But there was an article saying that this Barkat track has a purpose to move the story forward.
I still fail to understand what that purpose was if she was dead the whole time.
Agree the CVs have kept the name of Villa and Hotel as Barkat. She may turn up one day. But I think her entry wont make any difference. Till now no clue has been given about Barkat. She may turn up as a existing character. Just a hazard guess.
