- Mark falls. his neck & back make cracking noises as he’s hit with impact, just like us.
- his eyes go dark, like a moment of reflection on the past. Mark is broken. Mark wasn’t in a good mental state. gambling, a thing he did too often, just being the tip of the iceberg.
“It’s not fair, is it?” — Mark The Manor Owner Who Killed Markiplier: Chapter 4
but what exactly isn’t fair?
- Y/N being killed wasn’t fair and that’s what this addresses exactly.
- this is directed at himself too.
- it’s not fair to be subjected to a life of pain. no one should have to go through those things.
- but this in no means says that it isn’t fair that Mark is dead. Mark knows very well that it’s fair, and probably for the best, but he’s selfish. he takes Damien’s body.
“I always thought it was the house but…I never thought he’d fall this far.” — Celine the Seer, Who Killed Markiplier: Chapter 4
what does she mean by “fall this far.”?
it’s certainly nothing literal.
- Celine is most likely referring to the idea of Mark having a mental illness, such as depression, seeing as Mark did so many terrible things without reason, that resulted in addiction (gambling being our main example, the second example is the fact that from what we saw, Mark liked being in control so much, that he’s basically a megalomaniac)
- Celine is maybe referring to the idea that Mark was a dangerous man that made terrible choices such as the obvious trouble he had gotten himself into, often being described as selfish.
“Just let me in. We can fix this. Together.” — Damien the Mayor, Who Killed Markiplier: Chapter 4
- Y/N trusts both Celine and Damien with their life, apparently. Y/N agrees to this plan.
but then some interesting parallels show up.
“HE PROMISED HE WOULD LET ME IN AGAIN!” — Dark, A Date With Markiplier: The ??? Ending
but who is this he that’s being referred to?
- a common theory is the fact that Mark is still walking around in Damien’s body, and Mark promised to give it back, but hasn’t followed through yet.
“You just need to let me in…” — Dark, A Date With Markiplier: The Freedom Ending
- the last time this was told to you was in WKM. Damien and Celine did it for the sake of Willam.
what if it’s the same motive?
- just like the first time Celine and Damien asked you to let them in, you wouldn’t have gotten a choice in the matter. Dark wants to save you, and Wilford, knowing damn well Mark is not a good person, as evidenced by The Meta Ending in ADWM, and WKM: Chapter 1.
- Dark is enlisting y/n, the former district attorney and current viewer, to help get Damien’s body back. That was Dark’s quest to begin with.
- these cracks are strange. all staticky and weblike.
the more you look at it, the worse it gets
- Y/N, the district attorney, now becomes the viewer.
- Dark might have made Y/N the viewer so they will be safe from further trauma (emotional and physical)

— Dark, Don’t Play This Game
and this is true. no one will truly understand Dark until we have all the information ever about his character. we can use what we know and speculate to create ideas, but at the end of the day, it’s all unknown and fuzzy.
