* What? I'm being serious: Valve has said that it will be easing off single player for a while. We have an unlimited amount of customizable characters (The [[spoiler: cryopreserved test subjects from the end of Portal 2's co-op]]), we have a huge, sprawling world (Aperture Laboratories), and we have proof from {{Vindictus}} that a Source-based MMO can work.

* In the game, you have a ''gun'' (phallic) that shoots ''holes'' (yonic).
* You then ''enter'' (a metaphor for sex or return to the womb) and subsequently ''emerge'' (birth) from these holes.
* You, as the main character, are a young woman who has a confused relationship with a controlling maternal figure (GLaDOS).
* And at the end, you're ejected out of a confining, "earthy" space into a bright and confusing outside world (another birth metaphor).
* This motif is continued and expanded in Portal 2, with the separation between GLaDOS and Chell at the end being reminiscent of a child grown to adulthood (no, not that kind of AdultChild) and leaving her parents behind. The lyrics of "Want You Gone" just sell it.

* GLaDOS is a refined version of the rampant AI [[Franchise/DotHack Morganna Mode Gone]]. Morganna and GLaDOS are products of advance technology [[AIIsACrapShoot gone]] [[GoneHorriblyWrong horribly wrong]] and both talk in that [[CreepyMonotone creepy female monotone voice]] promising [[IWasToldThereWouldBeCake wonderful]] [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment promises]] but quickly [[TheCakeIsALie go back on said promises]]. Likewise Chell is [[Franchise/DotHack Aura]] which is why GLaDOS is so vindictive to her.

** A long shot but the weighted companion cube ejected from the facility is the one which contains Caroline's personality. It was GLaDOS's way of deleting her.
*** GLaDOS has a room specifically for incinerating test subjects. Why would she hide dead bodies in companion cubes when she has that?

[[WMG: Chell is actually in a coma]] Chell was driving home from her schizophrenic brother's (Doug Rattmann) house, with her twin daughter and son (defective turret and normal turret), and her oldest son with Asperger's and ADHD (Space Core), along with her husband (Wheatley). On her way, she got in a car crash,and Portal was her coma dream, like [[DrawnToLife certain things.]] [=GLaDOS=] was her boss, all of the cores except the ones listed above were her coworkers, and Cave and Caroline were her parents. In her coma, she saw the negative in everything, so Wheatley going mad was her husband going mad whenever someone called him a moron. Her oldest son (Space core) was extremely autisic, to a point where he ignored everything around him, and he was obsessed wih space. Her twins were very rough-and-tumble and were constantly hurting people on accident. Her boss was basically JJ Johnson from Spiderman. Doug became what he was because he was very paranoid, and hat a dog named C.C., who he always talked to. Cave, bcause he was an inventor and bright, but his ideas were impractical. Caroline was a ditz who was supisingly responsible. And ATLAS and P-Body were Wheatley's brother and sister.
[[WMG: "Caroline Deleted" is a truncated statement.]] The full line is about Caroline deleting something, perhaps GLaDOS' desire to prevent test subject victory.

* I got the impression that GLaDOS was pretending to be a none sentient A.I a-la The Announcer, hense the [SUBJECT NAME HERE], the convenient glitches and refering herself as "we" and "us" (as in, Aperture). She only REALLY drops all pretence near the end. Although it IS notable that, originally,The Announcer sounded like Portal 1!GLaDOS

The walls in that secttion were panels that could switch between portalable and non-portalable. Doug Rattman, who was watching Chell, switched the panels just before Chell came to the room, and GLaDOS didn't notice until Chell started to escape, hence her surprise.

* "Maybe when I delete you I'll stop feeling so bad" is that the reason why GLaDOS attempted to delete Caroline wasn't because she disliked her core self (which she only realized freed from the main system with all those 'other voices') but because of Caroline's humanity assaulting her with various feelings of guilt, loneliness and longing.

