Many people thinks that the ending says that Faith is alive and was glamoured as Nerissa.
BUT after some research I think that it is Nerissa, and that Nerissa was glamouring Faith in the beginning.
Well, let see it this way:
Faith was killed by Georgie, we know that. And after that Nerissa did want Bigby on the case since she doesn't want the world to forget about her and the other girls suffering. So Nerissa glamoures as Faith, starts a fight with Woodsman so that Bigby can get his eyes on the case. Then Nerissa places Faiths head on the doorstep, and when we see Nerissa in the rest of the game, she is actually Nerissa.
But I can't get over this:
The Huff and Puff smoke, Nerissa in one point hates e'm, and in the ending she takes e'm, and smoke them just like Faith did.
The marks on Faith's head was the exact same marks as the Woodsman gave her.
And then it's the other theory that it's Nerissas head on the doorstep glamoured as Faith. Could be, but why would she be glamoured as Faith when she knew that Faith was in trouble for the picture?
And it also seems like sometimes Nerissa is Nerissa, and sometimes that someone is glamoured as her. Let's say both of them are alive, then who's head is it? Another girl from Pudding N pie glamoured as Faith, since Nerissa says everyone seems to forget them and don't care? And both Faith and Nerissa wants to get out of that life, that's what started this whole thing.
But then back to Faith again, she has a motive. Let's start with the story of Faith after she and Prince Lawrence came to Fabletown, things became different (they didn't have enough money to actually live among the other Fables, etc), and she wanted to leave prince Lawrence and move for herself to start a new life. Maybe she faked her death to get away from it all? Hard to say, and a pretty rough thing to do to her husband.
And there's also the Bloody Mary theory, but I don't want to go further in on that one. Cause I can't find any good arguments, she doesn't have the motive or anything. The last thing she would is to let Bigby near the Crooked Man, since the Crooked Man is protehcting Bloody Mary from all the stuff she does for the Crooked man. Unless she just wants to mess things up, and goes on a solo mission. But I don't think that's how it is.
This is really confussing, will we ever get an answear?
Who do you think? Is Nerissa Faith in the ending, or is she Nerissa? Someone else or Bloody Mary?
This has probably been discussed before, but I'm new here. Hope it's okay And I'm also Norwegian, so sorry for the bad english.
