    This is your best work yet. I'll save my theories for now, but using a pre-established world to tell personal stories of torment at the hand of the supernatural is incredible. That argument at the end gave me an entirely new outlook on what is happening and how it affects the people in this world. Also, that scene of Adam wanting to know what they're saying intercut with Adam in the garden biting the forbidden fruit is excellent. You're really showing some skill not just as a world builder, but as a storyteller. I am so excited to see where the series and your future writing endeavors go from here, congratulations man.

      ​@SnowiKitt I believe it's an Alternate impersonating Johan from a prior time when he's done that. As Adam confronts Jonah at the end about doing this in the past, and screwing around in general.

    This one was really good. I felt. The characters really had time to develop and show. Even the Alternates, or whatever was talking to Adam and Jonas at the end were, had some character. Like when they were talking to Jonas they continued to torment him with how he left Adam behind, but when they were talking to Adam they felt weirdly sincere. Like they were trying to scare Adam, but they were failing, because Adam just wasn't getting scared, so what results is a really interesting dialogue, mainly because it's the first real one we've seen in this series between a character and an Alternate, with both parties aware of what the other is (or rather is not, as Alternates have conversed with people in this series before, but while pretending to be someone else). I don't know if my interpretation of the conversation is correct, but here's what I think is going on.
    Adam confronts the Alternate, and given his equipment laying on the floor, and the low angle of the camera, I imagine he sat down got himself comfortable to spend a while there, showing how unafraid he is, and that he's spent a long time trying to get to where he is right now. Remember, from what Jonas said, Adam didn't just let curiosity get the better of him right there in the house, he's been trying to find an alternate for a long time, ever since his girlfriend/wife/sister/mother/childhood friend/whoever the 'she' they talked about is, was taken. I also love the fact that, in addition to the meowing, the alternate shows a picture of a cat, because, for all the forethought that went into Adam's decision to walk down those stairs, he still is like Adam taking a bite out of the apple, or in more modern times, the proverbial cat in the phrase 'curiosity killed the cat', so it's almost like the alternate is taunting him with this.
    Given the face on the screen staying still by the time Adam has set up, it appears the Alternate didn't try to do anything first to try to scare him into showing his fear or do anything aggressive like that. It's like it's not only recognised how calm Adam is, but acknowledged that he is here of his own free will. It doesn't need to do anything to trap him or do whatever it does when it finds a victim, because he's here because he chose to be here and he's not going to flee. Every other character in this situation is trapped by an Alternate, they were their prey, and their resulting fear is what let them be captured. But both Adam and the Alternate know this encounter is different. As much as I imagine the Alternate would like to change the situation, currently, Adam is not the Alternates prey. And the Alternate seems to acknowledge this as it speaks with Adam. It almost feels like the Alternate treats Adam as an equal. When Adam asks the Alternate a question "What are you...[?]", the Alternate actually answers. Granted, it's answer doesn't make sense, "you don't remember me" (you need to have closed captions on to see it), but the fact that it answered shows some level of regard of Adam as more than simply prey. I like to think the Alternate holds some sort of begrudging respect for Adam.
    Then the Alternate asks Adam a question. "What have you done?" I'm not entirely sure what this means, especially given Adam's confusing answer "I did the right thing." But I think what it meant was coming down to the Alternate and pushing Jonah away, given its next lines "nobody is coming to help you nobody knows where you are", and Adam attempting to radio Jonah to no response. What happens next is interesting, because it seems to be using this as a tactic to scare Adam to capture him, but is also genuinely curious about Adam. It tells him "nobody knows", before asking "Do You Understand?". I think it's asking him if he understands the danger he is in, like it actually wants to know why he's not scared. But I also get a weird feeling that it's asking for permission or something, like how in a hospital they ask you if you understand the risks of a treatment or someone reading you your rights. Not sure if that means anything, but that's the vibe I got.

    Just had a realization: Based on the credits, the "woman" listed is voiced by Faith Cunningham. You know who else was voiced by Faith Cunningham? Cesar's mother in Volume 1, the one who screams after the door opens. It's also not a coincidence that the same house from Vol. 1 is where they went to here in Vol. 2. My theory is that it was her (or at least her voice) that called them at the start about the cat to lure them into the house.