* The verse "Go make some new disaster/ That's what I'm counting on/ You're someone else's problem" is either referring to other humans, or to the Combine. Or possibly both. It's made clear during the co-op courses that there's still a human population on Earth, and during Portal 1, GLaDOS insinuated she was the only thing standing in the way of the Combine forces locating (and overrunning) Aperture Science. Since she's been dead for a few hundred years, she of course has no way of knowing whether or not the said forces are still around, and so must err on the side of caution and assume they are. She's turning Chell loose on them as revenge for trampling around on top of her complex.
* GLaDOS's re-introduction to her own human origins during the course of the second game has left her with a certain degree of affection for Chell, who stuck by her even when she didn't have to. However, hen she was reconnected to the mainframe, she returned to the flood of server directives regarding testing, meaning she would feel compelled to make Chell undergo further tests if Chell stayed. Eventually, Chell was going to fail one, if only from sheer exhaustion from the relentless testing. Therefore, the only way GLaDOS could determine to keep Chell safe was to get her out of Aperture. GLaDOS sacrificed Chell's friendship and her own happiness for the sake of Chell's safety. Whatever was out there post-Combine was (by GLaDOS's determination) better than a lifetime of testing. Once Chell was gone, GLaDOS planned to delete all records of her from the database so GLaDOS wouldn't feel compelled to seek her out for any reason.

[[WMG: Wheatley and GLaDOS are Chell's parents.]]
* If GLaDOS is Caroline downloaded on to a computer, and you believe that Cave and Caroline were in a romantic relationship, it is possible. All that leaves is connecting it to Wheatley. Wheatley and Cave were both the creators of crazy and unworkable ideas. If, just before he died, Cave was secretly placed under the same type of cryogenic sleep as the test subjects, so he could be put into his computer. But, due to mixed up orders, they put Caroline in, as he demanded in the message. But, with this technology available, they decided to put him a a core. This caused his voice to change and him to loose his memory. Thus, Chell was with her parents all along.

Going with the above WMG about rebelling against their creator, and assuming GLaDOS didn't lie about the 5000 other teams, you can create your own robot, choosing frame type, eye color, etc. Could be a green-eyed android, or a purple-eyed robot shaped like a cube. Atlas, plugged into "that stick on the wall", will try to guide you through the test chambers, and you can understand what he says. Also, he will probably be the final boss of co-op when in the end you will rebel against him.

* In test chamber 16 she is telling you that there is going to be a surprise (death trap) in the next test. So what's in the next test then? Nothing. Nothing at all. She doesn't even mention the word surprise. Do you wonder why she doesn't kill you? Thank Doug Rattmann for that. He probably knew GLaDOS where going to kill Chell. He didn't have time and equippment to shut down the entire neurotoxin generator, so he destroyed the pipe where the neurotoxine where flooding (remember, this is the den where you can hear him scream, and also his last den) then he eventually died by the poison. GLaDOS simply ignores the surprise, hoping you forgot it, and then make a new surprise in the very next one.
[[WMG: In the final scene, Wheatley is [[spoiler: apologizing to GLaDOS, not Chell.]]]]
* He regrets abandoning his real purpose to try to escape with Chell. Alternatively, he regrets ''ever'' serving his real purpose by [[spoiler: slowing down GLaDOS' thinking, thereby driving her mad and hindering the advancement of science.]] Perhaps his new vantage point gave him some perspective, and he realizes that he only ever made things worse.
* Aternatively, he could be apoligizing to the Mainframe/Caroline for leaving her/being a jerk (maybe) to her.

This might be a long shot, but think about it: they're both [[spoiler: Rogue AI's]] that were trying to destroy an [[spoiler: insect in their lairs.]] And some people think of GLaDOS as the [[spoiler: SHODAN]] of the new generation. Or the password could of been simply [[spoiler: Lemons.]]

It's vastly intelligent and knew that Wheatley was the key to destroying the facility. Somehow, it gave Wheatley the idea of using test subjects to get him in charge. The plan was to escape as soon as the laboratories were destroyed. GLaDOS was the only one who suspected it of being the real villain, and given that it wanted Wheatley to stay in charge for as long as possible, it spends most of chapters 6 and 7 trying to keep GLaDOS out of the way.

