After stewing on it a bit, I think I can finally write about my thoughts. Firstly, that flashback scene with Lee made me tear up like a little school girl. For a second there, just a second I really thought that all of season 1 & 2 was just a bad dream. They had me going for a bit, but I quickly realized they weren't going to pull some bullshit like that. It was still awesome seeing Lee again, I miss how great of a character he was, but I digress. Lets get to the meat of it. Luke! My main dog Luke! He... died in my game -- now I don't know if you can save him or not because I stand by every choice I make when I play The Walking Dead, I never go back and see the ''what if'' moments. Unfortunately I think I made the wrong choice, I opted to slowly crawl on the ice and try to grab his hand, and well... that failed miserably. I was heart broken, but even in his last minutes of life he had enough strength to save me one last time.
Gonna skip ahead here a bit because the most important stuff happens towards the end. Kenny, my dear pal Kenny. I stood up for him every chance I got, I stuck my neck out when nobody else would. I loved the guy, sure he was far from perfect, borderline psycho sometimes, but we've been through some shit together -- real shit. He was slowly but surely regaining his humanity -- mainly because of AJ and me; sadly in the end it wasn't enough. Now listen, I know what Jane did was wrong, fucked up even. But what was running through my mind at the time was that Kenny would've actually killed her and possibly me for trying to break it up. No matter how many times I tried to talk some sense into Kenny, it would only last a couple of minutes. So... so I shot him. I instantly burst into manly tears, there was no going back. He left me no choice, but at least his last few words made me feel more at ease with myself.
Now for the big reveal, the baby was alive. Here's where things get tricky. I was pissed at Jane no doubt, but in the end what was I gonna do? Tell her to fuck off and raise a newborn baby by myself in a post apocalyptic world? Clem is a bad ass, we all know this, but there's no way in hell a baby is going to raise a baby. At the end of the day Clem is still a child and she is going to need help, period. So I forgave Jane and moved along, not just for myself but for the child I risked my life for. Deep down inside I'll truly never trust her again, but for the time being she's all I got and we need to stick together to make sure we survive.
As for the 7 days later part, lets just say that family was sent home packing. I believe I made the right choice, and I stand by it. After what Bonnie and Mike did to us, I wasn't about to let that same shit happen again. You should've seen the smirk on my face when Clem says ''What makes you think I'm not dangerous as well?'' then pulls out the gun. We needed all the food we can get and I wasn't about to share it with strangers, especially when we have a newborn baby to look after. It wasn't easy, but I didn't choose to live in this dog eats dog world.
So yeah, this was another great season. I loved it, it wasn't as good as season 1 of course but I think it held up nicely. I'm interested to see where they take this, and hopefully the next time we see Clem she'll be all grown up. I'd say they should wait at least 2 years until they decide to do season 3. Give the series enough time to breath and marinate.
