Beyond the Alley of the Dolls Speculation Thread

@The Narrator said: We'll have answers, of a sort, to these questions in our next chapter. Until then, my friends, sleep well.

Every phrase that the Narrator has said in the trailers to the Devil's Playhouse episodes was actually lifted from the very end of the games; All those phrases are actually teasers to the next episode. My question is, what does our enigmatic host mean by "Sleep well?" Will Sam be hit in the head with a blackjack and dragged to a laboratory (perhaps like the image in the leftmost painting in the trailer), and tied to an operating table before a mad scientist takes his DNA to develop the Sam clones? Or perhaps the Sam clones have already been developed, and are dormant in cryogenic chambers until the next episode?

It's never too early for speculation, my friends, and we'll have some more evidence to go on once Max's Brain is available online. In the meantime, let's investigate and speculate together, and see who will reach the truth first, about the Playhouse of the Bizarre...

    I think it's New York, after all... Who would sleep in that city?

    Also, a speculation thread is to early at this point, we have no content for Episode 4 and no information from Episode 3 to give us some slight hint what's going to happen "Beyond the Alley of the Dolls".

  • yes but the ideas are fun in there Owen

    Also, I heard The Highway has a review copy of They Stole Max's Brain. Does this mean we should take his comment about the knock-out gas seriously?

    fixed.

    I slept in it every night for ten days >.>

    So did I, but I meant if you were living in a unstable neighborhood like Sam & Max do, after all; explosions, giant robots, inhuman space gorillas attacking the city with giant laser eye canons.. Insurance Men. I don't think I'd sleep through any of that!

  • At least it would be more exciting than seeing Phantom of the Opera. That was the biggest waste of time during my trip to New York. I could've seen The Producers, or Avenue Q, or Spamalot, but nooooooooooooooooo... And then the show didn't even have the decency to be interrupted by a giant robot smashing through the wall.

    ...certainly, you didn't go into Phantom expecting a comedy? Because, and I'm not completely sure you've realized this, your listed alternatives are all comedies.

  • Personally, if I were in New York I'd go see "The Fantasticks". Then again I wouldn't be dragged to an Andrew Lloyd Webber musical if you paid me.

  • I knew exactly what I was getting into with Phantom. I was vocally opposed to seeing Phantom from the beginning. My stubborn dad wanted to see it, and the rest of the family loved it. I feel like I wasted my trip to Broadway.

    I don't get why you had to go with everyone else? Couldn't you get a ticket to something different at the same time or just sit it out? We did that all the time when I still lived with my parents.
