What is Rebecca had been Raped?

edited January 2014 in The Walking Dead

Now i know this could be a kind of hit and miss subject, but what if carver had threatened Rebecca and make her have sex with him? Would you feel differently towards her if thats the case?
( I didn't like her, asked about baby but said i wouldn't tell)
Mabye the reason she is worried is that Alvin r whatever may think it was someone in their group who cheated?


  • If that were the case, I'd just hope the writers would be extra sensitive in how they choose to convey it in the story. I do think Telltale would be able to handle it well.

  • yeah, i could imagine them hinting it, you know like with molly on the tape in Crawford? they didn't show you what actually happened, but you know what really went down...

  • Rape is a very touchy subject for some people and I am not sure if there is a good way to write something that doesn't end up offending a lot of people.

    I have a feeling Rebecca is Telltale's new Larry. You meet both of them after half the episode and they both dislike you very much. So I think we will see some sort of secrets kept in Alvin/Rebecca's relationship and he may not be as nice as he seems. We don't really know these characters very well so far so we can't really tell exactly who they are.

  • Rape is a very touchy subject. That said, TTG has crossed other touchy subjects with extreme ease and little repurcussions... seeing as Urban Lee is the butt of many jokes.

  • I really don't know if that will change my opinion of her... Granted, rape is indeed a touchy subject. But it has been done before in TWD and if TT decides to go for it, they will handle it. But still... I dunno if rape is the way to develop Rebecca's character, better than her being Lori V2 i guess....

  • I'd be absolutely offended, because some imaginary great grandmother of mine got raped in a concentration camp by a nazi named Carver. Besides, I should mention that I'm extremely religious so I don't like anything that has to with sexuality in a game rated mature but if you ask why I play it I will call you bigot out and tell everyone how intolerant you are.

  • If she is like Larry, then I hope we can bash her head with a salt lick :D

  • That's kinda why I wasn't initially aggressive toward Rebecca. Maybe she was a trusting person before she became pregnant.

    It is a fucked up thing, but could be a twist they'll throw at Clem and the gang.

  • If she was raped, I don't think she'd be worried about it not being Alvin's baby.

  • Why would you wanna have a rapists baby?

    She'd still be a bitch. A somewhat more sympathetic bitch, but still a bitch. At this point, enough fucked up shit has happened that you just have to assume that everybody's been through some unspeakable trauma. Unless it just happened or is somehow relevant to the current situation, it's not an excuse for shitty behavior.

  • Let's just hope nothing of the sort happens to Clem...

  • She wouldn't have been keeping it a secret is what I meant.

  • telltell pulls of some nasty stuff, but that be well too far...

  • lol why the dislikes?
    its all for the sake of discussions, what else another Kenny thread or is lee alive thread?

  • You never know man, I really fucking hope it doesn't happen but you never know...

  • Well to be honest, Telltale are making Game of Thrones and that series is full of sex and rape so......I wouldn't be surprised if Telltale delved in such themes

  • In this lawless world it's definately a possibility but with how touchy people are about rape and especially child rape it won't happen. Maybe an attempted rape but even that might push boundaries.

  • don't most pregnant women have mood swings? probaby why he's so pissy

    That would be going too far but i did mean someone could attempt it & that someone will die in the process, I don't want it to happen but it could, All i know is i won't ever let it happen.

    I honestly don't think the ESRB would let it slide if that happened to Clem, even if it's just implied. She's only 11.

    If she were in her late teens it might be a possibility, but even then that'd be pretty corrosive for the raters and the fanbase alike.

  • They're called mood "swings" because they go from one emotional extreme to another very quickly. We only saw Rebecca being a bitch and I've yet to see her swing to anything else so until that happens, I'm just going to assume that's her general disposition.

  • well to be fair we barely talked to her

  • Good point but you never know whats going to happen.

  • i would still think shes a cunt, raped or not being such a bitch and being for killing a kid is just fucked up

  • Impossible Rebecca and rape in the same sentence?Please if anyone tried to raped her she will rape him back. Didn't you guys see her nasty yet strong powerful attitude?
