Nancy Drew: The Silent Spy

People are getting super excited for Nancy Drew: The Silent Spy.  I've gotten several messages about it, and everyone wants to know what I think.



The preview says "everything you know about the accident is a lie". Presumably, the accident in question is the one in which Nancy's mother died.  I haven't read any of the books which describes the death of Nancy's mother in detail, so I have no idea if it was car accident, a bomb defusing accident, a potato peeling accident or what.

No, the thing that I find the most surprising about the preview is the revelation that Nancy's mother was named Kate.  Kate Drew!  Did we know that before?  I didn't know that before!  Kate Kate Kate Kate Kate.

O_O so catchy *shakes self* Ugh, this can be the new Nya- um.... Pop Tart Cat catch phrase! Anyways, I have mixed feelings as to whether or not Ka... Nancy's mom is alive, or if she is dead, if she was a spy, or an innocent civilian. Whether Samantha Quick is maybe a relative of Nancy's, or someone interested in helping.
I really can't wait until the release! o-o So excited O-o

I was thinking that Samantha Quick might be the Silent Spy. She works efficiently, no one seems to know who she is and she was annoyed when Nancy stole the diamond in Phantom of Venice.

My theory is that Samantha was Kate's friend. When kate knew she was in danger, she must have asked Samantha to protect and watch over Nancy in case anything were to happen to her. Now something big happened in Glasgow and the spy quickly wants to Nancy to come down.

It will be interesting to know what your theory is Michael! I would love to hear other people's theories as well.

I'm interested to hear about who you think the silent spy is. Everyone assumes the spy is female, but what if the spy is male? We should send the Nyan Kate idea to HeR Interactive!

Yay that's my name!! :D

Miriam said...

Her Interactive tried to find out what Nancy's mom's name was officially, but it was never given in any of the books, so they chose the name Kate. :)

I initially was pretty surprised when it was revealed that she was known as Kate. I think that I was expecting her to have a two-syllable name along with Carson, Hannah, Nancy, and Togo. But I warmed to the name. It's a sweet, loving motherly name. I'm fine with it. And I also would enjoy them doing variations on her name as they did with Jessie in GTH. Kate, Kathie, Katie, Katherine...

*spoilers for the Hardy Boys DS game*

Samantha Quick likely wasn't Kate's friend as it was revealed in the Hardy Boys DS game that Samantha Quick is a teenager about Nancy's age. Good hypothesis nonetheless!

Let's say Kate died in a car crash...
"everything you know is a lie"
Harry Potter!?
Henry Bolet?!

William D said...

Ok here is my theory.
Kate may have been or Spy, or a consultant. She was actually assassinated because she was pretty good at her job (XD duh she's Nancy's mom!) Anyway, Samantha quick is actually someone who heard of her death, and realised that her predecessor had something to do with Kate's death. She wants to help Nancy, and so she contacts Nancy and has her come down to Glasgow. Now, LittleJackalope said that number 13 on the hint list would be revealed next. Maybe it means some of the spies have fallen and become evil? (the ones that killed Nancy's mom?) Im just very excited about this game o-o

Technically, in the books, Nancy's mom's death is never mentioned in depth. We just know it happened when Nancy was three (in some books, when she was nine, I think). I am interested in seeing how Her traverses this uncharted territory!

The game doesn't have a strong enough plot like DED or GTH. It's an interesting idea to create something that never happened in the books, but it was poorly executed.

It's been a while since I read the books, but I believe Nancy's mom died of cancer or something of the sort. It never goes into detail, but I remember it mentioning that she was very sick.

Awesome job doing the Nyan Kate XD

Nancy's mom's death isn't mentioned in depth in any of the books. All that's said is that she died in a car crash when Nancy was ten (in the original story she was three, but majority of the current stories say Nancy was ten).
I wonder what type of flashbacks they'll include considering the fact that her mom isn't mentioned much in the original (or recent) stories...

I think the silent spy is the person responsible for Kate's dress death and is tricking nancy into helping him or her track down some sort of secret that Kate drew hid right before her death.
