Mr. E is...?
As of episode 21, his identity has been revealed. But here's what's been speculated (and jossed) since the show began:
Mr. E is the Riddler.
Mr. E is Vincent van Ghoul.In this continuity, he's a stealth mentor advising the gang from afar, preparing the gang for real ghosts and monsters.
There's only one person who could possibly be Mr. E, and that's......RED HERRING!
Mr. E is Velma's twin sister.
When Mr. E is unmasked, he/she will say the "You meddling kids" line in its entirety.
Mr. E is Sheriff Bronson Stone.He secretly wants to expose the truth about the locket and Crystal Cove's secrets, but can't investigate too much on his own because of his position — he could wind up losing his job, or worse. However, he's seen that the meddling kids are actually pretty resourceful and good at ferreting out secrets, so he's acting as an extremely deep-cover Stealth Mentor, publicly disapproving of their actions while secretly manipulating them as Mr. E, goading them on to learn the truth.
Angel is Mister E.She could just be using a voice changer... Thing. She acts suspicious enough.
Mr. E is Professor Pericles.He seems to have been the Team Pet for the original Mystery Inc. like Scooby is for the gang. A counterpart to the title character is just too big to get a minor role.
Mr. E is Scrappy-DooThis explains both why Mr. E is helping them and why he's not showing his face.
Mr. E is Mister EThe DC Comics character, also owned by Warner Bros.. He's a mystical mentor who sends others to deal with the supernatural for him. And he's a jerk. Kinda like Van Ghoul. He might even be the villain in the Batman crossover.
Mr. E is Charlie ChanAnd is using his daughter Susie as a messenger/spy, which is why she keeps popping up in the background. Charlie Chan is trying to solve the mystery of Crystal Cove as well, but the town has him blacklisted for fear he'll disrupt the revenue stream.
Mr. E is Freddy's Dad.Think about it, he is trying all he can to stop the mystery gang from running the monster tourist business in Crystal Cove, it wouldn't be surprising if he goes against his own son.
Mr. E is Harbinger.He was able to talk to the gang through a radio. It explains how whenever the gang needs a clue he managASSUMING DIRECT CONTROL!
The Don Knotts look-a-like is Mr. E.He appears in episode 1 and 9 as far as I noticed. He's not a Shout-Out, but an Early-Bird Cameo.
Candlejack is Mr. E.In episode eight, Candlejack appears at the fair. He even leaves behind the next clue from Mr. E. Now we know what happened to the original Mys
Mr. E is Light Yagami.With the villains caught, he kills them by putting their names in the Death Note.
Mr. E is Lelouch.The main reason why some characters are becoming the monsters is because he has used his Geass on them. On the top of that, he may be the Phantom, not Fantzee Pantz. It turns out that he kidnapped Daphne in order to get Fred to say that he didn't have feelings for her, and once that is done, Lelouch uses his Geass on Daphne and that would explain on how she becomes Crush.
Mr. E is Scooby Dumb
Mr. E is Scooby Doo.The show runners insist that nobody on Earth is going to see the plot twist in Episode Twenty-Six coming; what better surprise would there be than to have the dopey Team Pet stand revealed as the gang's Trickster Mentor as he complains about how the meddling kids actually thought his second-rate impersonation of George Jetson's dog was his normal speaking voice.
Mr. E is Lewis BlackHe's annoyed he constantly has to provide the gang with hints, and swears profusely after he hangs up on them.
Mr. E is one of Daphne's siblings.Which is the real reason why they were all shown while their parents talked about how proud they were of all of them and asked why Daphne couldn't live up to their example. Turns out one of them went through their own 'difficult' phase of seeking inconvenient answers, and has just gotten smarter about it. Thanks to their family's wealth, she has the resources to hire any help she might need to help her baby sis and her friends finally ferret out the truth of Crystal Cove's curse... something she once sought herself, but was forced to abandon because she didn't have any True Companions to help her deal with parental disapproval and meddling.
Mr. E is Freddy's Mom.She couldn't get custody of Fred because his father wanted to keep him around for photo ops and to groom him into his successor (regardless of what Freddy wants to do with his life). She became Mr. E to get revenge by exposing Crystal Cove's secrets — and her husband's dirty dealings — to the world, as well as help Fred take charge of his life and finally escape his father's damning influence.
Mr. E is a Time Lord.What....?
Mr. E is the Original Mystery Inc... sans Cassidy Williams and Professor Pericles.Mr. E is a collective alias they are using. They somehow escaped their fates at the hands of the "curse" and are trying to keep the Gang from succumbing to it. The reason Cassidy Williams was torn out of the first picture the gang recieved was because she isn't with them for some reason, probably because she's either dead or estranged, and Pericles was locked up in the asylum.
Mr. E is a ghost.He died as a result of the Crystal Cove Curse, he provides clues to Mystery Inc in hopes that they can lift the curse and allow him to move on. He is invisible and only has limited corporeal abilities, hence the need for the limo driver to perform certain face to face tasks. When he has the messages sent to Mystery Inc, it isn't really a recording, but he is actually speaking to them directly, but nearby invisibly. He slipped up in ep 09 by talking back to the gang while they were playing the recording. In fact, he was in the van with them the whole time.
Mr. E is an Autobot.Back when the original Mystery Incorporated fell victim to the "curse", they were observed by a Cybertronian who resented how the humans in Crystal Cove didn't react and vowed to avenge them; he waited until a new group of meddling kids arose and has been guiding them in secret. What they don't know is that their van is actually their mentor; when the curse looks like it might consume them like it did their predecessors, the Mystery Machine will transform and light the gang's darkest hour.
Mister E is a Plumber and is testing the kids for true training or trying to solve the mystery of what happened to Crystal Cove's last batchScooby is part or full alien, which we know is quite possible in the Scooby-Verse (SD and the Alien Invaders anyone?) which is why he can talk as he does. Normal dogs don't have the right vocal cords. But he probably doesn't know it. Whether the rest of the gang are halfas or not remains to be seen(But Mrs. Blake reminds me a lot of Verdona). It could be that the original Mystery Inc. was another batch of Plumbers-to-be that had stumbled onto something big but nobody believed them ("I swear! Aliens are invading Earth" "Yeah right kids.") and had to take matters into their own hands but weren't skilled enough or powerful enough. That Parrot is too smart for a parrot, the most a parrot has ever learned is somewhere near 250 words and it was an African Grey Parrot and it certainly never spoke in complete, complex sentences or with an accent. It's at least part alien. The reason why they haven't sent the Bellwood trio to sort things out is that Ben, and by extension Gwen, Kevin, and even Max, can't even take a pee without it being a national headline. There'd be a media storm on poor Crystal Cove and the criminals would flee. Angel Dynamite is a Plumber undercover, using a ID mask, to observe and record Mystery Inc. II's progress and methods and deliver clues as they are found. Or it could be just a big simulation, the gang unknowing, to test their resourcefulness, morality, and teamwork. As to what or who Mister E, is it's probably not anyone we've met (except maybe that Frog-Guy Plumber) because, as above, anyone we already know can't move an inch without everyone watching... The costumes of the criminals are starting to resemble aliens we know anyways. Episode one: Goop Episode seven: The Phantom resembles Six-Six on a really bad day. Episode eleven: The Lovecraftian monster looks like a petite female version of Vilgax More to Come. That's my WMG. Cross examination can begin!
Mr. E is a guy named Mr. E.Someone stole his identity and is using it to give the gang hints, while the real Mr. E is busy trying to file a stolen identity report at the police station. Hasn't gone well for him so far.
Mr. E is the Sealed Evil in a Can.Every thirty years or so he gets the opportunity to contact a group to try and get them to release him. After being released, the only way to reseal him is for somebody to sacrifice their sanity. The previous person each time leads the next group to releasing the Sealed Evil in a Can. The only way to break the cycle is for the sacrifice to die. The Gatorsburg sign was right, and Scooby will make this decision after deciding he wants Velma and Shaggy to be together.
Mr. E is not Mr. EThe tape/radio/voice Mr. E and the note planting Mr.E are too different people. The first,either the Mayor or Sheriff, the second, one of Shaggy's parents.
Mr. E is the guy who claims to be his associateEd Machine, the man who bailed "Alice May" out of jail, etc., is only pretending to work under orders from Mr. E. Actually, he is doing it all himself. As the CEO of Destroido, he has plenty of resources to devote to this project. Since he's a greedy jerk who puts landfill waste in snack chips, his motive must be bad — like getting the haunted treasure for himself. He got a message into a bag of Nature Slivers for Shaggy overnight — this is rather fast if he's just a middleman. And the "E" in "Mr. E" could be "Ed".
Mr. E is Angie Dinkley and Angel Dynamite working togetherNote how the initials match. The second name is obviously a stage-name, chosen to match the first. They could both be relatives of the missing kids (Angie has a family resemblance to Clive, and Angel has a resemblance to Cassidy). This makes the first phone call easy to explain (it's Angie with a voice-changer). Angel has a picture of an amazon huntress with a tiger partner. She and her partner Angie are hunting the people who made their relatives disappear. Tigers have stripes in their fur, and Angie has a stripe in her hair.
