Outriders Cult Theory
Soo, I know how we’ve been talking about how the Outriders seem like a cult, but this new episode really takes the cake when it comes to confirmation.
Here is a short list of the actions and statements that set off a red flag for me, most occurring while Gregor is talking to Kyrlos in The Knuckle’s office:
“I know they get a bad rap sometimes and I never believed any of the rumors” -Kyrlos
Also see: Kyrlos thought all of the Outriders were gone, and makes a comment about how no one will “hunt down” Gregor, sighting a king or church. With exceptions of course, kings and churches don’t usually hunt people who are doing good deeds down.
“You’re one of the first people that seems excited about that.” - Gregor
“Brutal, just like the Outriders!” - Kyrlos
-“Brutality, brutality can be great sometimes. Lots of people don’t recognize that.” - Gregor
“Of course we don’t do any of the “mental training” things” - Kyrlos
Also see: According to Gregor, fighting living things is the best training. He’s surprised they’re waisting time with, ya know, stuff that can’t feel pain or bleed.
