think about it. clem spent probably HOURS(notice how it cuts to night time when lee wakes up) covered in zombie filth dragging lee inch by inch into a building(remember the zombies would just ignore them both) not knowing if he was alive yet or dead but holding onto that slim hope that he was.
damn...im depressed about this game again :/
You say she could drag him inch by inch knowing that the walkers would ignore them. Then why go through the trouble of dragging him into a building in the first place if walkers were no longer a concern? Why not just drag him to the side of the road, conserve her strength and wait for Lee to wake up if the walkers were no longer a threat? She didn't know Lee was bitten.
The guts camouflage trick doesn't last for ever it just buys time. The effect wears of eventually. The disguise is broken once a walker notices the person behaving like the living i.e moving differently, talking or panicking and it can wear of with sweat or rain. It is not plausible that she remained expressionless, quiet and avoided attracting attention. There were hundreds of zombies. Her higher functioning brain, attempting to close the shutter would have given her away for sure like when Lee and Molly were holding off the walkers in episode 4 when they were in the garage. Even if Molly and Lee had guts on them in that scene, using a car jack or trying to escape or hide would have attracted unwanted attention.
The end scene doesn't really take anything away from the game. The game was still a great adventure, but lets not make excuses for the infeasible. Yeah the walking dead is based on a comic but the walking dead comics do not use "comic logic" The Spiderman,Batman and the Darkness comics use comic logic. Kirkman's comic's are written realistically, using real life principles like physics,gravity,trajectory,velocity etc. He even does research on how much kick back a weapon would have for the person using it before he writes his stories.
