Theories About the Killer
After playing the Wolf Among Us Episode 1, I was left with much more questions than answers. All we know is that Fabletown has a killer on the loose, but who? I thought about it and came up with some theories about the killer, but I am open to other suggestions. (Anything except the red-haired guy that appears everywhere in the episode. I've seen too many of that and it didn't really make any sense to me.)
So here are my theories:
The Woodsman: At the beginning of the episode, it was very easy to name the Woodsman as our first suspect, however as the story continues, we start to see less of a connection between the Woodsman and the murder. I do remember reading a thread about someone using the Woodsman's axe, since Bigby deduces the weapon needed magic and the fact that the Woodsman hardly has his axe for the rest of the episode.
Faith herself: On another discussion, someone posted how the ribbon on Faith's neck reminded him/her of the Green Ribbon story, in which a little girl lived with a green ribbon tied around her neck and when it was removed, the head fell off. I don't know how exactly it would connect, but who knows.
Bluebeard: this character was known for decapitating his wives after marrying them in the Homelands, and it's easy to see (though unlikely) the connection with the murders. Based on pictures, we might find out more in Episode 4.
The Headless Horseman: When we learn that Faiths murder was probably a message to Ichabob Crane, I immediately thought of the Headless Horseman. It kind of makes sense and we don't even know why the cowardly Crane became the mayor. It could be one of the cases where the roles of the villain and hero were actually flipped, with Crane as a corrupt lord and the Headless Horseman as the real hero chasing the villain.
The Queen of Hearts: It took me a while to come up with this, but when I was thinking about fairy tale characters that like to decapitate people, I thought about the Queen of Hearts. Given the fact that Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum are involved, it's possible that they are merely henchman for her. She could be operating a smuggling operation under the guise of prostitution and Faith was about to expose her, so she had her decapitated. While this probably makes the most sense, it is still a wild guess given the little evidence we start with. We just have to wait for the rest of the season to be released.
What are your thoughts?
