ok so this is going to be a wip theory but
so how everything as of late seems to be pointing to eridan
theyre all looking an awful lot like the angels from the land of wrath and angels
now as we all know, eridan has betrayed his team once before, destorying the matriorb and dooming his species, then turning his back on everyone when he and sollux fought and he killed feferi and kanaya.
what if eridan is working with lord english? and gamzee isn’t the only one turning his back on everyone.
and if eridan is turning his back on everyone, he could be stealing information from vriska even, allowing le to know all about their plans. (thats only if all the eridans aren’t under her mind control powers)
but its still odd that in this panel
eridan is missing both his horns, and the stripes on his scarf, yet everyone else seems to be perfectly intact with all their details.
now i find that quite odd, considering hussie has been known to go back and fix errors like these before and even change things.
now, is it just me or is this panel different from what it originally was? i believe it was the tricksters running around the zilly santas with gamzee in the background, theyre in a pile of them.
and if no one has pointed this out, the background of the trickster mspa design matches eridans scarf design, deeming the tricksters seem to have ‘stolen’ it.
and that could be the reasoning behind it being missing in that panel??
i mean, the tricksters were a result of the cherubs and their work. honestly, it might just be a hint, but it’s something. i’ll expand on this theory as i collect more information, but this is all i have so far.
edit: i brought this up with a friend of mine, and she has helped me simply fuel the theory more.
[8:43:01 AM] Arisu Maryam: eridan has shown desire to go to the enemy team if it so befits him. Because first and foremost he is a coward. He was not able to tell fef his feelings and kept her in his quadrants because he feared losing her. He feared death, and thus decided to join Jack Noir.
It wouldn’t be a far stretch to say dead eridan would be afraid of double death.
The one thing i’m not sure about is caliborn’s willingness to cooperate. However, if eridan approached when caliborn was still juvenile (like the time we’re seeing him right now he’s a little shit he’s still a child) with offers of help it’d be one more hand to help caliborn.
(eridan would probably be cursed with immortality in LE’s service)
[8:46:11 AM] actual moirail karkat vantas ●﹏●✿: true, very true. honestly this doesnt seem too far fetched that eridan could be betraying everyone again. hes just as much of a coward as gamzee is, except gamzees also got a huge dose of religious devotion to fuel him. eridan seems to be one who always deems all hope is lost, and that theres no chance if he doesnt join the winning team. its quite likely that a version or him, or several, could be working on the opposing side due to fear of double death
i saw this post and i just
im screaming okay if eridan doesnt have something to do with all of this im going to be pissed