The final season will involve the current Mystery Inc., the past Mystery Inc., Mr. E and Professor Pericles all forming an Enemy Mine against Mayor Fred Jones Sr.
Fred Jones Sr was in the original Mystery IncHe's the one on the picture locket who looks like Fred. Watch his reaction to seeing the locket in the first episode. He's also the 'close one' Fred was warned about. Whatever happened the first time around, he's trying to stop it happening again.
Crystal Cove is InnsmouthIn that it's a gateway to the paranormal realms where the Chaotic monsters described by HP Lovecraft reside. The town of Crystal Cove has a dark history of burying this and their human sacrifices to seal the portals so that the evil would stay locked away. But now, Fred and company are unraveling mystery after mystery, getting closer to finding out that they can open a portal to one of the world and let out an Old One. The reason Mr. E is sending them these mysteries? So that they'll think everything is rational, so when dealt with the real chaotic monsters, they will be totally unprepared for what comes and doom the town. Why? Mr. E is a cultist and is trying to awaken the Old Ones.
The locket is a Red Herring.Perhaps not initially planted as one, but the parents seemed to recognize it. Afterwards, they placed a call that was sure to get the kids' attention, using an inconsequential puzzle to keep them distracted from meddling.
The gang are the reincarnation of the family that disappeared in the past.Fred and Daphne were the parents, Shaggy and Velma were the children (or one of them was the son/daughter and the other was a spouse/lover), Scooby was obviously the dog. The only reason for anything like this is the brief look at the locket showed a resemblance to Daphne (I think) and why else would the family be mentioned if they weren't important. (I just came up with this as I was walking my dog so it could be complete nonsense).
Crystal Cove and the people in it are a result of a wish. It's actually Sunnydale, and the Scoobies are the Scoobies.
Mr. E is trying to ruin Crystal Cove's economyBy sending the Scooby gang out to different towns with mysteries that are ruining said towns tourism business. Once the mysteries are solved, tourists go there instead of Crystal Cove
The parents, or at least the respective genders, were just like the gang before.Their parents traits were very clearly passed down.
Scooby knows Shaggy is dating VelmaHe quite clearly says he won't tell Velma in EP. 4
There are No Sparks between Fred's parents.They may or may not be divorced — that would look bad on his father's resume, so they may be estranged and still together, despite the lack or death of sparks. This is directly related to Fred's naivete about relationships — he grew up seeing this coldness as normal. Hence the line "Try not to act so happy, Daphne! Remember, we're married."
The climax of Season 1 is going to a two-part episode — which both team switch time periods — the past in the present and the present in the past — though they do solve their mysteryIt would give a pretty good closer to the big mystery.
Part of Crystal Cove's Dark Secret is how they abandoned the original Mystery Inc. in their time of need.When the original Mystery Inc. needed help the most, nobody was willing to help them, some because they didn't believe them while others ignored or dismissed it. This led to Mystery Inc having to stand alone against the threat in a huge Final Battle, leading to their disappearances and apparent Heroic Sacrifice. The final showdown involved enough pyrotechnics and whatnot that it drew attention from the media, government and others; rather than explain what happened, the residents of Crystal Cove pretended it was all a big show. They then began building upon this reputation, expanding it into their main source of commerce.
The new Mystery Inc will end up traveling outside of Crystal Cove for a season or two, before returning for the Grand Finale of the original plot arc.After discovering the above or some other Awful Truth, Fred is so shocked that he confronts his father with the evidence of what they've learned so far, demanding to know how anyone could try to turn tragedy into profit. Dissatisfied by his father's selfish reply (something along the line of 'making the best of things' and not wanting to rock the boat so he can keep getting elected), he decides to leave town, with the rest of the gang tagging along. They then spend some time driving from place to place, solving mysteries and working on other subplots, before being called back to Crystal Cove: all of the demons buried in the town's past (metaphorical or otherwise) are rearing their ugly heads all at once, and they must return, discover and expose the truth before the cove becomes a Doomed Hometown.
Angel is related to one of the missing members of the original Mystery Inc.She, along with other relatives of the missing, is working with Mister E to expose the truth about what happened to her loved ones. (Mister E may be a false name all of them are sharing, or Pericles coordinating the whole affair.) After all, the authorities can't be trusted to do anything...
Fred was a Feral Child.His obsession with traps stems from his earlier years, when they were his main method of procuring resources from animals, and his denseness stems from the fact that he had little to no contact with human life before somebody came and took him back home to civilization.
The whole thing is a conspiracy to attract more tourists......And everyone in town (except the kids) are in to it. This explains why the sheriff isn't that worried about investigating crimes, and why the kids' parents are so casual about their adventures. The series ends with everyone laughing at the kids for not figuring it out sooner.
Scooby Doo is a Cylon.Prof. Pericles' was circled in the picture Velma receives from Mr. E along with a note that says All of this has happened before...
Velma is going to vanish while investigating Mr. E on her own.This doesn't particularly mean anything bad is going to happen to her, per se... Just that she'll start to pursue a lead on her own and mysteriously disappear in some way that directly evokes whatever happened to the original Mystery Inc. This will prove a vital testing point for the Adults Are Useless issue; obviously at least some of them have been withholding information, and such a blatant reminder of what happened before may cause somebody to crack and make a small-but-important slip, giving the other members a clue that will prove vital to solving the mystery. (In fact, this could be a Batman Gambit on Velma's part, or due to some special instructions given to her by Mr. E...)
Scooby will die.The Drowsy Gator's sign is foreshadowing.
Velma will adopt a puppy to make Shaggy jealousThis puppy will be Scrappy Doo. Unfortunately, she and everyone else will quickly become annoyed by him. Velma will give him to another family by the end of the episode.
The parents ARE the "Curse of Crystal Cove."When you remember that glad-handing creep Mayor Jones is probably divorced and has sole custody of Fred, Daphne's parents are half-insane, the Dinkleys either don't notice or don't care how frustrating Velma finds being a shill and the Rogerses seem to have left the trivial chore of raising their son to a talking dog, it seems obvious that having to be hucksters on the scale the adults of Crystal Cove are tends to eat away at one's integrity and peace of mind; this means that teenagers (such as the original Mystery Incorporated) have the option of staying in town and becoming revolting, messed-up jerks in their own right or leaving and never looking back. The parents would have gotten away with turning the gang into the next generation of smug grifters but Mr. E. is meddling with the kids by getting them to "solve" a pedestrian non-mystery concerning a group of teenagers who skipped a town they loathed out of disgust; this, of course, will lead to Fred and the others doing likewise for the same reason.
Johan Liebert is responsible for making Daphne into Crush.It turns out that he hired the Phantom into capturing Daphne in order to make Fred wish that he didn't have feelings for her. Because of that, his plan worked and she becomes Crush. However, Johan plans on having her killed once ruining Fred through her is finished. That's why he ordered the Phantom to get her after her song, Trap of Love, so that he can kill her without Fred knowing that he planned all this. However, after the Phantom is caught, Johan plans to kill Fred and Daphne by himself with his gun, but ends up getting arrested by the sheriff.
Mystery Inc. will be forced to run a mystery-solving tour.The Mayor and Velma's parents are both explicitly shown to be masters at exploiting the Monster of the Week to their own ends. But with Mystery Inc. doing so well solving those crimes before they can finish milking them, they're going to have to... adapt. So they surprise the gang by telling them they'll actually approve of their mystery-solving shenanigans — if they take along a paying customer or two, turning it into an exciting and super-exclusive adventure tour. Naturally, the customer/s will turn out to be more trouble than they're worth. The gang will be stuck dealing with some stranger who's a complete Parody Sue/The Load/Tagalong Kid/Insert Rule of Funny Trope of Choice here. The notion of a mystery-solving tour probably won't survive past its introductory phase, though you never know...
One of Daphne's siblings will be Girl In A Monster Suit Of The Week.Classic Chekhov's Gunman situation. While Daphne's parents have compared her in passing to her "more successful siblings", that conflict hasn't been given as much attention as Freddy butting heads with his Mayor father or Velma's parents forcing her to shill. Having Daphne unmask one of her siblings would give her a serious shock and bring those issues surging to the forefront.
At some point, the gang will find themselves...In another town. Literally. The majority of locals treat them normally. But some of the locals, especially older longterm ones say things like "You think that's funny?" and "You should be ashamed" and various other outraged comments. Then they run into a man in his sixties,who says something like "Fred? Velma? Daphne?" and then starts yelling that he saw them die and a few more crazy sounding comments. Then he calms down and shows them a forty year old picture of people who look exactly like them And then the graves.
All the former monsters will be gathered to form a mega-monster.Much like Watchmen, Ozymandius' plot could be adapted to fit with the evil all along Mr. E (if he really is evil) to do something like improve tourism of crystal cove once and for all.
Fred's mom is a master criminalShe had a fling with his dad and left Fred on his doorstop. Fred loves traps so much because subconsciously he wants to capture his mother and bring her home.
