Besides, I don't think Clem even knows what's in the purse. No one does except for Carly. Lee probably clued into its contents when he saw Carly trying to reach for it.
Not really. Running over someones leg, trapping them, and causing them to get eating, is a whole lot different from standing back during an attack, not doing what you can't physically do/don't think to do, and seeing them be eaten. (Not to mention one's incompetence was used purposefully to set up a scene, while the other's is more like tying a characters' hands to make the game progress in the way the writers want it to.)
It's a survival situation, the fact their kids doesn't mean anything anymore. If they want to survive, they're gonna have to grow up fast.
But blaming someone for development forced inaction is like blaming Carley for not shooting the Andy in the head while he was trying to shove your face into the fence... It's Illogical, the game developers clearly made it that way for the situation with Lilly, (where inaction or action has real meaning In Game). Similarly, the situation with Doug and Carley was CLEARLY meant to be a Sadistic Choice. Clementine not interfering is less of an account of her character (as she has saved people before, and probably will do so again), and more of an account of the Developers not thinking of everything. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.ph...ksOfEverything
Duck DID get Shane Killed, Clem didn't get Carley killed, it's as simple as that. No emotions, no Fallacy driven "They're just kids!" excuse, just facts and observations.
