Who are we killing at the end of the story?

  1. When you cross the multiverse, I assume we do not become the "we" in that universe, right?

    Booker Dewitt is still the child-selling man and Comstock is still the Prophet. They are two separate entities (but also one)
    We are also playing as the same Booker that walk through many light-houses, however when we "walked in" to the scene where Anna loses her finger, there are only 2 Bookers (player and comstock). Shouldn't the Player see Booker and Comstock fighting for Anna in a third person view? As a separate being?

    In the Lutece twins case, aren't they always together, simply because the "Brother" cross into the "Sister"'s universe? It is not like they become a single entity (man/woman paradox) when the "Brother" cross the universe...

    In that respect, why are we killing the Player? shouldn't we kill the Booker that is facing the choice to be baptised? In a third person view?

  1. The key thing you have to understand about the ending is that in the last room you've gone back in time. Booker makes a mention of this, I believe. When you enter the final room (with all the Annas, the hill, etc.) you become the booker of that time (or, rather, the booker of that time disappears and you take his place). Because this is now BEFORE you could accept the baptism/become Comstock, killing you then would make the events of the rest of the game not happen. The obvious paradox that would result from that is solved by the existence of the Lutece twins, in a theory far too complicated for me to explain here.
