    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.

    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...

    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.

      @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.

  • Cyntrix
    Cyntrix 2 ай бұрын +4

    Kinda wish you would expand on it but this theory actually makes sense. Just think as to why or how Wilson was an undercover “janitor” and had the knowledge of the ink machines importance. And of all the workers why Audrey.

  • Alien Orca
    Alien Orca 2 ай бұрын +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.

      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?

      @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?

      @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!!

    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

      @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 ай бұрын +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

      @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.

    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

      Yes, this is an incredible weakspot of the Theory because Joey died cannonically in 1971, before Mr. Arch bought Bendy in 1972.
      And hell, wouldn't Nathan/Wilson Arch atleast notice and mention his Wife/Mother missing? Wouldn't he atleast do something about it?

    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.

    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

      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.

    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! 😊💙

      @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.

      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.

      @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.

      @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?

    If Joey lied about the lore, I don’t think it’s a stretch to assume that he lied about “making a Henry to torture” I remember seeing a headline in the games canon stating “animator found dead at his desk” maybe Joey came over to Henry’s place, somehow took his life and extracted his soul to put in the machine.

    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.