The bird is a raven/crow (black), while in one of Valve's other games, VideoGame/TeamFortress2, The Medic has a flock of pet doves (white). Both GLaDOS and Medic are mad scientists. Medic is male, and his chosen profession, fondness for symbolically angelic birds, and chatty, personable behavior in "Meet The Medic" would lead you to believe he's a nice guy, but he's also a sadist and a two-faced liar. GLaDOS is ([[spoiler:or was, when she was human]]) female, would have you believe she's heartless and wants all living beings dead, but [[spoiler:becomes mother to three baby birds at the end of the Peer Review DLC- birds she intends to turn into killing machines, but still]]. Heck, it looks like the bird's actually a reskin of Medic's pet dove Archimedes.

A crow can be seen on his shoulder in Anticitizen-one in Half-Life 2. The Bird has been watching Chell and reporting back to the G-man its findings. It also has been pulling some strings (rebooting Wheatley, carrying GLaDOS off and bringing Her to a spot where Chell can easily find Her). GLaDOS eventually figures out that the Bird isn't normal and tries to warn Chell ("Kill it! It's Evil!!") but to no effect. It's three demon bird-spawn that GLaDOS adopts will either kill the AI with their murderous time-space altering powers, or become her unstoppable avian army.

This evidence leads me to believe that GLaDOS faked her own death - or self destructed - after you threw all the cores into the incinerator. Why?

Also, this is jossed by the sequel when you wake GLaDoS up, and she treats you as her murderer.

* Somewhat, sort of confirmed.

So at least Valve is thinking about bringing him back.

* It was directed at the scientists who uploaded Caroline into GLaDOS. Think about it. The unused dialogue implies that Caroline didn't like the brain uploading process, and likely found it very painful.

Yeah, they try to kill you whenever they can, but think about it. You're stuck in a facility miles underground, being forced through mind-bending tests. Indefinitely. They're all aware of this, and rather than let you live like a rat in a maze they go for a MercyKill. GLaDOS uses this awareness as a tool in the tests, as just another deadly obstacle to overcome. When you knock them over and they say that they don't hate you, they ''mean it''. And then, when you're finally on your way to freedom, they gather together and sing to you.

* It could be a strategy game where you play as a core and run part of Aperture so GLaDOS can get more science done elsewhere. Because a few things that happened while GLaDOS was either dead or dealing with Chell, Wheately, a possible incompetant core elsewhere, or the Co-Op campaign, and it HAS been shown that portions of the facility are damaged, the master AI of Aperture has delegated the job of fixing things to her subordinates.

GLaDOS seemed to think that the destruction of the morality core is why she was unable to turn them off, but if you think about it, it's possible that Doug Rattmann somehow hacked the system and turned on the rocket turret knowing that it could knock her cores off.

Like the itch to test and the shock if it gives hints, there's a rule built into the control system that the subject always has to have a chance. This is why the test chambers always have reachable exits, even when Wheately is throwing them together and doesn't know what he's doing. It's also why the death traps always have a portalable surface around. It's why killing you is hard, when with Glados's level of control over the facility it should be really easy.

Cave Prime saw the CaveDOS universe, realized that Greg was right about how bad an idea creating GlaDOS would be and canceled the project. Without Greg, he likely would have gone ahead with it despite the ominous portents. The theory: Cave Prime has consciously realized that Greg has saved his life. Perhaps on multiple occasions, as provable by examination of multiple Greg-less universes. Cave Prime's awareness of Greg's importance as a historical linchpin may have resulted in him attempting to trade Greg to Dark Cave - if Cave Prime can prove Greg's importance to a Greg-less Cave, that Cave would trade anything for him.

