What John Wick Fans Don't Know About The Continental
Once John Wick steps inside the Continental, it quickly becomes apparent that there is a lot to the underworld in which he operates. From its enigmatic proprietor to the huge number of interesting individuals who roam its secret rooms, the Continental is the key to John Wick's world.
Generally speaking, the guests who check into John Wick's Continental Hotel are allowed to do as they please, which is probably to be expected given the consequences we see of telling super-assassins what to do. They can take advantage of a variety of services, enjoy a meal or a refreshing drink, and even get patched up with some top-notch medical care that even the nicest hotels don't usually offer in-house. There is, however, one activity that is expressly prohibited on the grounds.
And when they say "business," they're not talking about accounting.
Yes, the Continental is a safe haven for all the assassins therein. Or it would be, if we didn't see someone breaking that rule in every movie. Ms. Perkins takes a contract on John in the first film, and John himself crosses the line at the end of the second. The penalty for violating this sacred rule? Well, this isn't a world full of assassins who don't fulfill their job description. In fact, John's violation of this rule is what sets up the storyline of John Wick 3: Parabellum.
Since the Continental Hotel is our first introduction to the larger criminal underworld of the John Wick universe, it would be easy for us to get lost upon entering. Luckily, the hotel's concierge helps to introduce the audience to this mysterious universe. His name is Charon, and it's a very fitting name for someone with his occupation. Keep watching the video to see what John Wick fans don't know about The Continental.
