Nick or Pete?



  • Lee's cut-off-arm wasn't stitched up, so it's likely that he died of blood loss. If his arm isn't cut off, he dies of the infection. Pete might still live if they stitch up or cauterise his wound.

  • I chose Pete simply because he needed my help more. Pete was injured and out of ammunition, Nick still had bullets and appeared to be fine. I actually think that Nick is a more likable character than Pete, but in the moment I figured Nick could take care of himself while I try to prevent Pete from getting eaten.

  • I choose Pete perhaps partially due to nick having bullets and better chance and blah blah.

    But actually, another reason is when I looked at Pete's leg. At the time I felt like it looked less like a bite and more like....a scratch from walker hands or something. I dunno...

    Ok, so from the scene shown in the next episode preview, he is indeed 100% bitten. But at the time I wasn't sure. Hopefully the amputation is on time, and hopefully it allows Pete to live long enough until atleast episode 3 or 4.(Considering sadly telltale have to eventually kill killable-by-choice characters at some point if they weren't killed already by the choices. Ya know, like carley/douge, and ben)

  • Yeah I just went back and replayed season 1, and I didn't understand why she didn't kick him either because you would of saved both of them if she would of had the sense to kick the zombie in the spur of the moment. (I saved Carley though because you always help the women before the man, or so from what I've been taught).

  • Hopefully he survives next episode, otherwise my choice was for nothing.

  • Yeah, if you save Pete, you'll see Nick run off into the woods before you and Pete get the hell outta dodge. So he's probably alive... probably.

  • Nick, I took a look at Pete's leg and thought nope. Although amputation was an option from past experiences I wasn't to sure about that working. I never thought about that in the moment anyway and just went the guy who wasn't bit. I liked both Nick and Pete and I don't really judge Nick for what he did due to what he had been through, at least he had the balls to come and apologies unlike most of the group. Yes I accepted it and I think that he is a nicer guy if we get to know him better, he was just looking out for those he cared about and his mothers dead obviously hardened him.

  • My Top 3 Suggsetions are : Christa , Lilly , Kenny ... I Think That choosing kenny is a dumb idea .. but it may be him :/

  • My first Initial reaction was Kenny when I heard that though lol

  • Nick, because Pete was already bit, so I knew he was probably not going to make it. Also Nick looks like Kenny, who is my favorite character

  • Personally, I didn't want anything horrible to happen to Nick, and felt a connection with him... buuuut I thought it would be better to comfort poor Pete in his dying moments, maybe even get to amputate and let him live. Also, Pete seemed a bit like a new Lee, even before getting bitten.

  • I chose Pete for a lot of reasons stated above (wounded, no ammo, he's a cool dude) but the final thought I had that made me go with him was how he treated Clem when he and Luke found her. I thought "Well, when I was bitten Pete had my back despite everyone else freaking out. What kind of person would I be if I abandoned him when HE got bitten?" So the biggest reason, I suppose, is because he did the same for me. If he dies or not, well, I just felt I owed it to him.

  • Couldn't have put it better myself. Besides, what if TT wanted you to pick Nick on purpose? Maybe saving Pete in the long run might prove more important than Nick? I dunno.... We'll just have to wait and see i suppose.

  • Read the original post, please.

  • I chose Nick...simply because the cabin was on that side of the river. I did regret my choice in leaving Pete behind because he was kind to me, but in the end I valued Clem's survival (even though I knew she wouldn't die :P) over Pete's.

  • Nick looks like he's getting sh*t-faced drunk in the next episode, so is it safe to assume we can't rely on him now? If he keeps his constant incompetence up, I doubt he'll make it through the next episode.

  • Nick because he is Rebeca's baby daddy

  • I saved Pete as well, and I also felt like I owed him for when he gave me the benefit of the doubt.

  • He told Nick though. They walked ahead is all

  • I don't know. Nick could run but it doesn't mean he'll show up at the cabin. Pete though how are we going to help him back to the cabin with one leg?

  • Isn't it because Lee took so long before cutting his arm?

  • Most people here didn't actually answer the question. Oh well...

