"These lips are sealed"

I been thinking about this for a bit. When you saved Faith. She said the exact phrase "These lips are sealed" when you asked her who she was working for. She had been pretty open about everything else.

Then

In the mirror, when you ask to show Faith, not only can he not show you faith. He repeats the Phrase exactly as she said it. "These lips are sealed"

Given the next episode is about magic. Could it be a binding spell that prevents them from discussing it. One thing for Faith Say it, but the mirror in exactly same wording.

Also, I don't believe she's dead. If she was in the mirror would shown you her. I think it's an illusion. What do you think?

Also I check tell tale twitter earlier today.

Why is @DaveFennoy in the studio with #TheWolfAmongUs production team? Find out soon in Episode Two: Smoke & Mirrors! pic.twitter.com/Uzc4cJwDc5

I believe Dave is the person who voiced Lee not sure. I'm convinced the suspect is her pimp though. Given the information. I wish I could figure out which fable he was.

  • When you mention to Prince Lawrence that his wife is 'missing', he mentions Georgie. Someone else mentioned Georgie Porgie could be/probably is the pimp. I do think "these lips are sealed" is a spell arranged by the pimp.

  • Good point. I forgot that on my second play through. He does mention that. I suppose we will meet the pimp in the next eposide. It's nearly impossible to try figure it out from first episode. Though I would say, the community is doing a good job at trying.

    Clue A: Georgie

    Clue B: These lips are sealed

    The next episode is named Smoke and Mirrors. Hopefully, that will give us more information to go on.

    Is it just me or do a lot of characters (especially the hookers) smoke in this game? I do think Smoke and Mirrors has double meaning. A smoking mirror is also a disguise/ruse to detract from the truth, an illusion. The Mirror must play a large part, too.

  • Honestly, I think the smoking part of it, is just to look cool. This is a more modern era. Instead of pink bunny's on Disney Channel you might come across. They take Fables a bit more seriously. (I mean who heard of a fable Hooker. I'm not complaining though) I think smoking is just that.

    I am curious about the glamor. It's supposed be something to conceal them to make them look human. That's first thing that Wolf Mentions to the Frog. Perhaps that's somehow tied into game, or we'd go into more detail about it. Maybe the pimp jacks up prices on that, like that toad complained about.

    It's possible what you say though.

    I sincerely believe smoke and mirrors is used to describe magic, that's first thing people might think of. I'm not ruling your idea out, it's possible. Just explaining what I believe as well.

    Yeah that phrase has some meaning for sure. Also when you find Faith's head at the doorstep the ring has been put in her mouth. I think that has some meaning to the mystery as well.

  • It sucks when you hear it from a prostitute.

  • Oh, I see what you did there.

  • This is not really related, but "These Lips are Sealed" can be anagramed into "A Pester Lie Headless"

  • Or "Headless lies a Peter"! Nah. I'll get my coat.

  • Does anyone know how much Glamour cost. They were complaining about paying it. Who exactly sells it and why was toad complain, I'm curious.

  • I believe Toad was complaining about Glamour as he mentioned early on in the game that the price keeps getting higher, yet the quality keeps going down.

    Well thats what I got in my playthrough, not sure about yours though.

    Here's a description from the game about Glamour:

    Glamours are spells that allow the user to change their appearance. They are expensive, but can be purchased by non-human Fables in order to pass for human among the mundies. Cheap glamours can be found in the seedier parts of Fabletown, but they are often unreliable and prone to sudden failure.

    No idea how much it costs and if the fables use money as their currency to get a Glamour. Bigby adviced Toad to visit a witch to get a Glamour, so I expect they are the ones who sells it (and perhaps creates it as well).

  • yeah in the preview when the Mirror prophesises about something like:
    "friend against friend at the end of the end", shown to mean beast and bigby, but I think there will be greater meaning. But I think that they smoke because of the time its set in and the seediness of the areas they live in.

  • I never said it didn't fit the situation, only there's Smoke in the title.

    Bigby and Beast fighting is certainly something I'm concerned about and want to prevent, if possible.

    I haven't read the comics but it seems possible to me that Glamour is obtainable from other sources, less authentic sources. Maybe there are reputable witches and disreputable witches, I don't know.

  • "These lips are sealed",Smoke and Mirrors and the Pimp

    these major hint/clues will more then likely be in ep 2.I think that it will be in a different way then people might think though.If i was going to be a "Mass Murderer" i wouldn't use my own "supplies/product" i would use someone else s.I would use a pimps "working girl" and pay the pimp off to keep him quit,like a middle man.I would also put a spell on that girl or girls so they wouldn't talk.That way if things go bad i can cut my ties(if the pimp didn't know who i was)and make him the fall guy,hint the title Smoke and Mirrors.
    p.s-if i didn't make sense im sorry

  • you never know,it is a spell to keep them quit.....so it might be something

  • I never thought of "these lips are sealed" as a spell, but that's an interesting possibility. I did notice it and figured it may be an old fairy tale rhyme I wasn't familiar with. Sort of like a "slang" term for Fables that they all understood.

  • well i said it a spell because of the mirror saying "though power magic her Whereabouts unknown,unfortunately for you these lips are SEALED".

  • Or Bigby cursed himself and therefor anything to do with Faith ends up with the saying "these lips are sealed". It is complex though. Tear off Grendel's arm to read Bigby's Vengeance entry. From that entry look up Bigby's father remembering that the donkey in Faith's story shit gold. One tale fits.

  • Location, dead bodies don't need protection. They are being hidden by a spell. I'm certain of it they are alive. Very odd have it repeated exactly the same way twice.

    That can't be accidental.

  • you do raise a valid point because when talking to the mirror you can ask to see faiths father...and he's dead so "these lips.." Must be a spell

  • It means..something.

    These lips are sealed..missing something...they're sealed. How does the mirror say these lips are sealed.

    Through powerful magic their ..something concealed, sadly for you these lips are sealed.

    Means something. Just not looking at it the right way.

    Hm. Even though I read the comics, I don´t really know how magic works in the fable universe. It certainly might be that there is a kind of "general" spell keeping everyone from talking about certain things - like faith´s whereabouts for example.
    But if someone has to cast a spell like this "on" someone - meaning, if faith herself was enchanted to keep her from speaking, this would mean that the same someone must have had access to the mirror to enchant him as well.
    But instead, it might be that Bigby himself is the one enchanted - hence the words for you these lips are sealed.

  • All of you are talking about the glamour,mirror but the bodies where are they? where is snow and faith's body? maybe there is a spell that gives you a fable's head we need to find the bodies first and then see if they are dead or not (btw i havent read a single comic about fables :P)

  • You follow the series and have No idea how such a spell works? It is demonstrated & explained many times. Typically these spells are obtained by witches/magic users through purchase, unless of course they're magic users, and are usually administered through physical contact such as having a powder sprayed in your face or an enchanted object placed upon you.

  • It is an enchantment spell cast on the subject that restricts whatever the user doesn't wish them to disclose. A guaranteed 'Omerta', although there usually is a duration of some time as with most spells in Fables universe.
