** There has been potential foreshadowing with the Tesskans in that they have trouble translating and the Continuum seems to believe that they can recover what was stolen just by attacking Earth, which would indeed suggest something other than the drive. This could all be a massive case of PoorCommunicationKills.

[[WMG: [[spoiler:Fernando]] will be responsible for driving the Empire into civil war]]
The Tres Primos and related events have strongly hinted that [[spoiler:Fernando is the previous Emperor's child, only never had the chance to be acknowledged]]. He also now has a Fillipod by his side who [[spoiler:knows (or knows who knows) how the Ring Drive works]], and is part of the quest to find Skitter's people who can pilot the Drive safely. If all the Continuum really cares about is the AI the Rogue Maker downloaded into his ship (and which may now be threaded through every human Ring Drive and the FTL communications network), then he could even possibly turn over his own ship's "tainted" Drive as a sign of good faith to get the Continuum on board with helping him build "clean" ones and rise up against the Empire. When all is said and done, [[spoiler:Fernando]] will lead - personally or as a figurehead - a civil war against the usurper Emperor; but the cat will be out of the bag regarding the Drive, forcing human society to become more open.

[[WMG: Fernando will be responsible for driving the Empire into civil war]]
The Tres Primos and related events have strongly hinted that Fernando's the previous Emperor's child, only never had the chance to be acknowledged before the current Emperor offed the previous one. Fernando also now has a Fillipod by his side who knows (or knows who knows) how the Ring Drive works, and is part of the quest to find Skitter's people who can pilot the Drive safely. If all the Continuum really cares about is the AI the Rogue Maker downloaded into his ship (and which may now be threaded through every human Ring Drive and the FTL communications network), then Fernando could even possibly turn over his own ship's "tainted" Drive as a sign of good faith to get the Continuum on board with helping him build "clean" ones and rise up against the Empire.

He tracks down one of his primary contacts, Shannon, and they form a working relationship that allows him to blend in and obtain an apartment close to the one Irene and Benicio occupy. When Shannon observes The Driver's skills behind the wheel, he finds him work as a stunt driver. Shannon, hoping to capitalize on The Driver's looks and looking to break away from his nefarious entanglements, enrolls him in acting classes in the hopes of getting him bigger parts down the line. The Driver's programming allows for him to process minute human characteristics and emulate them: he is capable of learning and displaying emotion, though somewhat thinly; he creates more natural, somewhat stylized speech patterns and vernacular and can affect different dialects and languages; he can appear to engage in basic necessary behaviors such as eating, drinking, and sleeping. This programming, along with the acting classes and Shannon's mandated diet of action/chase films, leads to The Driver creating a personality, gleaned from everything from Alain Delon in Le Samourai to Steve McQueen in Bullit. This provides The Driver a better opportunity to gain Irene and Benicio's trust without revealing what he really is, as his mission is more infiltration/escort quest than simple search-and-destroy.

[[WMG: The Driver is Jullian from ''Film/OnlyGodForgives''
Obviously, both men are played by Ryan Gosling but on top of that, their personalities are nearly identical: quiet, mysterious, and violent. Either ''Drive'' is a prequel or a sequel.

The prequel theory: [[spoiler: Bernie told the Driver that the mob would be after him for the rest of his life, so fleeing to Thailand to work with his brother was probably the safest bet. This would explain why Jullian seemed reluctant to be in the family business. He wanted to leave ''the life'' behind in LA but was trapped working for his insane family.]]

The sequel theory: [[spoiler: We never saw Chang cut off Jullian's arms at the end of ''OGF'', but Jullian really wanted that atonement. Chang, for whatever reason, changed his mind and allowed Jullian to start a new life in LA. In order to make amends for his past crimes, Jullian involved himself in the life of his neighbor and her son, willingly giving up his life to help them out.]]

[[WMG: [[HotlineMiami Hotline Miami]] is a direct sequel to this movie]]
Both of the main characters are nameless, and wear a distinctive jacket. Both drive cool cars. Both are blonde. An early mission in the game mentions Jacket 'losing his girlfriend?' Hell, it's already a spiritual successor, why not make it an actual one?
