    Who really cares anyway? Whether it's indoctrination or just a dream, it's a great piece to the storytelling. It shows Shepard, despite being saviour of the citadel, scourge of the Reapers and annihilator of the Collectors, is still just Human.

    Seeing the things he's seen would haunt anyone, and I for one really liked that scene.
    "Remember the good old days when you could just slap Omni-Gel on everything?" - Shepard, ME2

    "Not right now. Trying to determine how Scale Itch got aboard. Sexually transmitted disease carried only by Varren..... Implications unpleasant." - Mordin, ME2

    Well not everyone eats glass for breakfast, tosses babies into wood chippers and uses little old ladies for bowling pins.

    Not that I disagree with your opinion, because it does sound plausible. However, in the previous spoiler thread, you insisted that EDI as a squad-mate was only a rumor, and not based in fact. When it had been said she would be.

    So forgive me if I take your "inside" knowledge with a grain of salt.

    While it is possible that the boy was always just a figment of Shep's imagination. (Alone playing near Alliance HQ, No one helps him up to the shuttle. (However the soldier does not signal the go command until AFTER the kid is on.)

    Anderson did not hear/notice Shepard talking to the little boy in the air conduct. So who knows, maybe you're right. However, I don't see how Shepard became indoctrinated to begin with. He's never been on a reaper ship, he was close to one in the derelict reaper in me2, but was only for a short while and his companions showed no traces. Wasn't in the attack, and if the boy WAS a symptom of indoctrination then it happened pre-earth attack, so that kinda doesn't make sense.


    In any case, I insist the boy was simply something Shepard's brain created to manifest the entity.

    [Edited by Lizml86, 3/9/2012 7:19:04 PM]

    EDI was only meant to be used for Cerberus missions, they brought in voice actors again about 2 months before the final pressing of the media, this was not known. Obviously they had changed plans enough that they needed more speech to cover stuff.

    Ashley/Kaiden was meant to be the full time squad member, but that changed also in favour of EDI.

    Massive Spoiler needed here :P

    Spoiler:

    Also Eva was never meant to be in the game and EDI's body was made by EDI herself, no EVA but who was to be the one with the goodies at Mars? Was to be the Illusive Man (or Jack Harper which is his real name) hence why he could talk to you there. You would find out about Eva later when you discovered that she was a team mate back in the Turian war when himself and Eva along with Bill where a covert group.

    Now here is where it gets interesting, The Illusive Man (I shall call TIM from now) was himself indoctrinated back in the Turian War. His group found a reaper artifact on Shanxi which a Turian named Desolas was looking for and the reason why they attacked humans mostly.

    Bill his friend went up to the artifact and was electrocuted and died on the spot, but TIM tried to grab him off and he was partially electrocuted... to make a long story short, TIM started to show signs of indoctrination through his eyes and other parts of his body (becoming machine). He met Bill later who became a Husk, as the story goes TIM killed Desolas who was Saren's brother and the reason why Saren hated humans so much.

    Now with TIM bringing back Shepard he no doubt used his own experiences with his own indoctrination and the knowledge he gained to rebuild Shepard (did you think those funky bright scars where normal? Of course not it was the results of nano machines in his body. Hence why when you go full renegade his eyes etc all become closer to indoctrination themselves).

    Since then with the reapers invading he has been in tune with them, which is why Javik can sense it and won't touch Shepard initially.

    The reason why the Citadel entity declares that Shepard is the only "one" in the past who made it that far, Javik was to be the one to succeed 50,000 years ago but didn't. And I am sure there was others previous cycles. So there is a special someone per cycle that is kinda pre-destined to change the war entirely.


    Anyways there ya go.
