** Just when we thought Jay had found someone with the same symptoms as him, [[spoiler:Jessica vanishes into thin air seconds before the Masked Man makes his return.

** A little bit of FridgeHorror: Where was Alex when Slendy showed up?



** Little bit of FridgeHorror: [[spoiler:as Alex was beating the guy, we get the signature sound and picture distortion. So, does that mean that Slendy is there, that [[BrainwashedAndCrazy Slendy is controlling Alex]], or that [[TheVirus Alex is becoming one of Slendy's agents?]]]]
** Look at Alex as he [[spoiler: stands over the body]]. The angle of the camera gives the illusion of elongated limbs and increased height. Yes. [[spoiler: He looks like Slendy]]. Sweet dreams.

** When the camera blurs and focuses on Alex, look past him. [[spoiler:That's gotta be the Operator. And neither Jay nor Alex sees him.]]
*** What part of the entry was that (time please)?
*** 3:55. [[spoiler:Could easily be a tree, though.]]



** Oh, you can do better than that. How about [[spoiler: the camera freezing on an image of the Operator in the background, followed by a split-second of him suddenly being right in our face? And that's only the start of the nightmare fuel.]]

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1jlbdYFY79M Entry #52]] Hooo, boy. First off, it continues the events of Entry 48, with Jay and Jessica going to meet with Alex at Rosswood Park. He takes them to an abandoned buidling and leads them upstairs. He tells Jay that what he wants to show them is across the room, so Jay walks over, sees nothing and turns around [[spoiler: to find Alex holding him at gunpoint, shouting that he knows everything Jay has been doing while Jessica screams for him to stop]]. It gets even better when [[spoiler: Masky appears from behind some rubble and very slowly approaches Alex. He then tackles him, and Jay takes the opportunity to grab Jessica and run. As they are leaving, a single shot is fired. We do not see who pulled the trigger, or who, if anyone, got hit. Even more terrifying is if you consider that Masky shows up later after the seven month period. Alex has not yet]]. [[FromBadToWorse And that's just the first part of the video.]]

** The montage of Alex's terrible actions really puts the series into a new perspective and changes a lot of the dynamic of Season 1.
** This entry also has some FridgeHorror when you realize that [[spoiler: chronologically, the last thing Jay had uploaded was Entry #26. Alex was angry at Jay for "incriminating him", but at that point the worst thing he'd done was shout at someone for not leaving the camera on. Since then we've seen him break Tim/Masky's leg, MURDER a guy, apparently sacrifice Brian to the Operator, and attempt to kill Tim and Jay. And Alex knows that the footage of all this is on YouTube for all to see. That was then. How must he feel now?]]

** Then there's the the increasingly sinister nature of the hospital now that it's hinted to be [[spoiler:the same location shown in [[WhamEpisode Entries #22 and #23]]]]. Alex even seems to be [[spoiler: wearing the same hat from Entry #22 and mentions going in with Seth later that day and Brian the next day, implying that the events of this entry, Entry #51, and Entry #22 all happened within 24 hours of each other.]] This raises the question of just what the hell is going on with that hospital.

** We get to see where he went after driving off: back to the abandoned hospital. He then starts screaming, clawing at the walls, and reacting to something that isn't there. By the end of this, he's bursting into tears and overdosing on drugs in order to calm himself. Poor guy.
*** It's ''horrifying'' when Tim points towards the doors and says [[spoiler: "It came from there!"]] What's worse is that those doors look like the kind that usually lead toward an ''[[FridgeHorror Operating]]'' room.

** Morover this entry offers two nasty helpings of FridgeHorror. Firstly [[spoiler: the fact that Alex was stalking Tim after he escaped the Operator's realm, with the probable intention of murdering him given the gun he had on him. As if the nightmarish Eldritch Abomination stalking them and fucking with their minds wasnt bad enough, Jay and Tim have an honest to god psychopath hunting them down.]] Secondly [[spoiler: given Alex's little smirk when ToTheArk/Hoodie was about to shoot him, its almost certain he knows the Operator is protecting him, and is thus pretty much untouchable.]]

