Or, more to the point, the assumed unchangeability of the timeline. Inside it, everything is mutually dependent. But I do believe that he began as the husband to Agnes. Elsewhere in 1953, Egon arrest Ulrich, covered in blood, for murdering Helge… and on suspicion of murdering the two boys. Mads had been walking Regina home through the woods because of her fear of it due to Ulrich and Katharina’s tying her to a tree, and left as a joke. And its ability to mess with you is better than Lost. In Episode 4 you said Jonas got the map from Erik’s stash but wasn’t it from his father Michael’s belongings? She was praying that the baby would fail and that she wasn’t even sure who the father was. All Meanwhile, Katharina makes Ulrich admit to his affair with Hannah. I try the again. But what are your thoughts on the show? Something I quite don’t understand is why Yasin and Erik are abducted. The episode penultimately ends with Mikkel escaping the hospital and walking through the cave where his father is simultaneously searching for him. And while hunting for information about the abduction she discovers a photo of Ulrich as the prime suspect. For example, Helge. You are welcome Ankur. But it did keep Helge from meeting with Egon for his follow-up interview so there is that. Yeah I guess you´re right but the more I think about it I go crazy jaja but anyways! Everything seems innocent until some episodes later, and things spiral down hill for the rest of the series. I already watched three times season one. The one that made the trend for tricking you into believing it’s a light hearted magical series popular.

So now we know that Erik is dead. The dark series follows Yuuji Itadori, who, after swallowing a cursed rotting finger, becomes enveloped into a world of fiendish Curses and the Jujutsu Sorcerers who combat them. I’m going insane apparently. I heard “BigBlockofNick””s theory as to why Mikkel committed suicide; what is everyone else’s theory as to why he resorted to suicide?

She tells Ulrich that his father, Tronte, had been having an affair with Claudia Tiedemann. Ulrich was saying that he had murdered Helge, and therefore the two dead boys shouldn’t be dead. Or future Stranger Jonas? As the episode ends, we see Erik in a room, and loud music playing. But because Ulrich had also lost a brother, Mads, in his youth, his entire family is fairly overwhelmed by the recent missing child. Oh, and the final shot? I like the theory that the suicide was an attempt to stop the time loop. It magnifies the wrongs and errors of our ways. And what of Claudia? The next day a group of kids meet near the cave, and when a loud sound exits the cage the group runs and Mikkel ends up going missing. And Ariadne is standing there, a pawn, wondering how it all slipped her grasp. Noah believed he was working towards a greater purpose: to elevate humanity by controlling time travel, which would make it possible to re-arrange events and escape the pre-determined cycle of suffering. The eternal cycle can be seen as the resurrection cycle (or samsara in buddhism) where all our souls are trapped in the material world. We also meet The Stranger, a mysterious hooded guy who checks into Regina Tiedemann’s hotel. Not only that? I’ve been sitting here and staring at this blank post for a while now.

The books highlight how two of the series creators, Hidetaka Miyazaki and Takeshi Kajii, held onto the philosophy that a vague world filled with myths and legends would be more engrossing to fans. I… His parents had been cold to him up until this point. Because, ultimately, Helge believes that he has a higher purpose to work for. Totally drops her cold. It was the end. Episode 5 Revelations: The most important revelation is that Mikkel is Michael, and that he was stranded back in 1986 and that the time traveling works in periods of 33 years. The series shows different ways to deal with this: to go back to the painful/crucial moments over and over again, to live with a lie because it is less painful than the truth, to make peace with how things were laid out in your life and to accept that the pain you had to go through made you what you are today.

