Of each episode which character stole the show?

edited May 2014 in The Walking Dead
In each Walking Dead Game episode a character can be so compelling that they define the episode. In your opinion which character (it doesn't have to be only one character) was so compelling that they stole the episode and why?
Hear is my example:

Season 1
Episode 1: Lee Everett (his troubled past)

Episode 2: Kenny (Salt licking Larry)

Episode 3: Chuck (Convincing Lee to teach Clem how to survive)

Episode 4: Ben (he may not be the most popular character but he defined that episode b/c of the complex situation that forced Lee to make the tough decision to save him or not.)

Episode 5: This one is a tie. Lee and Clem. (The relationship between Lee and Clem was so powerful that they both stole the episode with tears and feels)

Season 2:
Episode 1: Clementine ("I Am Still Not Bitten!" She was a total Bad Ass in that episode)

Episode 2: Carver (his introduction had brought shivers to every character in that episode)

Episode 3: Kenny (for quickly recovering after the beat down and killing Carver)

    Season 1:

    Ep1: Lee (backstory, drug store, meeting Clem)

    Ep2: Kenny (Farm scene, salt lick scene, car scene)

    Ep3: Chuck (Funny lines, good speech, and good survival needs)

    Ep4: Ben (Regretting what he did, admitting it, and facing it)

    Ep5: Clem (interactions with Lee and finally controlling her, last talk with Lee, surfing on her own)

    Season 2:

    Ep1: Pete (Trusting Clem, Nick Story and Riverbank scene

    Ep2: Nick (Mourning Pete, Bridge scene, him/luke backstory and him telling Walt the truth)

    Ep3: Kenny (Divising the plan, Giving up the radio, Recovering from injuries, beating down Carver)
  • Season 1

    Ep1: Clementine. Here was this adorable, helpful kid that I grew instantly attached to. She stole the show this episode, hell she stole the whole series along with our hearts.

    Ep2: Kenny. No denying that salt lick moment. Legless Mark comes in a close second.

    Ep3: Kenny again. this was his episode. Omid's introduction as well. Loved him from the moment we met him.

    Ep4: Molly. Total badass. 'nuff said.

    Ep5: Lee. No need for explanation.

    Season 2:

    Ep1: Pete. Wonderful man. Loved him for believing Clem from the start, and his story about Nick's younger years was very humanizing.

    Ep2: Oh, I can't pick! IMO, Luke(bridge scene), Kenny(his return), Nick(shed and shooting Matthew, confronting Walter) and Pete(truck and death) stole the show quite equally. I really loved this episode. Lots of nice development.

    Ep3: Kenny and Rebecca. Kenny for obvious reason. Rebecca because I loved how active and involved she was in all the discussions.

    Season 1

    Episode 1: Clementine... I was instantly attached. :)
    Episode 2: Mark (Don't...eat.......dinner....) and Kenny
    Episode 3: Kenny and Chuck (I still miss Chuck. D: His speech definitely set the tone for season 2 with the debut - I think - trailer.)
    Episode 4: Molly (of course) and Ben
    Episode 5: Lee. Lee. Lee. Lee. Lee. And Clementine, especially that post-credits scene, which got my heart racing. Honorary mention to Kenny and Ben during the "death" scene, I had to pause to cry.

    Season 2
    Episode 1: Clementine. Three words - "Still. Not. Bitten."
    Episode 2: Pete, Walter, and Kenny (his return scene still makes me so happy whenever I replay it)
    Episode 3: Kenny, Carver, and Clementine. I'm sorry, I chose like 3 characters each episode, but yeah. Kenny needs no explanation. Carver is such an awesome villain, I wanted him to die so bad and I had only ever felt that way before after Negan killed Glenn and after TV show Governor killed Hershel. I loved his speech to Clementine about the strong vs the weak, it will definitely be a huge part of season 2. And this episode marks the ep where Clem and everyone else come to realize she's a leader.
  • Season 1, Episode 1: Clementine (I'm going to try and keep this little girl safe)
    Season 1, Episode 2: Kenny (Showing that he'll do anything, ANYTHING, in order to get back to his family, trust in Kenny lost)
    Season 1, Episode 3: Omid and Clementine (Omid, because we just met a new bro. Clementine, because the losing of Duck and Katjaa were effecting her, and it's your job to be there for her)
    Season 1, Episode 4: Molly, Chuck, and Vernon's Crew (Chuck, because we just lost our hobro, and he risked his life to save Clem. Molly, because she was a mysterious and new character. Vernon's Crew, because they were new and pretty helpful after you settled them down)
    Season 1, Episode 5: Lee and Clementine (Lee has to go into epic mode to save Clementine, and by how depressing his death was)

