Countdown to Ep 5: "The City That Dares Not Sleep"

Whoa is it time for one of these already? Probably not, but here it is anyway.

So yeah, July's pretty close to done so it's time for the Final Count..down... thread. Hm. I didn't expect to go there at all. My apologies.

I'm Jake, and as many of you guys know from elsewhere on the forums, I wear quite a few hats around the TTG offices. The last few months, I have been fortunate enough to wear the hat of "director" for the final chapter of The Devil's Playhouse, "The City That Dares Not Sleep.".

I'll be hanging around this thread for between now and release, answering questions and dropping amazingly obscure, indecipherable, impenetrable, mind-rending hints about the final episode. Which you guys will surely figure out within like ten minutes, causing me to freak out thinking I've unwittingly spoiled the season finale for you. Fortunately, you'll then inevitably second guess yourselves and get it all horribly wrong a few days after that.

The episode was written and designed by Chuck Jordan (writer/designer/director of The Penal Zone, and lord overseer of the whole season), who is enjoying his new exotic life outside the office (which means he's probably at home on his couch playing Limbo on XBLA), but hopefully he can be coaxed into stopping by as well to help field things, too.

So yeah, the questions, the speculating: Fire away!

Uhhh, uhhh, bullet points.... Stemmle had all those cool bullet points. Dammit. Bullets.

I am less prepared than Mike "Master of the Countdown Thread" Stemmle, if you didn't notice. My bullet points, however, far outclass those of any prior thread. Feast:

[LIST]
[*]It's the last episode of the season.
[*]It features some very nice decorative clocks and lamps which I think you'll enjoy.

What more do you need to know?

  • Does anyone else think Stone Sour's Get Inside (modified a fair bit) would fit as a soundtrack for S&M 305? :D Max/Junior's words to Sam:

    Seed, gotta let it grow, why ya gotta watch while I let it feed?
    Better look to the player for the guidance you need to win, straight-man
    But I don't give a ****; I let it rule - I run rampant
    Gotta run, gotta rend, gotta maim, gotta make like an Elder God, so I say:
    STAY AWAY!

    Please... wring the blood from my hands
    Don't pretend that you understand me
    I don't even want you looking at me
    Mother****er, GET INSIDE!

    Get inside, get inside (mother****er)

    Christ, have you seen this city? It'd make ya feel sick, gonna trample all the human ****
    Cuz all you wanna do is keep thwartin' me, but I don't give a fuck I'll kill everyone
    You'll have enough blood and guts and **** when I'm done
    Isn't this fun? Gimme an inch and I'll tell you all the secrets I hide BEFORE YOU DIE!

    Please... wring the blood from my hands
    Don't pretend that you understand him
    I don't even want you looking at me
    Mother****er, GET INSIDE!

    Get inside, get inside (mother****er)

    (solo: Josh)

    Maybe if I look away, you can slip away, ****in' get away
    (RUN, MOTHER****ER)
    Right now I'll stare at ****, have a look, see what's best to destroy
    Then when I turn around, there'll be trouble if you're still here
    Oh yeah I ****in' see
    I don't know how I got this damn disease
    but I KNOW YOU WANNA KILL ME!

    Please... wring the blood from my hands
    Don't pretend that you understand us
    It hurts every time you look at me
    Mother****er, GET INSIDE!

    Get inside, get inside (mother****er)


    Where's Majus of IWWH fame when you need him? Mind, an episode ago, I don't think I'm alone in thinking Knights of Cydonia would have been more fitting (Yog-Soggoth).

  • Even Highwaydamus couldn't have predicted that ^

    I think you're underestimating my powers; tabstis: time of death, 2:34 pm, March 18, 2015

    How do I die, voodoo lady?

  • @tabstis said: How do I die, voodoo lady?

    that is a question for the cards

  • @The Highway said: I predict... Sal is not dead!


    It's uncanny!

  • @Chuck said: It's uncanny!

    No, it's just obvious that the forums' resident Voodoo master should know these things!

  • @Chuck said: It's uncanny!

    There we go sal is not dead.

  • @Gman5852 said: There we go sal is not dead.

    Such a relief!

  • Now the question is this: Should we reveal to the rest of the forums that Sal is alive? Should we not reveal it? Or should we lie and say that it was confirmed that Sal is dead? Those are possibly very important questions.
