    I don't think that in 1985 6 children were killed. I think Scott is just retconning again. Remember when he said that you need to look lore sometimes from a vantage point? You know, as he did with silver eyes, twisted ones and the fourth closet. So I believe that Scott is, once again trying to clarify things, with a set of murders, but just ends up confusing us as always. Maybe he tries to clarify that there were actually 6 kids murdered and not 5 as we are told in the missing children incident. I don't know it might be true. Sorry about my bad English 😅

    I really miss the old days when everybody was freaked out about golden freddy in the first game and trying to connect him to things. I wish i could go back in time and experience it again. I guess i'm gonna need to find a ballpit

    I had a thought; is the banana splits based on fnaf? Because in the trailer (I haven't seen the film) the costumes have glowing red eyes. Coincide??

    There should definitely be a show for fnaf, all the lore and mystery behind this would make for a great tv series. And the models for fnaf mobile, could already tell me that with enough work we could all get a great new series.

    Scott might as well just go ahead and start making FNAF 40: the root of CHAOS... In that book it will tell you who the father is in why the father did it and who made the father did it boom 💥 🤯

    I haven't seen any comments saying anything, so I’ll give a mini theory: The 6 kids go on to possess the Toy Animatronics. I mean, the 3 core toys (Freddy, Chica, Bonnie), Mangle, BB... ah french burritos, nevermind.

    Wait, the “into the pit” murder victim kids can’t be the animatronics kids. All six were killed at once, or at least in quick enough succession that nobody noticed before the killer wanted them to, but we know from ultimate custom night that Chica/Susie was the first one killed, and was killed with enough time before the next killing to have possessed the animatronic and to have “seen” everything else that happened.

    Random thought because I'm rewatching these, this is probably totally wrong, but what if Vanny, was the killer, just like how it shows in the new poster that Matt shows at the end of the episodes.
