The Final Scene Death Scenarios

This is an unavoidable spoiler, but there are a limited number of possible deaths in The Final Scene, and some of them are creative. You may not have experienced all of them, and may be curious. (-: So, here's a list:

*You can fall to your death if you lean over the balcony trying to grab the loose gear for too long. (This is the most visually interesting death, as the camera twists around you as you fall.)
*You can be killed by the falling light backstage if you walk under it rather than looking up.
*You can be electrocuted by touching the electrified metal door without wearing rubber gloves.
*And you can be killed by the wrecking ball at the very end of the game if your time runs out--if you are standing in the room with Maya at the time, you will actually get to see the wrecking ball come smashing through the wall.

You can also lose the game without dying if Nancy fails to hide quickly enough on Day 3 and is escorted from the building by the police.

Easter Eggs and Optional Actions

There weren't any easter eggs per se in The Final Scene. However, if you call the National Archives number (1-202-555-5000) before receiving it from Eustacia, you will get a special menu where you can listen to all the musical themes used in this game.

There are also a number of actions you can take in the game which are entirely optional to the plot. To give them a try, follow this link: The Final Scene Options.

Spoilers: Plot Holes

Final Scene has a very good plot that holds together quite well, but a couple of holes did stand out:

1) How did Joseph bring Maya through that secret tunnel into the Ladies Dressing Room without Simone noticing? She noticed Nancy climbing out of her wardrobe; surely she would have noticed Joseph and Maya coming through? Was there a second exit from that secret tunnel? If so, why wasn't it marked on the blueprint slide?

2) Why did Joseph hide the shoe and pizza boxes? Having the police believe Maya isn't in the building is ruining his plan; you'd think if anything he'd be planting more evidence in an attempt to regain their interest, not hiding it.

3) And most problematically, why does Joseph try to prevent Nancy from stopping the destruction of the theater in the endgame? This makes NO sense at all; Joseph's motivation for this entire plot was to save the theater, and now that Nancy's finally found the proof that will save it, Joseph suddenly won't let her stop the wrecking ball? Huh?
