In the two pictures the Observer uploaded to Noah's Twitter account to remind him of his impending doom (on November 11th), there are hidden messages of encouragement: "Not if I can help it", and "Do not worry. I will stop him."
Alex from Dark Harvest checking in with Noah during the livestream to make sure he was okay.
Despite Noah's earlier statements about the events of the November 11th livestream making him wish he was dead, he tweeted on Thanksgiving that he was "[t]hankful for a second chance".
Someone on Formspring asked what Noah would have done differently, if he had it all to do over again:
Talked to Milo more.
Noah's final words in "The Live Stream Incident", spoken in private after he ends the livestream:
Noah: (Tearing up.) Firebrand...me... Thank you. Thank you. (Turns off camera as he begins to sob.)
Leave it to Firebrand to answer him in a way that's awesome, hilarious and heartwarming all at once:
"You're fucking welcome."
Moreover, it shows that under the frightening Collective "persona" and burn-scarred face...it's still our Noah in there.
In Extraordinary Circumstaces, Noah manages to open the briefcase. As he goes through it, the video distorts several times, leaving on to think the Observer is coming. Noah gets more and more excited as he discovers several of Milo's belongings, including a letter from Milo addressed to him. Just as he thinks he's gone through everything, he discovers there's a fake black panel and removes it, finding several thousand dollars in cash. Just when you think it couldn't get any more heartwarming, Firebrand shows up in the flesh, and actually speaks for the first time. Turns out he was the one causing the distortion in the video.
Noah: Uh... I... I'm rich.
Firebrand: It wasn't easy, but you can thank me later. Bye for now.
In a more subtle case, this is the first video in a long time that nothing bad ends up happening. Sure, you get a few teases, such as the distortion and Noah's silence before showing the money to the camera, but it all ends up being subverted.
