Daniel’s Education Explained – Life is Strange 2


Hi there, folks! It’s Lucy here from the
Square Enix Life is Strange team. Life is Strange 2 expanded on both the impact and nuances of choice and consequence after the first game. So, we wanted to deep dive on one of Life is Strange 2’s most important, but also most misinterpreted systems: How your speech and actions affect Daniel. This added insight will hopefully
guide you in making decisions as you start Life is Strange 2 for the first
time, or binge again from the beginning. We want to keep this video simple, but if you fancy a more in-depth explanation on the educating Daniel system, head over to our official blog. There will be spoilers for all episodes coming up, but we’ll cover them in chronological order with clear spoiler warnings on screen at each point, so it’s easier for you to watch the parts that you want. But first, a brief explanation before
we dive into specific examples. As you may know, choices and their consequences in Life is Strange 2 are primarily centered around Daniel, the younger brother of Sean:
the character that you play. But what we purposefully haven’t
outlined properly to-date is the depth of this ‘Educating Daniel’ system, or how it actually functions. As we want players to experience the narrative as naturally as possible. Daniel: “Right! Yes!” We’ll often see players deconstruct the outcome of a Life is Strange 2 episode using the choice and consequence
system of previous games. Like, if you chose these specific three or four options, you’ll get outcome X. Max: “Sorry Lisa… too much water.” But interpreting Life is Strange 2 in this way may lead to frustration and confusion. Daniel: “I hate this place.” You see, there are added layers of complexity when it comes to educating Daniel. Rather than relying on a one-track model where you can only teach him to be “good” or “bad”, with only major key decisions affecting him, the truth is that Daniel grows and learns from your example based on two separate values: Morality and Brotherhood. Daniel’s ‘Morality’ state determines how he acts in any given situation. Is he kind and considerate? Or is he entirely selfish, without regard for other people’s feelings or safety? Daniel: “I hate this game.” Daniels ‘Brotherhood’ state determines how he responds to what you, as Sean, teach and ask of him. Daniel: “Can I play? Please please please?” Sean: “Sure. But don’t beg!” Does he trust you to make the
right choice for the two of you? Or will he disregard what you say because you’ve been unable to bond with him? Daniel: “Sean…” “You better not steal again.” “You better not.” Here’s the thing… the choices you must
make in Life is Strange 2 are, like in other Life is Strange games and life in general, imperfect options. There’s no true ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ decision and all of them are laced with their own pros and cons. And even the sweetest-looking option could contain a sting in the tail. While some decisions may improve Daniel’s Morality, the same choices can have a negative impact on his trust in you and your Brotherhood, and vice versa. They’re also weighted differently, so
it’s not always +1 or -1 per choice. Let’s check out a quick example of this. In Episode 2 at the Reynolds’ house, Daniel will complain about having to write in his workbook. As Sean, you can either cut him some slack and allow him to stop working, gaining his trust in you, but taking
a knock to his ‘Morality’. Sean: “You don’t.” But being a responsible big brother and telling him to finish his work will provide the opposite effect. Sean: “I know it sucks, but…” “You still have to learn things.” “Or you’ll become dumb.” Daniel: “Okay…” You will have to weigh up each option for yourself and decide which outcome will be better for
your personal Diaz brothers. Major choices will have a greater impact
on Daniel’s education overall, but the lessons they teach him can still be
outweighed by the many smaller choices you may make throughout your journey, and
the examples that you set. Sean: “Dude, step back!” This is also why playthroughs can
result in different outcomes, even if you make the same major choices as your friends and other players. To date, Life is Strange 2 has
featured over 50 individual choices that have altered Daniel’s moral
compass and trust towards Sean. This is what we mean when we say “everything you do will have an impact on Daniel”. Sean: “You can do this.” “Trust me.” So now, we’re gonna delve deeper into some specific scenes from Episodes 1 to 4 that showcase how educating Daniel works. Daniel: “I’ve never seen anything like this! Never ever!” Spoilers ahead for Life is Strange 2: Episode 1. Episode 1 is packed with smaller moments that can easily be overlooked, and are vital in setting up your trust
and morality with Daniel. They may seem minor, even insignificant, but they will accumulate and web out into consequential outcomes. Sean: “Who are we fighting?” Daniel: “Orcs and Goblins tracked us down!” “Watch out!” Sean: “They can’t beat our Fellowship.” Do you steal to survive? Or do you risk you and your younger brother going hungry to set a good example? This is a vital decision to make in Episode 1. There are numerous points where you
