because i thought that if i had let kenny kill someone in an angry rage, it might as well be like letting someone that you love turn into a walker and only get more people killed.
*spoilers* no going back, the walking dead game: season 2 episode 5, in retrospect.
in retrospect… although jane’s plan was… pretty messed up, throughout the whole episode… hell, throughout the ENTIRE season since meeting up with kenny, i could tell that he was spiraling down someplace that he couldnt save even himself from no matter how hard i’d push my clem to try. i was already aware of the point jane was trying to make even a few episodes back, and yes although i know kenny cared deeply for clem and the baby…
my clem isnt someone that would just sit there and do nothing while someone they love turns into a monster. case in which was what was happening to kenny. i couldnt bear that, and even if i had let him kill jane… thats just more blood on his hand that he simply does not need. that would further twist and change him, more things that he’d have to carry and weigh HIM down even more. it was pretty sad, and pretty tough doing that to ken… and it was even more rough when he had told me that i had done the right thing, as he laid there dying while i comforted him about him seeing his family soon.
was it necessary for jane to have provoked kenny that far into that situation? of course not, there definitely could’ve been different ways that it could’ve played out. but as clem, you have to deal with what the cards have been dealt with. for some reason i found some empathy for the logic she had in doing what she had done, which is the reason why i chose to forgive her.
janes actions for exposing the truth wasnt the cleanest, but sometimes thats the only way for some people to. and i respect her in that sense, because thats something that i would find myself doing, despite if the entire world would hate me for it.
but man… what a way to end the season, jeez… what. a. way. indeed.
if you guys happen to have any thoughts, would like to bash on my personal opinions, or just… talk about this season, feel free to respond or write back!
