Finished the Second Season tonight. Was not impressed and was really disappointed. The first season felt very fleshed out and a complete story, and at the same time building up Clem's story. This season just felt like built up, and not much else.
Has anybody else finished it? Wanna hear you're thoughts.
I know he was pretty much a time bomb by the end of the season 2, but I didn't want to give up on him. Plus I didn't like Jane or Arvo so I didn't care that Kenny beat him up.
I felt like if someone wasn't gonna give up on me, it would have been Kenny, I ain't doin' him dirty like that.
I agree with you there, but I sense Jane in the same light. There were a lot of moments where you can bond with her and she did come back to help Clem. Jane does still have her issues, but I felt Kenny was a high strung ticking bomb, and when he got an idea in his head, he couldn't be persuaded to change his mind (except when Lee had to either knock some sense into him or allow himself to be Kenny's punching bag).
The thing that makes this game so great that most of the characters are neither white or black, but linger in the grey area. It comes down to your own perception on what you deem right or wrong.

What are your thought process that prevented you from saving Jane, before shooting Kenny? I'm interested. Did you think Jane deserved to die as well, or wanted to see how their fight would have ended without interfering?
I finally played through this. I'm glad I stopped watching the show and its dull and poorly written characters. "The Walking Dead" to me is this video game series. It's Clementine, Lee, Kenny and everyone else.
This season was less about developing the side characters and all about developing Clementine and how she will live in this world. At times, I actually dreaded playing it knowing that there would be some devastating choices. I can't remember the last time I felt as angry playing a game as when Carver killed Walter in the ski lodge.
Given how huge the difference in available ending is, I assume that Clementine will not be the main character of season 3. I don't see how that's possible. I worry that a new group of characters won't be as compelling but I guess you just have to trust the writers on this one. They are 2/2 so far.
Also, fuck Arvo. I hope that kid got eaten slowly.
