From this viewpoint, by not taking matters into his own hands, George could have vindicated himself of blame. Instead, he would now have to go the rest of his life knowing he ultimately was the one who ended Lennie’s life. While it is true that he would not have been responsible, it is critical to understand that George was not so much concerned with how others might perceive him after the killing as he was concerned with the Lennie’s comfort in his moments before dying.

This foreshadows Lennie’s death when he is shot right in the back of the head by George, who really does not want to because George has been beside Lennie for so long and how innocent and benevolent Lennie had been. Another example is Lennie disobeying orders by George to avoid contact with puppies and
