Since Harp brought it up in the other thread about Telltale's Dark Age, I'm curious, who do you think had a decent chance of showing up in Season 4? I imagine at least a few characters from past seasons are gonna be in Season 4 no matter how little sense it makes because Telltale is gonna want to win the fans back over, plus, it's the final season, so they might not want to leave any loose threads hanging.
Honestly, I think there's a good chance that when they reveal that teaser at pax or wherever we're gonna have a last minute stinger where Nate shows up. Give him a cool one-liner and let the crowd lose their minds. It's a sure-fire way to win back some instant goodwill and hype.
I think Christa is the single most likely to return, with the Mike group close behind. With everyone else dead, Christa is Clem's only real connection in the world aside from AJ, but if she appears, there's not a chance that it'll be a happy reunion. She's either going to be part of some group fucking Clem over without Christa's knowledge, or she's gonna be Kenny style crazy out in the woods, with all of the people she ever loved dead, or maybe she'll be sick and dying. They're gonna make this season about Clem as basically an adult. She's no longer a helpless little girl. There's no room for a mother figure in Clem's final adventure.
And in that sense, I can almost see Lilly or Mike as more likely. She might need someone who once was family, but who hurt her bad. Someone who she can reconcile with, and come to terms with, without completely shutting out of her life.
Would she even recognize Clementine, or even remember her? It's been like years since the two even saw each other, and that was when Clementine was nine years old.
The only thing Lilly would probably be to recognize is her hat. Clem doesn't exactly look that recognizable with her new haircut.
That's more due to an art style change than Clem growing up imo. She looked really recognizable, yet still growing up in season 2. Plus not to mention the crazy trauma Lilly went through with Clem. Lilly will probably remember her.
Y'now, I'm someone who never liked Lilly, but I do agree that I think there's a lot of really cool ways you could go with bringing her back
Well my opinion is fairly famous. But I will admit she was a very good character, and I wouldn't mind her coming back. A lot can be done since she is the longest lasting survivor in the series beside Clem.
