What are your theories for Episode 3 Above The Law?

Pretty much what the title says. What do YOU think will happen in the next episode?

Here are my very plausible theories:

  • We'll find out what happened to AJ.

  • Kate will survived her injuries and learn martial arts from Jesus.

  • Clem will treat Javi like shit at first after finding out he's related to Mac Pricky Brando David.

  • Ava may appear with an afro.

  • Tripp will trip and tumble down some stairs.

  • Scary branding stuff may happen.

  • Gabe will be like "Hey I wanna be a man!" and volunteer to be branded to please his daddy, because he's stupid.

  • David will be oddly okay with the Javi and Kate situation because he's married a goat.

  • Clem may open up a little bit more to Javi or the others either after some shit happens, or she gets depressed and drunk on apple juice.

  • Eleanor will sprout floppy bunny ears and a tail, because she's too sweet for this world.

  • Gabe will try to woo Clem.

  • Gabe will get shot in the dick for having a Clem boner.

  • David punches Javi for shooting Gabe in the dick.

  • The slaughterhouse has been transformed into an opera house.

  • Likewise David has become an opera singer, and during the most critical parts of the episode, he'll sing his lines much to the confusion of Javi and the others.

  • Jesus will randomly stand with his arms out, holding doves or have lights glowing behind him, because religious symbolism!

  • Clem will get to kick David in the dick.

  • Javi will then kick David in the dick promptly afterwards.

  • Episode ends with the group getting an army of raptors to attack and eat the New Frontier.

Comments

  • My only theory is that none of your theories will happen. :p

  • AJs fate.

    Clem sneaks into Richmond to do whatever it is she originally wanted to go there for, assuming you didn't take her hostage and she's already in Richmond.

    We start to get a better picture of who NF is, with a faction being unhappy with the increasingly brutal methods but unwilling to speak out and risk the security they have in the group.

    More family drama and daddy issues, because soap opera.

    I literally want to see almost all of the things in the original post occur, though.

    • David kills Badger. Whether Clem watches/her opinion on it is determinant

    • Christa will appear, in a flashback or in present time

    • Wellington will be mentioned at some point in the New Frontier

    • Gabe will cry over Mari again

    • A few of David's lines would change depending on how you acted with Kate. But overall he'll treat you the same (e.g. "I'm sorry, but I have to keep you locked up on your first night, it's the rules", compared to "Don't complain, you're not going through something we all went through when we first joined". He'll treat you the same, but his attitude is different)

    • Telltale will add a puzzle this episode, since it's the easiest way to respond to feedback and compensate for the short episodes (hopefully it won't be as hard as the wind turbine puzzle)

    • Duck will be mentioned again, just to continue the tradition

    • Kate and Gabe are taken at the end. Rest of the season will revolve around finding Kate, Gabe and AJ again. Ridiculous cliffhanger ending.

  • •We'll find out what happened to AJ.

    With luck.

    •Clem will treat Javi like shit at first after finding out he's related to Mac Pricky Brando David.

    Yeah, just as well. Going to have to give Clem a reason to hate you in the next episodes, right?

    •Ava may appear with an afro.

    Heh.

    •Gabe will be like "Hey I wanna be a man!" and volunteer to be branded to please his daddy, because he's stupid.

    Ugh. Probably. If so, I might just give up on Gabe entirely. These are the same people that shot Mari. I'd defy being branded at every chance if in Javi's position.

    •Clem may open up a little bit more to Javi or the others either after some shit happens, or she gets depressed and drunk on apple juice.

    Hopefully in regards to both her relationship with TNF and her past in general.

    •Gabe will try to woo Clem.

    Don't know about wooing, but I'm almost certain he's going to try and do something with Clem if you took her to TNF, maybe set her free from imprisonment or something.

    •Jesus will randomly stand with his arms out, holding doves or have lights glowing behind him, because religious symbolism!

    Well, y'know...

    Overall, 8/10 theorycrafting, would hire as official writer.

  • That's what you say now >.> just wait until it actually does happen Agent, just you waaatch.

  • Gabe will be like "Hey I wanna be a man!" and volunteer to be branded to please his daddy, because he's stupid.

    I actually think this one may happend.

    If this does happen, this will be my reaction along with the many others that will join me:

  • edited January 26
    • Christa being a member of ANF
    • Kate surviving and being thorn in this triangle relationship between her, Javi and her husband
    • David freaking out, killing his people or atleast badger for shooting his wife and daughter and bringing his son in trouble
    • David finds out that Javi and Kate are a thing and freaks out again, killing other persons for his selfish reasons
    • Glabe being stubborn, dumb himself and joins his father's dumbass actions
    • Clementine coming back in any way like getting caught by the people of A new frontier or coming to rescue the group after David freaking out
    • AJ appearing out of nowhere and making a OMFG-shock-moment
    • Jesus becoming an enemy (because one of the producers said that only because we already know Jesus from the comics doesn't mean that we can trust him too much)
    • sad flashback that shows how Clementine got seperated from AJ
    • Opinion where you have to choose if you stay loyal to your brother and other family or to Clem (which will mostly end up with the players choosing little sweat pea over the family)
    • Get seperated from the family and find with Clementine another group that will help you to stop the evil plans of David or Jesus or both
    • Eleanor betraying the group
    • Tripp dying while being a hero
  • As you list every theory your theories become more and more insane which could be a way for you to tell us that you're descending into insanity.

  • We will get at least one shirtless scene, but it'll be for someone that nobody cares about.

  • We'll get death, walkers, speaking Spanish, gunshots and credits.

  • Fool, I was already insane >.>

  • We probably won't even get Spanish :(

  • That it'll suck.

  • I wouldn't say that. With David there it's more than likely to come up.

  • I have I've been thinking about for a while.

    The title for the episode is Above The Law. The New Frontier members in the game keep mentioning "justice", how taking out random settlements isn't their way, and stuff of that ilk. So maybe the New Frontier has some primitive justice system or something like that. Now, why Above The Law? Well, Javier, Kate, and Gabe are all family of David, so maybe David attempts to shield them from the laws the New Frontier impose and that obviously isn't going to go by people well like Badger and such. It's a thought though. I'd like to be right. I wouldn't know if this would apply to the other people in Javier's group.

  • Your theory has to be split into three! IT'S TOO BIG TO FIT INTO ONE EPISODE!

  • The slaughterhouse has been transformed into an opera house.

    Incoming musicals:

    "I Wanna Be a Man!" starring the greatest duo of all times, Gabriel Gabe Garcia and Gabe The Dog.

    "The Nightmare After Flashbacks", starring Cardboard Kenny, Fat Jane and Edith Who, performed with help of the famous Choir of Muertos.

    "Jesus On The Roof", starring Jesus and his extra coat.

    "Ties That Bind: Part 666", starring users of this forum.
