Rebecca's son was delivered by Kenny at the observation deck at Parker's Run. The child was first believed to be stillborn, but suddenly begins to cry which then showed that he was successfully born alive and healthy. However, delivering him caused the weakness of his mother. When Clementine wakes up, Rebecca is seen holding her child and offers Clementine to hold him. Kenny will eventually take hold of the baby in order to allow Rebecca to get some rest. However, after Kenny and Luke begin arguing, Rebecca will awaken and demand to have her baby back, which Kenny will accede to and apologize. When the group travels to the town across the river, he is being held by his gravely ill mother Rebecca, who soon rests up at the side of the road. When the group is surrounded by a group of Russians, Rebecca soon dies from hypothermia and blood loss from childbirth. Her son is last seen crying on Rebecca's lap after her death and reanimation, after which either Clementine or Kenny will shoot her in order to save him.
At the start of the episode, Clementine will fall to the ground to prevent getting shot, as she notices the baby on the ground crying. She will attempt to crawl towards him and Luke sees Clementine and warns her to get to cover. Then, she is given a choice:
If Clementine chooses to protect the baby: Clementine will run towards him, will grab him and then will hide behind the cover. Luke will say that he didn't see him out here and praises Clementine for saving him. Luke will peek out and attempt to shoot at the Russians but fails, so he asks Clementine if she could cover him while he'll run to the other side of the wall, but gets shot in the leg in the process.
If Clementine chooses to go behind cover: Clementine will run and hide behind the wall. Luke will peek out and see the baby laying in the open with bullet impacts near him. He quickly runs and grabs him, and while going back behind cover he gets shot in the leg.
After the conflict that resulted in nearly all of the Russians being killed, Kenny, infuriated towards Arvo, decides to kill him as well but Arvo mentions a place that has supplies. Everyone agrees to follow Arvo, thus making Kenny tying Arvo's hands. Later, the group decide to rest for a while, and after talking to Luke, Clementine goes to change Kenny's bandage. Kenny tells her that he decided to name the baby Alvin Jr. after his deceased father. Clementine agrees to name him Alvin Jr. as that's what his parents would like. Kenny will reminiscent sadly about Alvin's death and says that he should have done something to prevent it, Kenny states that his father should be alive for AJ, and comments that AJ will be tougher than him when he'll grow up.
Later as the sun is setting, the group reach an abandoned power station. Kenny hands AJ to Clementine and goes to investigate the station. AJ starts crying and Clementine calms him down. After a small conversation with Bonnie, Clementine will give her AJ to carry. Kenny and Jane return, assuring the station is safe where the group spends the night.
While the group are discussing around a fire, Kenny holds AJ closely in his arms, and when he volunteers to take the first watch, he takes AJ with him. Later when Clementine talks to Kenny, the two will discuss Kenny's family, specifically Duck, and he will state that he will not make the same mistakes he made raising Duck when he raises AJ. Further, Clementine can convince Kenny to join the group by the fire if she notes that AJ might get cold away from the fire, to which Kenny agrees.
The next day, the group reaches a frozen lake which is standing between them and their destination. Arvo assures that the lake is solid enough to cross it. While the group is crossing the frozen lake, walkers start approaching them, and a panicked Arvo starts running which makes Kenny chase him in fury. Mike, who is carrying AJ, will run after Kenny to make sure he doesn't do anything bad to Arvo. After the events on the lake, Mike will carry AJ inside the unfinished house and place him in a small blanketed box.
Later, Kenny asks Clementine to help with a truck he is trying to fix, but she is hesitant to leave AJ's side. Jane will tell her that she'll take care of him and so Clementine goes outside with Kenny and discovers he is showing his concern for the baby. After the two talk and fail to start the truck, Clementine gets back to house and discovers that Jane had moved AJ into another room, because Mike and Arvo wouldn't keep quiet. Suddenly AJ wakes up and starts crying, making Jane become visibly confused and suggest that it probably needs food. Clementine comforts him and has the option to give him to Jane. If she does so, Jane will take hold of AJ momentarily, until he starts to puke on her after which she hands him back to Clementine. She will then feed him with the baby formula and shows a worry that there's not much left. After Kenny gets the truck started, the group will eventually consider the baby when deciding where their destination should be, with Bonnie stating that there might be more baby formula back at Howe's Hardware. Nonetheless, the group decide to rest for the night and decide in the morning.