The original Mystery Incorporated was seemingly betrayed by one of their own.The Big Bad took advantage of the group already suffering trust issues, waited for them to split up while investigating a mystery in a conveniently isolated place, and proceeded to Divide and Conquer.
Sheriff Stone had other reasons to meet with Daphne's mother that night.Calling her a suspected vampire was just his way of deflecting suspicion. As to the actual reason why... a few possibilities spring to mind:
Several — but not all — of the parents secretly support Mystery Inc.That Contrived Coincidence that opened Ep 12? Not so coincidental.
Mr. E has Superman on retainer.We already know that Scooby Doo exists in the Batman: Brave and the Bold universe, and someone had to move that engine.
Crystal Cove is actually Derry, MaineThink about it. All the adults are trying to cover up something mysterious, all the animals have gone mad, kids keep disappearing every few decades...
Crystal Cove is actually a post Depopulation Bomb New York City.Since NYC is the only place (in the USA) where the Mayor is the Sheriff's boss.
Crystal Cove was previously known as Candle CoveYOU HAVE TO GO INSIDE.
Angie Dinkley is the sister of Brad Chiles, one of the missing kids of the old Mystery Inc.He's got her freckles, hair streak, and dimpled chin. Since she's lived in Cape Cod and is now back in town running a mystery tourist museum, she must have come to town to try to find information about her missing brother. She may be working with Mr. E (or even be Mr. E).
Ed Machine is a robot.For a CEO, he's very submissive to the will of Mr. E., even guarding his lair at night. He seems to have shrugged off the cicada attack with no physical or emotional damage, and no hospital visit that we know of. And there's that last name of his...
Fred's offer in episode 24 wasn't what it appeared to be.Fred isn't given to creative metaphors. Maybe his offer was a literal one about Mystery Machine seating arrangements and not a proposal to Daphne. His comment when asked for a delay until graduation: "I don't know what that is. But sure," gives it away.
Brad Chiles is Franklin Fruitmeir, and Judy Reeves is a waitress working with him.Clues: Fruitmeir is always in a clown disguise, and he has no known past. The locket was found underground near his store, near barrels of the stuff he makes his dessert with. There is a waitress in the first episode with a strong resemblance to the picture of Fred's Mom. She is heavily made up (almost clown-like), so she is Judy in disguise. The "Don Knotts" look-alike appears right near her, a possible hint that she too will show up again. When the connection between Fruitmier's and the Slime Mutant was made, the place suddenly needed new servers. That may be because Judy could no longer safely work there, with an investigation so close.
Alice May is Fred's mom.You see, we never saw her real face. She has one mask that makes her look monstrous, the "Ghost Mask." The other is her youthful "Alice May" mask. She can put them on in either order (as we saw in the cold opening vs. the ending of "The Legend of Alice May"). Fred was instantly attracted to her because subconsciously he was reminded of his missing mother. What was it Ethan said? "Somebody's mom is trying to kill Fred." She had no intention of harming Fred, of course. The purpose of the plot was to get the yearbook to the gang, so she was willing to do Mr. E's bidding.
Mayor Jones is The Freak.If you think about it carefully, it makes sense.
Pericles betrayal to Ricky.
The Freak of Crystal Cove is going to be revealed to be Judy ReevesSince The Freak looks like a male ghost girl with a unicorn horn and we don't know where Judy fits in the scheme of things in the original Mystery Inc. I decided that Judy must be a smarter female version of Shaggy and was getting bored of getting caught up in Mystery Inc.'s mystery. So she make a secret hideout underneath a unexplored part of the caverns underneath Crystal Cove, and created a puppet with a tape record. Next, she took her dad's trench coat and started sneaky around the old Spanish church — to bait Brad. Everyone agreed expect on — Professor Pericles. Upset with him and with him damaging the disc — she called Harry in exchange for not telling his boss about his stealing of money from his circus, he gives Professor Pericles a criminal genius mind. After, she send letter to ring master, exposing Harry. She hired Harry to she give Mayor Jones into believing only goals: get the mayor job in Crystal Cove and that he wants a lot of money from tourism. Still having Brad's DNA from blood from caper during a fake vampire, she created Freddie Jones from her and Brad's DNA — using her own body as the womb. After she recovered from the birth — she left town. She returned to see Mayor Jones and Sheriff Stone looking at locket. She recognized it as her own locket — so she returned to her Freak Control center — and became the Freak to keep the town under watch - but when Obliteratrix showed up. She know she was going to be "hot water" — lucky, she had decode who was who. Brad Chiles as H.P. Hatecraft; Cassidy Williams as Angel Dynamite, and Ricky Owens as Even Eviler (Mr. E.). But when Cassidy tried to get Freddie's gang to stop, she knew she had to try to spook them — but as usual, she ended up in one of Freddie's traps. Shaggy remarks, "This fits in with Professor Pericles' warning. Beware of those who are close to you."
Judy Reeves married Fred Jones. Sr, but he wasn't a member of the original Mystery IncorporatedSince Mayor Jones doesn't exactly resemble Brad Chiles, but Fred's mother does resemble Judy Reeves, there is the possibility that Jones did indeed marry Judy but he wasn't part of Mystery Inc.. In Angel's flashback in episode 25, Mystery Inc. had brought the map they found at the church to someone to help them analyze it. We weren't shown his face, but his hair did resemble Mayor Jones'. Mayor Jones could be related to the person who helped analyze the map, possibly a classmate of Mystery Inc., and he learned about the treasure. But Mystery Inc. fled Crystal Cove, so he couldn't do anything about it since they had all the necessary pieces towards finding it. Years later, Judy Reeves came back to Crystal Cove under a different identity. Mayor Jones secretly figured out it was her, got her to marry him, and somewhere along the line they had Fred. He then grilled Judy for information on the treasure, and through her he stole the piece of the Planespheric disc from Professor Pericles. The Freak discovered that Judy had returned, and Judy was forced to flee Crystal Cove again, leaving Fred behind with her husband. There's also the possibility that the Freak attacked both of them, but Jones left Judy behind as he fled, and because of that he kept his piece of the disc under lock and key for so long, fearing the Freak would come after him like he did Judy.
The "Don Knotts" look-alike is the Freak of Crystal Cove.He has the wiry build for it, including the scrawny neck. The actor was in the old series The New Scooby-Doo Movies, so the character is appropriately old. His mild manner is just an act, so that nobody will suspect him. He's more than a tourist — would a tourist be asked to bring items onstage for a charity auction?
Scooby will get Velma to save him form the farm, and they'll bond while trying to reunite the rest of the teamVelma is the only one not going anywhere (Fred, Shaggy, Scooby) or overly depressed (Daphne). Also, her parents seem the most understanding out of all of them. Scooby will contact her and she will get him from the farm, (the owners will be sympathetic to the whole thing). Then the following will occur:
Mayor Jones is actually in a secret relationship with Sheriff Stone
The 'farm' that Scooby is going to be sent to is Quest Laboratories.
Mr. E is not Ricky, in spite of what he might claim.
Scooby-Dum will be on the farm where Scooby is being sentHim or Scrappy. Maybe even both.
Scooby will have an another All Just a Dream episode at the beginning of the second season.He will be dreaming horrific And I Must Scream fates for the gang:
the show will end up being "hijacked by ganon" during the 2nd season finaleOr rather hijacked by Scrappy. I know the season hasn't even started yet but hey, might as well get a few predictions in. The plot is already far fetched enough and episode 20 did hint that something terrible happened that made them decided to never talk about him again. We don't know what he did but perhaps it was foreshadowing that Scrappy will indeed be written into the plot and hijack the plot with the gang spending the 3rd season dealing with him.
Season 2 will feature a Marble Hornets parodyOK, so the season finale was a big dropped a BIG emotion bomb, but hey, it can't stay serious forever, can it? Wouldn't it be awesome to have Scooby and the gang chased around by a Slenderman Expy?
