It was released on September 25, 2018.

Summary

Beginning the next morning after the end of "Done Running", the children of the Ericson's Boarding School Group take a vote to exile Clementine and AJ out from the school for Marlon's death. After Clementine and AJ are forced to leave they run into Lilly and Abel, who reveal themselves to be members of a group called the Delta. Lilly asks Clementine to take her to the school so she can take the kids and tells her she will do it by force if she doesn't. Despite Clementine being beytrain by the school group she chooses not to cooperate. After escaping the two adults Clementine and AJ are rescued by a mysterious boy called James. He takes them back to the school because AJ was previously grazed with buckshot by Abel. For the rest of the episode Clementine reconciles with the school group and helps them prepare for the Delta's attack.

Trivia

  • First appearance of James.
  • First appearance of Sullene.
  • First appearance of Dorian.
  • First appearance of the Delta.
  • First (and last) appearance of Yonatan.
  • First (and last) appearance of Ms. Martin. (Zombified)
  • Last appearance of Mitch.
  • Last appearance of Marlon. (Flashback, Corpse)
  • In the greenhouse, Ms. Martin will grab Clementine by her arm. If the player fails in the QTE, Mitch will save Clementine.
  • When Mitch rushes at Lilly, he uses the same animation of Clementine after she fell to the ground due to a walker and started running to escape from Lilly and Abel in the woods.
    • Also, all characters uses the same crouching animation with a few modifications.
  • This episode has a total of 3 collectibles, a Boar Skull, a Mushroom and a Venus Flytrap. This is half of what episode 1 had.
    • The Fireman Toy that Tennessee gives AJ if you make AJ feel Justified over Marlon's death is not counted as a collectible despite the fact it can be placed on the drawer in Clementine's room.
  • This episode marks the return of Lilly, who has been missing since "Long Road Ahead".
    • As of this episode, Clementine and Lilly are the only two characters from Season 1 that are confirmed alive.
  • This is the second consecutive episode of the video game to not feature any determinant character deaths.
    • This episode does, however, force the player into deciding whether to save Louis or Violet at the end of the episode. Whoever Clementine does not save does not die, however, and they are taken by the Delta raiders alongside Omar and Aasim, leaving their fate unknown.
  • This episode marks the first time that the events of the Comic Series are directly referenced in the Video Game, when James tells Clementine about his past as a member of the Whisperers and their attack on another group.
  • This episode features an easter egg focused on Randy Tudor. In the scene where Clementine and Violet are watching the stars, if the player lets the game idle for a few seconds, a new constellation will appear, in the shape of a mustache. Connecting the dots will result in Randy's face appearing in the sky. He will smile, wink at the player and disappear, leaving the message "He will remember that." in the HUD after doing so.

Goofs/Errors

  • If Clementine shot Lee and Lee asked her to handcuff the zombified security guard instead of himself, AJ will still tell Clementine that she shot him while he was handcuffed.
  • Lilly will mention that Lee was the one who decided to abandon her on the side of the road in Season 1 even if the player didn't actually choose an option and had Kenny decide her fate instead.
  • Before going to the funeral, Tennessee drawing is not see on the wall if Clementine's puts it up. But its appears again later after Clementine and AJ return.
  • When AJ wakes up in the 2 weeks time-skip scene, the bullet marks that were on his shirt will suddenly disappear.
