Luke's death was particularly interesting, you need to be careful of getting too much on-screen time in this game. I also wondered if his death was avoidable, I generally avoid replays of the Telltale games to avoid the magic being stripped away but here I wondered how much choice I really had.

I thought it made sense for Clem to blame herself for ignoring Luke's warning: bring on the guilt.

After playing through Season 2 I feel that Lee probably should have taught Clem that people are shits and none of them are to be trusted.

But as Kenny points out it is only because Lee risked everyone to follow her that Clementine is still alive.

Acute observation from Bonnie: "What do you want to do?"

The final dilemma (no spoilers as yet) was not as emotional as the last season climax (which had me near tears). It was horrible from an empathic point of view but from a game point of view Kenny hasn't been really that nuanced in this season.

It was telling that the emotional weight of this episode came in a flashback/dream sequence where Clem and Lee were together.

It was interesting to play the other side of the conversation but I wonder if it didn't take away the agency of the people who perceived Lee differently.
