Nobody sided her on the theft issue in the RV, which added on to her stress since her only kin and supporter in the group's gone.
I don't think she'd run off with Veron's group... You should remember her reaction if you chose to leave Beatrice to the Walkers and when Kenny bragged about that.
But I think at the end of it, she felt abandoned and lonely - she couldn't trust anyone in the group any longer and so she chose to take the high road.
The high road? Abandoning six people to die? Most of which who put their lives on the line to keep her ass alive. Two of which were children. (She didn't know Duck was bitten.) That's bullshit. The high road would have been leaving the R.V. She wants to run away? I understand. On my first play through when she got loose and said she's leaving, I told her to go. I didn't want her in the group, she didn't want to be in the group anymore. Fine. It's broad day light, there's no walkers in the immediate area, she'd have a chance.
But then she has to go and take the R.V. too, put everyone else's lives in danger because she's a fucking coward. Hey, have you ever counted how many walkers Lilly kills onscreen? Here, I'll give you guess. It rounds up to ZERO
. That's because she never puts herself at risk. It's why she didn't want to leave the drug store, why she didn't want to leave the Motor Inn despite having no way to deal with methed up rapists attacking us, it's why Ben is on watch instead of her in episode three since there's people shooting back now. And it's why she takes the R.V. She's a fucking scared little girl, just like Carley said. Just wanted to snuggle up with her daddy in her hidey hole while everyone else died to keep safe.
You really think she gave a shit about the woman in the streets in episode three? The first time you meet her she was yelling at Carley and Glenn for not letting FIVE
people get eaten in the same street outside the same pharmacy. She was just picking a fight with Kenny. Had Kenny shot that girl she probably talk about she's not surprised Kenny jumped at the opportunity to shoot someone in the head. It's probably the same reason she objects to taking from the station wagon, to spite Kenny. She still does take from it though, even if Lee and Clementine refuse.
Lilly felt abandoned and lonely? Yeah, I agree, but it's her fault. Fucking months went by and she never even tried to make friends with anyone. She doesn't trust anybody because she refuses to. No matter what anyone says or does, she simply refuses to trust anyone under any circumstances (great trait for a leader to have by the way). So it's no wonder she's fucking sad and alone in the end, she brought it on herself.
Answer me this. Why does Lilly hate Carley? Why does she insist Carley's a traitor? What has Carley done to earn that? You talk to Carley before the bandit attack and she doesn't has anything against Lilly, she says she's worried about her for god's sake. There's no reason Carley and Lilly can't be friends except because of Lilly. She views Carley as the enemy, even though Carley really hasn't done anything to Lilly. The only reason I can think of is because once, way back in Macon, Carley disobeyed Lilly and saved five people's lives. People who in turn saved her father's life.
Carley didn't have any family in the group and she didn't wind up alone and abandoned, probably because she doesn't have the stunted social skills of a four year old and can make friends with people she's not related to. So does Doug and Mark. Fucking Christa gives you a speech about how she'll leave if she doesn't like what she sees, then ends up sticking around the whole time!
But if you need anymore proof that Lilly was out for no one but herself, just look at how she acts to Lee if he's supportive of her. You can agree with everything she says, take her side on everything and agree to come with her with when she takes the R.V., and she still ditches your ass the second you go to get Clementine. You could have proved yourself trustworthy to her a million times over, and she still doesn't trust you. If you agree to come with her she sounds shocked because she always assumes everybody is out to get here, and then leaves because she thinks you must be lying to her, even if you never have before.
Flip that around with Kenny and you get the opposite. If you always agree with Kenny and support every stupid thing he wants, he outright refuses to let Lee go after Clementine alone. If he's the only one he tells Christa and Omid to take the boat and if they don't make it back by nightfall to leave without them. Kenny can be selfish asshole a lot of the time and does some supremely stupid shit over the course of the story, but he's not Lilly. If you treat Kenny like shit he ditches you, only the come around later when you get back. You treat Lilly badly, she tells you she was thinking of killing you when your back was turned.
Lilly is an amoral sociopath who only sees people as tools to be used to protect herself. You can blame Larry's shitty parenting for fucking up his daughter's life, but even Larry once showed he can make friends when he charms Brenda St. John. That's one more instance of trying to get along than Lilly ever demonstrated. And Lilly's not fucking five, she's a grown woman. Larry said it himself, she can make her own friends. She chose not to, and in the end she's surprised she's alone? Fuck her.
The ironic thing is if Lilly was just ever so slightly a better person, she'd probably would have ended up with the R.V. anyways. Telltale could have changed the scene where she escapes to have Lee talk her down if they were on good terms. Once the train was working Kenny ditched the R.V. and most definitely wouldn't want Lilly on the train with them. So the natural solution would be to leave Lilly and the R.V. behind. But that's not what happened, because Telltale decided that's not the kind of person Lilly is. She's not the kind of person who ever considers other people's lives before her own.
Sorry for these long rants. It's just I've played the game from the start to finish like ten times and if I've noticed one constant, it's Lilly doesn't care about anyone but her and her father. From Episode one to episode three. It's always about her and her father. She always insists otherwise, but her actions speak louder. I think part of the reason she liked her father is he made her look better by comparison. He can act like an asshole and do unpopular shit and then she can back peddle and pretend like she disagrees when he's not around so she doesn't look like the bad guy. But it's just an act. Once Larry's gone she ends up doing even worse than what he did.
No amount of hugging is going to change that about Lilly, she's always going to be that way. How Kenny, Ben and even to an extent Christa treats Lee can change if you change. Not Lilly for the most part. Best case scenario your a useful tool, worst case scenario you're the evil serial murderer who killed her dad. Sadly, there doesn't seem to be a whole of difference between the two in Lilly's eyes.
