'Who should look after Clementine?'

So do you all remember that choice back in 105? In the attic, when the group escapes the horde and have to break the wall to get through to the other side - you are asked: 'Who should look after Clementine?' giving you the options of Kenny / Christa and Omid / Find a family that's capable.

Well, what if that choice matters more than you think, like what if Christa and Kenny meet up again, but have different ideas of where to go and they argue over who takes Clem and your choice back in 105 will impact this.

Christa could bring up 'Well, Lee wanted you to take her, Ken.' or 'Lee left me and Omid in charge of her' or 'Lee didn't want either of us to look after her- Lee wanted better (and hands you over to the cabin group or something)

I don't know, I don't think this will happen but it would be nice if the choice were to have a bigger impact.

  • It would be awesome if choices Lee made still carry through season 2. Like he's still alive somewhere.

    I'm still sad that they did not give the option for Ben to look after Clementine. :(
  • Kenny or Kenny and Christa :)
  • I like this idea..
  • If you were Lee, after all that had happened, would you even consider it?

  • Yes, because you would want Ben to look after her...after he runed away from the horde of Walkers like the dumb coward he is, leaving Clementine behind to die. Thank god our hobro Chuck was there to save her life!

  • If Chuck would be alive,He will be the one I'm asking if he can take care of her
  • That's fucking stupid, Ben. But, seriously Ben was unable to look after HIMSELF. If he can't take care of himself how he can take care of a little girl? And if Ben DID ended up taking care of Clem I really doubt that she would live long.

  • Chuck would have been the best ;_;
  • I really, really hope not. The game has a tendency to glitch out, and sometimes things aren't imported properly. Imagine having the game recognize your choice incorrectly - it would suck pretty bad. Beyond that, what if the silence option had been chosen? What if you're playing without an import? (A lot of the non-import references related to past dialogue seem to default to silent Lee, but it's worth mentioning.)
  • I agree with this, Ben needed a chance for redemption and never got it.

  • Yeah, I remember at the end of 105 the stranger accused me of letting Clem eat Mark BUT I DIDN'T! I was so pissed. Wouldn't want that again.

  • I'd be happy with my option going through. I do love me some Christa and Omid.
  • Heh. She ate Mark in my first three playthroughs. Stranger never once mentioned it.

  • Uh Clementine should look after Ben not the other way around

  • Nobody. She can take care of herself
  • Luke would be the best choice
  • I think Molly would make a great guardian
  • That is bull. That is bull, and I'm tired of people saying that. She was on her own for like five minutes before she needed to be saved. Plus, she's fucking 11. She needs help to grow up properly. I don't care how mature you are at 11, you're going to change. I was mature at 11. Much more mature than any adult I lived with. A biker and his girlfriend? Fuck yeah I was more mature than them. I was dumb, but mature. More mature than the receptionist at my school, maybe even more mature than most of my teachers. But I still needed to grow, and as I moved into my teenage years, I naturally lost some maturity. I still needed growth. And no matter who you are, you're going to need an adult to do so properly. Some sort of guiding force to show you what right and wrong is. Some force to bring harsh realizations to you. Finding those on your own, with no guidance, and no comfort, that can be a traumatic fucking experience. And yes, she knows a lot, too much for an 11 year old, but she does not know every single thing.

    I can already hear your response. "She needs a good group is all." A group that fills the role of a parent by guiding and comforting her as they need to is a group of parents. Guardians. Whatever you want to call them. If they fill the roles of a parent, then they are a PARENT. End of story.

    Oh, his choices do. Like in Season 1, Episode 1. When given the option to swear in the barn with Clementine. If you do she says the swear in Episode 2 of S1. Lee tells her not to swear but in Season 2, Episode 1 she does it again in the gas station bathroom.

  • I think that Travis should have looked after Clementine.

    His dad was special forces.
  • He knows what he's doing.

    Sometimes I feel that people need a daily reminder that Clementine is still a kid.

  • Holy shit I was preparing for so much hate for that. When I make passing comments on some things, I get berrated, but when I actually get frustrated and start being aggressive, I get likes out the wazoo.

  • Actually, he and his dad ain't got nothing on Nick.

    That boy knows where the fuckin' river is.

    He knows what he's doing.

  • I never said Clementine still wasnt a kid. Im just sayin that it also depends on the enviroment you grew up in. Good for you that you were mature at age 11 but that means Clem should be more mature and has a mind that nobody could ever have in the real world becaude that is only a mind you have in an apocalypse . Clem may be young but c'mon! She can open cans and kill walkers and run (unless she is injured) and if she IS injured then theres not really anyone else could do . She also stiched her arm, knows how to shoot a gun, and most importantly she is not afraid. It would be nice to have Lee as a friends for Clem in season 2 but I would see them as doing things evenely ( take care of themselves)

  • Wait, so you're calling Luke a pedophile in your name...then saying you want him to take care of Clem? You sir either regret your name, are being sarcastic, or are sick in the head.

    Luke would be the best choice

  • In episode 5 of season 1, after Clem breaks the glass window with the baseball bat, i think.. Lee tells her that: - She's smart and he(walker) isn't, she's smarter than all of them.

    In the first episode of season 2. Clem says exactly the same thing to the dog sam. after they found the walker by the tree.

    OH FUCK. She can open fucking CANS. I mean, not to be an asshole, but come on. That is no sign of being different than anyone else. And if an 11 year old had to, they could kill. In the right situation, I mean. With the right combination of societal pressure, physical threat, and a number of other factors, exceptional children like Clem could do that. Clem is really fucking tough. Doesn't make her anything more than she is. A child. Children need guardians. Have you ever met somebody who grew up without parents? They're usually really angry, and really hard. I don't want that to be Clementine. If that's how she ends up, I'll be disappointed. She doesn't need a guardian to do everything for her, hell no. She needs a guardian to vouch for her in an unforgiving world. A guardian to teach her how to be a good person. And now, in the apocalypse, a guardian to show her how to survive. And I feel that she has already found those in Luke and Christa. Luke and Clem aren't exactly close yet, but Luke clearly fills at least two of those roles. Christa on the other hand shows her a lot of shit on how to survive. Without Christa, Clem would be dead. Without Luke, Clem would be forgotten within the group. She doesn't have a voice within the group, really. And she won't for a while. Well. Maybe she will, but without Luke, that wouldn't have happened.

    Aren't there multiple situations in Season 2 where Clementine required the help of a more physically stronger and matured person to get her out of a sticky situation? I can name 2.
    After Clem got bit by Sam and then Pete and Luke saved her
    After she rescues Pete or Nick and they distract the walkers to keep her safe

    So yeah, she can't really stay by herself. Even the characters at the cabin make note of that by asking her where she will go after she gets stitched up.