The Freak of "Pawn of Shadows" and the Freak of "All Fear the Freak" are not the same.Think about it. In Pawn of Shadows, the original Mystery Incorporated is led to the old church by the Freak, presumably so that they would find the scroll - meaning that the Freak knew it was there, and that it wanted them to find it. In All Fear the Freak, the Mayor claimed that he disguised himself as the Freak in order to search for the Planospheric Disc, but he found nothing. It was through the original Mystery Incorproated that he found the scroll, when they came to him with it looking for answers, meaning he didn't know it was in the Spanish church. Also, remember the Freak's little poem from the beginning of Pawn of Shadows? "From six to one, the spell is spun. No time, to run, the curse begun."? There are six pieces of the Planoshperic Disc in total, but only one in the chest underneath the church, and this is clearly referencing that fact. However, Professor Pericles clearly had no idea, and was expecting all six peices to be there in the chest. Keep in mind that, at this point, he'd teamed up with the Mayor in exchange for his information, indicating that the Mayor had no idea, either. Could the Mayor have been withholding information from him? Perhaps, but that would mean that he was disguised as the Freak when he led the original Mystery Incorporated to the church and recited that poem, and that would mean that he knew the location of the scroll, which is clearly not the case. And speaking of the poem, why did the Freak's pattern of speech suddenly change between episodes? In Pawn of Shadows he speaks in rhymes, but in All Fear the Freak he can't even put a sentence together. What gives? And what happened to that sword? As for why there would be two Freaks, after the Mayor was accepted to Darrow University's History Department as a professor, he discovered more about the lost conquistadors. What if the Freak is part of that legend or story or whatever, and served as the inspiration for the Mayor's disguise? The Freak's attire certainly resembles something from the time period of the conquistadors. Also, and this is just my opinion, it's pretty clear that the Mayor is searching for the treasure out of greed, but it seems to me that the Freak in Pawn of Shadows is slowly but deliberately leading others to the treasure. Perhaps those who find the treasure will unleash that curse that will destroy Crystal Cove, and that is the Freak's ultimate goal? After Fred announces that they're going to find the treasure and get to the bottom of everything, the Freak recites his second, and last, poem, "The curse begun, but soon they'll see. The buried truth will end with me.".
The Haunted Treasure is the Fountain of Youth.Think about it. A treasure many have died trying to find, conquistadors, and a treasure beyond calculation. Also, who is not to say the treasure isn't located in Crystal Cove? People think it is however, but it isn't.
Possible season 2 events
Prof. Pericles is the Big Good
Scrappy will play a part in season 2It's possible that the "nice farm" that Scooby gets sent to might be where some of his family lives. The other dogs will be happy to see him back... except for Scrappy, who's a bit bigger now, who'll notice Scooby wants to go back to the gang. Scrappy and Scooby will find a way to break out, then through Scooby's sense of smell, get to Shaggy's millitary school and break him out. On the way back to Crystal Cove, Pericles (or if you want to be really evil, Shaggy's mother) organises a way to ensure this split up continues, but Scrappy does a Heroic Sacrifice to ensure Scooby and Shaggy get back home. If Scrappy manages to continue back to Crystal Cove himself a few episodes later, he's going to confront Fred about trying to be a loner is exactly what Pericles wants.
Ricky Jones is H.P. HatecraftThe character models look VERY similar.
The Dragon's Eye will make an appearanceAn story from the Scooby-Doo comics has a Mineral Macguffin called the Dragon's Eye that has been scattered across the world that the Big Bad wants reassembled to give him an army of the undead to destroy the unworthy. This could be Retconned into "reassembling the Dragon's Eye will yield a Planosheric Disc Piece" that will send the gang and Pericles on an around-the-world chase.
The Planespheric Disk leads to the TRUE Chest of DemonsA previous WMG has theorized that the reason why Flim-Flam got 25-To Life is that he made a HUGE scam based on a fake Chest of Demons. Following it, there is a good chance that Flim-Flam got the idea from an old legend/history about the Chest of Demons and the 13 Ghosts. Which means that the it could be actually real and the Planespheric Disk would lead to it.
Mystery Inc. will be reduced to Scooby, Shaggy and Daphne during the first half of the second season.Which would be some kind of homage to the series of the beginning of the 80's. Scooby will run away from the "nice farm" (which will be the actual opposite of it) and will go to Daphne to help him to "rescue" Shaggy from the military academy. Scooby's determination will help her to break from his depression and after taking Shaggy away from the academy they will reinstate Mystery Incorporated, with Daphne taking leadership. Daphne will refuse to invite Velma back at first since she still feels betrayed but Velma will still help them in some cases and the collaboration will eventually break the ice between them until they make amends and Velma rejoins. Fred will return in that moment but won't rejoin inmediately, rather more like a "client" requesting them to help him to find his parents. He should rejoin around the last episodes once the group finds actual clues about the true fate of Fred's parents and Fred sees that he actually has a "real family".
Alice May will return in season 2.Alice will appear in certain episodes as an ally, giving out clues to the identity of the monster of the week.
Scrappy will be a Woobie, Destroyer of WorldsLike the live action movie, Scrappy will find that his uncle was a coward. This will be given a more serious treatment as Scooby and the gang were the only people who put up with him. Soon all the backlash agaisnt him piles on his psyche and Prof.Pericles uses this to be his personal pawn, as Scrappy is that unused to having someone to love him. Of course this is all false and Scooby and or Fred break him out of this illusion.
The Crybaby Clown is Randy's father from "The Legend of Alice May"Motive: revenge on Crystal Cove and Mystery Inc. for his son's kidnapping. Clue: the presence of Randy's mom at the town meeting. Why was she there? She doesn't live in Crystal Cove (Fred knocked on her door in some other town). Answer: in case the Clown (her husband) needed help.
The conquistadors' treasure will turn out to be worthless or non-existentIt would be delicious comeuppance for Pericles to discover that the treasure for which he betrayed his friends, got scarred, and spent decades in an asylum over was totally worthless.
Brad and Judy are in hiding as...Rick and Marion Spartan.
Mayor Jones was lying...About Brad and Judy being Fred's real parents. Quite frankly, they seem a bit TOO eager to have him accept them. So here's the theory: they figured out Jones Sr. was the Freak who'd threatened them to make them leave town, and kidnapped his young son or nephew to use as leverage against him. He in turn rescued young Fred, and demonstrated just how serious he was about protecting him. Now that he's out of the way, they've come back with the intention of emotionally manipulating Fred, and at a crucial moment, will reveal they aren't really his parents, just to screw with his head. As to why Jones Sr. told Fred that Brad and Judy were his real parents? Guilt, and the fact that he's not quite right in the head at this point. His not quite sane mind figured it was better to have Fred believe the people he took after so much were his family, rather than someone he'd just unmasked as a criminal.
Cassidy Williams isn't dead.Probably not THAT wild a guess, but after episode 37, I'm willing to bet Cassidy somehow survived the destruction of Abigail Gluck's underwater base. After all, they may have found a broken diving helmet, but they Never Found the Body. And as we know, if there ain't a corpse, they ain't dead. (And even then, don't be so sure.)
Nova is The Mole.Scooby mentioned they'd taken her along with the pieces of the disk. But if my theory is right, she's a sentient, talking dog like him, who's just pretending to be a normal dog and is going along with them to keep an eye on the group, so the old Mystery Inc. can track her and follow the gang to the treasure's location. Poor Scooby will be heartbroken if this happens... but the possibility remains.
Brad and Judy will reconcile with Fred again and mean it.They're gonna tell Pericles—in a way allowable for a TV-Y7 rating—to perform an impossible sexual act, getting tired of taking orders from a psychotic parrot.
Brad and Judy lied to Fred about Mayor Jones threatening bodily harm on him.
Mr. E is only pretending to work with Pericles in order to obtain and destroy either the Planispheric Disk or the cursed treasure. Of course, whether he'll succeed or be Out-Gambitted by Pericles remains to be seen...
The reason the animal sidekick turns evil?Its because the universe sees them as a "mistake of nature". It would also explain why there are so few in a world where ghosts have turned out to be real. Somehow it makes them more susceptible to the discs.
Mr. E is only pretending to work with Pericles in order to obtain and destroy either the Planispheric Disk or the cursed treasure. Of course, whether he'll succeed or be Out-Gambitted by Pericles remains to be seen...
What's really going on with the original Mystery Inc.?Bear with me, this gets complicated. Ricky/Mr. E's been planning things for a long time. He deliberately arranged for Brad and Judy to return to Crystal Cove with their infant son, so Fred Jones Sr. would kidnap Fred and raise him on his own. As mystery solving is in the blood (in this case, at least), Ricky knew Fred would eventually follow in the footsteps of his real parents, and form his own gang of mystery solvers. Then, in time, he'd be able to pass the information to the gang that would set them on the trail of the Curse of Crystal Cove, and Fred Jones Sr.'s true identity as their old nemesis. Years later, when he feels the time is right, Ricky recruits someone special to pass the information on to the gang... Alice May, who is REALLY Brad and Judy's daughter, and Fred's twin sister. Jones Sr. never knew about her, so he never suspected a thing. When she went back to prison (after the Obliteratrix mystery), she knew she'd get out again eventually, some time after her parents came to town. And when she does get out, she'll rejoin them and become the fifth member of the original Mystery Inc (taking Cassidy's place), just in time for the final showdown between the two groups over the treasure.
Friar Serra was right. Scooby will dieFriar Serra only said Scooby would die, but he didn't say whether he would die on the side of evil... or on the side of good. Probably, in the Grand Finale, Pericles will try to convince Scooby to join Nibiuru, most likely using a We Can Rule Together speech. Scooby will be tempted, but ultimately decide not to, and, somehow, pull a Taking You with Me Heroic Sacrifice, killing himself and Pericles. Jossed. Scooby would have died if the Entity had possessed him, but it didn't happen - it possessed, and in the process killed, Pericles instead.
