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...

  • Eh, my dad would've had a fit if I'd even suggested that, and I wouldn't have enjoyed it if I'd seen any of those on my own. I did end up seeing Spamalot when it came to Denver, and I got to see a really well done production of The Producers at a dinner theatre in Boulder, so I really only missed out completely on Avenue Q, but I had no chance in hell of talking any of my family into that one anyway.

  • That's funny, I enjoy stuff like that better when I'm alone so nobody keeps poking my shoulder to tell me what happens next :p
    But I'm also the kind who prefers going the restaurant alone, because if I'm with other people, I want to have a nice homemade meal. So I guess I'm weird :p

  • Oh man. A lot of Sams. And Anubis is exactly like him! (In a way!) What's happened?

    (Just bumping the thread up now we have something to talk about it. And, What the hell is Papierwaite? Appart of still been somewhat awesome =P, a bug like Sal but altered by Norrington?)

  • This is so confusing me right now ... and I'm gonna be away next month around when the new ep will be out :( Still, I have that to look forward to when I get back.

    Aside from random guesses and wacky theories, I don't think there's any way that we can figure out where Telltale are going with this. But I doubt that's going to stop anyone trying!

  • Whoever said the titles are to be taken literally, 204 had no chariots and only two dogs. Additionally, NYC is widely known as the city that never sleeps, harking to a film title I've long since forgotten. I'm not good on films. :(

  • if you do you recherché you wood thine out sum of the gods related to Yog Soggoth stores are in dreams and a dream has a wind to the mind and shoal

    AND, Moai Better Blues did NOT have BLUES!

    ...Well, I think it's worthy to be speculated that there is the word 'dolls' in the title and there are a bunch of Sams. Maybe they're not clones, but dolls that are animated by some sort of magic.

    It IS weird that there are a lot of Sams as since this point, Max had all the importance and anomaly. I mean, if one could make clones -or dolls- and wanted to use them, they'd do Max clones instead. I wonder what makes Sam so special right now. Is it his bodily strength? If so, why not making Skunkape clones? I'm not bitching about it, instead I REALLY want the writers to give something more special to Sam, and I feel like I'm about to get what I want.

  • Does Sam have much bodily strength? Also I LOVED interrogating perps! I realize it couldn't have held up for the whole game, but by golly, wouldn't it have been nice to try? (With a pilot episode, maybe?). I'm going to go back and try depressing everybody, again :D

    Oh, yeah, that's true. Why Sam's clones? Why not someone else? I'm thinking is maybe a confusion about how he can keep Max under control for a while, considering Max is supposenly to destroy the universe and what not.

    I LOVED try to depress everyone. But the reason goes in the support group thread. I mean, he was so *AWWWWWWWWWW*

  • @Lena_P said: Does Sam have much bodily strength?

    After Skunkape lets his guard down, Sam did pummel the crap out of him. Sure, he was knocked out cold, but still, he's not affected by bullets and all that. Even being able to punch him hard and twisting his neck a little counts as something.
