* We learn that Sherry Birkin's life has not significantly improved since we last saw her in RE2. With both of her MadScientist parents dead, she spends the rest of her childhood and early adulthood being held by the US government as a test subject. It turns out that the G-Virus was still inside her, despite her being ostensibly cured in RE2. The only upside of all this is that the G-Virus grants Sherry a HealingFactor.

When the president lunges forward, he has to yell "Mr. President!" before a shot rings out. And it's not revealed who the president attacked, or who shot.
