  • It's just getting personalty down tight, I mean what would Nate do, if he sees a pretty woman, around 20, with no one holding guns and there only being like for kids around the age of 15, we all know he wants his tail and all but what would he really do that that scene, and then there is easy stuff like Kenny would not like anyone he meets around Episode 4, so I have Lee, Clem, Ben, Kenny, Christa and Omid down pretty well. I am just asking what would Nate do the scenario above.

    Hmm... I've seen some people say that Nate might be a rapist, but honestly I don't think that he is. I believe Nate is a bit of a perv, and if he were hitting on someone it would take alot of "no"s and "leave me alone"s to have him go away, but I don't think that he'd force himself on anyone.

    Have you read my analysis posts for Nate? I think they might help you out. Here.

  • Okay, I will read that, but we really do not know for sure what he would do, maybe he would do nothing, maybe he would do something, that is why everyone likes him, we just do not know.

    As long as you try your best I'm sure you'll do fine. :)

  • Alright, because in that situation I am thinking he would take advantage of it, I mean he is the man with the gun, no one else has guns, and the way he talked about getting tail is the only way to show you are a man is what tips me off a bit,

  • Molly and Realistic Survivors

    An interesting thing that has been said by some fans is that Molly is too unrealistic for the game and doesn’t fit the tone that had been established up to that point. The possible reasons for this mentality are:

    [LIST=1]
    [*]In comparison to the other characters, she seems more at ease with dealing with the apocalypse. This isn’t to say that she finds her living conditions easy or stress free, but she does seem to be more adaptable and accepting of her situation.
    [*]Her “Badassness" (Note: A persons being dubbed as “badass" is subjective, but she has been referred as such in the past). While the other characters fight to survive in a way the the majority of people can relate to and see themselves doing, Molly’s survival skills and equipment are more atypical than previously seen in the game. Such as her ability to easily go from building to building, her unique signature weapon, and her (sightly) superior fighting skills.
    [/LIST]

    With these two qualities, its understandable that she would stick out in people’s minds. But does that make her an unrealistic survivor?

    No. Here’s why.

    In real life there are people who have the ability to do things and react to situations that others can’t. It doesn’t make them abnormal, it just makes them different. Here’s an example:

    In 2011, when the tsunami hit Japan, a man named Hideaki Akaiwa took in upon himself to save not only his family, but also other people that he could find. He did this by putting on a wetsuit and swimming in the dangerous water and damaged homes to save people.

    What he did was amazing and something many people couldn’t do. Is he too “Badass" to exist? Does his mentality not fit the “tone" of life? Of course not. Though this may seem like an extreme example to use, it does show that different people act in various ways in any given situation, some of which are more incredible than others.

    Molly’s behaviour isn’t unique to her, there must be many people in the apocalypse that act as she did. She just stands out more because she’s the only one in the story that we see acting this way.

  • Add more to your point above.

    I believe in the zombie apocalypse the badasses would be the first to go. So seeing as episode 4 is barely over 3 months in I didn't think she was too unrealistic, but I could see what she does leading to her downfall. Whether it be over confidence in fighting walkers or misjudging a building when she jumps. Hell Lee was a badass and look where that got him.

    ...You know, when I first read this I didn't agree with you. But thinking about it, I actually understand what you mean.

    Why are characters like her considered badass in the first place? One of the reasons is because they put their lives in danger or pull stunts and survive spectacularly. But if they're always putting their lives in danger they'll eventually get hurt or die.

    The only way "badasses" would survive long is they were careful and smart about what they were doing, and even still they would be more likely to die sooner than "non-badasses" because of all the risks they take.

    Molly is smart and she isn't that reckless, but I can see her falling to her death one day.

    Her getting overwhelmed so easily by zombies in Ep4 if not saved proves your point.

  • Roman and Revenge

    There are people who are concerned about Roman appearing in Season 2, since it is very likely that Shel and Becca will be appearing also. They believe that Roman will attempt to kill them if he sees them again. This is a reasonable assumption, after all Becca does say that Roman told everyone that he would come after them if they left.

    But are their fears accurate? Will Roman really try to kill them if he sees them again? Before an answer can be attempted, it must be discussed how Roman would see Shel and Becca again.

    Roman would not want to move what remains of his group. Even though Shel and Becca left with the RV, and Shephanie tried to steal from them, the group still has enough food, medical supplies, and a safe place to stay. Therefore, Roman wouldn’t be able to see Shel and Becca again, unless offered a safer place for his group to live. Offered by Tavia.

    If Roman chose to leave, he and his group would be in the same settlement as Shel and Becca. Which means that he would have an opportunity to kill them if he wanted to.

    But would he?

    If we look at how he acted in Shel’s story, we see that he never killed anyone because he wanted to. He always felt it was necessary for the foreign man or Stephanie to die. Of course time changes people, as see as how Roman when from being somewhat relaxed to very strict, so he could go from kill only when necessary to killing for personal reasons.

    This is what I think would happen. Roman sees Shel and Becca and becomes furious. He wouldn’t kill them though, instead he goes up to them and tells them that he will not allow them to do the same thing to this community as they did to his group. He’d say that if they even moved wrong that he would kill them for it. And then he’d watch Shel and Becca and wait for them to mess up.

    It is also a possibility (Though how possible is subjective) that he would tell other people about what the two of them did so that, in Roman’s eyes, they would be prepared to deal with Shel and Becca if they tried anything. He would most likely tell the leaders of the community and not individual people, although he could go around telling everyone what happened. It all depends on how much of a threat he sees Shel and Becca to be.

    So would Roman want revenge? I think he would, but he wouldn’t act on it unless they did something to ruin their second chance.
