    Really interested to hear about some of the hidden things you guys have found in Ep 3.

    Spoilers Obviously.

    So far Ive heard its possible to not shoot Duck and leave his walker self in the wilderness. Anybody discovered anything else so far?

    apparently if you're silent when you're supposed to get Kenny to stop the train some... interesting stuff happens.

    Alright here are the Easter Eggs I've found so far, some may or may not be Easter Eggs or not but hey.

    Here's my Youtube channel, with a Video of all of these!
    http://www.youtube.com/user/SYNHxSWTOR?feature=mhee

    And the next link is directly to the video
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S0_E9v68mKc&feature=youtu.be

    1. At the beginning of the episode, there is a crashed helicopter in the drug store with a pilot in it. The pilot looks a lot like the pilot in Telltales Jurassic Park episodic game, who has a very untimely death.

    2. When Lee is investigating for who was taking supplies, Duck is going to be Lees 'Ward' referring Lee to Batman and himself as Robin.

    3. A funny one was when Duck finds the chalk lines near the motor inns gates and asks Lee for a hi-5. If Lee gives him one the update will say "Duck thinks you are totally awesome."

    4. When you get on the train and find the clipboard, there is a magazine in the back with an image on it. I'm not sure what it is but it looks familiar. Anyone else know?

    5. The last one I found was the best. When you go up to Kenny in the control car to tell him to stop the train, when you get to the following dialogue:

    Stop. The. Train.
    You're in denial!
    This isn't about Duck.
    ...

    Choose the ... option. Kenny will speed up the train, the same option will appear again, choose ... again. He will push you out of the car and lock the door. Lee will walk back to the box to find it covered in blood and bits of flesh.. and Clems hat on the ground. Than Duck will walk towards you as a walker. In shock Lees mouth is gaped open, Duck comes to him and Lee falls out of the Box car. The "You are dead" screen pops up.

    Five sounds epic, though I'm not sure if I really want to try it. I'm not sure how two is an easter egg.

    Also...BANANG!

    2 and 4 I don't consider Easter Eggs IMO.

    This is one game where I'm more pleased not to run across Easter eggs or pop culture references. It just isn't the right atmosphere for it and would detract significantly from the world they're trying to create.

    I love 3. Now I regret hiding the story notifications.

    Maybe if you choose to go with Lily you get a text screen that says, "You and Lily joined up with the Governor who promptly shot you dead because he didn't like the way you looked at him. Game Over"

    Not really, but one interesting thing is you can leave Duck in the woods instead of you or Kenny shooting him.

    Except for Batman references?

    Yeah 4 wouldn't really be an Easter Egg, I just found it to be an interesting choice. I debated about putting it in my list. Now the Robin thing was just a small one, since it is referencing outside of the Walking Dead universe I would consider it to be. Kind of like WoW doing that Mr.T event, I would consider that an Easter Egg IMO

    Excepting nothing, that whole "detective" sequence felt weird and contrived, but I never play point and clicks.

    4. After Lilly kills someone, if you take the option to take her with you on the RV you will reach the train, once you have the option to get back into the RV to get the pencil, Lilly will have broken out of her binds and steal the RV. She will offer you to go with her if you have sided with her in the past. One of the options is "Okay." Lilly tells you to go out and get Clem, and when you do she drives off.

    5. The last one I found was the best. When you go up to Kenny in the control car to tell him to stop the train, when you get to the following dialogue:

    Did anyone else think the zombie pilot in the pharmacy was a reference to Pearl Jam's "Do the Evolution?"

    Yeah, but it's not really...I dunno...I mean, it's one thing for WoW to put in something like that and have it be an in-joke, because WoW is a fantasy world. But The Walking Dead takes place in the real world, where Batman & Robin is actually a thing. It's just like you and I talking about Batman & Robin. It's not an in-joke, we're just talking about it.

    I can agree with that :) I actually just kind of made a point like this on another thread. But none the less its still interesting.

    I admit, I laughed so hard at that conversation.

    Duck: "...and I'll be your ward, Dick Grayson!"
    Lee: "..."
    Duck: "That's Robin."
    Lee: "I KNOW WHO IT IS!"

    Lee's complete intolerance for playing Batman & Robin just cracked me up. But, Duck won me over in the end with the high-fiving and the Superman pose.

    I want someone to make a mod for when Lee is investigating, they change the character mesh of Lee and Duck to have Batman and Robin costumes :P

    This happened to me except I didn't choose "...". It can happen if you are generally too passive about getting him to stop the train. You either have to get him to face the fact that Duck is dying or fight him. If you beat around the bush too much, even without choosing "..." at all, he'll push you out of the car and you get that scene.

    Oddly enough, when you do get him to stop the train, Duck doesn't turn for another like 10 minutes and even then you/Kenny shoots him before he actually does anything. So idk how not stopping the train causes him to instantly become a walker and gives him enough time to kill everyone.

    Dear Telltale. You screwed up.

    You said Duck was Dick Greyson, when everyone knows its Tim Drake Jason Todd? that dies painfully. :D

    Whaat? Tim Drake dies? Tim Drake doesn't die. Jason dies. (adjusts nerd glasses)

    Ah it doesn't matter anyway. Last I heard, they're all alive again. :p Stupid superheroes. They don't know how to stay dead like a TWD character.

    There's a sign outside the warehouse in the station at the end, where you meet Omid and Christa. It's one of the company's brand that says "Ray's Auto Parts..." it remembers me where Biff fixes his car.

    Maybe I'm wrong and it wasn't existed any "Ray's Auto Part" on Hill Valley but I think it did. :)

    The Jurassic Park jeep actually annoyed me. To the best of my knowledge the jeep wrangler is not now nor has it ever been fielded by the U.S. armed forces. It took away from the "reality" of the game.

    This isn't a big deal, it certainly wouldn't have ruined the game for me but I still wish it wasn't there.

    Not really easter eggs, but a couple of things I didn't catch on my first playthrough:

    The box behind Clem's shooting gallery has "premium LCD screens" written on it - another reminder of how much the world has changed.

    You can just make out an image under the dirt on Omid's sweatshirt - he clearly loves his home state.

    The Jeep Wrangler has been used by the U.S. military since World War II.
