“But Belle,” you think, “There have already been countless topics about Whit dying, and he’s the mainest character I know of!”
Yes. This is true. But I don’t mean Whit. I mean Connie or Eugene.
Or Eugene specifically.
You may remember the AIO art that first appeared in a clubhouse magazine, featuring Gary Locke’s take on the famous Beatles’ Abbey Road picture.
I couldn’t find the original, but here is that same image made into a meme by bookworm:
I have this actual image as a poster from the official AIO store, and it’s hanging on my wall.
As I was laying in my bed, looking at it, I was struck with a thought.
See, there was a whole conspiracy going around about the original Beatles’ poster, because Paul McCartney is barefoot. The conspiracy theorists believe that the poster was a funeral procession, and he was dead, because he was barefoot and that’s how people are buried.
Now look back at the AIO picture. Who is barefoot? That’s right. Eugene.
So what would happen if Eugene died?
Personally, I think it would take the show in a whole different direction. If Whit died, it could be chalked up to the fact that he is old, but if Eugene or Connie died, the other one, plus all their friends, would deal with pretty severe grief, especially since they are both so young.
Do you think AIO would ever make a move like this? Discuss.
