***He insists, no character or actor on the series is too popular to be killed off [even Norman Reedus's Daryl]: ***
"In my opinion, I feel like characters ripen like fruit. So while I wouldn't say the more popular a character is the more likely they are to die, they do have to reach a certain level of popularity before they've 'earned' the death," Kirkman says. "No character is too popular to die. (Suck it, Reedus!)"

Yes, even Andrew Lincoln's Rick:
"ABSOLUTELY NOT," he responded (all caps are his) when asked if Rick is safe. "Although when I look in Andrew Lincoln's piercing blue eyes, I feel safe."

What do you think the Telltale writes think when they read this? I know..Everybody loves Clem but do you think their could be a time when you know...shes killed?

  • They aren't going to kill Clem unless they somehow find a good way to wrap up her story in one season.

  • I try not to think about it, but still, this is The Walking Dead. Nobody is safe, Nobody.

    • And TT went bankrupt after Clems death.

      • Could be why TT is expanding into more games like TWAU, Tales from the Borderlands and Game of thrones... I can only imagine if clem dies, these threads are gonna blow up

        • They can make 50 games if they want, none of them combined will ever bring them as much money as TWD

          • TWD will bring them money as long as the quality remains the same. Surely you do not want them to milk this series,right? Either way, I'm pretty sure a lot of people will stick with TT after TWD is over.

            Also, if they indeed decide to kill Clem it won't happen this season. So people can be at ease.

            • The quality will never drop as long as they work on 1 game at a time. I'm ok with "milking" it but only if they focus mainly on it for the entire year. I want them to finish Clem's story at some point though, maybe season 4 or 5

              • The quality will never drop as long as they work on 1 game at a time.

                Now we both know that's not true. We've seen this happen before and TWD is no exception. Granted, it hasn't happened yet and there are no signs of it happening anytime soon. Still, the game is set in a zombie apocalypse, there is only so much they can do before things start to get predictable(the comics are a perfect example for that, even though the last 2-3 issues have been a little better). Do I want them to continue this series? Hell yes! But that doesn't mean I'll ignore the quality of the past seasons just for the sake of playing another one.

                And from the looks of things we do have a long wait ahead of us before S3 comes out. They still have 2 other games coming up and also there is the comics issue(Although it's implied some sort of time skip might happen). Here's hoping this game maintains his quality and has a long and good run.

                • Now we both know that's not true. We've seen this happen before and TWD is no exception.

                  That's because most companies of today are shit.

                  Still, the game is set in a zombie apocalypse, there is only so much they can do before things start to get predictable

                  Kirkman sucks and lacks originality.

      • I don't know whether Clem's death would kill the franchise. They'd be uproar from a few of the more obsessive fans, but it would depend on how well they can keep it interesting afterwards. Still it'd be a massive risk and i doubt they'd want to kill two protagonists in two seasons.

        Regardless, it is conceivable that TT may want to end TWD now they've got these new franchises. If they do then Clem's death becomes a lot more feasible.

  • No be honest Clem is character which made telltale famous and through her I feel part of the game as been with her the entire season see her grow up she's like everyone's child if kill her no one will want to play as what's the point all decisions and experiences to make Clem mature and survive then just kill her making game pointless all actions ever taken useless sure even replaying previous seasons knowing what happens to Clem just ruin the magic or in simple terms make more money continuing with her story for long time might hint at killing her but never will guarantee you.

  • If she does die, it'll be long after Rick is dead, in my opinion.

  • Just because they arnt safe dosnt mean everyone has to die. Just that dont think there safe, Honestly though Rick may die but Carl and Daryl are likely totally safe (hope I'm wrong though)

  • just post this again

  • Kirkman is full of crap. He knows darn well he's not going to kill off Rick. I doubt the show would kill Daryl either. As for Clementime, I cant see her getting killed off unless and until she becomes and adult.

  • do you think their could be a time when you know...shes killed?

    Maybe. Still, people need to realize the fact that Clem's story will be over, one way or another. Bear in mind, this doesn't mean I want her to die, no I do not.
