The City that Dares not Sleep Speculation Thread

Wow that episode went quickly. But I think not everything has become clear yet... I still think we will see a main villain to the season as in the previous two. We also don't know what happened to Skunkape, Sal or Papierwaite! (although the latter may be dead...NOOOO) And Max is being controlled by Junior, right? What will the next episode be like without him? And will the narrator ever show up...

    I already pointed that out, but nobody listened.:(

    I know the feeling. All my bug reports for EA are going unnoticed and unfixed, leaving my copy of The Sims 3 unplayable now.:(

  • I have finally completed Beyond the Alley of the Dolls (Woohoo! I caught up to the rest of you) and so am able to read a speculation thread for the first ever time without fear of spoilers! Then I discovered it's 11 pages long. That sucks. I'm not reading all that.

    But I'm glad to see in the first page lots of peeps saying they don't think Sal is dead!

    Yeah! Sal's the best suspicious character ever besides Spot(the asp). And its not like the writers are like J.K. Rowling, author of the Harry Potter books in which all the good characters were killed off.


    Does anyone think we will FINALLY be able to go into Stinky's kitchen?

  • I only want one thing from this episode.

    ...I want a musical number...

    You want a musical number for 305? Check out this. If you know the song, the images should flow into your mind naturally. If not, there's always the original on Youtube.

    Fixed.

  • I almost thought that Sam could develop somewhat psychic use of the toys given his exposure. However, it seems unlikely that Sam or Skunkape could use them on their own. In 301 its explained that Skunkape used Gordon the Alien Brain to use the toys, and Sam is able to participate because he is Max's partner. Although its never really explained how Sam can join in powers like future vision, when he and Max aren't touching.

    And to clear the matter up for those on this forum, this picture shows the supporting cast of Season 3, not necessarily villains:

    http://i28.tinypic.com/292xmp4.jpg

    From left to right we have the molepeople family from 302, Baby Amelia Airheart, Girl Stinky, Sal, Paperwaite/Dr Norrignton/Yog Soggoth, Skunkape, Nicolas St. Kringle, Momma Bosco, Grandpa Stinky, Charlie Ho-Tep, Samulacra, and giant max legs.

    Now, Momma Bosco looks weird, almost like Brady Culture, since she's never worn shorts in any of the games. And the giant legs are probably from the giant Sammunmak statue from 303. Although why those are in the picture are anyones guess, since they didn't do anything in the episode. If those were from monster max the legs would look at least amphibious to follow the rest of his transformation.

    The season is called The Devil's Playhouse. While this could refer to the locations in the game where The Devil's Toy box is used I suspect this is more or a separate location. That's why I think Beelzebub may make a reappearance. One of the random lines when talking to Max in this last episode goes along the lines of "Sam: If this is The Devil's Toy Box, how come we haven't run into him yet? Max: His agent's probably holding out for more money" Beezlebub is the Devil in the Sam & Max games. Also, at the end of 205 Beelzebub ominously predicts that he will meet Sam & Max sooner than they think. While that could refer to his appearance during the wedding scene in the credits, his tone is far too wicked. Besides, all the season characters minus the true villain appear in the credits sequence. Also, Beelzebub and The Narrator seem to speak with the same accent, though I don't know if they share the same voice actor.

    Outside of this prediction, I doubt any of the suspected characters are dead. The characters always persist even if they're technically dead, like previous seasons villains in Hell.

    And the Toys of Power still linger in some ways. They've been used during the whole season. Max has achieved his full potential. The Chthonic Destroyer seems to "destroy" things from the Dark Dimension by returning them there, so they would still exist in a different dimension. For example, since the Toy Box was sent to "our" universe the Chthonic Destroyer has existed in that other dimension when not in use. All this highly suggests a visit to the "Devil's Playhouse" location or the Dark Dimensions.

    The biggest question I have unanswered from this last episode is: How exactly did Charlie Ho-Tep come to life and get a sample of Sam's DNA for cloning?

  • ..That's not Momma Bosco, that's Jurgen.

  • @qwertyuiop said: Now, Momma Bosco looks weird, almost like Brady Culture, since she's never worn shorts in any of the games.

    That's because that's Jurgen, not Momma Bosco.

    EDIT: Argh! I was beaten to the punch!
