Well... I have no clue how the main characters made it to episode 4. Honestly, wth were you thinking when you put Lee through the bite & Clem incident. Why is everyone on Lee's ass about Clem? They don't give a damn about each other and putting Clem in the hands of Creepy Mahoney The Survivor Stalker is a waste of good plot.
Sadly, the only reason I would even attempt to go further is just to see how they treat the corpse of Lee. Clem seems to have enough fans and by far Lee is the only one with pure and decent intentions. You don't need a degree to raise an eight year old girl. Lee has two left feet but that is a far cry from the heinous outlook of Clem without him.
Kenny is a survivor, no doubt, but he only cares about himself. All that guilt he laid on Lee in episode four is indicative of "I'm outa something good to write". Pure waste of everyone's time.
Ben is immature and afraid. He feels lonely and quite unmatched in the "Thirty Something survival party". He is trying but fails at everything. I hardly believe he negotiated with bandits with any prospect of success.
Molly is cool. Her character totally made sense. She gave the group the added personality and skills for a higher survival rate.
I don't trust either Omid or his lying woman. Now, it doesn't even interest me that they are hiding her pregnancy... who cares!?! But, I am very concerned over the interest in Clem (nice touch).
Vernon turned out to be a jerk and had no business trying to psyche Lee whatsoever. Plot or no...it was lame and did not foreshadow Clem's disappearance. Again, not really interested in redemption from this character because everyone knows Vernon is as selfish as Kenny.
You mad Bro?
I know the story isn't really about Lee... It's all about Clementine. She is just too young to carry the story forward without her new world guardian, Lee. She will harden after accepting her parents death. (Please don't pull them out of thin air, that would be silly.) Lee is the only character credible enough to manage Clem.
Ok...I'm done. Thanks for asking how I felt after ending Episode 4. (LOL)
