This might have been covered before, but I wanted to await the DVD (Instant replay/Slo-Mo) for confirmation. Needless to say, I’m still confused.
OPERATION KINO-Erik The Bartender
Upon inital viewing, I though Erik was collaborating with Bridgette in the basement (The way he threw the innocent, female maid to play with the Germans at table #2 to keep the Germans distracted. And how he sneakily reached for his shotgun after Archie’s cover was blown)
During the shootout, he clearly aims his shotgun at the Allies’ table (*Possibly shooting at Hugo) and causing “Basterd Wicki” to kill him in the process. So what’s the deal? Anybody have any idea?
*Regarding Hugo–My first two theatrical viewings had me believe that the female German instantly killed Hugo. She definetly shoots & wounds him, but as the scene plays out, he’s still
very much alive and clears out the rest of table #2 with his pistol. But the fast-editing seems to say that Erik’s shotgun brings him to an end. Any other ideas?
