The Demise of **** and **** - Stupid Idea By Them?

Okay, so your at the end of episode 1. You are holding the doors when I window is busted and a door collapses. Carley starts to shoot away and Doug goes to the window. Then something really stupid happens. Both of them get grabbed, and we know how it ends. Now we're back in the moment it's happeneing and I wonder.

1) Why didn't Carley stomp the walker grabbing her foot with her other and grab her ammo, therefore easily out of the situation? No, she just keeps clicking her empty gun instead of thinking.

2) Why did Doug decide it was a good idea to stand back facing the window about to be broken through insead of taking a melee weapon and holding them off that way? No, he justs stands in front of the "done" window back facing it. Why?

What do you guys think? Am I right, wrong, or overthinking it?

  • Carley failed a sanity/morale check; Doug made a bad snap decision (also, there weren't any weapons lying around that I saw.)
  • 1) Carley was panicking, who wouldn't? Her ammo is just out of reach, a walker grabbed her ankle, and there was like three more approaching her. Yeah Carley is a badass but that was only like the fourth day of the outbreak, she wasn't honed at that point.

    2) Not sure why Doug was facing the way he was, perhaps he was barricading the window, realized it was fucked, turned his back to it to run away and THEN got grabbed. Perhaps he was trying to do what Lee was doing at the door, support the window with his back and was overestimating the strength that the window had left. Regardless it would have made that scene a lot less cooler if Doug was facing the other way.

    Also do you honestly think someone like Doug would be capable of fighting walkers? I don't even think that idea would cross his mind.
  • Doug was busy staring at Carley, lol :D
  • I guess I understand that.
