**** committing suicide minutes after explicitly speaking out against it

posted by Chrizza on - last edited - Viewed by 495 users

Kenny commits suicide minutes after explicitly speaking out against it, when you're with Ben, at least. There was nothing heroic about it, if he did it for the right reasons he just could've put a bullet in Ben's head and left.

Now he just gave up.

  • i was in total disbelief i would have gone for the larry solution but kenny went for the never leave a good man behind solution, it felt pointless to me (the kenny saving christa death was better) but you cant stop kenny from doing anything he wants to do and he didnt want to leave ben behind so that is it.

    i wouldn't say it was suicide but it was something that would very highly likely end in his death, you can actually leave kenny with 5 more bullets so in that scenario it is the least suicidal, personally i think kenny made the wrong decision to try and save ben, but it wasn't inconsistent with kennys character or a suicide

  • well if I remember how it played out for me:
    Kenny: get the fuck outta here lee
    Lee: what?!?!?
    Kenny: go back! she needs you lee!
    Lee: KENNY!
    Kenny: THIS IS NOT A DISCUSSION!
    (choices come up)
    Lee: HELL NO MAN!, I'm not leaving!
    Kenny: WHAT DID I JUST SAY!?
    Lee: Let's get ben and get out of here!
    (kenny pushes Lee to side and closes gate)
    Lee: what the fuck kenny!?
    Kenny: Lee. Lee it's okay
    (choices come up)
    Lee: NO KEN! no it's not!
    Kenny: its just somethin' I gotta do, you know that... now go get that girl.
    Kenny: BACK YOU SONS OF BITCHES!
    (lee tries to pull gate).

    that's pretty similar to my choices, but it think he would have been more help with lee than ben, it may have heroic to try and save ben but so would have running into the hoard of zombies in episode 3 to save the girl that got bitten (Beatrice) and just as pointless

  • I keep hearing this from people, I do believe Kenny said:

    "You shouldn't kill yourself, you should go out helping out those you care about."

    Kenny died a hero, he thought, even if there was only a sliver of a chance to save Ben he'd take it.

  • You know who there was a chance of saving? Clementine...
    He would've been more of a hero if he tries to save her but well, in my playthrough at least, he didn't want to come at all so why would I assume that he would actually do something worthy. Silly me.
    In my eyes he died a selfish bastard who thought more about his own problems than other peoples'. Typical Kenny

    Well Kenny did die trying to save Ben, someone he had every right to hate and even kill...

    Trust me, I hated Kenny as much as the next guy. Between Kenny and Lilly, I was mostly on Lilly's side... But this last episode he actually started to change. He realized his mistakes, he wanted to redeem himself. What really changed Kenny to me was what he said about Katjaa:

    "Do you know how many nights Katjaa would spend telling me I need to be more considerate of others? Every night..."

    I hated Kenny because of how unreasonable he was. I saved Katjaa and Duck maybe five times during the course of this season and yet he says I was barely there for him. But in this last episode he started to realize his mistakes, started to realize how much of a dick / unreasonable he was.

    Maybe the worst thing about Kenny was how he thought he was being the good guy, but now finally he accepts that he was the one being an unreasonable dick.

  • If Kenny had lived, here's what I think would happen:

    When they get to the sign, you have a choice on who goes across first. The sign breaks after Omid and Christa have gone across, or breaks if just Lee goes. I reckon Kenny weighs about the same as Lee, so the sign would break after he goes first. All other times, he is stranded on the other side with Lee or Omid and Christa.

    If he's with Lee, then he has the option of going back the way they came, or climbing down to face the horde. Facing the horde would probably have resulted in his death, seeing as they would be able to pick him out easily (as opposed to Lee, whose blood is already tainted).

    If he's with Omid and Christa, I suppose he could choose to follow you down, if he likes you enough. But then its the same as above.

    If he went across the sign, then yeah, he could probably get to the Marsh House.

    So what would happen if Lee and Kenny went in together?

    Campman would probably just get the drop on them like he does with Lee and shoot Kenny in the head, then things progress as usual.

    The alternative is that he'd be with Omid and Christa. Would he force them to go with him to find a new boat? Or would he go with them to the country side? Or would he leave them, if they won't help find a boat? Maybe he'd have them wait to see if Lee emerges from the Marsh House.

    I was sad to see him go out the way he did, but I understood his reasons. He was probably just acting tough, but he wanted a way out without committing suicide like Katjaa did. When Ben/Christa got in trouble, he found that way.

  • Kenny should've just shot Ben and left with Lee.. He knows Lee didn't have any more time, he could've been Clementine's new guardian. He's a good father, but I think him just giving up like that is absurd... Now, we have no freaking idea where Omid and Christa are... =.=

    In my game, after I told him to fuck himself in ep.4 he was more than happy to leave us. Then after he got beaten, all of a sudden he was our best friend again. Somehow Clementine became HIS priority. Then in the attic, he wanted to drop something heavy on my Lee's head. Right after that he dared to talk about Lilly (bastard).
    Then he gave us his "don't give up, Katjaa shouldn't given up speech."
    And finally he kills himself for nothing, forgetting about Clementine and that my Lee might actually use his help.

    Your story sounds good, but that's not what happened in mine at all.

    That's a real shame. :(
