Instead they really ran him through the mill. Devestating. Telltale were such bastards putting the "Batman and Robin" detective sequence right before Duck's death, they did that purely to make us like Duck so we'd be gutpunched when he went
(They did a similar thing with Carly - shortly before her death you can have a conversation where she implies she'll meet up with Lee for some hanky-panky later. This is to titillate you and make you predict a romance, so you'll be gutted when she gets shot in the head minutes later.)
Duck's death was also the saddest moment in the series for me.
Like you I saw Lee's death coming long before it happened. The moment it was revealed that he was a convicted murderer, I knew they were going to go for the redemption storyline where he ends up dying to save someone else. (Clem)
That isn't to say that I wasn't sad when Lee died of course. I admit to crying at the end, but I thought Duck's death was the saddest moment of the game.
