The Apostles had the plutonium the entire time after the alley scene Initially, John Larke and the Apostles were not working together. The Apostles were clients of Larke. The White Widow had brokered a deal between the Apostles and John Larke for plutonium. Though do to the nature of this business, all communication is through the White Widow. Presumably ...

Homer's Odyssey is the story of Homer's long struggle to return home after the Trojan war. In Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation, Hunt is being hunted and he is far away from home. This is just a simple throwback to MI:5 by Christopher McQuarrie. Tom Cruise says to the Telegraph “At the beginning of the film, the book The Odyssey was chosen for a very ...

I would say you could watch it without knowing anything about the previous films. There isn't much continuation from the previous films. What little there is is pretty much explained. Although, the biggest plot point is the origin of the Apostles who are the main antagonists of MI: Fallout. Spoilers for MI: Rogue Nation and small spoilers for MI: Fallout ...

Totally Agree with Sanpaco's comment - that scene was there for increasing tension of action as well August dived there recklessly and was struct by lightning. Additionally, I don't think August really knows that he was struck by lightning and passed out, nor that Hunt actually saved him by providing his oxygen tank. You can see that in the dialog after ...

..and clearly shows that the one leaving the room is Benji, not the real Solomon. Since Benji in the mask is identical to Solomon this is not the case. We don't see Benji leave the room as such... we him stand up (which he would have to do to swap with Solomon), the next time it's just someone who looks like Solomon that we are supposed to think is Benji. ...

Henry Cavill as August Walker, a CIA assassin working for the Special Activities Division tasked with monitoring Ethan and his team. He is also the real John Lark who contacted the Apostles to steal the plutonium cores. Per Wikipedia under the Cast section.

It is hinted in the film that Sloan had went directly to Alan Hunley when Walker told Sloan that Ethan Hunt is John Lark with the doctored evidence of the cell phone he retrieved in Paris. My evidence for this comes when Alan Hunley confronts Hunt that the CIA suspects Hunt is Lark. Walker is there to witness this. Hunt incapacitates Hunley and tells Walker ...

As a spy, maybe you have to always assume you're being setup or that the situation will go poorly and have backup plans? It seems feasible that since he had infiltrated the CIA that others could have as well, or that he turned other agents to his side. It's possible Lark anticipated his boss at the CIA finding out and orchestrated his men being in the squad ...

Because he wants people to understand ....and, in his mind, bring about world peace He says.. "There has never been peace without first a great suffering. The greater the suffering, the greater the peace. See, this will unite them. When they read this manifesto they'll understand." Now, he can post it on the internet but that doesn't guarantee ...

Erica Sloan did not intend for Walker/Lark to take out Ethan's team and escape. It wasn't his team rather than her's/the CIA's. She didn't actually know that Walker/Lark had men amongst her team. Granted, it's not entirely clear how Lark managed to do this, but also not impossible for him to have his own men inside the CIA or just replacing Sloan's ...

Lark, in the context of this universe, is supposed to be a terrifying figure of anarchy/change (see his manifesto), who also works with Solomon Lane, who heads up the crime organization The Syndicate. Keep in mind also, that the White Widow describes that her clients require the extraction of a political prisoner as the price for the two remaining cores. ...

I think that 90 seconds is just the amount of time it takes to take out the tracker. The reason they wanted to remove the tracker was to implant their own tracker into Lane. Lane, should he have gotten free, would've removed the tracker himself but now if he were to be freed he wouldn't know that he still had a tracker on him. This new tracker having been ...

As pointed out by eduffy in comments, this character is decoy Lark. Medium.com also, have nice details about the character and also provide the information that he is played by stunt actor Liang Yang .

So there is a fun theory floating out there that's kind of fun that every time that Ethan Hunt has died (and he's died twice briefly in the franchise) he's returned from the dead with a new skill or ability. Given that he's slipped briefly from this veil he perhaps has developed powers of prognostication from his travels... Also bear in mind that in the ...

I won't be completing backing up below theory, but that is the closest that I have currently found - Based on Mission Impossible Fallout's Wiki page the plot section mentions the story. Let me break it to you, Intitally, in the alley scene, when Ethan saves Luther's life he looses the Plutonium Cores, which is later obtained by Apostles. (they get it from ...

Ilsa Faust said: “People have been sent here to kill Lark. Contractors. Paid assassins.” And Alan Hunley said If Lark isn't there in two hours the White Widow would sell the package to the highest bidder. So we can assume these contractors and paid assassins were hired by countries/terrorist organizations to kill Lark so they could bid on the ...

Henry's character is John Lark. He might have lured Ethan into impersonating Lark because he knew that Lark's life might be in danger in that scene. Ref, http://missionimpossible.wikia.com/wiki/August_Walker Now about the question, The person who got killed in the washroom might be another guy impersonating as John Lark to meet White Widow and get hold ...

Faust was there to keep Lark alive for the reason that he'll be assigned/hired to kill Lane. But since Ethan compromised the plan, Faust was forced to kill Lark in the bathroom because Ethan is in danger of being shot. That's why Faust was assigned to eliminate Lane since that's the price she needed to pay for saving Ethan. So that's why it validates that ...
