I'm not good at theories, so your thoughts?

OH GOD DAMN IT!

I was making a topic like this, and then I noticed it was already made.

...Ah well, I liked this one.

I was expecting the Operator or the Masked Twins to show up at some point because of how past entries have went. But this is nice, too!

I'm glad we finally hear from Jessica in these past tapes. Here's to hoping our theory that she's Sinclair is right!

Man, that felt more like a violent break up than a brofight. I honestly couldn't keep a straight face the whole time even though I was simultaneously cringing with fear and apprehension.

trololo

On a more serious note, I was fully expecting Masky and Sinclair to come to Jay's aid, and the Operator to come to Alex's. Well ok, more like hoping. Bottom line, I was expecting some ass kicking that almost but didn't quite happen, though that's ok. We found out how
Spoiler:
 
so I guess that makes up for it.

Also, I still love you Alex, even if you are a dick. <3

edit: You too Jay. <3 I have the capacity to love you both equally.

Also for the sake of being thorough, just going to point out the distortion that occurred whenever Alex got agressive/close to the camera. Seems to confirm the correlation between his anger and Operator-esque distortion.

Man, I was seriously hoping that those two would get in a fistfight. That would have been hilarious!

On a more serious note this entry was pretty good acting-wise, at least for MH.

This is officially one of my favorite Marble Hornets Entries ever. I'm so fond of the fact that they've given us a heaping helping of actual dialogue and used it to advance the story in an extremely significant way. Now we know how Jessica got involved in all of this, to some extent.

...And Alex never did tell him how he got out of the apartment.

I agree with a lot of people who have already posted. MH's ability to mix things up, and keep their story interesting and engaging is probably their best quality. And I was SO surprised with how good the acting was, considering the first season (tastefully, in my opinion) avoided acting as much as possible, and the acting we've seen in the past from Jessica was absolutely foul.


Good entry, even if it wasn't scary. I'm ready for answers to all the dead ends that seem to keep popping up.

On the note of Alex being corrupted, I really don't believe he is. I just think that would be way too obvious. He may be angry, but I definitely don't think he's anywhere near siding with the Operator.

I find her acting static and unconvincing. I feel like this may be a fault of the writing as well: there is no ambiguity in her emotions or complexity in her character/motive (which are both qualities showcased in our two protagonists). Also, a completely unrelated and unfair criticism: I just cannot stand her voice. But that's my problem.

haha I thought she did a good job for the exact reason most people could not stand her; she smiled a bit during her angry lashing out at Jay. First of all, I thought that freak out was utterly convincing and quite an interesting break away from the rest of the characters: 'Things are happening. I am unnerved.'(Which works in the context, don't get me wrong.) Second, I relate to the smiling when angry/upset part because I do it all the time. In fact when I'm incredibly upset I tend to laugh quietly without meaning to. SO I actually bought that she could be freaking out at Jay while still smiling a bit.

But that's just me. Razz

I think the truth lies with what Crusegirl said.

I don't even think Alex is aware of what's going on. I could be wrong of course, but my theory is that he's basically an unwilling and unknowing puppet of the Operator. For example, I don't think he was aware that he lied to Jessica about Amy (and if he was, it was probably under the prestense of protecting her). Looking at Alex's perspective when taking that into account, it really makes you feel sorry for him.

Eh I'm noticing Alex seemingly being attracted to Slendy. He always seems to go for walks by himself, like in that one entry (i forget the exact number, all I know is he gets out of his car, walks into the woods *boom* Slendy. He falls over, gets up goes to stand by Slendy or something?)

And as we've seen in the last update, not following Jay out of the apartment. I don't think he was aware of lying about Amy. It seems to me the Masked Twins and Slendy seem to have some sort of mind control. How else would you explain them waking up and leaving their beds and they don't remember it? In any case, long story short, I agree that Alex is being corrupted.

I gotta say, I've really grown to enjoy it whenever Jay and Alex are on screen together. They have such wonderful chemistry (no homo) (well okay maybe a little homo)

They're really driving home the "Alex is a bad person" thing lately - almost a little too much. Knowing MH, it's probably a fair bit more complicated than Alex just being a fuckwhistle.

They're both fuckwhistles, I just happen to think they're particularly charming fuckwhistles.

Keeps me watching, at any rate.

Wow what another great entry, firstly I agree with what Crusergirl put that Queen Morgause re-showed in quotes. The possibility that Alex isn't aware of his actions and personality during Slender-Controlled moments.

Ties into my theory about all his mad drawings saying "Kill me" being part of his conscious screaming out while controlled.

Secondly, I got to say...sort of confirms that Jay is somewhat important or maybe was needed for the others to find Alex.

Notice how Alex says he NEVER had to deal with masked psychos coming after him until Jay showed up. Jay was indeed the first to deal with the maskies which makes either Jay important or they have been using him to get to Alex.

This was perhaps the most refreshing entry in quiet a while. It's good to see that the show has more to offer then sleepless nights.

A really good breather episode, if one can call it that. This episode truly shows the relationship between Alex and Jay, and how much it has become strained due to the insanity of these recent events. It really feels like everything is coming full circle, with Jay leaving Alex, talking to Jessica, having the (apartment) key, it really feels like those few months that Jay had forgotten has been revealed. I'm just really curious as to what happens that forces him to loose those months of memory.
