The Orchestrator and the Nature of the Game
The Orchestrator is Prosecution's father.Search your feelings...you know it to be true.
The Orchestrator is a Time LordBecause it's mandatory for at least one character to be one in every WMG.
The Orchestrator is actually The Big Good.He's just pretending to be The Big Bad.
All of this is Non-canon.Nothing actually happens to the players in their own universes if they die. It's the only way that absolutely nothing could go amiss without them if they played an important role before the game.
The Orchestrator/John is actually Zee Tee.
There is no such thing as "Execution", Prosecution's Superpowered Evil Side. Rather...The evil text font is possessed and causes whichever character is using it to temporarily go crazy. So, in theory, the font is EVERYONE'S Superpowered Evil Side. If the above guess about Gear being influenced by GLaDOS is true, we're all fucked if he starts using the font. We can expect him to flood the vicinity with deadly neurotoxins.
Dolphin had a role in a musical or opera before getting yoinked into the Game.All of those times he ends up humming his leitmotif or starts singing, he's subconsciously doing this thanks to the hours and hours of vocal practice he had to do for said musical.
Dolphin was training to be a conductor prior to The Game.Why else would he have a conductor's baton instead of some other sticks as concentrator?
Everyone in The Game is at one point, shady.At least it was shown to be true for Key, Tyke and Tick.
Prossy/Alex Mandal has some sort of bizarre hatred for buildingsWell, he's blown up three already. And apparently blowing up their own buildings is him and his sister's definition of "anger management".
Relating to valve games.
Later on, Prossy's company, or a branch thereof, becomes Aperture Science, while Rosa's, which she will be revealed to have (That's another WMG), becomes Black Mesa.Prossy's power was to make portals. Think carefully... what does that remind you of? In short, the Portal Gun. Rosa, on the other hand, can move objects about and fire them at high speeds... just like... the Gravity Gun! Coincidence? I think NOT!
The Orchestra is a multi-dimensional organization whose membership includes, among others, John, Doctor Who, and The G-Man, that loves to bring two universes together... and see which one dies!John, however, is a compassionate Orchestrator and genuinely cares about his universe and its occupants, and these games are his way of training them! Prossy is destined to get the portal gun from Chell and help to keep the resistance alive in the age of the Combine!
Gear is The CakeIt is a well known fact Gear lies. And it is even more well known that The Cake Is a Lie. Thus, Gear is The Cake. Perfect logic. Alternatively...
Gear is the son of Caroline, The woman who became GLaDOS.... Rather than being an imaginary cake, Gear's mother was the basis of GLaDOS' personality. Caroline would bring her son to work with her throughout his childhood. GLaDOS, having his mother's personality, "felt" a sort of maternal instinct for him and spent a lot of time with him After the whole Brain Uploading thing. Gear, being young and impressionable, ended up picking up some of GLaDOS' lying liar ways. As he aged, this habit of lying would develop, but he could never do it quite as well as that AI. Then he ended up here. Being involved with Aperture Science would also lend itself to Gear's theory that they were all selected for the specific reason of being unusual. ... Stop looking at me like that.
