[Spoilers] Zombie Kenny in Season 2?

Sorry if this has been addressed, but I haven't seen it so far, so I thought I'd chance it.
I believe regardless of how Kenny dies, we aren't given the chance to shoot him. Could our new group (or old group, depending on how TTG runs things) run into a zombie Kenny in season 2?
I know that he was liked, generally, even if many didn't agree with him on all things. But he was a good guy, and even in our not-yet-completed game save where we side with Lilly on most things, Kenny still is begrudgingly kind to Lee.
I think it would be awesome, heartbreaking, and at least a bit shocking. (Maybe he takes down a new character early on?)

What would you guys think? Are you hoping for a zombie Kenny in S2?

  • Kenny better be dead. It would be way to unlikely and impossible for him to survive since he's cornered with walkers coming at him on both sides in the alley, or he's stuck in a pitch dark room filled with walkers with no knowledge of any doors around.

    I like the guy but if he's alive I'll be very disappointed in Telltale.

    The room he was in should have a exit/enterance... whats the point of building one otherwise without entrance or exit? walkers could be blocking it though

  • It's entirely possible for Kenny to have survived the dark room. The man knows how to open a door. The alley scene? Much less likely (but still possible!)

  • I had no idea he was listed as lost! That's very interesting. I wonder if he dies in one, but not the other? I guess Kenny could be one of the people in the field, along side S2 character? Who knows. I honestly thought he was confirmed dead! Haha!

    I was so sure he was dead before this conversation that I hadn't given it much thought, but after re-watching his "death scenes", I have to say:

    I think it's more likely he survived the alley way because it's a bigger open area and he has more places he could go, and there's better lighting, but I think that's more a personal opinion.
    But I also think we may be possibly meeting a one-armed Kenny in Season 2, if it's based on our choices in Season 1. I saved Ben 'til the end, and Kenny put him out of his misery in my game.
    I saw some things I felt were interesting and relevant to point out, and screen capped 'em.

    First image is Ben on the ground, no new blood on the ground (though not quite the same angle), second image is Kenny clearly getting bitten, and last image is the horde macking on Ben and a fresh blood spot/trail leading to the end of the alley way, where Kenny was heading. So upon review, I think he may have lived long enough to chop an arm off, at least in the version I played. :D

    He wouldn't be able to see an exit door in the darkness. It's incredibly more likely he'd run into a walker or a group of walkers then a door that happens to be empty of walkers, when he's running away from the group he was fighting off.

    The chances of him running into a door to leave the building or an empty room safe from walkers rather then bumping into more walkers drawn to his gunfire is very unlikely. Kenny surviving EP5 requires a Deus ex machina scenario, and those always seem cheap and viewed as bad writing.

    You still don't know he was bitten bro, I saw it too. But if you look at his face, it wasn't like a flinch or one of pain, it was just kinda shock, like "Holy shit, too close. Personal space zombie, thank you!" In the third picture it looks more like a leaf. However, if you look into the alleyway, you only see the walkers in one pile, after Ben's body. In the building, he already sees many windows. He could break through a window and use it to climb down to the next floor or something, but there was a way out as of escaping the walkers.

    However, I do think surviving the alley was more plausible, I mean just look at all the windows(and possibly doors).

    Okay, just looked at the second picture again, it looks like Kenny is using his arm to block the zombies head, it looks like the zombie's chin is above is arm, so it didn't bite him(as far as i know).

  • All I know is if he escaped that way, he'd of had walkers coming after him. However, all the walkers are going one way.

  • @Mornai said: The alleyway is less plausible than the dark room, as the room very likely had a door to escape from and was large than the alley, which had walkers swarming in from both exits.

    Kenny is the only survivor whose fate is listed as "lost" and not "dead" or "died". If it were to be a confirmed death, it would have read "Kenny was killed by the walker herd trying to save Ben" or something to that effect.



    I think that the end of episode status pretty much confirms that he is undead.

  • No... It would be weird running into Kenny... It worked for chuck (not exactly the same as he wasnt a zombie) because he died saving Clem after bens cowardice. And it would cheapen the emotions I feel for Kenny and his bravery. But that being said I'm not against it with vengeance I just don't think it should happen...
