The game is meant to be canon and tie in with the comic's universe. Rick's journey isn't even 2 years in yet so Clementine can't be shown as a teenager if the game is to remain canon. Carl is still only 9. I'm confident that Clementine will still be 9 in episode 2. The only reason the 2nd episode jumped so far on was to catch up to comics, though it is still behind, it shows Lee's group in the heart of the ZA where there used to living in a world of zombies.After ep2 time moved on quite slowly. Ep3 was only a week after ep 2's ending. Ep4 seemed to be hours after ep3's ending.Ep5 was seconds after ep4's ending. In the walking dead comics time doesn't advance a great deal. The comics have been going for around 8 years, give or take and Carl has only had 1 birthday. The group have had 1 winter and we have seen 1 Christmas. If the game is to stay in tone with the comics it won't jump to far in the future and it definitely won't pass were Rick is in the walking dead time line in the same way that the TV show will never go ahead of the comics. Even though they change some things around the group in the show reach settings in the same sequence the group did in the comics e.g Atlanta,the camp,the road,the farm, the road, the prison, Woodbury.
