Connections between episode 1 and episode 5

So here's some interesting things I noticed.

Lee begins the game in handcuff, and ends the game in handcuffs.

The first zombie of the game was a cop, so was the last zombie.

The first time Lee sees Clementine, a zombie is grabbing at his legs and Clementine rescues him by bringing him a hammer. The last time Lee sees Clementine, a zombie is grabbing at her legs and he rescues her by giving her a bat. Also, in both cases it took multiple blows to put the zombie down.

Last, and I think most interestingly. In episode 1 after the car crash, Lee picks up a shotgun shell that is on the ground, shortly after that he sees a silhouette of Clementine in the distance (I don't think it's ever verified in-game that it's her, but if you go back and look at it again, it's gotta be her). At the end of the game, Clementine picks up a shotgun shell and sees two silhouettes in the distance.




If I missed any, let me know.

    It's, not necessary. I didn't handcuffed him. I don't understand why many people pay much attention to this

    It may not be necessary, but it is known that writers of any kind (games, books, movies, tv series) enjoy making connections in details between the ending and the beginning.

    Symbolism, fun or fucking with the audience, that's dependent on the writer, I guess.

    I didn't either. Didn't see the point, since I was having Clementine shoot Lee anyway.
