Blame Chloe or take the blame in Life is Strange: Choice Consequences

The choice to blame Chloe or take the blame during the first episode of Life is Strange can change the story a lot. This guide will give a general overview of what’s going on, followed by a spoiler break down for those who want to know the exact details of the plot.

Attention! There may be spoilers ahead!

Aftermath of Chloe’s accusation in Life is Strange

If the players decide to accuse Chloe of eating weed in Life is Strange, David will hit her and Chloe will be very upset with Max. Chloe’s accusation also makes it impossible for the couple to fall in love with each other during the course of the story. However, this means that it’s impossible to get into trouble making a big decision at the end of the second episode, no matter what decision Max made about denouncing Nathan.

The biggest consequences of blaming Chloe in Life is Strange are:

  • Chloe will not show Max the gun she took from David and will be upset at the lighthouse at the end of Episode 1 in Life is Strange;
  • Max cannot be suspended from the game at the end of Episode 2, no matter what other decisions have been made;
  • Chloe’s phone background will never change to Max, and they won’t be able to fall in love with each other or kiss at the end of the game, no matter what other decisions are made;
  • Chloe’s mom and David will talk about the grass that belongs to Chloe again.

Consequences of taking the blame in Life is Strange

Taking the blame for Chloe’s weed means that David will yell at Max and threaten her position at Blackwell Academy, but Chloe will defend Max and be very happy that Max took the blame. If Max makes two more big decisions about Chloe over the next few episodes, players can also choose to have the couple fall in love by the end of the game.

However, at the end of the second episode of Life is Strange, it becomes harder for Max to stay out of trouble. Reporting on Nathan and then blaming him at the end of the episode, or taking a picture of David and then blaming him are the only ways to get her out of her predicament.

The biggest consequences of the decision in Life is Strange to take the blame for Chloe’s weed:

  • Chloe still won’t show Max the gun she took from David, but will be happy at the lighthouse at the end of the first episode;
  • Max will be suspended if she accuses David of being responsible for Kate’s suicide attempt without a photo of their confrontation;
  • Max will also be suspended if she blames Nathan without reporting him to the principal;
  • Chloe’s phone background can change to Max and they can fall in love and kiss at the end of the game, provided that two other key choices are made;
  • Max’s weed is brought in by Chloe’s mom and again by David.

Should I take the blame or blame Chloe?

This is one of the most important choices in Life is Strange if players care about Max and Chloe’s friendship and potentially romantic relationship. The spoiler sections above cover all the implications of this decision, but in short, if the players want the duo to love each other, they must take the blame for Chloe’s weed.

If players just want to ensure that Max doesn’t get into trouble later in the story, then they should choose Chloe’s fault. Their relationship really matters in a video game, so it’s worth considering the consequences of such a decision.

However, there are no right or wrong answers in the game, so feel free to shape Max’s story in Life is Strange as you see fit as players decide whether to blame Chloe for the weed or take the blame in Episode 1.
