Screw Logic

Clementine can't lift a giant bottle of water; kicks down a door with only a couple of tries. Fuck logic.

    Don't forget that she can drag a grown man across a street to get him to safety.

    But can't pick up a giant water bottle.

  • Lifting that bottle wasn't life-or-death. Kicking down the door and dragging Lee to safety were.

    That being said, yeah, I also called bullshit when she kicked that door in. Granted, I don't know how structurally sound motor home doors tend to be, but surely it must require more force than that to bust through, no?

  • It's a ZA so using logic the game never stood a chance XD

  • Clem goes roid rage sometimes. This isn't the most illogical thing in the story, anyways.

    Adrenaline adds to her strength and besides, just because she can kick a door down or drag an adult through a horde of Walkers, doesn't necessarily mean it would be possible for her to carry a large bottle of water.

  • Adrenaline and your legs are basically the strongest part of your body (as yoy walk on them all the time)

  • Adrenaline, that did the magic. I've heard of moms that could lift a car to set free their children.

  • You wouldn't like Clem when she's angry ;)

  • I love how none of them thought to come up with the genius of rolling the water bottles to where they needed to be.

  • Hey, Im only a couple years older than Clem, and I can lift pretty heavy things and do tough jobs, but when we go out and get jugs of water...I just can't lift them. Those damn things are heavier than they look

  • Yeahh, kicking down that door...I couldn't believe it. I didn't even attempt when it prompted me at first because I naturally assumed a child doesn't have the capability to bash a door in. That was weird.

  • I'm pretty sure when I was around 11 (I'm female), I brought down a locked door with a running kick, though it was kinda accidental; I didn't think I'd actually get it open!...Anyway, pretty sure the door jamb is still broken to this day. XD

    Also, water jugs are heavy at that age!

  • It might puncture. That would suck, but worth trying in a pinch.

  • i lived in a motor home most have weak doors plus clementine has bin walking for 2 years cross the country that helps with muscle growth clementine has strong legs and she is also killing walkers with wepons even on little food muscle growth continues even a little at a time over two years

  • They can't worth risking it.... then again.... they don't really go back for it if Mike doesn't take them with him.

  • I don't remember clem dragging someone but what I do know about trailer homes doors that there extremely week pretty much as strong as a out house bathroom. so when I saw that I could see it being possible including the killer zombie behind can make you a bit pump up.

  • About that door kicking..

    Clem used Clem smash

    It's super effective

    Caravan doors are very weak. They're like plaster board.

    Clem dragging Lee was a bit weird, but we don't actually know how far she dagged him. They hadn't made it that far out of the hotel, so it could of just been from the pavement to the jewellery shop. That's not really far considering his condition of getting weaker and weaker.

  • Not that illogical if you think about it. Like others said, you can do some crazy things when the adrenaline is pumping.

    If there's walkers near by, Clem could get her hat to grow 10 times bigger and make it fly away to safety. They're saving it for 205. Watch.

  • well bottles of water that big are a lot heavier than you think trust me try go and lift one by yourself without applying that much strength and then say that there is no way a 11 year old girl would be able to lift it without some help and my guess for kicking the door would be adrenaline since you know she would have died if the door didn't open

  • Well, the door might have been kind of week from the walkers banging on it. Plus it did take two kicks. Not to mention adrenaline.

  • Adrenaline can amplify your strength massively.

    I'm sick of people saying this- so yeah, it's a zombie apocalypse, dead people are walking around and eating living people. With an idea so abstract you might think that maybe other parts would be kept realistic in order to allow the audience to believe they're watching what might actually happen, and really experience the in-game emotions? If it didn't capture at least some element of reality, no one would watch it, it'd just be too random with children having super-human strength. That's why people start to question the logicality of some occurrences in game- it being a zombie apocalypse is no reason for it to be totally unrealistic.

  • I live in a similar trailer and I can tell that these places have cheap ass doors and cheap as locks since one time the door broke so I had to kick it in and it was a lot easier than I thought it would be

  • Well then I stand corrected. I guess it was fairly realistic after all.

  • Those kind of bottles are made of hard plastic and don't puncture easily. If some rocks are the sharpest things on the ground that wouldn't really be an issue.
