Over the past couple weeks, I've noticed some threads discussing Clementine's mental health, but few seemed to mention an important aspect of her character; self-sacrifice.
Depending on how you play through episodes one and two, there are several instances in which Clem seems a bit too eager to put herself in the line of fire. The most notable example occurs at the end of episode 2, if you decide to surrender. One option causes Clementine to charge at Carver with her hands still bound and allow herself to be put a gunpoint in a bid to save Alvin, some guy she's only known for a week.
The question: Is Clementine just incredibly brave and a bit reckless, or is she becoming a death-seeker with no regard for her own safety? Honestly, I'm inclined to lean toward the latter.
Does this mean that Clem is ready to put a gun to her head? Hell no...but I wouldn't be surprised if she continues to take on suicidal odds in the future. If you think about it, her mindset isn't that different from Kenny at the end of season one. She's lost practically everyone that she cares about and she would rather sacrifice herself than lose anyone else.
What do you think? Why is Clementine putting her life on the line? Is she trying to find redemption, or just tired of living in such a fucked up world? Is she going to jump on another grenade next episode? Will Carlos, Luke or Carver call her out on these kinds of stunts?
