Javier and the others are faced with great sacrifices to salvage what remains.


Chapter 1: Sole Survivors[]

In a flashback, Javier, David, and Salvador are playing dominoes. David wins, and has Javier and Salvador pay him $10 each. When Javier picks up Salvador's wallet, he notices a folded piece of paper inside. He curiously takes it out and examines what is written on it. David snatches the paper to read himself, then they both confront Salvador on why he did not tell his family about him having cancer.

Salvador admits he didn't want to tell his family about his condition. David asks him about potential treatment, but he has already turned it down. Javier can team up with David on this, or admit that they have no claim on his life and that he is free to do anything he wants.

As David rushes to the other room in anger, Salvador tells Javier that they need to look out for each other and be brothers, and that legacy is everything someone leaves behind after he's dead. Javier can either promise that he will look out for him or refuse to make such a promise.

The game returns to the present, where Richmond is thrown into chaos due to a breach in their walls. Javier runs to the van and finds it empty and searches for Kate. He finds David and they both look for Kate. David sees a walker resembling Kate and approaches it. Overcome with shock after realizing it isn't Kate, David gets attacked by the walker. The real Kate comes and kills the walker.

Chapter 2: Promises and Lies[]

After Javi, David, and Kate find Clem and Gabe, they go into a nearby building for shelter. Inside, there are Richmond survivors. Kate expresses that she feels guilty for what happened to the people of Richmond since her van struck the wall and caused walkers to enter Richmond. They walk into a room and find Eleanor treating a patient named Fern. Depending on the player's choices, her husband Rufus will be there as well if you chose to spare him in "Ties That Bind - Part 1". Fern says she lost her daughter in all the chaos and that Rufus got bitten.

After Kate offers to help Fern, the latter points a gun at Javi, accusing him of being responsible for the chaos, whether you shot Joan or not. As Javier tries to convince Fern to put the gun down, Kate stands in front of the gun, taking the blame for the chaos and Fern's daughter's death. As Fern considers lowering the gun, David runs forward, takes the gun, breaks Fern's arm, shoots Rufus in the head if you had spared him previously and almost kills Fern before Gabe stops him. Everyone is shocked by this, and they start walking away from him. David admits he's alone on this and goes on the roof, angry.

Chapter 3: Family Values[]

Shortly after Javi finds David on the roof of the building standing on the ledge. Javier can either stand with him or just stay as he was. David tries to make him understand how he views the world. While sharing his ideology, Javier can either scold him for his actions or admit that he is only trying to do his best for the people he loves. David (and Javi if you chose to stand with him) get off the ledge.

Kate then runs in, others following shortly afterwards. Along with them is Tripp/Ava (depends on your choice in "Thicker Than Water"). Javier makes peace with the person you didn't choose to be spared. If you saved Tripp and killed Conrad in the tunnels, Tripp would mention that he would do the same thing if someone threatened his family.

Everyone decides to leave the building to retrieve a vehicle nearby. Along the way, they find a crashed helicopter and use its blades to get across a hole in the bridge. Unfortunately, Ava dies on the way to the helicopter or Tripp dies after Javi uses its blade, which breaks afterwards. After that, others find the vehicles in a crowd of walkers. Javi covers himself in walker guts to turn on a generator for a distraction. As they regroup in a garage, an argument ensues. David wants to take everyone and return to their old home, however, Kate wants to go back and help the people in Richmond. Gabe sides with David, and everyone else sides with Kate.

Kate flips off David and officially dumps him after she tells him that they are not his soldiers. Depending on your relationship with Kate, she can either proceed to invite you to come with her and kiss you or say that she can't believed she loved either of you. Either response enrages David to the point of him attacking Javier, regardless if you denied the relationship or not.

During the fight, Javier can either fight David, resulting in David overpowering him using a wrench or admit that he loves him no matter what, which even enrages him more. After fighting him or admitting your love three times, he begins choking Javier, threatening to kill him. Clementine either shoots David in the shoulder or holds him at gunpoint to defuse the situation, depending if you shot Kenny or looked away/did nothing in Season 2.

They retreat to the garage as more and more walkers are attracted to the noise during the fight. David, however, takes Gabriel and drives off. Javier is forced to make a decision - go after Gabriel and David or stay with Kate to try and save Richmond. Clementine, depending on your choices during her flashbacks throughout the season, can either go after Gabe, go with Kate, follow Javier's lead, or go wherever Javier doesn't.

