    Or start by the camp fire and have both Omid and Christa there and when Winston and the group are attacking them, you would have the choice between saving Omid or Christa. Then one or the other runs away presumably to be seen later in the season.

  • that shot to the chest was unecessary, and fuk that skinny bitch scavenger

    Just a pre-emptive thank you for keeping spoilers out of the thread title and for tagging your post. You've NO idea how pleasant

  • The whole thread's spoiler tagged, I don't think I need another one.

    No spoiler tag mr mod?

  • clementine learned a hard lesson, by not doing what Omid told her to do (keeping her things on her) and my jaw totally hit the floor

  • Omid unconfirmed, get unhype for Omid. I didn't think it was so much lazy as it was a episode starting gut punch but I understand how everyone here feels, I loved Omid.

  • Probably a miscarriage.

    Yeah i'm with you there. I REALLY thought they'd last long enough...I'm still wondering what happened to Christa's baby...

  • yeah, i was laughing when caught myself at the thought "haha, there can be only one..Omid! >:D"

    because bad writing.

  • Actually yeah,there is no way to prevent him from dieing?That was the very first thing I thought after seeing that scene.As they simply slapped us with Omid's death,I thought it was a consequence of not giving her the hat or something similar.

    The problem isn't that he dies,its how and how soon he died.

  • I saw it coming as soon as he opened the door. I was like, "JUST GRAB THE GUN! HURRY! Oh no... the door! GO GO GO- NOOO! Dangit woman, when I get that gun Clemmy's getting- Oh hello Christa, I suppose- Oww? Well then... Nice shot?" So sad... TBH I'd rather have Omid alive than Christa, but from the looks of it neither of them made it :/

  • Aye,but gap between EP1 and EP2 was 3 months,and everything was pretty much explaind.In S2 though,the gap was 16 months,and nothing was explained.16 months is like 3 Season 1's...what the hell happened during that time?Who have they met,who did they lose,etc.,etc.,etc.We never get to see what exactly happened to Christa's baby,why did Christa lose all the hope all of a sudden,and what happened that cause Clem's character to change to much.

    The bits about skipping without telling you the whole story was very similar to the jump between S1E1 and S1E2 though, where the rai

  • Aye,got the mouse indicator disappear too....also,not sure if anyone else encountered that,but while entering Sarah's room,Nick base model was standing there the entire time,with Clem moving through it in conversations.

  • I will quote myself from a previous post: "The problem isn't that the character dies,its how and how soon he died."

    OMG what a stupid thread -_- Did you ever read a Walking Dead comic book in your fucking life ??? EVERYONE DIES, THERE IS NO HAPPY END, THAT'S THE POINT OF THE WHOLE FUCKING THING................

  • It was never explained,and to make it worse,even though they already had one,Telltale went on and introduced a brand new pregnant character.

    Did i miss something because the fate of Christas unborn baby was never elaborated on, i was made to asume that it didn't survive. Was that the point?

  • I think the beginning was just a way to combine the two seasons and get rid rid of omid and christa.

  • edited December 2013

    What if they made an update to 400 Days.. that made one of the 'watchdogs' Omid?

    The feels on the bus go round and round... round and round.. round and round...

  • A character not acting how you want them to act or acting in what you think the most rational way doesn't make it unrealistic. People dying easily preventable deaths are also not unrealistic

    Anyway the girl had a gun pointed right at Clem if Omid jumped on her the gun might have gone off and hit Clementine or even himself. He was moving slowly in an effort to try take care of the situation as safely as he could. He just forgot to close the door quietly behind him which was a mistake just as reasonable as Clem not carrying her gun into the stall while looking for the bottle

    it was unrealistic he could have ran at her and he didnt have to die like that, hope they didnt kill christa too

  • christa did not die

  • Hey TJ your post is pointless

  • hhmmm just figured you should have since we have other users here still using spoiler tags as well. but your right maybe not.

    The whole thread's spoiler tagged, I don't think I need another one.

  • That's a pretty good point but I look at it like this, at the end of season 1, we all wanted Clem to get to Omid and Christa (well most). We (or I) thought it would be a sure with the three. So when Omid was killed, it was a message that there aren't many "happy endings" we would like to happen but rather a punch in the gut that things will get worse. Those are my thoughts on Omid getting killed so early in the episode.

  • The fact that the needle was so big compared to what a doctor would use. Yes it would hurt like hell :O

    Trust me, it hurts like hell.

  • I think that's why I think they killed Omid he was generally kinder, humorous and more liked then Christa. For some reason I cant see a bitter and cold version of Omid, he brings some much light that its hard to see him in the dark.

    Ikr

  • The character development isn't pointless. If they hadn't developed Omid nobody would care that he's dead. Killing off underdeveloped characters that nobody cares about would be pointless. Developing a character and then killing them is what gives the death meaning, makes us feel, and in the end makes for a better story. Dark tales such as TWD aren't for the faint of heart or for those that must have the hero win.

  • I agree. It's not like I ever cared for Omid or Christa that much (assuming the later is also dead) but it feels pointless to just kill everyone. What's with that? It felt like they wanted to start from scratch and just clean up the two loose ends from season 1 right off the bat. I understand it's a zombie apocalypse but if you're going to just kill everyone there's not much point in playing. Especially if it's as rushed and forced as that was; like I said it felt like they decided to start with a clean slate and take out what was left from season 1.

  • So it's bad that they delivered something unexpected?...

  • What point is there to kill any character? Would you rather not have the same feelings from Season 1 and have all the characters live?

  • Its the walking dead. It'll get worse. Just the way Robert Kirkman intends it to.

  • This is the walking dead examples like lee and now omid proves that just about anyone can die now am more worried about clem now more then ever :''(

  • While I don't agree with the idea that this is bad writing, I do agree with the "clean slate" notion. It is common form for video games that have sequels (but is found in other forms of media as well). Simply put, when you have a sequel, you don't want to have new players feel like they are missing something. If characters have too much of a connected backstory from the previous game, then new players may feel detached and will not develop the interest or attachment to characters needed for an emotional story. In other words, the new player will discover along with the protagonist they are controlling, and in a sense, feel connected as if the avatar is merely an extension of the player's will.

    Having Omid die, especially way he did, was cruel. It was unexpected and completely pointless. But that, of course, is the whole point. The Walking Dead, be it comic, TV show, or game, is a harsh, uncaring world that is always at the edge of disaster and despair, no matter how bright and care-free things feel at the moment. Omid's death introduces new players to this reality, and reminds returning players to this unrelenting fact by slapping them in the face.

    I agree. It's not like I ever cared for Omid or Christa that much (assuming the later is also dead) but it feels pointless to just

  • I'm guessing Telltale just wanted to open the second season on a nasty note. If that's what they wanted to do, it's their right, but...yeah, seeing a familiar character get slaughtered for the sake of shock value is always highly suspect. At this rate, I'm almost positive Kenny will show up as a drooling paedophile hermit with a basement packed with naked, starving children in a later episode.

    So what's going to happen in the next episode? Frogs? Boils? Locusts?

    This is exactly why Kirkman is an awful writer. Even Shakespeare knew he had to add some levity and comic relief in his tragedies.

    Same shit.

    R.I.P in peace, that one black guy that gets executed by the governor (I believe that to be spoiler free enough).

    The only death that was kind of unnecesary in the comic book was Glenn's.
