    HOLY FUCK KOJIMA YOU WONDERFUL BASTARD!

    There is a door on the upper levels of the first medical platform (which you are required to build) that you are able to enter. Go check it out, and prepare for your jaw to hit the floor.

    Yeah, I found that this morning, pretty crazy. Though one of the trailers did spoil it.

    Paz is actually alive. They got both of the bombs out of her at the end of Ground Zeroes. going back and watching the cutscene you can see how well it was cut to hide all the clues.

    She didn't. Just before she jumps a helicopter falls just out of frame, and it is revealed that it actually shot a rocket at their chopper, and Paz survived the fall into the ocean. Also you can see that Snake says something just before she jumps, but it's not audible. This was probably him saying that they got both of them. Also the part of the scene where they discover the second bomb is the only point in any cutscene in all of Ground Zeroes that there is a hard cut. It was really just perfectly done.

    @alucitary: More spoilers on this topic below:

    If you get all the photos she pulls the bomb out of her stomach and it explodes right next to Snake. He then wakes up, after seemingly passing out. It seems like her being alive again was all a dream.

    For what it's worth, I didn't import a GZ save. This door is open, but there are signs posted that don't let me progress past them. I might just be stupid though.

    People also need to be sure to boot up the game and visit MB on their bday. Or at least the bday you enter at the start of the game :D

    There's a door at the end of a short hall right in front of you. You have to press the button next to the door to get in.

    You might have to do the side op where you capture a survivor from the old mother base.

    Oh yeah, that's definitely required. The picture Miller mentions and that you can show to Paz afterwards is one of the rewards from that.

    @bocam: I've been trying to do that (I've already seen what happens in some gameplay demo they put out, but still), only I keep getting caught in the rain and it washes everything off. Not sure if that counts or I just haven't waited long enough yet, but I wanted to run around as a blood-soaked grime beast and the game doesn't want me to :(

    You should mention in your post about having to do that one side op for this to unlock.

    @cronus42: Question for the spoiler stuff you posted

    Where do you get the other photos? I have the first one that Miller picks up in the cutscene, but nothing else to show Paz yet. Do I need to complete more of the side ops to extract old motherbase staff?

    Edit: Ahh okay, I figured it out.

    You get a new photo for each successive Extract Wandering Motherbase Soldier side op you complete, but you can only show Paz one photo per visit.

    You could probably just do a bunch of side missions or something in Afghanistan, pretty sure it never rains there, just sand storms.

    You have to find one of your wandering men. it's a side OP.

    I'm not sure how I feel about this development. Seems like some hard backpedalling.

    I thought this was actually a sweet reveal! It's cool when we flash back to Ground Zeroes and the way that explosion scene is presented is awesome. Camera pans down to reveal : a dude with a rocket!

    Man, so spoilers for later in this quest line (I'd shown her about 4 photos by this point), some guards on the medical platform were talking about how "the Boss has been spending a lot of time in that room that's under construction lately", so I'm about 99% sure this is all in Big Boss's head now. Also the part where there is always sunlight streaming in the window no matter the time of day/weather outside and you can't use your iDroid.

    Oh but I guess they reminded me of Nuke the cat and how he probably simultaneously exploded, burned and drowned to death in the attack on MSF... DD is a better mascot anyway ;-;

    The surprising part of this for me was how you sort of have to stumble into this side plot (if you'd call it that) on your own, rather than the game telling you "hey go here and do this". As for the side plot itself, unfortunately it was shown in one of the later official trailers, so the impact was lessened (for me at least). The wrap up was nice though.
