I watched it again
I’m feeling really weird and am kinda afraid right now because of my anxiety and stuff but I noticed one more thing:
We see the hand of the person filming.
That’s Mark’s hand.
How do I know? In the “thank you” video he said that HE shot it. And it looks just like his own hand at the end of WKM– the same bend in the thumb, the same little knob on his wrist, you can even kind of see it in the veins.
What if Dark was speaking to Mark all this time?
In every one of the REALLY old Darkiplier videos (mind you, named similarly– “don’t blink”, “don’t move”, and now “don’t remember”), we see the two of them interacting, in a way. Why would this time be any different?
And it would make sense why we don’t really understand the whole “Remember when we first met?” thing. Dark might be talking about when he and Mark first met.
It would explain the “I hate you”, “I saved you”, and “I said we were going to do great things together” lines, too. The first one, well, of course– Dark’s been pushed aside, replaced, AND mocked by Mark. The second one might be referring to Dark’s popularity on the channel, claiming himself as the reason Mark’s channel picked up speed. And the last one might be from a one-on-one encounter the two of them had that we didn’t get to witness.
Even the “Go back to sleep” line can be explained.
Mark has nightmares almost every night, and sometimes he wakes up but remains in the dream at the same time.
Dark would have no choice but to interfere with the dream plane if he wanted to speak with Mark directly– if that whole “Dark interferes with videos to get closer to reality” theory is true.
Like I said I’m not totally sure about this, but I knew his hand looked familiar. This has been Paranoia Jim, coming to you live from the Anxiety Hole™, back to you in the studio, Jim
