I was just wondering what players thought of the ending of episode 3. I personally enjoyed this episode. The ending was a bit confusing for me because Sarah claims that Lord Mortimer is a demon who can see through eyes of other people which is also something Louis can do. Does that mean Louis is a demon as well? Or does that mean we are the demon that has gained control of Louis?
I keep thinking back to the very first choice we made. Do we trust Sarah, or not? It strikes me as strange that someone who has harped on to Louis about keeping logical and open would latch onto the idea that Mortimer is a demon, rather than explore other possibilities. We've been inundated since the start with peculiarities that may, or may not (in the case of red herrings) be clues as to what's going on.
It's all too easy to pass off the things we don't understand as being magical, or having particular religious significance. Many occurances that were deemed magical in the past are now easily explained by science. Science is Mortimer's immunity, so I'd imagine it's safe to say he knows his stuff. Sarah makes no bones about the fact he is more knowledgeable than she is, so it's very possible that what she perceives as demonic possession, given a little more knowledge, might be viewed as something else entirely.
Sarah also gave us an indication that she believes Louis' 'power' is still in its infancy, that it has not fully matured yet. We also found out that she's been giving him a concoction that limits his power. I can't help but wonder if there's a familial relation between Mortimer and Louis, given that Louis exhibits the same power that Sarah believes Mortimer to have. And then there's the kidnap of Mortimer's son. And the sheer amount of books such as the Chronicles of Amber, Al Asif, even the book in the libary she forbade Louis to read which just happens to be ridiculously anachronistic also, that point towards the ability to 'travel' in space and time. Maybe we're looking at the links of chains which will come together to form two very different narrative conclusions depending on which iteration of Louis we've leant towards.