can take what isn’t yours. Stealing the Chock-o-Crisp from the car, breaking into the parking fund box, shoplifting at the gas station. But let’s take a closer look at the latter. If you decide to use Daniel as a decoy and
use the distraction he creates to steal food, Daniel’s ‘Morality’ and ‘Brotherhood’ will take a blow. As Sean, you can steal without getting Daniel involved, but it will still negatively impact his ‘Morality’. Because, let’s face it, stealing isn’t good. Both of these options also teach Daniel that it’s okay to take what isn’t yours, a lesson that is reflected later down the line. But when you’re both starving, perhaps
this is just what it takes to survive. Sean: “Could you spare a little food or… something?” Sean: “Hey, look at that one!” It might be tempting to be a sarcastic big brother rather than a supportive one, but this will leave Daniel in a negative headspace. Daniel: “Do not feed… or disturb the animals?” “What?” “What kind of animals?” Antagonising him by claiming there are bears and wolves in the forest will freak him out and cause him to get scared. Daniel: “We shouldn’t be out here.” And he blames you when he’s having his nightmare. Daniel: “You said there are bears… and wolves!” And letting him eat bad berries, either intentionally or because you weren’t watching him closely enough, will cause him to get sick and have even more of a rubbish night. Daniel: “It hurts…” Both of these options will cause Daniel
to trust you less. Sean: “Maybe it was something you ate?” Spoilers ahead for Life is Strange 2: Episode 2. ‘Brotherhood’ and ‘Morality’ starts fluctuating with Daniel as soon as you hop into Episode 2 with the snowball training. You’ll have four methods of interacting
with the snowball, each of which will alter how Daniel perceives you. You can throw the snowball properly,
gaining Daniel’s trust. You can throw a snowball at Daniel’s head which will rightly decrease his trust in you. Throwing it at Mushroom – how dare you! Will take a knock to not only his trust
in you, but his moral compass too. Daniel: “You almost hit our dog!” “Learn how to aim!” And finally, if you’re a truly harsh big brother, throwing a snowball at Daniel and Mushroom will negatively affect both too. Sean: “Daniel…” Daniel: “That’s what you get!” “Happy?” Spoilers ahead for Life is Strange 2: Episode 3. There’s a scene in camp where Daniel is helping with the chores by doing the dishes. This is another example of apparently
inconsequential moments still shaping young Daniel’s perception of the world and his older brother. Not helping him out will result in a double ‘Brotherhood’ and ‘Morality’ drop, whereas offering help, whether he chooses
to accept it or says he can manage alone, will boost both values. Sean: “I don’t miss doing the dishes.” Daniel accepting your help is based on
your developed relationship so far. But additionally, the outcome of that scene
impacts on your relationship differently making a system that can, at times, perpetuate itself. So, your ‘Brotherhood’ being low at that point means that Daniel won’t accept your help, leading to further ‘Brotherhood’ loss. Sean: “Alright then.” Spoilers ahead for Life is Strange 2: Episode 4. Daniel is missing for the majority of Episode 4, Sean: “You lied to me. You have no leads. You have no f**king idea where my brother is.” And so your influence on him comes down to what you’ve taught him so far. There are some key points where you can affect your relationship with Daniel, and some *really* significant moments where your actions up until this point will shape the course of events to come. Namely in the scene where you reunite
and talk about Sean’s eye. Daniel: “What?” “What happened to your eye?” Even though *technically*, Sean being pierced in the eye with a shard of glass *is* the result of Daniel’s telekinesis rage, blaming your ten-year-old brother for
something he struggles to control is hardly sibling-of-the-year worthy. So, if you say that it’s his fault, of course his moral judgement and trust in you will decline. Sean: “I know…” “But I warned you.” At the fiery conclusion of Episode 4, as the church
burns down around the Diaz brothers with their mother and Lisbeth inside, the way
that Daniel behaves in the final confrontation with Lisbeth shows
perfectly how you’ve raised him to date. If Daniel’s Morality is low, he will try to hurt Lisbeth without any direction from Sean, lifting her up with his power. Daniel: “She really did try to use me!” If your Brotherhood is high enough, Sean can convince Daniel not to harm her. Daniel even says: Daniel: “Okay…” “I trust you.” Which implies that letting her go isn’t something he really wants to do, but that he will follow your judgement. If Daniel’s Morality and Brotherhood are both low, then Sean is trapped by the choice between letting Lisbeth be strangled and Daniel having her death on his conscience, or shooting Lisbeth, taking
the moral burden for himself. If Daniel’s Morality is high, he will
stand next to you and follow your lead, allowing you to resolve the situation relatively peacefully. Lisbeth: “You can still repent!” Daniel: “I don’t believe you anymore!” With the lid now lifted a little bit more on how Sean’s actions and speech affects Daniels personality, how do you think *your* Daniel will act in the climactic ending of the game? The only way to find out is to play all
the way through to the finale. Thank you for watching.

