...If it wasn't for the fact the Wyatt's status is pressumed death and Becca status is unknown (and she appears to be trapped in a city surrounded with walkers and possibly with both Silas and Lilly around.) Yeah that kinda overshadowed for me the EMULLY momment and the almost certain demise of both.
Me too, man. I'll be damned if I don't name my first child Annie if it's a girl. Always liked the name.
At any rate I guess I should get on to trivia, so here's a few examples:
Kiff was actually going to show up at the end of Season 1 in an aborted ending. After Vince's group dealt with Ivan, Kiff would appear in a car and say "So I guess you're the folks in charge of the 'Outpost', right?" I didn't go through with it because A) it was fucking stupid to introduce a character so late and B) I didn't think it was a satisfying ending.
As such, Kiff was the first member of the Gas Station group to be created. The next was Mitchell, whose design is an extremely loose representation of my own. Emily came next though I think her name was different for a while (can't remember what she was called exactly.) Sully came next and Fuad was last because they needed a leader.
Fuad's ethnicity was, I'm not gonna lie, decided so I had a more diverse representation of races. I think the same was true of Kiff's Scottish heritage. Maybe. Also I wanted to call someone Fuad.
I think there were originally two more members of the Gas Station group as well. I seem to remember there being someone younger than Mitchell at least. I'll have to go through my files.
Actually, I think Mitchell may have been the first member of the GSG to be created after that offhand comment about a self insert that died right after being introduced.
Going back through my files has uncovered something I forgot about. Something from a long time ago. We're talking something Pre-ITF but Walking Dead related that I gave up on but utilised some ideas for ITF later down the line.
This is exciting. I'll get back to you about it soon.
I can confirm that there was going to be two more members of the Gas Station Group; one was this guy:
(I found his unfinished design in a folder called Group Member 1) and another person whose identity I cannot remember (there was a folder called Group Member 2). I think the second person was going to be female, I can't remember.
Apparently Justin was going to be in Season 2 at some point. Either that or I was testing designs. I guess it would've made sense for him to be at Sanctum if he ditched Vince to find a settlement in 400 days.
Incredibly early Silas design:
So... Hector and Silas were one and the same at some point? I only knew this was Silas from the file name.
Incredibly early Sully design. This is pre-3ds max:
Sully originally had glasses and Fuad didn't. Sully already had a head accessory (his hat) so I moved it to Fuad instead.
Before I planned out Season two, Sully was going to die early on in a 'save X or Y' between himself and Mitchell. Sully would've yelled for Becca to save Mitchell and would've died after. Mitchell would've blamed Becca for Sully's death and would've hated her from then on.
Fuad and Kiff's times of death would've been switched. Kiff would've died in episode 2 (shot in the stomach) and Fuad would've been shot in the back by Silas.
I have a few aborted 3ds max designs such as a file called "Fucker With Hat" who would've been a Sanctum guard.
I feel like killing Wyatt would really open up some potential character development in a possible Season 3 for Annie in particular, along with Vince and Bonnie to a lesser extent. Maybe if I hadn't killed him things would've gotten stale.
Even in death Mitchell helped the group. Even though it's unlikely I'm totally saying that he was the one who bit Curtis.
