I sure hope not. There's been a lot of cool possibilities tossed around in this forum, and as ridiculous as it might sound, I'd hate to think Telltale would drop them just because "the fans thought of it first/the fans have predicted what we're going to do, and we've gotta keep surprising the fans." Decisions have been made under stranger circumstances.
I can understand the desire to go against your audience's expectations a little, but sometimes being obvious really isn't a sin. Sometimes it's the best way to go.
