Weirdmageddon Pt 2
Looks like /gfg/ was wrong again!
>only 1 episode left
It's Breaking Bad all over again, it's going to be a bunch of bullshit and plot armor that solves the main conflict of the series.
FUCK THESE RUSHED FINALES.
Bill's "most diabolical trap" was destroyed by the will of two children. A fucking dimension-twisting DEMON should not be beaten by that.
I hope I'm wrong. I hope I'm dead wrong, but at this rate I actually expect the finale to end with a "we believed in ourselves and won" scenario.
I don't want the show to end like that. I'm fucking livid that they could break out of that bubble like that.
>hurdurr so angry at a kids show
I was promised feels and got cliched childhood memory scenes.
i work with a weeaboo who likes to pretend he's edgy and he is jelous AF about everything i have done in my life ...you remind me of him.

Still unanswered questions:
what does the symbol of Stan’s “tattoo” mean?
What about the order of the holy mackerel?
Are we going to learn anything more about the symbol on Stan’s hat?
What does Bill REALLY want?
why was there food and supplies for years into the future in the bunker?
why do the Northwests have a tapestry of Bill in their mansion?
What was Ford doing for the 30 years after he went through the portal?
What about Dipper and Pacifica?
What is the significance, if any, of Dipper’s birthmark on his forehead?
What is Dipper’s real name?
The last thread's been on the image limit for at least 20 minutes
I don't drop by that often outside of episode days but do you guys just textpost on a fucking imageboard until page 10?
Guys, Dipper didn't actually want what would come with Ford's apprenticeship. It was too much of an extreme. I don't know why this surprises you when the way Ford operates and lives was never portrayed as a good thing. Dipper decided he didn't want that for good reason.
He never said he was abandoning his dreams, just that he decided he wanted to grow up with Mabel and see where things went from there. They both have to look hard at what they want and grow the hell up, but they decided to do it together. People are talking about Ford's apprenticeship like it was Dipper's dream and Dipper just confirmed, clearly of his own volition and not just because Mabel, that it's not really his dream.
Get over it. The way Ford lives sucks and his apprenticeship would do nothing but isolate Dipper and make him a destructive loser like Ford is.
>Looks like /gfg/ was wrong again!
Huh... guess the middle and eyes will be the last two.
I'm just disappointed
I knew it was going to be a bit rushed, but man oh fucking man they regressed back to the "Dipper sacrifices thing he wants for Mabel" card that they've played so many fucking times.
I thought they wised up to it since Sock Opera
A few weeks ago I posted my worry about the resolution being something like
>STOP LIKING WHAT YOU LIKE DIPPER
>YOUR TASTES A SHIT DIPPER
and it hurts to be right on this
>unfired Chekhov's Gun with the Wendy-age-down thing
>Mabel was as stupid and unreasonable as the MRAs usually make her out to be
>victory by apology
>Yo Gabba Gabba squad has been sitting around for weeks doing nothing because "they cant leave"
>episode felt like a total rehash
>probably the worst paced penultimate to a series finale I've ever seen
in Roiland you put my hand in warm water while i was sleeping and i peed again!!
To bad there wasn't much time to show Pacifica's survival skills.
>Yea, she made it to the finish.
With the new episode being shit and the sad news of the show ending soon the Alex shitposting will only rise to it's peak.
This is a good day.
guys I'm not ready for the show to end like this
all that Dipper adventures that we'll never get to explore
there was so much summer after Into the Bunker and yet nothing
>Stan leader of the resistance
As it should be
it's not a tatt, he just got branded by part of ford's machinery. it's otherdimensionshit.
the symbol on stan's hat is a shriner symbol of some kind
bill really wants to fuck up some shit
literally what bunkers are for
bill has been around for a while, appearing to various folk
the rest of your questions are pretty valid
oh boy dipper's going to be a fucking loser in high school with only one friend, what a great future
>>a Disney cartoon wasn't scary and grimdark the whole episode
>>waaaahh this was shit 0/10!!
