Long have we wondered about the deeds of Morrie Rydell. Long have we waited to know his evil plans. What if I told you he doesn’t have any. What if I told you he was good… Please check out https://aioaudionews.com/2020/07/30/extra-what-if-morrie-was-right/ to hear Lee talk about this bombshell. It is a huge bombshell. We thought we knew everything about Morrie. We thought we got him all figured out, but we don’t. Everything we thought the past 4 years might be false. That’s what this post is about. This post is unraveling everything about Morrie in a new light. This subject is very interesting, so bear with me through my discussion about the illusive character known as Morrie…
Morrie is the good guy. We are the bad guys
Since 2016, fans have speculating on this new kid called Morrie Rydell. Our instincts screamed “Bad Guy” from the moment he came on the show. Why? His villain monologue from the Writers Ruse for instance. “I have to admit. They were good. It was a risk to show them a page of my playbook like that, but it was worth it to see if they could keep up with me. And, of course, they couldn’t. No one could. I shouldn’t of expected that anyone would be that good. Not in this town.” By that, isn’t it obvious that he’s the bad guy? On the official podcast, Phil stated that the plan for Morrie was changed. That could of happened after the Writers Ruse. I we go off of that basis, there is still a chance for him to be the good guy. Like Morrie said, he’s trying to bring out the good in people. Isn’t that good? Why would a bad guy do that? In the title I said we are the bad guys. Why? For judging Morrie. Emily judged him as well. We came to the conclusion that he was bad, and so did Emily. We came to that conclusion, maybe because the way he talks, or somethings he did, but what are his real intentions?
Morrie and Suzu aren’t perfect
By no means am I stating they are perfect. Suzu steals things, and Morrie hacked into a computer to help her! The escape room wasn’t the best idea, to make them think they were going to die! Whit knew about this all along, and he played along with it. He allowed the escape room to happen without telling Emily his concerns prior. Like Whit said in part 3, “I should of stepped in sooner”. But isn’t what Morrie and Suzu did good? Emily learned valuable lessons from the incidents. What I’m trying to say is that Morrie and Suzu aren’t perfect. They still need to be punished.
What is the proper punishment?
Like I just stated, they need to be punished, but what is the proper punishment? Jail? Or is it something more minor? Take the escape room for instance. Whit says, “You’ve trespassed, tamped with property, held people captive, and broken a few other laws I’m sure.” Does this mean jail? Ohio state law says the punishment for a felony is jail. But Whit knew about it the whole time! Like I said, he played along with it. So is jail the punishment? Non the less, they still need to be punished in some way.
What should Emily’s response be to this?
After all the events that have happened, Emily has been left kind of messed up. Should she be thanking Morrie and Suzu or not? On one hand, Morrie did hold Emily captive, but on the other hand, he did give Emily valuable lessons from it. He did bring out the good in people. In my opinion, Emily should forgive them, but they should know that some of the things they did were wrong.
What do you guys think about this? Please tell me if there is anything I missed, or any holes in what I said. I want more discussion on this subject, so if you could, reblog or share this post, and Lee’s. Please tell me your thoughts in the comments. I’ll leave you guys with this. You know the picture for album 69? It depicts Morrie taking off his “good” mask if you will, and showing his evil side. What if I told you this. Morrie is putting on the good mask. We have all misjudged Morrie Rydell. We all thought he was bad, but he wasn’t all along.
Today, I’ll be discussing what we know so far about Album 69, Best Kept Secrets. Credit to AIOWiki for the information.

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
Welcome back! I hope y’all enjoy. “A Sacrificial Escape” is probably the episode on the cover of album 67 (see the previous post) and if that is true, then it’s probably a Rydell episode because Suzu is on the cover of the album. The name says a sacrificial escape witch means that it may not be just a normal escape, but a sacrificial one. That may mean that the people who are trying to help the people trapped inside are losing something important or hurting somebody else. Sadly, we have to wait for the episode to be released, but I’m looking forward to listening this episode!
