Major spoilers for Bioshock Infinite and Burial at Sea: Episode 1. Didn’t watch/play? DON’T READ!
Hi all! I hope everyone is blazing away at BaS: Episode 2. I’ll definitely blog about it in the upcoming weeks, but in celebration of more Elizabeth (and apparently Booker), here’s a Doppleganger post about their relationship:
One of the most interesting aspects of Infinite is the Booker-Elizabeth relationship. They (and we) start off with no idea about their relationship, and then we all get walloped over the head with it in the end.
I’m not going to lie: I pegged Booker as her father pretty early on. (And then I got blindsided by the Bookerstock revelation.) I had vaguely remembered being spoilered about it, and then the “AD” on his hand fit the names “Anna” and “DeWitt” together pretty nicely and I figured it out. Besides, there was definitely a Last of Us Joel-Ellie vibe between the two by the time we broke into dear old Lady Comstock’s tomb.
But there’s definitely more to it than the “Luke! I am your Father!” element. Booker and Elizabeth go on concurrent, opposite character arcs.