    The way the alternate responds to "I did the right thing." makes the alternate sound weak and powerless, scrambling for something, and this is because alternates physically can't hurt you, just tell you things in hope you end yourself, but when the alternate can't do that... it scrambles for power and a weak spot.

    I feel so bad for Jonah. He had to leave Adam behind in Mark's house, and he had to experience torment from the voice at the end. Also, as the voice speaks, you can hear Jonah quietly sobbing (or maybe that's him being scared). What a poor, poor man. :(

    At 17:26, I just noticed that what "Adam" is saying isn't on the his side, indicating that he isn't speaking.
    Both Ceaser and the Mother are still there, one hiding in the car with Jonah, the other following Adam. They torture both to get to their minds. While Adam was shocked about what Jonah was saying, the Alternate in the car told Jonah to go. That's why Adam tried to radio Jonah while in the basement. Because he didn't say it, the Alternate did.

      MyClutteredMess 6 days ago +9

      @Elese Lewis so the idea is that one alternate is with adam and one is with jonah. Both kinda get into the human’s minds, and use the radios to separate them. adam was shocked about what jonah said, and the alternate with jonah was telling jonah to leave. Adam tried to radio/call out to jonah in the basement because he didn’t know that jonah left. The alternate was imitating adams voice (similar to the “OH MY GOD BEHIND YOU” bit in jonahs voice) and told jonah to leave. Hope this clears things up!

  • Itz Cloudy
    Itz Cloudy 4 months ago +3683

    my take:
    Adam was the baby that vanished and her committed suicide as seen in that tape from vol.1, his mum was killed by an alternate but they never found her. Adam spends his life hunting alternates but they dont go after him because he is not afraid, he is more pissed. So in this video, he finally encounters an alternate because he brings a companion who reeks of fear so it actually wants to hunt them. As seen in "Don't make me wake the others adam" it tries to scare him, but it doesn't work. It also shows that there is likely more than one. So one of the alternates goes after Jonah and kills him after he gets out of the car. And the other stays behind to try to torment Adam, and judging from its appearance being identical to the one from when Adam's mother committed suicide, it may actually be the same alternate talking to him that made him disappear as a baby all those years ago.

      I don’t think Jonah died, I will explain why. I don’t know if this is right but I think alternates cannot kill people, so they make give people fear to make them kill themselves. When Jonah got out of the car, he could have gone out to puke because after lots of stress it’s normal for people to puke. If he had killed himself, wouldn’t we have heard a noise? But it’s possible I’m wrong though.

    I think that in the first volume, Cesar was an alternate that killed his mom, so he lured Mark to the house and made him commit suicide. Cesar's mom is probably the alternate in this video, the one that tried to make Adam kill himself (Wanted to comment this on vol. 1 but it's age restricted).

    one theory that i have is that adam is actually the child that went missing in the "intruder alert" video, what makes me a bit sure that this theory is true is at 18:19 if you read the closed captions it says "you don't remember me" that must be the alternate talking to adam, he knows adam because he is one of the children he had kidnapped but adam doesn't remember him since ya know he was still a kid, and that girl that jonah and adam were talking about (the one which jonah told adam that she's already dead) is actually adam's mother the same woman that killed herself in the "intruder alert" video, the same one which the alternate took her corpse away and that's probably why adam was interested in the alternates he wanted to know what happened to his own mother.

    I'm pretty sure the "oh my god behind you" line wasn't actually said by Jonah, but the alternate was mimicking him instead.

  • Eli Midd
    Eli Midd 4 months ago +3155

    That repeated "OH MY GOD BEHIND YOU" was chilling, the worst was the fact I couldnt tell if something was actually trying to warn Adam or trick him into turning around since in the previous video, it was shown that by avoiding looking at an alternate you would (supposedly) be safe. I also wonder if Adam was taken over by some kind of force, whether that was he was manipulated by gabriel or by something else. These guys clearly have some expierence with alternates and seem like they know at least somewhat how to handle them, so it just seems idiotic in this world to follow what is obviously something inhuman luring you. It's either that or Jonah and Adam's fight pretty clearly indicates that one of them, probably Adam, lost a loved one to an alternate and they wound up where they are because they tried to find them, so maybe the alternate tricked Adam into thinking this would redeem him or help whoever he lost. That clip of bible Adam may also indicate that by him trying to understand whatever the voice was saying was like taking a bite of forbidden fruit, he now knows something and theres no way to go back.

