I think she's no longer in
KansasCasablanca, but the room for some reason "emulates" the room (and the view from the windows, etc) she was at the end of the first Dreamfall. Maybe it was already "fake" then or she was kidnapped/moved to that observation room later.
Hmmmm, I'm of 2 minds on this In Book 1 Zoe joins up with her younger, bitchy self and launches herself 'home'. I tend to think that's her launching a dream to another place, in this case Propast, so Propast could very well be real; it's just that she isn't physically there in the normal sense. I think it's much the same as when she dreams herself to Marcuria. We don't think of Marcuria as not real, but Zoe is there interacting with people and things.
OTOH, there are signs that Propast isn't real. It's certainly possible that Propast is a 'memory aid' designed to help Zoe come out of her coma.
As far as the room Zoe is in, I'm not sure there's any reason to think it's a different room from the one she was in in DF: TLJ. Did we ever see the wall of that room that's opposite the bed? Is there any way we could know that there's an observation window in that wall?
Hello everybody! I started reading the forum a couple of days ago. I am simply delighted and amazed what great ideas you people have!
From everything I've read so far, these two comments I've quoted made me so curious that I went back to DF to search for some things.
The hospital room at the end of DF, in Casablanca hasn't got the window on the wall opposite Zoe's bed, so this supports the idea that she may have been kidnapped and put into a room designed to emulate the one in Casablanca. I've added a few screenshots here.
I'm not sure about Propast not being real. It seems to make more sense that Zoe dreamed herself there, as other people have mentioned. But at the same this does not seem to be the case. Let's say Propast is real. As Zoe mentions in her diary, after her session with dr Zelenka, she moved to Propast because one week after waking up from the coma she started discussing with Reza about moving in together. She felt rootles, he was already settled there and working for The Hand. But what doesn't make sense is why the two of them hadn't discussed the events from before her coma, and why Reza in DFC seems so laid back. This makes me think that indeed, the events in Propast are something of Zoe's making, not an actual reality.
