• Larry was alive and his heart was still pumping blood around his body but that doesn't mean he would survive. Only 5-10% of resurrection attempts with CPR work without use of medical equipment, Larry's heart attack was fatal which means his chances were probably in the 5% area. If he died which inevitably he would 4 people would of died. There was no chance you could take a man that size on in such an enclosed space! There were only two able combatants considering Clem was just a child and Lilly would probably still be in shock to do anything. The risk of him coming back 90-95% was just to high to take. If you wanna try save him be my guest but it is illogical and insane to even try.

    • The fact that Larry starts to breathe again if you try to resuscitate him shows that it is not 'illogical and insane' to try.

      You may say it was hopeful, but so fucking what? If Larry did turn into a zombie, you would be able to tell before he got up and started rampaging.

      Kenny should have held the block over his head, and if he started to turn into a zombie then he should drop it.

      • Fine by me, I applaud your attempts to save him and I agree the decision was a little hasty but It was going to happen sooner or later in my eyes.

        • "Kenny was surrounded in by sounds by walkers, Its illogical and insane to think he survived"
          See I did what you did! :D

          • Fair play, I believe that Kenny could of gotten away in the alley scene due to the windows all over it, smashing one and jumping through it could of been easy. Anyway I respect your opinion on the matter.

            • Ah but you think he died in the Christa version?

              Interesting, I haven't met a Kenny fan yet who thinks that he's alive in some playthroughs and not in others.

              I suppose the fact that you basically hear him die in the Christa version shows that you may well be right.

              • Well I agree there may be SOME chance he survived in the alley version, I doubt there is any chance in the Christa version at all. It was pretty damn fucking dark in there and too me it sounds like he just got devoured hence his instant silence on the matter.

              • I'm not a Kenny fan or Lilly fan and I like both characters. I just so happened to think that killing Larry was the right thing to do and ended up being the guys friend. I'm not saying he survived in either outcome however I think that in the alley scene considering there were plenty of windows in it he could smash/open and climb through I see that as a means for escape. However in the Christa version the room is pitch black and you can't see anything thing so I can't really see any escape routs.

              • No problem, some people can be cooperative and accept the fact that he might of died.

                • No one isdenying he could've. Just that it Kenny didn't need to do that if Lee was willing to risk himself. Kenny could've been there with the salt lick ready

    • There was no chance you could take a man that size on in such an enclosed space!

      Well, true, but I don't think he would just jump right back to his feet immediately after the reanimation, so others would still have time to smash his head. Lily could be saved from that trauma and probably wouldn't go through the mental breakdown that eventually caused her to murder Carley/Doug. Kenny had a point there, but still he had no right to do what he did. Just my thoughts.

    Larry was alive, making Kenny no better than Lilly.

    • Lilly did what she did out of circumstantial emotion (exactly like how Lee killed the adulterer).

      Kenny planned to kill Larry.

      • The argument could maybe be made that Carley's death was due to a spontaneous surge of emotion (although Lilly was gunning (no pun intended) for her pretty hard for a few minutes before that and even justified her actions as "I was just trying to protect us"). But she planned to murder Ben in cold blood in the Doug scenario just as much as Kenny planned to kill Larry. Only Larry had a 5-10% chance of being revived by active intervention and posed a direct, immediate threat to everyone in the group whereas Ben was alive and posed no immediate threat to anyone.

        • That is true, she did plan to kill Ben.

          Although Ben was responsible, and killing him would have saved the deaths of other.....

          doesn't matter I suppose at the end of the day. Good point.

          However I still feel that Lilly's is more based on emotion. I don't believe the Lilly we meet in episode 1 would do a thing like that, and when she lost her only other family member she snapped.

          If Kenny's wife and Kid had died then I would have understood his choice more.

          • Kenny knew that his family were in the clutches of people who apparently had no qualms about chopping off a man's legs and feeding it to his friends while he slowly bled to death. And he knew that his only chance to save them was to get out of the meat locker alive. So...you can see how he might have been a tad panicky and rash when he found out that he might be trapped in a room with a 300 lbs walker.

      • Yes, because he thought he was gonna turn!

        But at the end of the day, they both killed someone.

        I'm team Lilly too, of course.

  • Yeah. I noticed his mouth twitching..lol

  • This might come as a shock, but walkers - believe it or not - have to move their mouths to bite someone. It's equally possible that Larry was beginning to reanimate, and would have bitten Lee or Lilly. Does this prove that he was dead at the time? About as much as it proves he was alive (Which is not at all, in case you're wondering).

    • He didn't look anything like a walker when his mouth moved. Unlike David, who turned in a similar amount of time as Kenny expected Larry to turn.

  • For an alternative explanation for the mouth movement, look up "agonal gasps."

  • You actually like Larry?

    • He was part of the group so I decided it was us and them. Larry wanted to tear the cannibals apart so why not let him? Big strong guy on our side even if he's an asshole. If people helped Kenny kill him because he could be a walker alright, it seems many did it as cold blooded murder just because they dislike him though

    • I did. I thought Larry was a well done character. He kept things interesting and he had a different persona then everyone else in the group. I didn't see him as a bad guy like most did, he was trying to take care of his daughter and I can't fault him on that. Plus his voice actor did an amazing job, portraying Larry's anger without going too far with it. Larry hand's down was my favorite season 1 character.

    • I hated Larry, I just don't want people to die needlessly.

      Plus, I liked Lilly, and she loved Larry.

  • It didnt matter to me if Larry was alive or not.. that was the first chance I got and I helped Kenny kill Larry.
    Lee had to go through killing his zombie brother for the keys, to get the med's to save Larry, and he punched Lee leaving him for the walkers.
    he's an obvious threat, has to go.. first chance!

    • Idk. Murder the dad protecting his daughter and destroying the group in the process sounds meh to me

      • I understand he was protecting his daughter.. but realize we're playing Lee, so in a sence, Larry tried to kill you. Was Larry who first tried to murder you. Would you forgive that and allow him a second chance to do it? Seem's to me, It would be self defence. You just risked your life, to save his, then he tries to kill you. Arent you trying to protect someone too? How are you going to protect Clem if your dead?

        • He never gave any implications that he'd try it again. Especially with Kenny, Mark and Doug watching (All likely to be on Lee's side, Kenny especially after Ep1). If Mark tells Larry that Lee said he was only cranky because he was protecting Lilly, Larry is instantly defensive then softens

          • your right, he didnt imply he would try again and Mark, Doug and Kenny would have Lee's back. No arguement there. We just have a difference of opinion on what it would take to survive. You choose to be willing to forgive someone who tried to murder you, I would not!

            • He just didn't seem capable of murder without reason. Punching Lee out and leaving him is horrible. He doesn't seem to go on raids though. Trying anything at the Motor Inn would be suicidal for him and I doubt he'd actively kill someone. I share your opinion somewhat, I'd never forgive him and I'd dislike him. Keep my distance

    • Remind me to never piss you off. I just did it because I didn't want a bulldozer sized zombie ripping me in half.

  • This was the point of a lot of old threads but from what I gathered, it only happens if you reach a certain amount of clicks and it's left ambigious if he's turning or actually reviving, although considering how cpr works, I think people said it was more likely to be the former than the latter. I could be mistaken, though.

    Did anyone else get a somewhat amusing moment where the click occures just as Kenny drops the salt lick and Lee counts after Larry's head is crushed?

  • kenny is a killer, he made clem cry after that bloodshed kill
