Lilly /Larry had control of the group. She's the brain he's the brawn
2 males, a bleeding boy and his mother come charging in.
You dont even make introductions and her authority is challenged with Duck.
Kenny immediately starts throwing his 'I have a family to protect' weight around and apparently assumes command.
Group rules no one into our compound
In comes Lee/Kenny and 3 stangers (unforseeable; but could be seen as a breach of rules by Lily).
Stress of rationing food is on her mind.
The 2 men who she didnt even want into the group kill her father (whether you help or not, thats how she sees it)
Now she's a female in charge of a group with 2 able bodied men, one is clearly fighting her for the leaders's spot. And she's all alone.
On top of everything else; she suspects a traitor
'that bitch' who wont listen to her commands from Ep1 is now mouthing off to her.
Kenny has a smart remark for every decision she makes for the group (Ben on watch)
Now on top of it all, the traitor has brought the bandits right to their doorstep and caught them totally off guard-everything she was thinking is confirmed;
'no one is listening to me; we're getting lazy; this kinda shit is gonna get us all killed; we need to nip this in the bud and make an example' type thinking is probably boiling through her
Now granted, you catch more flies with honey than vinegar. Lily doesnt even know what honey is. She's military; she doesnt deal in small talk and civility; she expects people to follow orders (probably like she's used to). But her shining trait is that she was GROUP-oriented, unlike Kenny who wouldnt think twice turning tail and leaving them all to die as long as his family is alive.
Kenny's constant smart remarks, heard within group range and always in Lee's ear totally undermined her efforts of unifying the group under her command.
