So he turns into drawn towards becoming a member of the Victory Challenge. We don’t see how he first traps his spouse on this VR hell, however we now have to imagine that he drugged her and should hold drugging her each day to maintain her trapped within the tech. We’re later instructed that each one the boys are accountable for “caring for their wives” (though it’s horrifically urged that a few of the ladies in Victory are randomly equipped by the venture since Jack selected to provide his “personal spouse”). Maintenance would presumably additionally embrace feeding and even placing wives into diapers. However once more, the film glosses over the messier particulars.
Jack later rationalizes to himself and Alice (when she learns the reality) that that is in some way all for her, that she is overworked and desires a greater life… that they want a greater life. Frank’s reply, trapping ladies in a simulated “excellent” male-dominated world whereas depriving them of their actual lives, appeals to Jack. Alice is understandably outraged that he would take away her company, her life, and her capability to make her personal selections.
When the boys in Victory go to “work,” they exit the simulation themselves and return to no matter they do in the actual world—in Jack’s case, he has to earn cash to pay Frank to stay within the simulation, though we don’t know precisely what that job is. And he takes care of Alice, her bodily being, anyway, who lies hypnotized on their mattress, hooked as much as a machine, her thoughts perpetually in Victory.
What Occurs When Alice Goes Again to Victory?
After the shock remedy seemingly resets Alice’s thoughts and wipes her recollections of her actual life, she returns to Victory, seemingly completely happy and again to regular. She is cooking and cleansing at residence, sporting her glamorous little costume, and ready for Jack to get again from work. However when he will get residence, he begins buzzing a tune that triggers Alice’s recollections once more, they usually come flooding again.
This time she’s carried out with Victory for actual, and he or she intends to go away. She and Jack battle, and he or she smashes a glass over Jack’s head, which for some motive kills him (we additionally be taught that if you happen to die in Victory, you die in the actual world, though it’s not clear why that occurs since Victory isn’t actual). Bunny enters the home, sees what has occurred, and tells Alice she has to run earlier than they arrive and get her, which is able to nearly actually imply her loss of life. Bunny, you see, has all the time recognized the reality.
Why Does Bunny Keep?
Whereas we don’t get to know Bunny very effectively, she actually comes throughout as a queen bee of the wives and the central data hub for all of the native gossip. She can also be fiercely supportive of their way of life in Victory, which makes it all of the extra inexplicable that she has recognized all alongside what Victory actually was.
