Lilly Caul in Road to Woodbury

posted by Estrella16 on - last edited - Viewed by 740 users

I know this thread has been posted probably millions of times but has anyone (Kirkman or Telltale or the author of the book) talked about and explained what the heck is going on as to why Lilly has a different backstory in the book(a crappy one no less) to the one in the game? Has it been explained? The book itself is very mediocre to be honest but this whole confusion with the Lilly thing makes it even worse!

    Are you fucking kidding me? The official sources maybe?

    Wow wow relax dude. The official version was initially is that Lily of the comic strip and Lilly of the game is the same, and now the official version is that this is a different characters. I very much want to believe that the second version is correct.

    It is. The last reliable source said, that Kirkman decided that Lilly from the Game is not Lily Caul from the comic/book. And I am relaxed.

  • Original plan:Telltale ask Kirkman if they can include Lilly Caul in their game and tell her back story before she arrived in Woodbury.Kirkman says yes,go ahead.

    Plan B also known as "Kirkman fucks over Telltale": Kirkman decides to co-write novels detailing the back story of his characters from Woodbury and decides that the second one will be about Lilly.He and his co-writer want to have the freedom to write without the constraints of using game Lilly(understandable)and they decide to ignore the Telltale version(very disappointing).

    Plan C: New novel about comic Lilly on the way so Telltale have to remove any previous mention that game Lilly is the same Lilly i.e her character bio and the "Woodbury Bound" achievement/trophy.Kirkman now says that we have two differnt Lilly's thus comic,novels and game can stay canon and will still exist in the same world.

    Hope that makes it clear.

    I liked the original idea of the game interacting more with the comic but I accept that things have now changed. At no time do we hear game Lilly or Larry mention that their surname is Caul, so no story conflict there.We now have two Lilly's in The Walking Dead with different surnames,no canon conflict.We also have a Molly in the game and comic who only share the same name.

    Unless Telltale decide to do more with their Lilly in future seasons it's up to individual players to decide what fate they want for her.

    A grisly end if you hated her or a much more pleasant fate if you liked her...

  • And also that there are many people having same names! For e.g there are two Billy in WD Comics ! One twin to Ben(sons to Donna nd Allen) / one Herschel 's son! So Lily problem is not much big issue! Both Lilyz I hate!!!! Though Comics one at least kills that Governor!!

  • I don't care what the novel said. I played the game with the intent that game Lilly was comic Lilly, (which who she was in the first place) and that's how it's going to stay. Unless TT brings her back for season 2.

  • Everyone has a good or an evil Doppelganger.

    Was comic Lilly the good one?

    Comic Lilly does kill a mother and her baby so...

    Neither Lilly's actions are "good" but I'm sure people will have their own opinion on who and what is worse and why they did what they did.I don't think it's as simple as which one is the evil or good one(or you ignore and deny the novel and decide it's the same Lilly,as some choose to do)
