They don’t even need to make a clone. It's not that crazy of a theory either. There are literally hundreds of surviving Wesker children from project Wesker all over the world, lorewise. The 13 that were given the virus that gave Wesker his abilities were just the most promising (though only Albert and Alex were the survivors). Alex wanted to infect them all to make more of her and Albert.First thought I had when seeing this headline was "Oh God, they're gonna make Ethan a secret Wesker clone aren't they." I'm really hoping it's not something that stupid
Is it really a mold copy or is he just infected with the mold?
I mean his hand got stapled back after all. I imagine if he was a copy then attaching his hand back wouldn’t make much sense.
There were plenty of in game documents suggesting that he was level 2 infected at the end of RE7. For reference, level one is increased regeneration, level two is hallucination of Evelyn, and level 3 is basically all the molded monsters and baker family.
If you've actually played the game and tried to escape Jack in the beginning you'd know he'd taunt Ethan by cutting off his foot and putting a Health bottle while he tells you to come and get the foot.But how does Ethan KNOW that he is able to reattach his hand if he doesn't know he has regenerative powers?
Well, a mold would know, and he doesn't even question that, he just do it and acts like is normal.But how does Ethan KNOW that he is able to reattach his hand if he doesn't know he has regenerative powers?
I'm not going to put this in spoilers because the title of the thread should be enough warning, but..I think that is a copy. Evelyn wanted to have a family, so Ethan and Mia would be the parents and the Bakers the grandparents (that's why she baited him to the farm), however Jack kills Ethan in the beginning, so to fix things Eve makes a copy of him with the mold. My guess is that she wanted him to be close to normal, that's why he is a level 2. Also, when Ethan wakes up, he is in the table with the rest of the family fulfilling his role, something goes wrong for Eve and the copy becomes independent and gets out of control. That also explains why Ethan doesn't show his personality, the mold just have the memories so ot acts based on those, as the game progress the mold is creating a new character (basically giving the player the control over it's choices), which culminates with the player being able to choose who Ethan should save at the end (Mia or Zoe), if Ethan was still alive, there wouldn't be a choice, it would be up to the character... At least that's what I think.

That's not entirely how the mold works. The mold is like a virus that will cause mutations in its victims. And while it also holds the information and memories of its victims, it doesn't mean the current host needs to be copied. Many can survive after infection, and Miranda is the first example of this. She discovered the mold only after being infected.
Eveline is basically the first of BOW experiments to successfully host the mold as a "copy". As for Ethan, he's the anomaly because death does not cause his body extreme mutation, and as an extension, it's implied that Rose also has these powers, which is why Miranda wanted her. He's not really "dead" in any sense of the word. He's more a super-human with immortality, the final form that Umbrella was looking to achieve with its experiments.
Free Cam mods exposed that the character walking up to the vehicle in the epilogue is Ethan. So there's two scenarios: He could still be alive and now it's Rose who will have to save him in the next installment, or it's just a hallucination. The cool touch is that Ethan is not wearing his jacket, which Rose now wears.I hope he is and I don't see why Capcom would bring him back.
Unless you argue that he now inhabits Rose's body, like the mold lives through his daughter sharing his mind or something... Which is quite possible.
Cool, I didn't know that. But I bet in a hallucination or the mind share thing.Free Cam mods exposed that the character walking up to the vehicle in the epilogue is Ethan.
