To the Moon Play-Along – Act 1 Questions

Below are the questions to consider in your Act 1 To the Moon play-along post (to publish from Friday 5th June). Highly recommend you don’t look at the questions until after you’ve finished Act 1 (and the tiny bit of unskippable Act 2 until it gives you the option to save again) as they may contain spoilers.

I’m looking forward to seeing what everyone thinks!

Act 1 Questions:

  1. Let’s start off with the big guns — at the completion of Act 1 — how do you now feel about the very concept of granting someone’s dying wish by overwriting their memories with new ones?
  2. What did you think of River’s choice to put her treatment behind that of Anya?
  3. In response to Neil commenting that it was like watching a train-wreck unfold, Eva says, “The ending isn’t any more important than the moments leading up to it.” Do you agree?
  4. What did you make of Johnny’s decision not to read the book offered by Dr. Lee?
  5. How do you feel about Johnny as a person now, particularly after his revelation of why he (at least initially?) was interested in River?
  6. We saw River’s obsession with origami rabbits very early in the piece — and some of the events that tracked back as a possible origin along the way. After Johnny told her about his initial motivations is when it all kicked off. Neil thought it might’ve been River holding onto a grudge. What do you think?
