How would you react if Clem wasn't in the next series?

I'd probably have a lump in my throat throughout the whole game. :(

  • With that ambiguous ending, I'd rather see Omid, Christa and Clementine once again, than just leaving the ending untied.

  • I'd rather Clementine appear at the start then within the first couple episodes is given closure so we can move on. I would hate for them to give us that cliffhanger and not address it in the next season. I kind of wish they just gave all the characters (Omid and Christa as well) closure in Episode 5 so they could start fresh in Season 2 though.

  • I personally think it would be a terrible waste if TTG does not continue Clem's storyline in season 2 after utilizing the entire first season to develop her character. Besides, I want to see the results of Lee's sacrifice and the continued impact of the decisions he (we) made.

    Ultimately, Clem is all we have left of Lee and I think that would be a horrible thing to throw away. The theme of this season was "For Clem." The theme of the next season should be "For Lee." \m/

  • I think that even if Clem isn't the focus of season 2 that we will almost definitely see her or omid or christa or maybe even join them.

  • Lee's sacrifice wouldn't mean anything if they continued Clem's story in Season 2.

    A - It would be silly for Clem to just bump into another really nice guy who takes Lee's role as a teacher and caretaker. Lee and Clem's bond was special and just doing it again next season with a new character would lessen the importance of his character.

    B - It would make the choices of Season 1 have less meaning. With an open ending, we can all choose our own way of teaching Clem and possibly be right. By continuing Clem's story in Season 2, all of those "Clementine will remember this" actions will be pointless. For instance, if I tried to make Clem a no-nonsense fighter, while you tried to make her a caring and friendly, leaving her story open would allowed us both to be right in our way, rather than making one path correct.

    If they intended for it to be ambiguous i think they would have left it at the final scene instead of adding that extra post-credits one. Even showing Clem alone in the countryside would have been enough for interpretation but i think they're obviously driving the story somewhere with the two shadowy figures.

    If they use saves from season 1, maybe her personality against characters in season 2(if she's in it) will be based upon your actions and choices as Lee.

  • I'm not bothered. I say go for it as long as they keep the same writers and same people to produce it, maybe have her appear at the end. I reckon her, Omid and Christa will end up in a new group but they may take a back seat to start with to focus on new characters.

    Yeah but that's my point, Having Clem's personality be affected would add the possibility of there being a "right" choice, or at least a preferable one. That would be a mistake imo, because it would make people who chose the oppisite be "wrong", and make replaying the game less interesting.

    Breaking down your Season 1 actions to just being a slight change in dialogue for the next season would be making Lee's story pointless.

  • This is a charecter that must be used. If theyvdont its a waste of writing genious with THE best charecters tgat Ive seen written in a game. In AC you dont care this much for Ezio.
    All these haters just want to have a bad ass with a baseball bat... Thats got old.

    Not using this kind of charecter would be retarded. And they can get a more emotional response than Season 1 if they kill her in a season or two or get her bit. Imagine making us do that. You dont have to do teacher carer. A brother/sisterly relationship. She can care for herself but shes naive and weak. It will good to see new found independance and Clens struggle for respect from grown ups who belittle her.

  • @short_stack said: i wouldnt mind it infact might prefer it, her story is over and it was a beautiful story.
    the ending was ambigious but thats how all good stories end. hopefully she found good people to be with and lives a long happy life with them regardless if the shadow people were omid and christa.

    Why? All good stories do not end that way. I wouldn't want to have an ambiguous end to her fate because would still ask what happened to her and having an ambiguous ending and starting anew would deem keeping the past saves irrelevant and useless.
