But it's oh-so-fun.
Like, what if Adrock is still alive. Why? Let's say he went into hiding for two reasons. Firstly, the obvious reason, which is to hide from the military. And secondly, to protect his children, and allow them to live "normal" lives. So now that Mr. Thurston has disappeared, the military decide to cover it up by saying he is dead. Then the next logical conclusion would be that Renton's sis somehow stumbled upon their father, and they're cookin' up something nifty.
I love my far fetched speculation.
How about one involving Renton's sis? Let's say she betrayed GekkoState/Holland by joining the military in their cause. It'd explain Holland's mistrust (and constant/random beating) of Renton.
Or they could just go for the ol' daddy-is-actually-the-bad-guy thing. And then at the crucial moment, Renton would say something like he doesn't care about doing the right thing if it means letting Eureka die.
BTW, I did say speculation
. Please don't post RAW spoilers
without a warning.
Anyways, you're right... E7 is more about the drama than anything else. I just like thinking about hypotheticals.
