But Lee never told Clem..

he loved her. I'm VERY new to the game but have absolutely fallen for it. Why didn't we ever get the option to tell Clem that we loved her? That's all no big deal..just wondering.

  • After playing the full season 1 AND SEASON 2 ep1. The writing would tell us they love one another. Sometimes you don't have to see it in the writing as i love you. it's just common sense.

    No just for Clem. For Clem to hear Lee loves her, just once. Not for us as we well know.

  • you never need the story to tell you everything it can be implied for example christa's baby is not there after the time skip so it's safe to assume it died.

    she do know lee loved her, he saved her many times that's why in episode 1 of season 2 she talks about lee alot

  • I think we may be talking past each other. I wasn't meaning we need Lee to say it to make the story complete. I was saying it for the benefit of Clem..the character and decisions she may have to make and memories she may have.

    As it stands nobody has told the girl she is loved in a couple years. Just hearing it can help...in the context of the character not the meta game.

  • I'm inclined to agree. Among the choices in the very last scene of S1E5, it would have been nice if the one last thing that Lee had to say could have been "I love you."

    It's not necessary and it's clear to me that they loved each other, as I'd imagine it is to most fans. But it still would have been nice to hear. Though it probably would only have broken my heart that much more. :(

  • its better that they never said it, it would mean the writers dont think we dont understand that writing

  • Eh. My significant other and I show each other love in such a way that we don't have to say it, but we certainly have said it more than a few times. I don't think that it's a lack of trust in your audience to have a character tell someone they love them before they can't say anything.

  • I get what you mean. I would have liked to have heard it too. I tell my mom I love her every time I get off the phone with her, same with my husband. I've lost people who I love dearly very suddenly and after that happens you can feel the need to let people know how you feel, just in case it's the last time you ever speak to them. Especially in the zombie apocalypse, when people can die at any moment, I would think that Lee would want to let Clem know how much he cares about her. Of course we know that Lee loves her, but like you said hearing it makes a difference. I was expecting him to say it before he passed away, but alas, it didn't happen.

  • The detail is that TTg want to display a heartless world as is the comic.

  • I agree. I say it all the time to my husband, but I don't NEED to. I do it because I like to, so does he. It's a good thing to say and to hear (if you truly mean it), especially when life is so fleeting (even more fleeting in the zombie apocalypse). You never know what can happen and telling someone how you truly feel can mean a lot to both parties. I don't think the audience ever doubted Lee's love for Clementine. Having him say "I love you" wouldn't hurt the writing in my opinion. It's a very natural thing to say to someone you love dearly and whom you've risked life and limb for.

    Eh. My significant other and I show each other love in such a way that we don't have to say it, but we certainly have said it more

  • I don't think that's the case at all. Season one was absolutely about people who loved each other going above and beyond to do what they had to do for the people they loved, even as everything went to shit around them. The story is practically all heart, in fact. :P

    Yes, there are heartless bastards, but imo, one of the biggest themes is finding a way to maintain your humanity and decency in the face of all of this bullshit.

    its better that they never said it, it would mean the writers dont think we dont understand that writing

  • Honestly, I felt that it was more loving to never say it, or anything like it, but instead, to die giving advice.

    "Don't be afraid."

  • but now we know for sure lee loved clem because look whats happening too her in season 2. if lee was there it would never happen

  • ttrue but in clem case she was saved many times because lee so it would be easy for her to understand lees love

    I get what you mean. I would have liked to have heard it too. I tell my mom I love her every time I get off the phone with her, same

  • It's not like we see every exact moment of their lives in games. It makes total sense that Lee had said it at some point. But not sure if you say so at any point during our game time.

  • Spoiler alert!!! Michonneis why spoil Lol. Put spoil alert next time i didnt play yet XD

    but now we know for sure lee loved clem because look whats happening too her in season 2. if lee was there it would never happen
