Might be a shoutout to that series. But it does bare some similarity in themes, and fits with the teasing comments on twitter about suggesting sci-fi movies with massive brainscrew plottwists.

Kind of stretching but one of the Silversun's cover songs:

Humakt83 wrote:"Many Silversun episodes revolved around the relationships and issues experienced by the young crew as part of adolescence. Some episodes dealt with issues of ethics and choices unique to science fiction, such as the question of whether the commander's clone should be treated as human or not, the unique human problems encountered by a crew on a lifelong voyage to the stars, and an encounter with a pulsar whose pulse cycle is in phase with the brainwaves of the crewmember Pancha, to her detriment."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Silversun

" the infection of Commander Cyriax by an alien parasite, his subsequent cure through the use of a harvest clone of him discovered in suspension among the settler pods, and the clone's accidental awakening to full consciousness. The final episode ended in a cliffhanger."

Wow...

But I'm sure it's all just coincidence! [/reductionist mode]

Hey guys, I think I figured it out! This screenshot is of a fake "afterlife" Citadel that Shepard will go to during the indoctrination attempt if he didn't get the Breath Scene! It fits! Kaidan and Wrex are dead in a typical default ManShep, which is always what is shown during the previews, and Emily Wong is always dead!

Wow. I would absolutely love for this to be true. And presumably the decision chamber choice will affect what happens. Perhaps there'll even be a Neverwinter Nights style fake ending where Shep thinks he's awake but actually has accepted the dream.

Uh. /headexplodes

That would actually make some sense. We should try and work out who all those people might be, and if they are dead.

Can't wait to see Legion, Ashley, Mordin, and Thane then. Haha.

(I don't like characters dying when I can avoid it, except for Mordin)

(Yes, this is how the Reapers first tricked me into Synthesis -_-)

Well, if this scrennshot does represent a form of "purgatory" within Shep's mind, and the characters we lost represent Shepard's guilt, then maybe they will turn against him if the hallucination turns more nightmarish / hellish. In which case playing well, would mean only having to fight a few characters, as our reward for keeping as many people as possible alive.

A failshep who got people killed left and right, might have hordes of angry and accusing former squad mates (or Shepard's mental representations of them) to fight through to free himself from the hallucination.

On another topic, does the Citadel have a day / night cycle on the wards? If not, why would it have street lamps?

It's more "Why would it have Earth looking street lamps on what seems to be the Citadel?"

Could be nothing, or it could be just that this is a humanity focused Ward, or it could be just a part of many signs coming together that this scene isn't real.

Or none of the above. Fuck it, we'll do it live!

What better way to give the character that died on Virmire some screen time? I thought something like that might happen in those dreams, but noooo. It's just that damn VentBoy.

Depending on how well you played the Virmire victim and other squadmates like Mordin might make it very difficult for you.

Reapers using Kaidan/Ash to hammer you with guilt, even fight you? Although that would be a dead give away if shown too soon. They'd have to be shown at the end somehow. I don't know.

Both versions could be good. Either it's filled with the people that died or everyone and they are totally behaving out of character.

My guess is it's going to be a stupid DLC based around Ilium and have no contection to the ending and will present a false dichotomy of whatever racket is coming out of Ilium.

That's my baseline.

And if Bioware just does this, I'll get it, enjoy it, then leave my wallet out of Bioware's products forever - until they prove they can do more than this.

Honestly, I dunno what to make of it at the moment.

I know of the whole 'IT IS DEBUNKED BLAH BLAH' claims (and ninjastan's locking of a thread related to the final hours app which baffles me) but this...is new. Though I DID think Liara was in the picture, but the lighting of the area DOES remind e of Purgatory somewhat.

It makes perfect sense!! Throughout the game in the dreams, Shepard is tormented with the voices of everyone who has died so far. How else to bring that around and finally see them post-choice? Shepard already believes he is dead now after whatever he/she chose. Why not have an illusion that reinforces what he believes? A purgatory in Shepard's own mind. Genius!!

Holy guacamole, speculations in full swing, I see.

If what Dwaling says is true, shiver me timbers.

I posted this in the main thread, but it got lost in all the Bioware hate:

Dwaling's idea makes more sense if it's simply a piece of the post-ending content for synthesis.

Shepard meets dead people and realizes he's been harvested, living inside the Reaper matrix, connected to all who came before.

This is more or less what I originally suggested about the picture, as a joke.

Somewhat unrelated, but did anyone of you wonder how there is a Night Club in the Presidium?
Wasn't that usually a more restricted area only available for officials, diplomats etc.?
The Wards were more the place for these kind of establishments.
