What if John Marston kills Arthur Morgan?

Recommended Posts

I've seen a lot of people talking about how there's a chance that you end up playing as John Marston after the last mission similar to how you end up playing Jack in RDR and I got started thinking, what if John actually kills Arthur Morgan in the end and then you get to play as John? And that's why we don't hear or see much about him in RDR. What do you guys think? Do you have similar thoughts about the ending or do you think that there will be a better explanation as to why we never heard about Arthur Morgan in the first RDR.

I misspelled something and changed the title.

John killing Arthur is too much of a backstabby type move for that not to be mentioned in RDR1, and the rest of the gang not throw that in Johns face as he hunts them down. Too bold a move to write yourself out of. They think they have written a great excuse as to why Arthur is never mentioned, and we'll find out how good that is. But they have to be trying to seamlessly make these two stories connect as if RDR1 was written after this one. To ignore that and leave a huge plot hole like John killing Arthur and the gang not bringing that up, just kills the franchise storywise and I dont think Rockstar is that stupid to make themselves look like writing amateurs.

It would be make sense but also be too obvious I think.

 

I'm starting to believe Arthur survives somehow. Another close to the ending death of our main character would be what everyon expects but I think Rockstar are aware of that.

 

 

I hope Arthur survives.

It wouldn't make narrative sense as he would've been called out on it in rdr. Unless he killed him in secret.

Arthur is Landon Ricketts. He just changed names.

If John kills him RDR2 will be trash

It doesn't seem likely. If the game covers the fall of the Van Der Linde gang then John will already be gone. Even if he heals up and comes back to kill Arthur before starting his ranch, why just kill Arthur? Why would he only want revenge on one person and not the whole gang?

John Marston shoots Morgan in the back, beat his horse to death, burn his house, rape his woman and children and fire up a cigar as the credits starts rolling.

Rockstar would be stupid NOT to allow us to play as Marston at some point in RDR2; it's a no-brainer.   I'm not sure killing Morgan would be that catalyst though.  From what I'm gathering in the trailers, Morgan seems to be trying to protect Marston from Dutch as the story evolves.   I'd say the overall plot is that Morgan, as right-hand man to Dutch, begins to realize Dutch is going to get them all killed or arrested before it's over (life as an outlaw gang on the run is never gonna have a happy ending), and has to make the hard decision to turn against his boss to save himself and whatever friends he still cares about.

Let's be honest, some of you just want Rockstar to do you a fan service & satisfy the strange hard-on you have for John. He's not THAT great.

John is a GOOD BOY, and I will not have him slandered!

I feel like perhaps the player will get to control Arthur's fate to a certain extent

That being said I'l be treating John like the turncoat he is

Shoot me, boyo

Really wouldn't surprise me if Arthur is the one that learns that John has been turned by the brass, lol. 

 

Could lead to Arthur being the first that John got, could be the one that John actually liked enough to let go clean (Maybe even saw to it that Arthur wasn't named/known by the authorities), or that Arthur is still out there after RDR previous and that young Jack learns of the man in a further game later on.

 

Good potential in this story, looking forward to learning this side of things. (Though I'll be keeping away from here/anywhere as things become known until I've had that first run through as a greenhorn, lol).
