Humans can get shot
Key moments that set up the theme park's inscrutable firearm rules:
• In the premiere, the Man in Black shrugs off Teddy's hail of bullets.
• In Episode 2, Talulah Riley's robo-character tells William the pistols guests choose are "real enough, but you can't kill anyone you're not supposed to."
• In Episode 3, a bandit's shell sends William spinning to the ground. "I thought you said we couldn't get shot!" he says to Logan. "You can't get killed," Logan replies, adding that it "wouldn't be much of a game if they can't shoot back."
This summer, Nolan revealed that the bullets should generate more questions than the weapons. "In the original films, the guns won't operate on guests, [but] we felt the guests would want to have a more visceral experience," he explained. "So when they're shot, it has an impact. They're called 'simunitions,' [aka non-lethal training ammunition]. There's a bit of an impact, a bit of a sting, so it's not entirely consequence-free for the guests."
