would have been in his unconscious state Clem will have been beyond dead.

While I am happy that Clemintine is safe and sound I feel the scene was a little unrealistic.

  • lol what the heck are you babbling on about? I loved the scene and thought it showed how much Clementine meant to Lee. He was almost completely physically disabled but he still managed to take care of his business. Thats love for you. I think your dissecting things to much but this is my opinion.

  • "Babbling" is the perfect word.

    Dude, there are dead people walking around. "Unrealistic" isn't an issue. Admittedly, I usually hate that argument, but honestly you are complaining about nothing. What a useless thread. If this is your biggest complaint with the game, then that is a testament to the high quality of it, if anything.

    My thoughts exactly.

    This is absolutely true. OP, the vase is there to give us a 'hearts in mouth' moment, nothing more. There's no reason for it to be there other than to add excitement. They probably made that scene without the vase and realised it needed to be a bit more exciting.

  • I apologise for the thread that was made, its just that I felt that it was somewhat too joyful for a game that depicts itself as something that is very dark and depressing.

    Seeing as the thread is pointless it may as well be locked, again apologies for the babbling.

  • does it matter if you put the handcuffs on the guard or yourself?

    I never thought about that when I was writing my little vent about the scene.