  4. StevenNite says:

    I didn’t even know you could brake into that box at the park 😆

  5. Chris Hernandez says:

    I was always wondering how you can educate Daniel throughout the episodes. It seems like no matter what decision you make, he ends up getting upset with Sean. I’m really stoked for episode 5 in 4 weeks.

  6. TheNyehingHimiko says:

    uwu what's this

  7. HiroHamada14 says:

    As far as I've seen I think I've done good in both morality and brotherhood so far. So hopefully in the end my Daniel will act hopefully well enough

  8. Darius Draguș says:

    Can't wait for the #journeysend!!

  9. Mystic_Playing says:

    Thanks for this video. Now I have a good topic to talk about in my english exam. Thank you!

  10. Professor Slim says:

    I totally forgot that the last episode drops on the 3rd next month 😅

    CAN'T WAIT

  11. SamHoby says:

    "Thats my power, not our" vs "Im not a kid anymore"
    nice educating

  12. kian 19 says:

    I hope the next life is strange becomes something like"a Heist with markiplier" where our choices drastically changes the story and where it goes rather than this

  13. Laurens programmiert says:

    Jemand von Gronkh hier?

  14. 倪传历 says:

    The ending of ep4 and the outcome stats finally had me realize how underestimated I was toward this game's choices and consequences.

    Meanwhile Aoife and Johnny are panicking somewhere…

  15. TheCanadian says:

    🙄🙄🙄

  16. Nicks Krill says:

    Русские тут ?
    Russians Here ?

  17. Marcin K says:

    Yeah, sure, he's learning all the time. Just to consequently stab you in the back anyways.

  18. Choice DK says:

    Can't wait for the last episode of this game!

  19. Life is Strange says:

    How do you think the story of the wolf brothers will end in Episode 5? Get theorising and have your say below! ⬇️

  20. Lawrence Palacios says:

    Whenever you have a younger sibling boy or girl the actions you do, they will do. They see you as a role model and with that would do anything that you've done from the past to the present.

  21. Newt Lover! says:

    +50 choices and consequences for Daniel.
    Please don't give me only 2 endings for the game.

  22. KJ says:

    I wanna play from the beginning now lol😭

  23. Dari says:

    Why she so happy

  24. Aishat X says:

    It's crazy to think how such a positive choice can affect him so negatively and vice versa

  25. Mike Canion says:

    Listen, this game is emotional and all, but when Daniel yeeted Lisbeth to the side i lost it and started laughing hysterically through my tears hahahah

  26. Егор Мир says:

    Круто! Ждём 5 эпизод)

  27. dustkeeper says:

    I've really enjoyed all the little choices and their consequences for Daniel's behavior, even though it can get stressful and confusing at times. It was a bold choice to have the character with powers be one you can't directly control, but I think it's an interesting mode of gameplay and delightfully different in its own way from season one, which was also really fun in its choice-consequence system. I hope to see a lot consequences, good or bad, played out in episode five.