those are literally no one's complaints of this episode, but I admire your avant-garde shitposting
I'm betting that most of those will not be adressed because they :
a). were never meant to be seriously explored
b). they know that leaving them open is more interesting
c). would rather give weight to more pressing questions
i didnt notice Candy there the first time, someone told me she was turned into stone in the last episode
at least she has a chance at saving the finale.
but who we are we kidding its going to be full of padippica shit because thats what the plebs want and alex kneecapped the entire season to change the plot for those redditors
Its an interesting parallel between the stand twins and the pines twins. At first dip was meant to be like Stanford, the mystery master with a mind of iron, and mable like granule stan, a goofball with charisma. But here in the latter eps it appears thing are more backwards. With Stanford saying things like “I wish I was more like you when I was younger” to dipper in the saucer scene. and mable being more methodical in the unicorn ep.
it appears the pines twins are more of a miss mash of both of the older towns younger selves. and the older twin appear to have converged more as well.
Lesson: as we grow, we grow twards each other.

Like, any character between the letters will do.
>Looks like /gfg/ was wrong again!
But I've been arguing against that theory all along.
Because it was stupid.
The series is going to end with so many unanswered questions that Alex will probably "answer" via an AMA or something.
I just CAN'T understand why anyone would defend this episode. So far in the series i've liked every episode. Seriously. I have always rewatched every single one over and over.
But man this one was just terrible. The only good part was the ending, but outside of that:
>Nothing interseting happened
>Mabel was an asshole
>Mabeland was unbearable and cliché
>The force field around Gravity Falls was never explained
>IT'S RIGHT BEFORE THE FUCKING FINALE
This is not a good time to be shitting out this type of episodes. Alex step up your game please.
>inb4 fuck off sug
>inb4 manzi get out hurr
Well, this is embarrising.
Literally no one is complaining that it wasnt dark enough faggot. we're complaining about the cliche ending and the MABEL ALWAYS GETS HE R WAY solution that has happened like a bunch of times already. Theres only one more episode after this, it was her time to get called out on how selfish she was and she didn't.

See you for the
hour long finale.
>not understanding pacing
There needed to be attention given to the kids issues because that's what the show has always been about. Now there's an hour for them to put their character resolutions in action.
Also RIP Dip and Fordy 100 years
It's kind of poetic in a way. Ford threw Stan under the bus and lost connection with him over a "dream" that was basically just a whim. Literally a whim, considering the short timeframe. Dipper took the opposite road and refused to do that. I'd take a wild guess as to who turns out happier. Compromise is the best game.
Dipper rejecting Roach Patrol Wendy
Riches to Rags Pacifica at the shack
WenDip's last cell is burned and it can never regenerate or be cloned.
Are you guys mad because Dipper didn't choose to be Ford's apprentice or that the episode was kinda lackluster?
It was probably some stupid shut that Ford designed for some kind of existencial joke.
Possibly answered in the last episodes.
Wasn't that supposed to be only his "symbol"?
Bill's basically a teenager that wants to bring chaos and party to the world.
Because Ford was worried Bill could return and bring the Weirdmageddon earlier/the Shapeshifter was too dangerous.
Possibly answered in the next episodes.
Possibly answered in the next episodes.
Probably will become allies
if not a couple.
Posibly something just weird, as Ford's six fingers.
Possibly answered in the next episodes
They had to kill that zombie Wen/Dipp....AGAIN!
I think everyone would've liked it more if it was aired with the last episode. That way the level of action would've been more balanced instead of having weeks in between what was clearly meant to be one whole episode.
>I'm disappointed we didn't learn anything about the Wheel.
>The force field around Gravity Falls was never explained
You just don't get it, do you?
These things are intertwined
The force that calls the weirdness to Gravity Falls is also a force that contains the weirdenss
and Bill's wheel is the key to unlocking that bubble
I'm glad I watched the series after it ended, and not with /tv/. What an awful experience that must have been with everyone complaining about almost everything in the last episode aside from Walt's dialogue with his wife and the last two minutes or so.
