Does anyone think I'm in denial? Spoilers.

Okay, so, this is probably because I'm Team Kenny and I still really haven't recovered at all from episode 5, but does anyone else think that Kenny could still be alive?

Because, well, we never SEE him die. I've only seen two scenarios though, when he saves Ben and then again when he saves Christa. And we don't see him die either time. At the end, where they talk about the characters, it doesn't say Kenny dies. It says he was "lost" to the herd. And after the times where Kenny is missing or whatever, Lee has the option to say that maybe Kenny made it?

I know it's far fetched, but I don't think I'm ready to accept that Kenny actually died.

  • I really doubt that he's alive, but it's nice to have that option open for Season 2. :)

  • I got a look of pity from Christa when I said maybe he made it xd

    I was upset that Kenny did what he did to 'save' Ben but the moment he pushed me through the gate the Walkers were on him. If the Walkers were that close I do not think Kenny would have risked it.

    Therefore I think that it is possible, and likely, that Kenny did escape not because it is logical based upon what we saw but because Kenny's actions are illogical based on what we saw. In other words I think the programmers and the writers didn't communicate properly because otherwise the Walker's wouldn't have been so close.

    My perspective. Based entirely upon what we saw I would say Kenny cannot survive reasonably.

  • I was thinking Kenny would just put Ben out of his misery like we did with Duck, I mean "one bullet left" seemed to be emphasized pretty well. Seemed odd that he would try to save Ben when he was clearly dead(how they thought he'd live I'll never know). Making me assume Kenny honestly wanted to die at this stage.

    One thing I enjoyed about the game is something the show did poorly (I've never read the comic). In the show's first season the blonde that is suicidal and wants to die doesn't seem to change her mind about her suicide however most suicides are sudden and irrational. Without going into a tangent I liked that Ben did want to live because he had wizened up. His moment in the belltower was not bravery or a sense of wanting to do 'right by the group' it was cowardice and depression.

    Kenny would not have willingly committed absolute suicide or, in my opinion, sacrificed himself for someone who was not Katjaa or Duck (maybe Lee? Unlikely.) In fact only moments before Kenny was critical of the suicidal couple because they had killed themselves. He even admitted that he thought Katjaa's doing it (imagine how hard that must have been) was wrong but that he forgave her. He admitted that. Openly. Pretty resounding words.

    Point is that I think my above post is right. I suspect Kenny lived (or at least thought he would). I do not suspect he was being suicidal to 'save' Ben.

  • Anything is possible. He may come back. At least he redeemed himself a little for me when he tried to save Ben so I guess I wouldnt mind as much if we got a cameo in Season 2.

  • I hope he's alive, It would make a great Season 2 start where Kenny, Omid, and Christa find Clementine and that's where the story continues, It wouldn't make any sense to make new characters for Season 2 since Christa and Omid (Possibly Kenny) are still alive.

  • I think Kenny saw a chance to be with his family again, but also without giving up. In my game he saved Christa, and as soon as he jumped down there to save her I knew he wasn't coming back up. So he finally did what Kat told him to do: he thought about others before himself, and gave his life for someone he'd met only a day or two before. While it's possible he may have escaped, I really don't think he did. By the start of Episode 5, he's pretty much the most likely to die (aside from Lee) because he couldn't handle losing everything he fought to protect.

  • Kenny's death was really out of character.

    That said, the fact they even give you an option to suggest he's still alive either says TellTale's got more planned for Kenny or their sadistic bastards.

    I'm going with the latter.
