Resident Evil Village: Why Did Chris Kill Mia?

Resident Evil Village: Why Did Chris Kill Mia?

Resident Evil Village is what’s on everybody’s mind these days. The action starts immediately as the opening of Resident Evil Village features a mysterious shootout and eventually the titular village.

The new title picks up around three years after the events of Resident Evil 7, where we see Ethan reunited with Mia and their baby, Rose. As we come around to Resident Evil Village, we see the domestic bliss interrupted by an unexpected attack by none other than Chris Redfield.

1. Why Did Chris Shoot Mia?

Chris and a team of operatives come in and shoot Mia while knocking out Ethan. The team was supposed to transport Ethan, Rose, and the now-dead Mia, but we gain consciousness in a crash with a string of unanswered questions. Only later in the storyline, we get to the real truth.

Maybe Chris is not the Bad Guy

The reason Chris shot Mia was that she was not the real Mia but was, in fact, Mother Miranda posing as her. Miranda was infected by the same mold as Eveline and can shapeshift into any form. Chris was only protecting Ethan and Rose from her, but what about the real Mia?

2. What Happened to Mia? When did Mother Miranda Replace Mia?

The Real Mia is alive and has been kidnapped by Mother Miranda in her laboratory. Miranda had faked her own death using her powers when Chris came to execute her to get a chance to snatch Rosemary.

The Real Mia is Safe

Chris Redfield again proves to be the real hero than the villain when he rescues the actual Mia while fighting through the village. Mother Miranda’s real motive was to use Rosemary Winters to resurrect her own daughter, Evelyn.

3. What Will Happen to Rose Now?

After defeating Miranda, Ethan is severely injured, and he makes the final sacrifice so that Mia and Rose can get away. He destroys the Megamycete, the source of Miranda’s power. This takes us to the end of Ethan and Mother Miranda.

Rose

Rose is well and alive as we see her in the final scene as she visits Ethan’s grave. We also get a hint of her powers which are quite similar to Evelyn, but this time, they are used for the greater good.

This leaves us with many new questions about how the story will unfold. Did we see Ethan Winters for the last time? Or is there really some chance to see our hero be resurrected in the future titles.
