('WARNING: Potential spoilers for episode 10!)
Apologies if this is in the wrong place!
So, in the very first episode of OTGW, we get to hear the song Into the Unknown , but there's a part that is cut out, until the ending of episode 10.
Dancing in a swirl,
Of golden memories,
The loveliest lies of all,
The loveliest, lies of all.
When Greg's Frog sings the missing part, he puts very strong emphasis on the word lies, and winks at the viewer. So, it must be important. So what I'm asking everyone is, what is your theory on the meaning of the last verse? My theories are:
- The entire story was made up by Greg's Frog, and is completely (in-universe) fictional. He was just making up a story for the viewer.
- In a twisted Life of Pi way, Wirt and Greg actually did die, or at least, one of them did (most likely Greg). The journey through the Unknown was made up by the surviving brother as a coping mechanism.
- Wirt and/or Greg, both alive, just made up the Unknown part to embellish what actually happened after the train.
So, what are your theories? I'd love to hear them!
