Spoilers for Resident Evil Village
Listen. I understand that I have to turn my brain off when it comes to some of the things that go on in Resident Evil Village. I have accepted that Ethan Winters is a man who has agreed with the fact that he can fasten his hand again with water and a prayer. I have even accepted the moments where he decides to stay around and talk to his opponents instead of grabbing the container̵
That’s one thing I can only doNOT come over now that my wife and i have beaten this game.
Why didn ‘t you just talk to Ethan in the first place ?!
Now I see from a storytelling perspective that you want there to be some mystery. Hair Mia hit you again? Is that why does Chris and his men just unload an entire castle of Dimitrescu’s ammunition in her body? Ethan is understandably desperate, but instead of explaining the situation, Chris takes Rose, knocks Ethan out, and makes plans to transport them away from his father.
Of course, this does not go the way he wants, and Ethan is left to fend for himself when he tries to understand what Chris would do something like that. Ethan has no reason to believe that Chris would turn on his family in such a way, after all, Chris is the one who helped them get away from the Bakery House at the end of Resident Evil 7. According to this game, he is also the one who got them placed in his new home and … gave them military training, I guess?
We find out later that it was not Mia who was murdered in front of Ethan, but Miranda (the game’s most important villain) posed as her. That’s why Chris turned her body into Swiss cheese, as they say.
You may be wondering when Chris told Ethan this, and the answer is … near the end of the game.
To make sure Ethan was not involved.
“I guess I owe you an explanation.”
DO YOU THINK?!
Here are my questions, Mr. Redfield.
One: How did you think the murder of Mia in front of Ethan and the kidnapping of his daughter would prevent him from getting involved? Although the danger level in this game is astronomically high, I can not think of anyone who would just accept what happened without any explanation. Furthermore, Ethan Winters went through literally mold-infected hell Resident Evil 7 for the sake of his wife (who went on a murderous violence against him – not her fault, but still), what makes you think he should sit back and accept some of this unless you talk to him ?!
Two: If you really do not want Ethan involved, why did he get military training? Military training for what? In case something showed up in their new home?
Three: Why in the world would you respond to Ethan’s legitimate inquiries with irritation? How do you have the courage to get annoyed when he shows up to try to save what he thinks is the only family he has left? “Do you think I killed Mia?” Chris asks this question when you finally get a chance to talk to him, uninterrupted.
Did you forget that you have not told Ethan anything until now? What else should he think?
Four: I see it’s not just Ethan you ‘re not talking to because you did not exactly tell Mia that her husband stayed behind to save everyone. after the giant explosion in the village. I understand. It’s devastating news to deliver. But why are you letting this woman panic over her husband’s fate?
Basically, this whole game could have been solved with communication. We know that Chris and Ethan are still in touch. Couldn’t Chris think of a better way to notify Ethan of what’s going on?
Let’s say he could not. Let’s say Miranda should (try) to kill Ethan and take Rose that night, so Chris has no choice but to go after her.
Well … why not tell Ethan after that?
Why was “grab the baby and knock him out” your plan, sir ?!
I know, video games need video games so that stone-holed asshole must be tight around everything until the last possible second.
I’m just saying, this would at least have been a lot less messy if Chris had sent an email.
