A Tad Disappointed

edited March 2014 in The Walking Dead

"For some reason I tried to save that fucking shit bird Ben"

I'm sorry but this disappointed me a lot. I feel that Kenny should be a lot nicer in the Ben sacrifice and should say something like this.

"I tried to help Ben, it didn't work out and he didn't make it, but I got lucky. Real Lucky" that would have made it better, but the fact that he just writes off his sacrifice like THIS just kinda makes it lacklustre, atleast when he sacrifices for Christa he says something like

"Christa got into a hell of a mess" or something like that.

I just wish Ken was a little nicer and didn't just write off his sacrifice for Ben like that. Still though, Kenny's a broski. My broski.

YEAAAA

    He says:

    " Christa got into a hell of a mess, so i went down there to help her. And then it got even messier! For a short time it didn't look so good for old Kenny here, but i got lucky...real lucky! "

    I always liked the Christa ending alot more anyway. I killed that fucking shitbird Ben!

    Yeah man i thought that too!

    Kenny seems to forgive Ben in episode 5 but now he's just like "Fuck him" Again.

  • I agree with you, I wanted him to say something nicer. I did happen to chuckle when he called Ben a shit bird though.

  • I saw this line in a Let's Play (he saved Christa in my game) and it's kind of jarring. The entire point of that scene was that he forgave Ben and wanted to save him, so calling Ben a shitbird seems pretty out of character for him. He should have been more of an asshole if he saved Christa, and said something along the lines of "Christa did something stupid, so I had to go and save her," because Ben wasn't around to make him realize how bad he'd been. It's like they got the scenes mixed up or something.

  • well, I think it's possible to forgive someone without stopping to hate them at the same time.

    Yea! How DARE Kenny still be a tad upset that Ben indirectly killed his family! That's very inconsiderate.*

    I agree for the most part. Kenny was my friend in Season One, and I thought he forgave Ben in that alleyway. The only way I can make sense out of what he said is that perhaps he didn't forgive him, but he couldn't leave him to die either. Or maybe it wasn't in a hateful way when he called Ben a "shitbird", as in he knew the kid screwed up, but he doesn't resent him anymore. Or it could be because Clementine's return brought out some old scores back into the light. Eh, I don't know what's going on in the old pal's head, haha. I'm worried about him. His whole family was killed, so there's that. I'd still have mixed feelings if I was in his position.

  • But Ben was still a fucking shitbird

  • You can forgive someone but still hold contempt for them

    Well, Kenny is a mess right now, what with how he's been acting so forcefully cheerful , I think he doesn't want to think about the sad stuff.
    If he told Clem that he forgave Ben I'm sure he would have gotten emotional, and I doubt that he wanted their first conversation in two years to be more depressing than it had to. I mean, look at how broken he looks when he accidentaly mentions Duck at the dinner table.

    Mark my words, if he tried to save Ben, he WILL break down and tell Clementine how he really feels at some point in the future episodes.
    Right now he's trying too hard to put on a cheerful mask. It's gonna fall off eventually.

  • I agree with you. Kenny forgave Ben and even though he could have been a bit nicer when talking about him, he probably still resents him for the mess he caused

  • Imagine this, Kenny tries to save Ben after he forgives him and that almost gets him killed, he is on his own for about a year and doesnt even mention what he has seen. There is no one else to blame after all this time(and Kenny never blames anything on himself because he is always right) so yeah its not out of char for him to call Ben a shitbird.

  • Actually, Kenny blamed Kat and Duck's deaths on himself. Even after he learns it was Ben, he blames himself when the group finds the suicide couple. Plus, he admitted to being solely responsible for Shawn's death from Day 1, and still blamed himself for it in Episode 3.

    Yeah, that really irritated me. Him sacrificing himself for Ben (even though he ended up not really dying somehow) was such a perfect way to wrap up Kenny's arc in Season 1, and it really did a lot to help redeem the character after some of his more questionable actions. Now he's back, and in one line they basically undid all that character development that took place in Episode 5.
