Clearly the assassin had to learn his {{badass}}ness from somewhere, and anyone who can kill mooks armed with assault rifles with an [[AncestralWeapon old hunting shotgun]] is very good at killing people. The younger Kincade is just following the family of awesomenss by being proactive in his guarding, while his father is "retired" to guarding the estate of {{MI6}}'s best agent.

** Turns out Silva had become affiliated with SPECTRE sometime before the events of ''Skyfall'', and that Quantum was just a faction within SPECTRE.

* The "THINK ON YOUR SINS" message seems to suggest this. One anagram of that phrase is "YOUR SON ISNT IN HK".



For those who don't know, it's a British territory at the southern tip of Spain. That would explain why a Spaniard was working for MI6.

* Being shot twice in the same day, falling off a bridge hundreds of feet tall, and being thrown into a river doesn't really much room for "living." The intro scene was Bond's stay in hell. James himself said his hobby was "Resurrection." He just crawled out about a month after he died, because it is [[LikeABadassOutOfHell James Bond.]]

Added DiffLines:

[[WMG: AmbiguouslyBi and ExactWords]]
* Silva's somewhat clumsy come-on, and Bond's response, caused some minor turmoil amongst longtime fans of the franchise. However, it makes perfect sense that Bond has had to HoneyTrap male targets before. This is a man whose job involves being shot, stabbed, beaten, tortured, poisoned and subjected to even more esoteric torments. Having to get it on with another dude in the line of duty would barely merit a "meh!" from the likes of him. Especially since his AnythingThatMoves libido would probably enable him to perform at least as well as straight performers who do gay porn manage to do.
* That said, this may not happen often. Indeed, it may have only happened ''once''. Bond's ExactWords were that it wouldn't be his ''first'' time. That does not preclude it only being the ''second''. Bond may not habitually have sex with men to anywhere near the degree he does with women. But it might have come up at least once in the course of a mission.

For those of you unaware, the theory attempts to explain Bond's long career and multiple actors by saying that "James Bond" is a cover identity passed from agent to agent. What we saw at the beginning of ''Film/CasinoRoyale'' was the latest Bond earning his 00 status. Bond's comments about resurrection in this film may indicate that the film will address the theory.

It is really unclear how Bond could go from an agent with "no kills", as he is described in the ActionPrologue of ''Film/CasinoRoyale'', to the ruthlessly effective- we might even say "brutally" effective- killer he is only a little later and through all three Craig films. In real life, killing just 2 men doesn't transform most people that completely- and Bond clearly has experience doing what he does. It is almost inconceivable that he has never killed anyone before. Also, in {{Skyfall}}, we see that field agents like Eve are ordered to shoot people in the line of duty- and if she had killed Patrice, it would not have implied that she was halfway to "00" status herself. So, what exactly does the "License To Kill" or "00" status mean?\\\
"00" agents in this mythology must be the ones who carry out assassinations for MI-6, as opposed to killing in self-defense or combat operations (obviously, you couldn't forbid a non-"00" to kill an enemy that was trying to kill him!). ''That'' must be the meaning of "kills" in the ''Film/CasinoRoyale'' prologue; premeditated, targeted assassinations. It would also account for some of the disparities in {{Skyfall}}, where Bond is portrayed as a long-service agent, only 2 films after ''Film/CasinoRoyale''. So, Bond was already an experienced field operative before the events of the film, and had killed enemies in combat or self-defense, "in the rough and tumble of it" as it were; he just hadn't been sent on an assassination contract yet. (Just like Silva, who was an experienced agent and a ruthless killer, but never explicitly stated to have been a "00".) It was Bond's long experience that ''qualified'' him to be sent on an assassination- 'M' would hardly send a rookie, would she? And once you're a "00", with a license to kill, maybe you get to decide who needs to be assassinated on your own and tell 'M' about it afterwards? Which would be why MI-6 is so careful about promoting "00"s in the first place- because, as we see with Bond, once they have a license to kill, they may use it even when you don't want them to.

** Technically in CasinoRoyale it isn't stated that two kills automatically make you a 00, simply that it's a minimum requirement.