  28. PurpleLulz says:

    9:11 Oh god, I could argue for years about how I disagree with that statement (respectfully), I can't believe the better answer here is literally to say "Daniel, i'm so sorry u almost killed me because u disobeyed, i'll be a better brother, please forgive me"

  29. Macacote 8 says:

    I don't want this to end😭😭😭

  30. x x says:

    Tell that Gronkh please

  31. Laur says:

    Well….time to finally preorder the physical game!

  32. XDevante says:

    Honestly thank you life is strange ♡

  33. Maeve Noor says:

    "Blaming your ten year old brother for something he struggles to control is hardly 'sibling of the year'-worthy." (result: moral loss, brotherhood loss)
    And this is where you so f***ed up, Dontnod. Seriously, it is so unfair and unrealistic.

    A normal kid would feel guilty and sad. But because the one hurt is still kind to you despite everything, it instills hope in the bond and most likely the incentive to do better next time, because now you know of the consequences. Saying "Nor your fault" or "It's the past" both lessen or even negate the impact, and what should have been a vital life lesson is relegated to a minor blip.
    This goes for any scenario where Sean was pro-heist, but it is even more significant if Sean was anti-heist AND a good brother in all previous instances.
    I personally wanted to rip little Daniel's head off for doing something so stupid and costing me an eye, despite me instinctively playing a good moral-brotherhood balance (but Daniel's choice is hard scripted, so what gives). If it was any other person, especially if it was Esteban reacting to Daniel, he would have been met with severe disappointment AT THE VERY LEAST.

    But no. We players are expected to pick a completely nonsensical choice (if we don't want the penalty) that is also incredibly weak. What amazing story-telling.

  34. rjdbah says:

    It seams like Daniel is easily influenced by the like of Finn in Ep 3 and Lisbeth in Ep 4 and what Sean teaches him it does not really matter. Sean has suffered a lot in this game mainly because of Daniel, Even the voice actor for Daniel Roman George said in an interview that while playing the game his Character was making the wrong choices, not the player choices, but the AI code itself for Daniel. Either way I have tried my level best to be the best understanding big brother for Daniel and I only hope that those choices bring about a happy ending to the wolf brothers story.

  35. AoKaga SpideyPool says:

    When I played, morality and brotherhood was high (I think so…) and I made choices that piss off Daniel about Elizabeth (when we must convince him about her), he still made the choices that when he was in low morality and brotherhood (lift her up)

  36. Đark says:

    Ooooooooook….I'm fucked

  37. João Vicente Barcellos says:

    I love Lis2 so bad! Hope they don't get Sean and Daniel killed or something! Congratulations for that amazing game!

  38. Peter Pain says:

    Can't wait for my second playthrough to produce the perfect mixture of darth vader and the antichrist }:-)

  39. Streunekatze says:

    God I love this game soooo much. Every decision I make I think about Daniel. i want to do right by him 😀

  40. Rukaルカ says:

    I didn't want to teach the little boy how to steal, cause i tought the tent will be useful. It wasn't, and Daniel saw a bad action from me/Sean :))

  41. D a n i e l o says:

    I hope none of them die 🙁

  42. Life is Strange says:

    Want to go even more in-depth about how Daniel learns from your example? Check out our blog here for everything you need to know: https://sqex.link/DanielsEducation

  43. FuzzyAziraphale says:

    I honestly have no idea how Daniel is going to turn out in my playthrough but more of my choices have probably been on the morality side of the spectrum. I'd be interested an overall rating of my morality vs brotherhood totals after episode 5. I've been wondering since episode 1 if in the worst case scenario Daniel would lose Sean and grow up to become like the Rainmaker from Looper.

  44. Blue Jay says:

    Our actions affect his “brotherhood” and “morality”? Seems like his actions are affecting a lot of player’s “brotherhood” and “morality” towards Daniel. Personally, for my playthrough, his actions in episode 1 make me think “this kid’s adorable, the little brother I never had”, in episode 2 “ok, I don’t know why people say he seems a little selfish. He seems ok to me in this episode” in episode 3 “alright Daniel, what’s up? You seem very distant, why do you seem kinda pissed off when I’m around?” in episode 4 “oh come to your senses man, you don’t belong here”, when he was offered to go embrace Karen, he says “I don’t know her” and I’m like “seriously? For the past 3 episodes, all you could talk about is wanting to see her and now that she’s right in front of you, you say no? WTF”.

