I agree with you to a certain point. They do a good job of leaving us with lots to contemplate for the coming episodes.
But at the same time, doesn't anyone else find it weird that the game seems to be driven so hard on how your choices effect the outcome, but after this episode it seems all previous choices don't matter at all?
I mean now it doesn't matter if you picked Doug or Carley in the first episode, because no matter what, that character gets offed in this one. And also it doesnt matter if you side with Lilly or Kenny because now Lilly's gone (either you leave her on the road or she takes the RV), and since Kenny lost his entire family, he doesn't even care anymore. It seems to me we essentially all have the same game going into episode 4.
Just some thoughts.