>THE SHOW IS ABOUT THE TWINS LIFE IN GRAVITY FALLS NOT PIETMONT
>half the episode dedicated to some pointless (albeit cute) flashbacks to Dipper and Mabel's past
>are we not allowed to make a new thread at the image limit?
Correct. Normally, genreals are expected to wait for page 10. If they can't pace themselves, it's just too bad. New threads before page 10 are normally deleted.
But the mods consistently make exceptions to that rule on days a new episode airs.
Yeah, that valentine made me uncomfortable.
1) Nothing, it was brand he got in the fight with Ford.
2) Useless trivia, which isn't even canon
3) Not anymore than Mabel's rainbow or Dipper's pine tree
4) To fuck shit up
5) In case Weirdmageddon happened
6) This deserves an answer
7) Traveling through dimensions
8) What about them?
9) Probably none, just like Ford's sixth finger
10) Useless trivia
Because Dipper didn't choose to be Ford's apprentice. The episode was great in terms of character development but OH NO DIPPER WAS WRONG ABOUT SOMETHING AND DIDN'T FUCK OVER MABEL REEEEEEEEEEE
I posted that theory in the reaction thread already 30 seconds after we saw the scene, and I just wish they showed the Wheel for at least one frame (except the intro one)
Update your Alex shitposting file, /co/mrade.
i-i-its just because the middle act is always the weakest
This episode makes more sense when you realize the four episodes were supposed to be a movie. You can't have things be balls to the wall for an entire film, you need to take time to focus on character development.
People are so fired up for Dipper telling Mabel to go fuck herself and projecting so hard onto him that they disregard what Dipper canonically wants.
The show exists outside Mabel hate circlejerk.
>gnomes are a literal copy-paste of each other
breaking bad finale = if season 3 happened after Ford and Dipper defeat Bill and his Gabbas and its all about Ford sacrificing his life to save them from the Manotaurs
Terrible fucking episode. And no, I'm not a "Alex is a Hack" shitposter. I usually like the show a lot, but that was really dissapointing.
4/10, only points are for the flashbacks and hugs, only good part of the episode.
That's exactly what it is. A ton of losers projecting so hard that they completely disregard what the characters actually want. Who's the Mabel you're mad at in real life, family? Your mom, your sister, that girl who rejected you?
>SHE GAVE HIM HER VALENTINES AND HE WANTS TO SEE HER HIT PUBERTY
>PINECEST CONFIRMED EVERYBODY
>PUREST SHIP CONFIRMED
all fanfics are now canon. especially the ones that contradict each other.
you fuckers don't deserve this show.
>BUT BUT MUH HEADCANON OF A 12 YEARS OLD GIRL HAVING GIANT BREAST
>THEY DIN'T EXPLAIN ANYTHING
>THIS FCKING MANLET IS FULL OF TUMBLR
oh dear god! i swear ...one day i will kidnap one of you, beat the shit out of you until you dead....and then kill my self by shooting my dick off and then my brains.
>it ends like every fucking Mabel episode ends, with Dipper sacrificing thing he wants for Mabel.
Dipper doesn't fucking want to be Ford's apprentice, he wants to go to college and start his own ghost hunting show
After Dipper shaves his head, is his Big Dipper birthmark visible? I don't remember seeing it.
you know, these threads are a lot more interesting when you read all the comments in Bill's voice
on another note, what do you think of my mousepad /gfg/?
It's good and the only reason people say it's bad is because their expectations were sky high which is just a symptom of the show's success. In any other cartoon an episode like this would be considered amazing.
YOU THINK YOU CAN FAKE THIS EPISODE. YOU CAN'T. IT EXISTS. IT'S SHITTY AND IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH ALEX.
THIS EPISODE IS SHIT, SHIT, SHIT. I DON'T WANT MY FAVORITE SHOW TO END THIS WAY, IN A RUSHED, CLICHÉ AND HURR DURR BELIEVE IN URSELF HURR DURR WAY.
IF YOU GAVE TWO SHITS ABOUT THIS SHOW YOU WOULD UNDERSTAND.