The Nibiuru entity was sealed by its own speciesIn many myths, there is a civil war between the gods, in which one plans to destroy humanity, but is opposed by the others. The Nibiuru entity sealed under Crystal Cove wanted to destroy Earth, but was defeated and trapped in a sarcophagus.
The Nibiuru entity is a collective alias used by the Cult of SkaroThe Nibiuru entity sealed under Crystal Cove is actually a collective alias used by the Cult of Skaro, who wanted to destroy Earth, by transporting Skaro into our solar system, but were defeated somehow, presumably by the Time Lords and trapped in a sarcophagus. The disc is some form of Dalek technology, which allows them to reach out to others. When Pericles manages to release them from the sarcophagus and/or helps them create the portal device to transport Skaro, Sec will tell Pericles You Have Outlived Your Usefulness and exterminate him. It also fits an above WMG that Scooby will die in a Heroic Sacrifice, as he will destroy the device being used to teleport Skaro, before it has fully materialised, causing the portal to collapse and form a black hole, destroying Skaro and sucking the Cult and Scooby into it, killing them all in the process, and saving Earth.
Mayor Nettles knows more about the kids' home lives than we think.When she realized what scuzzbags the townsfolk were, she decided to have the families of the Mystery Incorporated kids investigated. Later on in the series, the Rogers and Blake parents, at least, will all be legally declared unfit parents (Velma's parents might get off with just a warning though) by Social Services, and Shaggy and Daphne will be removed from their custody. Their new families will be more like the Rogers and Blake families from the older cartoons. Fred may have the same thing happen to him, or possibly just be emancipated. [[Spoiler:Jossed. It's never said if Mayor Nettles was investigating the parents, but in the end, reality is rewritten, and the parents become much nicer in the new world.]]
Flim-Flam will returnThe Gang will need his skills for something, so they'll have him released from prison. He'll at first hate them for leaving him in there, but as the episode goes on he'll start liking them again.
The Jonny Quest gang will finally make a full appearanceAfter their cameo in season one and Race & Dr. Quest's appearances in the Blue Falcon episode, how could this not happen?!
Alice May is really Gwen StacyThink about it. They look exactly alike, they're both smart and sassy, and although Alice May's story about the Creeper wasn't true, Gwen Stacy went on a similar campaign of revenge for her own father's death against Spider-Man in the comics. And the physical similarity is just too glaring to be an accident. Brick Joke years in the making.
Crystal Cove takes place within Haven, Maine (Stephen King's Tommyknockers).Many of the residents suddenly get the ability to create amazing gadgets out of nowhere and an artefact is increasing their intelligence and affecting their minds. Could also affect the intelligence of animals as well. Could explain why the many people who were previously non-suspects use these inexplicably new gadgets on petty revenge or get-rich-quick schemes.
Dealing with the treasure and the Nibiru aliens won't end the strangeness in Crystal Cove.The series will end when the gang hears word of another monster roaming around. The line "Well gang, looks like we've got another mystery on our hands." will be used, and the final scene will be of them driving off in the Mystery Machine, with Scooby getting in the last word as always.
Scooby Doo is a Plumber tasked with destroying the rogue Annunaki that's spent the last five centuries terrorizing Crystal Cove.Although the gang might not have been all that familiar with the Planispheric Disk before they first started getting mysterious phone calls, that's not to say that Max Tennyson and his fellow Plumbers aren't aware of the situation. The best way they can think of to finally put an end to the problem is to put someone on the inside. Said someone once used the alias 'Wolfie' on an earlier case and is at pains to not get made.
When 'things come undone', Scooby will be left wandering alone in a state park and get rescued by a kid in a green T-shirt.Once the rogue Annunaki is destroyed, history will go back to normal and the site of the town will be the state park it is in the real world. After wandering around loose for a few days, a lost, frightened and hungry Scooby will be discovered by a vacationing county sheriff from a town called 'Coolsville' and his son Norville. The rest is history.
The Annunaki speaking through Nova is the Nibiru entity and the "Heart of the Jaguar" is needed to set it freeThe Planespheric disc led to two of the keys and everything we know about "The Hunters of Secrets" and the ways to destroy the entity comes from Nova and the Sitting Room, which is a world between worlds for those corrupted by the entity (where it also demonstrated that it can manipulate good people too (like through guilt). The sometimes contradicting actions of its pawns come from the fact that it manipulates through feelings not logic, and also because they miss information sometimes). It wants to get free, why not make it faster and incorporate the heroes in the plan too? The most surefire way to make them bring any item you want is to make them think that it will help them to defeat you.
Mr. E is Harlan EllisonBecause why not? In the finale, Ellison is indeed the Mr. E of the new reality created.
Angel and Mr.E were part of the original Mystery IncEpisode 17, "Escape from Mystery Mansion", has Angel hand them Cassidy Williams's diary; her claim that it's Mr E's latest clue is disproven by it not having his sigil on it. The obvious implication is that Angel IS Cassidy.
The gang are the chosen ones.Mr. E has chosen them to solve a very big mystery, which involves the Curse of Crystal Cove. The other mysteries Mr. E sent them to are tests to see if they're ready. Confirmed in the home stretch of the series. The gang is closest to the original mystery-solving quintet, and therefore the only ones who can destroy the Evil Entity.
Mister E was in the group of kids that disappeared years ago.Furthermore, they were once much like the gang, going around solving mysteries.
Angel was in the group of missing kids as wellThe article says 4 kids went missing, yet the picture is of 3 kids and a bird with a conspicuous missing part of the photo. Which is why Angel was quick to check it out, since she wanted to know if her picture was in it.
Mystery Inc. will go through a temporary break up due to Shaggy, Scooby and Velma's relationship woes.The Friend Versus Lover tension will build to the point where both Velma and a now frustrated-to-the-point-of-actually-objecting-to-the-relationship Scoob will try and force Shaggy to choose between them, effectively breaking up the gang until that situation gets resolved. (Whether or not this coincides with Daphne getting fed up with Fred's Oblivious to Love-that-doesn't-involve traps is up in the air; that would be the obvious cliche, but seeing how they function as a two-person team would also be interesting.) To fix things, Shaggy will have to smooth things over with both of them and fix their friendship — helping Shaggy and Velma reconnect so that he can enjoy being with both of them rather than having to pick one over the other. (Rule of Funny also suggests that after this, Shaggy would find himself the odd man out at some point while Velma and Scoob are busy bonding, giving him a taste of what they were going through.)
The original Mystery Inc. disappeared as the result of a Heroic Sacrifice to save Crystal Cove from a real supernatural threatHence why the parents what to keep the kids out of solving mysteries so they do not suffer a similar fate. The town's haunted tourism is also based around the commonly held idea by the Chamber of Commerce that the "real" evil is gone for good, and everything is is harmless. The supernatural threat is sealed away for now, but will return in a two part finale. The adults have concealed the existence of the kids out of shame of how they themselves were responsible for MI's death/disappearance, either by accidentally summoning the supernatural threat or by not aiding in its defeat. Mr. E was involved with the other adults in the cover up but knows of the lurking danger and is aiding the Gang to help ease the guilt of the original loss/ avenge their deaths.
In Crystal Cove, Adults Are Useless because they've been cursed.Thanks to Cassandra Truth and You Have to Believe Me, the previous Mystery Inc. wasn't able to get the help they needed. While investigating, they accidentally triggered the curse, which quickly affected the whole town. When they tried to uncover what happened, the residents swiftly discovered that any sort of investigation — or even helping others investigate — caused the curse to activate, putting them into serious pain... or worse. Fortunately, everyone born after the curse was triggered is free from its effects... for now. Of course, if the Scooby Gang accidentally triggered the curse again... Alternatively, the adults just believe they were cursed — the schemer behind it all was able to effectively 'fake' a curse by targeting anyone who tried to find out what happened until they backed off, convinced that the curse of Crystal Cove was in full effect. Either way, it's Nightmare Fuel incarnate for the adults — just consider what they must have been feeling during, say, Episode 5 — desperately wanting to see this stopped, but terrified of possibly triggering the curse...
Freddy's ConnectionProfessor Pericles did say to be careful on the closes person especially Freddy so what do you people think?
Fred will have an All Just a Dream episode about what will happen if they fail to solve the Crystal Cove mystery.Within it, he will likely find the fates of the gang after failing to solve the mystery and losing him. Theories on possible consequences.
The reason no one freaks out about a talking dog...Is because all animals talk. And have legal rights, explaining why Scooby Doo was arrested by the sheriff instead of the dog catcher,and why there is an asylum for criminally insane animals. Of course, this carries extremely disturbing implications about Daphne's family and their "cut of meat" comments.
The original Mystery Incorporated was betrayed by one of their own.Much like the current team, tension and resentment simmered beneath the surface, and it came to a head when one of them turned on the others. Not even Professor Pericles saw it coming, and lost his eye and potentially his sanity for it.
