I just had to peruse the "explanation of all explanations" of Memento, if only to examine the unstable mental condition of its author.
A. All three woman, Jorja Fox, Carrie-Anne Moss and Harriet Harris are the same woman...Leonard's wife!
It is explained that Leonard dated Natalie in high school
B. The "clue of all clues", the "Prime" Clue...is a scene in the hotel in B&W....gasp! a reflection of Leonard!!!!
This explains everything and proves that all of the lesser facts are accurately explained.
C. Leonard's first wife died of an accidental overdose, also "because of bad drugs".
Leonard's second wife...SPOILER ALERT!!.......was strangled in the bathroom...by Leonard himself!!!
(So really, Leonard is hunting for himself. The guy he saw killing his wife was his own reflection. You fools missed that.)
D. Leonard killed Burt at some point.
E. Dodd's real name is ...John Gammell. You thought he shot 'Teddy' in the head, but it was really Dodd.
Leonard calls 'Teddy' to come over. He is really in the hotel room, not the warehouse you see.
The real 'Teddy' is the old guy in the bar who spits in Leonard's drink.
Leonard shares a hotel room with 'Teddy'...who is a bad cop...who is Dodd...whom Leonard also kills.
F. (This should clarify it all for you in order.)
1. Lenny hears Teddy in the hotel shower. He doesn't hit him with a bottle. He shoots and kills him.
2. Lenny is put in a mental hospital.
3. Lenny has no memories, so he fakes it by making up a story about his wife and is released.
4. Natalie is a nurse at the hospital and takes him home. ( I think he marries this Natalie)
5. Natalie goes into the bathroom.
6. Leonard forgets....hears Natalie in the shower and chokes her with the plastic shower curtain.
7. Lenny gets arrested and is put back in the mental hospital.
8. Lenny escapes through a window. He 'sees' the hospital as a tattoo parlor.
9. Officer Dodd chases after him, shooting at poor Lenny.
10. Lenny runs into the bar (it's really a gay bar...you missed that? )
11. Lenny thinks he is in Jimmy's clothes but it is really a hospital gown.
12. Natalie takes him home and gives him Jimmy's clothes.
13. Lenny strangles Natalie in the shower.
14. Lenny starts hunting the man who killed Natalie in the shower.
15. I'm going to stop here as I doubt anyone will have read down this far.