    The last line she said in this video makes me think that Sean is going to get into some kind of life threatening trouble and our actions will affect Daniel’s decision to help Sean or ignore Sean. I’ve always thought that the last decision of this game will be Daniel’s and it will determine if Sean lives or dies. Basically, we’re affecting his decision through out the game. I can see it being a dramatic scene. With Daniel panicking and deeply concerned about Sean and what might happen if he doesn’t do something or, he’ll yell at Sean saying that he wishes he never had a brother and how Sean always treated him like dirt which makes Daniel not care about Sean and Sean ends up dead at the end.

  45. Bandito FGC says:

    im sorry but i cant wait for this season to end, i havent enjoyed this game at all unfortunately. i LOVE the first 2 games but i cant say the same for LIS2…

  46. Niall Jones says:

    But I tried to throw the snowball at him GENTLY 😂 And I only told him about the bears and wolves because I wanted to be realistic with him, so he'd be careful

  47. Saku Ra says:

    My two babies <3 I love Sean and Daniel so much!

  48. Leon Enciso says:

    I had already read people in other pages theorizing how Daniel's education system works, but I liked how you explain it in a more deeply and clear way.

    I cant' wait to see how all of this change Sean and Daniel's fate. So excited. ;D

  49. Nevra says:

    I hate Daniel

  50. Sabri Brahim says:

    The wolfs brothers is legend

  51. UniqueKing says:

    Episode 5 is close 😁

  52. draco morth says:

    So my Daniel have high morality and kinda high brotherhood… Interesting.
    Its hard tho, talking with him and watching what i am doing as a Sean in that kind of situation like we have in LiS 2

  53. Justin Hardy says:

    If I'm being honest, it seems like the only consequences that come with the way you "educate" Daniel has to do with a character who we'll never see again in the future (Lisbeth). I'm hoping you guys know what you're doing with the last episode, cause so far things have been very linear, since most of the consequences we get affect people who we only see for one episode and won't see again.

  54. Q GoroGasai says:

    Many of my friends complained about Daniel being a "brat". I never had that impression and after seeing this video I feel like I did a pretty good job as big brother. I love how much everything really matters. It's kinda hard to see campared to the first game but this video shows how much thought is put into it! Another reason for me to love LiS 2! <3

  55. joey13133 says:

    my morality was high enough with Danial at the end for him to follow my lead where I basically told him to toss the reverend mother to the side, mainly to hammer the point into her head that she doesn't have control over anyone, not even the impressionable 10-year old boy with telekinesis. I did everything I could to stay on Danial's good side while doing what I felt was the right thing to do in different situations, even went back to get the best outcome in Episode 2 when my save file got corrupted during episode 3's launch period (wasn't happy about that) but things might still feel rocky between Danial and Sean (who I've been calling Punished Shepard because he has an eye-patch and i swear he looks like Commander Shepard from the Mass Effect games with his head shaved) I tried to talk him and Finn out of the heist and Danial was angry, and I feel there were a couple things I probably shouldn't have said during the end confrontation in episode 4. Regardless I can't wait to see how this all ends this December.

  56. ADINOTONO says:

    Give us the fifth episode NOW!!!!!! I can't wait any longer!!!!

  57. zart3k says:

    about bears and wolves. this was todally my older brother :D. The thing is, I see Daniel and Sean like my family.

  58. JB Master says:

    Can we have a Life is Strange 3 with a own Charakter? Oder a Sequel to LiS 1?

  59. Danziii says:

    The ultimate moral and brotherly rate hit rock bottom completely if you didn't give him the choco-crisp at the start of ep1….Daniel will never forget that

  60. Giulia Semplicemente says:

    And this is the reason why I love this game so much and more than the first one

  61. kjtj397 says:

    This wasn’t very exciting season tbh 🤷‍♂️

  62. kabihasnan rocketnet says:

    This is such an amazing video, this will help me and all the players to be more wiser to our choices in this game.

