Gabriel Gray

Claire Bennet Battles Unknown Figure

Type: Painting
First Appearance: Going and Going
Description: Claire Bennet is small figure at the centre of the frame, and she's falling — apparently, from a great height, her legs kicked up in the air, her arm reaching for the sky, the flag of her hair streaming. She's not alone. Falling with her is silhouette, wreathed in shadow. It reminds her, momentarily, of the inky mass that Gabriel had emerged from moments ago, except that something about the contours of the shape resonates as smoky, ashy, lifting off the dense centre of a person in stream tendrils that flutter from velocity but likewise seem to reach down for the figure of Claire as they fall together, like two angels in a fight, pitching for the earth.

  • This could be one of three people… Vincent, Samson or… by some miracle Kazimir.

Woman in Desert

Type: Painting
First Appearance: Leaving the Twilight
Description: The bottom half of the painting is desert landscape, and the upper half is roiling storm. Connecting the two are blue zithers of lightning. A vanishing point in the heart of the landscape shows a building in the far distance, and it's hard to make out much detail save that it is grey, squat, foreboding. A woman's face hovers over it. She is older, gaunt, and her eyes are white, and so is her hair. One hand, presumably hers, hovers over the distant building protectively, and lightning from the sky veins her pointed fingers.

Theories for Woman in Desert

  • IDK what the building is (although, maaaaaybe Die, Burn, Explode), but I assume the woman is Alice Shaw. The power makes sense, too, because if I remember, she was a weather manipulator.

Kaylee Thatcher

Strangers in the Park

Type: Dream
First Appearance: Playdate
Description: Kaylee dreams of taking her children on a playdate to the park and encounters two strangers who reassure her about her father.

Theories for Strangers in the Park

  • The two vague figures remind me of Eileen and Gabriel from Bright Timeline; but, the kids from Wasteland.
  • Why do I think this is Eileen?
    • The cup has EG on it… yeah it could have been Earl Grey, but it could have also been for Eileen Gray.
    • The description of her fits the Bright Eileen profile picture.
    • She seems to have thoughts and emotions… stuff Kaylee is able to pick up on.
  • Why do I think the man is Gabriel?
    • This is only a shadow of the man. He has an empty void (simple nothingness) where his mind should be, meaning he might be a figment of the Eileen entity.
    • It is late and I am blanking on the rest.
    • Tall, dark stranger that something about him prickles at the back of her neck? Very Gabriel-like. This alone doesn't stand, since there are a lot of men that fit that descriptor… but it fits with everything else.
    • "I never gave fathers a lot of credit myself," he says, "until I became one." <— Considering Gabriel's relationship with his father, this makes sense. How would you understand why your father did what he did, unless he became a father himself. Only then do you really understand.
    • On the same note, his answer to Kaylee's question fits too… I'm sure Gabriel worries about turning into his father… seems like a delicate line he walks.
  • The kids are clearly Astor and Benji.
  • I can't help but think there is a part that was once Eileen tucked into Kaylee's mind. They did battle it out for Kaylee's son and she faded away, doesn't mean that, like the castle and birds on the island, Kaylee might have a psychic impression tucked into her head.
    • What are the implications of something like that? Hmmmm.
    • I hope it's not picking away at the Kaylee brain! Planning to replace it. MY BRAIN! YOU CAN'T HAVE IT, EILEEN! (This is better for tinfoil than there really.)
  • "Sometimes you have to destroy things in order to save them."
    • Like the Vanguard wanted to do?!?
    • Like her father did by pushing the country into the state it is in? All for the sake of his kids? What was his true plans? Is he a good guy working with what he has? Or is he the ultimate villain and we have not seen everything yet?
    • I find this message interesting…
  • “You’re nothing like him.” Edward, she means. “You’re here with your children, and there’s a void in you where your best memories of him ought to be. I hear it when you talk.”
    • DOUBLE TAKE!! WHAT?!?! That is not creepy. From that little bit of conversation? I think not!
  • Birdsong, muted by the glass pane, sounds like it must be coming from very far away even though she sees sparrows flitting between the bare, skinny branches of the tree outside the window.
    • IDK why… this stuck out for me…. That is one hell of a thick piece of glass.

Multiple Puzzle Pieces

Type: Precognitive Vision
Source: Joseph <3
First Appearance: Being A Little Less Obstinate
Description: During a discussion about the current situation, Joseph offers up his ability in the search for answers.

Theories for Multiple Puzzle Pieces

  • A blonde woman that Kaylee does not recognize replaces a dying Luther. This very well could be Kara. Like she wrote herself in to warn her and give her advice. IDK. People like Richard and Odessa have really seen Kara, but not Kaylee. So it makes sense that the woman would be unfamiliar to her. So what happens if Kaylee shows this vision to Richard or Odessa?
  • A black snake with gold eyes?!?! Is Kaylee going to turn on everyone… or is the snake in her going to take over? Is the snake this entity, now in control of Adam? The way they both move, makes me feel the golden eyed snake is in control.
  • The Apple… The knowledge that gives Corona power… The truth? Adam ate of the apple? Hmmmmm…
  • "You have to go backwards, If you want to move forward." - What does this mean? Looking at the past? Going to the past? IS this how to defeat Adam? Or the Entity? Is this how Kaylee can get rid of the curse on her?"
  • Pretty sure now that little dead bird with a flicker of life is Eileen in Sibyl's head.

The Ray Siblings

A Dream Is A Wish Your Heart Makes

Type: Dream
First Appearance: A Dream Is A Wish Your Heart Makes
Description: The Ray family experience a night of restless sleep and unsettling images.

Theories For A Dream Is A Wish Your Heart Makes




  • The door is always locked.
    • The dark door is the one that she keeps shut to herself? She could know everything, if she was only willing to look. But she hides behind the door. Ignores it and pretends it isn't there. trying to be a good person.
  • When she watches, hidden in curtains and up on catwalks, she sees cloaked figures passing in and out. Never her. Her, the one in charge.
    • Possibly a representation of how Kaylee's ability is… She knows people are there, but she doesn't know them. Only certain people do she know by the hum of their mental voice.
  • A snake coils around her leg, the only comforting embrace she's offered.
    • Even with people around her, she is alone. Only her ability to keep her company.
  • When she's on the stage, the audiences weep for her, they clap for her. Once, it felt like praise, but now when she looks past the lights… she sees fear. No one wants to upset her. No one wants her to act out. No one wants her to know everything.
    • People want her to help them, want her to perform for them; but, in truth they keep her at a distance. Won't let her near, fearing what she could be.
    • Just a tool for the pleasure of others, but never for herself. They give her just enough praise and attention to keep her from turning on them.
