So, what did you guys think about him and his 'death'?

I say I really liked Kenny as a character. He had his ups and downs, and wasn't a gary-stu in the slightest. I also had good times laughing at him, like when Larry knocked him out and he got jumped by old cancer survivors. He also shared my distaste for Ben, but maybe he went a little overboard with it. His nicknames for Ben also made me laugh, and his plans were actually good.

But his 'death'.

I didn't really like how he said "I'm a Christian man." "Try to go as long as you can." Blah blah, and then practically suicides for a obviously dead Ben. I mean, that had some faults there. But I really think the Christa 'death' scene makes more sense; he would have more chances of surviving, and he couldn't get out, unlike the Ben scenario.

What do you think?

    The screaming could be muffled from the walkers dogpiling him, maybe? :p

    Deffie. :rolleyes:

    Then how come they weren't when you looked down on them?

    Maybe there were some ontop of him, but there were so many walkers all you could see were the ones standing up?

    And it could also be a mistake on the artist's part \n/

  • Nah, he's good. His 'stache will morph into a beautiful beard in Season 2.

  • My version of Lee did often back up Kenny and agreed with him about family but I didn't help him to kill Larry. I ended Ducks life for him as no father should have to go through killing his own son especially after watching his wife take her life.

    Kenny for me was a good character, he was pretty selfish at times but not a bad guy really. The scene with Ben standing up to Kenny after being getting insulted by him and harrassed constantly did help a bit in making Kenny seem less like an idiot for just blaming Ben without consideration for what Ben might have been through. His final scene where he stays behind to stop Ben from turning striked me as odd, if he wanted to end Bens suffering he could have easily shot him from the ladder Lee used to get back onto the roof and then just closed the gate and went on with the rest of the group to find Clem. Especially after him saying you shouldn't just give up and to keep fighting on.

    I agree. Kenny could've just as easily shot Ben in the head and say pow then climb the ladder with Lee.

    I guess it was TTG's redemption scene for him.

    Yeah seems like that's what they were going for though it just kinda conflicted with his character because of his whole "family matters" mindset, not giving in by suicide, friendship with Lee depending on player actions and trying to find Clem after taking care of her so long with the rest of the group and knowing Lee was going to die soon.

    Felt like a bit of a rushed and pointless death. I heard if Ben dies in episode 4 he dies by having to lift Christa up from a hole in the roof by giving her a boost up then just getting killed by the walkers inside the room. That to me doesn't conflict with his character at all and it was a death that happened because he had no options for escape or fighting back but in Ben's final scene he could have.

    Yes, if you kill Ben then Kenny bumps into Lee and the walkie falls into the hole. Then Christa becomes a bitch and jumps down after it before Lee can say anything and gives the walkie back but can't get out of the hole, and walkers start to come from the noise. Kenny gets pissed off and jumps in and helps her up, but cannot get back up himself and is trapped by walkers.

    That death was mainly Christa being retarded.