After Clementine is abruptly shot by Arvo and loses consciousness during the night, she wakes up in the back seat of the truck with Kenny and Jane holding AJ. Kenny tells Clementine that the rest of the group left on foot with Arvo. Kenny and Jane start arguing on finding the safest location, the fight between them gets heated, and Kenny makes a hard brake to prevent hitting the cars and debris blocking the way. Kenny instantly asks if they are alright, specifically asking for AJ's safety, before he exits the vehicle to salvage some gasoline in the abandoned cars. Suddenly, Clementine and Jane hear some gunshots and walkers start to emerge. Jane tells Clementine to drive away but they eventually crash, and Jane will be forced escape with AJ leaving Clementine within the truck. With the group split up Clementine finds herself lost in a vicious blizzard.
Clementine is left alone wandering aimlessly with walkers near her until she reaches a rest area where Kenny was sheltering. He instantly questions her about AJ's whereabouts, and after he discovers that he was left with Jane, he rushes outside of the rest area in search of them. Jane soon arrives without AJ, which enrages Kenny whose motive was to keep the baby safe. Jane tells Clementine to stay away from the fight that's about to occur. The two begin to fight, and eventually Clementine is on the ground with a gun next to her and can choose from two options:
If Clementine Shoots Kenny: Clementine will shoot Kenny before he stabs Jane. When she goes over to him, he says Clementine made a good decision and they have a short conversation before he dies. Clementine then sheds tears before hearing a baby crying in the background and realizes it is AJ. Clementine rushes ahead to find AJ in a car and Jane follows to explain that while she understands why Clementine would be upset over Kenny's death, she set up the whole fight to show how dangerous he was, meaning that AJ was safe the entire time. Clementine can then either choose to go with Jane (leading to the ending, "With Jane" below), or scold her for having taken advantage of Kenny's violent tendencies and causing his death and leave her behind, taking only AJ with her (leading to the ending, "Alone with Clementine" below).
Don't pick up the gun/Look Away: Clementine will let Kenny stab Jane in the chest. Clementine, angered, can shoot and kill Kenny over the death of Jane (leading to the ending, "Alone with Clementine" below). If Kenny survives, Clementine, and Kenny hear a baby crying and find AJ in a car and realize that Jane lied about AJ being dead the whole time. Clementine can then choose to go with Kenny to Wellington (leading to the ending, "With Kenny" below) or leave him alone as he is getting too dangerous to take care of AJ (leading to the ending, "Alone with Clementine" below).
Nine days later, Clementine, Jane and AJ are both back at Howe's Hardware, now seemingly abandoned. Jane will discover some baby formula for AJ and other supplies left at Howe's, as well as the greenhouse still remaining in good shape. She will then suggest that they should stay for a while at Howe's, but Clementine then notices a group of three survivors approaching them; a man, woman and boy. They head down to greet them through a fence, and the other group will claim that they need help and had been walking for weeks looking for food. One of the men will ask Clementine if the baby she is holding is hers before having a short conversation about them trying to head north. The group then explain that Howe's needs a lot of work and that they would be willing to work there if they were allowed shelter inside. Jane will explain to Clementine that there is not much food left, leading to two further possible outcomes:
Invite them in: Clementine will allow them to come in through a side entrance. Jane will question Clementine about whether that was the right choice as they head to meet them at the entrance. Upon opening the entrance, the group will enter and the woman will introduce themselves as Patricia, whom will then thank and hug Jane tightly. Another one of the group members turns his back to Clementine, to which she then notices that he had hidden a gun in his back pocket. After silently signifying this to Jane, the boy will compliment Clementine's hat, as the screen fades to black and the episode ends.
Make them leave: Clementine will demand them to leave, much to the groups' surprise, and they will turn around and begin to leave. As they leave, Clementine notices that the man had a hidden gun in his back pocket, and Jane thanks her for making that decision. Clementine will state that they have to lookout for themselves now, as the boy of the group turns and stares at Clementine. Jane says that they might return, to which Clementine states that they will be ready, as the screen fades to black and the episode ends.
