K..... Yes there are two optional endings, and both seem to end with Lee dead. But how can that be? You the player are Lee. And we already know there will be a second season.

So, lets explore the options.

First and most obvious, is the optional ending where Lee is just left behind. So the option of him being dead could be that he just passed out due to the loss of blood.

And in the alternative option.... Clem shoots Lee. Kinda of a final blow with absolute certainty that lee is dead. Or is it? I mean Clem did just learn how to shoot a gun and the all important feature of her closing her eyes as she fired could be a miss shot on an already passed out Lee.

So you see..... there is still hope you will be playing as Lee in Season 2.

Thoughts or conjectures? Because I'm convinced this is how it will be.

I believe I answer everyone's questions regarding how he can survive through out this thread.... but due to a troll, I refuse to continue with pointless banter after page 5. However if you have a real question that I have not answered I will attempt to answer it...

But think about this point first; there is NO proof that Lee is dead.

  • Yeah, it would be cool watch him to survive, i don't care about the hand... He would even make it without it... Or something like. troll season 2 beginning : Lee wakes up in the house from ep 4, next to clem and realize that was dream or Waking up after Amputation
  • ^Then has sex with Carley and they have a baby that Clem helps them raise like a sister.^


  • If Lee is alive in season 2 I'll be majorly disappointed in this game and probably won't buy the next season. :/
  • Lol she jerked the gun to the right before shooting him. Lee's still dead though.
  • Wouldn't mind if it was a dream. Wouldn't suprise me either. On the RV lee dreams then. I think TTG stated lee is dead. So if they brought lee back via dream, they wouldnt have lied about him dying because he did die in the dream. Just sayin.

    In some people's playthroughs Lee has two arms, in some he has 1. It'd be unrealistic for Telltale to make five more episodes with Lee given the both scenarios. Plus, I don't think there's people immune to the zombie bite in the Walking Dead universe, so people who didn't chop off his arm would just have a dying Lee on their hands, and I don't think Telltale would do that either.

    EDIT: Lee doesn't have any blood donors around. He's chained up weak in a room. I don't think he has much energy to call out for help either because he was so weak around Clem. I think he's a goner.
    Well, I've supposed this idea months ago, and now people look into it? xD Anyway, how do you know there isn't a donor? I SERIOUSLY doubt Clem carried/dragged Lee's body into that store alone, and then closed the door that Clem AND a weak Lee couldn't even slightly open together. Someone could have been watching. Vernon is a doctor, and so could patch Lee up. Kenny could have been there. Molly even. One of Vernon's people.

    People say it'd be a shame of a story for Lee to be alive after all that happened. Well, you either want a tailored game, or not. If you make all the right choices, in season 1.5 or even 2, who you play as could find various assortment of Lees:

    1.)Lee, alive without a hand, uncuffed to radiator and unbitten.
    2.)Lee, alive without hand, cuffed, but unbitten.
    3.)Lee, alive without hand, cuffed and bitten.
    4.)Lee, dead without(with) hand, cuffed(uncuffed) and bitten(not). Shot.
    5.)Lee, undead with hand, cuffed(uncuffed) and bitten other times(or not).
    Note: This is assuming Clementine did not miss.

    And that would determine whether or not you save Lee. The decisions you make that would allow for Lee to survive. You all think him dead because of what is shown and said. Never in the credits does it say Lee died, as far as is known he simply fainted.

    When he faints at the morgue, many can argue it was from the bite. But how long from the bite to the morgue was it, thirty minutes? Most bite victims don't last 24 hours, but who truly knows whether it was of a bite that he fainted or simply exhaustion/dehydration/starvation.

    You cannot say Lee is dead, for there is no confirmation of his death. Not in the credits, not in results, nor in the game. You do not see him turn, nor do you see him get shot. You see Clem fire the gun, and Lee's breath can be heard after :P. Telltale can say all it wants, it does not stand for the truth. Creators of games/books/movies/shows etc. say things simply to influence the public of what they imply. They could bring him back if they wanted to, as a surprise. A rule of the Walking Dead: Noone is dead until they reanimate. Larry survived the heart attack if you tried to perform CPR fast enough, you see him breathe right before Kenny smashes his head in. Tyresse is left to the walkers, and yet comes back alive. In the show, the prisoner who is locked in surrounded by zombies with no weapons manages not only to escape, but later pose a major threat to Rick's group. Just my opinion though, but until I see him lurking around as a walker or a bullet through his forehead I say otherwise.
  • You play the game as lee as soon as he gets shot or turns the screen gos black so yes lee is dead .... I miss him greatly :(
  • You may play as Lee, but you usually don't see things from his perspective. it's not 'first-person'. At the end of every episode the screen goes black, but Lee still made it to episode 5 xD. I can't say he is alive, and I'm stubborn to believe otherwise. I'm sure he'll be seen sooner or later, cuz I never shot him. So I will know full well of his condition, and get to kill him myself. But until I see him myself, he will be alive to me :,( It's like a wound; you don't look at it and hope it gets better. You don't mess with it, and you don't panic or assume. You just wait it out, and hope it turns out alright! "He's not like the others! Jesus, all y'all are just making it worse!"-Kenny

    I think it takes a good screen writer to make a decision like that both in movies or games, to make the main character die...
    I knolw it can look like a bad thing but to me it's not. Honestly I'm sick of all those TV series in which there's a good ending and you never get surprised.
    It's not that because I wanna have fun I'm happy that Lee died, but I'm happy that someone wrote a screenplay warning us "Hey, next time you play a game, watch a TV series or watch a movie, do know your favorite character could die!", like some others did before.
    A new series with all brand new characters is not a bad idea... In the end I like that developpers and writers read our opinions over here but I think it's not a good one that they give us exactly what we want and that's why most great TV series were cut off just based on the viewing share, but that's a different story...
    I agree there. I'm not saying what the writers should do, or how Telltale should proceed, but I'm just stating that The Walking Dead never puts all it's cards on the table. Always expect a surprise, a jump scare, a death, a survival, betrayal, agonizing choice, etc. I have faith that they can continue to make a great series.
  • I dunno if someone new can feel lees shoes. Hope it all was just a bad dream. Like on RV.