>what does the symbol of Stan’s “tattoo” mean?
already answered, burn mark from Ford's Machine.
If anything it's an alchemy symbol that, most likely has something to do with bill.
>What about the order of the holy mackerel?
Might be answered in last episode.
>Are we going to learn anything more about the symbol on Stan’s hat?
Chances are it's some fez that Stan somehow got or conned, it's probably a shriners sybol.
>What does Bill REALLY want?
What doesn't he want? Aside from being stopped by the time bubble he's pretty much aiming to own the world and throw it into total chaos.
>why was there food and supplies for years into the future in the bunker?
Ford was paranoid of Bill and built the bunker, he never expected to get shoved into a fucking portal in a fight with Stan. Not hard to figure out.
>why do the Northwests have a tapestry of Bill in their mansion?
Simple, filthy rich capitalists family that just thought it was good decoration that could fetch a pretty price. Why else would they have something that has no personal value to them?
>What was Ford doing for the 30 years after he went through the portal?
Might be answered next episode.
>What about Dipper and Pacifica?
If this isn't resolved next episode, then nothing comes of it. Though last time I checked they are good friends since NWMN.
>What is the significance, if any, of Dipper’s birthmark on his forehead?
Well, that's how he got his nickname for one, that's the only significance it really has.
Bear in mind Dipper and Mabel are both pretty weird in general, Dipper's case is that he looks like a loser with a weird ass birthmark he got, but incredibly smart and strong.
>What is Dipper’s real name?
Ask me what Arnold's last name is, or what Edd's head looks like under his hat.
No one knows. It's either irrelevant to the story, or it will be answered next episode. Personally I wish it was one of those things left unanswered just for the sake of having something unanswered.
As the sun sets on this series, this diamon in the ruff. I shall miss our chats on the lore and characters that made this Mystery Action genre a jolly ride.
Cheers till the next and final episode gents.
People were expecting it to be all action, but it was 90% character development. Thats what fucking happened.
It was a solid episode, the twins future and attitudes to growing up have been a part of the series since ep 2, this was a very needed ep.
Why are you strawmaning an argument here? It was a weak, boring 22 minutes not befitting the penultimate episode in the middle of Armageddon.
Like people have mentioned, it's similar to the Gideon face turn, just poor writing to hurry along the resolution.
I'm not a fan of it, but I get that we need to get the setup first before the big finale, and IMO, despite the episode being kinda shitty, the build-up is perfect. Hinting at the statues possibly returning to normal was an amazing touch.
basically its like 30 straight minutes of Mabel's "kitten rocket punches" joke
I'M SORRY, I GOTTA RANT ABOUT THIS
FUCK THIS STUPID ASS BULLSHIT TUMBLR FEMINIST BULLSHIT, IT'S ALWAYS DIPPERS FAULT, WHEN WILL IT BE MABEL'S FAULT? FUCK YOU ALEX, YOU MANLET LITTLE FUCKING LIBERAL SHIT. THIS IS WHY I FUCKING HATE THE WESTERN WORLD.
ALL THIS SHIT DOES IS TEACH MEN THAT IT'S ALWAYS YOUR FAULT, YOU SHOULD GIVE UP YOUR OWN FUCKING DREAMS FOR A WOMAN NO MATTER WHAT, EVEN IF IT'S THEIR FAULT. WELL FUCK YOU
WHEN MY MOTHER CHEATED ON MY DAD, SHE SAID THAT IT WAS HIS FAULT, THAT'S WHY I STILL HATE THIS WHORE, SHE CHEATED ON MY DAD AND TOOK HALF OF HIS SHIT, FUCK YOU. FUCK YOU ALEX. I'M DONE WATCHING THIS SHOW, YOU'RE THE WORST FUCKING PERSON EVER.
>light up keyboard and mouse
>old tupperware container still laying out with food bits still coating the inside
>one dollar mouse pad
Is this fake?
Fuck me. The first thing I thought of when I saw Mabel's outfit in this scene was that DP image of Mabel dressed as a raver.