Professor Pericles' warning referred to Fred's parentsBecause it makes no sense to me that a former hero (judging from his association with the original Mystery Inc.) would try to split up their successors. Note also how Fred's dad is against Mystery Inc. solving any mysteries - ostensibly for the tourist revenue, sure, but in many cases, not stopping the villain could have ended very badly. Take Episode 5, for example: The Mayor was willing to let "spookified" kids run rampant without parents just for a few extra bucks. In essence, he was leaving them to fend for themselves, and these kids are how old again? They look to be approximately 5 years old. This leads to...
The Mayor is/was involved with the curse.There are multiple ways he could be, but two stick out in my mind. One, he's using the curse to make Crystal Cove profitable. This would explain why he goes so far as to abuse/criminally neglect portions of the population for tourist dollars (again, episode 5). Two, he's the reason the curse nailed the original Mystery Inc. and feels extremely guilty about it, and thus is stopping the new gang from getting hurt by hiding behind a Jerkass Façade.
Major Jones betrayed Mystery Incorporated.He used to be their friend, back in high school. Then he fell in love. With Judy, or Cassidy... most likely. Former could further explain his reaction to the locket; latter why Cassidy was torn out of the other picture. Once, he worked with them as a Sixth Ranger — extra muscle, perhaps, given which fraternity he picked in college. After learning his Love Interest wasn't interested in him, he pretended to shrug it off, hiding his jealousy behind a friendly smile. But when they needed his help most... He didn't show up. Or worse, took advantage of their plight to take matters into his own hands. Pericles witnessed part of the betrayal, so Jones ensured he was discredited. (He may even have ensured Pericles' injuries were severe enough that he wasn't in any state to speak for himself while Jones convinced the authorities whatever happened to the rest of the team had driven the poor bird insane.) The whole PR spin of making the "Curse of Crystal Cove" came later, both to help his campaign/secure his office and as a further "screw you" to the memory of the original Mystery Incorporated.
Angel is in on (one of) the Conspiracies.In the Legend of Alice May, it is Angel who "finds" records of Ghost Girl attacks going back to the turn of the century (presumably 10 years), which are displayed on her computer screen.This, of course,is impossible: Alice had only recently been hired by those at the back of the attacks, and was too young to be responsible for earlier attacks anyway.
The Curse of Crystal Cove is what makes people dress as monstersIt would explain the less plausible reasons people have been dressing up as monsters: They're cursed.
The two kids in the locket had a relationship similar to Velma and Shaggy's and Professor Pericles was their Scooby.When Velma read the message at the end of episode 8, the picture with the message had Pericles circled. The "Don't give up, this has all happened before" could be Mr. E's way of telling her that Judy and her boyfriend had their fair share of problems as well, just like her and Shaggy. Pericles might have been opposed to the relationship like Scooby is now. Remember, Pericles is riding on the boy's shoulder, indicating the Pericles was his pet like Scooby is Shaggy's pet. The creators might have intended the two to be more like Velma and Shaggy then Fred and Daphne. Velma just didn't catch onto it.
Mystery Inc. will eventually get fed up with the town's attitude and quit...at the worst possible momentThe gang breaks ups, quits, and/or leaves town after getting completely fed up with the town's treatment of them. Just in time for the real Big Bad to make himself known or a truely dangerous person to start causing trouble. Crystal Cove tries to make money off it as always, only for things to go south fast! They try stopping it on their own but to no avail, requiring them to bed Mystery Inc. to return and take care of it, earning respect of the town. Likely a finale, ether season or series.
Mr. E is giving Crystal Cove a Last-Second ChanceThe original Mystery Inc. was on the way to breaking the Crystal Cove curse but the town didn't help them, so they failed and fell victim to the curse. Mr. E is giving them a second chance to break the curse before something truly horrific happens.
The Sheriff and Mayor are secretly a coupleThink about it. You hardly see them without each other and in the Humangonauts episode, they were at that tourist attraction together and the Sheriff wasn't on duty. Can we say date?
The Curse of Crystal Cove is not the Haunted Treasure itself; it's trying to find it that triggers the curse.As we've seen, Crystal Cove is sitting on top of a series of caves; as we'll see in Episode 17, it's also on top of an active fault line that can be triggered at will. This clearly implies that any attempt to blast or drill into the chamber where the treasure is located will cause a ruinous earthquake.
Mayor Jones is the real Big BadThink about it. Who gets the most worked up over them stopping the monster attacks? Him. Who benefits most from said attacks? The Mayor whose town needs the tourism from them. Professor Pericles warned Fred to watch out for those he cares about, if its not a member of Mystery Inc., then who could it be? His father, who he still cares about reguardless. Mr. E said the other 2 members of Mystery Inc. won't move a muscle so long as Fred Jones is still alive. He didn't say which Fred Jones, and Mayor Jones' name is Fred Jones Senior. He's just playing obvious and his real intentions are far worse than we know now. Perhaps he wants to use the Treasure of Crystal Cove for tourism, or wants to awaken its curse to do that.
Fred Jones, Jr. is a hostage to prevent his real parents, Brad Chiles and Judy Reeves, from taking any action against Mayor JonesMayor Jones doesn't act like much of a father. What if he took Fred away from his real parents at a young age? The remaining two members of Mystery Inc. "won't move a muscle while Fred Jones is alive." That could mean Fred Junior.
The members of previous Mystery Inc. played different roles from their look-alikes in current one, subverting the Five-man Band trope.
Mayor Jones is The Freak.If you think about it carefully, it makes sense.
Brad Chiles and Judy Reeves are Fred's birth parents. Fred Jones Sr. adopted him.Brad and Judy are both blonde, Brad has the same chin and facial structure as Fred. Judy's hair is also similar to Fred's. Twenty years is enough time for them to have gotten married and have Fred, since he's probably around sixteen. Fred Jones Sr. may have had a thing for Judy and was a friend to the group, only because he liked Judy but hated Brad. In the flashback at the end of episode 25 we see a young man from the back with hair similar to Fred Jones Sr. which would also explain how he knows about the map. He doesn't show any affection for Fred because he's not his real son and because he looks more like Brad than Judy. He maybe protecting Fred as a favor to Judy and he may also have adopted Fred because of his connection to the original Mystery Inc and the curse of Crystal Cove.
The Freak of Crystal Cove is...Fred Jones Sr. Neither Pericles nor Mr. E particularly like or trust him, he clearly knows about some of things going on, and he's the most villainous character in entire series.
Fred will kept his name after he meets up with Brad and JudySince "Jr." doesn't appear in the intro to the cartoon. The episode introducing Brad and Judy might go something like this:
Mr. E is an Anti-Villain.Or at the least, a villain that has a Pet the Dog moment for Scooby-Doo.
The treasure has either powers equivalent to Pandora's Box or the Ark of the Covenant or it contains a demon.
Professor Pericles will build an Evil Mystery Inc. team for Season TwoProfessor Pericles is a criminal genius, and therefore Dangerously Genre Savvy enough to realize that his best bet against Mystery Inc. is to counter them with an Evil counterpart for the team. He would fill out the Scooby Doo role himself, of course.
Mister E will come out of his room in season 2....And he will come out because he was lured out by Pericles.
The Mayor will have a Villainous BreakdownMost likely in the form of the entire town having a riot.
Velma and Scooby will bond in season 2Velma will be the first member of the gang that Scooby gets back together with. As a result the two will get closer. And start hanging out together more, causing Shaggy to feel left out, and become jelous.
The will be several more Hanna-Barbera character cameos in season 2So far, only the Blue Falcon and Dynomutt were confirmed for episode 40. other possible candidates could be:
Daphne will rejoin Mystery Inc. after Crybaby Clown kidnaps her...And makes it personal. Confirmed at the end of episode 29.
The Crybaby Clown is really Daphne's new boyfriendAnd he was only dating her in order to get at her family fortune.
Mayor Nettles will end up leading Crystal Cove in a different direction for the betterKinda like a reformer, Nettles will prove to be rather divisive in the town. First, there is her open support of Mystery Incorporated. Then, there's her mayoral plan involves moving the main industry of Crystal Cove away from the "haunted" department to the "mysterious department". After what happened with Crybaby Clown, she might even have ample justification to prevent future haunting events too. This will make her a direct contrast to Mayor Jones of last season, showing that for all the grief the gang might get, their presence in Crystal Cove IS making things better, and her actions make a partial change to the status quo. (perhaps she'll even make Mystery Inc. contractors to get the town's problems solved, making that whole "vigilante" bit dealt with as well)
The treasure of Crystal Cove will be found then subsequently lost forever.The treasure will either be lost at sea during a vicious struggle for it between Professor Pericles and Ricky, or swallowed up into the ground by an earthquake. Pericles and/or Ricky will meet their demise attempting to retrieve the treasure.
Ex-Mayor Jones will die in a Heroic Sacrifice.When the chips are down Jones Sr. will earn his redemption by once again saving Fred. And Redemption Equals Death.
Professor Pericles was turned evil by one of the black pearls.As we know from "The Night on Haunted Mountain", the cursed treasure is a sarcophagus with black pearl inside of it that turn you evil. Now, we know Pericles is looking for the treasure, so it's possible he stumbled upon a black pearl in the old days of Mystery Incorporated, and did not know it was a part of the cursed treasure. When the Conquistadors delivered it, whose not to say some of the pearls spilled out somehow?
