BioShock Infinite - The Luteces (All cutscenes - Part 1)

1731 ratings | 225466 views
This is the first part of my video compilation of the Luteces, two supporting characters in BioShock Infinite. Here is the second part: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5xatuG6RWRE. Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/user?u=4177227 Robert Lutece is a pioneer in the field of quantum physics, belonging to the same reality as Booker DeWitt. He is contacted by Rosalind Lutece, his female counterpart from an alternate reality and "sister", after she discovers a way to mechanically engineer Tears in her world and across multiple timelines, and correspondingly opened a tear for each other to meet face to face. Soon, the twins acted as agents for Zachary Hale Comstock, in which Robert is tasked to absolve Booker DeWitt's debts in exchange for his infant daughter, Anna. From then on, the twins work together for four years and help to develop technology that aids in Comstock's development of Columbia. However, as they experiment further with tears, they foresee Comstock's future in his efforts to guide Anna, now renamed as Elizabeth, into leading Columbia to the destruction of New York City several decades after. Realizing the mistakes they committed in creating Elizabeth's fate, Robert manages to convince Rosalind into returning Elizabeth back to her original universe after providing an ultimatum that he will part with his sister if she is not willing to undo what they have done, despite the latter's laments of their course of action and immensity of the task. In efforts to cover up Elizabeth's origins and secure the image of the "Prophet's Seed", Comstock assigned Jeremiah Fink to sabotage their tear-manipulation machine. As the result, they now exist across all of space time, believed to be dead. This allows them to appear wherever, and whenever they want, which Rosalind is content with as she can stay together with her "brother," free of restraint from life, death and all divided barriers of possibility. However, Robert is still not satisfied with the still unresolved manner of Elizabeth's fate. Their circumstances made the task much more difficult as they could risk disrupting realities even further if they directly interfere now that they are "dead." Robert then proposes that for their unfinished business to be resolved, they need bring Booker DeWitt to Comstock's universe to retrieve his daughter. The Luteces share similarities with Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, characters from Alice in Wonderland. Their cryptic and somewhat mocking way of addressing Booker and Elizabeth also echoes the Cheshire Cat, from the same novel. They also share similarities with Rosencrantz and Guildenstern from the play Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead by Tom Stoppard in their play with logic, probability and language. The coin-tossing and the improbable outcome of numerous 'heads' in a row is a central theme to the play, used to indicate a constant in different universes (the count of heads '122' also appears in the combination of bells at the lighthouse). This may also indicate the number of Booker's tries to save Elizabeth.

heads or tails
Philip Tucker (3 months ago)
I just noticed, whenever booker flipped the coin, the back side of the male leutece was already full of heads tally marks. All those tally marks were other versions of booker that have failed.

100% chance these two have slept with each or "experimented" with each other

So how/when did they know that he was the one to break the cycle?
marco hernandez (9 months ago)
Necessities so what does that mean with the raptures dlc isn't that where the cycle ends or it never ends
Necessities (9 months ago)
marco hernandez some say he didn't even. It's called the infinite theory. That it keeps happening over and over no matter what
Bluelazor (10 months ago)
I'm honestly not sure if they ever knew that Booker would "break the cycle" eventually. They only knew that he was the only one who would do all that he did to save Elizabeth. Kept trying over and over again with different Bookers and Elizabeths until the variables fell into place and they reached the point where the cycle was shattered. I don't think they ever entirely believed a specific Booker would accomplish the goal until one finally did.

in the scene with the coin flip, the thing that bothers me is the sudden flick in the movement. i do like how well the chalk goes onto the board with the animation.

What is the significance with the lines "He doesn't row?" and "No, he DOESN'T row" I can't quite grasp what he Robert means by that.

Stop stop stop, when i played the beginning(Heads or Tails) my Booker said HEADS, why does he says TAILS in this video? wut?
Hijynks (1 year ago)
Wayss The variable is how Booker calls it. The constant is what the coin actually lands on. Booker could say either Heads or Tails, but no matter what the coin will always turn out Heads.

