So I realized that Weirdmageddon Part 3 has ties to every episode
Sorry, some of these are fairly loosely done. Warning, there’s a lot of “They still have this character” sorry. Seriously, upon finishing this, some of these just kind of suck. But they still all tie to the finale
Tourist Trapped - The Gnomes show up. The series starts and ends with Dipper narrating. Dipper gets a new hat in the first episode, the one with the Pine Tree, and the last, Wendy’s
The Legend of the Gobblewonker - The Gobblewonker is part of the robot. Also McGucket uses his beard to operate a stick shift in both episodes
Headhunters - Wax Larry King’s head is back, fascinating
The Hand That Rocks the Mabel - Gideon being cute, in the finale he says he’s tied of being cute
The Inconveniencing - They finally turn 13, something Dipper lied to Wendy to get in with her group
Dipper vs. Manliness - Manotaur comes back
Double Dipper - Grenda, Candy and Pacifica come back again. Clones 3 & 4 are also in the credits
Irrational Treasure - Quintin P. Trembley appears in the end credits
The Time Traveler’s Pig - Waddles. Also Dipper grabbing the bag of ice to help Wendy’s black eye could foreshadow her place on the Bill Cipher Wheel
Fight Fighters - Rumble McSkirmish is there to help fight
Little Dipper - The Growth/Shrink Ray is used against Bill
Summerween - Mabel brings this up when trying to restore Stan’s memory
Boss Mabel - In both episodes there’s a sign displayed that says “Under New Management.” They also aired two years apart to the day
Bottomless Pit! - In Dipper’s story “Voice Over” McGucket refers to himself as a “part time inventor” in the finale, he makes millions with patents on his inventions and buys the Northwest Manor
The Deep End - Mr. Poolcheck makes a reappearance outside of Buzz’s Autobarn
Carpet Diem - Though not exactly the same way, both features a pair of twins switching places. In Carpet Diem Experiment 78 causes Dipper and Mabel (among several others) to switch bodies. In the finale, Stan and Ford dress up as each other so Bill will go into Stan’s mind
Boyz Crazy - Sev’ral Times is shown in the finale
Land Before Swine - A dinosaur makes up one of the robot’s arms
Dreamscaperers - Stan says he’s surprised Bill doesn’t remember his mind, a reference to when Bill entered it in this episode
Gideon Rises - Stan and Ford reenact the pose where Mabel holds onto Dipper and saves their lives. Main difference is they’re going up
Scary-oke - Zombies appear in the cemetery
Into the Bunker - Weirdmageddon is possibly what the author (Ford) planned to hide in that bunker for as long as he could
The Golf War - There’s at least one Lilliputtian in the shack during the finale
Sock Opera - In Sock Opera Bill says “I have big plans.” Meaning he planned Weirdmageddon, and subsequently needs Dipper kept in the dark as much as possible to help his plans.
Soos and the Real Girl - Melody comes back when they show Soos running the shack
Little Gift Shop of Horrors - In both episodes Grenda is given highly dangerous technology. In Little Gift Shop of Horrors, story “Abaconings” she is given a jetpack Waddles made. In the finale, she is given a glove that controls a very large fist. Both dangerous, both hilarious.
Society of the Blind Eye - The Memory Erasing Gun comes back
Blendin’s Game - In this episode Stan hired Soos. In the finale, Soos became the manager
The Love God - Robbie’s parents make a reappearance
Northwest Mansion Mystery - Marius also appears in the end credits
Not What He Seems - Ford joined the main cast in this episode, in addition, the portal being used in this episode is what caused the rift that allowed Weirdmageddon to happen
A Tale of Two Stans - The ships Stan and Ford are on now is dubbed “The Stan O’ War II” a reference to the “Stan O’ War” from this episode
Dungeons, Dungeons & More Dungeons - In both episodes Ford needs to be saved
The Stanchurian Candidate - Mayor Befufftlefumpter comes back as a zombie in the finale
The Last Mabelcorn - The hair protects the main body of the robot
Roadside Attraction - In both episodes, Stan rips on himself. In Roadside Attraction, he’s talking about how his way of flirting stinks. In the finale though, he talks about he never used his mind for anything good. Stan also jokes about him being an amnesiac, oh the foreshadowing
Dipper and Mabel vs. the Future - This episode kind of caused the Weirdmageddon, so… yeah I’m counting that
Weirdmageddon Part 1 - Gideon’s punishment is showed in the finale
Weirdmageddon 2: Escape from Reality - There’s still all of the people shown from the end here. Dipper also said that he wouldn’t go with Ford in this episode, he returns home with Mabel in the finale
That’s it. The finale has a tie to all other 39 episodes.
