Sucking up to Cal, Mr. "I wanna help maintain law and order any way I can". Up to and including trying to murder his own sister.

* Hawk is Cal's son, not Eddie's, by Sarah. Many fan reviewers have speculated this. His mid-Season 2 haircut and outfits, plus the fact he becomes interim leader of the city center, play this up.
* Sarah is Kodiak's daughter, not Hank's, by Gaby. Again, this turns up in some fan reviews. They did have an affair, so it's possible.
* The community is going to be burned to the ground. Kodiak seems to predict this, and there's a visual of a burning house in the opening credits. If so, there go all the tapes. It'll be restored in some way since there's a prediction that Eddie will do that.
* Hawk is going to die, perhaps as Jason Kemp did. Fans who speculate this point to the scene in "The Miracle" where Hawk is seen walking away in a slow, blurry fade, and later taking his Meyerist vows. At the same time, his father Eddie has a vision of a dead hawk, then in Peru finds an actual dead hawk -- Silas' pet, which apparently [[spoiler: died when he did]].

It is inescapable by ordinary means, looping infinitely in all directions, and offers those within what they (think they) most desire. Of course, if they're foolish enough to accept its offer, explicitly or subconsciously (by encountering the wolf), the forest stops wasting effort pretending to be anything other than a twisted EldritchAbomination / EldritchLocation. It will continue doing this until it attempts to take the mind of someone with enough willpower to refuse its offer and destroy it. [[NoMoreHeroes Maybe an Irish assassin or something.]]

** This theory would actually explain why in all their live journals, the girls mention that there was a sudden unexplained social gathering full of guests, family friends, and people they have never even met before. They were bringing gifts and seemed very interested in the girls well being, and no one explained just what was going on.

[[WMG: Scarlet's Wolf represented carelessness]]
I have to admit this theory isn't mine - I just saw it on the internet and thought it so brilliant I just had to share it here. Judging by her description on the website, her monologues and the way she interacts with her sisters on livejournal, it is very obvious that Scarlet's life is defined by duty. Being the oldest of many sisters who may not have always had a mother to take care of them, Scarlet always had to be the responsible one, and while she never faltered in her duties, it is clear that at least on some level she isn't fully satisfied with her role. Hers is a life of one menial chore after another, watching her sisters playing and having fun while she stays behind to do the laundry and clean the house - but what she really wanted was to create art. To make music. In the game, too, Scarlet has an obligation: she was told to head over to grandma's to bring her food (and perhaps, by extension, help her around some). Now, we know that the Wolves all represent temptations, but in Scarlet's case, that temptation might not have been a man or an exciting experience of some sort: it was the temptation of letting go. Of sitting down, just for a little, little while, for a quiet few hours of well deserved time for herself, doing the things ''she'' likes. So she plays music on the piano and has a great time for the first time in so long, not realizing that time has passed... and by the time she makes it to grandma's, the house looks like somebody's died in it. It's been picked clean and the furniture are covered like the place is about to be sold. ''Scarlet ignored her duties, preferring, instead, to selfishly enjoy herself - and it cost her dearly''. Grandma ''needed'' Scarlet to take care of her. Maybe she needed a medicine she couldn't reach for herself. Maybe she had a stroke or a heart attack and no one was around to provide assistance. Each of the girls learns a lesson about growing up from her Wolf: Scarlet's lesson is that being grown up means that you have to accept your duties, and that the consequences of ignoring them can be grim indeed.

** I always got the impression that the girl in white was afraid of the grandmother. She'll lead you along the correct path, but even if you walk the whole path with her, she won't (or can't) go into the house. The only time she does is when you play as her in the epilogue, and there is no wolf in the woods, so it's safe to assume that the grandmother is her "wolf". So, um, I'm not sure what this brings to your interpretation, but I just thought I'd share.

So I've seen a lot of varying interpretations of what each chapter means, but not a whole lot of speculation on Robin's chapter. I initially didn't spend a whole lot of time thinking about Robin as on the surface it seems like a fairly straightforward interpretation of the little red riding hood plot, and that Robin was in fact killed by a wolf/werewolf. The other possibility that occurred to me was that she fell into an open grave and died while playing around the graveyard. Notice that she will play in the dirt in the open grave before she encounters the wolf, and says something about how she loves playing in dirt. In that scene she will crawl out of the grave, but suppose she fell into a very deep grave and couldn't get out again? Kind of a grim interpretation, I know.

** It would explain why she bares a resemblance to EmilyDickinson
** I really like this interpretation. However, the white sheets in the grandmother's house, to me, seemed to imply a world where there was no art. Maybe all of Scarlet's responsibilities meant she had no time for music or art anymore, and she felt stifled because of it. Also, what do you make of her wolf? Some of her thoughts indicated that she longed for some kind of personal connection. She wanted to find someone who would understand her because she felt lonely, and that's what I think her wolf is meant to represent.
*** I have two ideas about her Wolf: One, her Wolf is meant to be a mentor or teacher, someone she could look up to and who could guide her along her chosen path. Two, her Wolf is meant to be someone who shared her love of music and art, someone she could fall for and who would fall for her.
** I so agree with this interpretation. And as I always thought that grandmother's house could represent the soul or the inside of each sister, it would add up with Scarlet's house being empty, and the thousands of books and the instruments representing her wish to compensate for her emotional emptiness.
** I interpretated that Scarlet had committed suicide somehow. "Art is where the nobility of humanity is expressed. I could not live on a world without it." In her Grandmother's house when the instruments and herself rise up there's the distinct sound of something being sharpened. Perhaps symbolic of turning herself into an artistic instrument. Maybe she had herself killed on stage or as a part of an art piece since she couldn't make any art herself.

I know what you're going to say. She helps the girls back to the path! She's kind and helpful... isn't that how the original story Wolf seemed to Red? If you don't stop moving to interact, she'll lead you on a wild goose chase through the forest. I've actually had her lead me -to- a wolf once or twice. Even if she doesn't, she is always there when the girls approach their Wolves. Once they're all out of the way, she's off to Grandma's house. At the end of the game, there's the GIW... covered in blood... as the girls walk in, one by one.

However, she can only help them by either leading them back to the path, or helping them find what they are really looking for inside the forest, namely the wolf. After either taking them back to the path, or showing them where the wolf is, she quietly steps back and lets the girl decide for themselves what they'll do next, as she has no power to actually stop them. It is up to them to choose their path.