Chapter 4: Dark Victory[]

The endings vary from here:

ENDING 1: Javi and Clem go after Gabe and David together.[]

Javi and Clem go on the motorcycle and eventually find their car, with both Gabe and David inside and alive. Javi tells Clem to kill walkers from David's side while he does the same from Gabe's. They manage to save both of them. After talking to David, David decides to part ways with everyone since he can't change. Javi can choose to convince him to go back (depending on your relationship with David, he says that he won't do it (he comes back later anyway) or disagrees, (resulting in the keep walking choice) or to keep walking, leaving David's fate unknown.

Others go back to Richmond, where they meet Jesus. With the help of Gabe, Javi pushes the button on the top of the gate to open it. After that Javi, Clem and Gabe start looking for Kate, eventually finding her as a walker. Javi can choose to shoot her or leave her as a walker. If Javi convinced David to come back, he is seen after that. After 3 days, Javi and Gabe talk about Kate, David and Mariana. Judging from the dialogue, David is still alive and in Richmond again, but refuses to talk to Javi and Gabe. (if convinced to come back).

ENDING 2: Javi and Clem help Kate save Richmond together.[]

Javi and Clem shoot walkers with guns while Kate drives a bulldozer. On the way to the gate, they encounter Jesus. Javi jumps into the bucket of the bulldozer and is lifted up to the top of the gate, where he presses the button and opens the gate. After that Jesus' group decides to get walkers which managed to get inside into 1 large group and lead them out, while Javi's group decides to plug to breach to stop more walkers from entering. When Javi's gun is out of ammo he changes positions with Kate and uses the truck from "Thicker Than Water" to plug the breach. They meet Jesus after that and Kate stays behind, while Javi and Clem go after Gabe and David.

They discover their car overrun, David dead and Gabe nearby, bitten on the wrist. While they say goodbye to him, Gabe gives Clem his cards to teach AJ euchre and then depending on the endings of season 2, Clem kisses Gabe (if you went with Jane), hugs him twice (if you went with Kenny), holds his hand and tells him to be strong for whatever comes next (if you went alone) or says that him dying is wrong and that he deserved better (if you went to Wellington). Javi then has the choice to give the gun to Gabe so he can kill himself or Javi can shoot Gabe himself. After 3 days, Javi and Kate talk about Gabe and Mariana and depending on your decision in "Thicker Than Water", Javi gets in the relationship with Kate or rejects her (if you shared the feelings) OR Javi agrees or disagrees to distance himself from Kate (if you rejected her feelings).

ENDING 3: Javi goes after Gabe and David while Clem helps Kate save Richmond.[]

Javi alone goes on the motorcycle, leaving Clem and Kate behind. He manages to find their car, but since he is alone, he manages only to kill walkers on Gabe's side, which results in David being bitten on the neck. After saying goodbye to David, Javi gives his gun to Gabe and he shoots David in the head. He and Gabe then return to Richmond, where they meet Jesus. Javi then opens the gate with Gabe's help. They then meet up with Clem and she informs them that she and Kate got separated after they sealed the gate. Kate is nowhere to be found, as nobody is able to find her, making Kate's fate unknown, but for the characters, she is presumed dead. The game jumps 3 days forward and Javi talks with Gabe about Kate, David and Mariana.

ENDING 4: Javi helps Kate save Richmond while Clem goes after Gabe and David.[]

Clem takes the motorcycle and leaves Javi and Kate behind. While shooting the walkers, Javi and Kate meet Jesus. Javi jumps into the bucket of the bulldozer and is able to open the gate. After that they decide to plug the breach, so no more walkers can get inside. Javi's gun runs out of bullets, so Javi changes positions with Kate and then plugs the breach with the truck from "Thicker Than Water". After talking with Jesus for a bit, Clem comes back with slightly injured, non-bitten Gabe and informs them of David's death. Javi and Kate then go on the place where he died. They found his body and Kate takes his dog tags. She explains why and then with the help of Javi buries David and his dog tags. Javi can say some last words to David's grave and Kate leaves her wedding ring on said grave. After 3 days Javi and Kate talk about David. Depending on your decision in "Thicker Than Water", Javi gets in the relationship with Kate or rejects her (if you shared the feelings) OR Javi agrees or disagrees to distance himself from Kate (if you rejected her feelings).

Chapter 5: Second Chances[]

The next part is non-determinant and happens regardless of the player's choices:

If Conrad is alive, Javi talks with him about the book he is reading. He mentions Francine recommended it to him and is ashamed he said he didn't like it. He jokingly says not to tell Francine about it to Javier. After this, Javier proceeds to talk to Jesus. If you choose 'I like you, Jesus', they proceed to flirt, and then they discuss Richmond. Jesus says that Javier is capable enough to lead the community and that change is in the air here. Javier can either choose to step up or decide to leave. If you decide to leave, Jesus will at least ask you to stay until the mess is sorted out. If Gabe is alive, he thanks Jesus for saving his life. If Lingard is alive, he tells Javi and Clem the location of AJ.

