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...

  • Since when does a character's death mean they're out of the series?

  • @serializer said: I'm thinking it could happily fit in with canon if Mac Salmon turned out to be Mr Spatula having been granted a body by unknown powers?

    According to the audio commentary on the Season 2 DVD, Mr Spatula would have transformed into Mack Salmon in Moai Better Blues. In the end it didn't happen because Steve Purcell didn't want the origins of the character to be revealed in any way.

    ... Or *did* he?

  • My guess is Norrington is actually... the commissioner! He has the same role as the commissioner in the last seasons and think about it, we don't really know all that much about either.

  • Norrington and Narrator. It does sound awfully similar.

  • Damn you Americans! Just because two voices have no accent, they are posh and so similar they could be the same? They have different voices in the credits and having been around non-American people all my life, I can safely say they sound different to me.

  • I think Norrington and the Narrator are the same too.

    Even if they use 2 different voice-actors, that wouldn't exclude it. It has happened before, when they start speaking with both during the big reveal and all...

    Geez, you need to calm down. There's no need to curse at the entire population of the United States.

    Although the voices DO sound somewhat similar to American ears, you're right to say that they are subtly different. I, too, think the Norrington-is-the-Narrator theory is spurious, and based on very little actual evidence. But at the moment, it's just as good as any other theory about who Norrington really is.

    PS: Andrew Chaikin, who voices the Narrator, is an American. I don't know about the guy who played Norrington.

  • Have we forgotten about Sal who obviously lied that he was fired because grandpa Stinky didn't like cockroaches around food. Sal can still be the villain in episode 304, if you remember Moma Bosco's power core when Sam said "That is a question for another episode" and 3 episodes have already past so it must be the next episode or the final. And one more thing: Sal and the two Stinky's have been in the villain's lineup, and if I do remember correctly everyone from the villain lineup even those who we thought where good after all where bad guys(Amelia Earhart, Papierwitte,etc...), so I think that Sal, The dummy and the Stinky's will be villain's in the next episode. Did I just wright all that? :O
