We should just blame Larry for everything, then, since he refused to calm down and had the heart attack in the first place.
Or maybe the St. Johns, since they're the ones who put Larry in the high-stress situation.
Basically, find every way imaginable to deflect any real blame from Lilly. It's not her fault that she makes awful decisions and had her own ruthless pragmatism used against her by Kenny. She continues to be played up as a poor, helpless victim by all her defenders.
No accountability. Unless you're Kenny; then it's all your fault.
And yes, Kenny is incredibly flawed. Very incredibly flawed. But his flaws are balanced by a hard-working determination and love of family that's only rivaled by Lee. In fact, determination and love of family (Clementine) are basically the defining features of both Lee and Kenny. It's what makes them such a good team.
