The Walking Dead Season 2: Episode 2 ‘A House Divided’ Preview

wsp4

A House Divided is the second episode of Telltale Games’ The Walking Dead Season 2 and it’s expected to be released on February. At the end of episode one, All That Remains, a small trailer is shown predicting some of the upcoming events. As the title expresses itself, the cabin group will be divided about something and in my opinion, they’ll have different positions about leaving or staying in the cabin. The danger is imminent; however the source reasons remain unknown. Check the mini trailer here if you haven’t finished Season one yet:

Carver: The New Antagonist?

The reason for this disagreement is simple – Clementine, Pete and Nick have found a dead group at the river shores, they found bullet holes all over the corpses and they seem to know who’s behind the massacre. The bandit leader who used to mentor the cabin group, Carver, seems to be looking for them. And honestly, I don’t think they want to be found. For some reason the bandit wants them dead, but why? Is it because they ran away or could it be because the cabin group knows too much about his criminal activities? There’s surely a huge story around this matter and I think that Carver is some kind of psychopath killer, unless the cabin group is wrong about the killing and they’re definitely not what they appear to be so far.

Clementine opens the cabin’s door and she meets an unknown man who’s looking for the group.

The Runaway: Towards the Mountains

Clementine appears in the trailer revealing that an unknown man came looking for them, the group immediately knows who it was and they start making plans. The only thing I don’t understand is why Carven didn’t kill them if he has indeed found their location already. Perhaps he enjoys chasing the prey? The result of that discussion seems clear when the group is travelling towards the nearby mountains. But what or who’s there in the mountains? Is it Carver and his bandit group? Or is it another group of people able to offer protection against the possible antagonist? What’s known for now is that there’s actually a group of people in the mountains and they’re all well-armed. However, there’s no sign of Carver. It would be a bit ridiculous to walk into the enemy’s nest, to say the least, unless, of course, they’re naïve enough to think that words actually work in an apocalyptic world gone mad.

The group walks towards the mountains and in the meanwhile Rebecca says she can’t go on.

The Return of the Survivor

As the cabin group reaches the mountains, there’s a clear sign of an old character, someone Clementine used to know and believed to be dead. Could it be Christa? Or is it Lilly, who perhaps found shelter amongst this new group? The third option is Kenny - could he still be alive after all the events of Season one? Honestly, I think the most credible return is Lilly’s, she had the chance to escape in a RV during episode 3 and she could perfectly be alive. On the other hand, Kenny and Christa have way more chances to be dead than alive but Telltale has a great sense of humor, anything is possible.

Clementine is surprised to see someone she thoguht to be dead.

The Mountains: New Home or Temporary Shelter?

There are so many questions and one of them is exactly the meaning of this mountain group to Clementine and her people. Why would they go there in the first place? Perhaps, one member knew about this group or did they find each other by chance? Nevertheless, the cabin people are officially runaways and they need protection against Carven, so maybe this will be their new home until something drastic happens, until Carven finds them again. And that’s probably the ending for this next episode. Carven has found them once, he can find them again and I’m sure he won’t be as benevolent as the first time. As for Clementine, she’ll most likely lose a bunch of friends again – it’s the natural course of things in the Walking Dead world.

  1. Its def not Christa as you see her laying dead by the river in episode 1 of season 2….

  2. I dont think the dead lady is Chrysa or Clementine would had a more bigger response and she wouldnt ask the dying man about her.

  3. It might be the fool who fought her in Espiode one.

  4. Who the hell is “Carven”….

  5. I think she meant Lily when she’s surprised

  6. I wander who it is

  7. I would be so happy if it’s Kenny!
    He would give it all to protect Lees’ little girl. =) =)

  8. It’s Kenny. Definitely.

  9. The man is Lee. In ep.1 of s.2 it is clearly said that a cousin of someone of the characters had survived a bite by cutting his arm.

  10. I think it could be: Kenny,Lilly or Molly: Maybe Christa and Omid told her that Kenny died. But the most i think it’s Lilly. I don’t think that Clem could be that suprised seeing Christa. And I know you all hope that’s Lee. But he couldn’t survive. You know that he can be bitten 2 times more when makes his way to The Marsh House? If you won’t attack: The first girl, she will bite him on the shoulder. And if you won’t kill the guy in the Brown shirt he will bite him too. Anyway. Im sorry but he didn’t survive bitten or not…

  11. I just want it to be Lee and we change back to being able to play as Lee and then as clementine for certain tasks! I want Lee back. I need Lee back, even if you had her shoot him it didn’t show it she may have shot off to the side. He might have somehow made it. please!

    • Lee is not a real option. He died for many gamers, it has to be a character that is missing or didn’t officially die during season one.

  12. The person alive is….the girl who robbed her in the bathroom…who Christa shot in the stomach!

    If not, then the man she gave water too, or christa

  13. She doesn’t seem particularly happy to see whoever it is. So I don’t think it is Kenny or Christa. I’m going with Lilly, or could it be one of the brothers from the dairy? (didn’t one of them live?)

  14. What if Kenny is the cousin?

  15. I think It is Lilly because whether she steals R.V or lee leaves her she probably finds a new group. Possibly carvers group and says that clem is still alive and with the area of the dead people that was a sign that carvers coming for Clem to kill her because of what lee did

    • So that’s why Luke and his group are going to the mountains to get away from where carver and possibly Lilly are

  16. But look at the expression on Clem’s face. She isn’t really happy with it.

  17. The new “group” in this installment are the most horribly useless and passive aggressive people I’ve ever seen in any game.

    Fun game though!

  18. I hope it is Kenny..Couldn’t it be the Asian guy as well? Remember he drove off to find his friends in Season 1…

  19. It cannot be Lilly as in the 400 days DLC when playing as the black kid you see her corpse on the side on the road.

  20. you never know it could be sam’s family you really never see them and there was no body of them so it could possibly be sam’s family

  21. Toward the end where Clementine got suprisdd to see this person. One man in the group said ” whoa put the gun down MAN!” that rules out any female character. So it’s either omid,Kenny,Lee, it could not be the guy you had the option to give water too by the river as telltale clearly states it is a character from season 1.
