Before we start this I just want to say, Odyssey, please please please please please don’t make the next Rydell episode another fake mystery. Also, spoiler warning for Further From the Truth! So, lets get down to the real enchilada of this post. I’ll be talking about the man of the chairs himself, the Chairman! For the past week or so, the Odyssey community (including myself) have been speculating that the Chairman is the mastermind behind Morrie Rydell, and today I’m going to be trying to prove this theory as much as I can. Lets start with stuff that points Morrie having a mastermind behind him in the first place. At the end of the episode The Secret of the Writers Ruse, Morrie is typing. It’s not clear to who, but two viable options are that he has a diary or journal, or that he’s typing to someone, and that someone may be the one behind him. Now lets talk about why the Chairman specifically would be the brains of this new arc. Lee from AIO Audio news said in a post that the Chairman’s plans with the Novacom saga was thwarted by Mr. Whittaker and kids, and that is who Morrie seems to be targeting. Now, lets talk about more evidence behind this theory. In Further From the Truth, Emily goes on an Imagination station adventure, because of a box that had Imagination Station technology. Marisa on AIO Audio news stated that it gave her vibes of the novabox and mind control, which are a big part in the Novacom saga. The phrase Ignoratio Elenchi, which if you don’t know is a phrase that Bob Hoose told me when I requested hints about Morrie. The interesting fact that ties this in with Novacom, is that it means Red Herring. That is an episode name in the Novacom saga, And plays a somewhat important role in the arc. Please tell me in the comments what you think about this theory, and if you have anymore evidence of it happening or not. Also, after I publish this post, I’ll be making a chat page on this blog, so after you finish this article, hop on over there to talk about anything and everything Odyssey!
Spoiler warning for Further From the Truth! Don’t read it you don’t want to be spoiled!!
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaat just happened. FFTT… What????? Garrett, if your reading this, you were partly right about the next one being a fake mystery. It wasn’t quite the same so, at least that makes it a bit better. When I started to listen to it, first I was disappointed that there wasn’t a parental warning. The episode was fine, and got even more hype when they said Matthew was being held by that guy in A Sacrificial Escape. I was worried that it was a fake mystery, and I was right. The mystery was to reunite Matthew and Emily. Before the, I guess it was an Imagination Station adventure ended, it was revealed that it was a fake mystery, and I was like, no no nonononononononononon no no please no. Then I got so confused when Emily said end adventure, and talked about how the mystery was strange. Also Lee, from AIO Audio News, if you’re reading this, then was this the mystery that was stated in the description of that album? The fake mystery? Any ways, I was so confused at this point. Also, wasn’t the scene where Morrie said he was good with numbers in the program? Maybe he put that there to lead Emily to connect him with the voice while the Chairman will be doing those evil deeds?!? OK, I’m going on speculations now. After the adventure ended, it showed the source of the adventure. When I heard about it, my first thoughts were on Novacom. And then came the scene with Morrie and Suzu! This did nothing to advance the plot! I feel this whole episode didn’t really advance the plot either! The Odyssey team could of made Mr. Whittaker change the audio and find it was Morrie to move the plot along! I’ve been waiting for this episode for a few months, and then it was put at the end of the album!!! And then it gave us this! If they put this episode as the first one, and then put a more substantial one at the end, I’d be a lot happier. But alas, this episode didn’t live up to my expectations. You can be sure of more speculations coming up. How did you like the episode? I got to go listen to it again and make more speculations
One more day until Further From the Truth is released! The Chairman is the boss behind Morrie. I’m calling it right now. Shout out to Marisa for making me believe this theory even more. She posted a comment on AIO Audio News, (which you should check out) saying that Ignoratio Elenchi also means red herring, which is a title of a Novacom episode, which ties in with the Chairman! Red Herring also played some part in the saga. Maybe something to do with AREM? I forgot. And also, I agree with Lee (The founder of AIO Audio News), about Garrett’s comment saying that he thinks the next few albums will be filled with fake mysteries. I really hope that doesn’t happen. I just hopes this episode lives up to my expectations, unlike Emily not living up to Morrie’s expectations. I feel like FFTT will be another episode with a parental warning. Anyways, tomorrow is the big day! You can be sure I’m reviewing it soon. What are you’re speculations? I’d love to hear them in the comments!
Signed, a hyped guy
In some of my recent posts I’ve shown some new information I’ve gotten from Bob Hoose and Nathan Hoobler. So you might be asking, “what’s this post for then?” Well, in this post I’ll put all the information in simple form, and then speculate! (On some).