The gang is hunting for the treasure so they can destroy it.Given the carnage that the Cursed Treasure has left in its wake, the current version of Mystery Incorporated could well have come to the conclusion that the only sane and responsible option is to destroy it and thus save the world. By the end of the series, they're certainly aiming to destroy it. And they succeed.
Mayor Jones will get a Redemption Equals Death.He'll either escape from prison, or be released for good behavior (highly unlikely after so little time for so serious a crime IRL, but this is Scooby Doo). We've seen that he's now willing to help them against Pericles and the original Mystery Inc., and he saved Fred. So, now that his own plans to get the treasure lie in shambles, he'll be more interested in keeping Fred safe. This would be particularly heart-wrenching if it leads to a confrontation between him and Brad Chiles, with him protecting Fred from his treasure-obsessed real father. This would turn his kidnapping into a case of Happily Adopted as Fred realizes that, bad as he was, he really was the one who cared about Fred the most.
Fred Jones Sr. will have a quasi-Heel-Face Turn
Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm's cameos in the Man-Crab episode...Either a) that wasn't them, but their descendants, or b) the Great Gazoo had temporarily sent them to the future for whatever reason.
There's a reason Brad and Judy are acting the way they do.Pericles found and brainwashed them between the time he escaped the asylum and the time they arrive in town. In the finale, they'll break free and return to the side of good.
The finale will bring back a number of old characters.Both from this series and past ones. Returning characters from this series will include zombified versions of former allies (Ed Machine and Cassidy Williams) controlled by the Nibiru aliens, former enemies turned allies (Alice May, Fred Jones Sr. and Marcie Fleach/Hot Dog Water), and the Horrible Herd (controlled by Pericles), In the end, any zombified characters will be freed and restored to full life, while the Herd is permanently destroyed. Returning characters from past shows will include Scrappy and an army of characters from other Hanna-Barbara shows, come to lend a hand to the gang.
Pericles dies in the finale.Two scenarios: his own greed for the treasure causes him to remain trapped in a collapsing cavern, where he is crushed by falling debris; or he is injured at some point, and when one of his enemies tries to get him to safety, he refuses, his pride causing him to prefer death over owing his life to an enemy, a marked turn from how he and Ricky first became friends.
The Planispheric Disc will be destroyed in the finale.Either left behind and buried forever in the place where the treasure is hidden, or shattering on its own when the treasure is destroyed.
The Disc doesn't corrupt the animals......It corrupts the humans. Think about it: the human ghosts we've seen so far have the same sickly green color scheme as Nibiru, and the Conquistador's appearance was incredibly sinister. The animals, being descendants or vessels of the Annunaki (the beings who intend to stop Nibiru), aren't possessed by the Disc to want the treasure; they want to destroy it because they were warned or possessed by Annunaki themselves! Thus, the humans are the ones being corrupted by Nibiru. That's why Friar Serra warned the gang to kill Scooby; his master wants to keep the dog from preventing his release!
Professor Pericles is some sort of Shape Shifter.Personally, I hope not, because I like the idea of a little murderous parrot running around. But, considering the direction the series is taking, there's a chance that Pericles is not what he looks like. Either he's got a secret form that he used to kill Ed Machine, or some sort of mad science from Destroido or magic from Nibiru will transform our parrot into a hulking monster, which will then be killed in the final confrontation.
When the Nibiru entity is defeated...All the spirits it's holding captive in the dream world will be freed. Those whose originals are still living will pull massive Heel Face Turns, including Fred Jones Sr. and Brad and Judy. Those who are already dead will appear to the gang one last time to thank them for freeing them, then Ascend to a Higher Plane of Existence.
Note: Most of these would probably fall under "Plausible, but unconfirmed".
The new timeline is the old Scooby-Doo canon.
The issue of Traps Illustrated with a woman on the cover was covering the other type of trap....As part of a feature on Convincing Crossdressing. Fred keeps it handy for the disguise tips — he really does just read it for the articles! (And the centerfolds of Rube Goldberg Devices, but...)
The reason Scooby and Shaggy always believes the monster is real, is because before meeting the gang they met the Boo Brothers and the Ghoul School.If there is a real paranormal activity going on, it lends some credence for them being scared even though most of the monsters are just fakes in Crystal Lake.
Velma and Scooby used to get along before Shaggy started using Scooby as an excuse.That's part of why Shaggy did it in the first place. Not every girl would buy a line like 'sorry, but I have to consider my dog's feelings about this' note , but Velma was friendly enough with Scoob that she complied. The first time, Shaggy probably threw it out just as a desperation tactic and was shocked to see it worked; by the time the series starts, he's come to rely on that as an easy dodge, while Velma is seriously suspecting that there's more to it than that. Scooby, for his part, still likes Velma and wouldn't mind seeing her and Shaggy get together — especially if their becoming 'official' would help Velma revert back to the friendly girl he remembers.
It wasn't Scooby's disapproval Shaggy was originally worried about — it was his mother's.She doesn't approve of his being friends with the rest of the gang; imagine how she'd react if she knew he was dating one of them. That's the real reason why he didn't want anyone to know about it... even the rest of the gang. After all, what if Scooby slipped up and clued his Mom in?
Angel really spends most of her time spying on the townHer job at the radio station is the perfect cover for this. While she broadcasts music to the area she also has the technology for massive wiretapping and other forms of electronic surveillance. Just like how she listened in on the gang from her studio she keeps her ears open to all channels. Remember that she's friends with the gang beyond just having a cool place to hang out: the go to her when they are in need of certain information, like when tracking down who has bought and used what kind of tires during the ghost trucker case. She's keeping tabs on everybody. And she's all alone when the gang isn't visiting. And she KNOWS about all the current events in town. This WMG further enhances "Angel is Cassidy Williams/Angel is tied with Mr E" speculations because she would need the brains and resources to pull this off.
The Blake sisters are not hypercompetent over-achievers.Instead, they are insane, believing themselves to be doctors, models, military officers and so forth. Their mother shares in these delusions, while their father merely humors them. Reasoning: A lot more probable than multiple siblings making it through college by age 13, also: If they all have successful careers, why are they still apparently living with their parents? Myth Arc will likely avoid both "easily solved by a kid" and Clueless Mystery that Scooby-Doo more or less runs on. It isn't a Fair Play Who Dunnit either. It's a true mystery, one where the fanbase has to put on its collective thinking cap and grow a good crop of Epileptic Trees. General Evidence:
Mr. Rogers is vegetarian.Because he's voiced by Casey Kasem.
Fred has high-functioning autism/Aspergers syndrome.He is laser-focused on what he loves and is really REALLY good at it(solving mysteries and making traps), has poor social and communication skills, and it might explain why he broke down like he did after Daphne was kidnapped by the mancrab. He seems dumb because of his obsession and some of the things he says, but he's really an intelligent person who's mind works differently and has a hard time socializing.
Harlan Ellison is Velma's real fatherHe remembers "Cape Cod Dinkley" fondly because they had an affair. Velma inherited his intelligence, sense of superiority, and hatred of the way Shaggy uses "like."
Flim-Flam's scam was the 13 ghosts.Flim-Flam went to prison for his confidence games. What if his last big trick was a fake Chest of Demons, worked with the help of a Van Ghoul impostor? Special effects and hypnosis could have fooled Shaggy, Scooby, Daphne, and Scrappy. The motive would have been an all-expenses-paid trip wherever he wanted to go, for whatever schemes he was working on the side. A distorted version of that story (calling the demons real, of course) would merit an exhibit in the Spook Museum.
The following is Amy Cavenaugh/Amy the Siren's planned plan
Somewhere out there, there's a talking dog named Wolfie who knows what Skipper Shelton is talking about.You've noticed that Skipper Shelton is awfully chummy with Scooby; since he calls him Wolfie and talks about a shared past, it's likely that in Season Two, he and Wolfie will meet and compare notes.
A duplicate Mystery Machine was used for the engine-theft trickMr. E. has one or more duplicates of the Mystery Machine. He just had one without an engine towed up to Gatorsburg, dropped off, and original towed away. To return the engine they just swapped it back. What the Obliteratrix did was just a more dramatic version of the same trick.
Fred's birth name is Geoffrey Michael Chiles.
The original Mystery Incorporated are representative of what happens to the gang as they lose their ability to communicate with one another.
Shaggy's mom hates/fears Scooby because of Professor Pericles.She sees the parallels between the two of them, and she doesn't like it, not one bit. After all, look where the parrot ended up! And Ricky... well, that didn't turn out so well, did it? Now she sees her own son forming a similar bond with another talking animal — and if that wasn't bad enough, he's gotten into the mystery-solving, too! The last thing she wants is for her little boy to end up the same as Ricky, so splitting them up is the only way. Even if it means her son winds up hating her forever for what she's done... Clearly, therefore, the best way to solve this is for her to see firsthand that Scooby is not Pericles, and will never become like him. Then, and only then, will she be able to accept their friendship instead of seeing it as a disaster waiting to happen...