Nine days later, Clementine and Kenny holding AJ are beginning a walk up a hill with smoke trailing from the other side of it. They will race one another up the hill with Kenny saying to AJ that they are going to win, and upon reaching the top, both will be stunned as they witness a gigantic wall of metal stretching for miles. Kenny exclaims that it has to be Wellington, and as they approach they are quickly halted by a gunshot purposefully hitting the ground in front of them. A woman's voice on a speaker then demands for them to stop, drop their weapons, and approach the gate, which they do without hesitation. Upon nearing the gate, the women reveals herself on a small risen outlet on the wall. They will introduce one another, and as Kenny introduces AJ, the woman, now known to be Edith, states that AJ will be a little heart-breaker when he grows up. After Kenny asks what they should do in order to get in, Edith gives them the bad news and drops a bag of supplies outside of the outlet. Kenny, confused and broken that they won't let them inside, questions Edith and Clementine reinforces the fact they have a baby, but she replies that they are over capacity as it is. As she continues explaining, Kenny will interrupt, asking her to just take the children. Edith will go and ask someone if it is possible, as Clementine questions what Kenny is doing. Edith will quickly return and say that she can take the children inside, and Kenny deeply thanks her and begins a conversation to convince Clementine to enter Wellington without him. He claims that he can't be trusted to protect them anymore, and that she and AJ would be safe within Wellington. There are then two further subsequent endings that can occur here:
Enter Wellington: Clementine will accept the offer and hug Kenny tightly as he says this is the right decision. He further asks Clementine to tell AJ about his family and all of the people who tried to keep him safe, before he takes off his hat and hands it to Clementine, saying that she should give it to AJ when he grows up. After Kenny asks Edith to keep an eye on them and for Clementine and AJ to live a good life, Kenny turns and begins walking in the other direction, taking the bag of supplies with him. The gates open up into Wellington with Edith standing to bring Clementine and AJ inside. As they enter, Clementine turns to watch Kenny leave and she sees him pause briefly before continuing further away. Clementine turns and enters into Wellington as the gates begin to close, focusing on Kenny walking away before the screen begins to fade to black and the episode ends.
Leave with Kenny: Clementine will refuse the offer, explaining to Kenny that they are leaving together. However, Kenny will continue in an attempt to convince Clementine to enter Wellington, but she will stop him in his speech and ask for them to leave together. Edith, torn by their conversation, will throw out a second bag of supplies, saying that she was told to only give one bag per group, and after saying they can check back in a few months and wishing them luck, she departs. Kenny and Clementine will have a short conversation before picking up the bags of supplies and carrying AJ away from Wellington, as the screen fades to black and the episode ends.
Alone with Clementine
If Clementine had allowed Jane to die then shot Kenny (or abandoned the survivor of the brawl), then nine days later, Clementine, out of the snowstorm, will be walking in an unknown area with AJ in her arms. After walking up upon a small hill, she will spot a walker herd in the distance. She will finish off a dying walker nearby and cover both herself and AJ in walker guts, thus allowing the two to safely travel through the herd. As she walks off towards it, the screen flashes to black and the episode ends.
Alvin Jr. Will appear in Season 3.
This list shows the victims Alvin Jr. has killed
- Rebecca (Indirectly Caused)
- "Who is a perfect little man? Who is the most perfect little man in the whole world? You are! That's right. You are."
- —Rebecca comforting her new baby.[src]
Rebecca really cares about her son, despite hating one of his possible fathers. After he was born, Rebecca is seen comforting the baby, telling the baby that he is the most perfect son in the world. Despite the fact she knows that the baby is most likely Carver's, she tells the others that the baby is Alvin's. Later on, when Kenny excessively asks for Rebecca to hand the baby to him in an intent to let Rebecca rest up for a while, Rebecca refuses Kenny's offer, saying that she can take care of him, showing that she is very protective of her own baby. She dies with Alvin in her arms.
- "It looks like Alvin. (...) Definitely."
- —Clementine to Rebecca about the baby. (Determinant)[src]
Alvin is one of the possible fathers of Alvin Jr. Alvin never has the chance to meet his wife's baby, but he clearly cares deeply about the well-being of both the baby and his mother while she is pregnant with him. He later discovers that the baby may not be biologically his but his possible last words to Clementine asking her to take care of them would suggest that he doesn't care about that and still cares about the baby as much as he did before.
- " It doesn't look like Carver."
- —Clementine to Rebecca about the baby. (Determinant)[src]
William Carver is one of the possible fathers or Alvin Jr. Carver never has the chance to meet Rebecca's baby, but seems to care about the baby, saying that he wants his family to be raised in a safe place. However, after Rebecca and Carver are finished meeting in his office, she walks away weeping. Behind her, Carver says that he will not allow his child to be raised among the weak at Howe's, implying that he might be planning to kill the child.
- "He's cute."
