* ''Spectre'' establishes that Silva may have been doing missions on contract for Spectre, since he was already rogue when he got sold out by M.


Also played by Ralph Fiennes, Justin Quayle fakes [[spoiler: his own death]]at the end of The Constant Gardener. A [[spoiler: funeral]] is staged where the conspiracy involving pharmaceutical companies that Justin uncovered is [[spoiler:revealed]] by his late wife Tessa's cousin Ham. He obtains another false passport off Ham and changes his name to Gareth Mallory, makes up a back-story about joining the SAS and serving in Northern Ireland and is eventually promoted to Chairman of the Intelligence and Security Committee.

* When Tanner is establishing Mallory's RetiredBadass credentials, he says Mallory was a "Lieutenant-Colonel in the Hereford Regiment." Normally, [[BritsWithBattleships British Army regiments]] are associated with counties or regions (e.g. Scots Guards or Hampshire Regiment) not towns or cities. The SAS HQ is in Hereford, and "Hereford Regiment" is a plausible nickname for the SAS.

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 awesomeness by being proactive in his guarding, while his father is "retired" to guarding the estate of {{MI6}}'s best agent.

* He has to seduce women in the course of missions, but that doesn't mean he's not really attracted to women. It could be the same with men. He could very well actually be bisexual (but not interested in Silva because, after all, Silva's trying to kill him.)

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

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.

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 the casting choice of Javier Bardem, since if Silva came from Gibraltar, and British citizenship, he could work 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.
