Bendy Chapter 4: The REAL TRUTH (Bendy And The Ink Machine Chapter 4) | Treesicle

Bendy Chapter 4: The REAL TRUTH (Bendy And The Ink Machine Chapter 4) | Treesicle


I don’t know about you but when I saw the
end of Chapter 4 I basically exploded internally and spent the next week processing what the
Boris happened. I neglected my interpersonal relationships, I sulked in melancholy loneliness
and developed several unhealthy habits… all in an effort to understand this spoopy
chapter. I mean, Alice stabs Alice but she’s actually good Alice and she’s teamed up
with Boris WHO HAS A BIONIC HAND (which Grant neglected to mention what an idiot). But what
do we DO with this information? And also you can get a plunger. A plunger!!! Boy howdy
I can’t stop sweating. Maybe I should get that checked out. BUT NOT UNTIL I GET SOME
ANSWERS! Grant, in his story you didn’t not not know
delved into a lot of interesting information. He asked you to comment with anything he may
have missed and like the mailman, ya’lls delivered. Like ohmygod did you deliver! During my smarty induced, sleep deprived,
lonely and neurotic daze I combed through every comment and combined it with my memory
of every nook and cranny of Bendy Chapter 4 and the updated previous chapters. This
was quite the ordeal people! I’m here to fill in Grant’s gaps 😉 and distill all
this mumbo jumbo into an even clearer picture of reality than was previously thought possible.
Fear not, confused viewer. I’m here to make sense of this goopy nonsense! What’s the
deal with good Alice? Grant said she was Allison, the girl who replaced Susie for the role of
Alice Angel cause Joey think with his. But is it true??? And what’s the deal with mecha
Boris over here? Why did they kill Alice? How did evil Alice make an evil Boris? Why
did Bendy let us live even though he totally knew we were there when he rekt the projectionist??
What’s with the pile of ink hearts? Why is there a plunger??? I can’t take it anymore!
We’re going in people! This is the TRUTH! The Real Truth. OF BENDY AND THE INK MACHINE
HIT IT Good lord, this chapter was amazing. After
the fetch quest BS that was Chapter 3, theMeatly really needed to pop back with a banger…and
boy did they! We were streaming Chapter 4 at 3PM Pacific Time on twitch.tv/treesicle
and I got SHOOK! Why the hell did I just say shook. When do
you ever need to channel your inner bro… I really don’t like what, now that I’m
saying that out loud. Maybe we should just cut that joke out. But regardless you know this ending blew my
mind so let’s start with that. A “not evil” looking Alice Angel and a mecha-Boris.
But who are these characters? Well let’s start with the easy ones. Alice and…Alice.
We’ve been introduced to the two people who had the job of voicing Alice: Susie Campbell
and Allison Pendle. Susie, based off her tapes, progressively got crazier and crazier as she
lost the favor of Joey Drew in favor of Allison who, despite having no tapes of her own, seems
to be pretty normal. At least in comparison to Susie. And based on all of our confrontations
with Evil Alice throughout the game thus far, and considering Susie kinda sorta got off
more than just a little bit to Joey calling her Alice. It’s safe to assume her delusions,
combined with the evil ink, morphed her into the evil Alice Angel we see before us. I mean,
hell, there’s even a painting in that final room of an Alice Angel looking woman with
an evil ink blob morphing her. Check and Mate. But then who would be the yang to Susie Angel’s
yin? Allison Pendle. And considering the game data reveals to us that “good” Alice’s
name is, in fact, Allison Angel…well…I think that settles that. Now, to Good Boris. As with Allison Angel,
his ‘real’ name isn’t found in the game itself, but within the games’ files. Thanks
for the comments telling us about this everyone! Good folks of the internet, allow me to introduce
to you: Tom. But who is Tom’s real life counterpart? The answer…is Thomas Connor.
He first appears in new Chapter 1 complaining about the godforesaken crummy pipes and spoopy
ink machine. Then he appears twice in Chapter 3, once complaining about the crappiness of
the elevator. And again trying to convince Wally to stop being an idiot but Wally just
pulls his whole “I’m outta here” crap. BUT YOU KNOW WHAT!?! He wasn’t “outta
here” quick enough. Because let’s take another look at post-op Thomas at the end
of Chapter 4. Looks just like a Boris clone. Except…is that arm mechanical? Yup. Tomris
is missing an arm. But what happened? Well the giant arm in the Chapter 4 “now in production”
trailer and the giant arm hanging above the butcher gang in Bendy Land are both right
arms, potentially even the same arm, considering they’re both giant. And, well, Tom is missing
his left arm, so it probably wasn’t Susie Angel that took it. My best guess here is
that our dumbass friend Wally tightened the safety bolt instead of loosening it, blowing
a bunch of the pipes around the studio causing Thomas to lose an arm in the process and (potentially)
killing Wally, and finally allowing him to “get outta here”. Hehe. But upon losing that left arm, Tom went to
work getting a new one, taking the arm off of the Bendy animatronic that we find near
the Butcher Gang in Bendy Land in Chapter 4 and taking it for himself. TURNING HIM INTO
SUPER BORIS! Or…just Tom. Huzzah! If you’re wondering how human Tom became Boris Tom…I’ll
touch on that in a bit. But what the hell happened here? Well, (as
you know) I’ve been doing a lot of thinking. Well, not JUST me. Me, Grant, Tyler, Mike
and I have been brainstorming and we’ve come up with some ideas. Hell, I thought our
Story You Never Knew on Chapter 4 killed it – you should watch it after this if you haven’t.
But the big thing this Chapter taught us is the good versus evil battle that is happening
within Joey Drew studios. It’s not just us as the protagonist trying to escape Alice
Angel, The Projectionist, Bendy and all their evil minions. There’s another faction of
characters that are battling the evil entities. There’s an evil Boris. There’s a good
Boris – with a mechanical arm and a name, Tom. There’s an evil Alice Angel. There’s
a good Alice Angel. There’s the mysterious, havoc-wreaking entity that is Bendy. Some
have even speculated that WE are a good Bendy. We’ve never looked in the mirror have we? So to dive into this, let’s make an outline
for what we’ve learned here. We start the game by the broken elevator where
Evil Alice stole our good ol’ buddy Boris. We meet a bunch of inky people who are quite…docile…and
in a very sad state. Unlike most of the other inky beings we’ve encountered thus far,
the only one who seems even remotely dangerous is just hitting his head on a wall. Over.
And over. And over again. We then discover Bendy Land, a glorious…theme
park? Created by Benedict Cumberbach. Belmont Piedmont. Bertrum Piedmont, an ego-maniac
who put his own face inside a carnival octopus ride.
Next up is the Projectionist. A dudey dude who gets a bit angry when we take a pokey
poke at his pi le of ink hearts. But after chasing us and trying to project our guts
into another dimension, his head is ripped off and body taken by none other than the
ghostly entity Bendy himself. THAT SMILE IS THE THING OF NIGHTMARES. WHOEVER THOUGHT CONSTANT
SMILES MAKE CARTOON CHARCTERS SEEM MORE FRIENDLY COULD NOT HAVE BEEN WRONGER. Wronger? Wringer?
More wrong? Whatever. We proceed and go for a little ride, meet
