Silent Hill 3 Confessional Room Analysis
The Silent Hill 3 Confessional scene in the church towards the end of the game presents a contradiction to the player: In order to forgive the confessor the player must also forgive Claudia. As such, who the confessor happens to be is not of particular importance but rather the moral dilemma it represents to Heather. As a result, forgiving the confessor means that Heather cannot justify killing Claudia.
Who is in the Confession Booth?
The most common argument is that Dahlia, from the first Silent Hill game, is the person in the confessional booth. The woman in the booth certainly appears to have a story very similiar to Dahlia’s, but whether it is actually Dahlia in there or not is irrelevent. In order to forgive the woman it infers that Claudia Wolf is also forgiven for killing Harry and her treatment of Heather.
