Lee's fate. (SPOILERS)

edited November 2012 in General Discussion
As soon as lee was bitten, why didn't he frantically search for an axe or something, to chop off his arm? He just seemed to accept his fate, when I'm pretty sure he could have found something which would suffice, had he bothered looking. Exactly how long could Lee have left the infection, before it was too late? How quick does it spread? Is it too late for Lee to do anything about in episode 5?
Discuss

Edit: Probably should have gone in the other sub forum. Move if you wish.

    I don't know if they knew about the method.

    This. Nobody told them about that.

    Yeah, zombie apocalypse is a new thing for Lee and company. He probably had no idea that would work even if he could somehow pull it off. Timing wise, I would save a minute or two after the bite especially a small one like his. Too bad the scene cut away and they were in Vernon's hideout, it means it's too late to save Lee that way.

    yeah there's no point in trying to deny it. Lee is screwed. It's just a matter of time now.

    Will chopping off the hand stop him from becoming the walkers? He could have died from excess bloodlost if he does that. and revive as walker

    I think he is done, I agree.
    The ending is so clear if something really weird and persuading won't happen. The matter here is, how will his end come? Will his death be epic or not, this is all matter for me from now on .
    There may be the saddest and radical ending in game industry waiting for us next week.
    We'll wait and see, how Telltale come through with this.

    He did cut off that guy's leg in order to try and save him in Ep 2 (if you chose that). However the guy didn't survive...so maybe he thought better of it?

    God damn it Lee, WHY DID YOU HAVE TO GET BIT?

    if you have read the comics and/or watched the series, then you would know that it's very possible to survive a zombie bite, without dying from excess bloodlost.
    (Dale in the comics and Hershall in the series)
    The point is moot now however, as Lee left it too long.

    It makes for good drama. ;)

    He would probably need Vernon or some other sort of doctor as well considering
    Allen in the comics died after they tried to amputate his leg
    .

    Since it looks like Vernon has flown the coop, things keep stacking against Lee's favor.

    When I played Episode 4 I never knew he could amputate his arm to stop the infection. I watched the TV episode the next day, couldn't believe it. I felt like if I knew I could've saved Lee!

    Yeah, I believed that once Lee met Vernon again in episode 5 and confronted him about his bite, Vernon would tell him to chop his arm off with a meat cleaver or something. But from the new screenshot, it's not looking good.

    Not even that Lee doesnt know the method. But why is everyone insisting he could cut off his arm. First off and realistically the chances of surviving cutting off a limb so violently is only high in movies. Think of the pain and blood loss. I rather just take my fate and wait it out or have someone shoot me right before I turn.

    Why does everyone keep using the screenshot as evidence? it chould easily be lighting for the reason Lee's pale.. I did a second playthrough and theres multiple times Lee had that exact same "Pale Look" Alot being in episode 1 So that pretty much eliminates THAT possiblity.

    Plus Kirkman never stated it was the b ite that killed you, Just the infection, the bite is VERY minor (Just three scratches) So he might have longer than normal, and might have a chance to chop off his arm in "Mercy" The achivement picture looks like lee holding his ampuated arm.

    I'm not giving up hope yet. Rub it in my face as much as you want when the episode is out and done with. I am still holding hope Lee can make it through this.

    Wrong arm, Chief.
