Did anyone notice the Eduardo (of the Kal and Eduardo duo) look-a-like in the teaser trailer for Season 2, Episode 2, "A House Divided"?

Spoiler




Walking Dead Wiki says that his name is Matthew for some reason. I'm guessing that the game files have his name. Oh, well. It's still sort of a cameo, I guess. They look exactly alike. Maybe they're twin brothers who share a deep appreciation for hoodies.


Except that dude is kinda...totally Asian.

And Eduardo is well, not.

Dat's wacist!

Honestly, I wouldn't have even known that Eduardo was supposed to be Hispanic if his name wasn't...Eduardo. I assumed he was Asian.

Another thing....Some Russian dude found this one some site.

It is an model of
(SPOILERS BEWARE IF THIS IS REAL)
Spoiler


He is unsure if it is a mod (which i think it is), or if it could possibly be a real model made by Telltale. It looks....oldish in coloration and overall, it doesnt quite look like Season 2's graphics (plus it doesnt make sense timeline-wise), but it doesnt quite look like a reskinned model either. (Least not a famous one) If it is a mod, it is a DAMN fine one.

To be honest....i'am unsure as well.

What do you guys think? Is this fake or real?

I don't think it's fake. It looks real enough. I don't think it's that comic character, though. Probably someone new

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?

I think it could be the latter.

The model doesnt look like a reskin of an existing model. It is not a photoshop, that much is clear.

It looks way too detailed for a simple modder, the artstyle is so spot-on for an completely new character model. I think it IS authentic.

That said, timeline-wise, it would kinda...make sense?

Spoiler


So if it is a flashback with Christa and Omid and Clem, it could work. Maybe. I dunno.

We'll see.

Anyhow, i'm gonna cross my fingers and hope that this IS true.

I don't think there will be any flashbacks. It's possible, but there wasn't even one in the first season, was there? I'm not sure how well flashbacks would work for a game like this, especially if it's just a cheap way to show that comic character.

Season 2 is set like a year and a half into the outbreak, so it wouldn't be possible.

Again, look at flashback example. It could work in that sense.

Maybe. We'll see.

To be honest I don't think we'll be seeing anybody from the comics again in the Telltale series. It was earlier days when Glenn and Hershel appeared in it, but now it seems like we'll be following Clementine to the hopefully not bitter end, and her story has already passed the current comics.

I think you're right, and it would be very difficult at this point to include a comic character because of the different timelines.  And of course, Telltale is probably especially afraid to do that now after the Lilly situation. 

 

I still think it'd be cool to see some kind of nod to the comics though, like passing by the destroyed prison or something like that.  It's OK if there doesn't end up being any kind of cameo or easter egg from the comics, it wouldn't hinder my enjoyment of the game at all, I just think it'd be cool.

You know I would love if they did pass the prison ruins. I always wondered what happened to the resources within the prison, and if anybody braved their way into the building to get it (the guns and ammunition, the endless amount of tinned cans etc)

since it seems like the location in season 2 of the TT game has already shifted north/out of GA, I can't see them incorporating anything from the TV series, unless it's going to be someone/someplace that hasn't shown up yet (i.e. - a season 5 or later cameo).

The thing is, the game shares the same universe as the comics, so they couldn't bring any TV characters in the first place. That said, it would be nice if they included little Easter eggs into the TV show. They've already done it with the map Michonne was looking at (Macon) and they were probably a few others I've forgotten about.

And after recent comic developments

oh, I get that the game/comic is supposed to be the same universe; but there have already been characters in all three (Glenn, Herschel, Shawn, Lilly... don't have to be mirror images of the TV character, but the general idea is still there) so it wouldn't be much of a stretch to pull more characters that appear in both the comic and the TV series into the game; but like I said, since the game setting has already moved north, it would be hard to bring a TV reference into it unless it's a 'sneak peek' at what is to come in future TV seasons.

Oops sorry I misread you haha. I can never really accept the TV show and the game being together (Hershel's farm for example. It's near enough straight out the comics, yet in the TV it's much bigger). Glenn has never hinted from being Macon. Lilly isn't a comic or TV character anymore so she doesn't bother me.

I would like to have an Easter egg though in the TV show that refers to the game. Like an overrun Motel (same one as in the game) or them actually being in Macon and you can see the Everett Pharmacy. And yeah it would be extremely difficult to add any more characters into it now. If the TV show and the game were in the same universe, the game is further ahead in regards of the timeline.
