The other question I have is regarding the ID body disposing issue they have in the future. I'm sure I keep missing the answer every viewing.
When OJ goes off to China and meets his lady, he is discovered by the three men and sent back for termination, in the first timeline. Are we to assume that his first timeline and return, hooded up, does not feature the death of his lady? Because if it doesnt, he has no reason to try and escape. Or he simply fails trying to do so.
Yup - I assume one of these two options is what happened.
Also, how do they track him down in China? Is this something connected to the ID problem they have? The reason I ask is that YJ knows he is a Looper and will after 30 years be sent back for his termination. Why doesn't he try and hide, rather than make a scene, where he is more than likely to be tracked to a specific location. He simply looks as if he settles for a rural location within an Asian village somewhere. Wouldn't it make more sense, given his impending return for death, having just fallen in love, he would try and go somewhere further a field to live out his days.
Father afield than a remote village in mainland China? I guess my thinking is that he did try to hide when he moved to the country, covered his tracks, etc. But he is also not surprised when they show up, and this leads me to think that he has some fatalism about it all, because he knows they always
find you. How they always do this is a cool question but is totally outside the realm of our plot - but it would be fun to watch in a separate short film.
