THAT, I didn't notice.
But yes, I believe in the IGN review they stated it was like 'passing the torch' on to the next character and a bit like teaching Clementine how to play an adventure game. They left us with a lot of possibilities to speculate. There is a lot of ambiguity and hinting in this episode in general, but in these last 10 minutes particularly.
