Clem drowns, what do you do?

A lot can be said about Kenny and Lilly's loyalty to family members. They constantly put the group at risk and make decisions seemingly solely based on who they're related to sometimes, but what would you do?

Here's the hypothetical: Clem is drowning and you pull her out. She's not breathing and you can't feel a pulse.* You're trapped on a boat so you can't leave. Also, everybody in the group is weak from lack of food.

The group wants to kill her before she turns. You could try giving her CPR or back off and let them kill her. What do you do?

*Young children may have a mammalian diving reflex. When they are suddenly immersed in cold water less than 68F (20C), they can stop breathing, slow their heart rate dramatically, and shunt all the blood flow to the heart and brain. Though not common, these children may be resuscitated and return to normal function. Cases have been reported of survival, even after being underwater for an hour.

  • I would first deal with Kenny just like Larry dealt with me in episode 1 (punch)
    Then I would do everything I can to save her
    I would do this no matter who it was even Kenny even though he is worse than Larry ever was

  • @Awesoke said: The disagreement you had with Kenny involved a life threatening decision. Kenny saved your life in the pharmacy. Then when the time came to support him in the meat locker, you decided you might be able to save someone that just had a heart attack, which was highly unlikely. The more likely outcome if Kenny had not killed Larry was everyone in the locker dying. So if you look at it from Kenny's POV, you can see why he decided to not help you.


    You almost succeed as Larry begins to start breathing again before Kenny...

  • @Red Panda said: Admirable and brave. She could turn and bite your mouth off when you're giving her mouth to mouth. Then again, she could live. Bold gamble.

    I know the game is over now, and we all know how that ended. But for the sake of this post... I would easily take the chance and give her mouth to mouth. If she dies, I would have to point in living, I would probably end up killing myself anyways if she was gone. If you had a kid, this wouldnt even be a question.

  • I would try CPR it,because #YOLO

  • I would firstly check under Kenny's cap for any salt licks and then get the water out of her lungs. Would work.

  • Personally i would try to save her. If it goes badly i will grab her and throw myself off the boat to die. If it goes well, we all live happily ever after. Its a good choice though, i can imagine some players agonizing over it. Would show how cold hearted some tough players really are.

  • I would attempt to save Clementine no matter what.

    I think Telltale purposely created characters that people will naturally dislike, like Larry, and put their life in your hands.

    Here's a guy who spouts insults at you left and right, tries to kill you, and rarely if ever has anything nice to say every single time you have the chance to talk to him. Then, suddenly his fate is yours to decide. Can you overcome personal hatred for somebody, to save their life? Or will you be consumed and controlled by your emotions? I can almost guarantee that a large portion of the player base would have attempted to save Larry if he was a nice, caring and all around good guy.

    I would save my enemies were their life in my hands, and I'd do the same for my friends(i just let the positive side of my emotions reinforce those actions).

    i think a small child compared to a huge man it the big distinction, if larry was basically a short ben i would have tried to save him, i just believe a zombie Larry could just shrug off any attempt to stop him if he was a zombie and throwing a salt lick at an upright larry would just make him stumble then eat whoever was near him

  • I'd tell everyone to back off and let me do what I can to revive her. I doubt Kenny will bring a salt lick along and I'm pretty sure if Clementine didn't make it and turn(NOOOOOO), we can just push her off the boat. I hope that doesn't happen.
