Theory about [spoiler] death

posted by Gary-Oak on - Viewed by 3K users
I have a theory about Kenny's death.
Well it's actually a friends theory but i added onto it.
Anyway, Clem, Sarita and Kenny will be surrounded by walkers. And Kenny will tell them to get away, and he will hold them off.
Kenny will charge toward the walkers, and you have the option of grabbing Kenny's arm and stopping him.
Kenny will kneel down and take Clem's arm off of him, and say 'You take care of Sarita, Clementine, goodbye' and fight off the walkers.
  • Then next season he appears with a Dumbledore beard, saying he got lucky.
  • I don't think Ken will get epic last words this time. TTG's way of saying, "Be careful what you ask for."
    • I'm hoping they do something special still, I don't want them to waste a character like that. I don't mean something necessarily showing him as some epic hero guy again, maybe turning him into a villain.
      • Oh, sure, they'll do something with the character, but I highly doubt that they'd give him an epic death if no one was satisfied with it last time.
        • Everyone loved Kenny's thought to be death scene, saying it was a "perfect character arc". He's just been such a big character for such a long time, I'd hate to see him turned into a mere fanservice and tearjerker.
          • They weren't satisfied, though. "KENNY SEASON 2."

            I literally am quoting here:

            "If Kenny isn't in season 2, I will quit playing this game forever."

            Well. Not literally, but you get it.
            • Well, there were some people that were a little too obsessed with Kenny, and I'm pretty sure they're all still around here since Kenny is back, but a lot of Kenny fans aren't like that. Me, for instance. I figured he would be in season 2 despite the unlikeliness since his death was never shown and Telltale was teasing his return, but I wouldn't have just flipped a table and left if he wasn't in season 2 lol.

              And yes, that actually is quite literal. That's literally what some of them said, I believe I actually recall people threatening to stop playing the game if Kenny didn't return. It seemed excessive to me.

              Still, I think everyone appreciated his thought to be death scene in season 1, right? Even you said that until he returned and trashtalked Ben, it redeemed him in your eyes.
              • I've met few Kenny fans and far between who think like that, friend.

                As for him being redeemed, he would only be redeemed if he had died. Surviving would make me wary of him, and him unthinkably saying what he said makes him a flat villain in my eyes.
                • "Far between who think like that"? I don't understand what you mean. D:

                  Why does dying mean he's redeemed? He still walked into almost certain death for the same reasons, the only thing that changed is he somehow lived. Why does him regretting what he did make him a villain to you? I mean making you hate him is reasonable, but a villain? Well I guess we'll see if he's a villain or not in episode 3, maybe my theory that Kenny is the person who murders someone is right lol.
                  • There are not many people who think like that. I figured that dying for Ben would mean that he gave the ultimate sacrifice for someone he hated. Rather than refusing to help a little girl because he doesn't like her daddy much. Personally, I find that emotions after events show much more about the core of your character than anything else. Anything can happen in the moment. Afterwards is what shows the inside of your soul. Also, I don't think Kenny is a villain; I just think he's an asshole, and I really don't want him around.

                    Also, you've never heard "few and far between"? I put Kenny in the middle of that phrase so that the sentence made sense.
                    • I personally think that actions speak louder than words. For instance. Let's say Kenny and Lee get into a fight, Kenny says he wishes Lee was dead. Then he saves Lee from a zombie when he could have just ran away with no consequences and no one knowing what had happened. I'm not claiming the scenario is realistic, but the actions there certainly speak louder than the words. To me, it doesn't matter what you say as much as what you do. He saved Ben from the fate of being a zombie. He had plenty of time to choose what to do, though he was completely retarded about the situation(it was clear he couldn't save Ben and he could have just shot Ben and ran), but that's not the point. I'll make no effort to deny that Kenny is an asshole, but I think he's a good person.

                      He sometimes tries to let Lee die(more that he's not willing to risk his life for Lee if Lee's an asshole to him), and he DOES want Ben to die at one point, but overall, he risks his life for other people a ton. He might act like he hates everyone, but he is willing to put his life on the line, even for Ben. But I guess you also kind of said that. Not a villain, just an asshole. Which he is.

