Showing Snow or Not showing Snow (*Episode 2 Spoilers*)
Not sure if this has already been discussed, but something struck me as I was playing through yet another session of TWAU. At the close of 'Smoke and Mirrors' it's revealed in pretty "Wtf..." detail via photos that Crane has been having glamour sex with a Snow White mock up, performing acts both carnally basic (Fingerlingus, anyone?) and carnally violent.
We can only assume where Episode 3 is going to pick up, either going right into the Hunt for Crane or spending some time with Bigby and Snow coming to terms with what, at first glance, seems to be the former Deputy Mayor being the murderer.
The thought that struck me is, obviously, Bigby's gonna have to explain some things to Snow. However, will that include showing Snow the all the photos, namely those that feature "her" having sex acts performed on her, with her, etc? Will we have the option of not showing or telling Snow about those images? Will we have to convince Beauty to keep what she saw in those photos to herself?
We've already seen how deeply it affected Snow to see a decapitated version of herself. Imagine her reaction if she had concrete, graphic proof of what, exactly, her doppelganger was being used for? Even if she likely already had those suspicions. I mean, she is Snow White. The most beautiful Fable of 'em all. What else would a mystical clone of her be used for?
If we are given the choice, which would you chose? Tell Snow or don't?
Personally, given how Paragon I've been playing Bigby, I'd opt to not tell her about the sex stuff. If anything, the rationale would be that Snow's fury at knowing just how abusive Crane was being to her both in a working sense and sex fantasy sense would possibly make things even more complicated in searching for Crane and trying to get to the truth.