Retcons? Continuity Errors? ArtEvolution? Nope! Just different universes. The events of Portal 1 still happened in the P2 Earth, although with a few differences (The elevators, cubes, GLaDOS and the Emancipation Grills looks like they do in Portal two, GLaDOS act a bit more like she does in Portal 2, the facility is bigger, GLaDOS doesn't sing Still Alive since she's actually dead until 99999999 ect. ect.) since GLaDOS keeps talking about the events of the game.

There might have been a Portal 2 in the P1 universe, but considering the original (P1) timeline had no mention of a certain Personal Assistant, things might have gone diffrently in that universe...

GlaDOS said the Companion Cube are sentients. Sure, that may be a lie, but in the comic Lab Rat, almost all the dialog is between Ratman and his Cube. His cube give him precious advices to avoid turrets. However, it create a paradox, because Rattman ain't supposed to know where the turrets are to begin with (unless he take a peek, but that would be extremely dangerous). The Cube, on the other hand, can very well have a Wi-Fi connexion with Aperture Science's central command, and thus can know the position of the turrets near him. When Rattman take his pills, he stops hearing the Cube. Maybe his mental disease allow him to "hear" what the Cube has to say, and one of his pill's side-effect suppress this temporaly. The line of the Cube "I were never gone" support this, since it would mean the Cube never stopped to exist into Rattman's mind, he simply couldn't hear it.

Caroline's new shift toward a negative attitude culminated when she became pregnant by the seed of Doug, and attempted every possible measure to hide her pregnancy from Cave while she was on the job. Unfortunately for her, she could not hide the intense pain and suffering of labor. Cave oversaw her labor and made sure she and her child survived it. He was angry. Even though he knew she was "married to science," he felt as if ''he'' was the one she had cheated on. He took the newborn Chell and had her adopted out to an arbitrary researcher against Caroline's will, only to ever be seen again on bring-your-daughter-to-work day each year. Caroline fell into a deep, bitter, sardonic depression. This explains the dramatic shift in her tone between her earlier recordings and the recording in which she says, "Sir, the testing." It also explains why, in Lab Rat, Rattman was so desperate to help Chell at any cost, and GLaDOS seemed especially disgusted with him. Finally, it explains why GLaDOS looks like an upside-down pregnant woman in bondage: the pregnant figure represents the pregnancy, obviously, and the appearance of bondage symbolizes the oppression and atrocities to which Caroline was subjected, particularly pertaining to her child.

The upload was the straw that broke the camel's back. After booting, GLaDOS immediately flooded the facility with deadly neurotoxin. And why wouldn't she? She carried the burden of a woman who'd had her newborn baby torn from her grip, shortly before being tied down and having her head cut open by the very man who had taken her child. Besides which, if the upload occurred ''while she was struggling and protesting'', and the brain emulation program ''didn't reset her state of mind'' upon booting, she very well may have booted directly into the state of confusion, primal horror, and relentless flow of adrenaline that comes inherently with being strapped to a table by someone you know and having the top half of your head slced off while you scream at the top of your lungs. If you were getting mauled by an angry bear one second, and then suddenly blinked your eyes the next and found yourself in a laboratory, surrounded with people in white coats staring at you, you'd probably start killing people, too.

* The grey concrete style Portal 1 chambers came after the wooden white and green Cave Johnson era ones. Probably the last of the chambers that where in action when it was run by humans. Glados mentions how she was making the redirection cubes during the events of Portal 1, it's possible that she was working on overhauling the facility as a whole during that time too. So the white and black Portal 2 style chambers were Glados's own improved design since the facility as a whole seems a lot more advanced in Portal 2 compared to Portal 1: Faster elevators, streamlined cube droppers, color-changing lights on the cubes ect.
** The facility explored in Portal 1 and early in Portal 2 are the 90s facility, a static but semi-modular structure built on top of the old tunnels and directly linked to the surface as a basement level. In the 2000s, GLaDOS began to build her own facility in a concentric pattern around the 90s facility, which is the crazy modular facility from the rest of Portal 2. By the time of Portal 1, the 90s facility is beginning to rust to pieces, but GLaDOS programming forces her to start all testing in the most recent facility built by her human masters - so Chell is forced through 90s facility.

