2. Did Mother tell the truth?

Yes and no. But, for the most part, she did. These are her lies and truths (that we can remember):

There was no accidental tragedy caused by humans that destroyed life most of human life. There also never was any danger in breathing the air or simply being outside. Well, that may have not be entirely a lie, actually. With all the chaos happening, those who survived are likely not safe to be around.

Still, Mother was not honest about why humanity has been wiped out. She is the reason why, and eventually does admit it when Daughter confronts her.

What Mother never lied about is her love for humanity. Repopulating the Earth and human life truly is Mother’s priority. But, there’s a half-truth here. Mother only values the lives of those who are worthy of being part of the peaceful Earth she is trying to create.

This is why Mother incinerates the second child and kills Woman. But she doesn’t harm Daughter, realizing she’s worthy. This proves Mother really does have good intentions for humanity in her robotic mind.
