Gravity Falls returns from haitus next Monday (Feb 16th) with Northwest Mansion Mystery.

Oddly the mansion doesn't seem to be the same from when the Pines' dropped Pacifica off at the end of the golf episode, though I wouldn't put it past them to have two houses within close quarters (the show does like its flippantly decadent rich people).

Unexpected! Makes sense though; they're trying to make her more than "Mabel's rival" so it's good idea to have significant interaction with other characters.

Don't forget the fucking axe through the skull!

I kind of thought it was weird that some episodes of Gumball were still Y7, but when I found out Gravity Falls was all Y7 I was in disbelief. I think Disney Channel/XD probably just has some arbitrary "everything is below TV-PG" rule that's stayed around even as they've gotten more lenient on the actual content they'll allow.

I think it's the whole "start as enemies" thing. Normally it's cliched but when you aren't expecting it to turn romantic I guess it can actually work pretty well. They didn't beat us over the head with it either, which is refreshing.

Now that Robbie and Pacifica have turned more friendly I wonder if we'll see a new side to Gideon or if he'll stay a complete asshole.

Really good as far a big mid-season episodes. Answer just as many questions as you ask.

As I'd expected, "Stan" is a liar, but not totally evil. But WOW, is a liar.

Now I wonder if Stan is the author's real name and our guy's his brother, or if he's some entirely unrelated dude. Either one begs the question of why the rest of their family would never mention him being mistaken for dead.

n.

Read the newspaper headline closely: It says "Stan Pines Dead". The Stan we know is named Stanford, but his license plate, which was this key for the credit cryptogram this episode, is STNLYMBL (Stanley Mobile).

Stanley is the Author, who faked his death (or had it faked after he disappeared). Stanford is the Stan Pines we've known, and that is his real name. Mabel was right, that was part WAS a misunderstanding!

Just marathoned the show a whim.

It was great.

I originally wanted to hold off until it was all over so I wouldn't have to wait between episodes.

That was 3 years ago. Then I heard about the next episode premiering in the far-off month of June and I was like, welp, that's it, just gonna watch my backlog.

Now that I'm on the wait train with the rest of you, I would like to know how to crack the codes hidden in the show. Join in the decoder ring fun. How would I go about doing that?

This site should have just about everything you need including the answers if you're feeling lazy, but where's the fun in that. Not every secret message uses the same cipher, so either trial and error it or if you want to go all out, solve and/or re-reverse other messages to figure out what you need. Some of the Season 2 codes are especially fun to decipher as they also require a bit of a keen eye as you watch the episodes.

The show's wikia has a pretty good page on that. It's not just listing the solutions, rather it explains the kinds of codes used (Atbash, substitution, etc.) and the how to decode them.

It's his agonizing muffled screams and writing in abominable agony that really make the scene.

Also Soos being Kenshiro is the most awesome thing ever.

It actually came off even worse to me on first viewing: I though he was choking on the eyeball.

But Bill wouldn't do that; he's probably even keeping Preston from dying of thirst/hunger. Full resurrection of the dead is probably one of the few things he can't do, and you can't torture dead people. Bill's basically AM at this point, except he's really enjoying himself.

>>239936
I just assumed there were 20 episodes like last season. I almost wish I hadn't seen this, because expecting things to end an episode early would have really thrown me off.
Man this episode was epic. Bill is truly terrifying despite being all fun and games. Still wondering though, what prevented him from taking physical form before? Did he need the rift for that? It was creepy that even his hat seems to be a part of his body, bones and all.

Woooow. Whoever noticed that, they are really obsessed with the show.

Bill despite appearing in the physical universe was not ever actually in it, he was using visions, possessions and image projections to broadcast himself into our dimension.

Existing in a realm with no physical matter he couldn't take physical form, once in a physical realm by mere virtue of existing he took form.

It's strange, as he could still influence the physical world, like removing all the teeth of a deer, remember?
Maybe it's just that he could not permanently influence this world without the rift - not unless he struck a deal with someone.

Btw, the new intro is awesome... :D Especially how the music is playing backwards.

I feel like an idiot for taking so long to get why Bill put Mabel in that sphere: it's probably the "time bubble" he, as Blendin, said she could stay in. A deal's a deal, after all.

I wonder if it'll be real enough to Mabel that she has to be convinced to leave, or if Bill made it as phony as possible.

Because, while he has immense control over the dream world he's from, he could could only affect the physical world through people's dreams.

The whole point of teaching Ford how to make the portal was because it would make the two dimensions start merging (or destabilize the boundary enough for Bill to make them merge). Stan reactivating the portal tore open the rift which Ford contained in the bubble. The wider the rift gets, the more the dream dimension bleeds into the physical, giving Bill more power over it. He seems to only have control over Gravity Falls now, but he'll eventually control the rest of Earth--if it doesn't destroy the whole universe first.

>Existing in a realm with no physical matter he couldn't take physical form, once in a physical realm by mere virtue of existing he took form.
Hence why his appearance changed from purely two-dimensional to a triangular plate that has depth, and thus volume.

>>239975
>It's strange, as he could still influence the physical world, like removing all the teeth of a deer, remember?
That was probably just an illusion (or just a mistake because it was written before the rules for this were laid out). At the very least, his influence was very limited.

Guess they wanted to keep it a secret until Weirdmaggedon started.

The last one is an hour long, so it'll probably have a double page-unless it was just easier to design as a 7x3 with one spot missing.

Adult Swim shows have huge hiatuses between seasons because they're not being produced during contract negotiations.

Gravity Falls episodes are months apart because they're trying to get better mileage in terms of ratings (both from itself and boosting other shows).

Rest of this airs next year Overall I guess its okay? It feels like this is a compressed version of what they wanted for their third season. Half the plot lines from the first part of the season just vanished (Pacifica redeeming the family name, Wendy getting more depth) and now with the climax just around the corner.

I keep thinking how about how Kill La Kill felt like it was a two season planned arc compressed into one with its pacing. And This feels very similar like they had planned for three and then Disney cut them back to two later in production.

Yea they worked closer with The crew in season two production, but I still feel something is off with things, like its still part of two different seasons. Heck if it was the same channel executives as before they likely wouldn't allow the Brothers Chaps to make a bunch of silly shorts.

Also while the sun sets on this one there are a some cartoons they are working on that I think will be good.

By all indications, the delays came because they wanted to work on the episodes more. Production only even wrapped up a few weeks ago.

Likewise, while the show was original planned as three seasons, cutting back to two was almost certainly because they didn't want to stretch the main plot out further. After the Author's appearance, the show didn't have much going intrigue-wise; can you imagine if there was a whole season like that?

That's why I feel Ford should have come in later. His entrance was quite abrupt as all the pieces were being put together.

I know some say "mysteries were set pieces not all were meant to be explored." I get that but it just feels spotty not as solid as Twin Peaks or its Simulacrum.
