Nearly at our final destination, our podcasters try to figure out how each of us has arrived over the course of a game that challenges gamers constantly with decisions great and small.

With the final episode of The Walking Dead slated to appear this week, it seemed a good time to discuss the penultimate episode in preparation for that impending release.


Despite all of us ending up in Savannah in episode four, this episode Nick, Jorge, and I discover that each of our versions of the game’s protagonist Lee are really in very different places from our own perspectives.  A lot of decisions have defined this character and his relationship to the group in very different ways.  So, we consider how we each have arrived via different character paths at this near final destination.
  
Of, course, spoilers abound.