I don't even like DP. Th-thanks a lot, Pinecest posters.
I think its a good time to call it quits
You know full well the only answers you're going to get will be polarized meme answers.
There was no fucking character development, Mable only agrees to leave after Dipper does what she wants, LIKE THEY ALWAYS DO.
Mable's "oh but you could, like, stay with ford if you want" doesn't even make any sense and is only there to throw a bone at something that was never going to happen anyway because of Alex's hackery.
>WHEN MY MOTHER CHEATED ON MY DAD, SHE SAID THAT IT WAS HIS FAULT, THAT'S WHY I STILL HATE THIS WHORE, SHE CHEATED ON MY DAD AND TOOK HALF OF HIS SHIT, FUCK YOU.
I knew it. Anti-mabel fags confirmed for projecting.
Ooh and one more thing, did you guys catch that the thing with a thousand and one eyes was based on that fan made possible Bill form?
>WHEN MY MOTHER CHEATED ON MY DAD, SHE SAID THAT IT WAS HIS FAULT, THAT'S WHY I STILL HATE THIS WHORE, SHE CHEATED ON MY DAD AND TOOK HALF OF HIS SHIT, FUCK YOU. FUCK YOU ALEX. I'M DONE WATCHING THIS SHOW, YOU'RE THE WORST FUCKING PERSON EVER.
I'm in fucking tears right now. Holy shit she probably cheated because your father must be as autistic as you are
Hahaha holy shit. Does this confirm that Mabel haters are all buttblasted MRA's?
The westernization of the world created more power and opportunities for men, faggot. Go to anywhere that hasn't been colonized and you'll scream that it's a tumblr paradise too.
looks like someone owes us an
E X P L A N A T I O N
Mabel was selfish, but Dipper decided he didn't want the apprenticeship. It just wasn't his dream like he thought it was, and valuing your family more is a valid choice and not just being a doormat. People equating that just to Mabel to be mad are ignoring what Dipper said he wanted.
This... this might be a red herring after all...
You're insane man. Dipper made a choice, his own choice. It was a follow up to the button with the portal.
Both twins got a choice at something they didn't really want but that would have made them seemingly happy. Dipper was for a while convinced he wanted to go with ford, but he really didn't. Mable thought she wanted to stay in the bubble, but she didn't.
They got each other to realize what they really wanted to get the fuck out, and fix the town.
>Not 6 Dream Mabels with 6 clone Dippers
Dipper staying in Gravity Falls to be Ford's apprentice was a snap decision he made because the allure of being SUPER COOL SUPERNATURAL FIGHTER LAD was dangled right in front of him in the moment. He didn't think about the impact it'd have on the rest of his life at all. If he took it, it would just be a relapse of Stan/Ford where Dipper isolates himself and drives himself away from Mabel, and Mabel spends her life miserable without the support Dipper gives. A rift would grow between their relationship, bigger and bigger, until finally it snaps and one of them pushes the other into the proverbial "portal," something happening that there'd be no coming back from.
Madrilista you glorious bastard! I love you man!
Time to watch it! AGAIN!
>The westernization of the world created more power and opportunities for men, faggot.
Uh not now, faggot. Are you serious? In the past yes but if you're really going to say that men aren't in the shit with child support, marriage etc etc then you're a fucking retard.
If a woman can't lift 50 pounds at her job, the guy who gets the equal pay has to help lift it and if he complains then he's fired and replaced with another guy who won't complain about it.
In child support, you're fucked up the ass even if the woman was at fault. That previous guy was autistic but he was right, So please shut the fuck up.
>People getting angry that Dipper isn't going to be Ford's apprentice
I feel like a big point of the back half of the season has been to show how Ford's life isn't one to aspire to. Look at where it led him-- isolated from his family and everyone else. Family is a major theme of GF, so of course Dipper was ultimately going to choose his sister over isolation. They're avoiding the mistakes of the older Pines.
>the unicorn is here
they're going to ride that cunt to battle aren't they?
how did you think this fucking disney channel show about two 12 year olds would end?
