We all know her. The female "helper" throughout NFS Most Wanted 2005.
What's interesting is her "lore", her "storyline".
In various media sites throughout the internet, there are various beta stories, which even refer to Mia as your "rival".
"As many of you know, Josie Maron will be playing as Mia Townsend, and she will be one of your biggest rivals on the street."
"All Mia will tell you about herself is that she loves to win and hates to lose. Find out more about her when you make eye contact with her at 180 MPH."
See what I mean? In late 2004, when NFS Most Wanted was announced, EA actually referred to Mia as a "rival", quite possibly - a blacklist member!
Hell, we even have gameplay of that race RECORDED AND UPLOADED to YouTube!
One of the races was supposed to be a Drag Race, possibly the 2nd one.
Take a look:
After the Drag Race, you're seemingly taken in to a pursuit and Mia seemingly disappears.
There's one more thing that supports this theory.
The "Pre-Production" Blacklist.
Now, there's no screenshot of the "Pre-Production" Blacklist, but the list was seemingly like this:
1. Clarence Callahan
2. Wes Allen
3. Mia Townsend
4. Toru Sato
5. Hector Domingo
6. Ronald McCrea
7. Eddie Lew
8. Joe "JV" Vega
9. Jordan Ka
10. Lou Park
11. Jade Barrett
What do you think, fellas?
I think it would be possible that Mia had a bit more in to the story than the final game. It's still a great game, but Mia as a Blacklist racer to earn her help would've been cool too.
