Did anyone else think the guy in the Train was Clementine's Dad at first?

When Lee and Ben found the guy in the Train, I didn't get a clear first look at the picture on the wall and thought it was the same picture from Clementine's house. Then I remembered she said her Dad was an engineer, and this guy could have been a train engineer. He could have also fled from savannah in the train to find clementine, but he failed when the train crashed. It would have been interesting if that was case, it's too bad it wasn't.

Edit: Dear everyone: I meant the engineer in the front of the train, not chuck. Lrn2read.

  • Are you talking about Chuck?

    Good lord *facepalm*

  • No, that's a really dumb thing to think, no offence.

    For one, the guy in the train was called Chuck/Charles, and her dad was called Ed.

    And uhh... Clementine's dad was like... 20 years younger than Chuck...

    If you seriously thought that he was her dad... wow.

    That's like me seeing Christa and saying "OH MY GOD, is it just me or was that the Senator that Lee murdered for sleeping with his wife?!"

    He's not even talking about Chuck..... But it still makes no sense for her dad to be the train conductor for so many reasons.

  • No, not for a second.

    Reason: the voice messages in episode 1.

  • No. Didn't cross my mind at all. I figured they were long dead and gone.

  • The family picture in Clementine's house shows her dad to be a rather stockily built African American man.

    The conductor was leaner and was white .

    How the hell would you think he was Clem's dad?

  • Nope. He had no physical appearance close to her dad. Besides, it wouldn't make sense for one of her parents to be introduced in the third episode.

  • You might have looked a white decomposed body as a black guy.. And Clementine's dad was much more "buff" in appearance. Not that skinny.
    Besides, what the fuck would Clementine's dad be doing in a train, while he was basically dead in a hospital bed? The conductor even had workwear on, he wouldn't be wearing that while he's on a holiday.

  • No.

    The photo you pick up in Clem's house is of an African-American family. Clem's father is clearly a brown skinned, clean-shaven African-American man, and her mother is a thin light skinned African-American or biracial woman.

    The family photograph in the train is of a Caucasian family. The conducter is bearded and his wife has a stocky build. They look nothing like Clem's parents.

    In addition to that, Clementine tells you that her father was an engineer. If you listen to the voice mail on the answering machine in Clem's house, Clem's mom leaves a message for the baby sitter saying that her husband was attacked by a crazy person (we of course know that it was a zombie) in Savannah, and that he's in the hospital and isn't feeling well. Besides the fact that Clem's dead wasn't a train conducter, we know early on in the game (thanks to the voice mail) that he got turned into a zombie.

    The train conducter on the other hand, was quite obviously killed in the wreck with those cars. The window he'd have been looking out was smashed and he had a hole in his head, right where his head would have struck the glass.

    No offense, but I'm not sure why you thought they were the same people.
