Your Opinion on Carley's injury.

posted by CarleyandLeeTWD on - last edited - Viewed by 1.5K users

Ok, first of all, you guys who say it's not an injury but death should just shut up. An injury could be fatally, mortally or slightly wounding. A fatal injury is the same as death. I just used injury cus I don't like being reminded about what happened to her, because I liked her character/personality whatever.

you don't say "Im sorry for his death" to a loved one but you say "Im sorry for his passing." it sounds less grave or whatever.


The point of this thread is: WHAT IS YOUR TAKE ON CARLEY'S INJURY? IS IT REALISTIC FOR YOU? WHY/ WHY NOT?

In other words, do you think her injury was realistic/instant fatal injury could happen due to a shot to the cheek? and a shot there could cause that fatal injury?
_________________________________________________________
My opinion is that a gunshot to the cheek will not be fatal. It would hurt a lot, and probably pass through your jaw and some blood vessels, but in my opinion, it wasn't that realistic and wouldn't kill instantly. I talked to my dad and he said that it wouldn't be fatal since it did not pass through the brain but would probably puncture some blood vessels, but not kill. It would cause significant injury.

I think so too. A gunshot to the cheek isn't that fatal. What's more is that she was shot while she was facing sideways, not facing lily directly meaning it passed through her other jaw and so it didnt hit the brain. (if carley was facing lilly face to face it might hit some vital parts like maybe graze the brain) Basically, i don't think it could be instant death. Plus, i don't think it's that realistic for her to die instantly without speaking a word. You can see many guys with disformed jaws still very much alive.

What's your opinion on this? Will it hurt her fatally?

Please respond. :) POSITIVELY. I would respect your opinion, (but i wont if its full of crap and such)

  • @Rock114 said: It was actually explained in an interview. Lee really didn't think Carley would get her head blown off two seconds later, so the game went on as normal saying "Carley will remember that" so that the player, along with Lee, wouldn't see it coming.

    My recollection of the moment went something like this:

    ! Carley will remember that

    sweet. This should lead to something cool down the road...

    jeez Carley, lighten up a little. wait, what is Lilly doing with her shirt?

    BANG!

    WTF! Son of a B.....!

    pauses game

    Holy Shit what just happened!!! :confused::mad:

  • Well, those messages really worked to make me feel falsely safe during the scene, so when Lilly opened fire, I was shocked, to say the least.

    About Carley's "injury". I love Carley. But she's dead.
    It was shocking and unfair, of course, but you can't change what's happened. It just happened, gotta deal with it. She was a great character and a very nice girl, but she's gone. And Lee's dead too, so... I guess they will meet again.

  • Stages of Carley Grief.

    1. "it just grazed her"/ "she could make it" (denial)
    2. "Fuck Lilly (and Ben)" / "choices mean nothing!"(anger)
    3. "What if i had said something different?" (bargaining)
    4. "*sobbing* *has to stop playing game*" (depression)
    5. RIP Carley (acceptance).

    From experience, 5 is the best one.

    Honestly? I never thought Lilly would fly off the handle like that. The way it went for me was:

    *Carley will remember that*. Hmm, guess Lee has a chance with her after all.

    *Insert awesome *tough bitch* line here*. Yeah, tell'er Carley! *everyone turns around*

    *Lilly reaches back for her gun* Oh, I get it. This is the part where she threatens us with the-

    *Carley's head explodes* HOLY SHIT.

    More accurate picture. Highlighted area is parts of your brain that is necessary to live. Blue line is trajectory of Lilly's bullet. As we can see, it hits the thalamus. The Thalamus is an organ that takes in all sensory and nervous information, and relaying it to where it's supposed to go. Thus, Carley is dead.

    I posted this some time ago (a bit more reliable graphs but admittedly less 'luzly' to be fair)

    @Vainamoinen said: she got shot right in the head (albeit not dead center but that's not relevant) and fell dead instantly. don't know why you want to discuss her "injury". It was a fatal shot resulting in immediate death.
    Believe me, I have played the game roughly 7 times (due to need for video-footage), I have seen that scene more than enough. It wasn't her cheek.

    Edit: My proof the shot penetrated her brain thus resulting in immediate death:

    lol i am so happy that i felt the need to make this, it made me start drawing again, plus i still think it is a reasonably good explanation as to why she definitely died

    @Vainamoinen said: Doug was shot in his nape, wasn't he?

    it is a joke picture, sort of saying if you think Carley survived it is just as likely that Doug survived, and when you look at it like that most people say doug died and would realise that carley died aswell

  • WOW, is this real life? IS THIS THREAD REALLY HAPPENING?

  • I dont think the bullet hit the brain. Lilly was holding it normally, one handed. The bullet of course travels in a straight path. She was shot when she was turning her head so probably there was an exit wound in the other cheek. Basically, she was facing sidewards, then she gets shot. The bullet travels straight, so i dont get how it hits the brain. Lilly was holding thr gun normally, not tilted or angled.
