You'd think she would know the whole crew on the ship, even the maintenance crew that worked below deck. And if she means he's a good guy, unlike the psycho Lara encountered, this would mean Sam also encountered some dangerous people on the island already and avoided them. It's all just such a horrendous mess.

Regardless, the fact that in both scenarios, both girls just fall asleep with this random stranger is dumb beyond belief. Well done Rhianna. *Claps*
Sam does play into the dumb asian girl stereotype here. I think both versions are pretty bad tbh. Also Mathias's dialogue and voice acting sounds like I'm watching a kids show. Nothing is subtle.

Compare this scene to The Last Of Us where David and Ellie meet. The contrast is striking.

Lara is obviously mistrusting of Mathias, but she makes no effort to stand between him and Sam in order to better protect Sam?

I prefer this original scene by a large margin, however that doesn't say much as both scenes are pitifully written.

Edit: ahhhh Sam's orange the memories... :')

Something tells me CD didn't want the audience to know Matthias was the villain at this point, hence the rewrite. Not like it wasn't obvious, but then again, they acted like Anna being evil was a plot twist, too.

Honestly I did not thought Ana is gonna be evil. In fact I never thought she is gonna appear in the game except the first cutscene she is in. Thought she is there to set up Lara’s trip to Syria and that is it.

Yeah I think that they wanted to preserve the illusion that the guy who captured Lara was an isolated case.
