Hey hello, so I’m feeling smart today and have been thinking about some theories, or maybe just observations?? I mean idek what this posts is so let’s just beging.. get cozy ladies and gentleman this is me using my brains:
So the intro to Power is as followsi hope i got it right jskjsksj + my weird analysis
“The Universe has transformed, distorted space has been re-assemblebled, warped time has been reset, and the unpurified red force -incomprehensible, kind of like bruised or induced?- two suns with darkness… oh wait, this isn’t the right place for today, is it? hmm nah, not here, oh cute but not here…”
Naturally, it talks about the red forces and we can see someone with their hands wide open in a dark cloak, two suns losing their brightness.
Now it obviously is someone signifying the red forces but what surprised me is that its cloak is really similar to the one the boys used in Mama.
And, like Mama, it talks about two suns which only means there are two fairly similar parallel universes. And Mama also talks about time, remember: “the legends hereby divide the three in half and hide each side, hence time is overturned and space turns obscure…” and then it goes onto how the legends divided and created two suns that look alike and careless careless shoot anonymous
there are two suns, TWO SUNS, what we saw in Power, but what is so odd is that it mentions how time is reset and the space re-assembled, you would think that is good right? but I suppose it only happens when the legends come together, and remember, the suns are still dark and the red forces unpurified. meaning it hasn’t ended, I assume the war with the red forces, so either time and space are worst than before or they’re starting to get better.
But there’s something else, it says the red forces are unpurified so that means they were pure once right? or that they can become pure… which brings me to this: maybe Baekhyun is the one trying to purify them. Them or whatever turns dark. Why? Because he’s light.
And doesn’t he always sacrifice himself? We saw it in the MAMA performance actually calledthe sacrifice. Baekhyun is the only one whose light didn’t turn blue, wasn’t purified. his was red, he was the sacrifice.
And in Monster he’s the one that helps them out too, he’s undercover and seems to hold a “high position”, I would say, in the side of whoever captured exo, and he risked it anyway, to help them free
But it could also mean another thing. Maybe Exo really did become “monsters”, as in they turned dark and kind of evil, and Baekhyun releasing them represents him “purifying” them. Which brings me onto something else, which is so stupid but whatever let me think for once ..maybe Exo can become evil too, like the red forces (or are they the red forces???) and that’s why the red forces want them. That’s why Baekhyun protects them, maybe because he’s light and can never be devoured by darkness.
Also in Power, at the end, he’s falling.
Does that mean he sacrificed himself then, too? And, did you see that key??? I may be a little crazy and I may or may not have been crying at the end of the MV but I saw it .
And you know what it looks like?
That’s right my type the fucking caduceus, symbol of a doctor. And what is a doctor? A healer. And who is a haler? Lay. And what is Lay? Yixing. And what Is Yixing? Love. And what is love?? OT-FUCKING-9
OKAY maybe I went a bit overboard but there’s a possibility!!! But why the key? Is Yixing the key? (not actually lmao) Or is he trapped somewhere and that is the key that’ll set him free.? And if it is, who trapped him? The red forces?? And is that why Baekhyun feel back to earth I guess?? To get him back??
Anyway, moving on after the intro…
Which I really liked , let’s show some love to the intro!! Well, the narrator said something like this isn’t the right place for today and moved on to show different scenes.
This had me thinking. Maybe each of Exo’s songs is from a different, parallel universe/planet and that’s why they’re so diverse. How awesome is that? They can jump from one reality to another, I guess, so may be Wolf will have a comeback :’) Gasp. maybe that’s why some songs have some elements from anothers (cbx in the one and ka ching), because they’re a very similar reality to the original one! that or sm is running out of ideas lmao jk I love
So then there’s the tunnel and claw like machine
Now the part of the tunnel thingy I dONT understand much? I mean, like the point of it? idk but it was really cute and well made kudos and let’s appreciate.
However, the machine. mhmmm is it suppose to signify the red forces? I mean it was red.
And there’s more. The machine, in it’s claw, it had their orbs of power. And it used them.
Does that mean that the red forces found a way to activate their powers? Are the spheres the powers though. Or do the guys just need them to activate them?
