What exactly Happened to Becca? Theories? possible spoilers.
Why do you guys think she went mad? finding katie? seeing samara take out katie? and why was she walking behind that screen thing in the mental ward? let's throw out some theories. i think she actually witnessed the kill and was left alive by samara to pass the word along so to speak.

Re: What exactly Happened to Becca? Theories? possible spoil
We know she didn't just find the body... she knew far far too much.

We know she had some kind of link with Samara, was told something, or was simply "changed"... because she knew how long becca had.

A lot of this depends on two basic questions... where was Becca when the initial attack occured (either in the bathroom still, unlikely since she would have responded to her calls), or in the room itself (probably on the floor since she wasn't visible inside). And it's a sure bet that she was on the scene right after the attack started, with that shriek that Katie let out.

Then it's all a matter of time. Does it take seconds to die, minutes... even hours? We know it can't take very long because Katie's parents were on their way home soon, and Rachel got to Noah a matter of minutes after he was attacked. Death must only take seconds to minutes. Then there's the positions of the bodies. Either Samara MOVED Noah into that chair, or he sat in it. Thing is, the water was puddled around the chair and nothing was around where he initially got it (Except blood and glass). Katie was in the closet.

btw: anyone else notice how the floor in front of Katie's door (3 days later) was sort of rotted and damaged? Just a pool of water won't do that to a wood floor - it looked somehow like it had stained it, been there far longer then it was.

just like in Ring 2 I believe...
I heard around here that the room divider scene was from Ring 2...interesting. But she obviously saw Samara go back into the TV atleast. I don't think she saw the eye, because...well I dunno, it might not effect her, but then I dunno. She obviously saw something to do with Samara and the TV and Katie turning to Rot.

Re: just like in Ring 2 I believe...
I own the trilogy on DVD and i think i can tell you pretty surely that Becca (if it has any resemblance to the scene in Ring 2 where Tomoko's friend is directed past an area with a tv) must have been present when Samara either came out of the TV or climbed back in... The screen is there simply so she cannot see the TV because she's so scared of them.

In Ring 2, Tomoko's friend pushes the screen aside to look at the TV and the image of the well apears on it, resulting in all the mental patients in the ward going absoutely psycho. Like in the original, just before the image of the well disappears you get a quick glimpes of a white arm reaching over the top.

Like Ring 2, but not quite
Becca in the psych ward, and the divider, is straight out of Ring 2. But the way it played out is very different. When Becca stops and the divider keeps going, she is staring at the TV, and she looks rather pleased. I do not believe she is afraid of the TV at all. It seems like she does not want to leave the TV, and that may in fact, be why the divider is there. When she talks to Rachel, she seems to have a smug, knowing look about her. It seems that Becca has a bond with Samara, or at least that her fear has given way to respect.

I would like to read the screenplay, because I wonder if the screenwriter was envisioning it like the way it was in Ring 2, which the director, who never saw it, chose to directed it differently

i really loved that scene in ring 2, but i'm glad they didn't go in the same direction with it. it would have brought up too many questions and might have given away too much.

i believe since she probably saw samara (and not her face) that she was marked by her.. much like in the way that she 'burned' the images of things into her mother's mind and the minds of those that see the video.

If I found her I'd be like: "WTF?!? You've been eating at Taco Bell, again?"

Errr, ok, j/k :b

I'd probably scream my ass off, I guess.

I saw the movie again and caught something. Right after Katie does her 'fake death' thing and they both laugh, the phone rings. Katie looks all scared and Becca seriously says 'The tape IS real.' (or something like that) Maybe she sensed something then. Creeped me out pretty well.

Nah, cuz Katie played it off like she was joking, but then looked all serious; Becca was simply thinking out loud

I'm curious....

Katie's mom was alluding that the death was mysterious and no-one could explain how a young teen's heart could have just stopped. However, on seeing her complexion and expression, it must have been readily apparent to the examiners that cause of death was a little more than just heart failure.

Also, when Rachel was visiting Rebecca in the asylum and when Rachel's hand was turned over by Becky, was there something to be seen in Rachel's palm?

Re: Rebecca etc.
she had to see SOMETHING come out of the TV... that's why they put a screen in front of her while she walked by that room in the psycho ward.
she might of well have seen everything... but Samara couldn't see her because Becca hadn't seen the tape.
That's my theory.

Re: Rebecca etc.
Well nvm then. Its prolly alot to read. There was just a bunch of people's pov's of what happened at her house. But im wondering, if the mom said she could see the look on katie's face, wouldnt the mom be like mental too and not just becca?
