And I think Ben would have never said he was the traitor if Lilly was still around, so even if she stayed she would still be a paranoid phyco. Thank god she left is all I'm saying. She also stole the RV, our one chance of escape if walkers arrive.
And that's a typical Lilly fan response. Kenny removes a threat which could have led to everyone dying and smashes the head of a man who was probably dead anyway. The last heart attack he had, we had to risk our lives to get him his stupid medicine, right before he punched us in the face. And in the meat locker, Larry was under a lot more stress than before, his heart was also probably damaged. I don't know where you get this idea that the second you start feeling weak, Kenny will leave or kill you. And at least I know Kenny's on my side in my canon, he's always looked out for me. Sure he isn't as helpful to you if you risk his and his families lives for a old bastard but I wouldn't be surprised at that
Also Yami, you say that the group is like a family. Lilly kills a innocent member of the family but its okay because the group was "rotten". She then steals the family RV and leaves everyone to die. And you would invite her back first chance you got? Seems legit
Ben didn't just make one mistake though, the deal with the bandits was an ongoing thing. And even in spite of the bandits attacking the motel, Lilly does have a point that the theft of those supplies can get somebody killed. Nobody's restocking store shelves or producing things like antibiotics; the low-hanging fruit in that regard is going to be gone pretty quick. If somebody steals things like your food stocks or medicine during a survival scenario, that's potentially a death sentence whether it be starvation or infection.
Both Kenny and Lilly risk the group's safety for their family; the threat from Larry could've been mitigated pretty easily, he was in a prone position. We never see a Walker reanimate without some warning, etc. compare this to Duck who's being held by Katjaa (hell, Kenny does essentially get the entire group killed if the train isn't stopped).
From a survival point-of-view, both the Lilly/Kenny options suck. They're the tin-man and the scarecrow, Lilly's heartless (but atleast knew enough to instruct the group) while Kenny's clueless.