The voice is more human-like, compared to Want You Gone. This worked on assumption Caroline and GLaDOS are separate being. The event of the first Portal is a BatmanGambit by Caroline, to get Chell destroyed the cores (and destroying GLaDOS in the process) because she knew GLaDOS death would be temporary. Once she turned on again, GLaDOS would be free from the cores, and Caroline would be able to influence her instead. For science. She might already influenced GLaDOS since re-activation, and the final kick would be GLaDOS remembering about Caroline.

She might already influenced GLaDOS [=GLaDOS=] since re-activation, and the final kick would be GLaDOS [=GLaDOS=] remembering about Caroline.

*** Maybe that was Wheatley, talking back to "Jerry" in nanobot language. He just repeated what he said normally so you would know what he was saying, since he knew you didn't speak "nanobot". But then, how did he get repaired? Maybe that was a [[spoiler:more-likely-to-go-insane]] clone of Wheatley, that GLaDOS planted there[[spoiler: to make you SUFFER]].

* New theory on the Morality Core: it doesn't speak because it knows that trying to reason with the corrupt GLaDOS is impossible. Instead, it devotes its interests to other, more effective ways of executing its moral decisions--like helping Chell destroy Glados by detaching itself, allowing Glados to use the bombs that help Chell kill her.
** Secondly, I ask you, what color was the morality core? Purple. What color was the bot that dragged Chell back into Aperture Science? [[http://www.thinkwithportals.com/comic/#14 purple]]. Could they be the same? Since the incinerator didn't destroy the Companion Cube, couldn't the morality core have survived as well, and the most ethical thing it could think of was keeping Chell around in case some moron came along and reactivated Glados.

* The Portal 1 cores are actually corrupted by GlaDOS.(GlaDOS was still restrained by the cores both in movement (She struggles more as cores are incinerated.) and her actions(Her personality is different in Portal 2)) A scientist attached all of them like in Portal 2 but without the gel.

** At times he seems to react and act more like a human than a machine [[spoiler: not to mention that the paradox didn't fry him.]] Perhaps they programmed mental blocks in a computer to try to make him react more like a human, and when he came out a little too idiotic they tried to cover it up with the Intelligence Dampening Sphere thing. [[spoiler: If that's what GLaDOS had been told, she wouldn't know she was lying and the whole potato / not enough energy to lie thing would still be true.]] Or the scientists who created him thought "human" was synonymous with "intelligence-dampening."

* An alternate theory: The Space core is actually a hypothesis/anticipation core. Using the processing power available it realized it would eventually wind up in space, and constantly babbled about it, due to it's nature of guessing at the future. This could explain why GLaDOS would have wanted that core, because her goal is stictly science (and Chellicide). On the same note, perhaps she's testing the limits of the human psyche, hence Chell's trials in Aperture. After all "We do what we must, because we can" seems to be her justification.
* The Space Core is actually a corrupted Enthusiasm Core. The scientists thought such an emotion would be useful to the central core for testing purposes. Especially if the core was one of the early ones made to help rather than hinder, i.e. before GLaDOS decided it would be better to kill everyone. While the Enthusiasm Core was attached to GLaDOS she found it a little too exciteable and thus annoying. So she corrupted it by introducing it to a subject in which interesting knowledge, and thus things to get excited about, could potentially never cease - space. It was mentally shoved down the rabbit hole, removed and stored in the corrupt core bin, and became the Space Core we see in-game.

* Ascended. At the very end of Portal 2, before Want You Gone starts playing, Chell walks out of the chamberlock and ends up in a wheat field. In greek mythology, when someone dies, they ascend into heaven, which is depicted as a large wheat field. The same one that Chell ends up in at the end of the game. Not only that, but her best friend comes with her, which is why there's a charred companion cube with her. Chell finally gets some time to relax, GLaDOS sings her song, Wheatley rambles on about how he was wrong to take over Aperture, yadda yadda yadda, happily ever after.
* Dead. She died in space. The whole part where GLaDOS drags her back into the facility and lets her go is all a dying dream. Think about it- She's outside. She's got her beloved Companion Cube. Wouldn't that be heaven?

