Isn't that the same thing? As for stuff you didn't get: Spoiler 1) M dying. Y'know, she was an older lady. Maybe her wound was severe, maybe it wasn't. But as a senior citizen, she wouldn't have the same stamina and constitution to endure the shock and prolongued blood loss as that of a younger person in the same conditon. 2) SIlva's motive was very well laid out when he was "captured". He gave a solid explanation of it both to M and Bond: M betrayed him by giving him up to the Chinese government in exchange for seven or so captured agents. The bad he was a bad seed made that decision easier for her I guess. 3) Don't blame the screenwriters for Bond's home being called Skyfall. IIRC, Fleming came up with the name (Skyfall Lodge). As for why Bond didn't care about it being blown up, he said it himself: he always hated the place. Now what I didin't get is how in the actual frak did Bond survive Moneypenny's shot and the fall afterwards. And where was that second gunshot wound afterwards?