And it’s funny, how they used the guns and just shot everywhere. and I mean everywhere, it seemed they didn’t know how to used them.
I mean, he almost shot Kyungsoo lmao.
But then there’s Kai…
he knows what he’s doing and he looks damn good doing it huhuh. And I think it’s maybe because his power (teletransportation) doesn’t usually aid him in battle other than defense so he normally uses weapons while the others use their powers. hence the others look wrecked af (and cute af)
There’s more. remember that I said the machin had the orbs? Well why didn’t he have Baekhyun’s? Is it really because he’s light?
My mom helped me out a bit on this one lmao. I think the cat is Baekhyun’s “orb”, that’s why the machine didn’t have it and it said in the teasers it couldn’t be retrieved.
Now the cat
The kitten had an L in it. Many think it’s for Lay, and it could be but I’m holding to my idea about the key lmao. There’s the theory that the kitten represents us, ExoL. And if yes, that’s SO FREAKING CUTE.
you see that fucking look and smile istg he was thinking about exoL like that one time in the take you home mv this idiot melts my heart hskdkajdh
Get this.. the kitten is Baekhyun’s orb, it’s his light. Is that supposed to mean we, ExoL, are Baekhyun’s (and exo’s) light? And if it does, maybe that has something to do with For Life I know crazy, but remember when Chanyeol enters in that room?
It’s suddenly full of lights I believe used to represent our lightsticks and, in turn, us!
There’s also this funny think my mom said. When the kitten presses the button
she said it’s like when you play a game in an arcade and it’s funny because Power is all about character cards and that.
So maybe Exo’s just playing a game with their avatars lmao that’s so random
ANYWHO… That’s been long and quite long omggg sORRY but what I do want to say is please do appreciate Power, it’s fresh and light and different and beautiful, not to mention, I do believe our boys had a blast while recording the MV and are very proud of it, we should be too!!
i want the mv to start out with that little nerdy relaxed scene , and we see them all chilling , and then someone knocks on the door and they answer it and they’re taken/warped into a parallel universe thats animated .
We have reached into a point where Tooru has started to share parallels with Haise. In the new chapter, Tooru informed Urie that he has been appointed as the training supervisor of the Oggai Squad. This order came from chairman Washuu, aka Furuta.
Now when :re began, Haise acted as the mentor and teacher of the newly formed Quinx Squad. I think this order also came from the Bureau Chief Washuu, who Yoshitoki was at the time.
The one who was a student has now become a teacher of a squad of powerful hybrid soldiers. It is interesting to think about how at first this seems similar, but when you look at it, the other situation is like a warped version of the first. You can question the ethics of the Q squad of course, but what is happening with the Oggai is a bit different. Furuta appointed a person in charge of their training that is very warped. Tooru is mentally fractured at the moment, seemingly enjoying inflicting violence to others in some degree(remember how Sasaki instead told that you can`t inflict more pain that it`s needed?), and with his response to Urie, emotionally unstable. Sasaki was too, but not to such a degree as Tooru is.
The Oggai also are a bunch of young children, who likely lived their most lives in the Sunlit Garden, or other CCG facilities. The Quinx kids had a life before they entered the academy. The Bureau Chief who made the decision is also now Furuta. Yoshitoki was probably not the nicest chap in the world, but I think you can say that Fruit-chan is in another league.
I forgot to add but I think in also both cases, these projects were made by the Bureau Chief. The Quinx by Yoshitoki and now the Oggai by Furuta.
So what I am trying to change is that Tooru is now paralleling Haise`s mentor status, both teaching powerful hybrids, and being appointed to that role by the current Bureau Chief. But it`s like a more warped version of :re`s beginning.

We’re back on the quality of season 1. What a incredible episode.
The great thing about Victoria is that she, despite her best interests, makes mistakes because of her young age. She tries her best and fails is met with opposition but she always recovers and comes back stronger.
In this episode she faced many blows. Lord M’s sickness and the worst of all Dash. A fantastic scene that showed how the relationship of Victoria and Alfred should always be, based on love and support. Knowing that they are there for each other. It will be exciting to see how Victoria emerges from this.
