To people who didn't like the ending (SPOILERS)
First of all I wanna say I'm usually pretty skeptical and I'm not a mindless fan who defends the franchise no matter what, in fact I was on this forum, arguing a lot, and there were some episodes that I didn't like, I'm gonna copy paste a reply that I used in an another post because I wanna use that as the basis of my "thesis"
I personally liked the ending, I mean It's probably because I was so pissed when I thought Clem was dead, honestly,I feel like this would have been the cheap ending, the moment Clementine got bit I was like
"CUT OFF HER FRICKING LEG NOW"
I mean sure she may have passed out, but she could have given him instructions before doing so, hell in season one Clementine grabs lee and drags him safely into a garage, so I think AJ would have managed, especially since Clem doesn't seem that heavy.
Honestly I was salty the whole ending until I saw Clem, I actually cried, I almost never cry but I was so ecstatic to see her alive and felt like "yes they fricking cut her leg off jesus"
I'm guessing my emotions got over the logic side of me and I didn't try to figure out how Alvin managed to save Clem. But maybe the other people in the group arrived ? Or Alvin found a way to get rid of the walkers and drag Clementine all the way to school, I mean sure that seems impossible, but adrenaline can do wonders, and honestly, I wouldn't have that much trouble believing it.
And I agree that Clem looked sickly, but honestly she had her leg cut off, and probably suffered from blood loss, and like a certain person someone said in the forum, the amount of time it takes for someone to die from a bite varies from people to people, just like in real life, people don't die at the same time of the same disease, a body may resist better or worse to a disease, but yeah I get that they wanted to make us really emotional so the way this played out was kinda strange, but I think It can still be explained and It's not that far fetched.
I feel like people are never satisfied, if Clementine had died, people would have said it was cheap and too easy, and redundant, and they keep her alive and you are not happy ? I mean you are free to think whatever you want, and I'm sure most of the people are somewhat satisfied of this ending, but I mean I thought it was very good, not perfect, but in my game, Alvin wasn't ready to be left alone uneducated, he needed the wisdom of Clem, in my playthrough Louis died, but I'm not that mad, I mean the alternative is killing Tenn ? That seems kinda horrible, Alvin has been through so much already, he doesn't need to be tougher, I actually think he needs to be softer, learn how to live, not survive, he already knows that.
Although I do agree with what Poogers said to me, they could have made a lot more endings considering this is the end, but I'm guessing they wanted everyone to be satisfied and tried to make an ending that would appeal to more people.
I'm guessing what was weird was the barn scene, I didn't really understand everything, but I guess it left Alvin completely traumatized.
I feel like they should have played this scene at the very ending (when we knew Clem was alive) and maybe make it a little bit deeper, and explore it a little more, because there are a lot of things I didn't understand, like who fought ? Why did they fight ? Why was AJ in there ? I feel like they could have explored that a lot more.
All in all we are so used to shitty endings in TWD I feel like It's a nice change, and It's also hopeful, for me it feels like humanity maybe will finally be able to get back from It's feet, and maybe it might start anew in Ericson's Boarding School
GO ERICSON !
Although I actually am curious, I made this thread cause I want people to tell me why they didn't like this ending.
