Definitely. I see where you're coming from about him and Jolene - I'd go insane too, if I lost everything and everyone in such a short span of time.
But I don't know, he just seemed off to me. With Jolene, you could really tell how hurt she was about losing her daughter and how much she had meant to her; there was no doubt about it. But with the stranger, he just didn't sound all that concerned about his children. He talked constantly about his wife's feelings, and how he hurt HER so bad by losing the poor kid in the middle of a zombie apocalypse. I mean, it's nice that he loves his wife and all, but there wasn't a single "I miss my boy" or anything, or how his children might have felt throughout the whole mess - it's like the only reason he felt bad about losing his son was because it upset Tess, and when he talked to her head in the bag, it's like he just wanted Clementine to replace Lizzy for her, because she
loved the kids.
Buut I digress.
All my Lilly hate is resurfacing in this thread now, lol. Everything in your post more or less sums up what I thought of her during my first playthrough. Her attitude can be justified if she was actually a good
leader, but half the time she's just as clueless as anyone (if not more), yet she's barking orders left and right like she owns the place. And the part I really can't stand is why people seemed to listen to her. She didn't do anything except stir up drama.
I mean, yes, it was useful to know someone had been stealing supplies, but she was really blowing the whole situation out of proportion (no, Lilly, stealing supplies is not
the same as cutting your throat while you sleep. Shooting someone's brains out might be, since death is more or less instantaneous). Throwing accusations based on nothing like that wouldn't have helped anyone, and for god's sake, no matter who it was they really didn't deserve an execution.
It was nice when Carley finally stood up to her, since no one else seemed to be able to tell her to just shut up and sit down; I also thought she was being waay too kind with the "scared little girl" comment. Granted, she did get shot in the face before she could say any more (and wow
, talk about a fucking overreaction), but someone really needed to tell her to stop being a bitch and help out more.
