GUYS WHAT ABOUT KELPIES!?!?! See we have a legend about evil horses in Scotland, like if you get on the horse you'll get stuck on it and it'll try and drown you. We even have a giant statue of 2 horse heads in the country. So What if they got drowned by a Kelpie? Yeah you get what I mean. Anyway anyone else who's Scottish or Irish (it might be Irish) Do you know what that story about the guy who was a cannibal and made his whole family hunt down people to eat in their house. In the Edinburgh Dungeons their is a part where they talk about this story and it's like a guy saying he's gonna hunt you down and stuff. If you know what I'm talking about then say something.

Scottish lighthouse with three missing men and no one mentions selkie? Tut tut. (I know it's not Supernatural, but still.) Or sirens. Come on. Celtic mythology has loads of things that would fit better than aliens. LOL. Also, Lighthouse keepers WERE traditionally more likely to be victims of selkies, especially if they were actually washed out to sea in a storm or in high winds. The selkies would save them by turning them into seals or carrying them off as husbands (or wives for the women) and turning them into selkies as well.

I haven't come to the theories part yet but I think what happened was that one of the guys went crazy and killed the other two and then made the last log saying the storm is over and the sea is calm and God is above all? Because he was the only one seeing the storm and was going insane about it and in his insanity killed the others until he found calm again? And then after realization of what he had done, maybe he jumped into the sea to end his own life too?

#postmortem - Would it have been plausible for all three men to have been fishing close to the shore? Makes the story of a giant wave washing them away slightly more beleivable than all three falling in at seperate occasions like some sort of slapstick comedy

For Postmortem: the "healing sheep" and "hallucinating (storms)" gives me some ideas(?) mulberry leaves are said to be good for sheep, and though the ripe berries are edible the unripe ones may cause hallucinations and stomach aches to humans. The black mulberry is able to grow in cooler climates, like Britain and Scotland. As for the "no signs of violence" two could have been collecting the ropes/tackle box supplies and one just *shoved* them into the ocean with an oncoming wave, and then jumed in himself (or just..shoved the other two off the cliff, who needs an axe with those jagged cliffs :) ) idk what im talking tbh anyway i love the show and ghosts aren't real. sorry ryan #postmortem #shaniac #DemonsLiveOutsideMyWindowAndImOnTheSecondFloor

The men could’ve ingested something that made them all hallucinate or become paranoid to the point that they killed each other/themselves. Sour milk or something. Poison. The only thing I think Roderick is guilty of is being bad at his job #postmortem #shaniac

I find it odd that they thought it special because sheep had twins on the island. In general, sheep commonly give birth to twins or triplets, with single lambs being more rare. Doesn't seem worth risking the murder island with the rapping sprites for.

FOR THE POST-MORTEM? Maybe the off duty keeper (Joseph Moore) killed them. If he wasn't on work shift for those two weeks, is it possible that he could have taken a boat out (damaging the west rig in the process) and killed them before cleaning up the scene, and pretending he didn't know until he arrived on the island? Also, if he killed them and then faked the logs (which could explain why people could poke holes in them) he may have written about a mythic-level storm so people thought that's what killed them. Also to get even crazier, is it possible that the reason the lookout (Roderick Mckenzie) didn't report the trouble is that Joseph Moore told him that James Ducat's experiment had been approved so he could ignore any weird signals from the lighthouse? Then Mckenzie didn't tell them because he was in on it OR afraid of getting fired? Anyway, super excited for the new season! love y'all and stay safe!!
