BelleStarr Posted May 20, 2018 Share Posted May 20, 2018 As highlighted in a section of this video, they suggest that we could find out about the Blackwater Massacre and what happened. Considering it happened in 1899, I get the feeling R* wanted to make RDR2 and include this massacre in it, whilst making RDR1. Reading the wiki, it sounds like a revolt against the police department, so possibly Dutch's gang attack the lawmen directly at some point in Blackwater? It is believed that one of Bonnie's brothers may have died during the massacre which she attributes to 'foolish choices' - was he part of a choice (likely by Dutch) to take down lawmen? Landon Ricketts is assumed to be on the side of the lawmen at the time of RDR2 and he moved to Mexico after the massacre. It was said in the paper "another piece of the Old West was lost." which suggests Landon's importance to the west, so it seems logical to have him return. We may eventually (and likely briefly) meet Heidi McCourt as she was shot by Dutch during a ferry robbery, when John was left for dead. She was mentioned in the Strange Man side quest. Not much is known about her so she provides a good character for R* to work with that previous players will have some idea of who she is. We may end up bumping into Cole McFarlane, one of Bonnie's deceased brothers, so there are a couple of names we can look out for. In this video, it is suggested that the blonde, unknown man in one of the trailers could be Cole. The story in RDR1 seems full and well rounded but as you look at each character, there are many 'unknowns' that leave a lot for R* to work with and weave into RDR2, which could lead us to learn a lot more about the characters we met and heard of. Edit: I'd also like to remind people of the Strange Man who was basically a ghost and people have referred to him as either God or Satan. I feel like he may be a man that John has met in the past, who maybe wasn't an integral part to his story but witnessed what happened in the gang or kept tabs on their activities. It would be nice to have some sort of answer to this in RDR2 somewhere. This is a cross post of my own thread made on the RDR subreddit. 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