- —Clementine to Bonnie about the baby. (Determinant)[src]
Clementine has her first interaction with the baby at the lodge. Rebecca offers to let her listen to the baby kick, to which she can accept or decline. Clementine is saddened when she thought the baby died in labor, but when the baby is revealed to be alive, she warmly smiles to the newborn and gathers around him along with the others. Later that night, Rebecca offers to let her take the baby, because they are family, to which Clementine can choose to accept or decline. If Clementine accepts Rebecca's offer, she is seen smiling as she rocks the baby. When the group decides to leave the observation deck, and is ambushed by Arvo's group, Clementine has an option to tell Arvo that they have a baby, showing that she is very protective towards the newborn.
In "No Going Back", Clementine has the option of rescuing Alvin Jr. after the Russian group ambushes them. If she fails to do so, Luke will rescue him instead. Later in the episode, Kenny hands the baby to Clementine in order for him to search the power station. As AJ starts crying, Clementine will be able to calm him down with multiple methods, showing that the two are starting to build a connection. Later as the group rest at the power station, Kenny takes care of AJ away from the fire, and Clementine can invite Kenny to return to the fire in order to keep the baby warm, showing her care for AJ. Further on, at the unfinished house, before Clementine goes outside to help Kenny, she will turn towards AJ showing her concern for him, but Jane reassures her that she will look after him. Later when Clementine returns, she finds Jane and AJ in a different room and AJ begins crying. Clementine will pick him up and he will instantly quiet down, further enforcing their growing connection. Clementine will then feed AJ but become worried that they are running out of baby formula. After the events of the blizzard, Clementine arrives at a rest area to find Kenny, and the two quickly worry about where AJ and Jane were. When Jane arrives without AJ, the two of them appear shocked and horrified, with Clementine requesting what Jane had done to him. Later after the fight between Kenny and Jane, Clementine will hear AJ crying from afar, and will instantly dash to find him. As she does so, she quickly picks him up and cuddles him, further proving their bond. No matter what options Clementine chooses, Clementine will be with AJ at the end of the episode.
In Season 3 it is revealed that Clementine is still looking after AJ. It is unknown as of now, but it's likely they have a very strong bond.
- "Back off, Kenny! She doesn't want you to take the baby. Don't be weird about it, okay?"
- —Luke to Kenny about Alvin Jr.[src]
After Rebecca gave birth to him, Luke and the rest of the group have been very protective towards him. Luke shows his protective nature towards the baby when Kenny persistently asks Rebecca to give the baby to him. Despite Kenny's good intention, Luke feels Kenny is acting strangely about the child. Later on, when the group is ambushed by Arvo's group, Luke and the rest of his group are seen protecting the baby by surrounding him, and blocking him from any harm possible that Arvo's Group could do. If Clementine fails to rescue him during the firefight, then Luke will do it, taking a bullet to the leg in the process.
- "Alvin Jr. it is. You like that? Well, I think AJ approves. "
- —Kenny to Alvin Jr. when naming him[src]
Kenny loves Alvin Jr. as if he was his own son, stating many times that he is going to raise him right and not make the same mistakes he made when raising Duck. Kenny is the person who decides to give Alvin Jr. his name, as well as giving him the nickname AJ. Kenny will do anything to make sure AJ is safe which causes a rift with the other survivors in the group, with Luke describing him as being creepy. When Kenny thinks Jane has killed AJ, he attacks Jane in revenge and tries to kill her. If Clementine doesn't kill Kenny, he will be relived when he finds out that AJ is safe. If Clementine decides to leave Kenny, he will tell her to look after AJ and raise him properly, and to tell him about everyone who died to keep him safe. If Clementine stays with Kenny and travels to Wellington, he will insist that they allow Clementine and AJ in without him. If Clementine refuses to leave, they will walk away from Wellington together. If, however, Clementine goes into Wellington with AJ, he will say his goodbyes to them, and he will give Clementine his hat, so that she can give it to AJ when he grows up.