    Season 2, Episode 1: Clementine, Omid and Pete (Clementine, because it's our first episode playing as her. Omid, because we have to say goodbye to a bro. Pete, because this guy sided with you the whole time)
    Season 2, Episode 2: Pete, Walter and Carver (Pete, because the bit with him in the begining made me feel so fucking sad. Walter, we met and lost an awesome character. Carver, because we now meet a new, crazy antagonist)
    Season 2, Episode 3: Clementine, Kenny, Carver (This episode actually, genuinely, had me scared for Clementine's life. Kenny, I was mad when he forced Clementine to keep the walkie-talkie on her, but renewed his awesomeness by taking the hits for her, but then once again, made me lose faith in him when he killed Carver by beating him to death with a crowbar. Carver, because it showed how evil and fucked up he was, and how he failed)
  • Season One Episode 1: Lee & Clem, Great intro for the leads of S1.
    Season One Episode 2: Lee & Kenny, The downfall of their humanity.
    Season One Episode 3: Kenny & Lilly, Kenny's lose & Lilly's insanity.
    Season One Episode 4: Ben & Lee, Ben being screwing up & getting almost everyone killed, Lee getting bitten.
    Season One Episode 5: Lee, Clem & Kenny, I don't really need to say anything here.
    400 Days: Nate because Gorked! Eddie because he mad the Episode funny & he helped a man he hit with his car when could have just left him.
    Season Two Episode 1: Pete & Luke, They both helped Clem when no one else would, Even if Luke did drop her.
    Season Two Episode 2: Nick, Don't need to say why, Clem & Kenny, That scene when they finally found each other was so heartwarming.
    Season Two Episode 3: Kenny, Again, You should know why, Clem, You should know why ;D Carver, He was such a asshole to everyone, Alvin, His last moments was heart breaking, Rebecca, It felt like she was involved a lot in E3, Carlos, The scene in the herd...

  • I'm not counting playable characters, otherwise I'd put Lee/Clem for all of them lol.

    Season 1:
    1. Clementine
    2. Kenny
    3. Kenny and Lilly
    4. Molly
    5. Clementine

    Season 2
    1. Pete
    2. Nick
    3. Kenny and Bonnie

    400 Days
    I hate to say this, but Nate.
  • Can't remember enough of season 1 to list those, so i'll just do season 2:

    2.01: Clementine
    2.02: Nick
    2.03: Sarah

    Bonnie and Kenny really got a chance to shine in episode 3, but it was Sarah who stole the show for me. It really broke her down and played around with her character, and she was there to witness 2 very dramatic murders. She shared most of the screentime with Clem too, and a lot of the choices were about her.
  • I actually think most of the Ep3 is about Sarah they keep talking about her in every scene
  • That's true, Sarah really shown in episode 3. Sarah, Bonnie, and Kenny were all huge players.

    Huh. funnily enough, yours are pretty close to mine.

    Season One:
    Episode 1 - Lee, meets Clementine and we learn about his backstory in a brilliant but vague way.
    Episode 2 - Kenny, The saltlick. I don't think I have to say much else.
    Episode 3 - Lilly, and for all the wrong reasons. Primarily for her losing her mind.
    Episode 4 - Ben, for messing up so much that it even seemed like Telltale were trying to make you want Ben to die. I still saved him though.
    Episode 5 - Clementine, this one was a close one between her and Lee. But when Lee dies, the only thing I thought to myself was the worry of what will happen to her in the future.
    400 Days - Nate, cool bastard who was quite the unique character to be shown in TWD. Hope he turns up again someday.

    Season Two:
    Episode 1 - Clementine, we finally got to return to her character after the end of the first season and take control of her. Season Two's first episode really was an excellent way to begin Clementine's struggle to survive.
    Episode 2 - Nick, A guy who also screws up. But unlike Ben, Nick faces his troubles and tries to be completely honest. Now that, is how you make a character awesome.
    Episode 3 - Kenny, he finally managed to prove himself to be a "New Lee" the way he pretty much sacrificed himself for Clementine's sake. And what did he get? A lost eye. And he didn't even mind it.
  • Season 1
    Episode 1 : Lee
    Episode 2 : Kenny
    Episode 3: Kenny
    Episode 4: Ben
    Episode 5: Lee

    400 Days : Eddie and Wyatt

    Season 2
    Episode 1 : Sam
    Episode 2 : Nick
    Episode 3 : Kenny
  • I personally feel this:

    Episode 1: Lee (His past)
    Episode 2: Saint Johns (You know why)
    Episode 3: Lilly (By killing C/D)
    Episode 4: Molly (By helping the group and being all ninja like)
    Episode 5: Stranger (Obviously)

    Season 2:
    Episode 1: Clementine
    Episode 2: Carver at first, Nick Later. (Carver for the first part with the cabin, and nick later when he shoots Matt)
    Episode 3: Carver again, with a mix of Luke and Kenny
  • Nate FTW!

  • 101- Lee

    102- Kenny

    103- Lilly or Chuck

    104- Molly or Ben

    105- Stranger or Clem

    201- Clem

    202- Carver

    203- Jane or Kenny "Kenneth"
  • S1E1: Larry. The whole 2nd half is about getting him his pills.
    S1E2: Lilly. She's the one in charge of the food, has her dad salt-licked, rescues Lee twice from the St. Johns.
    S1E3: Kenny. The whole episode is about how he can finally leave with the RV, but at the cost of his family.
    S1E4: Molly. She's the one that draws the zombies around, gets mistaken for the stranger, introduces us to Crawford, kicks some ass, disappears.
    S1E5: Clementine. This is her episode. This is her rescue. This is where she can kill for the first time, and she's the one that makes the final decision.

    S2E1: Clementine. This is all about how she has grown since the 1st season, so naturally it focuses on her the whole time.
    S2E2: Nick. Pete tells you to look out for Nick, or you go back to save Nick. He then proceeds to shoot Matthew accidentally, and become the first determinant character.
    S2E3: Kenny. This episode belongs to him. He makes all the rash decisions, forces Clem to take the Walkie-Talkies, get beaten by Carver, kills Carver, and his lover is in danger at the end.
