There was no medicine, the group had no weapons, and they were trapped. Lilly had plenty of time to say goodbye to Larry. I can understand why she didn't give up on him, if it were my father, I probably wouldn't have either, but the fact remains that Larry had been on the ground with no pulse, not breathing, for nearly a minute by the time Lee takes action. How many people is it acceptable to lose just for Lilly to be able to say goodbye? What if she gets bitten? What if Lee does? Even Clem was in danger. Is Clem's life worth Lilly saying goodbye? Because I sure as hell don't think so.
Kenny did handle the situation pretty poorly after the fact, like in the beginning of Episode 3. He really should have acted better toward Lilly and he went about the situation like an ass in my opinion, but he saved everyone in the meat locker. Precious seconds had already been spent trying to revive Larry with zero response. If Larry had come back, the entire group would have been wiped out just so Lilly could say goodbye. My Lee didn't let that happen. He didn;t let Irene turn when she was bitten, he kept reminding Kenny of the fact that Duck was turning and made him see what was actually happenening, and he didn't let himself turn to perhaps harm someone else in the future. He certainly wasn't going to let Larry kill everyone either.
I strongly recommend you to watch TV series - if you haven't seen them yet, so you can see how people (especially the group leaders) react to those who are about to lose their family members.
Yes, this is a Zombie Apocalypse
which means that it is for everyone, every single person is experiencing the same nightmare and NO ONE
is different than the other when you check hard situations, griefs, family issues, etc...
For further information, please watch Andrea&Amy scene and look for Rick's reaction.
For more further information, please watch Tyreese&Ben's mother scene- look for Carl's reaction.
A true leader respects people's feelings.
Different from these examples, in the game our group was
trapped in that meat locker I know, but I think even if a little boy like Carl could treat reasonable with family issues, a man with a family should have known better.
If it WAS the purpose
- blocking Larry from harming anyone in that meat locker
- I'd put some salt licks on Larry's different body parts to limit his possible zombie movements than instantly busting Larry's head. Because I HAVE A BRAIN which I can use whenever I need.
But if it was the purpose to kill him
, well it depends...
On the other hand LEEME
was there and I really pissed of when Kenny involved the situation which I was already taking care of.
Never mind, really you or I will not give up from our own angles on Kenny. So, lets end this discussion. Because you'll SURELY continue to defend a man(by saying he did everything for his family) who were DOING NOTHING
to search for an escape while LEEYOU were looking for an exit from that meat locker.
Pretty please try to remember his words while you were trying to examine the air went and please remember his answer when you asked him if he had any tools on himself suitable to use on those screws.
Last time I checked he was not looking like a mainstay of a family
who was dying by scratching the walls to save his family.
God forgive Kenny. I hope he has died in that alley (or in dark room) for the well of the universe.
