Okay Shadowplay was awesome, but I can see how eventually Roberts could make a third installment in order to answer the big question unanswered from this story arc. Who crreated the fake matrix, and why? We know that the senate didn't, as they tried to get unblocked access to it in order to find out its origins, and Sentinel tried to hook in to its wisdom, only to fail. Therefore it seems to me that the only ones who could have done this would be its guardians the Primal Vanguard. My last thread on the vanguard got no responses at all, but i'm gonna make one again, because this is a interesting idea to me. For wht reasons would they make a fake matrix? There are 2 possibilities in my mind. 1. To Justify their continued existence. Someone in the Vanguard bungled things, and the matrix was lost. The Vanguard was a hugely well known organization (as we saw in Ironfist), and to admitt hey screwed up like this would be a serious blow to them and there supporters, especially in a time with the Senate acting as they were. 2. They voluntarily hid it. The senate was hysterically corrupt, and probably hated the idea that an group they didn't directly control had unfettered access to the Matrix. So the Phobos controversy was manufactured to give the Guard's agents proper cover in order to move the Matrix to a place the Senate would never think to look. It seems to me that with the Matrix connection to the Guilding Hand, the Vanguard were more a religious order than government one, and you can guess how the Senate felt about that. I'm almost leaning towards the second as I like the idea that someone else was working against the Senate in those days, though 1 could be viable as well. Wht do you guys think?
