Post Apocalypse Information-Episode 1,Season 1 Edit
As Lee was being transported to the correctional facility,his enlisted officer,having his usual chat with the felon,was not paying attention on the road resulting in the police cruiser hitting a "person" and causing the officer to lose control of the car and crash into the woods.
The brutal collision force that both Lee and the Officer endure is high enough to knock them both unconscious.The Officer however was able to regain his consciousness faster then Lee did,as screams can be heard while Lee has a slight moment of consciousness.Lee having awaken some time later(A rough estimate would be 3-4 days of coma) notices the wreck,his injured leg and the fact that he's very thirsty.Looking around Lee is able to notice the officer's corpse,itself being dragged from his car seat not ejected as Lee can remark.Finding a way out of the wreck,Lee goes on to check on the now dead police officer,grabbing the officer's keys,he goes on to unlock his handcuff's.However right as Lee gets his handcuff's off the police officer comes back to life.This shocks Lee,because it was visible that the officer was not breathing anymore.Backing up away from the undead police officer Lee notices the the policeman's shotgun,Initially intending to threaten the man to "Back off" he is forced to shoot him due to the officer not responding to his request.
Spooked by the whole situation Lee notices the noise coming from the forest,couple of seconds later revealing walking corpses coming out from behind the trees and bushes.Spooked by the event Lee gathers his strenght and try's to run,but is unable to and trips over couple of times while trying to get away from the "instigators".Reaching safety beyond a fence,Lee begins looking for clues as to what exactly might be happening.He goes into a house searching for help,but notices the grim situation in which the home is.Lee will find a telephone with 3 messages on the waiting list,listening to them reveals what happend to the owners of the house leaving Lee even more confused as to what is happening.Eventually Lee finds a walkie talkie which he uses to communicate with a girl,named Clementine.As they talk Clementine reveals this "incident" has been happening for over 2 days as that is when she started to hide in her treehouse when her babysitter was atacked by one of the "monsters".Lee and Clementine talk,but Clementine is eventually scared by her undead babysitter creeping up upon Lee,after observing each other in the house's window.
Lee is forced to battle the undead babysitter until Clementine comes down and lends him a hammer.Lee will use that hammer to dispose of Sandra(the babysitter,as Clementine called her).After realizing that Clementine's parents are the ones who left the messages on the phone and her telling him they are on vacation he takes Clementine under his wing,promising to protect her and at the same time,look for her parents(You have the choice of telling her the truth or not,but she will not respond well).Lee is confrunted with the choice of leaving the now safe house during the day,or the next night.
The first choice leads Lee and Clementine to meet Shawn Greene and his friend Chet trying to move a car blocking their own.After having a initial conversation the undead appear and force them to move.Lee helps out Shawn move the wreckage away.After the deed is done they all get in Shawn's truck and drive away to his family's farm.
The second choice leads Lee and Clementine outside the house during the night,no Shawn or Chet to be seen near the house's gate.After a little while a gunshot comes their way.Clementine and Lee take cover behind a car,Lee carefully reassuring her that it's the police and that they are after him.Later it is revealed it is actually Shawn and a Police Officer named Andre Mitchell.After Shawn Making a snarky remark that those "things" won't listen to police protocol Lee and Clementine get out of cover with their hands raised.Both Shawn and Andre are relived that they are living people and request their help in finding their friend Chet,who had been atacked by the walkers earlier that day.Lee agrees to the request,but out of the blue,an undead Chet appears,forcing Shawn and the others to get into Andre's Police cruiser ready to leave.Andre tries to put Chet out of his misery but he can't bring himself to shoot him.
Both outcomes lead Lee and Clementine to arrive at the Greene Family Farm during the night.With either Chet taking his goodbye from Shawn or with Andre leaving in his car.Either way they meet Hershell Greene,the father of Shawn,who makes a irritable remark to his son for bringing more guest's to his farm.Noticing Lee's injured leg,he invites them onto the farm with the condition for them to sleep in his barn,as that he doesn't run a "Bed and Breakfast".While fixing up Lee's leg,Hershel begins questioning him,as to how he got out the city.Lee can opt to lie or tell the truth.As the conversation wraps up,Shawn warns his father about the danger the walkers pose to the farm.Dependent if you went out in the day or the night,Hershell will either agree to the idea that fortifying the farm is necessary or the dismiss the idea alltogether and letting Shawn do his own thing.
The next shot is framed by Lee and Clementine having a short and funny conversation before sleep,with the following frame depicting Lee having a nightmare.
In the morning,a Stranger,who later presents himself Kenny,wakes Lee and Clementine up.Clementine feels uncomfortable as her hair is itchy which results in Kenny making a crude joke about spiders scaring Clementine,he also mistakes Lee for her father.As Lee and Kenny walk out of the Barn they meet his son,Kenny Jr,which he nicknames Duck,for his "quacking" Lee gets to meeting everyone.He leaves Clementine in Kenny's Wife's hands,Katjaa while he checks in on everyone.After attenting to everyones needs Lee is called into the barn where Hershell confrunts him about his lack of honesty the night prior(determinantly) and he gives him advice about how to make it out there,if the situation in the cities doesn't improve.
