i say possibly because it can and no doubt wull be debated, think about it.

Had he not met Lee in the woods, he would never have told them about the fact that you dont need to get bit to turn, and im sure the St johns would have still came to the motor inn if ben was not around, meaning Lee would have still been in the situation with the meat locker, accept they would not have killed larry, Larry MAY have come back, and while everyone was confused about what the hell was going on, larry would have most likley bit lilly....and then who knows what would have happend after that?

But at the same time, i truley beleive that even the SMALLESTS thing can change the outcome of a day, week or a month....if that makes sense? so who knows.

  • Interesting idea. I never thought of that!

  • But at the same time, Ben KILLED HIS FAMILY. And hid it from him for days. And let walkers into Crawford, which killed Brie and nearly killed everyone else. I think Kenny's rage is more justified than not.

  • He could have saved everyones lives, or if Larry wasn't really dead, he could have still been a bonehead. Actually i think he'd still be a bonehead regardless, but at least he would have a little more recognition.

  • But then Carley would take someone else to defend the motor inn with her..wich changes everything

  • or maybe Larry was alive and If they never met ben till after the dairy then Kenny never killed Larry thus lily is still more level headed when she learns there is a traitor so she never kills carley....

  • I believe that Larry was dead, so in a way Ben saved everyone, odd as it to say that.

    Ben did NOT killed Kenny's family. In fact he delayed their inevitable deaths. Ben's stealing supply prevented the bandits from attacking for some time. Had he not done it, the bandits would have attacked the camp from the beginning, so the outcome is still the same, but sooner.
    Second, in Crawford Ben didn't intentionally let the walker in. I suppose the zombies weren't there when Ben took the axe and he didn't know the zombies were on the other side because if they were Ben wouldn't have taken it and he would have been killed right after he did it. Also Brie would have become a traitor along with the rest of the cancer survivals so i don't see anything wrong with Ben letting her die.

  • If i wasn't for Ben the group could have stayed at the inn and not have to worry about the bandits because they got their food from the dairy. So he ruined them in my opinion.

    That...doesn't really follow. How does Ben not being there = nothing happening to the dairy? Ben had almost nothing to do with the dairy being overrun and the bandits attacking.

  • If they never met Ben they wouldn't have been told that you come back from death as a walker even if your not bitten. Kenny wouldn't have been as scared as he was in the meat locker and would of acted more rationally. He could have helped Lee remove the vent instead of panicking about the probability of Larry reanimating.

    In my opinion Larry could have been revived, the same way Maggie was revived with CPR in the graphic novel and if Ben hadn't returned with Lee to the motor inn, Larry would have survived beyond the dairy farm and Lilly wouldn't have snapped and killed Carly. They wouldn't have been as vulnerable to bandit attacks as someone more suitable would have been on watch. They probably wouldn't of had to leave and go to Savannah since that was Kenny's plan and the majority were happy to stay at the motor inn and didn't want to go unless they knew where they were going to, including Clem.

    Personally I don't think Ben saved anyone. Rick's group went a lot longer than 3 months before they learned that is wasn't the bites that turn you and they did alright. They didn't learn about everyone being infected until they got to the prison. If the ST Johns shot Larry or shanked him before putting him in the meat locker then I would say Ben's info would have been life saving but considering Larry wasn't confirmed dead I would say the info caused more harm than good since it created panic.

    Come to think of it even if the group never met Ben Lee would have no doubt learned from Danny at Joleen's camp that you have to destroy the brain since he knew to shoot Joleen in her head. Danny seemed to know that people turn even if they don't die from being bitten that is why the cannibals were keeping their victims alive when they were feeding of them.
