This is speculation, but if it's true, this is a MAJOR spoiler. Don't read. I can say that if it's true, it WILL hamper your enjoyment of the episode

 

As for others who are enticed...

Imagine a group of a hundred motorcycles driving down a freeway. Eventually, they hit a junction. One road goes northwest and the other goes northeast. So one guy, we'll call him S, says, "Let's go northwest!" A mile past the intersection, a semi careens into the group and kills ninety of them. Ten are wounded, but they survive and keep going. Eventually, they hit 10,000 miles. S suddenly has his consciousness thrown into his past body right before the junction. Now, he says, "Let's go northeast!" All 100 bikers survive. Happily ever after, right? But what about the ten, no nine, who went northwest and survived? What happens to the reality they were living? Does it just disappear now that S has changed the past? It's not like only bad things happened on that 10,000 mile journey. Maybe one of them fell in love with a gas station attendant and got her pregnant or maybe one adopted a homeless kid that joined the adventure. That 10,000 mile journey would be full of stories. Romances, farewells, friendships...the loss of those ninety lives is horrible and unfortunate, but what would rewriting their history mean? The nine who survived lived full lives and did the best they could with the hand they were dealt. How could it be right to just erase all that? Isn't that worth something? Is there a point to a world where everything is happy? Are people who struggle for a better life just idiots? Being human is about fighting even when it seems hopeless and finding happiness in a world that hates it. Are you saying that's worthless?

That's why it's speculation, but Telltale has never reused vehicle models before and it always means something when they reappear (station wagon, Ed's car at the pit stop, Shel's RV at the camp, Nate's truck). I don't think they'd reuse something as iconic as the RV just for a background prop

Though it is strange how Telltale would allow Nicki to make such an annoucement

Not sure I understand. 

 

I know that this voice actress plays a certain character, but I don't see how the character is inherently connected to this vehicle.

That's what I thought, too. Keep in mind that the group abandons the RV near the train. If you leave Lilly behind, the last we see is that she's running down the road from a zombie. She could've caught up to where the group was and take the RV for herself. Plus, Gavin Hammond (Kenny) confirmed that in Season 1 they recorded a scene for Episode 5 where Lilly returned with the RV, so Telltale has definitely had the idea in their palms

To have her resurface with the RV is totally plausible in one scenario, but in the other it would be extremely hard to believe, at least for me. 

 

If she resurfaced with or without it based on what you did in the previous game, that would be okay. Otherwise...

It would be unbelievable but the same can be said about Kenny surviving in one scenario even though it was completely implausible

I'm not one of those people who will slander something for lack of realism, and as interesting as it would be to see Lilly again, doesn't it seem a tad implausible for Clementine to run into Lilly after just recently reuniting with Kenny? I'm almost certain Clementine will see Christa again too, so this all seems rather contrived. I know this story is already set in an unrealistic universe, but even then, it should stay as realistic as possible within its own parameters. 

 

If Lilly is to reveal herself again, and if it is executed properly to the plot, I'm willing to eat my own words and brush realism aside.

It would be unrealistic, but I'm willing to sacrifice realism for the sake of the story and Season 2 kind of needs to get its act together

I wonder if we'll just find out through Clem sharing the story with the group, maybe Kenny? Considering they're in a similar situation (newborn baby born in the ZA, no home base to speak of) I could see it being worked in that way. Learning it from Christa would be much more exciting because it would mean she's alive, of course, but yeah...I'm on high troll alert these days thanks to TWD as a whole. I have serious trust issues now, haha.

I was disappointed that Episode 4 didn't have Clementine mention Christa once considering the group was all focused on the pregnancy. I can see Kenny mentioning how they have to fight for the baby's survival and then Clem bringing up what happened to Christa's. I always assumed stillbirth but maybe it'll be something else. Maybe the episode will start with a flashback where we play as younger Clementine again? 

 

The fact that Gavin Hammond knows what happened makes me think that he lives past the shootout, though. At least in one plotline. I saw one fan theory that whoever you sided with (Luke/Kenny on whether or not to leave now or a few days from now) will determine who dies. Like, siding with Luke will prompt him to shield Clementine from a hail of bullets
