Shawn is a comic book character as well. That's why you can't save him in ep. 1 no matter what
Yeah, well it is kinda sad. Lilly's story in the game was the perfect background of both the book and the comics. Kirkman turned a potentially strong character and story into a "meh" situation... I don't think that was a smart choice on his part. He could've done it easily. Just mention what Kenny does to her father and it's fine. In all players' choices Kenny is the one to kill Larry. She doesn't have to remember about Lee or Carley/Doug... He could've just mentioned the accident later, without being specific as to who Lilly killed. Seriously it wouldn't have been that difficult.
Am I imagining things or are people much more supportive of Lilly now that ep.3 is in the past? Especially after some of them realized what an asshole Kenny is I'm definitely sure I see more people posting stuff like "I like Lilly, she was cool".