    Adam is the kid the TV Intruder took. When Adam looks at the TV and says “what are you?” If you have on the CC he says “you don’t remember me” Showing they have met before and the only people who have met the TV Intruder are Mark Heathcliff (dead), The Distraught Mother (dead) and the missing infant, who I am guessing is Adam.

    I love how Adam is so nice and kind to his customers, and calling them by formal names. He sounds like a person that would just kill his customers anger with kindness. What a dude
    These alternates are just trying to get Jonah to kill himself because there’s no proof Adam is dead, And that’s what making Jonah hysterical, He without a doubt has M.A.D cause the alternates were telling him that Adam would and is dead and that he’s a terrible person for leaving him behind. Those alternate voices sound like the “angel” Gabriel. I can tell Jonah was already scared in the first place trying to cover it up by not taking this seriously and trying to act like nothing is wrong, and saying this lady is on dr*gs and really high, which is quite offensive. I may be wrong but it’s just what I caught up

  • TheXbc

    An interesting point to note is that an alternate actually messes with GPS signals. This can be seen from various sections in the video. Before reaching the house, the GPS signal was green and strong. However, at the house, the GPS signal turned to 4/10, in the yellow range. When the alternate properly started to torment them, there was no longer a GPS signal, red. You can also see this when Jonah stopped the car. The GPS signal is red. I suspect that the closer an alternate is, the more the GPS signal is distorted, making it an effective method to track/try to run away from the alternates.

      I just think it's safe to assume an alternate's vessel is any form of visual technology. At the beginning the dashcam states the video might be damaged because of blank (we can only deduce it to be am alternate), then the GPS signal scrambling as well as the TV and radio contact between Adam and Jonah

    The worst part is not even the alternates. I've been thinking about how this video corelates with previous ones, and I've concluded that there are three possibilities:
    1. Since the house address was not exposed in the video, the house could be Cesar Torres';
    2. According to Alex, there's a new alternate type that can take the form of physical objects. He didn't specify whether or not the object could be the size of a house;
    3. Following the previous videos, assuming that the Alternates would have the same behavior and would take the same course of actions, Jonah in this video could've been being followed.

      Okay I watched it fully and came to the conclusion that the alternate possessed a electronic device and was able to hop out to kill. This alternate seems like it could kill. It hopped out of the TV and killed him, that's why it said do you understand because it could take control of electronic devices and that's what it did to Jonah and killed him.

    I noticed so much stuff in all of this, such as at 10:59 They dropped the Jonah on the captions meaning it was at this point an alternate copying Jonah’s voice, because you hear him even confused when Adam starts to say shut up.
    I also realized that the scene of adam biting that apple later lead to more consequences, and it was like adam technically bit off more then he could chew, because he’d not know the consequences until he faced them.
    Or the fact that Jonah had left the call and still somehow heard adam say “Just fucking Leave already, LEAVE!” Meaning there was some sort of alternate with Jonah the entire time. (Also that the words were not on his side, or on screen at all)

    I like to imagine alternates are some form of test, where only the true strong in mind and willpower can survive them. Like Adam who stayed and actively confronted the alternates at points, compared to Jonah who ran and was probably killed then replaced.

  • WMan37
    WMan37 4 months ago +1128

    9:38 Not sure if this was intentional or not, but I love how we're already used to alternates having their voices skip and glitch a bit, the actual regular glitches of the audio between the normal Adam and Jonah just talking still has our fear of the alternates in the back of our minds, even though (as far as we know at this point) Adam and Jonah are not alternates. That was definitely an alternate of Jonah at 10:41 trying to scare Adam though, since the real Jonah asks "What the hell did I do?", and I think Jonah eventually found out about this, which is what spooked him at the end when talking to Adam. They clearly have knowledge of Alternates, I don't think they would be trying to scare each other with that in mind since they also presumably know alternates latch onto fear.

