    Love how Mat usually has to dig through mountains of content to get to the lore, but immediately rejects it when it's served to him on a silver platter

    If I’m being honest, this game kinda was a “sorry for previously being a game with a vague story line just so Matpat has theories to make about it, here’s a game with a clear story that even casual players can pick up” and I liked that.

      Yeah, there are quite a few things here that don't add up. For one, why are we immediately assuming Joey is lying about everything? If the ink version isn't actually him, it's possible it has its own personality or that Joey has changed from being a POS. Also, if the acquisition was only a year before the game, how did everything at Archgate go to hell so fast?! I think Matt is being a little quick to discard the entire game with this one...

    The thing about Joey and Allison's friendship also not making sense is the fact her arrival in the studio leads to Susie Campbell no longer being the voice actress for Alice Angel, leading to her eventual demise at Joey hands.

      @Eric Kamakeeaina your right, plus he was getting older and maybe he did like Allison but didn’t want to wreck her life so he started trying to create a life that embodied the best parts of him and maybe modeled this child after Allison which is why it’s a girl and not a straight up kid version of him. Also Matt doesn’t explain the ending of why give her the keys to the kingdom?

    • VeritabIlIti
      VeritabIlIti 8 days ago

      @The Overlord that's what I want to believe too. It's established that he isn't the actual Joey Drew, but a version of him that continued to exist. With the logic of these games, it's completely plausible that being a father in the ink world would change him. Also, none of this ever addresses how Audrey exists seemingly in the real world at the beginning of the game!!

  • Jumpyman_thegamer
    Jumpyman_thegamer 2 months ago +5078

    I'd like to point out that Audrey is part of a long line of experiments. There's a secret note that you can find in the Keepers Lair that says something along the lines of "Nearly all of them have called me 'Uncle'. But this one called me 'Dad'. For this, I am proud, as she is practically my daughter in every way". If y'all remember at the end of BATIM, a young girl's voice says "Tell me another one Uncle Joey". Now, knowing what we know in BATDR, we can work out that this young girl is one of the early prototypes for Audrey.

      Alice said she remembered how she physically became herself after her first in the dark puddles as a slug, so joey could still Do the same with Tessa.

    • Shachar Lem

      But then again, Alice was first born as a slug, and at attempt number 2 she became an angel.

  • Alien Orca
    Alien Orca 2 months ago +41

    I have a couple of problems with this theory. First off Tessa Arch can't be Audrey, because in the Nathan Arch audio log that we find in Wilsons lab he mentions both visiting the animation department and bring a hotdog home for Tessa. This means that Tessa would still be alive while Audrey was working at Arch Gate Films, so they couldn't be the same person.
    Second off I think Joey is actually telling the truth for once. I believe him because he told Audrey she was never really human and at the end of the game the Ink Demon tells Audrey that she is like him. This would make sense if Joey was telling the truth because it would mean that the Ink Demon and Audrey were both created solely from the ink. Also, I know this doesn't change the fact that Joey has still done horrible things in the past, but just because a person can't fully redeem themselves doesn't mean they can't realize what they did was wrong and at least try to set some of the things they did right.
    One more thing, if you wondering why Audrey didn't turn out like the Ink Demon, I am not really certain myself, but I have a theory of my own. My theory is that after Audrey was created Joey showed her love and kindness which were things that the Ink Demon was never exposed to. Because of this Audrey grew up being able to feel compassion and empathy while the Ink Demon ended up becoming the soulless monster we all know and fear.
    P.S. Sorry for any grammar or punctuation errors.

    • VeritabIlIti
      VeritabIlIti 8 days ago +2

      I completely agree! The immediate dismissal of the presented lore also dismisses an interesting character development that would completely ruin all of the emotional payoff of the story, and no self-respecting writer would do that. There's also the question of how Audrey existed in the real world at the beginning and clearly has some recollection of being real. Why would she suddenly have implanted memories? What would that do for anyone?

