Did I miss the part where Christa's pregnancy is actually revealed? They drag it out for three episodes only for Lee to make one throw away comment about how shes doint something (dont remember what) for two.

We could just assume that Lee figured it ou on his own, because by now who hasn't? But thats weired because Christa and Omid dont really react to that comment.

I don't know, just felt it was odd.

  • Like many things that were built up only to be abandoned, the pregnancy was terminated :D

    though seriously, it seemed like it should be an issue but there just wasn't time to deal with it plus it wouldn't really needed to be dealt with until it was born which wouldn't possibly happen for some months. what I wonder though, is if she was pregnant before the ZA or got pregnant during.

    I'm not sure I follow....

    It did feel odd. I'm pretty sure Christa is pregnant from all the clues given in e3-e5 but it felt like a scene where Christa breaks down a little and tells Lee that she is pregnant was cut from the episode. Then Lee just says later on "you're walking for two" which also should have been cut or else it would be confusing like it is now.

  • I think it became quite clear, that she is pregnant in the episodes 4-5.

  • Just because they don't spell it out for you (well, with all the clues, they practically did), doesn't mean the characters don't know.

    For all we know, in the time between episodes or scenes they might have had full conversations about her being pregnant. Just because we didn't see it happen doesn't mean it didn't.

  • Yeah, it's like with Mark in episode 3. He could have been with the group for most of those 3 months that passed in between the episodes. How he joined the group is hinted and teased at but the characters already know so they don't talk about it.

    It's fairly obvious she was pregnant, though i do wish it had been further explored than just one line.

  • I actually took the "You're walking for two" as he meant Clémentine and Christa (like, she has to stay safe to be able to take care of Clementine). I'm probably wrong though

  • @Doctanian said: Pretty much. Just sloppy writing.

    Could be; could be a loose thread; or it could be that that audience was never meant to know.

    but with all the implied info it would have been nice to have that story thread tied up before the end.

    or maybe we were meant to take the drink of the whiskey as a answer to if she was pregnant or not.

    It follows the line about Omid's leg as reasons for not going first. I think he would have put Omid in that same category if he was talking about staying safe for Clementine, since he and Christa are pretty much inseparable.

    "Sloppy writing" this definitely wasn't. "Sloppy" implies that this story thread was just forgotten somehow. On the contrary, it was definitely purposeful that there wasn't that big Christa pregnancy revelation scene but still hinted at in abundance in episode 5. In light of all the problems the group had, a childbirth that is at least five months in the future just did not really have that much of an urgency for Lee & company. It was defining for Christa as a character that she never talked about this, and it was defining for the rest of the group that they never addressed it although it was pretty much clear to everyone; and it was defining for the zombie world that her pregnancy had to take a back seat as events unfolded.
