I think someone should have thought to tie a tourniquet around his upper leg first, but couldn't figure out if there was an option to do it.
I didn't side with Lily or Kenny in the meat locker. I hate both of them (well, I hate Kenny by association with his retarded devil-spawn, Duck) and didn't want to do anything that would result in their being grateful to me. I think Kenny was in the right, but I could not agree with him. Larry was obviously dead at that point - I felt he had a 0% chance of returning and Lily was simply being selfish by not giving her consent.
In episode 1 I gave Irene the gun. The reasoning here being that taking another human life is wrong in all cases except in taking your own. Since I could not kill her and she wanted to die I let her take her own life. It was actually NOT a smart idea to give her the gun, though, as people who are about to commit suicide become untethered from traditional morality and it was possible she could have turned the gun on others first.
I killed both brothers because both were guilty of the same crimes and deserved equal treatment. It's hard to call it justice without a society to protect but the notion that murderers should be met with equal punishment still clung to me.
I felt the same way as you with chopping off the teacher's leg. This is TWD, how else are you supposed to get him out of the bear trap?
