So… Having completed the game a few things hang in the air.
Now these could well be you know hints that the whole world is in a… (not sure how to spoiler text?)
Now no matter what someone did kill Boris.
Who do you think done it? My pick would be Ransome because on the bench at the bus station it says ‘eats tuna’, up the path from the murder location there is a can of tuna heads.
Ransome also reminds me of a evil clown something akin to that one out of ‘IT’ that hovers round the sewers.
Now, we know that Ray and Reyes didn’t do it because we have seen what their motivations were. They were explicitly underlined by the calls they received.
I don’t actually think Sheriff-Coroner-HotelManager did it. He had plenty of opportunities to knock off Ray and Reyes and he didn’t as well as Delores and the Clown for that matter. I think he couldn’t murder anyone.
After the call he gets from his ‘boss’, he does agree with violent action but we never see him do anything remotely violent. He’s no Fester Shinetop!!
He might be actively trying to disrupt the AI. It might have been a call from Real Chuck, stuck in the machine telling him what to do. Destroy the cameras say? I don’t think real Chuck was evil either so that would make sense if before he got amalgamated with the machines he had respected Chuck. He says in his diary he got rid of Sheriff and Coroner I think? But could have just moved them on and put his man in place keeping his eyes out for Chuck.
He is watching . At one point he shiftily lurks by the door but I don’t think he has nefarious intentions at all. He might not have been talking about people at all but something else perhaps? The machines, the cameras.