    Adam almost won, unfortunately however, this no simple alternate. It knew adam wouldn't be scared and locked the door so Adam would be curious about whats on the other side, it even made Adam angry at Jonah and perhaps even tell Jonah to go away (evident when Adam told Jonah to go away, but it wasn't on the left aka Adam's side), ensuring when Adam did go through the door, he won't be able to go outside, and even Adam manages to find a way out, it also said that "nobody is coming. Do you understand?", which could mean either one, or more of these things i list
    1. The lengths of an alternate going to get a prey is amazingly long
    2. This alternate knew adam was a hard prey to kill, and this is what it did
    3. This was the intruder, and it was the same one adam encountered before (thus the "you don't remember me?", and it held some respect for someone who could escape its first encounter, but it made sure he would not do it again

    I love how at the intruder part you can see an image of Mark Heathcliff and Cesar Torres, The Preacher (the weird big mouthed alternate), what we can presume to be Adams mother hanging, her head hanging down, Mark and his sister, the detectable alternate from Vol. 1, and more. It’s showing Adam EVERYTHING that has happened in the Mandela County in Vol. 1.

    I noticed that names have a really important place in this second volume, Adam is the one who was the first man created and who bit in the forbidden fruit, and Jonah represent Jonas, the prophet in charge of spreading god's repressions to humans because of their sins, but he ran away being caught by the threat. Exactly as the characters did. Ok, Adam was to curious and went into this cave but I don't think it is what is represented by the bite of the apple, I think it's the "right thing" that he said to the intruder after being ask by this evil creature "What have you done ?".

  • Choice Barrel Scrotes
    Choice Barrel Scrotes 2 months ago +2

    This is more of a rant/observation than anything substantive so fair warning to anyone who reads this expecting insight. I find the “wanted by the FBI” angle interesting, especially because it immediately transitions to them being labeled as victims 3 and 4. I wonder if the wanted poster is referring to their alternates-implying that these creatures to some extent have a fixed form-or if the wanted posters are just the clearest photos of them on record (this is what I lean towards). The line “you’re making us out to be gangsters when all we did was…get this stuff” is interesting to me, because it suggests that perhaps by 2009 simply having “contraband” electronics is considered such a serious criminal offense that it constitutes a federal offense with a six figure reward. This would seem to be supported by the fact that these guys are mystified by something as simple as GPS, and the fact that it tells you how far away you are from your destination-not only are these technologies relegated to the black market, but the history of them and what they do is kept under wraps to the point that young people born after 1990 (which is when it seems the destruction order went out) truly have no idea what these things did. This again strikes me as interesting because it very much does suggest that these entities use electronic media as a sort of doorway into the physical world, and that the way to stop them is to destroy these doorways-which is different from how they are presented in THINK principle, as entities with primarily corporeal presence that can be killed. It also makes me wonder if the fact that Soccer Game also takes place in 2009. Clearly shot on a camcorder, which is likely contraband. I wonder if 20 years after the order, the threat or perceived threat of alternates is so low that people have slowly begun to break the rules, allowing alternates to reappear in corporeal form.

      @Thesnakerox unless, making him think Adam is dead makes Johna's fear greater. The alternates don't lie because the truth is what makes people kill themselves. However, it's not facts the speak all the time, only the truth inside you which you try to put out of your mind. He left Adam to die and that is the truth the alternates cause Johna to confront, but Adam could be alive.

    • Thesnakerox
      Thesnakerox Month ago

      At around 19:02 you hear Adam say "Jonah...? You there...?" and the way he says it sounds like fear is starting to set in. That, coupled with the fact that the Intruder kept saying "YOU LEFT HIM TO DIE" to Jonah via the GPS he was using implies to me that Adam ended up succumbing to the fear and not making it.

    The bible cartoon shown midway through the video is probably the most enlightening segment. Intentional contrast seems to be drawn between bible Adam and real Adam.
    - Biblical Adam eats the apple after being manipulated by the serpent, and the only captioned portion in the clip mentioned his fear. Tricked by the serpent (devil) - did the wrong thing - scared
    - Real Adam is not fazed by the alternates at all throughout the video, nor is he afraid. He seems to be in search of a woman, which I would guess from the cartoon to be his "Eve" parallel. He is not tricked - did the "right thing" - completely fearless.
    In addition, when real Adam is asleep, he is told that he followed the shepherd, is told to follow the voice, and promised great happiness (I don't believe he ended up heeding the voice, either). This is blatantly an inversion of biblical Adam being tricked by the serpent. HUGE main character energy from real Adam. Possibly a crazy avenger of God, I don't know. Possibly a new start.
