    I started doing a Michonne run to see game overs and stuff in episode 2, and there's some interesting stuff that can happen.

    • You don't have to attack Jonas if you killed Zachary. If you do nothing, Sam just knocks him to the ground herself.

    • At the end of episode 1, if you stop Sam from killing Zachary, but then fail the QTE, she'll push you off and shoot him anyways. And Telltale actually made the scene change for that. It shows it in the recap, and depending on dialogue choices, Michonne will say that she tried to stop her.

    • If you choose to attack Norma instead of Randall, she'll try to swing a knife at you. If you fail the prompt, she'll manage to cut your arm. What's also interesting is it slightly changes her dialogue. After she attacks you, you punch her to the floor. If she managed to injure you, she'll say "Oh Jesus! Randall, stop her! she'll kill me!", but if you didn't get injured by her, she'll just say "Randall!"

    • Similarly, if you attacked Randall, and don't avoid him when he swings the machete at you, he manages to cut your side.

    • If you stop Pete, you have to attack some of the people at Monroe. However, you only have to hurt one of them. There's a woman that attacks you with a knife that you have to hit with the machete and kick into the water, but the second guy with the axe that attacks Pete? If you do nothing, Pete just knocks him into the water.

    • When you're walking through the herd and miss the downward prompt, a zombie will bump into Michonne and notice her, making you have to kill it.

    • At the tower sequence when Randall's shooting at you, if you do nothing, Michonne will fall and be impaled. Her other deaths at that part just have her fall all the way down and smash into the beams.

    • If you stay silent the first time when Paige has you at gun point, she will actually shoot you.

    • If you do nothing when you have to choose which guy to attack, you actually don't die, despite the red screen, which sort of ends up breaking the scene. Eventually, the two guys reach the end of their animations, and stand still doing nothing.

    • If you choose the guy on the right (the one with the shotgun), and don't hide when he turns around, he'll actually spot you, which causes the scene to play out a bit differently. He tries to shoot you, but you dive behind cover and narrowly avoid the shot. He shoots the second round and misses, and tries to reload. From there, the scene plays out as normal, with you approaching him and cutting his throat.

    • If you have Pete with you, and don't grab the shovel when Randall's punching you, he'll beat you to death (as you'd probably expect).

    • If you don't do anything when Randall grabs you from behind, he'll snap your neck.

    • If you don't smash Randall's face into the table, he'll break free and smash your head into a sharp edge of the vice, killing you.

    • If you smash him into the table at least once, however, the scene will continue as normal, with him falling over and locking him into the vice.

    • If you let Randall keep talking to Norma, and then do nothing in the following scene, it will legitimately break the game, and you have to go back to the menu and restart from the last save.

    • Also, letting Randall fully speak to Norma can lead to this great little exchange: Michonne: You stupid fuck! I was trusting you! Randall: So who's the stupid fuck now? ...That's one of them rhetorical questions, by the way.

    • And it doesn't stop there for great Randall lines, either: "Norma's stormin' now!"

    • For whatever reason, if you choose "I couldn't stop it" when Sam asks about her father, it'll say Randall will remember that. Hm.


    Furthermore, the conversation with John outside can change. His responses to you just before he dies are different depending on what you told him when he asks if you have kids. If you told him about your kids, he asks how you'd feel if you found out they were dead, and you get 3 different options of what to say to him. If you didn't tell him, he starts getting a bit angry, saying that Michonne has no idea what it's like to lose a son, and goes on to say that he gave everything for Greg, only to lose him. You get three unique dialogue options if you chose this path, one where you can straight up tell him to go fuck himself. There might be even more if you told him to mind his own business. Seriously, there's a crazy amount of stuff that can change in this episode, especially in regards to dialogue. Serious props to Telltale. The epsiode might be short, but damn, this is some of their most intricate work in a while.


    And even more also, the stats for the episode have started to change as of my most recent playthrough:

    Stopped Pete? - 82.3% stopped him, 17.7% let him go.

    Phone or hallway? - 25.2% went into the hallway, 74.8% picked up the phone.

    What'd you say to Paige? - Not sure about all the stats on this one, but 21.1% expressed sympathy for the kids.

    How'd you handle the radio call? - Again, not sure of all of them, but as of now, 57.4% made Randall talk to Norma.

    What did you do to Randall? - 47% spared him, 53% killed him. (This one barely changed)


    Well shit, this post ended up a lot longer than I thought it would. I'm going to have to do even more playthroughs of this episode later, and maybe make a few videos of some of these scenes.

  • If you stay silent the first time when Paige has you at gun point, she will actually shoot you.

    Daamn...

    Also, one more final thing. For real this time

    This is an unused line from Michonne, from episode 1

  • I need to know the context of that line would be said.

    But at least they were almost mentioned.

  • Minor thing but Sam instantly becomes clean of gregs blood and the mark on her face if you fight randall also vanishes the moment you leave zac and jonas' cabin.

  • God damn it, why would they cut it out? ;-;

    Oh well...Maybe we'll get some references like this in the third episode.

  • I'm upset she didn't even mention Negan.

    In all seriousness, Tellltale in the details for the game only mentioned Rick, Carl, and Ezekiel. So I guess why?

    It is kind of weird she didn't mention Andrea.

    No Andrea? What?

  • You may know that, when asked by Michonne what she cares about, Paige mentions her parents, but states that they never seemed to want her around. This bridges with the Randall torture scene, when Randall heavily implies that his father used to hit him with a belt, and the screen focuses on Paige reminicising.

    Michonne
    Randall
    Paige
    Paige

    What's interesting is that apart from Paige's parents, she didn't mention anyone else besides Sam, possibly meaning that there isn't anyone else important to her that is dead. Despite this, if Michonne says that she was thinking about someone that she once knew—her daughters—Paige will say the following, hinting at her parents.

