As if the numerous characters and factions of the Fast & Furious franchise didn’t already pose a confusing flow-chart of relations, The Fate of the Furious has introduced us to the most intimidating villain of the series yet. With the eighth film looking to start the potentially final trilogy of films in the series, Charlize Theron’s Cipher looks to be the antagonist for this new group of action-packed installments.
Yet by the time she escaped the clutches of Dom, his family, and the DSS, one big question wasn’t answered: who the hell is she? Well, with our powers of deduction, and a heaping dose of salt, we’re going to try and call out who this mysterious force of digital nature is to the Fast & Furious world. If you’ve got your own theories, feel free to break out the notecards and yarn in our Comments section and let us know what you think!
With an extensive knowledge of computer hacking, and the usage of some high-tech tricks of her own, Cipher was pretty quick to find Mr. Nobody’s secret lair, also known as “Nowhere.” Sure, it could be assumed that the God’s Eye was her way in, but another theory feels like a better fit. Cipher could be a rogue DSS agent, disillusioned by the missions that she’s been sent on in order to secure the world from itself. Who else would want to hold the world’s governments “accountable” for its actions, and have access to all of the tools to do just that?
