Why didnt Larry reveal Lee's past to the group?

Was he wanting to blackmail Lee in the future or something?

    An asshole to society's standards, but that's what you have to do if you want to survive. You risked lives bringing someone who might have been bit into the pharmacy. You could have had a mental disorder that made you happy when you murder people and that's why the senator was murdered. Had you not been snooping around in the St. John's business he would have food in his belly and not locked in a meat locker.

    Because of today's technology its unnecessary to be such an asshole. But when you have it all taken it away being selfish is the only way to live.

    No, Larry was just an asshole. He always goes out of his way to make people feel bad. That has nothing to do with survival, he's literally just a huge asshole.

  • "being selfish is the only way to live"

    Making people feel bad leads to suicide

    Suicide leads to more supplies to less people

    which leads to survival.

  • Larry was a brute. A brute with a few good intentions, but a brute nonetheless. He knew the group needed Lee, and kicking him out would have only made him twice as unpopular, to the point where someone else (Kenny probably) would confront Larry, resulting in one of them getting killed.

    Larry needed an excuse to get rid of Lee, and chances are he was biding his time until such an excuse emerged. You can bet if Larry had still been around when Lee was bitten, he would have unloaded both barrels of a shotgun into Lee's head without even hesitating.

  • Maybe he was gonna do the same thing Lilly did after she killed Carley, waiting for the right time to use it against me.

    Lilly herself basically says Larry was like that before the apocalypse even began. "It's just his way." He treats everyone like garbage not because he hopes they'll off themselves(and have less numbers for protection, less efficient supply gathering, watchmen, etc.) but because that's his personality. It's how he was before the apocalypse and how he was afterward. Additionally with his heart condition, it seems unlikely he would put more work on himself by getting rid of survivors when they could be doing work for him.

    He already attempted to murder Lee. Why bother going to such an effort to emotionally exterminate someone when he has already attempted to kill them outright? We've seen that he is a powerhouse, and potentially the strongest of all the survivors. He could easily kill anyone he didn't want, either through direct confrontation or at night while they sleep.

    Larry is not the kind of guy to go to such lengths to get rid of others when he can just brute force his way to victory.

  • There's no doubt Lilly loved her father, and even confessed at one point that he was "bitter and hateful," but it's also hard to deny she had a habit of turning a blind eye to Larry's worst vices. Not once did Lilly own up to the fact that Larry deliberately knocked Lee out cold at one point to be eaten alive, and it's clear from Carley/Doug's death beside the RV that she inherited her father's mean streak.

    Except Lee proved his worth by getting the meds to save his stupid ass.... so it wasn't even pragmatism, it was spite.

  • I was watching a documentary on the USAF's SR-71 Blackbird reconnaissance plane yesterday, and pilots trying to join the program are tested by psychologists to determine if they have the ability to get along with others for long periods of time.

    My first thought: Larry would fail the selection test. :p

    Larry is literally one of the biggest assholes in a game I've ever seen. He's so evil that his subtitle text is RED.