Chapter 6: The Dawn Breaks[]

After that Javi chats with Clem while giving her a haircut that resembles Mariana's hair style. If Gabe is alive, she says that she will miss him. After that, he can choose to tell her to leave AJ alone if he's happy or take him back to Richmond. After saying goodbye to Javi and survivors of Garcia family, she leaves Richmond. After credits show a scene of Clem going from the train tunnel from "Ties That Bind - Part 2" while killing walkers. She says that she will find AJ, and the text "Clementine's story will continue..." shows up, hinting a new season.

  • When Javier is given the choice to help Kate save Richmond or go after David and Gabe, depending on Clementine's decisions made in the flashbacks in "Ties That Bind - Part 2" and "Above The Law", Clem's path will differ, either choosing to go wherever Javier goes, go after David and Gabe, help Kate save Richmond or choosing whatever Javier doesn't choose in order to have everything covered:
    • Clementine will follow Javi's lead if she's loyal (If Clementine accepted Ava's offer, injected AJ and said goodbye to AJ) or bold (If Clementine accepted Ava's offer, injected AJ and spat in David's face)
    • Clementine will go after Gabe if she's understanding (If Clementine accepted Ava's offer, did not inject AJ and said goodbye to AJ) or forgiving (If Clementine rejected Ava's offer, did not inject AJ and said goodbye to AJ)
    • Clementine will go with Kate if she's cold (If Clementine rejected Ava's offer, injected AJ and spat in David's face) or just (If you accept Ava's offer, did not inject AJ and spat in David's face)
    • Clementine will go wherever Javi doesn't if she's level headed (If Clementine rejected Ava's offer, injected AJ and said goodbye to AJ) or honest (If Clementine rejected Ava's offer, did not inject AJ and spat in David's face)
  • Paul Lingard will appear in this episode if he was spared in "Thicker Than Water".
  • Depending on if Badger was killed by Javier in "Above The Law", Jesus will mention how initially he was skeptical of Javi's good-willed personality, but after he saved Richmond he regained his trust in him. Alternatively, if Badger wasn't killed by Javier then he will say he knew Javi was a good guy from the start of meeting him.
  • Whoever died throughout the season will appear on the memorial wall at the end of the episode.

  • This is the first episode since "No Time Left" where you can't play as Clementine.
  • This is the first time a new season is being mentioned at the end of an episode.
  • This episode has a total of four endings, the second most before "No Going Back".
  • The book Conrad reads in this episode is Lonesome Dove by Larry McMurtry.
  • This is the first episode in the series where a determinant status for a character is revealed in promotional art for the episode. This character being Kate as she is shown as a walker in the main promotional art.
  • When Kate discovers that Javi and David are on the rooftop, she warns the former that she ran into Tripp/Ava, despite the fact that during the time of their trial and the execution of one of them, she was nowhere in the vicinity. Making it unknown how she was aware of the situation in the previous episode.
  • This is the second episode to contain a post-credit scene, after "No Time Left".
  • There are three non-canon Easter egg endings in this episode.
    • When Javier descends the water tower to turn on the generator, he has the option of turning around and walking away from the garage. If he walks too far underneath the water tower, he is suddenly stopped by two dancing walkers and a third one who speaks in Javier's voice. The "talker" commends Telltale employee Grady Standard for his personality and his "beautiful, golden hair" as Javier stands frozen in terror. Javier then convulses as if he is being devoured by walkers and dies.
    • If Javier chooses to go to after Gabriel and David and fails to kill the final walker, the walker turns and bites Javier in the neck. Gabriel comes to his rescue and kicks the walker away, but is too late to save him. Gabriel informs him that David had been killed as Javier clings to life. Javier tells his nephew that he must go back to Richmond to help Kate save everyone left alive. Gabriel promises him that he would help Kate before Javier bleeds out. Gabriel sits next to his uncle's corpse as more walkers approach.
    • If Javier goes with Kate to save Richmond and fails to kill the walkers with the single-shot setting of his rifle, he is dragged off the bulldozer and devoured. Kate rushes to help him, but she too is taken down by one of the walkers and killed. If Clementine went with Javier to help Kate, she is left confused and horrified by their sudden demises before she is also taken from the bulldozer and devoured.
  • On the memorial wall near the end of the episode, the following photographs of deceased or missing named characters will be featured (Due to the mutually exclusive nature of some character's deaths, the memorial wall will feature a minimum of eight, and a maximum of fourteen, photographs out of sixteen):
    • Ava
    • Badger
    • Clinton Barnes (if Javier accepted his deal in "Thicker Than Water")
    • Conrad (if Javier shot him in "Ties That Bind - Part 2", he was not given the gun in "Above The Law" or Javier failed to avoid Kate's truck in "Thicker Than Water")
    • David García (if Clementine returned to help Richmond first or Javier did not ask him to return to Richmond after saving his life in "From The Gallows")
    • Francine
    • Gabriel García (if Javier and Clementine both returned to help Richmond first in "From The Gallows")
    • Ida

