Did anybody else expect the Stranger...

...To be the Senator's son?

I mean as soon as I saw the car I was like "Ooohhhh boy..." and knew it was going to come back and bite me in the arse, but just how he asks "Do you know who I am?" made me jump up with a "Ha, I knew it!" line and expected a speech about revenge. The whole murder plot I expected to be a big Cherkov's Gun.

  • That would be great, although Lee explains a little about what caused him to kill the senator if you choose "i hurt my wife", but if the stranger was the son we would go very deep into the story.

    They wanted to make a link with the choice of stealing the supplies from the car and that was nice too, but he hates you even if you don't steal, using the excuse of putting clem in danger. That would make much more sense if it was the senator's son, because it would envolve the main event about lee's past, he would have a real reason for revenge and he wouldn't want the girl to stay with a murderer.

    I think Telltale had to make episode 5 very quickly, so it became short and with quick solving problems. If they had more time like the other episodes maybe we would see a more deep character as the stranger.

    But there's people thinking of a posible appereance of lee's wife in season 2 or something like that, with that problem coming back at the future with another perpective.

    Lee pretty much explains how the affair came to be, how he discovered it, and finishes with the murder. He never states how he killed the guy, just that he did.

    something about him coming back early one day because he was sick?

    Petty much. Then he found the dude and killed him. Doesn't say how, just says that he does. His wife also traveled and stuff, which led to it beginning in the first place.

  • I expected the senator/murder story to come back in some way and play a much bigger role than it did.

    I guess the point of it was not impact the story, but to make it a real possibility that Lee could be interpreted as a bad guy by the player.

  • I bet he just got a lifetime sentence because the guy was senator.

  • No, it's because he was black remember ;)

  • That was a actual question, since Lee did not "murder" him. It was in the heat of the moment. Here in germany that can lower your punishment.

  • Well, I don't know much about "Crime of Passion" laws here in the states, but I'd assume they would lead to a lesser sentencing. I'm pretty sure Lee only got life because the guy was a senator.
