Should Clem have a dog?
Does anybody else think giving Clem a dog would bring a different vibe to Season 2? I actually had this idea a few days ago, but I've hesitated putting it forward, because...let's face it, this is THE WALKING DEAD, the president and CEO of Pessimism Inc. If something horrible and sadistic can be done to a beloved animal, odds are they're going to do it. (Anyone remember the German Shepard from the Will Smith version of I AM LEGEND?)
On the other hand, what if Telltale gave the player the chance to DECIDE whether her dog lives or dies, albeit at a great cost? I'm reminded of DomeWing's suggestion about a torture scene with Clementine. Instead of having Clem physically tortured, why can't the villain - someone like Nate, maybe - threaten to kill Clem's dog if she doesn't reveal the location of whoever he's looking for?
(And no, Telltale, you DON'T get to murder the dog anyway even if Clem gives up her secret, just for the sake of twisting the knife in the player's gut. Check out Barry Levinson's WHAT JUST HAPPENED to see why that would be a very ill-advised move.)
