Did I miss something or was there not a clip to show what happens in the last episode?

I always turn off the TV when that part comes up, I prefer to go in blind.

Yeah, I was waiting for that clip but there was none this time. I suppose it's for the best.

There wasn't one. Guess they didn't want to potentially show any spoilers for the final episode or something.

I was still crying at the end for me not to notice.

I think its possibly because there are very distinctly different ways the end plays out that it would not be possible to show a general "Next Time" because of the different continuity between players caused by personal in game decisons.

It's probably because of how far behind schedule they have been throughout this entire project.

@WMoyer83: I'm pretty certain the Next Time Ons were always generated with your decisions. They weren't pre-rendered.

I'm pretty bummed that the next episode, is the last episode. The Walking Dead has been my favorite game this year.

Here's the script version:

Announcer: "Next time, on The Walking Dead."

Lee, shouting: "Clementine!"

"Clementine?"

"CLEEEMMM!"

"Clementine..."

"Clem!"

They'll be done before the end of the year because they want that all-in-one pack out for Christmas, I'm sure. But yeah, the impact of the last few minutes hit me and I totally didn't realize that there was no episode preview.

I waited for the end of the credits for the next on but nothing came. Not surprising really considering Lee could have a posse or be on his own.

I was also a bit bummed that they didn't play out the last choice to the guy on the walkie talkie. I was waiting for lee to go crazy at him (I was pumped up with zombie venom and missing Clem rage so chose the you're dead option) but it cuts out before he kicks off.

I have a feeling that because of the different options for who goes with you at the end of Episode 4, there may just be too many variations for episode 5 to work out and they're just not there yet in the development.

I think there was no "next time on" because of dramatic tension, plain and simple.

To show a highlight reel of what's to come would defuse the tension of the last moment of chapter 4, I think.

This. There's also a reason they didn't show what you chose to say either.

I usually do this, but one thing I've noticed with the game is the "next time on" isn't all that spoilery or even that accurate. It just shows vague refenrences to the situations you'll be in.

Just finished up ep.4 yesterday, wish there was a next time, but it makes me want ep 5 even more.
