Come on; multiple levels of reality, each more outlandish and unstable than the last? A Group of people going from level to level? Symbolism? It's Shared Dreaming! The Part where the mom dies is level one of the dream. When the Sister dies and Baby Doll is sent to the [[BedlamHouse]], it goes to level two. Then, the Bordello is level three. Finally, the fantasy bits while Baby Doll is dancing would be Limbo. So, when [[Spoiler: Sweet Pea goes free, that's her getting Incepted with the idea of freedom. Maybe she's in a prison or something.]]

* All the sequences seem to take place within mountain ranges, the first sequence being up in the mountains in a building and then there is a castle in the middle of the WW1 sequences which they attack in the third sequence which happens in a mountain side which THEN has a train through it in the final "Dance" sequence..If not the exact area, in the same mountain side .

The final bus scene is inside Babydoll's mind.. her SweetPea 'alter personality' escaping to a "paradise", like the Paradise Diner sign implies.

A strong girl, a protective girl, a shy girl, and a practical girl.
In the real asylum she tried to escape, but realized that the real freedom is from the pains of Memory and guilt, so she sacrificed "body freedom" for "mind freedom", and allowed on of the girls of the asylum to escape instead.

Recall at the beginning he was dressed in a strangely plain outfit, all white----it doesn't look like a doctor's uniform, but almost like hospital scrubs. As though his own clothes had been confiscated. Also, there's a deleted scene on the DVD which reveals that he is in fact a performer with the girls---but he doesn't dance, he sings. So if 'dancing' is the girls being raped, is Blue being raped orally by the men?

[[WMG: It's about Multiple Personalities Disorder]]
The final bus scene is inside Babydoll's mind.. her SweetPea 'alter personality' escaping to a "paradise", like the Paradise Diner sign implies.
The Asylum is Reality, the Brothel is Fantasy Level I, and The Video Game missions are Fantasy Level II.
MPD is nowadays called DID: Dissociative Personality Disorder, where the victim of abuse escapes into his mind by creating Alters, to deal with the horrors of reality.
After the guilt of killing her sister, the girl we know as Babydoll created 4 aspects of her inner personalities, based on 4 girls she saw at the asylum.
She projected those insane asylum girls into Fantasy Level I, as parts of her.
A strong girl, a protective girl, a shy girl, and a practical girl.
In the real asylum she tried to escape, but realized that the real freedom is from the pains of Memory and guilt, so she sacrificed "body freedom" for "mind freedom", and allowed on of the girls of the asylum to escape instead.
We never see the girl escaping but we know about it from Dr. Gorski's dialogue with the Lobotomist.
The movies director said that no one died in the asylum. The 3 girls dying in the Fantasy Level is 3 alters inside the girl's mind.
With accepting the lobotomy as "true freedom" she allowed her main personality to die also, leaving only the Sweet Pea personality, trapped inside a catatonic body, but living freely inside the mind.. knowing that an actual girl escaped in reality and probably living happily in the inside world.
This twisted satisfaction is the reason behind the content smile on Babydoll's face after the lobotomy..
She is guilt free and memory-free, traveling on a bus on a long journey of inner healing, with a wise driver who is a character from her Fantasy Level II (whom the actual girl who escaped the asylum never knew)
It's a sucker punch of a plot.
