Headscratchers / Friday the 13th Part V: A New Beginning

  • How far did Eddie go to wash up to not be able to hear Tina's screaming?
  • Why the hell didn't Roy Burns tell anyone that Joey was his son? If he did then it would prevent this whole mess.
    • How? How would it prevent the whole thing?
    • For starters, Roy would have been given custody of Joey, who he knew was his son thanks to the picture in his wallet. The entire plot is a case of disproportionate retribution, just because someone who knew he had a child made no effort to find out what had happened to them.
    • Embarrassment, maybe? Regardless, they outright say at the end of the movie that we'll probably never know.
  • Why did Roy go after everyone at Pinehearst EXCEPT for the guy who actually killed his son? Hell, you think Victor would have been his first target.
    • Well, Vic was probably in police custody at the time. It would be harder to reach him and maybe he didn't want to kill members of law enforcement
  • Of all the places to send Tommy to, why send him to a halfway house near Crystal Lake? Wouldn't it be healthier for him to be kept far away from there?
    • In the second movie, Alice had been advised by her therapist to move there to confront her demons. Same logic, I guess.
