- "But killing him? Is that really the answer?"
- —Stephanie talking to Shel's group about what to do with the hostage.[src]
An unknown person steals medical supplies from Stephanie's group. She, Roman, Shel, and Clive give chase and search the cornfield with flashlights to attempt and find the suspect. She can be heard shouting to the other group members, and at one point, her shadow, as well as Roman's, is visible through the field.
Stephanie resides at Gil's Pitstop with Shel, Becca, Roman, and the surviving cancer support group members Boyd, Clive, and Joyce. In the diner, they watch Becca give a guitar performance and then proceed to work. Stephanie notifies Shel and Becca that something is wrong, and the three rush off to find Roman. They find an intruder has broken in, and now his fate must be decided. Stephanie argues against harming the stranger as does Boyd, while Joyce and Clive vehemently believe killing him will prevent other outsiders from discovering their present location. Depending on Shel's choice, the man will be set free or murdered. If he is released, more members from the intruder's group will raid the camp and in the ensuing battle, Boyd dies. If the man is put down, no raid will occur and Boyd remains alive.
Twenty-three days pass since the intruder incident, and Stephanie tries to make off with the group's supplies and leave the pit-stop. However, she is caught by Roman and thrown into the back of a trailer. Roman requests Shel to do the job of killing Stephanie to prove her loyalty to the group. Despite Shel trying to find a loophole around the situation, Roman thinks forgiving Stephanie or letting her go will be a detriment to their group. Shel can decide to go through with shooting her friend, or refusing and making a getaway out of the pit-stop with Becca.
When Roman gives Shel the task of executing Stephanie, Shel has the option to kill her or take the keys to the RV and drive away.
Kill Stephanie (Dead)
If Shel chooses to kill Stephanie, she will tell Becca that she doesn't want her to ever have to do something like this. She then walks to the truck with Roman and executes Stephanie. Although it isn't shown, Stephanie's death is confirmed by the Video Game Statistics.
Leave In The RV (Dead)
If Shel takes the keys to the RV, she will drive out of Gil's Pitstop while Roman chases after her. It is likely that Roman killed her.
- Shel (Determinant)
After Stephanie is caught stealing supplies and attempting to escape, Shel may choose to kill her, depending on the players choice.
This list shows the victims Stephanie has killed:
- "Becca's a good kid. These are shit times and she's gonna go through that. But if we can keep her from experiencing some of the shit I've seen..."
- —Stephanie talking to Shel about Becca.[src]
Becca is good friends with Stephanie, and sets up a 'concert' for her to play the guitar. However, Becca has a hardened reaction to Stephanie's perceived betrayal of being caught running away from camp with their supplies. Becca quickly drops her own emotional attachment to Stephanie, and agrees she must die for her actions. At one point, Becca even offers to a hesitant Shel that she herself will kill Stephanie in her place. However, if Shel calls her bluff, Becca will hesitate and ultimately refuse.
- "My God. What did you do?"
- —Stephanie to Roman upon seeing Roberto tied up.[src]
Roman and Stephanie have a fairly good affiliation. He trusts her enough to work together on the hunt for the person who stole their medicine supplies. After another incident occurs in which a stranger breaks into their camp, Stephanie disagrees with Roman and strongly believes the man should be allowed to live. For Roman, the last straw is when Stephanie herself attempts to escape and make off with most of their food, ammo, and medicine, which he is unwilling to forgive her for.
- "Hey Shel, your sister's getting pretty good, huh?"
- —Stephanie complimenting Becca's guitar skills to Shel.[src]
Shel is good friends with Stephanie and enjoys her company. She is grateful to Stephanie for setting up Becca to play the guitar for everyone, which lightens the mood in their group despite the zombie outbreak. Upon learning news about Stephanie's attempted escape and being caught by Roman, Shel is devastated and must decide whether or not to kill her friend. The fact that she tried to escape from the group without even consulting Shel implies that Stephanie never really trusted her, thus evidencing the limitation of their friendship.
