Questions for Inquisitve Minds [With the Second Biggest Spoiler I've Ever Seen]

posted by Silverwolfpet on - last edited - Viewed by 1.3K users

Oookay, finished the game (actually, I got the Press Release some time ago, now I'll just play the Final Version tonight...). SPOILERS!!! (just in case you missed that)

I know how it ends! Brilliant work, awesome ending... although, I still have some questions and I'd like to debate them with you guys.

1. How and Why din Guybrush get his hand back (notice the missing ring)

2. Why does Guybrush's Poxed hand STILL exists and has been taken by the Voodoo Lady? (you can notice that on her table in the last cutscene)

3. What happened to LeChuck? It just faded to white... did he implode? Explode? Desintegrate?

4. Why is Elaine wearing at the end the same clothes she was wearing when she became the undead bride?

5. So, LeChuck was the actual Pirate God or not? And Nor Treblig was Galeb, right? I'm confused... Symbolism is right up my alley, but this is a bit confusing!

Debate away, I'll join later on :)

  • 1. I'm guessing it grew back when the rest of his rotting body regenerated when he left the land of the dead.

    2. See above, and also I'm guessing she's got her uses for it.

    3. He's in a jar, isn't he? So he liquefied, I guess.

    4. Didn't have time to change before Guybrush got back?

    5. I'm guessing LeChuck is the pirate god, Galeb was just a guy wandering around the crossroads because he's just too weird in the head to identify what it is he needs to do to move on, and Nor Treblig is either the boat man or the boat man's boss.

  • No idea to any other them.
    But to add to the list,
    - Where did Murray go? last we saw he was in a chest in the manatee mating ground.
    - Why did lechuck need to hypnotize some monkeys?
    - What was the point of the Rock of Gelato?
    - What happened to Franklin!?

    Not sure if that was the intention, but I love the idea.

    Two very good points!

    He vanished, just like he always does. He gets around quite a bit for a skull with no ability to move on his own.

    - Why did lechuck need to hypnotize some monkeys?
    - What was the point of the Rock of Gelato?

    That was part of his own plan to open the crossroads. Having the monkeys of Montevideo in just the right locations in the land of the living (including but not limited to the living equivalents of the center of the crossroads, treasure hunt, swordfight, and gateway) was supposed to allow him to break back into the crossroads from the living side. It just so happened that just as his plan failed, Guybrush did it for him. The Rock of Gelato may or may not have been a location significant to the monkey hypnotizing ritual.

    - What happened to Franklin!?

    POOF!

    Now, I have a question. If Jacques the monkey was on Flotsam when Guybrush and LeChuck were at the Rock of Gelato, and LeChuck had captured all of the monkeys of Montevideo and had them on his ship for hypnotizing, how is it that Jacques is now one of the hypnotized monkeys opening rifts?

  • @Radogol said: Not sure if that was the intention, but I love the idea.

    If you keep asking him his name, one of the names he'll tell you is Nor Treblig. I am asuming he is indeed the "keeper of the crossroads".

  • more things to try and answer :)
    - why did lechuck randomly appear in club 41 just to kick us out once?
    - why does grindstump tell us its one of the only safe places if lechuck can appear there?
    - Why does is there never any mention of monkey island or anything to do with it, including herman toothrot?
    - Why do we come back as a ghost upon being sprayed with root beer, when lechuck properly died?
    - Where did Morgans body go!?

  • @Dinghy Dog said: - Why do we come back as a ghost upon being sprayed with root beer, when lechuck properly died?

    I guess LeChuck too was simply banished back to the crossroads when Guybrush sprayed him with rootbeer in SMI, but without the ritual with the sponge and the hypnotized monkeys on the other side, there was nothing keeping the gateway open, and he was trapped there until Largo brought him back to his rotting corpse in MI2.

    - why did lechuck randomly appear in club 41 just to kick us out once?

    Once? After Guybrush was back in his body, he did it to me every time I approached the rip inside Club 41

    - why does grindstump tell us its one of the only safe places if lechuck can appear there?

    Shh!

    - Why does is there never any mention of monkey island or anything to do with it, including herman toothrot?

    Who says there needs to be?

    - Why do we come back as a ghost upon being sprayed with root beer, when lechuck properly died?

    What Bagge said.

    - Where did Morgans body go!?

    That's what I wanted to know! My best guess is that we're supposed to think that the Voodoo Lady somehow did it, but that's got its own share of problems associated with it. It's too bad, I was really hoping to see her return to flesh by the end. At least she's in the land of the living, so that's better than nothing, I guess.
