Team Lily to the end (appreciation thread)

I guess I may be the only one here who would still support Lily if she shows up at some future point in time.
I appreciate her leadership skills, her selflessness (having to make all those little decisions is really difficult) and her reasoning. She tried to keep this group together, she did her very best but some other Kenny always tried to have it their way, always consider what's only best for his family.
I think we all agree it was difficult giving the rations the first time in episode two. We got a glimpse of what she has to do every day. People hated us for those choices, so they hate her even more for having to do it every day. But there's no one else who would do it.

She was still pretty reasonable until Kenny murdered her father. People can complain that he saved them and all that crap... but you couldn't have known for sure and that's the truth. He overreacted and again being the selfish asshole he is, he did the easiest choice for him. Eliminate the enemy and undermine the leader's authority.

In episode 3 we see things haven't changed. Lily is still the only one to really tries to protect the group. Lee, of course, helps always and as much as he can, but others like Kenny... they didn't even feel bad for what they did in episode 2. Kenny ruined this group and yet he still wanted things to go his way. He kept pushing Lily without really doing anything for the group. He was determined to abandon all.
Carley... she didn't really do anything. She could've stepped in and helped Lily when she saw she was about to snap... but she didn't. The only thing she actually did was tease Lee, look cute, and avoid participation in almost every important discussion. The downfall in episode 3 is partially her fault as well.
When the bandits attacked the group it was again Lily that came to the rescue to a group that hated her. Kenny wouldn't swallow my disrespect for him and actually tried to get me killed too many times in this episode.
Ben... and Kenny really started a chain reaction. With both their stupidity combined they managed to indirectly kill Carley, Katjaa and Duck as well destroy the group from within.
Both cowards and both DUBM as a bag of hammers.
I would so love to see them gone in episode 4 & 5. I don't need stupid people in my group, people who know nothing about responsibility or humanity.

It was sad to see Lily snap but I guess there is a line as to where a person can take it. In the end of the day I'm sure she'll regret her choices and will eventually learn from them. She kills Lorry cause she believes they are threatening her group. When she sees how wrong she was she offs the Governor. That's a pretty redeeming deed in my book, one that clearly shows she actually develops.

I would certainly love to see more of her in future episodes/seasons.

So, am I the only one? :D Even if I am, I will still be defending this position to the end :P

    To be honest I just hope Lilly is by Lee's side when shit goes down in episode 5.
    Cool that another person have the same feeling about it :) I would LOVE that.

    BTW, when is this special book about Lilly comming out ? (I'm from germany, but need it when it comes out)
  • I hope that at least her personality is the same. Although, I'm not sure how this can be if her past is not the same.

    I still consider game Lilly (comic book Lilly) because when Telltale created her, they still though they were making the canon Lilly.

    Seriously, a red post will be much appreciated.
    I think it was released yesterday.
  • Dang it! I don't see how book Lilly could be as cool as game Lilly, this really takes away a little bit of my desire to read the book. It feels really cheap to just declare game Lilly essentially a different character from who we were told she was when the game was released. Oh well, gmae Lilly will always be my #4.
  • This book is a follow up of Rise of the Governor so I guess it is going to be great. Will see.
  • humm grumble grumble i know the walking dead is robert kirkman's thing but if tell tale had done the same to him as in tell tale hearing about a character that kirkman was making then confirming they were designing a game to finish of the story of the character in the comic, then kirkman makes the character separates them from the story then tell tale says it is actually a game about a similar person but not the same one, i think kirkman would be mad, maybe even expensive lawyer mad, so it is a bad move of kirkmans to make them different people.

    i thought they may be a bit different but it seems to be a different world or at least an alternate timeline than the game and the comic/book are set, unless it is just a whole different lilly that could actually meet the other lilly?? :confused:
  • Well I haven't read it yet so I can't say for sure. The fact that none of the game characters is mentioned doesn't mean anything. She might have decided to not speak about them or lie about her father.
    If that's not the case let's storm Kirkman's mail with angry fan letters :D
  • Well, crap.

    There went my interest in the book.

    I like THIS Lilly.....
  • maybe the next book is called "when lilly met lilly"

    It's not, within the first two chapters you find out what happened to her dad (or I guess this version of her dad) and she's not speaking of it, she's remembering it so unless she's lying to herself, it's not the same lily.
  • I haven't read the book yet, but I read a review that said they were disappointed in this Lily because she's a very different character (less of a badass). :(
