  • I wanted to tell her 'I'll miss you' but knowing that Lee's clock was running down fast I decided to focuse on giving Clem any survival advice options I could because she will be on her own in minutes. I didn't even have her shoot Lee because of the noise and using a bullet on Lee will mean having one less to protect herself with. I think just knowing that Lee came for her showed how much her cares. Like Liam Neeson at the end in Taken.

  • Clem shot my Lee. The way I saw it with the lack of an "I love you." option was that Lee didn't want to make it any harder for Clem than it already was.

    After all, she had just seen her undead parents and realized that she's going to be on her own from here on out. Lee just didn't want to traumatize her any further.

  • @lunamoon224 said: I totally agree w/ everyone, I really wanted the option to tell Clem that Lee loved her and thought of her as his daughter, but it never happened and I was pretty bummed out about that. Otherwise I really loved this game but I was like "I'll miss you?" :confused: How am I going to be missing her when I'm dead? That just didn't make sense to me. I know she will miss Lee but I just don't think you can miss someone when you're dead, just my opinion though. I ended up telling her not to be afraid to encourage her to stay strong.


    About the "I'll miss you" bit, I always figured Lee was a Christian judging by how he acts (good-guy lee, anyhow). It made sense for me in that context.

    Didn't Kenny say he was a Christian man at one point? I definitely didn't get that impression of Lee, though.

    I was expecting an 'I love you' option, or for Lee to say it anyway, but now I think about it, I'm glad he didn't. As other people here have said, she knew anyway, and I wanted her to be strong. I said 'I'll miss you', but I think I'll tell her not to be afraid next time. I think that line would suit 'my' Lee.

    I didn't think about it that way before but I can totally see that now. It would probably be too hard after just seeing her parents and especially if you choose the option of having her kill Lee so he doesn't turn.

  • i think ''i'll miss you" was good enough :(

  • @NikolajDeluke said: The answer is obvious.

    Because Clementine already knew. Besides, could a little girl shoot the man who just told her that he loved her like a daughter?

    This. It's all so sad :(

  • @Doctanian said: It should've been an option. Period.

    After all that shit they went through, the player should've had a choice to tell the girl that they loved her. Though their actions showed it, it would've made the game that much more rewarding.

    People actually defending this depresses me. TellTale fucked up, why can't some people just admit that? They have to make an excuse for every little thing.


    If you gave some constructive comments, people might actually listen. Bashing through the forums, telling everyone how bad Telltale fucked up, based on things most people didn't feel your way, doesn't really help your cause.

    Telling the community that "It should've been an option. Period.", doesn't fare too well either on these boards. Implying you want to discuss while clearly stating you won't, in your first sentence, shows a fair amount of ignorance, at least to me.

    Last, not least, I don't think Telltale fucked up at all and I loved the ending choices. Lee didn't redeem himself by telling Clem he loved her, he redeemed himself by giving his everything, SHOWING he loved her.

    Just a few thoughts... :)

  • I would have liked the option. I'd just love to hear Clem say "I love you, too, Lee."

  • @The_Cheshire_Cat said: I noticed that missing option as well.

    I disagree with the hard asses who feel those words don't need to be said.

    Sometimes it feels good to be validated. To have emotions and thoughts validated. Women..well people like and need that. Especially when dealing with a 9 year old.

    This isn't Kenny, ya know this is a scared little girl, she needs to know that when all hell broke loose she at least had someone who loved her when her folks were zombies

    I totally agree with you.It needs to be said.Yes I felt this emotions for her but I wanted to see her reaction when I say that..Maybe also an answer that let me die happily because of her words...
