Story Discussion
I haven't seen a thread about this yet. But I'd like to discuss the story a bit.

In the intro cinematic (youtube it if you need a refresher), Lara is drowning in a sealed room on the Endurance, someone pulls her out. Who was that person? We see Roth on the far side of the ship afterwards. I assumed it was Jonah but there's no real indication of that.

This is also my first TR game, so what the heck happened to her parents again?

The story before is a mess, differs from game to game (at least what I read). That's why a reboot is needed I think. This one plays before all other TR games, how Lara becomes that badass known from the other TR games. I'm no TR expert but that's what I know :D

It's not literal, I think, she speaks about finding something (within yourself) that keeps you going. At that point she was about to give up, let go, halfway unconscious and dreaming but something inside her made her go on, and she 'pulled herself out' of the situation.

I don't think the game talks about her parents. Maybe they were eaten by one of those t-rex from the first game or drowned in that deep as hell pool she has in that big house.

In the backstory, it says Lara refuses to touch her parent's wealth because it would be like admitting they're gone. It's almost as if she doesn't confront big Psychologically traumatic events and prefers to occupy her thoughts with other things (Points to ending)

That's an interesting interpretation. I never thought of that.
