I have the same issue. I had no intention of allowing Larry to throw Duck out but saw no cause for making an already tense situation worse. I told Kenny to reason with him and when that still didn't work I stepped in threatening to stop Larry by force.
Kenny and Katjaa both thanked me later, Kenny even going so far as to say we sure told that old man (or something along those lines). I consoled him about Shawn and generally was left feeling he was my closest ally among the group. Even in the preview for the next episode Lilly was going on about how I always had it in for her dad and such.
Yet, the stats showed me siding with Larry and in ep.2 Kenny is antagonistic towards me frequently and states that I'd chosen to side against him when he and Duck needed my support. Much the same as the others in this thread by the end of ep.2 he and I seemed to be at odds. Though throughout the episode I argued for cooperation between him and Lily, both of whom seem to see this as a slight, and sought to help Lily with her father before condemning him.
Not criticizing that bit merely saying that it undoubtedly lead further to our falling out at the end of the episode.
Not to mention when I needed him to help me against Danny St. John he hesitated and Lily instead came charging in to save me. (I'm assuming this is due to my choice to help Lily with her father instead of our running disagreements though I'm not certain.)
As far as him being more negative as some have said he seems. I will say that it's been three months, food is strained, and pretty much everyone seems more understandably frayed.
In case this is relevant I've been playing on the xbox. I also play with all notifications off so I may be missing something that's made more clear with them on. I'm not certain how informative they are.
