What does that mean now for the cast of season 2? Especially since it will be using your season 1 save file
Not to say I wasn't sure the man was dead, but now we know for sure he's not getting retconned at all.
I have a creeping suspicion you will play as Molly, and start the game coming across Lee's body on a loot run. Now depending on what you did with Clem in season 1, either Lee will
A) be lying there dead chained to the radiator
B) chained to the radiator but still a walker
C) just be dead and not cuffed
D(worst case if you did nothing) ) loose in the room as a walker and will attack you for a QTE.
from there we'll follow Molly trying to escape savannah and figure out what happened to the rest of the survivors. Perhaps they'll have separate parts where you play as Molly in the city and Clem/Omid/Christa in the country side. it would be pretty awesome if eventually everyone meets up and ends up somehow meeting up with molly once she starts working for the Governor
edit: i mean lilly starts working for the Governor lol