If you want me to add anything, please feel free to message me
Here’s something very important from Matt Braly’s AMA last night.
Gideon was just a normal kid before he found journal 2. He found the book just like Dipper did but at a younger age. Unlike many people have said, Gideon wasn’t just some spoilt, greedy kid, he was completely innocent until he found journal 2. This could have shown how the Journal’s knowledge really is dangerous.
Also, with the majority of the fandom hating poor Gideon this could have been some good development (or the closest we would get to) for Gid. Look at how Pacifica went from one of the most unpopular characters to most fans loving her after her development in TGW and NMM. So many fans hate Gideon and I can’t help but feel this would have been so good to see how his character changed, and show us that he’s not all bad.
I’m really upset they deleted this scene (and I have no idea why they did!) all I can say is I really hope Gideon gets some more development when he returns.
So I have this thought about Gravity Falls that, regardless of truth, is my favorite headcanon and I really hope has some weight to it.
Carla McCorkle got together with Thistle Downe (This we know)
And maybe had a daughter who I believe is
Who is the mother of
Which would make Carla McCorkle Pacifica Northwest’s grandmother.
‘But, Alison,’ you ask 'what evidence do you have to prove this?’
Well other than the fact that I think Mrs. Northwest looks like a pretty solid combination of Carla and Thistle, (albeit with a sharper jaw) Pacifica’s color scheme seems to include purple pretty consistently, which is also the main color that Thistle and Carla wore. (Color symbolism matters to me very deeply.)
Story-wise, it would be 100% hilarious/wonderful for Carla McCorkle to come back as Pacifica’s Grandma and butt heads with her old boyfriend and the Pines family.
Forever living the 80s style! The Mr and Mrs constantly bring up their favorite time period ever single day, and Pacifica could listen to them talk about the day they met for hours. The Northwests are the most generous family in Gravity Falls, in fact, if there was such a award for generosity, the Northwests would have six of them. Pacifica rarely doesn’t get what she wants, yet she does not boast about her wealth. She would be more than happy to lend a hand, and frankly, the parents would not mind at all.
The OG Parents were restricting, controlling and abusive, while the Reverse, they give Pacifica a bit too much freedom and little discipline. Pacifca could walk around Gravity Falls and into the forest without supervision and the Northwest couple would think nothing of it. Pacifca knows they love her, but she sometimes wanders if she is even noticeable at all to them.
So what character in Gravity Falls DOESN’T Have serious issues with their Family/Parents? Wendy admitted to being stressed about her family in SotBE, Soos’ dad was never around, Pacifica’s parents were awful…
It’s kind of jarring that the most healthy and loving families in the show are Robbie with his cheerful undertaker parents and The Pines, which consists of a grumpy old conman, a paranoid twelve year old and his hyperactive and bubbly twin sister with her pet pig.
Yeah, this is horrifying, but look at Pacifica’s mother.
In the first picture, it seems like Pacifica and her are holding onto each other as a safety blanket kinda thing.
But in the second image, it looks as if Mrs. Northwest is forcefully keeping Pacifica in front of her, despite Pacifica obviously wanting not to be there.
Mrs. Northwest gives little to no regard for her daughter’s safety.
She’d rather put Pacifica in potential danger than let her run and/or hide.
Let that sink in.
