As long as we're talking about the meat locker scene, did anyone else feel the scene with Kenny and Ben in the alley was a reprise of the meat locker but with Kenny changing how he felt? In the meat locker Kenny doesn't want take a chance on saving someone who was probably going to die, but with Ben he wants to put his life on the line for a longshot.
The weirder thing is depending on your choices, you can potentially one-eighty as well. I tried to save Larry on my first playthrough but when I got to the alley scene I figured Ben was as good as dead as soon as I saw the metal sticking through him. And it's possible that Clem still being in some sicko's hands was weighing heavy on my mind while at the Dairy Kenny was thinking about what was happening to Duck and Kat at the hands of the St. Johns. So now I was the one who just wanted to finish someone off while Kenny refused to accept that was the only way.
I didn't realize the potential for role reversal in those scenes but now it makes me think the alley was made in part to make you feel how Kenny may have felt about Lee in the meat locker if you tried to revive Larry.
Dude that is an AWESOME point! I already knew how Kenny felt, but wow... I never realized Telltale decided to put the bullet on us, maybe making us look bad.
I think Lee realizes the position he was in when he got back on the rooftop, his face kinda speaks "I had no idea...". It's also where he could say "He was a good guy. Some might not always agree... Maybe even me...". I guess it was a choice for certain players that didn't always see Kenny eye-to-eye, and it was an opportunity to allow them to understand Kenny's decisions.
The sacrifice for Christa could have also been seen as a 'reverse role'. You didn't want to risk your life, for you have family that needs you. Christa just potentially risked the group (as well as Kenny) before he could save his family.
The only difference is you don't gain a grudge against them xD.
Anyway, yeah, that is a very good point dude.
