* Anyone bothered\suprised that Clementine doesn't seem to miss her parents that much? I know she talks about them a lot in the first season, but she was still hoping they were alive at that point. She only talks and remembers Lee, almost like her parents never existed. I don't doubt Lee was a big influence on her, but still. I'd understand if they were potrayed as neglectful or abusive, but no, they're shown to be nothing but kind and caring. It always came off to me as weird, that she just got over them like it was nothing.

*** [[spoiler: It’s equally possible that the apparent signs of her turning could’ve just been due to the blood loss from her open wound rather than her actually turning. And although I might be wrong about infections “pooling out”, the blood she was losing from her open wound would’ve slowed the infection process down to some degree, and AJ cauterizing the wound would’ve gotten rid of it completely. The only reason Lee died is because he had been unconscious for hours (which could be enough time for the infection to spread so that blood loss wouldn’t change his fate), while Clem at max had her leg hacked off after 30 minutes. Even if Lee bled out more, there was still less time for the infection to spread in Clem’s case, and I don’t see how her being bitten in an open wound would speed it up faster.]]

**** [[spoiler: Clem got bitten by a walker in the leg cut up by an axe. Lee got bit on the hand, which was fine earlier. Infections spread a lot faster for the former than the latter. Clem showed all the signs of "turning" in a shorter time frame because of this, so by all rights, she shouldn't have survived such. Infections don't just "pool out" (at least not enough for someone to save the infected person), otherwise Lee would have survived too (since he clearly bled out a lot more). Lee had more time, but Clem had way less time due to a wound bitten, and she already proved that by the signs given when she sat down in the barn, that it was too late for her. Telltale just gave the option to save her because it was the only choice that mattered for fans, in the end... especially since all other moments before then didn't make a difference in the overall story.]]

* How come that Jesus lashes out on Javi when you bash Badger to death, yet if you let Conrad do it(that's if you let him live at that point), you don't get called out for it?


*** [[spoiler: It's possible that the amputation resulted in a good deal of the infection flowing out of her body as she lost blood before AJ cauterized it.]]

*** [[spoiler: It's possible that the amputation resulted in a good deal of the infection flowing out of her body as she lost blood before AJ cauterized it. Plus, Clem didn't look nearly as bad as Lee did when he was turning, and Minerva's attack takes place in early dawn and Clem has her leg amputated by sunrise. That's much less time than Lee took before he could potentially get his arm cut off.]]

Added DiffLines:

*** [[spoiler: Except, she was clearly showing signs of paleness and weakness when she was struggling to stand up, and it was not because of her bad leg (because she already showed she could limp around prior to entering the shed with AJ), but because she was bitten in a badly open wound, so the infection spread faster. She experienced the same symptoms as Lee did in the same situation (pale skin, too weak to move, yellow-shot eyes), and yet all it took was an amputation, and she just simply lived. No, I'm pretty certain that the ending where she does die is the real canon, it's just that obviously fans would be pissed if they couldn't at least been allowed the option to save her, logical consistency be damned... and it's the one time Telltale made choice matter before getting shut down after Episode 2.]]

Added DiffLines:

** [[spoiler: At that point the Delta probably cared less about preserving Louis' life and more about striking fear into Aasim, and Omar, precisely so they'd be to afraid to resist.]]

Added DiffLines:

** [[spoiler: Her complexion can be tossed up to physical exhaustion. And it doesn't actually appear that she was infected for that long prior to the amputation. If you look closely in the scene at the bridge, you can see the sun is beginning to rise in the distance, and her leg is amputated when it's still clearly early morning. It was probably less than an hour between her being bit and her leg being amputated. As for Sarita, it wasn't the bite that actually killed her. If Clem severs her hand, Sarita screams and draws several walkers to her and she is promptly devoured. Finally, we don't actually see AJ amputate Clem's leg, it's possible that with the swing we saw, he originally DID intend to kill her, but changed his mind mid swing and missed. Then off screen he used something (probably the straw) to clean the ax and THEN he cuts her leg off. The reason this wasn't put on screen would probably be because it would would ruin the scene's dramatic tension.]]


* How did Clem survive? It's obvious the infection's spread given her pallid complexion; and she'd her leg was infected for a fair amount of time before it was amputated -- by an axe covered in walker gore, no less. Lee waited too long before getting his arm amputated, but Sarita had her infected limb lopped off right away -- depending on player choice -- and she still died.

**It is finally revealed during the flashback to when Clem rescued AJ from the ranch. [[spoiler: Richmond in fact did become a war zone, and Clem decided against going there for AJ's safety]]

* Um, Clem, why did you just [[spoiler: shoot an innocent woman to save AJ back at the ranch?]]



to:

* If the Delta are planning on turning the Ericson kids into ChildSoldiers, what's the point of [[spoiler:grotesquely maiming them? Wounds can easily get infected in times like these, not to mention it would only make the kids more scared of/pissed off at them. Plus, in the case of Louis being kidnapped, he could have very easily bled out or choked on his own blood when his tongue was cut out. If the Delta wants to use him, why take the risk?]]
