|Scuzzy Wrote:So, I've been thinking about this, and this is what I've come up with.
First, Sam Flynn discovers that Ed Dillinger Jr. isn't such a bad guy. As a matter of fact, Eddy thinks very similarly among the same lines as Sam: information should be free, Encom charges too much, and so on. They become friends.
Sam eventually introduces Ed Jr. to The Grid, a new place Sam created. Much like his father's, except colored like the end of Tron 1. It's alive and has a sun and the programs just *love* Sam and Ed. They play the Games but instead of programs dying, they're just transported back to the starting area, no harm done, and so on. It's great fun for everyone, and everyone is happy.
I really don't see this happening at all, look at EDJr's attitude when we see him. He looks bored, he has this smug "I am better than all of you" attitude about him, he talks down to Alan and not in a very subtle way in fact he couldn't have gotten more blatent if he tried. Also look at how he dominates the board, he decides on what they should tell the public, he decides when he's done with the meeting also. This just stinks of a highly intelligent person who knows it and believes that its only a matter of time before he's calling the shots (assuming he isn't doing that already). We know Ed's attitude towards giving things away for free, that idea "dissapeared with Kevin Flynn"
|Scuzzy Wrote:But a dark turn overcomes Ed. He starts being a despot to the programs; abusing them, actually killing them in the Games, maybe some sexual deviance. Sam in response builds a movement for freedom while Ed replies with his own army. There's lots of fighting and action scenes and so on and so forth.|
This is basically T:L all over again except its not Flynn vs Clu its Sam vs EDJr.
|Scuzzy Wrote:Just as Dillinger is defeated, the twist is revealed: the programs *like* being dominated, they *enjoy* being "slaves", for lack of a better word, because they're *programs*. Their very existence is to serve the Users, whatever it is they want! That's why it was easy for Sam to rally an army - they're serving their User. "Freedom" or "Servitude", the Programs don't care. They're making their User happy.|
This wouldn't work, go back to the original Tron. They don't like being slaves, they dont like being dominated otherwise no one would have had issue with being put on the game grid.
|Scuzzy Wrote:What about the MCP and Clu 2? Well, they were programs themselves. They were usurping the role of the User for themselves. That's why programs could rebel (remember that Clu's army was comprised of re-programmed Programs. They wouldn't follow Clu willingly).|
The MCP was destorying any program who believed in the users, his programs were always given a choice "Those of you who renounce this superstitious and hysterical belief will be eligible to join the warrior elite of the MCP" we see this. I think Clu only rectified those who would not join him willingly, don't forget Flynn fought back and Clu fed from this. My opinion of this is that with the ISO's gone and the strain gone from the system that we see in Tron:B (assuming for now this is canon) Flynn created his own army to fight back. These were captured and repurposed and put back on the front lines to fight Flynn, meaning that true Clu loyalists were not harmed and put in key positions (as we see with Dyson and Teslar in Tron:U)
Just my thoughts on your thoughts
