Considering how many threads have been made about Kenny in this forum, it's pretty safe to say he's a popular character, for better or worse.
With that taken into account, I can't help wondering how fans would feel about Kenny becoming the PC in Season 2...assuming he escaped from the walker hordes in episode 5.
Think about it for a moment. In terms of a natural progression from one season to another, Kenny would be an ideal for an upgrade from NPC to PC following Lee's death - more so than creating an entirely new PC from scratch, anyway. The fate of his family would also leave Kenny in the same basic state Lee was in at the beginning of the first game; a seemingly broken man with a tragic past. Just as the first season was about Lee's redemption amidst the zombie apocalypse, the second season could be about Kenny struggling to find a reason to live again, after the world has already taken everything from him.
One way or another, it'd definitely allow for an exciting opening to season 2, beginning just a few seconds after Kenny's final scene in episode 5. We'd immediately assume control of Kenny moments after he's saved Christa or shot Ben, and then aid him in his escape. He would subsequently join up with a new survivor group somewhere in Savannah.
This is just one idea among many ideas, but I just wanted to throw it out there for internet consumption.
