This is definitely a warning! MAJOR, MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD! DO NOT READ THIS UNTIL YOU HAVE SEEN THE RECENT GRAVITY FALLS EPISODE! And yes, it's about Gravity Falls.
For all of you who have been a cult follower of the show, Gravity Falls, then you might have or might have not seen tonight's mind-blowing episode!
If you haven't noticed, all of Season 2 of Disney XD's Gravity Falls has been dedicated to Dipper finding out the secrets of the journal and the other mysteries to come with it. So let me cut to the chase, what is that portal that Stan has been building?
Most of you probably thought it was some kind of doomsday device, and I'll be honest, I thought it was some kind of reality bending portal or something. But as of tonight's episode, Not as It Seems, the truth has finally come out.
As it turns out, there was a noble purpose to all of this. And as it turned out, the portal that Stan built was a sort-of rescue portal for a very important person..... the author or the 3 Journals. But let's ask the question that has been on the minds of not only the fans, but the characters of the show itself- WHO IS THE AUTHOR OF THE JOURNALS?
The author (as it turned out) was none other than........wait for it.........STAN'S TWIN BROTHER! Unbelievable. But it's believable now. So Stan's brother, the six-fingered genius behind "Experiment 210: The Shape-shifter" and the author of the 3 journals.
So I'm curious- why did the Pines Bros build the portal in the first place? Well, here's my theory. So Stan and his brother and Fiddleford McGucket (old man McGucket before going crazy) were three of the most brilliant minds in Gravity Falls. Stan's brother had already written the journals and had already uncovered all the madness of Gravity Falls (and created some madness of his own). So he probably thought to himself, "Why stop there? Why not uncover the madness of the universe?" And that's where the portal came into play.
After years of putting the portal together, Stan's brother decided it's time for a test run of this portal. But something went horribly wrong. The portal was on the verge of collapsing. Stan tried (probably) to save his brother from being lost in space forever, but failed. Before the portal collapsed, the plans for the portal were put in the 3 journals for safe-keeping, hoping they would never fall into the hands of a madman. And, somehow, the journals were lost all over Gravity Falls. Journal 3 was lost forever (until Dipper finds it). Journal 2 was kept by Stan. And, for some odd reason, Journal 2 fell into the devilish midget-like hands of L'il Gideon Gleeful, who thought would achieve ultimate power by gathering all 3, or, what he thought, 2. But this is what I think.
What an episode! Can't wait to see what other mysteries unfold! Don't forget to comment!
