You guys ever notice how the hand in Pixie's avatar looks kind of like the Eiffel Tower?

I seriously thought after all the massive debate about what this image was that it would be worth making its own thread. I'm shocked it died...

Yeah. But that speculation was mostly for lack of anything better to do before we got the trailer frame images.

I also think we kinda exhausted any viable avenues (and some not viable ones).

I mean clearly the Eiffel Tower is going to be important to this somehow. So hopefully it'll come back into play eventually?

At this point I feel it is being used as a trail marker. I do hope it's repeated use gets addressed either in the game or in the movie.

Phone in tower

I still think the tower must mean more than just something Megan likes. The cell phone just found from Howard was inside an Eiffel Tower bag. Maybe this was the connection they were planning all along-with the juke box numbers being the pass key, and the phone being a symbol of communication. That was kind of given to us though, not something we could reason out or research. I don't know- I just wanted something like an internet radio broadcast that we found from all the numbers.

Maybe the tower will still be part of the final password.

I'm honestly not sure what to make of it. It could mean something more to Megan of Howard in the movie & might just be used in this ARG to denote that something is "Official" in-game. IDK.

Well, Paris seems to hold some special meaning to Megan and Howard.. If we surmise that MEW is wearing one of Megans 'I Love Paris" T shirt in the trailers and all these references/pics/posters of the Tower, there must be some special memories attached to some common event in Paris..

'T.I.D.O. Wave' originated in Paris...mayhaps Howard knows someone 'on the inside'...?

I feel like, now that we know Megan is an artist of some kind, the Paris thing is less mysterious.

Paris is kinda shorthand for small town girl with big dreams - just like New York can be.

I also think some of those eiffel tower paintings in the bunker are probably hers.

Well since New York was practically leveled in the first movie it would make sense that small town girls with big dreams would want to go someplace other than New York. Paris has art as well and Megan wanted to go to Art school in Chicago according to Howard's FAPT post from the game.

So. Seems like it *was* a military medal hiding in this image this whole time.

The question remains: which medal.

We know it's from World War two, but we're not sure which military branch and it could potentially be BRITISH, or American, since Howard's dad was stationed in Sheffield (lots of American's stationed in the UK, but still something to keep in mind).

Maybe it's just a medal of honour?

It's close, although I'm not sure how we missed it the first time around.