                      No, I don't believe I've ever heard that, sorry. ;-;
  • I'd rather have an episode 5 "choose Kenny or Luke" situation, I'd feel burdened to protect Sarita if that situation happened. I'm not really a very big fan of her character so far, she didn't get very much screen time yet.
    • That would be stupid. Not to be a dick, but that would suck. We have had enough THIS CHARACTER, OR THIS CHARACTER? If they do that, then it has to be subtle and tricky. Like Alvin's death. Something that you don't know will end their life or not.
      • Not "choose Kenny or Luke to live". I mean like the group gets separated into 2 groups from a disagreement, led by Luke and Kenny, and Clementine has to choose one go go with, with both of them desiring her companionship. A lot of people really like both Luke and Kenny, I think choosing one to just leave behind would be harder than choosing one to let die.
        • Yeah, that would be kinda really lame.
          • Maybe to you, since the decision would be easy to you(Luke), but a lot of people would be completely torn in any Kenny or Luke decision. They're some of the biggest fan-favorites.

            Imagine two of your favorite characters, now imagine having to choose between those two. At that, imagine it's a situation in which the one you don't choose doesn't die, but you leave them behind and completely betray them. You'd get a lot more time to regret your decision since they wouldn't die suddenly right after. For a lot of people, the two perfect characters for that situation at the moment are Kenny and Luke.
            • But choosing which person to get to like you has already been done. It's tired, we should throw it out. Last time, it only made bad things happen.
              • It only made bad things happen. Exactly. And bad things happening in the story make for better plot. Do you expect GOOD things to happen often in the zombie apocalypse?

                Choosing which person to get to has already been done, but not when you know both characters so well and when they're both such important and big characters to the story, and it's never been done in that way before. I'm talking about a lasting effect, like the one you go with stays with you in season 3 or something.
                • No. I didn't mean bad as in bad for the characters, I meant bad as in nonsensical. You can try to get a guy's son killed twice, but just because you murdered a guy together, all of a sudden you're pals. Or you can be this guy's biggest supporter, but just because you wanted to save an old man, you're now the enemy.
                  • Actually, I know plenty of reports of people agreeing with Kenny in every situation where he's right but siding against him with with killing Larry and dropping Ben and Kenny still giving the bro speech and being up Lee's ass. From what I know, you get 2 or 3 times to disagree with him, disagree any more and he'll pretty much be Lee's second worst enemy in the group(worst being Larry). I think each character has a threshold of how much dickishness they'll take from the main character, and they all have a certain point at which they'll start being a dick back.

                    I get what you mean, the games' ways of making characters like or dislike the main characters are a little bit flawed at times, but I think they're getting better at it. We haven't gotten to see much of it yet in The Walking Dead season 2, but I get the feeling that will change in episode 3 with all of the new characters appearing(I'm thinking there will be more than the 4 new ones in the trailer). They've also done a good job so far with that in TWAU in my opinion, since nearly every character has a clear 'nice' and 'mean' personality towards Bigby.
                    • They're bros. That's why Larry let Lee stay under the door. From what I understand, you can disagree in anything that doesn't involve his family. But there's something wrong about that, because I agreed with him every time his family was involved, yet in my canon redux, I got the bro speech instead of "Why are you looking over here?"

                      I sure hope they're getting better, but this season already has enough blemishes. I'm still on the fence about just calling it non canon and moving on.
                      • I never said they're bros. But they ARE bros if Lee sides with Kenny most of the time. If he does, Kenny returns the favor, constantly siding with Lee and risking his life to save Lee when ever he's in trouble(examples, in the barn in episode 2 and under the door in episode 3, Kenny will help Lee if you side with him enough). I don't know what the exact requirements are for the agreement, I just know situations in which people disagree with Kenny in some aspects and still get the bro speech.

                        I don't recall him ever saying "why are you looking over here". You must have to disagree with him on EVERYTHING to get that. o-o I do recall him asking Lee "Why should I help you? I keep asking my self, if I were in your place, asking you to put your life on the line, would you? Because there'v been a lot of times when you ain't been."

                        Oh, really? Give it a chance. I know it seems like Clementine's just a living manifestation of bad luck which makes it seem kind of unrealistic, but it also makes the story interesting.

    I have a feeling Kenny is going to lose an eye this next episode.
  • I'm not saying he will die next episode, it was just a theory for when it happens, if it happens, which i don't want to happen.
    I want him to stay alive.
  • Well , believe it or not , Kenny will not die before Clem , because killing of a character after bringing him back from absolute death
    is totally pointless unless you kill HIM/HER alongside the main character .

    Telltale won't kill Clem because whole season 1 would be pointless then , so as long as the main character ( Clem ) lives , Kenny lives , It's hard to understand but yeah , it just how it works ..
  • So basically... he dies the same way? :P
  • So you want Kenny to sacrifice himself again just like season 1

    Only this time he dies
  • Actually, sudden and uneventful deaths of main characters can be somewhat appealing; they're just unexpected. I know that's happened in movies before and it was pretty interesting (see Children of Men for instance).