Goofs/Errors/Animating Mistakes[]

  • Albeit rarely, in the flashback scene at the start of the episode, Salvador's mouth and face will not animate and sync up to his talking.
  • When Javier stands up after killing a walker and runs toward the truck, the door is closed. Before and after this sequence, it is open.
  • Even if Tripp dies in "Thicker Than Water", he will still appear for a brief second once everyone makes it onto the highway.
  • If Conrad is run over by Kate in the previous episode, and Javier tells her of his fate, several graphical glitches occur. The camera will move out of position, Javier's model will briefly stiffen, and Kate's character will briefly assume the default 'T' pose with somewhat crossed arms before going straight as if she had just hugged Javier. In the next scene, Javier's bat will clip through him and Kate, despite the fact that he was not holding it in the previous scene, and as Kate says "It was an accident!", her eyes will flicker and appear to be crossed. After the scene is finished, everything returns to normal.
  • Many of Fern's facial animations appear to be unimplemented, as she expresses no emotion to having her arm broken or talking about her dead daughter. Her lips do not move whilst crying out in pain, either. While this was fixed in a later patch, it should also be noted that Fern's subtitle color changed from white to turquoise.
  • Eleanor's outcry when Tripp is executed in episode 4 is reused again after David breaks Fern's arm.
  • If Rufus was killed in the first episode, after Fern's arm is broken, Gabe will still make a comment about the deceased Rufus, despite him not being there.
  • If Javier chops Rufus's arm off, his mouth animation seems to sync poorly with his agonized screams.
  • After David tosses Fern's gun away, it seems to appear in varying distances to and away from a table in each shot the camera returns to it. In a first shot, the gun is right next to a table leg. In a second shot, the gun is directly in the middle of two table legs, and by the third shot, it's completely ahead of the table.
  • In one shot David wavers a gun to his side, but when there's a shot of Kate asking him why's he pointing at them, the shot switches to David already having raised up the gun and looking at it.
  • During the entire scene after David breaks Fern's arm, there's a brief but continuous loop of Fern crying in the background.
  • If Javier is forced to put down a zombified Kate, once he fires the gun and screams, none of the walkers are attracted to the sound.
    • Sometimes during this scene, the gunshot sound effect does not sync up with the animation.
  • A few lines by the characters cut off abruptly before they are fully spoken.
  • There aren't many walkers around the generator when Javier draws close to it. But after the third cutscene, the generator is suddenly surrounded by walkers.
  • After the second cutscene at the generator, a walker may spawn behind you, killing Javier instantly, but only if the player chooses to walk to the right side.
  • As David and Gabe take off in the truck, one of the walkers that follow after them is actually 2-dimensional and can be fairly transparent depending on which system the game is played on.
  • If Clementine decides to help Kate in Richmond and Javier goes after Gabe and David, when Javier returns to Richmond, searching for Kate, there's a severe glitch with one of Jesus's horseman, repositioning the horse out of the shot and literally dragging it to another position.
  • In the ending(s), after the pictures are placed on the wall, various shots will have them inexplicably rearranged in different places.
  • At the memorial wall is Mariana's stuffed animal that she had left at the García home years ago (as seen in the flashback of "Above The Law"). It is unknown how it got there.
  • If Kate survives and is talking to Javier inside the church, she's the first to walk but stops for some reason. Next shot immediately shows her ahead as though she had been walking all along.
  • In the end, when Javier is talking to Jesus, there is a scene where Jesus positions his horse, and the horse seems have tilted downward in a very bizarre and awkward position, with neither of its forelegs or hind legs bent.
  • When Javier tries to rescue Kate in the truck, the door is open as he is attacked by a walker, but in the next shot, the door is closed.
  • Joan is credited at the end of this episode, despite the fact that she does not appear.

Deleted Sequences[]

  • Joan or Clint would appear in this episode depending on who died in the previous one: [3]
    • If Joan is to survive in "Thicker Than Water", she would appear, and the player would decide her fate: Execute her, exile her from Richmond, or let her stay.
    • If Clint survived the previous episode, he would come to suggest about keeping the stolen supplies from the raided communities. If he is dead, Eleanor will suggest about not keeping them instead.
  • According to animation and sound files, there would be a Clementine flashback from Season 1 where the first day of the apocalypse began.
