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.

  • There's no way that Telltale has settled on who they are this early. They could be Christa/Omid, or pretty much anyone else. Could one of them be Molly? Does she die in any possible playthroughs? I really wanted her character to stick around.

    Her status is unknown. In Crawford, if you don't take Clementine with you, she gets attacked by walkers. (it's the scene where Ben takes that hammer.) You can accidentally shoot her and she'll just flee from the group of walkers.
  • Umm, uhhh, I just wanna say that they remind me of Jasper and Horace from 101 Dalmatians:

  • They're both walker models. The fat one appears in the episode 4 trailer when Lee's climbing the tower and the other one I'm pretty sure is the other one is too.
  • This was mentioned in another thread, and a Telltale employee confirmed that they were deliberately generic placeholder models because they knew people would view them like this, and want it open for speculation.

    Edit. Here and here. :)
  • I say it's Christa and Omid. They are the most likely, considering that they were likely actively looking for Lee and Clem after separating at the sign.

    Guess who was right.

  • We don't exactly know 100% who it was. Anything could have happened in those 7-8 months

    damn man. you did some digging lol

  • Well.... Would it be possible to use this program on the "Next time on The Walking Dead" Cutscene, to see who Clementine refers to when she says "I thought you were dead"
