Just noticed...*Spoilers

A few things I just noticed on replay. I'm assuming that at least in some ways Maria=Mary

Maria at Rosewater Park:

At the end, when they get done talking James just kind of thoughtlessly starts to leave. Maria reacts with "You were gonna just leave me?! I'm all alone and scared!" I feel like this scene might have played out with Mary in the hospital, where James just left in a self-centered absent-mindedness and Mary pleaded for him to stay when she was all alone and scared.

Maria at the end pulls the strange line "Or maybe, you hated her." Which we know is true, at least on some levels. James reacts very strongly.

When they open the fridge:

Maria reaches in and takes the ring. Maria gives the ring to James (seeing the wedding allusion?). James says "Thanks!" and cracks a very rare smile. The ring is made of lead. Lead is heavy and burdensome. Just like Mary was a burden.

Lol!

Not to be too big of a dick, TC, but yeah, the revelation you came to isn't that startling to most people.

lol. I wasn't trying to stop the presses with Maria=Mary, I was just using that as a starting point for the other things. Like Maria giving a smiling James a lead ring.

To be fair it was to me when I was like 15 or 16 and first discovered the truth behind Mary's death

I didn't mean it wasn't startling to people when they first experience it, just that to people who already have played the game (like most people who come here), it's not too mind-blowing.

I don't think TC said "Hey guys guess what I found out it is going to blow your @#^$&# MIND!"

I think the symbolism you mentioned makes a lot of sense. I haven't played this game in a while or I would add upon it.