This is a kids show, a great one but ultimately still a kids show, and you can't escape all the morals bullshit that goes with that.
Seriously anon what did you expect to happen
Too bad, I was hoping that would've been Bills final form...oh well.
>DP called it..
GUYS STOP SAYING MABEL IS SELFISH THAT GETS ME ANGRY ITS DEMEANING TO WMEN THEYRE EQUALS BUT A LITTLE MORE EQUAL COME ON ITS 2015 WHY ARE YOU GUYS SUCH MYSOGYNISTS
JUST ACCEPT MABEL IS RIGHT IN RUINING THE WORLD AND ONLY GIVING UP ON HER BUBBLE AFTER HER BROTHER GAVE UP ON HIS DREAM SHITLORDS GIRLS ARE PRINCESSES THAT NEED TO BE PANDERED TO
DON'T FORGET THAT IF YOU DO SOMETHING THAT THE WOMAN DOESN'T LIKE THEN IT'S RAPE
IT'S RAAAAAPPPEE, YOU COULD BE DOING EVERYTHING FINE BUT IF SHE DOESN'T LIKE YOU, SHE COULD SCREAM RAPE.
I BET MABEL WOULD DO THE SAME THING TO DIPPER, SHE'LL SCREAM RAPE SO HE SUFFERS, THAT'S WHAT KIND OF WHORE SHE IS
I mostly marathoned the series today since the channel was showing the episodes in order. I went in more or less blind and I don't fucking get what anyone might have gotten out of it. The show is written extremely poorly; for kids. I noticed every 2 minutes was an awkard or observational joke, every commercial break ended on one of those and every cut coming back explained what was going on. The characters didn't feel much like they were actually dialoguing, more like setting up awakward jokes. The sister is just 'quirky the character', the brother is 'a sensible pre-teen' which is becoming some bizarre boring stereotype, ie OTGW, AT. Soos is just a fat manchild put in to resonnate with that particular audience. Stanley is the only tolerable character and he has no room to do much with the rest of the cast.
I've been in maybe one or two of these threads, I never saw anyone ever discussing the show or any possible lore which only leads me to believe there isn't as much to the show as it wants you to think. I mean it's... okay. For a kid's show which is very much what it is. I watched it today trying to figure out why it had such an apparently large fanbase but I don't get it. What's there to feel from this show? Nothing is setup properly, the characters don't feel or act real, it's just meh
As disappointed as I am with 2B as a whole, the show and this general are a million times better than any fanbase that willingly goes to a board called >>>/trash/ to argue over which alien rock lesbian they want to get keked by.
And who do you think created those shitty child support laws by assuming that women would be the only ones who'd be capable at being good parents? I'll give you a hint, it ain't women. And this is from someone whose own mother skipped out on child support. Get a damn clue and look at the origins of things.
This is dipper's version of getting accepted into the super elite academy. I just really hope his whole decision process isn't just "well, mabel wants it" versus what he actually wants.
That's exactly what's going to happen. She's probably going to tell Dipper it's okay for him to be Ford's apprentice
assuming Ford survivesand although the twins will miss each other, they'll realize they need to go on separate paths to truly he happy.
Have we ever seen this page?
I take it back, this one is much much better.
I'd link for you but I think it was taken off the booru for some reason. I have the full collage on my home computer, but maybe another anon knows the actual artist.
>Just an hour episode left
>Stan and Ford have barely interacted since Ford appeared
>Implying that could ever be wrapped up in a satisfying way in far less than an hour considering everything else that's going to be happening.
>It'll be quick and cheesy.
Calling it now. Ford and Stan's relationship arc will be known as the biggest wart on the face of a great cartoon.
at least they managed a decent redemption arc anon :^)
Or they could visit each other and maintain a good sibling relationship over the distance using the myriad social media and other communication methods that exist today.
You can't live with your siblings forever, things change, people have to pursue their own lives at some point. Staying with your family just because it makes you more comfortable than making your own way is a very unhealthy attitude to have.
