Re: Looper - Grade, Review, Discuss, ect.
He doesn't. The system was set up by the previous mobsters; he just took it over, and is liquidating the loopers because one of them killed his mother.
Couple of problems wit that logic:
-The Rainmaker knows a Looper is going to kill his mother so makes sure Loopers are being sent back? This is basically just making sure his mother gets killed. Which would make sense if his goal is to make sure his life unfolds the way it did.
-Since Gordon-Levitt Joe killed Willis Joe in the original timeline, that would mean there must be another Looper who will get sent back and kill Cid's mother, if indeed seeing her get killed by a Looper is what makes him become the Rainmaker.
