Rebecca's baby?

So if Alvin isn't the father, do you think Rebecca will abandon it? I think she will, because it seemed like Carver may have forced Rebecca in some way to have sex with him and i don't think she would want to be reminded of it.

Comments

  • I don't think Carver forced himself on her. They kind of hinted at that but the way she addresses him just....doesn't quite make sense. She talks as if she once liked him but then he turned bad. Why call him "Bill" all the time, for example?

    As for if she'd abandon it....no clue. I think it'll be Alvin's anyways.
  • Why would she? It doesn't matter if Carver is the father, she is still the mother, so it seems just strange to abandon her own child somewhere.
  • i don't know, it never slipped into your mind that she would? This is the ZA.

  • Plot twist? Black baby? Alvins all along?
  • No, never. I'm not familiar with the TV series and the comics, but I'm aware that infants have almost zero chance of survivability. However, I still think it's remarkarbly cruel to abandon the child. Although, I agree that little children (under Clem's age) aren't really useful, because they can't pull their own weight, which can drag everyone down.

  • It happens all the time in real life, people abandon kids everyday. It is cruel, however that is life. For some reason my sick brain went there today, I hope it is Alvin's and everything will be ok.

    Rebecca will not abandon her baby, Her dialogue in episode 2 indicates she wants to keep the baby.

    The dialogue is in the lodge scene after Rebecca tell's Alvin to get her a drink.
  • It won't be. This is the ZA.

  • Wouldn't be too unusual in literature. Of course, the most famous example would be Oedipus Tyrannos.

    She'd need a good reason though. I could see it happen if they were about to be surrounded by walkers and the baby was crying.

  • If it was a stillborn then it would change into a zombie during labour

  • Rebecca definitely will keep her baby. I think she was worried the baby wasn't hers only because she knew Alvin would be mad. I think she will love it no matter what. I heard that it was confirmed that the baby is indeed Carver's, but you never know. I could've been lied to by the Wiki.
  • If they get surrounded by walkers and Rebecca just does a Maybelles , and walks off without saying anything to the group..

  • interesting plot twist, I like it.

  • I read it a couple of years ago

    Did you read it in greek?

    The story was incredibly depressing. Like i think the dramatic irony is intended to gradually long to see oedipus fall as he gets more and more violent and arrogant, and when he does we're just left feeling like complete dicks

  • It doesn't even matter, Rebecca is going to *see spoilers* anyway and Clementine will take care of it.

  • Sometimes people do things they regret later. This arriving at the Howe's and "making things more complicated" seems like one of those things Rebecca got caught up in voluntarily, and when Carver became further set in what he thought was the best way to manage the community, she and Alvin decided they didn't like it there and escaped with the others who were planning to leave.

    She won't abandon it. In episode 3, she confessed her fears that it might be Carver's, and about how difficult it could be to care for a baby in the new violent world, but she does express comfort in "meeting someone new". Whoever she made the baby with, she'll keep it. Cuz no matter whose it is, it's also hers.

    It's about a man (Oedipus) who is fated to kill his father and marry his mother, the king and queen of Thebes. When he is a baby his parents leave him to die on a mountainside in order to escape the prophecy, but the child is rescued by a shepherd and taken to Corinth and is raised by the shepherd and his wife. When he is a young man, he discovers the prophecy about himself and, thinking that the shepherd and his wife were his real parents, he fled Corinth.

    He decides to travel. On the road he meets a man who insults him gravely and Oedipus kills him. He then finds out a city nearby is being cursed by a sphinx, and the only way to save it is by solving a riddle. He does so, and he marries the queen of the city, whose husband has just been murdered by someone, as her gratitude for saving them all, and they have four children. Much later on, a new plague hits the city, and it is said that the plague will only be lifted if the murderer of the king is expelled from the land and killed. Oedipus, the new king, embarks on a long search to discover who the murderer is. He eventually discovers that the man he killed after fleeing Corinth was actually the king. The queen then realises that this must mean Oedipus was actually her son, and she kills herself out of shame.

    Oedipus discovers the body and stabs both of his eyes out with his mothers clothe pins, and begs to leave the city, telling his children that they will never marry because of their incestuous heritage.

    So yeah, pretty depressing.

  • I'll take any outcome aside from the baby being a zombie and eating it's way through her belly, Alien style.

  • The baby has no fault so why would he/she be abandoned? Cruelty
  • Same as everyone else. Better to start early in an apocalypse than suffer their loss later

    It suck because now the baby wont have a dad. And possibly wont have a mom either.

  • Maybelle was never got the character development she was entitled to,

  • Are people forgetting about christa. To me its obvious that rebecca will die after having her child and christa will take care of it after losing her own child. Its no way a coincidence that Christa is heavily pregnant at the start of the season, imply the child dies and then have us meet a heavily pregnant lady. Christa will grant omids last wish and call the baby Omid jr, unless its a girl.
  • Rebecca will keep the baby. As others have mentioned, in EP 2 she talks about how much she wants the baby and how close she feels to it already. Even if the baby is biologically Carver's, Rebecca will think of it as Alvin's. Now that Alvin is dead, the baby is a piece she can have to remember Alvin.

    It really isn't, not definitively, anyway. Alvin's voice actor simply made a joking comment on an interview about how he hated Carver because he 'knocked up his girl.' I think it was a joke more than anything. VAs aren't always entirely in the loop about the plot, especially since Alvin doesn't even make it to the baby's birth.

  • Although it's never really explained what happened to Christa's baby, if it was still born or died shortly after birth, but Christa is indeed still alive after losing the baby. I don't think if the baby is still born it will turn into a Walker and kill Rebecca or anyone else involved with the birthing process. Then again, I can see in typical TellTale fashion the baby dying shortly after being birthed dying, and then biting the person holding it. *sighs*
