Gracie Күн бұрын
If the keeper didn't report anything weird during those two weeks, I wonder if the principal keeper paid him to not say anything and then murdered the other two. Since he had asked just before arriving at the lighthouse with the others whether they could do an experiment to see how long it would take someone to get there between the thing being reported and them actually investigating. Since it was denied, maybe he opted to just bribe the keeper to keep silent. Since he wanted to know how long it would take for someone to come investigating, maybe he was planning out how long he'd have from the time he'd stop turning on the light (leaving the island) until someone would start looking for him. The journal said he was quiet, so what if he was just nervous about his plans. He could have drugged the other two which made them hallucinate and see the storm. Perhaps he was conducting some sort of experiment, and then killed them and left somehow, maybe by having some sort of accomplice pick him up or something.

Make fun of my race = no more sure many others will follow too!!

There’s actually a super cool movie based off this mystery It goes for the more romanticised speculation (and goes for 2 keepers father than 3) and hints of the mermaid thing plus going mad It’s just called “The Lighthouse” and it’s really cool and vintage looking (in all black and white, almost square framing, etc) It also has Robert Patterson.... (Oh- and you should probably put on subtitles watching it because thems accents are THICC and *hard to understand*)

Wait a minute i had this story on my english comprehension test, its was from the light keepers point if view and about a massive wave about to hit the lighthouse that they tried to stop (unsuccessfully). Was it this light house? Am i mistaken ? Also i think one of them tried to murder the other.

The Gamekeeper is suspicious. I mean you just don’t see the light for 2 weeks and do nothing? Honestly wouldn’t it make sense that he could have went to the lighthouse and killed them, had 2 weeks of time to clean up and dispose of them somewhere else? No motive to speak of from my perspective, but I have questions about that

I know what happened on that island, it is obvious. That were taken by the Alien seaking. Who was working for the illuminati, to make a arme of dolphins to take over the world in 2020. All of this was set in place, by the hand of a time travling shakespear, in case People should start believing that he did not write his own books.

Why does Ryan say a wave was not likely when he mentioned that the Buoy was missing that was 110 ft high by non human interaction. And also no mention of suicide? Low morale, this is one of the most likely things it could be.

This case is solved. Three lighthouse residents came upon a person that was washed up onto shore from a storm. The person had a box full of gold with him. When the gold didnt get to its rightful destination. The owner came looking for the gold. He recognized the boat his friend was using and started asking questions. Noticed the three were lying and killed them all. (Look up "THE VANISHING")
