** Although this got a HopeSpot 4 years later with the release of GrandTheftAutoV : [[spoiler: Some bookshelves have a copy of a book titled "Red Dead", written by a certain J. Marston. Which would mean that at some point after the playable epilogue, Jack did settle down and write at least one book.]] Hey, you take hope where you can find it...

*** Probably just John -- when Abigail and John are travelling from Beecher's Hope to MacFarlane's Ranch, John asks her where she and Jack were held captive, and her response is "I ain't sure. (...) Can't have been too far from here, though."

* J Edgar Hoover was at the time considered a heroic figure by some, but later reviled for some his sins, (and supposedly is also remembered as a crossdresser).Both him and J Edgar Ross,(who at the time is considered a Heroic Figure by history) were part of the Universe's version of the FBI. So eventually J Edgar Ross will get hammered by history.

* [[spoiler: Killing Edgar's wife and brother nets -50 Honor each. However, killing Edgar nets +100 Honor. The game is telling even a player with maximum honor it's okay do deal some LaserGuidedKarma to Ross, in revenge for Abigail and Uncle.]]

* [[spoiler: It is heavily implied that the reason why Jack is as good a gunslinger as his father in the three years between "[[BolivianArmyEnding The Last Enemy That Shall Be Destroyed]]" and his mother's death is because he was trained by Landon Ricketts. The final newspaper in the game has an article about how famous gunslinger [[TheObiWan Landon Ricketts]] moved back to the States three years ago (when John Marston died), and sometimes after killing someone Jack will proclaim "[[TheObiWan Landon Ricketts]], eat your heart out!"]]

Added DiffLines:

* The ending. [[spoiler: The story ends with John's death. "Remember My Family" is not a Story mission, but a Stranger mission. You are not forced to go after Edgar Ross. The mission is entirely optional. The player, not Jack, ultimately chooses whether or not John's sacrifice was in vain. And considering how little joy there is in gunning Edgar down, it's a pretty strong indictment of the desire for vengeance.]]

** I've always just thought that he was throwing up seeing De Sanata and the waiter hanging all over each other.

** Given that he looks to be puking yellow bile, he's probably just been drinking hard on an empty stomach.

* Why does Snake Oil refill your Dead-Eye meter? Because "dead-eye" isn't a "real" thing, but more a concentration mechanic. So of course it's possible to affect it with a placebo. Maybe John believes in it ''just enough'' to feel like he can pull off his uncanny accuracy again.