  63. MultiMiguel316 says:

    That's an awesome system, Please dont stop making this games

  64. Joshua Johnstone says:

    One month to go

  65. Joshua Johnstone says:

    I never forget anything for wolves brothers

  66. Benny! says:

    Soooooooooooo even though I didn't want to, I spared Lisbeth. Does that make me a good older virtual brother or what?

  67. Bailey Lee says:

    THESE ARE THINGS I HAVENT EVEN SEEN! WOAHHHHHH

  68. stitchfan08 says:

    I been helping Daniel doing good but i did end up teaching him to steal and swear i did make most choices to help him be a good kid

  69. QueenInTheNorth says:

    I've noticed a lot of the little ways your actions impact Daniel, and it's really interesting. I'm very excited to see how it all ends!

  70. Kingsley Mak says:

    To be honest, no matter Daniel was raised to be good or not…… if the choice of ending is to decide whether I should kill Daniel when he is out of control…….. I will execute him instantly.

  71. Josh Spicer says:

    This season isn't that good to be honest. The original had that nice combination of interesting gameplay, good story, well written dialogue, and enough originality to keep people hooked.

    Maybe since we're playing as Sean and not the person with the powers, the whole thing just feels…I dunno, off.

    Side Note: Why we throw Lyla away?

  72. Jay M says:

    Actually, he's an asshole regardless of your choices.

  73. Justin gay says:

    well for me Daniel still a dumbass in all options

  74. Rizaveph says:

    Aw, and when he refused to help me with carrying the water (giving him an opportunity to flex his powers) so he could wash dishes I was proud of him for being so responsible. Now I know that just sunk my brother points, no wonder he didn't wolf howl with me.

  75. Baby Clementine Marsh says:

    am I the only one who was like "watching call me kevin play this will be fun now" Since he always does the bad things and it "kinda" matters more then in the telltale games!

  76. Cliff Porter says:

    I really wish you were able to add more save file states in both LIS2 and Captain Spirit. Playing different scenarios is fun but I would like to have more than the 5. Plus with CS, there is no more than the single save file so if I want a slightly different Chris I have to play again ahead of time rather than picking the one I want to import. It would be cool once the final release is complete if these features could be added.

  77. Salvare says:

    I can't wait for eps 5 and upload the gameplay. Ready for the mosh pit shaka brah

  78. Name ls Mxllys says:

    Daniel: I DONT BELIEVE YOU ANYMORE!
    That church girl that tried to block your way: yeet

  79. gunnar12121 says:

    It's funny how paying attention to how people act around me can influence my choices for Sean and Daniel. I've met peope I really don't want to become like, so I try to teach Daniel both a lot of morality and brotherhood, because I know I needed that a lot in my life when I was about Daniel's age. I hope episode 5 goes well with what I've taught him. Either way, I can't wait to play!

  80. T.I. Tube says:

    please create and the life is strange 3 with 5 episodes please i love your game .Thanks You!

  81. Timur Finsky says:

    Я так понимаю, будет 3 или 4 концовки, в зависимости от шкал морали и братства, и именно Дэниэл будет выбирать кем жертвовать, а не игрок (Шон), и получить приятную концовку можно будет только если обе шкалы находятся выше среднего, имхо. Скажем так, в отличии от первой LiS, концовка выбирается на протяжении всей игры, а не в последний момент.

  82. Michael Dekker says:

    Well i will burn in hell. My Daniel has a low morality and a low brotherhood as i can tell what happened with Lisbeth…

    I am scared but i will do my very best to get a relativly good ending

  83. Scorlex says:

    I get how negative actions and decisions influence Daniel in a negative way. But I still don't understand how positive actions work. When I always teach him that his power must be kept secret, why does he still reveal his powers to the church people? I always try to be the best big brother and show him that he can trust me. It's just us two, the two wolf brothers. And he still sides with Fynn. It just feels like he forgets every positive decision I make and every negative makes it ten times worse.
    In LiS1 everything made sense. The player makes a bad decision -> live with the consequences. The drama didn't feel "fake" or "designed". It felt real. But in LiS2 Daniel just keeps on breaking Sean's heart over and over again. Sean tries to be the best brother he can possibly be and you can see the minor changes in his behavior. You give him a dollar for the slot machine and he is so grateful. You steal something from the shop and he doesn't like it at all. But at the end of an episode he just doesn't give a damn about what happened before. He will always do certain things, which I honestly don't like at all.
    My morality and brotherhood is high (atleast that's what is being said in the video) and still Daniel chooses to do "wrong". Even the best possible outcome is not satisfying. Sean is always the bad guy that didn't look out for his brother. The balancing between "good" and "bad" desicions feels off compared to LiS1. There was this moment in the church when he told me something like "This is my life now" which implied that I should leave. I tried so hard and gave it my everything the whole game… Just for this? I hated this guy so much 😀