>I've been in maybe one or two of these threads, I never saw anyone ever discussing the show or any possible lore
wow it's almost like we had all these lore discussions months and years ago when the clues were there but not yet revealed in the episode, and are no longer talking about them because they've come to pass
>they're going to ride that cunt to battle aren't they?
C-celestabellebethabelle redemption arc confirmed?
>Mabel should just be a completely different person
The entire point was that Dipper apprenticing with Ford was his own personal "bubble," something unrealistic that seems nice at the time, but in truth is just running away from life.
Don't remember this in the journals either
For me, the episode felt underwhelming, as if it was the result having to compress an unbroken hour-long episode into a half-hour-with-commercials time slot. I still feel like there's more to explore in not only the inner workings of Mabeland, but also the repressed dichotomy in Dipper and Mabel's relationship as well. Not to say I expected anything on the level of an introspective character piece, but I'd have appreciated some callbacks to Mabel screwing over Dipper sometimes.
But since I'm in the camp that what would have been three seasons and a movie got compressed into two seasons and no movie, I can't exactly give much fault.
If I had to give it an arbitrary number scoring, this episode would be a 7/10.
Probably something Ford did in case something like this would happen... or Stan really did read the journals, and knew how to act in case something like this would happen.
Besides Sock Opera, and her imaginary world, and also those valentine cards and probably plenty of time she would have wasted on searching boyfriends... it seems too low as a count.
However, notice that Mabel's dream world was something like a complete universe at her command. She ended up sacrificing way more if you consider that it was her own reality where everything she wanted could happen.
Which, being honest, that's something that plenty of guys here WOULDN'T DO if given that chance.
Hell, what she did with Soos, Wendy, and Dipper's dreams shows that she really thought she was right in living in that world, and she thought being this powerful was way better than everything else.
I mean, for me, this episode shows something that social media and the internet has given us... the thought of feeling like Mabel, like the guy who can do no wrong, and that we can fix shit just changing something simple.
But Dipper, and as a whole the reality can offer us so much.
We just have to accept that sometimes our plans will have to change, and move along.
>NWHS was the peak of the series
sorry alex ily but this is shit
What /gfg/ thinks it happened:
>Dipper: Alright Mabel let's get outta here.
>Mabel: NO, GO AWAY DIPSHIT. I HATE YOU, I'VE ALWAYS HATED YOU, FUCK YOU AND YOUR FRIENDS.
>Dipper: OH NO POOR MABEL, LOOK I'M GONNA SACRIFICE MY DREAMS FOR YOU.
>Mabel: ALRIGHT, LET'S GET OUTTA HERE, FEMINISM WINS AGAIN!
What actually happened:
>Dipper: Alright Mabel let's get outta here.
>Mabel: Nah bro, fuck reality, you can stay here with me if you want in my perfect world.
>Dipper: It ain't healthy. Look here's a bunch of memories of us being based together back in reality.
>Mabel: Woah, you're right. I was such a fool. I need to grow up.
>Dipper: You know what? This whole thing made me realize how stupid this staying with Ford idea was. It's not a good dream. It ain't healthy either.
>Mabel: No, no, you can keep your dream, Dipper!
>Dipper: Nah, sis, it's my decision. Now let's go kick some triangular ass.
>And who do you think created those shitty child support laws by assuming that women would be the only ones who'd be capable at being good parents? I
Yeah the 1% did that shit, faggot. Nice try. It's to keep the families apart and have a one world government to enslave us. These types of laws aren't even fucking easy to overule since the government behind the scenes run the show. There have been acts, AFTER ACTS to overturn them, yet were thrown down.
These weren't done by blue collar men, these were done by top government officials. No one wanted this fucking law.
READ, READ UP ON THE TRUE ORIGINS, LIBERAL
Are you that same anon who keeps ranting in capslock? Look, I know emotions are running high, and I won't invalidate your sentiment, but repeated blocks of all capitals kind of make you look like a real loon. Even for here.
At least we got more Pyronica. She didn't do anything, but she was there.
