twdg au [x] where Lee was never bitten but was badly injured after rescuing an unconscious Clementine from the Marsh House. While trying to escape Savannah with Omid and Christa, they became trapped in the horde. Seeing no other way out Lee decided to lure the walkers away so Omid and Christa could escape and carry Clementine to safety. They tried to wait for him in the outskirts of the city, but with the whole place completely overrun and more walkers showing up they had to eventually move on and presumed him dead. After spending a few days trapped in the city, Lee finally escaped and met up with another group of survivors who patched him up and told him about Wellington. Knowing it might be his only chance to find Clementine and the others he decided to join them and head north.
