- Clara Fei-Fei: Thanks to @matthatt0n he explained the flute scene to me was a homage to Hamlet. This particular scene being homaged is when Hamlet is aware of his friends trying to trick him, seems that Walter wasn't aware of David's intentions. If only he knew Hamlet (https://www.facebook.com/yutani.studio/posts/1079404439218546, 11th April 2021)
