Too Much Salt Will Kill You

Complete chapter 5 of episode 2.   

You awake in a meat locker with Clementine, Kenny, Larry and Lilly with Larry being his usual charming self. Make sure to go through the dialog with Clementine and chat with the others especially Larry for some interesting little dialog. 

Proceed to examine the air condition vent or in some people's case you will be thrown into a cutscene with Larry having a heart attack. You have two big options and the usual Lee silent treatment to choose from: Try to revive Larry, side with Kenny and help to kill him or wait for the timer to expire. 

Helping Lilly
You take over the CPR on Larry by hovering your cursor over Larry's chest. Kenny doesn't waste much time and drops a salt lick onto Larry's head crushing it. A little Walking Dead hype is that if you are to get to four compressions Larry's mouth moves before Kenny crushes him. All of my playthroughs I have never seen the mouth but others swear by it. 

Helping Kenny
Helping Kenny will result in being the guy who holds Lilly back while Kenny searches for something to end Larry with. It is a small little event in which you must restrain Lilly by button mashing. Lilly breaks free and you must restrain her again. Kenny will wait until you pull her all the way out of the way until he drops the salt lick on Larry.

Doing Nothing
Kenny will insult Lee and call him useless as he pushes him out of the way. You will get a ground view of Larry's death. Note that this decision counts as if you were to side against Kenny while Lilly won't hold this against you as you didn't try to kill Larry.

Larry cannot be saved.

After the whole episode you need to find a way out. Examine the air conditioner again, with Lee saying someone could sneak through it if he had a coin to take it off the wall. Guess who has the coin? Larry.

Talk to Lilly and ask for permission to search through Larry's pockets. You will begin searching the three available pockets. The one on the right will have Larry's wedding right, the back pocket will have his wallet, and the one on the left side of the screen will be the one full of coins.

Return to the air conditioner and use the coins on the two screws. After Lee takes it off the wall Clem volunteers to go through and manages to make it to the other side. 

We'll see you on the run in Chapter 6.

I am siding with Lily from now, Kenny being a dick after killing him when I tried the save and he didn't save me from Danny.

Nice name for the achivement lol

This is one of those decisions that shows the humanity of this game -- you can actually believe this could/would happen. Much better then many video games with laughable dialogue/drama.

It is true, Larry's lips moved on mine too, then boom, Kenny caved his head into liquid.

Just goes to show... Too much salt will make you old and cranky thus contributing heavily to your death.

Of course Larry's mouth moves some after every compression, but I definitely saw him open and close it again as well after the fourth, right before the salt lick crashed down. Guess he really wasn't dead yet...

I saw his mouth move right after the 4th compression, just before SPLAT!