** Really, the moment Jay [[spoiler:says he saw something,]] any savvy viewer will be on the edge of their seat for the rest of the entry, dreading the moment when everything goes wrong.
** They also found what appears to be tapes containing unseen raw footage from Marble Hornets that Alex tried to burn, which leads to some FridgeHorror: The clips we saw in Season 1, as scary as they were, were the ones that Alex didn't burn. These were the ones he tried to get rid of first. What is ON these tapes?

** What's more is that fans of Marble Hornets will often look very far in the videos to find potential clues, even in very vague places. When Jay thought he saw something, several people went back to try and find it, even though it was revealed to be nothing more than a hallucination. Seeing how Jay is now thinking he sees things out of suspicion, [[TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou think about what that means about the viewers]].



*** When Tim [[spoiler:approaches the Operator, watch his head. He turns to look at him, [[SignatureMove tilting his head slightly]] as he watches Tim stand up to him. Just like in Entry #1, that simple movement delivers a 9.3 on the [[HolyShitQuotient pucker factor]].]]

Suddenly, [[spoiler: Jay attacks Tim and steals a tape from him. Tim insists that he hid the tape because Jay isn't ready to watch it. Jay quickly runs away, coughing up a fit while the screen begins to distort.]]
** These leaves two cases of FridgeHorror as well. [[spoiler: First, why did Jay flip into a rage? Did his latest encounter with the Operator turn him into a Proxy? Second, what the fuck is on that tape that made Tim try to hide it.]]
** Something definitely seems wrong considering Jay added no narration in light of what happened, not even attempting to explain or justify it.
** Hell, just the moment when Jay (and the audience) notices [[spoiler: the taped-shaped bulge in Tim's pocket]] will have you wondering what's about to happen.
** At this point it’s questionable [[spoiler: whether either of them are trustworthy. Is Jay so addled by paranoia that he’ll attack his only ally, or was his reaction to Tim’s attempt to keep the tape from him justified? Why does Tim, previously enraged that Jay was keeping secrets from him, see nothing wrong with doing the same? Whatever is on that tape is either incredibly incriminating, or contains a secret that completely changes the game. Is the reason Tim drugged Jay a lie? Is Tim less affected by the Operator’s presence because of the meds, or is he falling back into… old habits? Lastly, why wouldn’t Hoodie take the tape with him? It wasn’t so Alex wouldn’t notice he broke into Tim’s house—after all, the motive was already theft, and Alex would likely realize the meds were missing. Was Hoodie’s intention in filming the location of the tape to alert Jay to its existence? And why? To drive a wedge between Jay and Tim?]]
** It gets worse. Jay's [[spoiler: sudden outburst and warning at Tim not to follow him is eerily reminiscent of Alex's prior behaviour. Combined with the prior decline of mental health, it seems Jay could be leading down the same path as Alex.]]
*** On a slightly more positive note, [[spoiler: Jay posted on Twitter about how he's hesitating to watch the tape, considering the possibility that maybe Tim DID have a good reason.]]

If Tim doesn't take his pills, he breaks into a coughing fit and eventually ends up as the feral Masky. And Hoody has been shown taking said pills. What if it's for the same reason?

** If you look closely, you can see that right as Tim is leaving Benedict Hall, the Operator's reflection can be seen in the door. Admittedly, it could be this troper's imagination. The camera goes haywire when Tim walks to the approximate location as the Operator was seen, though.

** Apparently, Jay [[GoryDiscretionShot edited out some of the more disturbing things Alex did,]] just telling us what happened in the interim. [[NothingIsScarier Somehow that's just]] [[NothingIsScarier just so much worse.]]