  84. Mooncinder says:

    Just want to say I really enjoy these videos. Can't wait for episode 5! I've tried to be a good big brother so I'm hoping Daniel will be good in my playthrough.

  85. Bugaboy says:

    AHHHH IN SO HYPED THE EPISODE 5 COMES OUT ON MY BIRTHDAYYYY GONNA BE A EMOTIONAL BIRTHDAY BUT GOSH I WILL MISS LIS2 SO MUCH THANK YOU LIFE IS STRANGE TEAM FOR THESE GAMES IT ALWAYS MADE MY DAYS

  86. Jongkeyone says:

    Hopefully my Sean thinking with his ** rather than his head by going after Finn won't negatively affect him too much 😂

  87. Andi permana says:

    Screw daniel

  88. Filippa says:

    my Daniel didn’t even attack my Lisbeth i just asked him to move her out of the way, and he did. everyone made it out alive. i think it was the best outcome.

    Well. In my game, Daniel’s brotherhood is high, and morality is low. Imma try to get them both high so I don’t get screwed. Some other guy said that the last decision might me Daniel’s, and he chooses if you live or die. In my game I think Sean would be good if it was Daniel’s choice. Because even though I’ve done bad stuff, Daniel is still loyal. So, if his morality is low, he’ll be like “ha you did some really bad stuff but I like you so idc”

    Hey, Life is Strange, why do you spoil Daniel between episodes!?

  92. SeeTv says:

    I honestly hope that episode 5 will have a bad ending. This is what I liked about the first game.

  93. Sniperzduty says:

    I loved how it went in depth with Daniel, I can’t wait for the 5 episode

    Ummmmm. What's the point in "educating Daniel" when he's just going to do what he wants to do? @ 9:11 , dang right it's his fault. He set everything off into motion. Causing Sean to get seriously hurt, losing his vision in one eye and in a coma for 2 months! He clearly disobeys every and anything Sean teaches him. Even if it's a positive choice. For example,

    1. Taking Mushroom from the gas station
    2. Not wanting to do chores
    3. Visiting the Eriksons (when strictly told to not leave the house)/going to the Christmas market
    4. Making Chris think he's the one who has the power (and then lying to him about it causing him to get hurt)
    5. Going in Karen's childhood bedroom
    6. Going into Sean's bedroom
    7. Showing off in front of Finn
    8. Being a brat and came inside Merrill after distinctively told by Sean to wait outside (causing three more people to know he has powers)
    9. Agreeing to the robbery (where he said himself "I can do what I want"- severely injuring Sean, Cass, Finn or Big Joe and Merrill)
    10. Taking up for Lisbeth when Sean literally went through hell to get to him
    11. Seeing Sean almost get beat to death and that's still not enough to convince him

    & that's just a few.

    He is so much like Karen. He's reckless, spoiled, careless and doesn't realize the pain that he's causing to his loved ones. I swear if there is a choice of sacrificing him in ep. 5 then I'm all for that.

    Honestly, I don't understand why this mechanic confused a lot of people, at least I didn't, until I watched JackSepticEye playing it… Like, how many bad decisions can you make in one episode and then be clueless about the results?

  96. Ethan Johnson says:

    Sacrifice Daniel or sacrifice mexico
    Please dont make again only two endings.

  97. RA si hyun says:

    that day. i'll be definedly buying it all of Episode. im seriously.

  98. Marcos Valverde says:

    LiS2 Episode 5: Sean and Daniel meet with Trump.

  99. Dan thefan says:

    Im starting to think just straight up shooting church lady without hesitation might have not been the best option regarding Daniel's morality lol..