The Thirteen Ghosts Of Scooby Doo is canon
The Crybaby Clown from "The Night The Clown Cried" and the Crybaby Clown from "The Night The Clown Cried II: Tears of Doom" are not the same.This is somewhat similar to a "Two Freaks?" theory above, but here goes.. I think this may have been overlooked, but really, it is not impossible for there to be 2 Crybaby Clowns. Now, let's analyze Baylor's motives. In Part 2, he said he had been kidnapping people for a new film of his. But now consider this: Why did he start kidnapping people in that part when he had been terrorizing Crystal Cove for weeks? Surely he had time to kidnap them too, unless his motives changed. But we all know that is not the case here. And why a clown suit? It is possible Baylor withheld information from the gang, and he got his idea of a second Crybaby Clown from the original. And we know Baylor didn't kidnap anyone else because of who was on the plane in Part 2, and who he said he was gathering up. Also, the Crybaby Clown in Part 2 is less talkative, while the Crybaby Clown in Part 1 is more talkative. Overall, I think it is entirely possible the first Crybaby Clown is still on the loose. Unconfirmed. But since reality's been rewritten, we may never know the truth.
The Flintstones were the prehistoric precursors to the mystery solving teamsWhen Nibiru first arrived on Earth and set the curse in motion, it hit two families. Two men (Fred and Barney), two women (Wilma and Betty) and an animal (Dino). Dino is also far more intelligent then later episodes indicate, having initially spoken with an intellectual accent in his first appearance.
The "Full Moon" seen in every episode is not actually the moon, it's Nibiru, the planet mentioned that will destroy the earthIt would explain why it's full all the time rather than just every once in a while and one of the gang did say that the moon was bigger than they remember.
The Nibiru entity was sealed by its own speciesIn many myths, there is a civil war between the gods, in which one plans to destroy humanity, but is opposed by the others. The Nibiru entity sealed under Crystal Cove wanted to destroy Earth, but was defeated and trapped in a sarcophagus.
Crystal Cove is a very anti-gun townIt would be a family-friendly way of explaining the almost complete absence of firearms on the show (not even the police have any guns).
The government sent the first Crybaby Clown to attack Crystal Cove.And they know a LOT more than most people think. The Clown had two goals, and his bosses would have been satisfied if one or both were fulfilled. The first goal was to get everyone in town to cooperate with someone who was, effectively, a domestic terrorist. If they had, they could well have all been arrested for such an act. The second goal, and the one he achieved, was to terrify the populace into bringing Mystery Incorporated back to town, so they could finish solving the mystery of the Spanish treasure, and finally put an end to all the bad things that have been happening in town for all these years. At the end of the series, the government will send agents to Crystal Cove again to arrest the final group of villains, and one of the people doing the arresting will reveal he was the first Crybaby Clown, and why he did it.
Velma and Hot Dog Water will make TV history by being the first lesbian couple on an American show aimed at children.Their relationship seems to parallel that of Willow and Tara from the Buffyverse: You get the socially awkward, recently-heartbroken member of the gang to find someone of the same sex with very similar interests and abilities (magic or computers, as the case may be), the relationship is initially clandestine, and the rest of the group takes a while to see the outsider as one of their own. The ensuing controversy will just bring viewers to the show.
Fred Jones, Sr. has Schizoid Personality Disorder.Think about it; he seemed to have difficulty returning his son's feelings, did not care for the safety/health of Crystal Coves’ citizens, and preferred spending time alone rather than bonding with poor Freddy. Even so, the ex-mayor still has emotions, therefore making him a schizoid with emotions. Here are the symptoms of SPD that fit him. •Neither desires nor enjoys close relationships, including being part of a family. I never saw Fred Jones, Sr. display romantic emotions towards anyone. The episode “Where Walks Aphrodite” does not count. Aphrodite's pheremone made people fall in love with EVERYTHING on account of its scent. As for family, Fred only became his son due to leverage purposes. He doesn't really strike me as the type who wants children. •Almost always chooses solitary activities. His obsession with the Haunted Treasure, for example. •Lacks close friends or confidants other than first-degree relatives. His only friend was Sheriff Stone. They’ve known each other for years, and yet Mayor Jones fired his only friend in “Dead Justice”, without giving it a second thought - or an indication that his action bothered him. •Shows emotional coldness, detachment, or flattened affectivity. Freddy described him as “cold” in “Wrath of the Krampus.” He was not a neglectful father, but he was emotionally distant one. What do you guys think?
Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm's cameos in the Man-Crab episode...Either a) that wasn't them, but their descendants, or b) the Great Gazoo had temporarily sent them to the future for whatever reason.
Nibiru has been responsible for the citizen's apathy the entire time.As part of its engineering of Mystery-solving teams, it affects the people around its targets to alienate them. The fact that nearly everyone they know is a total bastard is a contributing factor to the eventual Face-Heel Turn.
The Nibiru entity is Maldor the Malevolent
The Freak of Crystal Cove is the Nibiru entity's true appearanceFred Jones Sr. mentions seeing the monster in his dreams which inspired his costume. Both Scooby and Mr. Tap-Dancing also saw it in their dreams as well. Since the Nibiru entity is sealed in a sarcophagus, it's using the dream world to"communicate" with others.
Nibiru was the reason behind Velma and Shaggy's one-sided secret relationship to drive a wedge between the team as part of his plan.
Even Nibiru finds Scrappy-Doo annoying, which is probably why he didn't stay with Mystery Inc for long.
The following is what some of the unknowns are doing in the new timeline from "Come Undone". Troops, feel free to add more.
The results of what happened to Nova in the new universe.
The pair of eyes in every previous series' theme song......Belonged to the Nibiru Entity, as this Tumblr post◊ shows.
Nibiru is sucked into the Dead Zone.
Season 3 would have been a Post Script Season.Namely, that although the main Myth Arc would be over and done with, a mini Story Arc would be created as the gang tries to solve one last mystery: What changed in history when the entity was destroyed, and what is the mystery of their new college? Just for fun, we can have cameos of all the older characters on the Gang's road trip, just to show us how things have changed.
If they had reached season 3, Fred and Daphne would have gotten married in the Grand Finale(the new one), and in a "Where Are They Now?" Epilogue, we'll see Daphne give birth to her first child, delivered by Brad and Judy
Scooby Doo and Nova would have eventually had puppies togetherWeird semi- extra dimensional puppies, but essentially, the legacy of Scooby Doo to be passed on forever.
Crystal Cove in the new timeline is extra clean because... The entity had its tendrils in every last thing, every last bit of weirdness that went on. It became so enmeshed in the fabric of Crystal Cove, it displaced every other type of corruption, regardless of its origins. When it was finally destroyed, every last thing it ever corrupted was not only not corrupted by the entity, it was never corrupted at all in any way. Witness the much mentally healthier Sheriff in the new world, not to mention Fred's three parents.
"Children of Nibiru" mystery-solving groups do not age, and the Evil Entity covers for this by altering memories in Crystal CoveThe second Mystery Incorporated was in operation for many years, much longer than their ages and status as high-school students can account for. The Evil Entity creatively warped the memories of people in town so they wouldn't recognize this. For this group we have a logical explanation of Comic Book Time.
Sheriff Stone and Mayor Nettles' children would've been a new Mystery Incorporated... There's four of them, so why not?
Dexter's Laboratory and The Venture Bros. are in the same universe as Mystery Incorporated, which is a prequel to both.With both Blue Falcon/Dynomutt (previously cameo'd in Dexter's Lab) and the Jonny Quest gang (side-characters in Venture Bros., even if they don't have their actual names there anymore) showing up in the episode "Heart of Evil", it seems pretty obvious that all five of these shows are part of the same universe. Most likely, the continuity goes from Mystery Incorporated to Dexter's Lab some time later (reality rewrite explains the less Frank Miller-esque Blue Falcon in that cameo) and then from Dexter's Lab to Venture Bros. at least a decade or so later.
In addition to being a Stealth prequel, the show was secretly more like an animated adaption of BioShock Infinite.The key is in how similar the two are, Like Bioshock Infinite, the series has a similar approach to mystery solving groups (there are always four humans and an animal, they always band together to solve mysteries, they catch people who are either disguised as or are monsters, and they are always involved with the cursed treasure), the hardcore deconstruction of the whole concept of Scooby Doo (whilst Bioshock Infinite does this to multiple political views and extremism in general) but most importantly, they have very similar endings; they essentially retcon the events of their respective works of fiction out of existence and replace it with a better one. The main difference however is we actually see this timeline, while Bioshock Infinite's is up for much more debate.
The Nibiru entity still exists, in the form of the gang.In the old universe, the entity was what guided their actions. Now the gang has been moved into a universe where they live completely different lives, with Fred a football player and Shaggy a chef. Since they're their old, trap-loving, slacker selves, that means that the Nibiru entity's influence is still a part of them. At the very least, they may retain its Weirdness Magnet during their travels.
