Importance of Pete's advice: What Roles might Clementine have to play within her and other groups?

edited February 2014 in The Walking Dead

Advice isn't given lightly in The Walking Dead.

At the very beginning of season 1 we are given two very important pieces of advice: the first is from Herschel: be careful who you lie to and about what, because you will have to rely on the trust and honesty of your fellow people to survive.

From Kenny in the same scene we got the second most crucial piece of advice: 'taking care' of Clementine isn't just about keeping her safe: Lee will have to act as a parental figure and role model for Clementine: not just a protector.

In season 2, the only advice we have been given so far is 'be careful of wild animals' (then Sam attacks us) and Pete's advice.

Pete's advice was this: Sometimes you have to play a role, even if that means the people you love, hate you for it.

My question to you all: what potential future roles might this allude to for Clementine, or other characters? Perhaps Pete's statement might actually allude to the the future actions of other characters instead of Clementine.

  • Well since in Season 1 while I was lee I made sure to teach clem that sometimes you just gotta kill those that deserve to be killed in order to survive. I made sure she knew that some people deserved to be killed and to not hesitate to kill and in season 2 ep 1 a lot of the things I taught her were given as choices and she was pretty awesome if I do say so myself. She learned how to survive from lee and all the new survivors she meets are all weaker than she is (mentally anyways) and she won't hesitate to kill and the other survivors from what I can see are lacking something that clem has.

  • How is that relevant to Pete's advice?

  • Don't go crazy, Clem

  • "'taking care' of Clementine isn't just about keeping her safe: Lee will have to act as a parental figure and role model for Clementine: not just a protector."

    Just stating that I followed that advice and taught her how to survive.. So don't put that in your thread if you don't want people to comment on it.

  • I think clementine may have to choose a side between Kenny or cabin group. The only people that may be still alive that clementine truly cares about is Kenny or Christa. So if Pete advice really matters then he is saying that you might have to go against Kenny judgement. I think we are going to see a different Kenny than the one in season one. Season two Kenny is going to be harden because everyone that he knows is dead. That just my thought.

  • We also got advice from Chuck to treat Clementine like a living person.

    You'll have to play a role in trying to present the brutal truth of the new world to Sarah, despite Carlos being against it and hating the crap out of you for it.

    Maybe Clem will see some of her old helpless self in Sarah and feel bad for her. I do think Clem would try to help the best she can. She doesn't seem the type who'd just abandon Sarah to be sheltered by her father. Not after what Lee and Chuck taught her.

    At least, that's what I figured.

  • Kenny is dead, he clearly got killed in season 1 and season 1 had way too much kenny in it and told his story thoroughly enough that his end in season 1 was acceptable as we had our fun times with him (killing lily's dad..) and our bad times (when I kicked his ass on the train) but yeah kenny's story has been told already and has met it's inevitable end. I would find it hard for ttg to actually do anything more with that character that would keep the fans liking him or interested. Most if not all the real fans should be satisfied with his ending as he had a pretty noble ending (in my playthrough I was best friends with him and he went and saved christa and met his death like a boss.) If you remember clem had to make a decision on who to go to at the end of ep 1 and I chose the old guy as he was nice to clem but he has been bitten so the choice she would have to make is chopping off his leg where he got bitten or killing him before he becomes a walker..

  • Can u try not saying who's a "real" fan IMO there's no such thing either u like it or u don't
    And it's also annoying when someone calls themselves real fans

  • Sometimes you have to play a role, even if that means the people you love, hate you for it.

    Rebecca going into labour, maybe? Rebecca hates Clem, but Clem will probably be helping her when the time comes.
