- Meanwhile, Ariadne learns the truth about what happened to Mal in a series of flashbacks with Cobb.
- Cobb wanted to explore the world of dreams but they went too deep and landed up in limbo where they were stuck for fifty years (so how old is Cobb really?).
- To deal with it, Mal made herself think it was real (which is a bit puzzling seeing as they were quite literally gods, making whatever they wanted).
- When they woke up, Mal was convinced she was dreaming… and killed herself to get back to the 'real' world.
- Also, because she was feeling extra thoughtful, she wrote letters making it seem like Cobb killed her.
