Episode 04: Amid The Ruins - The Official Walking Dead Game Wiki Guide - IGN (2023)

The following guide content contains spoilers for Episode 03 and Episode 04 of Season 2 of The Walking Dead.

Chapter 01: Escape the Herd


Picking up where Episode 03: In Harm's Way left off, Clementine must escape the herd of walkers attacking Carver's compound. Depending on the player's choice, Sarita has either been bitten and attacked by zombies, or had an emergency amputation performed by Clementine. Kenny rushes to her aid, only to have her die in his arms.

NOTE: Regardless of whether or not Clementine hacked off Sarita's arm, Kenny will be upset with her for either acting impulsively or not doing enough to help.

Complete the QTE promts to escape the next wave of zombie attacks, then reunite with Rebecca and Jane to escape the herd.

Chapter 02: The Meeting Place

This chapter is mostly comprised of dialogue choices and interactions with the remaining members of Clementine's group. Regarless of their choices, Kenny will remain despondent and Rebecca will remain pregnant. Follow Jane in search of Luke, Nick and Sarah to complete the chapter.

Chapter 03: Lessons

Exit the forest with Jane, and search the two fresh walkers that she points out.

EXTRA ITEM: In the back-left pocket of the dead-again walker, Clementine can find two bullets that she'll add to her inventory. Whether or not they could have a bearing on future events remains to be seen.

After some conversation, help Jane roll over the other walker and find Sarah's Glasses. Continue along to come to a hole in the fence where you will find what used to be Nick. Put him to rest with your hatchet and get a new weapon from Jane - the screwdriver.

When you reach the other side of the trailer, move quietly to hide behind the pickup truck, then dispatch the walkers with your new kneecapping moves.

To successfully lure the pack of zombies away from the trailer where Luke and Sarah are hiding, drag the walker corpse over from where it lies and lay it onto the horn of the truck then head inside the trailer.

Complete the QTE's to take down the walker, then follow Jane to the other trailer - you have the option to yell through the door, but ultimately you'll end up needing to kick it in.

Chapter 04: Trapped


Once inside the trailer, take a brief moment to reunite with Luke and a catatonic Sarah. Discuss the merits and morals of possibly leaving someone behind, then start panicking as the walkers begin to break inside.

When looking for something to access the skylight with, go straight for the bureau blocking the door. The milk crate is too short, and the fridge is too heavy to move, so suggest the bureau and help Luke push it into the bedroom.

Decision: Rescue Sarah or Leave Her Behind?

Time is running out, and you need to make the decision whether or not taking the time to convince Sarah to leave with you is worth risking a surefire escape. If the player can live with their decision to let a young girl get sacrificed to the living dead, they are more than welcome to do so.

The Outcome: Sarah is dead either way. No one at camp is particularly upset with Clementine, should she decide to leave Sarah at the trailer park - and, even if she does make it back, she'll end up perishing during a walker attack in Chapter 08.

Chapter 05: Reunited

Upon returning to camp, talk to everyone and then perform a brief QTE to enter the tent that Kenny's taken refuge in. Convince him to swallow his grief and agree to help Rebecca with the baby.

When everyone starts to split up, offer to go after Jane, stay and help Sarah or follow Bonnie and Mike - whichever you choose, you'll end up following after Jane.

After talking to Jane, head up to the observation platform. While she works on unlocking the gift shop, walk to and use the telescope that is closest to the camera (by the stairs you came up). After spying the nearby town, notice the stranger heading up the stairs towards the platform.

Tough Decision: Steal From Arvo?

You have the option to steal some medicine from Arvo's bag (Jane will take the other items if you don't), or to let him leave peacefully. The medicine is somewhat inconsequential to this episode's story, so it really boils down to whether or not you choose to be cruel to this new character (who will return in the next episode).

Return to Kenny and Rebecca at the meeting place to finish the chapter and head after Mike and Bonnie.


When you reach Mike and Bonnie at the museum, grab the jacket at the far end of the central display and talk to Bonnie about it. Once Mike comes over, head over to the office door and try to open it. When that doesn't work, try and raise the shutter after moving the box in front of it.

Decision: Crawl Under the Shutter?

Again, a fairly arbitrary decision that has no real impact on the story. If Clementine crawls under, she gets stuck and Mike kicks down the door to kill the walker that attacks. If Bonnie reaches her arm through, she gets knocked on the head while trying to pull away and Mike still wrestles the walker away.

Return to camp with Mike, Bonnie and the water you found to finish the chapter.

Chapter 07: Labor

This chapter is woefully short and consists of two dialogue interchanges before a herd of walkers shows up. Tell mike to get the water and head for the observation deck with everyone else.

Chapter 08: Hit the Deck

Once everyone is gathered in the gift shop on the observtation deck, decide how you want to help the group. Staying with Kenny and Rebecca means giving an inspiration speech to a woman in labor, while going out to the deck means getting to shoot zombies with a handgun.

When prompted to find something to barricade the gate with, run to the cannon and begin to move it towards the door. Unable to support the weight of the military relic, the dec will collapse - rescue Jane (or try to save Sarah) before continuing.

NOTE: As previously mentioned, Sarah will not live through this segment. If you decided to rescue her from the trailer park, here she becomes trapped underneath the wreckage of the platform. You have the option to send Jane down to attempt a rescue, but she will fail and Sarah will still die at the hands of the walkers.

Drop the rest of the decking onto the horde by climbing on Mikes shoulders and using your hatchet on the support plate above the railing (stomping on the deck and trying to cut the cable will only waste time). When the dust settles head back inside to the gift shop to end the chapter.

Chapter 09: Family Plans

(Video) The Walking Dead Season 02 Walkthrough - Episode 04: Amid the Ruins ENDING

Talk to Rebecca about the baby.

Decision: Hold Baby?


Why this is a "tough decision" is beyond us, but choose whether or not to hold Rebecca's baby

Head out of the shop and talk to Jane, and then side with Kenny or Luke during the argument following her departure.

Try to keep everyone calm on the long trip, and hope Arvo isn't still mad if you stole his medicine bag.

Decision: Shoot Rebecca?

This decision is, again, arbitrary - the outcome of an assumed gunfight is the same either way.