** I don't know about Cave but the tower opera as stated above pretty much states out right that Caroline was Chell's mother. If Rattman knew this it would explain why he chose Chell as he worked directly with GLaDOS and probably knew Caroline's brain was uploaded into it. Caroline could never kill her own daughter and had enough control over GLaDOS to prevent her doing the same. It would also explain why GLaDOS wanted to keep her in the facility after the Combine attack, it wasn't to testing but protection GLaDOS was interested in. This kind of makes Portal and vary strange coming of age story where Chell has an over protective mother in Portal but eventually proves she can stand on her own two feet and look after her self and is allowed out in Portal 2. If the theories below about her having a leg disability are true then it is both literal and symbolic.

** Cave Johnson? He seems like the sort of man who would want an heir without the bothersome preparation, the testing initiative could simply be GLaDOS's way of finding someone MamaBear enough to protect Aperture's future through the apocalypse.

They didn't know who's kid she was so her last name isn't on file. Eventually, they made her a test subject, or GLaDOS did.

* Chell attached the morality core. Listen to the lyrics of still alive. "Even though you broke my and killed me and throw every piece into a fire." It sounds like "You broke my heart (GlaDOS being Caroline it fits with the next part.) killed me(Figuratively, by attaching mortality or one of the other cores.)than the final battle of portal happen.

* Chell is Caroline. GLaDOS is also Caroline. Caroline wasn't killed when her mind was transferred to GLaDOS, and her body was used in a regenerative or cloning experiment. Thus Chell refuses to talk to GLaDOS because she'd just be talking to herself (and also hates AI's). Chell really does love testing though.

** Seconded with a twist- Caroline and nobody else, and against Cave Johnson's will of having her mind being uploaded into the computer. The neurotoxin part? Either it was pure accident due to her not used to being interfaced to everything and not having limbs anymore, or revenge against the scientists who did this to her, after they refused to or told her that they can't or don't know how to revert her consciousness back into her body. They then countered by installing all those cores that generated the equivalent of "voices" in the human head, driving her genuinely insane. Nevermind that she was already a little off her rocker after working for Cave Johnson all those years. Also, it has already been shown that something else on the network causes all connected main cores to the system to go mad with power, punishes the main core for not testing or helping the test subject (which could cause a result bias), and sending some kind of pleasure signal to the main core for each time the test subject completes a test, a signal with the properties of an illicit drug and the main core will eventually start needing higher doses of to maintain sanity, and withdrawal symptoms include extreme irritability. It would also explain GLaDOS' behavior once her consciousness was put transferred to a microcomputer powered by a potato- since she was disconnected from the grid, she is no longer getting whatever signal on the network that is causing her power madness and desire to test. And since she's no longer in her real core body, she's suddenly free from the withdrawal symptom. And because she no longer has all those other cores messing up her ability to think, she starts thinking clearly and remembering who she really is. Why do you think she responded to the Cave Johnson recording at the same time as the recording of Caroline did when Cave addressed her in the recording?
** ...this is a WMG? I never had the impression that there was an existing "self" in GLaDOS before Caroline was uploaded. There are some things programmed into the mainframe, like the euphoric response to testing, but that alone does not an AI make. The ''-DOS'' is the hardware. The AI comes from the ''GL-'' (and really is therefore actual rather than artificial intelligence).

[[WMG: Wheatley is [[spoiler: genuinely sorry for the events of Portal 2]]]]
* Both Wheatley and GlaDOS dramatically change [[spoiler: when they are either removed or attached to the mainframe.]] The inherent corruption of the mainframe is what [[spoiler: brings out the worst in them. They are essentially driven mad by the process. Meanwhile when they are removed they aren't obsessed with the Testing Initiative.]] Chances are it's the mainframe messing everything up, not the cores.