I suspected it last episode but this episode confirms it. Lord Alfred and Drummond are officially a sailing ship (my first one of the 2017/18 tv season). Excited to see where this goes. I hope it goes far.
Mad Max: Fury Road has some amazing scenes that will go
down in cinematic history, much like Road Warrior and Thunder Dome.
However, there’s one scene that made me cry both times I’ve watched Fury Road so
far. The brave and ferocious Imperator Furiosa, after killing
the tyrannical war-lord Immortan Joe, is dying from blood loss. Desperate for
her to live, Max takes the IV tube still connected to him from the time he
spent as a Blood Bag for the War Boy Nux, and inserts it into her in a hasty
“Max.” He tells her. “My name is Max.”
After I left the theater, I was trying to place why that
line of dialog had moved me so much. Then I remembered.
Directed by Paul Verhoeven, 1987’s Robocop is a dark
satire set in the not-so distant future of Detroit. It tells the story of Alex
Murphy, a good cop who is brutally murdered, only to be resurrected (without his
consent) as Robocop, a twisted cyborg and the ultimate crime fighting machine.
If you have not seen Robocop, I highly recommend it, as a fantastic (if not insanely
violent) film, but a huge over-arching theme in Robocop is Alex Murphy’s “resurrection.” Not just as Robocop, but as Murphy trying to remember who he used to be before
his body was warped and re-imagined to fit the needs of a corrupt and powerful system.
In the final scene of the movie, Robocop saves the day,
shooting the film’s main antagonist (the corrupt senior president of OCP, the
company that made him) and rescuing the OCP Chairman. The Chairman looks at
Robocop in approval and says “Nice shooting son. What’s your name?” To which
Robocop replies, “Murphy.” The film ends right then and there and it’s my
favorite ending scene in cinematic history outside of Margaret Dumont getting
pelted with fruit in Duck Soup. It’s simply perfect and sums up the entire arc.
Murphy has found his humanity again. Fucking perfect.
Much like Robocop, Max Rockatansky’s story arc in Fury
Road is not so much about him saving the day (that’s Furiosa’s job), it’s about
him discovering his humanity again. From the first scene in Fury Road,
Max has been reduced to little more than a feral animal. He even admits as much
in his narration that he’s been reduced to simply “survive.” The world Max inhabits reaffirms this as well, having him reduced to a “blood bag,” and then parading him around as a fancy hood ornament. By the time he meets Furiosa and the wives, he’s muzzled,
grunting and barely comprehensible in the words he is able to make.
Through Furiosa’s trust of him and the compassion of the
wives, Max is able to regain his humanity with his acts of heroics,
selflessness and altruism; his final act of willingly giving Furiosa his blood
(which was originally being taken from him without his consent) finally
restores his humanity and therefore his identity. Max has done what is nearly impossible: He has managed to be kind and compassionate in a world that is not. He is no
longer a thing, or a beast. “Max.” He says. “My name is Max.”
Now there’s a revelatory line! Peridot has no idea who Rose’s movement was. This could mean either that Rose’s crew managed to kill everybody and keep them from getting back to the Gempire…but no, then the empire would have tried to reconnect the Galaxy Warp sooner to re-establish contact and all this would have come to a head long before Steven was born.
It also can’t just be that Peridot wasn’t paying attention in history class, because she’s got the files on Earth right there. They’re relevant to her job. And, hell, you’d think some big Gem civil war would have made its way into the species’ knowledge pool at some point.
…no, this information is being suppressed.
Maybe it’s just so the ruling class can prevent dissent within the ranks; a successful Gem rebellion can’t be good news for their rule. It could also be because of the involvement of that Gem Rose is squaring off with in the mural; I theorized she was some kind of Gem leader, especially since she’s portrayed elsewhere on the mural with the same mask as sits on the Temple statue:
Either she died, or she made it back to the Gempire. If she died, the ruling class would want that fact hushed up. If she lived, she’s been licking her metaphorical wounds for a while, and either she’s behind this expedition to see if Rose is still alive, or this was a routine maintenance check performed by some newbie that didn’t know not to mess with the Earth warp that went to hell in a handbasket.