    I just hope NIck made it back to the cabin. Otherwise, he:

    1. may show up with a walker bite.
    2. will be dead/seen eaten alive by walkers.
    3. captured by one of the people responsible for the carnage at the river

    As for the debate on who to save, I initially saved Nick because Pete was already bitten and I have a strong feeling that he won't survive any amputation (if saved) due to time constraints. In the TV Series and Comics, Herschel and Dale, respectively, have their legs amputated just minutes after being bitten. However, Pete's situation is quite the same as Lee's because it took them a couple more minutes before having a chance to cut off their legs.

    Tip: Try doing 2 different playthroughs

  • Agreed. Everyone is assuming because Nick runs he's at thecabin. For all we know thisCOULD be a Doug or Carley choice even if it looks like Nick always runs. Instead of Nick being killed in front of us, it could be either ambiguous or hes killed offscreen or afterward or captured and Pete does survive after all

  • To me it wasn't a "who are you gonna save situation" it was who was gonna protect cleam and who I trusted. I chose the guy who wasn't bitten and had ammo. I was an unarmed little girl at the time I thought there was no way I could help Pete.

  • I'm wondering if its turns into the opposite of epiosde 1.

    Right now Pete and Nick live if you pick Pete and only Nick if you pick Nick however maybe next episode Pete dies from blood loss after amputation and you find walker Nick on the way back. If you choose Nick you both make it back That would be a nice twist and a split in the story

  • Nick reminded me of Kenny, and Kenny was my favorite character so...obvious choice for me.

  • I saved nick and im wondering what happends to them both in episode 2 and do u think they will both die by the end of the season

  • I think almost all the cabin survivors will be dead before the end of the season, almost a guarantee.

    I saved Pete.

    He gave Clem a chance when she was bitten.
    I felt that I owed him a chance too, even if his bite is a confirmed walker's.
    He seemed to know about the whole amputation thing too, and seems to have no issue with it. Let him have a chance at trying to make it.

    Nick was on the river side of the house , too. He could have just ran back there on his own.

  • Honestly I would be awesome if Nick actually survives if you save Pete. TT could play it on a very smart way:Pete is bitten - you automatically assume he is going to die,plus he is out of ammo.It would be a natural choice to save Nick.And that's what most people did.However,if you save Pete -- Nick runs off,comes back the next episode,and Pete survives by cutting his foot off.

  • It would be a nice change to have someone survive an amputation like Herschel. Badass Pete ftw

  • I'll say that Carley was so at the heat of the moment, and immediately thought "my gun" that she didn't think to just stomp the zombie. Also I'm gonna say that kicking a zombie off your feet is probably a lot harder to do than you might think.

  • I think you should cut the limb with in minutes that to work, or am i wrong? Still i picked Pete too.

  • Yes, but that never gonna happen, TTGs games have brilliant story but choises are allway pretty vain, but that would be awesome to see...

  • Clementine does not need a protection no more, she the badaas boss.

  • I saved Nick the first time because I saw him get bit, so I figured he was dead anyways.. But the second time I played the episode I saved Pete. I think Pete will end up dying pretty soon anyways. Sort of just like when I saved Ben from falling in the clock tower, but later he fell to his death on a spike. sort of like that haha

  • Telltale said in an interview (I'll try and find it) that this is a HUGE choice that affects the rest of the season. I think Pete survives if you save him and maybe Nick lives no matter what. However maybe whether Pete's alive or dead will affect Nick for the rest of the season and maybe he's less useful and more suicidal if you lose Pete. Could be interesting, because of that interview I'm assuming Pete lives if you save him and his fate will influence future events.

  • They said that this would be a huge choice that affects the rest of the season. I think choosing Pete will save everyone and is the best outcome despite being the riskier deal. In contrast saving Nick will not only lose Pete, but send Nick on a downward spiral because of his anger at Clementine and himself for not being able to save his uncle, and regret that the last thing he said to him was call him an asshole.

    I like how much better they did this choice than last season, like it was completely split down the middle with a small lean towards Pete. I guarantee that if Pete did not get bitten (Maybe it really was a scratch and the teaser is lying about cutting his leg off) that the choice would be 100% towards Pete.