The only reason I would want to play this game again is for these two. And that's saying something considering I am awful at FPS.

If they had sex would it be incest or masturbation?
Deuz_Ex_Machina _42 (11 months ago)
BluenoseX1 self-cest. An alternate version of yourself is still you, so if someone tells you "go fuck yourself," you just Fuck your dimensional alternate.
Manifestations? If you define a person as being nothing more than their genetics + the environment they experience (which I do), then the only difference between Robert and Rosalind is that one had an extra pair of chromosomes. This is why one is a man and the other a woman. So they're different on the genetic level, and different on the experiential level, since once they started interacting with each other they both had different experiences and thoughts, this is outlined by how they disagree on certain philosophical and scientific ideas. So although they're very similar they are not the same, and just as you wouldn't consider twins to be the same people, you really shouldn't consider Rosalind and Robert to be either. That's my thought anyway.
Noble Phantasm (1 year ago)
Nope It's the same person in two manifestations
It wouldn't be masturbation because they're different people, it wouldn't be incest either because they are not related through lineage.

"He doesn't row" "He doesn't row?" "No, he DOESN'T row." "Ah, I see what you mean." It's so fulfilling to finally understand that part.  It was right at the beginning and I had no clue what was going on and I remember being like, "There MUST be an explanation for this."
TomDufall (10 months ago)
It means that it isn't that he doesn't do rowing or that he doesn't know how to row, it is that whenever this constant plays out he doesn't do the rowing. He may be able to row, but he will not.

I LOVE these two characters they bring big PERSONALITY to the intelligence they have . Honestly my favorite parts of this game are the "mini" moments listening to what they say. What I would like to understand though that I don't understand is if booker or comstock or choose your death is her father...if he has to die wouldn't she have to die??? And if he is NOT her father if he dies she still would have no purpose right???
jsegaul420 (4 years ago)
so... they are the same person but they say there brother and sister to keep the public from learning what happend. one was born with double x chromozone and one was x y.... constants and variables...

The bird necklace represents her freedom while the cage represents her caged up in that tower..right? This happens right after saving her so your minds more set about her freedom. I picked the bird, I'm sure most everyone did too.
Chey c: (1 year ago)
TheOctavariumTheory I was young and chose the cage simply because it was more symmetrical
The Truth (3 years ago)
I actually thought about which one to choose in that moment.  I chose the dove because it represents hope, which they both desperately needed to reconcile their variables that lead to a loop of regret.  Hope that one day that coin will land on tails and the circle will be unbroken for good.
Jaosn (3 years ago)
Is it sad I picked mine based on looks? I preferred the bird.
Wilson Tang (3 years ago)
I picked cage on my first playthrough because I thought everyone else would be basic and pick the "pretty" bird one. I just wanted to be different.
TheOctavariumTheory (4 years ago)
+Badmunky64  In order to eliminate ANY possibility of Booker becoming Comstock, he has to die. Maybe in one "isolated" universe, Booker never fought in The Battle of Wounded Knee, but still became Comstock through some religious epiphany. To put it in easier terms, the man is a constant, the manner in which he becomes the man is a variable. *SPOILERS BELOW* Now, I was hoping that Booker would become some sort of Lutece-like figure, who is "scattered across all possibilities", where Comstock is dead but Booker is only "dead". He's a badass character. But Burial at Sea Ep 2, shows us that he did indeed die and now only exists (now existed) as part of the late Elizabeth's imagination. HOWEVER, if Mrs. Dewitt was pregnant with Anna before Booker went to war, Anna still MIGHT exist, even with Elizabeth's death. I'm no Levine, but I think it works, emphasis on "think". I also think it's a good angle for the next BioShock, if it happens at all.

If you stay with em after the coin flip, Rosalind will tell you to go away. Then, she'll say that she has to repeat herself if you stay and later on repeats herself. A parody of video game tropes where characters have few lines of dialogue.
