Welcome to the first post on “The Walking Blog”!
If you have either played The Walking Dead Season 1 and 2 or watched a YouTuber’s play through of it, you’ll know that the primary element of this series is a little girl named Clementine. She was not the protagonist of the first season; it was Lee:
But Lee’s goal (and ours) was to keep young Clementine safe in a world so damaged by the zombie apocalypse, and we did just that.
Clementine’s story was definitely a good one. She met a whole bunch of people who truly changed her life, some for the better and some … well, let’s not get into that.
The person who helped her along the way the most was definitely Lee. He taught her how to shoot a gun for the very first time; which is a mandatory skill to have in the apocalypse and he dedicated his life, his very last dying breath to keep her as safe as possible. Lee was her mentor, her father figured she looked up to and best of all, her friend.
But I believe that her story is now over.
It has been confirmed that Season 3 is in the process of being made as we speak; or as I type and as you read. But I, personally believe, that the protagonist for this season, will not be Clementine and for the following reasons:
- At the end of Season 2, Clementine’s story branched off into too many possibilities
- It would be extremely difficult for Telltale to pick up where they left off because the choices lead off into completely different plots/scenarios and involve different characters and settings
(Yes, I made this chart)
- No, we don’t know what’s going to remain of Clementine’s time, here in The Walking Dead world but I believe it best to leave her story where it is with the main headline being: cliff-hanger
While I would love to be there with Clementine until the true end of her journey, it’d be difficult and truthfully, unnecessary for Telltale games to do so.
