Theories on what's to come!
« on: September 18, 2010, 09:07:28 PM »
Episode 2 gave quite a bit more information about what's going on in the Land of the Green Isles and to the Royal Family. What do you think it means? What do you think might happen next?

I'm not sure if this is obvious, but it's something I came up with:

I think that we're led to believe that the guy

Those are all some interesting thoughts.  I didn't even get the Leo reference until you mentioned it.  Now I feel like an idiot for not realizing sooner.  I also liked the thought about choosing the darkness or light.

Outside of that, I'm also intrigued as to whether

Alright, enough spoiler tags!  Finish the episode, everyone, so I can stop using them and just go back to writing in full, unhidden, paragraph form!

I have a feeling that Alexander has been turned into a Cat, then he Fisicly Wakes Up with Cassima Screaming and Fainting, then Alex is the New Companion to Graham.  :suffer:

I still think Alexander was mind controlled and brought upstairs to undo the spell on Manannan.

I mentioned some of this in Doon's thread but I figured I'd bring it up here.  I noticed in episode one that the narrator discussed Graham's fighting evil and the fact that he never succeeded in wiping evil out entirely.  And in Episode 2 Graham has said things to that effect as well.  And with the talk in Episode 2 about Graham making an ultimate choice between good and evil, that all seems to indicate to me that Graham will be sacrificing himself to end the profound evil of the Black Cloaks.  I think his ultimate choice will be whether he sacrifices himself and ends evil or whether he does nothing, which allows him to live out his life with his family but also allows evil to continue.  As I said in Doon's thread, I think Graham's ultimate sacrifice will be to seal his soul in the Zodia stone like the Silver Cloaks did and keep the evil bound for another thousand years.  So Graham will sacrifice himself to finally banish evil and also become an eternal guardian for all that is good and righteous.

Now, on to other things as well (so it doesn't look like I'm just reposting a theory so that people will pat me on the head and give me a cookie) I am interested in seeing what is happening with time going backwards.  That is odd.  I'm also wondering if that's what happened to the note on the pawn shop, though that whole note vanished, not just the printing.  Likewise, why does the fact that this evil has been released have the effect of running time backwards?  I'd imagine more of a nature withering and dying effect, like when Malicia did her thing in KQ7.  Time running backwards must have a separate purpose, but why, and who is doing it?  And I don't think it's to make Mannanan a human again.  I think him showing up as human in Alexander's nether world is simply his projection of himself, not actually Mannanan.

I've also been wondering if it's possible that some of the Silver Cloaks have been reincarnated into new bodies, namely Alexander and Rosella.  This would explain why the Silver Cloak souls no longer bind the evil in the Zodia stone and also explain why the royal twins are so powerful.

You just blew my mind. As I may have said earlier, your theory of Graham resealing the Zodia Stone and becoming a guardian would complete the series very nicely, in my opinion.

As for time running backwards explaining the disappearing items, that makes sense as well, though I think I recall a team member saying that the time running backwards aspect was cut from Episodes 1-5. Can anyone clarify?

Well, if it were cut, then it's REALLY weird that things are disappearing, etc. 

It's there still. How & why have changed in revisions of the script though. You'll learn more later.  :suffer:
