However, in spite of being birthed as a brand-new much better person, Comstock evidently still receives all of his pessimism from his past as Booker Dewitt.

When supplied a work to acquire a girl as well as bring her to New York in order to “CLEAN OFF HIS DEBTS”, Booker just simply nodded along and didn’t question that work.

So even though Booker takes care of to get rid of Comstock by crashing his head on the side of water fountain and also drowning him in the water, Comstock will still live in many various realities.
Better means to stop Comstock from living once more in all various realities is to stop him from being born in the first place. As well as the very first time Comstock was birthed or produced was when Booker chose to APPROVE the baptism. Elizabeth then opens the tear as well as brings Booker to the specific reality when he is still taking the baptism in the river.
