Title: Valanice Writing Graham's Name
Post by: fluxmaster on September 30, 2011, 11:56:09 AM
I've just noticed something new while playing the tower sequence in Episode 3.  I'm not sure whether this has been discussed before.  I looked through some earlier thread but couldn't find it, but if it has been discussed already, could you please direct me to the appropriate thread.

When I started playing TSL I was using an older monitor that was somewhat dark.  When I got to the part in the tower sequence where Graham enters the wagon, it was too dark to see anything, so I couldn't proceed any further.  I watched the Youtube video of the remainder of the tower sequence and downloaded the saved game from after the tower sequence so that I could finish playing the episode.  However, I've recently switched to a new monitor, which is bright, so that I can see inside the wagon.  I was able to complete the second half of the tower sequence using the new monitor and noticed a couple of new details that I hadn't noticed before, or at least hadn't much thought about before.

When Graham encounters Valanice in the tower, it is the older Valanice, so I assume that it is merely Valanice's dream (or nightmare) about being locked in the tower.  But afterward, there is a scene where the younger Valanice is being taken to the tower, and she writes Graham's name on the window of the wagon.  Since this is the younger Valanice, I assume this is what actually happened when she was taken to the tower many years ago.

My question is this:  Did Valanice actually know that Graham was the name of the man who would rescue her, and, if so, how?  Or are we to interpret the whole thing as a dream and nothing more?

A certain conversation in episode 4 raises some doubts as to Graham's involvement with the Black cloak Society...

If by doubts, you mean verification? Shadrack specifically speaks as if he has long known and previously met Graham.
