Almost Everything About Amelie
Death Stranding dropped the ball on us with Amelie.
We know that Amelie is an Extinction Entity, someone meant to bring about a seemingly routine extinction of the current dominant species. We also know that her body and soul were literally and permanently split in half in her 20s with Amelie residing on the Beach and Bridget being in the physical world.
It’s weird how literally no one questioned that Bridget suddenly had a random daughter no one had ever seen before, that no one also continued to not see for the next few years. They simply just believed she existed.
And wouldn’t Bridget and Amelie have looked exactly the same? Amelie wasn’t always wearing Die-Hardman’s mask before she and Bridget split so wouldn’t pictures of Bridget’s “daughter” Amelie look a little too much like Bridget herself?
Also, why would Amelie want to reconnect America when she knew the sixth extinction was going to happen and that she was personally accelerating the process in the first place?
She even says that making the sixth extinction come sooner would be a mercy for humanity. Then, why didn’t she do it sooner?
Amelie was also “trapped” on the west coast and captured by some unknown people but, since we know she doesn’t have a physical body, nothing was particularly keeping her on that side of the U.S. other than her manipulation of Sam.
That also means they didn’t need to have that weird beach running scene near the end of the game.
Frankly, I have a lot more questions about Amelie but I’ll cut it here to keep from turning into an essay.