evil Boris, do the dance and yada yada yada meet good girl Alice. But let’s focus on
evil Boris. Where did he come from??? To answer that let’s look at what’s next on the
agenda: it’s time we address those ink hearts in the projectionists…area down there! What – we’re not gonna talk about the pile
of organs just sitting on a table? I don’t know about you but the last time I saw a pile
of organs casually sitting on a table the walls were covered in cellophane and there
was a sweaty guy in a mask asking what my favorite part of the human body was. His was
the appendix. He collected them. Weird guy but we’re cool now. Anyway as a critical
thinker myself, I have to wonder what these ink hearts are for exactly. In the previous
chapters we see Boris and pals strapped to surgical tables with their chests ripped open
to reveal an empty cavity where a heart used to be. We know evil Alice harvested those
hearts to make her so beautiful. Beauty is subjective but idk Alice I’m not into it.
Also in Chapter 3 Alice has us do her bidding and retrieve 5 ink hearts from the projectionists
other lair. This leads me to two questions. One, why are
these hearts always found with the projectionist? And two what are these things for?? That’s
actually the second time I asked that question so lemme answer that first. We know Alice
collected these things and we know these hearts can only be extracted from a body that used
to be human. These aren’t just organs that formed from the ink, these are inkified human
hearts that used to be part of human bodies before said bodies were converted into inky
cartoon characters to suit the needs of Alice! If you’re wondering where these bodies came
from, they used to be employees here at the studio. Now they’re cartoon characters.
This is how Thomas became Tomris! …Boris Tom…You get it. These employees’ modified
bodies are strapped to these tables and their souls are trapped in the ink. You can see
their souls manifested into ink early in Chapter 4…crying and miserable and wanting to go
home. Grant went into more detail about that in the story you never knew, so let’s focus
on these hearts. We know Alice has been collecting them and we know she sicked evil, roided out
Boris on us as the end of Chapter 4. Clearly our no longer loveable Boris is no longer
a standard “print” like the other ones. There’s something different about him…somehow
Alice breathed new life into Boris and made him into a monstrosity that is custom made.
He is no longer an off-the-shelf cartoon character that the ink machine can just pump out…this
Boris is a new, unique being. If we want to know how Alice was able to create such a unique
kind of life, we need look no further than the ink hearts. These hearts came from bodies made of flesh,
from bodies that had life-force and so these hearts contain within them the complexity
and life-force that can catalyze new life into existence. Alice Angel collected hearts
to make herself “so beautiful”, yes but she also did it to build a minion…a terrifying,
unique one that mindlessly serves her and has its own skills, attacks, rage, and strength
that normal enemies do not. Of course, once the heart is used to create new life, that
life will dissolve like any standard enemy does when it’s defeated. The flesh is no
longer lasting…it has been used as a catalyst for new life and it can do no more than that.
This is why evil Boris dissolves instead of sticking around like the dead employees and
like evil Alice (I mean Susie). So hopefully that explains what the hearts
are for. But let’s not forget about that other question…why is the Projectionist
collecting them?? For now we can assume he’s either trying to build his own army OR he’s
trying to stash them away from Alice or Bendy so they can’t be used for evil. At this
point, we really don’t know what side the Projectionist is on. He clearly hates us and
Bendy clearly doesn’t like him, and Alice didn’t like him either…because we basically
stole the hearts in the Projectionts area in Chapter 3 in order to serve her. The Projectionist
is still a bit of a mystery to me…maybe let me know down below what you think he’s
here for. Up to you. Personally I’m content with the secrets
and explanations we’ve got in this video so far…hopefully you are too. If you’re
still not impressed I’ll go over them again. We know from the character model in the game
files that this mechanical-armed Boris is Tom Connor and we have reason to believe he
lost his arm in an inky explosion thanks to Wally Franks not knowing how pipes work. Also
Wally Franks died from that same explosion. RIP you sassy janitor, you! He really did
“get outta here”. Theeeen we know good Alice Angel is actually Allison Pendle (also
thanks to the game files). All of this tells us there’s a clear battle between good and
evil going on…we’ve got evil Alice, good Alice, evil Boris, good Boris, and last but
not least we now have a speculative understanding of how exactly these ink hearts work and that
they were used to mutate our happy pal Boris into evil Boris. After playing through Chapter
four and ALL the new and improved previous chapters on our stream, reading your comments
and racking my brain these were the answers I could conjured up. Some hopefully that fills
in some of Grants gaps and sprinkles upon you the golden bits and pieces that together
in their glittering, beautiful majesty make up the truth. THE REAL TRUTH. Now those of you that have been a part of
our livestreams or social media have probably heard about some stuff that goes on behind
the scenes. You know all the different aspects of creating these videos. Writing, filming,
editing, just to name a few. The whole process takes a lot of man hours. Which is why I’m
so thankful to sponsors like Skillshare who keep this channel afloat. You guys might not
know, but when we started making videos we had little to no background in editing, filming,
audio work…all that stuff. All these skills we had to pick up on our own. And services
like Skillshare got us to where we are today, and made it easy. Skillshare is an online
learning community with thousands of classes in Film Production, Illustration, Creative
Writing…you name it! Classes for all the necessary skills to make that video telling
us how wrong our theories are…or…you know…non Tree hating videos. And if video production
isn’t your thing, Skillshare has an absurd amount of classes on almost anything your
heart desires. We all have new things that we’re looking to try, or skills that we
want to improve on, and finding the right classes online can actually be surprisingly
difficult. Skillshare makes it all easy by housing all these high-quality classes in
one place! I’ve been learning editing skills, audio
techniques, the whole she-bang for the past 4 years now and, man, right when I started
checking out Skillshare I learned all sorts of ways to improve my editing, and I’m kicking
myself that I wasn’t using it from the git-go. They have thousands of classes on Premiere,
Photoshop, heck the entire Adobe Creative Suite for all your video production needs. Sure, I know I’m talking a lot about video
making but that’s just because that’s my wheelhouse…that’s my passion, but that’s
not all they have! You want to learn it? Skillshare probably has it! And the best part? You know…besides having
one of the largest online learning communities around…it’s affordable! An annual subscription
is LESS THAN $10 PER MONTH! Pretty cool huh. Oh, wait, I lied. That’s not even the best

