Citadel: Holy Crap, Are We Actually Done!?

Hi! This is another reminder to follow @MSPixelBlog on Twitter to meet me for E3 antics.

Last time, on MSPixel:

Yes, yes, of course, the implication is that Shepard is rad because she has rad friends, whereas all Clone Shepard has is Brooks, and Brooks sucks.

I'd like to extrapolate this out to a bigger metaphor: Bioware is rad not because they made Shepard, but because they made a whole incredible Mass Effect cast.

Either way, Garrus pulls Shepard up.

Enh, you can opt to leave her dangle, but what the hell.

Holy hell, I guess that's one way to take care of Clone Shepard!

Back in the cargo bay of the Normandy, we tie up some loose ends.

I don't even know what this is. "Oh yeah, I mean, you waged a full scale battle down here for at least a half hour, but naw, stuff's just a little dusty."

Surprise, Brooks is going to jail.

And such, the plot of the Citadel DLC comes to a close. There's still --


Okay, you know what? Something always bothered me about the end of this story.

Shepard died, and then her body survived reentry and planet fall. Then she was resurrected! Given all that, why do we assume that Clone Shepard died? She was a clone, right? She should be made of the same stuff.

If nothing else, surely she survived a drop of a few miles.
