  • I thought I had corrected 'shoe' to 'zoo' when I posted. Guess not.

    May I ask what a freak petting shoe accident is?

  • Oh, that makes sense now. It would've made some good, comedic bit of backstory for Zachary, but you know, he's dead in about half of the playthroughs.

    he's dead in about half of the playthroughs.

    I thought it was more like 20%

  • Wha....? How did nobody notice this until now?! Mind = blown.

    How much you wanna bet that Randall cut off his fingers GoT - style for some trivial offense?

    Anything about Zachary seem a little bit off to you? Yep, he's missing two fingers. If you're anything like me, you probably haven't realized this until now, either.

  • It was when the episode was first released, but most choices from previous The Walking Dead games balanced after some time—including the iconic Doug or Carley, which balanced after three years recently—so I figure that the same will happen with this one.

  • I'll always remember missing that in high school psych class.

  • –SPOILER WARNING FOR MODERATORS!–

    Given that Greg instantly comes up with the lie that Michonne is an old family friend while under pressure, and that we don't know what relationship Paige has with John's family, it is probable that she is an old family friend, from before the outbreak.

    I was thinking that she was possibly their babysitter, and ended up staying with them.

  • I initially thought she was their mom but once I learned she was dead, and Sam didn't mention any sisters I got confused.

    If Paige knew the mom committed suicide which was about a year ago, then she must have been there for a while.

    Thanks for replying and clearing it up. I went on a comment spree like 30 sec after I finished the episode and was a bit emotional. Kinda wish you guys posted here more, but a wish is a wish

    So, I keep thinking of the song "Gimme Shelter" by the Rolling Stones when I see "Give No Shelter".

    Anyway, I believe the minimum number of Monroe colonists that have to die is 4. I'm including the guy who has the tower fall on him, because I don't think he lived. There's the 3 guys with Randall, flare gun, shotgun, and the other one.

    Also, there was one random person in Monroe who shouted "Mike, where are the kids?"

    So yeah. Dwell on that.

  • edited March 2016

    How did a small fire on a boat cause Monroe to go up in flames?

    Am I missing something?

  • Sam's kind of old to need a babysitter. Granted, you could have one for the kids. I just don't see why the parents wouldn't just have Sam watch her brothers. Then again, we know little about them before the apocalypse. Anything is possible.

  • Wasn't the tower guy Cam?

  • edited March 2016

    I've been thinking about Paige's connection to the family and I believe she is Sam's girlfriend. If you ask her what she cares about this will happen:

    Paige: My parents had me... But never seemed to want me around. (Smiling a Sam) Sam though, she... she always did. God, I hated her guts when I first met her. She used to pick on me all the time... thought she was tough shit. Little did she know, I was tough shit too.

    We also see that Sam after seeing Jonas and Zachary hugging changes her mind and immediately calms down, I believe it was empathy.

  • Well if we go with Carver's first name being Bill and not William that would make AJ...

    If Carver is AJ's father, his name would be CJ. GTA SA fans will understand ne.

  • I think you nailed it. That makes the most sense out of everything I've been thinking! I didn't even catch the Zachary/Jonas thing until you brought it up.

  • Great catch! Love how TWD is bringing in much more diversity in their characters!

  • That definitely seems plausible, while it would also explain what the connection with John's family is. I agree with @NOHATCLEM; it's nice that they're creating diverse characters, while also allowing them to be round, integral people instead of two-dimensional stereotypes.

    You're right. 4 minimum deaths: the guard that Michonne chokes out, the guy the tower falls on, and the two at the end.

    Furthermore, if you stopped Pete, Michonne ends up killing 2 more people, at least assumingly. She kicks two guys into the water without hurting them, but she slices two others with her machete before knocking them in, so I'm going to assume those two didn't make it.

  • DeltinoDeltino Moderator

    I'm just going to assume that either that flame hit a wire/rope that was connecting the boats, or the resulting explosion launched some flaming debris that were able to cause more fires.

  • I don't think you have to choke the guy out. I had Zachary and Jonas distract him. It might actually be 3, I could have sworn there was a third guy at the house.

  • Well, they did have wood planks connecting the ships and boats, so I'd imagine that they could've let the fire spread.

    Noooo my fav redshirt. Was he also the guy who alerted randall where they were?

    Yeah I think so.

    Not only are Sam (Devery Jacobs), Greg (Booboo Stewart), and John Fairbanks (Jonathan Joss) all Native American, so are the voice actors portraying them.

    Sam and Greg are Native Americans? Damn, didn't notice that.

  • Episode 3

    Michonne runs from walkers and slips on banana peel

    Sam's house burst into flames

  • My sister and I are about as far apart as Sam and Alex (the little one), and my parents have flat out said that they would rather hire a babysitter than let me watch my sister. Some younger kids listen more to an authority figure than a sibling, or parents may find that they oldest one isn't ready to care for a younger one.

    Kinda depends, though.

    Yeah, I know right? Its practically right in front of you, and you don't even notice it. For the longest time I thought he was just bending them or something.

  • Them being girlfriends was the first thing I thought of, too. Especially because Sam kinda looks like Max from Life Is Strange, so I immediately got a "lesbian" vibe, lol.

    Apologies for the bad picture, but I really like this shot, and I can't shake the feeling that it's symbolic.

    Look at the center of the shattered glass. What is it focused near? Her heart.

    Of course, whether this is intentional or not is up for debate, but I'd like to assume it is. Either way, it's an awesome shot.

  • You can see the same type of rum from Ep 5 of Season 2 near Michonne's phone.

  • How about Sam's logic though. Hey, let's climb this rusty old looking whatever the fuck this is! It definitely won't collapse with 2 grown adults and one teenager!

    -_-

  • DeltinoDeltino Moderator

    Not like there's a ton of options, besides risking going through the forest and hoping they don't bump into Randall or his goons. Both options are shit, and call me stupid if you want, but I'd rather risk climbing that tower than running blindly through the woods.

  • edited March 2016

    I was going to say the same thing. Also lol'd at Randall when he shot at Sam and Michonne. He fires 3 bullets from his AK then threw it down, even when it didn't seem empty ( no click). Then takes out his pistol and fires several shots while michonne is totally exposed and almost hits her once. Then.. Randall receives aimbot and snipes John. ( I think his name was john) The snipers were way more accurate then Randall will ever be at medium range lol
