Telltale’s Walking Dead has always been Clementine’s story. From the moment she appears in the first episode of the first season, the player may be controlling Lee but Clem is the character that they’re guiding and constructing. I’ve mostly enjoyed the second season, even when the pacing has been a little too Romero-zombie, and I’m looking forward to the joyous showtune that will mark the final episode. Except…the trailer below, which recaps season one and two with spoilers aplenty, suggests things might not turn out particularly well for Clem and the gang no matter what her choices have been. Gulp.
The ending is the beginning and I’d be lying if I said I didn’t well up a little there. Every moment of hope shatters like a zombie’s brain-box. I like to think my Clem is brave and selfless, but that’s not true. Brave she may be but she’s a tough little survivalist as well.
Final episode is out on the 26th, four days from now. I am bracing myself in anticipation.