  • EZRATO
    EZRATO 2 months ago +185

    This really checks out when you consider that Wilson created the house maid in the image of his mother (the maid reveals this in the last chapter) - this makes a lot of sense for him to do if his mother had been killed by Joey and he was missing her.

    • The Overlord
      The Overlord 8 days ago

      The timeline doesn’t check out though. Wilson’s mother was still alive after the Nathan Arch bought Joey Drew Studios, something that explicitly happened *after* Joey died. This entire video is objectively incorrect.

      @Nutty Nuts Nutstache Yeah, she died, and now Wilson misses her because she's dead. The cause of death has no relation to why Wilson misses her, it's purely just an explanation as to why she died in the first place.

  • Lxttlecomfey
    Lxttlecomfey 2 months ago +96

    Few little observations
    1) So Henry from the first game is meant to be an inky recreation of Henry, presumably without a soul. If that’s the case, how come he can touch the ink? Allison in the first game even said “we’re not like you Henry” and proceeds to describe how her and Tom couldn’t cross the ink because they didn’t have a soul and were made purely of ink, but Henry could since he, presumably, did have a soul. If he was just an inky recreation of Henry, he would be soulless, and therefore couldn’t touch the ink. Perhaps Joey is lying about that Henry being a recreation? (Or a continuity error)
    2) While Matpat says that Joey is also torturing Allison, I don’t think he is, at least not the real one. Again, pointing out that scene from chapter 5 where Allison said they couldn’t cross the ink river because they weren’t like Henry. That would imply that both Allison and Tom are soulless, so there isn’t any way that Allison in the ink world is the real Allison

      But the Boris and the Butcher Gang Members we meet all melt. Now, why would they do that?
      Well, they most likely didn't wish to have multiple ragdoll Corpses to be rendered for the Game.

      @Lxttlecomfey I mean, ink creates *with* a soul can't touch it either, or atleast some. Alice in Chapter 3 in the first game mentions that IIRC. On that note, I think that Henry and Audrey are just special in that sense, compared to basically almost all other ink creatures.

    • Lxttlecomfey
      Lxttlecomfey 2 months ago +4

      @Holy Roman kinda hard to say- after all, while the story has established a clear difference between ink creatures with and without a soul, they’ve never really explicitly showed us ink creatures without a soul being able to touch ink. After all, the main trait of soulless ink creatures is that they can’t touch the ink,,,, it’d be a little weird to just have ONE soulless ink creature who can touch it

  • Katy Stang
    Katy Stang 2 months ago +1

    I think you got it wrong.. if you read the book “bendy: the lost ones” you can learn that THOMAS CONNOR was working on the ink machine and also claims that he built it. That means Joey probably helped building it or he built it. Idk but if you read that book, you’ll understand some stuff.

  • Kompy 36

    Just a little small detail I thought I would mention, You say Audrey has a soul like all the other ink characters but she is different at one aspect from all of them.If I recall correctly they all have pupils only her eyes are blank, and you know what they say about eyes being windows to a persons soul. What if there is no window because there is no soul?

  • CelticGuardian1020
    CelticGuardian1020 Month ago +1

    Another thing this theory blatantly ignores is that the Ink Demon calls Audrey the "Daughter of Drew" and he didn't here Joey's speech earlier in the game or he would've been hunting Audrey. He also has no motive to lie about this. So Audrey being Joey's daughter has to sources now. Also claiming that her soul must have been Wilson's mother is completely outlandish because for one thing I highly doubt he could get her to visit a friend of her husband's workplace and secondly it falls into fan theory "this offscreen character is the same gender as this character so they must be the same" energy.

    The theory of there being a part of a soul in Audrey would make sense with the mirror Easter egg. At the beginning of the game there's a mirror you can interact with in Audrey's office but interact with it too much and there's a ghost face jumpscare. It's very random but def fits with the soul theory!!

