Ok guys. Here goes. I am going to attempt to divert concern from Dave Strider, who the fandom seems to think is marked for extra-special death, to John Egbert, who actually might be. This is based primarily on character and thematic readings, which of course may be interpreted in different ways by different people. As you know, I am not Andrew Hussie. Thus, I obviously could be wrong. I don’t know what’s going to happen or what is intended. But allow me to make my case.
First of all, it would make no thematic sense to kill Dave forever.
