Ah, it’s good to be back Sisters and Brothers! The hiatus is over and the Royal Order of the Holy Mackerel is once again holding meetings.
In this week’s meeting I investigated the 7th episode of the 2nd season, Society of the Blind Eye – a game changing episode which reveals the true history of one of Gravity Falls most cryptic residents, Old Man McGucket!
It turns out that Fiddleford Hadron McGucket secretly created a memory erasing ray that he used at first on himself, but eventually created a society founded on the principles of forcefully deleting memories to keep the populace happy. It worked well, and the secret society did it’s work for roughly 25ish years.
We also learn in the Society of the Blind Eye that Bud Gleeful was a member in exchange for deleting the memories of his son’s horrible temper tantrums. This left him blissful and ingnorant, but since his own wife wasn’t afforded that same nicety, she has been left a shell shocked and broken woman.
We also learn in Society of the Blind Eye that Fiddleford McGucket was not the Author of the Journals. They were the work of a “visiting researcher”, whom he aided in the creation of a powerful machine – theoretically the portal device that Grunkle Stan has been tending to!
There are many questions still unanswered, so be sure to leave your theories and suggestions in the comments below!