Clues for what? I don't remember there being any clues foreshadowing a 6-fingered twin of Stan's or an Evil Triangle. The symbol was shoved in all over the place but unless you guys got info outside the show you shouldn't have had anyway of knowing it was going to be a character.
I picture you hunched over a keyboard, sweating profusely, seething with rage. Dorito crumbs fly from mouth with each exhale, while the fedora perched atop your head slides down into your greasy, unwashed hair. Because that's the sort of person who gets this fucking angry about a cartoon.
it's not running away from life, it's not a fucking bubble
it's a path to an uncertain future, just like going back to home with Mabel is
him going on to this path isn't him sitting dormant win a lotus eater machine, it's him moving forward with his life in a direction that isn't the one Mabel wants him to
Stay mad faggots.
One thing, you i'll never touch a a giant tiddie from a 12 years old girl.
/gfg/ has way too many issues to watch this show about kids struggling to grow up. Probably because of their own issues with growing up.
>the moral of the story is to be a normie like stan the criminal and mabel the sex-crazy simpleton and not live out the paranormal mystery solving life with a supergenius
I would not fucking mind Mable if she actually sacrificed for Dipper as much as he's sacrificed for her. This whole season was about her slowly realizing "shit, I'm actually not a great sister or person in general" but nothing as come from it.
GOOD THINGS FROM THE EPISODE:
>Bill being pissed about getting c-ucked by the bubble
>The flashback scenes
>Soos seeing a dad that wants to hang out with him
>Callbacks to Season 1
>Too much time in Mabeland
>Penultimate episode and nothing was revealed
>Have to wait MONTHS to see what happens next
>Episode overall felt a bit rushed
If wasn't the penultimate episode, I would've gave it a 7/10
What? He's not leaving her to die or completely cutting her off. He's getting an education and guaranteed future job that he thought he would really love that requires him to move away. they can still talk over the phone, internet, video calls, visits, etc. That is hardly abandonment.
Fucking this. People are missing the whole point.
While in the process of telling Mabel to reevaluate her feelings and understand what she really wants and what she doesn't want, he did the same. It wasn't about coaxing Mabel to leave, it was Dipper making a realization at the same time he was telling Mabel to make a realization.
The hateboner is so hard that they couldn't get this basic damn message.
>The show is written extremely poorly; for kids
>every cut coming back explained what was going on.
i hate this so much. the shitty expository dialog is a hallmark of alex's hack writing. it's pretty much reserved exclusively for dipper and ford which makes their characters irredeemable. i can't even believe this thread is defending dipper right now, he's the shittiest kid protag in a cartoon ever.
Well nobody I'm interested in was featured at all except Stan and he was surrounded by people I don't give a fuck about. Anyone i liked is either dead or turned to stone so goodbye to all my friends on GFG we had fun for a little while before Alex clearly lost his fucking mind and went off the rails.
Then I retract my meme response.... all I'm saying is from an objective viewpoint, there was actual decent character development in this
As an aside, people that accuse other people of being Alex shills/cronies: man I wish....if a network actually cared about the mass opinion of a Mongolian throat-singing board enough to pay NEETs to do what they already do for free, you BET I'd sign up for that money
To Mable its abandoning. She relies on Dipper for attention, affection, and just general happiness because half the time, they're all each other has had. The Halloween episode in season 1 was the first example of this.
Honestly the whole scene would have been much stronger if one of them had brought up Stan and Ford. I always thought they'd mention it being a weight on their minds considering the threat of them growing apart and knowing what happened between their Grunkles. It's disappointing that they didn't say anything about it.
This. I mean, yeah, it sounds cool to research the paranormal, but you'd miss out on so much. I missed out on a lot of typical teenage stuff due to my desire to be an edgy cunt. I sat alone, browsing the internet a lot. I was really lonely. And that's what Dipper realized would happen. If he stayed cooped up in a basement with an old man, he'd just end up immensely lonely. And speaking from experience, as someone who spent his teenage years alone for the most part, it's not a good way to live.