Noah sent me” a hooded man tells Yasin, and that is the end of the episode. It definitely reminds me of Lost, which is my favorite show of all time. Jonas pulls out the map that I believe he originally got from Erik’s stash, right? I’ve talked to much…, Hi there, I love this show! Well, Noah moves quickly through time and has from the beginning. I am so glad I did. So how does one deconstruct a show as dense as Dark in one single post? And younger Helge doesn’t listen to a word of it and decides to help Noah with the next victim, which is Jonas. Press J to jump to the feed. Then we can start talking to the bigger canvass of the show and the directions it might be going in the future as well as the underlying details many of us may have missed upon first gander. I found the show by Netflix suggestion. Though Regina tells Ulrich it was actually Hannah that accused Ulrich. And probably Noah and Helge. But some of the big mind jobs in Ep1 are definitely the letter from Michael that his mother Ines opens, and the realization that boys are being abducted for some sort of experimentation. Either way. Ah, patience! Pretty much anyone that wandered into it got lost and died. Episode 3 Revelations: Our shift from 2019 out to 1986 gives us our first clue that these issues in the town of Winden have been going on for years and years. I’ll be including the family tree at the bottom, when discussing the families and the theories. The creation of the wormhole began towards the end, but it wasn’t the end. After running to the police department and freaking out about his missing son, Mikkel, but the boys don’t match his son’s description. I listed all of the key players of each of the families, and I also linked the players together. I might like Dark better? Dark Episode 9 – Nine kicks off with a bang with Noah chatting with Greta. And they tell him, “welcome to the future”, and then a woman knocks him out with the but of her gun. I will be posting the image lower in this post, but don’t want it too close to those who haven’t seen the show yet as it is riddled with spoilers. And Tannhaus answers no. I mean, look at what the Priest did for Helge after all! Right? Cut to Mikkel, waking in a cave, who runs home and tries to go in. Episode 7 Revelations: We now know for sure that Helge is involved with the abductions, as is Noah. How is it that he never ages? Have to see seasons come out more before decide. Mikkel is sitting and talking with Ines… and Jonas is just about to go and talk to Mikkel. His face is bloodied, so we can assume that this is Helge himself… but only because of what we learn later. Both are like each other. They even walk through the exact same spot, only separated by 33 years, and a doorway further down the cave. b : airtight – hermetic seal “It’s like the question of the chicken and the egg. He heads on in to town to find Tannhaus – and he asks him if he is the same man that wrote this book. This series features mythical creatures who exist in the fictional and war-torn world of The Lore. But when Ulrich talks to Regina, he tells her that he always knew that she was the one that accused him of raping his girlfriend (and wife to be) of rape. And Ulrich beats him to within an inch of his life. Helge then t-bones himself (which would be an interesting crash report to write up) but the younger Helge survives, and the elder dies. Watch the show with a pen and paper and a sharp eye. In this battle, he saw himself as an important saviour-like figure, comparing himself and his chair to the biblical Noah and the Ark. Not only I loved this show, this also encouraged me to look for other non-English stuff such as The invisible guest ( this was awesome too) etc. Hannah spies Ulrich and Katharina having sex and tells her father that Ulrich raped Katharina. for series like this it’s hard to reach a conclusion by only 1 season. And that would mean that there’d be no Jonas,… and that there would be no Stranger either. We can no longer say which of the two came first. My comment did not post? Anyway, Jonas travels through the wormhole from 1986 to 2052. The first and most obvious one is that he actually isn’t dead. But jumping years later, Hannah uses the bag that Aleksander had used as a threat to get Aleksander to ruin Ulrich. this comment does nothing to further the discussion but I FINALLY FINISHED DARK! Glad it was helpful. That Winden is locked in a repeating cycle of actions that they are struggling to break free from.

She speaks of having attempted to build a new world from scratch and realizes that she’s failed miserably. Dark Episode 6 – This episode dives deep into the tangled web of Mad’s disappearance and the causes for it. Then Tannhaus finds the Stranger’s cell phone.. Then why kidnap them, take them to other time, in order to test some machine that didn’t work? In Season 1, one of the biggest revelations once time travel is introduced is that teenager Jonas (Louis Hofmann) realizes that the young boy Mikkel (Daan Lennard Liebrenz) who disappears from Winden in 2019, has actually gone back in time to 1986 where he then met and eventually married Jonas’ mother. Then, after Jonas ignited the machine in the caves, we see young Helge waking in the cellar after getting pummeled by Ulrich. You can also subscribe without commenting. dunh dunh DUNH!

The final episodes revealed how the devastating cycle of events, which unfolded over three total seasons, were a tangle of alternate worlds and wormholes and paradoxes.
