I never hated Kenny, or even disliked him. I mean, yeah, he did something he shouldn't at the meat locker, but after that in Ep3 he doesn't seems to hate ya. And damn, after what happened to his family... He needed a friend. And since Lilly's just gone nuts, why not?
Is really cool when, at the Train, you can cool him down and avoid a fight. I guess people are just trying to stay firm with their belief, y' know? Proud and that stuff.
Of course there're cases and cases.
