Well, Entry # 44 is up. It reminds me of the earlier entries.

Not sure what to make of this development, but it gives me a few more theories.

Definitely establishes, more than last entry, that Alex is being controlled, or at the very least being taken somewhere.

Fantastic entry.
I, admittedly, cringed.

Several times.

I'm definitely thinking the operator symbol draws Slendy out...

But... that's about all I'm understanding from this entry. sdghfjksdhf That and this could possibly be the last we see of Alex?

Im glad Slendy has been getting more screen time. But I wanna know what that guy wearing the bug mask was all about! Im guessing Alex lives with Slendy? Or maybe Slendy is paying rent to stay there?

Ok...hm...

First off, that chest cam has got to go. That is one of the ugliest things I have ever seen a man wear. If anything Slendy is just desperately trying to show them what true style looks like.
= No Moobs.

I approve. Good entry.

Good entry is good... But honestly?

I still haven't been scared by an entry in a Long time... the mystery of the earlier ones, the 'wtf is going on here?!' made it so much more compelling.

This is becoming a good Story... but it's just that - a Story. I don't feel scared by it anymore... Just enthralled.

I actually agree with Rythmear. Don't get me wrong, seeing Slendy is good and all, but I felt no adrenaline rush, at all, really. You know, the sort of "OH SHIT YOU GUYS. GET THE FUCK OUT OF THERE!" reaction that I felt when Jay was in the woods. But maybe it's just me. Alex's little outfit was a bit...*cough*...distracting for me. (Seriously Alex, always having to film yourself is bad enough, but now you've got to wear the camera? Seriously?)

All things considered...Alex, buddy, get your act together man. You were doing so well :(

I thought the entry was pretty interesting. It had the feel to one of the earlier entries...I'm a bit disappointed though, because I wasn't on edge. Once. The effects were nice, and there Mr. Slender was sick, but...I don't know. Something was missing for me. :\

There's one simple problem with the newer entries...

They're Predictable.

In the earlier ones, they were pretty much either pure filler, or they were tense ALL the time, so you could never tell if there was going to be a slender appearance or not.

Like that one where he appears right at the start, walks into his room - but nothing is seen besides a bloody face for the rest of the video.

Or the first ever Masky epsiode (which I still use as my go-to video for scaring gullible friends) - the Whole video was so scary, you were waiting for something to appear Every time he opened a door... the buildup was epic.

This one? It feels... and I Hate using this word in a Slender Man context.... .... ... Routine.

Phone call, wonky camera, oh look he's coughing blood... Oh now he's scribbling on the paper, good job - oh I hear the tape distorting... How long until THERE he is, excellent people, that's a wrap!

I miss the days when the footage tearing didn't automatically mean he was about to appear. There were plenty of episodes where the audio and visuals spazzed out but you never actually Saw him.

These days it's just like 'Great... Operator, bro, wtf is your actual purpose? Who is your target? Didn't you want to kill Alex before? Or is it just that you're bored out of your skull and want to fuck with some teenagers?'

....

Look at me bitching like a 14 year old girl... Slender Man, you sold out - it used to be about scaring the holy jesus out of people. Now you just show up to the concerts because you're being paid to, it's so phoned in...

Although I have to say, I would like a little bit more actual story per entry. It seems like most entries are giving us one clue/useful piece of info at a time, and occasionally a bit of "WTFOMG scary stuff!" I want to be genuinely surprised, either accompanied by or even independently of being startled.

Yeah, I'm kind of with the idea that there needs to be more plot development and some important things to go down. I wasn't really scared, I just had my "Oh shit..." moment towards the end for understandable reasons. TTA has been as cryptic as ever. Jay's watching tapes again and not having shit going on IRL. Not saying I haven't enjoyed this season, but there needs to be some more occurrences and reveals to help satisfy the audience.

I loved Entry #43 for that, because it made my head buzz with possibilities and scared me at the end, while this one was just anti-climatic in comparison. This one has some speculation going on for it, but I felt my curiosity peak more when The Operator appeared than feeling terrified.

All things considered I'm not big on the idea that the operator symbols summon Slender Man somehow. It seems from Entry #26 that he can be summoned, but I get the impression that if he's going to turn up in Alex's bedroom then he can do it of his own volition without anyone drawing anything. What I took from Alex's scribbling both here and in the original Marble Hornets tapes was more of a semi-automatic obsessive-compulsive response to ol' Slim's influence. Like his head's on fire and he needs to spill it out somehow. If you've ever seen the art of the schizophrenic Adolph Wolfli, I imagine it's a little like that

Of course this still doesn't explain what the operator symbol is for

When I first saw Alex's shadow I thought it was slendy and I panicked.
I'm such a wuss.

My thoughts throughout the video:

Spoiler:
 

More importantly, how did he survive 43?

Oh, this was definitely a great entry. We've returned sort of to an older style which is nice and it's brought up a few theories and reinforced some too.

Spoiler:
 


One last thing I thought I’d mention, I swear I got paranoid as hell when at about 16 seconds in you can see two lights in the distance, they're the right distance apart and right angling to be like the two lights in TTA's Memories video.

Probably just a massive coincidence though.

I completely interpreted the picture differently.
Spoiler:
 
Which means that I'm completely screwed because of how many I've drawn. Hell one is probably too many.

And for a more comedic view of the entry...
Alex on Cribs!
Spoiler:
 
That's pretty much what it looked like to me.

Is it weird that I concentrated more on the fact that the computer chair moved then I did Alex being gone and Slendy being all climbin' in yo windows?

Either way, *shivers*. This season is so full of shittin' brix I am astounded.

To bring something useful to the topic, I still don't think the Operator Symbol "summons" him. If you are going to play the card of "summoning" then you have to live with the idea that the Operator can be used as a tool. That he can be directed or given direction to help, hurt or harm. That he isn't a chaotic force but something that fits into a larger hierarchy. I for one, am far from submitting to the idea that the Operator has rules or regulations--that he could be in Germany eating children and because some twat in Georgia decided that he wanted to do some doodling, that the Operator has to drop what he is doing and appear before some mere mortal to do his bidding.
That just doesn't sit well in my stomach. At all.

... although, to play devil's advocate, it would explain the mental and physical deterioration of Alex. To try and control something that powerful would surely come at a great cost to one's health. Coughing up hamburger can't be a sign of anything good.

I think it's more of a coping mechanism. Alex is going insane and he's trying to convince himself that it's not his fault.
