I was unable to get an answer for this when I posted before, so here goes:
In Episode 1, I saved Duck, defended Kenny verbally in the store (but said "reason with him"). When Kenny asked for consolation, I didn't give it to him. Later on, in Episode 2 when Kenny first arrives on the farm, when I talk to him when he's pushing Duck on the swing and ask him if his family reached the farm all right, he responds like I voted Duck out in the pharmacy.
In my first playthrough I did the exact same thing as above, except I consoled Kenny. Is Kenny's response in Episode a result of my lack of consolation or is this a save issue?
