  • Dildor, I agree with you partially.. but I do believe that the scene was hard for Clem not only because it was Lee. Yeah, Clem choose to survive and help Lee when she saw he parents were dead. She did not allow herself to fall to grief then because she still had a friend to take care of.

    But I think the emotions she felt at the end were not just for Lee's demise. In a few moments she went from a girl hoping for her parents were alive while being in the care of a strong protector, to knowing her parents being confirmed deadand her protector about to die.

    Just because she didn't collapse on the street, doesn't mean she wasn't devastated over it. Heck, she also did what she had to do to Lee.

  • With her parents now confirmed dead, Lee was the last and only person she had to hold onto. Losing him had to be crushing.

    If her parents were alive and Lee died she would have been sad, but still had her folks to fall back on for some kind of comfort; with them dead and Lee gone...it's just too much I think.

  • Agreeing with everybody else, I believe Lee was more emotionally devastating. She probably knew deep down that her parents were dead, but refused to believe it so she had that little tiny sliver of hope. If you notice, when she saw her parents, all she did was stare with a sad look, and when Lee fell down, she was still able to help him. Which means she probably wasn't too busy crying, so she was more worried about him, who became a huge figure over the time, than someone she hasn't seen in 3 months. Lee was more devastating.

    Lee's fate, because she felt like she had caused it.

  • Lee, Of course. Though she deeply cares for her parents, She loved them, yes, But she spent a very long time with Lee also. She survived the zombie apocalypse with him, after all.

  • You guys are picking Lee because you're looking at the game as the totality of Clementine's life, which it isn't.

    Imagine if your parents died, or a guy who helped you survive a crisis for a few weeks/months. Which would be more significant?

  • Although Clementine persistently asked you to find her parents I think she began to accept the truth a long time ago and replaced them with Lee.

  • The 30mins she loses Lee and her parents

  • @Shrewsbury Survivor said: The 30mins she loses Lee and her parents

    This.. as I said before: She basicly lost everything the moment Lee also died. When she saw her parents, she stayed strong because she still had Lee. But also losing Lee would break anyone. She lost both in a very short time.

    And yes, I also think too many people here view it too much from themselves and really can't put themselves into the shoes of Clem. Just because we didn't bond with her parents doesn't mean that she lost the bond after just a few months.
