Eastwood is a little easier to picture, insomuch as he does seem more "Vimes"y to me (YMMV.) That being said, I did find this portrait that Rob Perry did of him (I googled Clint Eastwood with eyepatch):
And honestly? I don't see it, though of course YMMV again. (And, of course, this is just an artist's interpretation of Clint Eastwood at this time, not an accurate representation, etc. etc. etc. but this is more how I feel like a Eastwood-Keel/Vimes would look.)
Well, plus some stubble, probably - it's been at least a day (?) since he last shaved his face. I think?
Honestly though, what I wonder is how many times Vimes has broken his nose. I think, if my 46 year old self popped into existence right now, I'd recognize her. I have a distinctive (to me) nose shape and a couple of facial markings that I would note. If Vimes's nose gets broken at any time between the two Sams, that could change the topography of his face enough that he wouldn't be immediately recognizable. I know that isn't specifically mentioned in the book, but IDK, I'd find it plausible.
If that makes sense lol.
Yes, but the other point I'm trying to make is, it escalated because Tris escalated it. She's the one who immediately snapped at him, and accused him of lying. She's the one that dismissed him multiple times, instead of acknowledging that maybe he at least thought he was telling the truth.
Tris was acting like Tris, but we've seen before that that does hurt people, and the people acting like it was totally a good thing are rubbing me the wrong way, because even if it was in character, that doesn't make the character right in their actions/choices, and I wish it was acknowledged more in the book that maybe she was a little bit in the wrong in this confrontation.
