These lips are sealed

Surely I'm not the only one whos noticed that this is a repeated phrase in the game? I've heard plenty of times now and I'm sure we'll be hearing it plenty more. It must be some sort of extremely powerful magic placed first on Faith and probaly others so that they can't reveal harmful secrets to Bigby.

  • More like two times by Faith and the Mirror, but it does imply some sort of magic if it prevent the Mirror from telling Bigby.

  • Yes , there is definitely powerful magic involved. I start thinking there's more than just one man involved in the murders.

  • I'm wondering about the ribbon Faith was wearing. She was trying to get Wolf to notice it and when asked she says she's trying to tell you the best she can. Was the ribbon enchanted? it also had a pair of lips on it, probably keeps her from taking it off and telling anyone about whatever they wanted to hide.

  • I must say I have read only a few theories and they all are good. Somebody said something about memory wipes and the ribbion jogging those memories, this and HeartLockers theory. It's quite interesting!

  • Oh I need need to say this! Please somebody send me a video of what happens if you talk about her ribbion. The two play throughs I've seen both say the top right hand selection.

  • Just as an little info to everyone, there is actually a fairytale of a girl with a ribbon around her neck, and when the ribbon was removed her head would automatically fall off.

    • Yeah, but Faith is Donkeyskin Girl. Unless the fable in question relates to Donkeyskin Girl, I can only assume it's a coincidence. But that's a useful thing to know, seeing as the symbol was in the Book of Fables, meaning it has some further significance.

      • Why you think so? Because this was written in books? Maybe photo is fake...

        • Might be the same ribbon on a different person.
          One of the versions of the tale(there are other versions with black or red ribbons):
          Jane wore a yellow ribbon around her neck everyday. And I mean everyday, rain or shine, whether it matched her outfit or not. It annoyed her best friend Johnny after a while. He was her next door neighbor and had known Jane since she was three. When he was young, he had barely noticed the yellow ribbon, but now they were in high school together, it bothered him.

          “Why do you wear that yellow ribbon around your neck, Jane?” he’d ask her every day. But she wouldn’t tell him.

          Still, in spite of this aggravation, Johnny thought she was cute. He asked her to the soda shoppe for an ice cream sundae. Then he asked her to watch him play in the football game. Then he started seeing her home. And come the spring, he asked her to the dance. Jane always said yes when he asked her out. And she always wore a yellow dress to match the ribbon around her neck.

          It finally occurred to Johnny that he and Jane were going steady, and he still didn’t know why she wore the yellow ribbon around her neck. So he asked her about it yet again, and yet again she did not tell him. “Maybe someday I’ll tell you about it,” she’d reply. Someday! That answer annoyed Johnny, but he shrugged it off, because Jane was so cute and fun to be with.

          Well, time flew past, as it has a habit of doing, and one day Johnny proposed to Jane and was accepted. They planned a big wedding, and Jane hinted that she might tell him about the yellow ribbon around her neck on their wedding day. But somehow, what with the preparations and his beautiful bride, and the lovely reception, Johnny never got around to asking Jane about it. And when he did remember, she got a bit teary-eyed, and said: “We are so happy together, what difference does it make?” And Johnny decided she was right.

          Johnny and Jane raised a family of four, with the usual ups and downs, laughter and tears. When their golden anniversary rolled around, Johnny once again asked Jane about the yellow ribbon around her neck. It was the first time he’d brought it up since the week after their wedding. Whenever their children asked him about it, he’d always hushed them, and somehow none of the kids had dared ask their mother. Jane gave Johnny as sad look and said: “Johnny, you’ve waited this long. You can wait awhile longer.”

          And Johnny agreed. It was not until Jane was on her death bed a year later that Johnny, seeing his last chance slip away, asked Jane one final time about the yellow ribbon she wore around her neck. She shook her head a bit at his persistence, and then said with a sad smile: “Okay Johnny, you can go ahead and untie it.”

          With shaking hands, Johnny fumbled for the knot and untied the yellow ribbon around his wife’s neck.

          And Jane’s head fell off.

  • i have a feeling that the sealed part of "my lips are sealed" refers to her ring and her family seal (which she probably uses on her letters) so maybe her family is involved, her father may simply be missing a hand and not actually be dead

    • I don't think he's just missing a hand because Bigby wanted the mirror to show him the old king, not just his hand. And I don't reckon he was a wizard either since the mirror was affected as well.

      • it's just a possible theory and we don't really know how the mirror works, but if the king is using the same magic to hide him as he was faith the mirror may have only been able to find his unhidden hand, that had the ring with the family seal on it
