Kenny dead or alive? (massively merged threads)

Am I the only one who thinks, that Kenny just might survived? I saw both ways, but none of them actually showed his dead. And in the ending reviews, it says, that we "lost him in a group of walkers".

So is he dead?

  • Eh maybe. It was at first, maybe that is why you feel that way. Gammin said when it was first recorded it was clear Kenny died, but did a retake to make the 'death scene' more subtle.

    Kenny didn't want to die, he wanted to make it. He wanted to believe in hope. He wanted to help Ben because of pity, that he felt bad for being a jerk to him. Probably also saw it as a Shawn position. He was going to die, but Kenny didn't want to leave another helpless victim.

    I know that I were to think as Kenny, he knew that if there was ANY way he could make it out, it wouldn't be with Lee there too.

    Kenny didn't wish to give up, as you said with the talk about Katjaa. That you don't give up until the very end. He also spoke of being a better friend, so he wanted to redeem himself. I don't think he'd die before truly accomplishing that.

    If you talk between him and Lee, I forget what you have to choose, but he will say how either way, it's okay. Either he saves the boy/he survives, or he gets to see his family again. However, when the walkers close in, he seems to have a change of heart and makes a run for it, ending Ben quickly. I don't know why, but I think he had his reasons.

    He wasn't sacrificing himself, there was no reason to. And it wasn't a suicide, because he spoke about how it is never the answer. I think it is a special conversation(as in you have to choose just the right responses). I can understand your thoughts though, and he could be dead. I am a huge TWD fan though, and if there is one thig I know, if you don't see the body, they aren't dead. They will clarify with time. I can hope he is alive, and it seems you are a fan of him as well. I think the chances he survived the death scene are higher than him dying, even if Telltale only gives him a brief re-intro before snatching him again to truly kill him. I can think this because Telltale is low on veteran/returning characters. You have Clem, Omid, Christa, Molly(possible), Kenny(possible), Lilly(now possible). I think that's it unless Lilly used Carley's pistol to kill Carley/Doug xD (reference to episode 2 with Andy). Just gotta hope!
  • Kenny better pull a Tyreese on this one x)
  • Kenny's scene isn't really a death scene. More of a "Lee needs to confront the stranger alone" scene to get Kenny out of the picture in a believable way.

    those 'death sounds' were made by the walkers. In the one with Ben, most sounds are made of Ben getting eaten after dying.
    I don't see how Ben could make any noises after being mercy killed by Kenny

    If he wanted to live he wouldn't of stayed behind, and there was no way out of either scenario.

    Yeah, I kinda feel that way, too. Though I'm not totally convinced that he's either dead, undead, or alive.

    Personally, whatever TTG decides to do would be fine with me. I trust 'em!

    Dude, seriously? a body getting torn apart and eaten as walkers eat him doesn't make a lot of noise? Brie never said much, but the walkers biting her made alot of noise.
  • @King, if he wanted to die he'd of done it long ago. He was helping Lee find that little girl, but he was also trying to keep the group alive. He probably thinks he should be the one to die over anyone, but I seriously soubt he was trying to die "either I save the boy or I get to see them again..." Christa scene "Just get her out of here! Go! I'll be *sounds of struggle* get off of me!" So you don't know. If you talk to him about the dead couple how it might have been the right thing to do, he'll comment that you don't just give up, that you fight it as long as you are alive. I believe after that it was never suicide. He was trying for justice.
  • Oh wow! Someone found proof! And it's already things we've seen before. Great

    Honestly, if they bring Kenny back, I'll be severely disappointing in the game. Hell, if they bring him back in season two, then I probably won't play season three. Because at that point it's no longer a gritty realistic game about what would happen in the real world if zombies came in. It's now a game where a man with no way out of an alleyway without getting bitten escapes. I mean, The Walking Dead game is all about a good narrative, and there's no way Kenny could escape, and honestly, no reason for him to do so. All of his family members are dead, he's helping a man he may or may not like, find a little girl. He's done his part, and he's helped christa out of a hole and mercy killed Ben. He's done his part and he's justified what he's done as a sacrifice.
