Uh oh, guys.
After @invaderjj sent me that screencap, I went back to rewatch the scene from my own stream where Henry shakes violently and hallucinates inside the pentagram at the end of chapter 1.
So you walk in, and the room looks like this.
Floor is clean, save for the circle, and the candles are lit, right?
Then we see this.
That’s the ink machine, obviously. Seems self-explanatory enough. Once this flash is gone, though…
…we’re back in the room. So why is the floor covered in ink? Why are the candles blown out?
(BTW, that’s not Boris’s face next to the coffins – that’s the bottom of a The Dancing Demon poster. It caught me off guard, too, because there are actually two posters placed in almost the same spot, and their textures constantly glitch back and forth, making it look like the damn thing is moving.)
The next image flash we get is this:
A wheelchair. Why? Who’s in a wheelchair? Or, rather… who WAS? The chair is empty, and there are splotches of ink here and there.
Something happened here. You hope it was a miracle… but probably not.
Especially considering the inky frame of this image is the same as what you see when you’re being attacked by those ink ghouls later in Chapter 2.
After that flash fades, we get this:
This image is from my stream…
…and the second image is from this person’s stream, because it shows a clearer view into the room. What you can’t see in a still image is that Bendy is slowly leaning towards you in this shot.
What’s more, look closely at the layout here: Henry is not in the pentagram room right now. He’s close to a corner of a room, and the open doorway is right there, with boards all over it, right? Look again at the pentagram room’s layout:
The only door this could be, if it IS the same room, is the one you did NOT enter through… which is closed, and boarded up in different positions.
Finally, we get this flash:
Bendy. That’s the ol’ Bendaroo right there, and it’s the same model of Bendy that later chases you at the end of Chapter 2.
And once that nonsense is over, we’re finally back here…
…and we promptly faint.
What the Devil happened here? Are these flashbacks? Suppressed memories? Possibly even premonitions?
Guess we’ll find out later on.