While Kenny's relationship with Alvin Jr. is clearly one set up for a father and son, Kenny's feelings towards the baby are of a more symbolic nature than developing a bond. After losing Sarita, Kenny falls into a deep depression as he wishes Carver had killed him, seeing that he had no real purpose left in life. When the group finds out that he was the only one who knew how to deliver a baby, he sees it as his purpose to do so. After young Alvin's successful childbirth, Kenny sees the baby as the future, both figuratively and literally. He becomes obsessed with making sure the baby was ready for the harsh world it was born into, putting nothing before the safety and welfare of Alvin Jr. After Rebecca's death, Kenny believes himself to be the only person able to take care of him, as he had used to be a parent. Although he will sometimes allow others to care for Alvin, he does this because he is unsure of his ability to handle Alvin while performing another task that the group knows (or Kenny believes they know) that only he can do, such as holding Arvo at gunpoint while walking through the forest and across the ice or fixing the truck outside the unfinished house. When Jane arrives at the rest stop without the baby boy, he finds himself again without a purpose in life, driven to live only by the will to destroy the one who had stolen his reason to continue. It is very possible that Kenny would have just laid there next to Jane's corpse after killing her and waited to die had he not heard Alvin Jr.'s cries. Upon refocusing himself on keeping Alvin safe, he no longer believes himself to be the best protector of A.J., going as far as to beg Edith to accept Clementine and Alvin Jr. into Wellington without him in order to keep them safe. If Clementine disputes his request and refuses to leave him behind, he accepts her choice simply because he felt his self-confidence restored by the eleven-year-old's words and the opportunity to personally prepare A.J. to become what he wished his own son would become if he had more time with him. Overall, Kenny's feelings for Rebecca's son were not formed out of a natural emotion, but rather as gratitude for saving him from depression.
- "I think it needs food, or... something."
- —Jane to Clementine about Alvin Jr. (Determinant)[src]
Jane is never happy about the group having to look after a baby as she knows that it will be troublesome. Before the child is born, Jane asks Rebecca what she is going to do with the baby, implying that Rebecca might kill it. However, at the unfinished house, Jane offers to look after AJ while Clementine goes to help Kenny, suggesting that she begins to care for the baby. This is further shown by the fact that Jane moved AJ into another room when Arvo and Mike wouldn't be quiet, showing that Jane wants to try and keep the baby comfortable. However, if Clementine offers Jane to hold the baby, she will do so uneasily and the baby will puke on Jane. Later in "No Going Back", Jane will be seen holding AJ in the truck with Kenny. When the truck comes to an abrupt stop, Jane will shield the baby and say he is fine, and will later leave with him into the snow after they are ambushed by walkers. At the rest area, Jane suggests that she had to leave AJ out in the snow which enrages Kenny, but it later turns out that she had merely left him within a car. This suggests that Jane now cares for the baby's survival, despite her earlier remarks that it would just slow them down. However, there is the possibility that Jane did not hurt the baby for fear that Clementine would hate her for it and therefore if Clementine didn't care for the baby there would be nothing stopping Jane from killing him.
- "It ain't an "it". It's a he... and he has a name. Ain't that right, Alvie? Awww. Such a handsome boy."
- —Bonnie to Clementine about Alvin Jr. (Determinant)[src]
Bonnie is very protective and caring for AJ, especially after she mourns over Rebecca's corpse and states that she will look after AJ for her. Throughout the episode, Bonnie will often carry AJ as the group head towards the unfinished house. Bonnie will also freely take hold of the baby whenever it is needed, showing that she is always willing to look after and care for AJ when others are unable to. Bonnie also knows where the group can find more baby formula for AJ. Bonnie cared more about herself than the baby, however, evidenced when she ran away from the group to escape a man she believed to be dangerous and leaving Alvin Jr. with him.
- "We've still got some of that baby formula, but that won't help the rest of us."
- —Mike to the group regarding the baby.[src]
Mike cares for Alvin Jr. throughout his first few days of life. Mike is seen carrying the baby several times throughout "No Going Back", but will refuse to hold him when Alvin starts crying at the power station. Mike holds the baby while crossing the frozen lake, and brings him inside the unfinished house once Luke dies. Mike opts to leave Alvin Jr. behind when escaping with Arvo and Bonnie (Determinant) rather than risk being hunted down by Kenny if he took the baby, showing he cared more for himself than Rebecca's son.
- "Aw, what a handsome boy. Look at him. What's his name? "
- —Edith to Kenny about AJ.[src]
- Both Rebecca (Determinant) and Alvin incorrectly predicted that the baby would be a girl at some point, although Rebecca mentioned that Alvin was hoping for a boy.
- When Carver and Rebecca were talking, Carver said that he would not let his child grow up along the weak people at Howe's, and Rebecca left, weeping. This might mean that Carver was planning to kill the child had the group not escaped.
- Dialogue with Rebecca suggested that the child is Carver's.