    • Mike Dubo
      Mike Dubo 2 months ago +1

      I would be hard pressed to use that Easter Egg for evidence, as Audrey doesn't seem to have any reaction for that jumpscare, like she's not aware of it, or nots actually happening. It may just be a fun quirk the devs put in.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but based on Nathan Arch's audio logs, Joey was dead before Arch purchased the Bendy and Co IP. I believe as Joey didn't have an heir to his estate, Arch would have had to have purchased the rights from Gent. Unless I'm missing something

      @Electric Yeah, this theory was filled with holes that rendered it null. Audrey isn't Joey Drew's first attempt at a daughter, and I don't remember any confirmation that Tessa was dead when Bendy 1 takes places (the little girl at the end of that game who called Joey "uncle Joey" was one of his previous attempts). Also, Mat's previous theory on Bendy 1 literally notes that, as of when that game was happening, Allison Pendle was doing well with her husband (shown by the same letter that actually gets referenced in this theory, lol), so she couldn't have been killed to turn into Alice angel.

    I honestly assumed that Audrey was Henry's biological daughter and Joey used her in the experiment. Joey tricks Henry into the endless cycle of the machine and he takes his place in life. At the end of the first game we hear a young girl refer to him as "uncle Joey"

    But Nathan Arch didn’t “pick the company’s bones dry” (which seems like a harsh way to frame him trying to preserve his friend’s legacy) until *after* Joey had died.

    • Soldier [TF2]
      Soldier [TF2] 2 months ago +11

      @Ready Pickles No, Nathan came up with the Idea *after* Joey died, he basically bought the Rights of the Cartoon since Joey was allready dead.
      And also don't forgot about the fact that Nathan bought Bendy in 1972, which was after Joey's Death in 1971. Honestly... how did he forget about that?

  • Steven Schramm
    Steven Schramm Month ago +1

    Okay, the problem with this theory is that Tessa didn't die and get thrown into the machine since there is an audio log before the last boss fight where Nathan Arch is talking about the new animation team and him going out to pick up a hot dog which Tessa told him to watch his diet so how could she have died?

    Yes finally! Someone is mentioning this! The story seemed alittle too suspicous for a old Bendy fan like me. Joey is a huge liar and I think he is lying about everything even being Audreys daughter because he wants to make himself look nice to everyone, like he saw himself, but no one saw him as! Also me and my friends have thought think he lied to Audrey about her being his daughter because he wants to get her on his side, like him and may still have a grudge aganist Henry even in hus Inky form. He is a well known liar to his employees/ to the fans who read the books and nothing he says should be trusts including everything he says about the studio and his backstory. Me and my friends have been talking about this nonstop since it came out and there so many points! I cant wait to see whats next in this series!
    Thankyou Matpat! 😊💙

      MrReyes 500 2 months ago +33

      @joshua kim That sounds accurate, tbh. The Ink Joey in the game isn't technically lying, because the Ink version of Joey genuinely believes what he's saying. There's also the silver lining that this means that the fake Joey DOES genuinely love Audrey as a daughter, unlike the real Joey who probably just used her as an experiment. Meaning that an incomplete fake has more sincerity and emotions than the supposed real deal.

    I would just like to say that this theory couldn't be right because joey made audrey before he died but nathon arch bought the rights to the bendy characters after joey dies, so joey would have no reason to use tessa to make audry. Other than that i liked the theory.

    • Rogelio A. Loya

    • Eric Kamakeeaina
      Eric Kamakeeaina 2 months ago +3

      Its debunked because Nathan mentions his animation studio in the hotdog audiotape. Meaning that this took place after Nathan became owner of the Bendy IP. So Joey couldn't have taken Tessa because she was still alive after he passed.

    • rainbowolfe
      rainbowolfe 2 months ago +1

      @R1chards0n In that scene, Wilson's expressing how he doubted the stories about the studio, but he now believes them. I'm paraphrasing, but he goes on to say "Despite how much that sounds like nonsense, here we are." and pulls out the proof that convinced him in the first place: a little living bendy trapped in a glass.

    • Rogelio A. Loya
      Rogelio A. Loya 2 months ago +5

      @liliespetals19 but the buy out happens before the tape where Nathan mentions Tessa, so if the theory was correct that means that he was giving a hot dog to his dead wife who would complain about him not following his diet after she died?
