Speculation on the anonymous silhouettes from Episode 5.

Meet the low-poly models of the phantoms from the end of the Walking Dead: episode 5. You cannot see the untextured models themselves in the game, but the developers used their shadows to create an illusion. The left man has the same character model as Doug, the deceased mechanic. Looks a bit modified to me, with the hair and all. The right man, despite looking like the Heavy on diet pills and anencephaly, utilizes Ben Paul's character model. It is possible these characters are not even the people seen on the hill; they may just be placeholders, so Christa and Omid believers, hang in there.
I'm sorry, I can't find any angles of this scene, because the image credit belongs to Hallowseve15, so I can't provide any more exact information. Not sure if this qualifies for a thread, but hey, it's worth a try. Typing this in a hurry, so I'm sorry if I missed something important.

  • The silhouettes are the walkers formerly known as Omid and Christa. Omid succumbed to his wound and bit Christa upon turning.
  • Well, that´s interesting. Still, it´s just a placeholder, so whether or not they are really the people on that hill remains to be seen.
  • Placeholders. The guy on the left has Doug's character model while the guy on the right has Ben's character model.

    I want the two to be Omid and Christa, but it's more than likely that the two are completely new characters.

    So how'd Omid get so fat?
  • They are just placeholders.

    I think the two silhouettes were Omid and Chista.
  • I also think that the two persons you saw at the end were Christa and Omid. So if these two models were used in that scene, they were probably just placeholders.
  • I also think they're are placeholder models but I don't understand why they did'nt just use the original models of Omid and Christa then.
  • They could be placeholders. It's Telltale. They could do any funny shit with us.
  • looks too detailed to be placeholders and if it was Omid and Christina, Clem wouldnt have hesitated to approach them.

    None of us could tell who they were, if I was Clem I'd be pretty hesitant. They don't look TOO detailed. Kinda look like some of the walker models.