    Paige

  • Ah, alright.

    Its probably different if you choose the left guy instead but I haven't seen that with Pete. You might have already seen i

  • She said she was a bad shot but clearly not.

  • Going for the guy on the left without Pete is even more badass.

    The flaregun kill happens as usual, after the other guy sees you and takes aim. You then use the flare gun guy's body to take cover, carrying it over to the other dude, who runs out of ammo and, just as he tries to reload, is viciously stabbed in the eye.

    I don't even know if these two deserved such brutal deaths tbh, especially the flare gun guy.

  • Can you share a screenshot? I'm interested to see what the mother looked like

    There is a photo in Sam's house of the whole family celebrating either the mothers birthday or another holiday. Sam is holding Ale

    • The guard that Michonne determinantly suffocates is called Joe, and he seems to be of mixed African-American and Caucasian-American races.

    • Kenny's injured eye's tear ducts appear to be unharmed, given that he is seen crying when he tells Clementine to take AJ and go into Wellington.

    • Michonne mentioned in the comics that her ex-husband Dominic was an artist. Telltale didn't forget that and placed painting supplies on his room, along with some artsy pictures on the bathroom. He might've been the one who taught Elodie and Colette how to paint, too. Dominic the artist

    You gotta give it to that guy for deciding to attack Michonne, though. He runs run over to his buddy, sees him choking and burning to death on a flare with a machete sticking out of his back, and still decides to attack.

    If I was that guy, I would have just turned around and ran

    very, very far away

    whilst screaming like a girl

  • That last one is so cool, though.

    * The guard that Michonne determinantly suffocates is called Joe, and he seems to be of mixed African-American and Caucasian-Ameri

  • I'm pretty sure the Joe guy lives either way. He wasn't strangled to death like the wiki says, he was choked out, which would leave him unconcious for a few minutes, but not kill him. If you want to strangle someone, it takes longer than a few seconds, you probably would have to keep strangling them for a minute or two after they become unconcious.

    * The guard that Michonne determinantly suffocates is called Joe, and he seems to be of mixed African-American and Caucasian-Ameri

  • Wait how dont you choke him to death? Because ive played through both ways and Michonne always killed him, Also are we sure michonne kills him when she does that? Or does she just choke him unconscious?

    Have Zachary and Jonas be alive and they distract Joe for you.

  • They were alive on my first play-through. I guess you have to tell them to help you in the first dialogue option?

  • Yep. You need to tell them to help.

  • I think so too, to be honest. I'd edit the article right away, but I have no idea how to and it would probably create a mess when someone else writes it back this way.

  • He's also one of the people hunting you in the woods

  • Did Cam get back up after the tower fell? Just replayed and saw a guy who looks like him run off with Randall

  • It's called Nick's misinformed trait syndrome. It's stated that they're a bad shot but their actions say otherwise.

    She said she was a bad shot but clearly not.

  • DeltinoDeltino Moderator

    I can't help but disagree with this.

    • He can shoot at Clementine and miss completely if you try to run when you first meet the group

    • When walkers first show up at the stream, he shoots at a walker in front of him and somehow only manages to graze its forehead

    • When you go with Pete, you can hear and see him missing multiple shots, mostly at close range

    • He takes about 4-5 shots to take out two walkers attacking Pete if you went to him

    • He misses more shots during the lodge attack, at least one at relatively close range

    And then there's him shooting Matthew. The one time he actually manages to hit what he's aiming for in one go. Tyreese is a bad shot in the comics, yet there's instances where he still manages to hit stuff. Is Nick really all that different?

    It's called Nick's misinformed trait syndrome. It's stated that they're a bad shot but their actions say otherwise.

    I forgot to mention this after I first played and someone might have already mentioned it, but somehow that old Civil War Museum Rum is in Michonne's apartment.

  • Microphone's apartment

    That guy has such a nice apartment.

  • He deserves it, after all, Microphone just saw his best friend, Camera, die at the hands of Negan last night.

  • Jeez, what is wrong with me. Did I seriously write Microphone instead of Michonne?

    And by the way, Michonne didn't even live there. It was Dominic's and her daughter's apartment. Realizing this has me LMAO.

  • No, it is just a conspiracy theory! Unless you prove that it is a real word, I'm just going to assume that you're lying.

    While this is not in the game, I was reading "Life and Death" and I found some interesting lines. It might help connect some dots, or just clear some things up.

    "And that's if things are going well, which almost never happens... We had some shit go down out there. Life on the open water... It's hard." - Michonne


    "Did you find what were looking for?" - Rick

    "..." - Michonne


    "Rick... I abandoned my children. I was moving up at the firm. My life was taking off and my marriage crumbled. I moved closer to the officer, I didn't want to take my girls out of their school... They loved their father. I knew how much I'd be working... It just made sense. I regretted it from the first minute, but it was something I had to do. They were all the way across town. I tried to get to them... By the time I got there... They were just gone. I have no idea where they went, or if they're alive. But I know they're dead. I just know there's no way they made it. My husband, Dominic, he... He couldn't use a screwdriver. He was an artist... I never said goodbye. I wasn't there when... They're just gone. I know you lost Lori and Judith... But you don't have the questions I do. I can't stop thinking of the worst possible scenarios... Picturing my girls... How scared they must have been... How much pain they were probably in... It's something that's always on my mind." - Michonne


    I find this line very interesting

    "We talked about having kids... Building a life together, and it just made even happier. It was like I was getting a do-over. Did you hear that? My girls are dead... And I was getting a fucking do-over." - Michonne


    "I found the people living at Oceanside. I'm the one who told Rick about them." - Siddiq
