Clementine to be bitten in 'No Going Back'?

posted by HarjKS on - Viewed by 3K users

Do you guys think a walker will bite Clementine through her jacket on her left arm (where the dog bit her) and she'll have to amputate it. She could disagree to cutting it off but Kenny could argue that Clem cut Saritas arm off without permission so they have a right. Luke would be worried. I'm not sure about Bonnie or Mike.

But with the whole season talking about bites, amputation and such. What do you guys think? Will Clementine be bitten in 'No Going Back'?

  • As much as I want to say I don't want TellTale to take the same route as the first season, she might get bitten. I feel as if she does, the difference will be that she survives the amputation and clears of the infection in time. Although if that were the case, I'm not sure she'd be the protagonist for Season 3, because it's not like we could do many important choices with one arm. We'll see in due time.

  • If she's gets bitten, Lee's death would be pointless. Lee fought to his last breath to protect Clem and for her to survive in this new world.

    • She already survived at least 16 months after his death, I think Lee's death is already justified. I'm probably the only person on these forums who genuinely would be extremely saddened, but not have the game ruined for me if Clem got bit.

      • I agree, and I'm worried that Telltale is going to let themselves bend to the fan's will too much.

        If Clementine dies, so be it. I won't like it, but it's how The Walking Dead works. Fans shouldn't be able to stop it because they spam NOCLEMNOBUY on the forums.

        • Killing off the closest thing to a central character isn't "realistic" or 'edgy', it's bad storytelling for the sake of nothing but shock value. It's easier and actually more 'cowardly' to write off children and other vulnerable characters in an apocalypse than to actually take the effort to make their survival convincing. And what, so we can go back to playing a tough guy again?

          • fun fact : the people who say finishing Clem's story this season is ok are the ones who say there's nothing wrong with this season's writing, so don't really take these people seriously because they have absolutely no idea what good storytelling is.

            • Not true at all. I think that there's a LOT wrong with the writing in this season, but I wouldn't hold anything against Telltale if Clementine died.

            • Hey, guess what, I'm planning on becoming a writer, and have focused on studying what is good writing since 4th grade, and I think finishing Clem's story this season is fine. Season 1 was Lee's story, and that is the story that Telltale wanted to tell. Lee's story ends with his death, and that's just how it goes. I'm not even mildly upset that Lee died, at least from a game standpoint. It was heartbreaking, yeah, but that's what they wanted. If they want to continue Clem's story, that's fine. Kill her off? I'm fine with that. Leave it ambiguous, and just transition to a different character? That's fine. It's Telltale's story, and this is what your presented with. You don't have to like it, but don't ask them to change it because you don't want 'em to do something. If it's well presented, then I'll agree with anything. So far, season 2 is flawed, very much so, but I love it for what it is.

              • Hey, guess what, I know a lot of people who went to school to become writers and after years and years they ended up being shitty writers so you can't really pull out the "I have a degree in X so my opinion about this is flawless" card.

                If you want something that will really help on your writing then you should play season 1 and 2 multiple times and make really in-depth comparisons of both games' writing instead of sucking up to Telltale and saying "it's ok if they kill Clem off because that means that's the story they wanted to tell". No matter how you see it, killing Clem or ending her story this season is GARBAGE writing, don't really need a Ph.D in writing to know that.

                • But what you said at first was: "the people who say finishing Clem's story this season is ok are the ones who say there's nothing wrong with this season's writing, so don't really take these people seriously because they have absolutely no idea what good storytelling is." I just wanted to say that I actually write, and I think it's fine to end her story here, if they can do it well, which I believe they absolutely can. What you said was incorrect, and kinda mean :P But eh it's the internet, what are ya gonna do. I have my opinion, you have your opinion, I'd be fine with playing as Clem in season 3, but wouldn't mind if they got everything wrapped up this season.

          • So it's literally impossible to tell a good story involving Clementine's death? That's honestly hard to believe.

          • This has nothing to do with the situation, but you are currently my favorite person on the forums right now. I have agreed with literally everything you've said.

        • killing the PC two seasons in a row would really make this game suck way to predictable no surprise then we'd all ways know how every season will end no one will buy it anymore we play games like this for the story no point if we knew the endings

      I don't think Lee expected her to never die.

  • I don't want it to happen but there's a possibility it will.

    If it does, I predict she'll react like how Lee did when he was bit but this time, the scene will cut to black and credits will roll as well as our minds.

    I seriously hope not though, LONG LIVE CLEM!

  • It would make for a much more interesting character for Season 3 if you played as a walker-bite survivor, a one armed teenager at that.

  • I don't think Telltale has the guts....If they do something like that, i think it would be better for it to be a bite in the leg. At least then maybe Arvo can help creating something for her to walk? I don't know, in my opinion it might be a little easier to play as a person with both arms. (If she's the protagonist of the next season)

  • Imagine if Clementine was immune... That.Would.be.awesome.

  • She couldn't die (Clem = $$$), but if she does, it probably won't be a bite that gets her. Repeating the same formula would be dumb, hypothermia would be an option. After Rebeccas hypothermia death also unlikely but fuck it... Here's the closing scene

    She all alone with that baby which is pretty near dead, everyone else is dead, Kenny, Luke, that generic black dude, she's tired, she falls down and craw herself next to a tree and go to sleep aaand dies baby in her hands, just like Rebecca... THE END. Thank you for playing, buy our DLC 900 days which is going to be 'super important' in S3.

  • It's possible I guess. I wouldn't be surprised if Clem got bitten. But it would seem like sort of a anti climatic way for her to go out.