- Morrie will appear in “Further From the Truth” Awesome! I’m glad that they’re not waiting another album until he appears again. The title says “Further From the Truth,” so I’m wondering, is Morrie going to start to lie, and lead the people of Odyssey to trust him?
- “The Morning Star” will be released in 2019. I’m guessing that this will be a Christmas episode.
- “Breaking News” will be released in 2020.
- The 900th episode will probably be recorded in January of the schedule goes as planned.
- “Further From the Truth” follows the episode “A Sacrificial Escape”
- Bob Hoose said this. if I were sitting down with a real live Morrie to, say, break a bit of bread, and I brought up the Latin phrase “Ignoratio Elenchi,” he would know my meaning. He might even smile, before diving back into his soup. Yikes. What speculations do you guys have about it?
- The last episode of album 68 will record in July.
- Four episodes have been recorded so far as of today (I think?).
- There will be an episode with the word “Wise” in it. I’m thinking it might have to do with Penny because (a) past episode(s) with her had that word in it.
What are your speculations? “Ignoratio Elenchi” is curious, don’t you think?
well, that’s all for now.
Peace out 💥💥💥
So, I emailed Bob Hoose and got some imformation, but the last part is the main point of interest. Here’s what he said. (Oh, and by the way, the words that are italicized are my words, not Bob’s).
I’d be happy to answer some of your pressing questions. The operating word being … some. 😉
First of all, yep, Morrie will be in Album 68 and will appear in the episode “Further from the Truth.”
Secondly, “The Morning Star” will release in 2019. “Breaking News” will be in 2020. And if our schedule continues as planned, we’ll likely record episode #900 in January.
“Can you give us any more information about Further From the Truth?” Uh, I can say that this episode doesn’t release until early next year. And of course, I don’t want to spoil anything, but it is fair to say that it follows the episode “A Sacrificial Escape.”
OK. Now here’s the interesting part.
How does it follow? How does it involve Morrie? Does it connect Morrie in any way to any thing? And for that matter, can I give you any more “hints” about Morrie?
Well, those questions are quite another kettle of fish, aren’t they? How about if I say this, if I were sitting down with a real live Morrie to, say, break a bit of bread, and I brought up the Latin phrase “Ignoratio Elenchi,” he would know my meaning. He might even smile, before diving back into his soup.
That’s as much as I’ll say.
OK, now here’s my thoughts.
Wow. OK, let’s try to understand that more. “Ignoratio Elenchi” means irrelevant conclusion within an argument. So what could this mean? What do y’all think? Tell me in the comments down below, and meanwhile, I’ll be trying to decipher it myself.
Peace out ✌
Hey y’all! I emailed Nathan Hoobler and asked him some questions. Here are the questions and answers.
Q: Does the team have any compilation albums that they’re making?
A: You’re probably aware of the “Camp on It” album. I think that’s the only compilation in the works for 2019, but I’m sure there will be albums after that.
Q: Do you know the name of album 68 yet?
A: No. The last of the Album 68 shows don’t record until July, so I doubt we’d be announcing a title much before that.
Q: Do you have the titles for the other three episodes in Album 68? (Not Breaking News, Further From the Truth, or The Morning Star
A: In fact, “The Morning Star” and “Breaking News” are both Club stories and will not be included in Album 68. We’ve moved recordings around a few times this year and we haven’t done it the way that we usually do. But I can say that we’ll see an episode with the word “Wise” in it for Album 68.
Q: Do any of the episodes in Album 68 have descriptions yet?
A: I haven’t written any up yet, so no. 😉 Four of them have been recorded, though.
OK. Let’s review and speculate.
1: Camp on It is probably the only compilation album in 2019. Nothing really t say here.
2: The last episodes of album 68 will record in July. OK.
3: “Breaking News” and “The Morning Star” are club episodes. Okay.
4: There will be a n episode with the word “Wise” in it. Maybe it’s an episode with Penny in it. That was her last name.
5: Four episodes have been recorded in album 68 so far. Alright.
Alrighty. What are some of your speculations or thoughts on album 68?
Peace out ✌
Hey Y’all! Three new episode titles in Album 68 have been revealed! The first one is titled “Breaking News.” The next one is “Further From the Truth.” Finally, “The Morning Star.” I’m excited about this album!!! But first, let’s get through Album 67.