* The previews for ECKVA (the reboot/retool of WebVideo/ClearLakes44) has a heaping of Nightmare Fuel already...
** There are three tweets one the account that read
--> i see with new eyes

--> will you go as far as i have

--> -i believe none-
--> -all curious will regret-
** There is also a [[http://eckva.net/alis/ new website]], containing this short poem.
--> ''the home is almost silent''
--> ''in the bed you toss and turn''
--> ''OUTSIDE ARE QUIET FOOTSTEPS
--> ''AS THE HOUSE BEGINS TO BURN''
** Aaaaand [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4iBnnpn7-F8 the first video is out]].
* Whoever or whatever is running the ECKVA broadcast is stalking the investigator. The investigator applied for ECKVA several years prior but does not recall ever being hired.
* The freeze frame moments in the test footage videos where figures or even the background will pick up a NightmareFace that seems very unfriendly.
* Whoever is running the broadcasts also knows where the investigator lives as they left a cryptic postcard in their mailbox...
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ajHmrHiuex4 ECKVA5]] After a few initially odd videos, this is the first actually somewhat scary upload. A window, in which a VERY creepy face appears, before the broadcast is interrupted.
-->''NORMAL ECKVA SERVICE HAS BEEN INTERRUPTED TO BRING YOU AN IMPORTANT SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT: [[spoiler: THERE WILL BE A KNOCK AT THE DOOR. DO NOT OPEN IT. STAY INSIDE TODAY AND WATCH TV. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT. KEEP LOOKING AT ME. KEEP LOOKING AT ME. KEEP KE- (Cut off by interrupted internet, as shown in [=ECKVA6=].)]]
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2kNhn94vrYA ECKVA6]] The person investigating ECKVA heads out to an abandoned house in the woods which is apparently the only place that picks up the ECKVA signal, which should be long dead. After repairing the signal, he goes home where he finds a new broadcast already waiting for him. [[spoiler: It's a still image of the same creepy face from before, with only one sentence: "ARE YOU SORRY FOR LEAVING". IT KNOWS HE'S WATCHING.]]
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BCzAAhpp8ys ECKVA7]] Another episode of the strange "alis pastry" which appears to be another message direct to our protagonist.
--> ''diagnosis:''
--> ''does not see what's important''
--> ''house call dispatched''
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qpUKcrs-e50 ECKVA9]] The investigator goes back to their loaned house and finds a mysterious note along with a single pill of Preaxin. The note provides the password to a previously locked webpage which says that a user named [[spoiler: [[ArcWords ark]]listener]] is online. It also reveals that the housecall was intended for our protagonist via a crude 8-bit representation of both on the latest ECKVA broadcast.

* Entry #52... Hooo, boy. First off, it continues the events of Entry 48, with Jay and Jessica going to meet with Alex at Rosswood Park. He takes them to an abandoned buidling and leads them upstairs. He tells Jay that what he wants to show them is across the room, so Jay walks over, sees nothing and turns around [[spoiler: to find Alex holding him at gunpoint, shouting that he knows everything Jay has been doing while Jessica screams for him to stop]]. It gets even better when [[spoiler: Masky appears from behind some rubble and very slowly approaches Alex. He then tackles him, and Jay takes the opportunity to grab Jessica and run. As they are leaving, a single shot is fired. We do not see who pulled the trigger, or who, if anyone, got hit. Even more terrifying is if you consider that Masky shows up later after the seven month period. Alex has not yet]]. [[FromBadToWorse And that's just the first part of the video.]]

* Hell, look no further than [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bn59FJ4HrmU Entry #1.]] [[{{NothingIsScarier}} There's no sound, firstly]], so you don't know what's going to happen. Then Alex peeks out a window, and [[{{FaceRevealingTurn}} we meet our star.]]

* At one point, the ''Marble Hornets'' site was just an empty black screen with one small caption: [[NothingIsScarier "Pending investigation, this site is not available."]] However, the site is back to normal now. Use WayBackMachine, I guess.