  1. Thanks again to Skillshare for sponsoring this video! Support them by going to: http://skl.sh/treesicle

    And if you want to hang out with Ryan and the rest of the Treesicle boys, stop by our streams EVERY WEEKDAY at 3pm PST: https://www.twitch.tv/treesicle
    Who knows…we might even be live RIGHT NOW!!!

  2. I re watched it

  3. THE PERFECT CRETURS

  4. THis vid has been banned cause of DRUGS

  5. You've got a deep voice. I bet you can do an impression of Markiplier

  6. I think that the protectionist is on brother aide because I think he thinks youre going to take em

  7. I want what ever he is on 🙂

  8. You still haven’t said who the original boris was and who he was because he was the one helping us before he was kidnapped and which one would be the good one and if the ink people at the start of chapter 4 are the employees then how are they so many boris’ and creepy clown people kept by Alice in chapter three, sorry I just can’t understand with things like this missed out

  9. Oh Ryan. Having your smartie cocaine parties again.

  10. he is on his own side

  11. OH NO HES HIGH ON SMARTIES

  12. If there is a good and an evil version of each character, like evil Alice being Susie, good Alice being Allison, evil Bendy being Joey and (people theorising on) good Bendy being Henry, who's Tom (the good Boris) evil twin? Wally Frank maybe? Even though Boris died and disappeared like searchers and butcher gangs do?
    Also would the Projectionist have the good/evil twin too? (Since the Projectionist is Norman Polk.)

  13. Maybe the protectionist wanted revenge on Joey drew studios because the protectionist had arms and legs and hands

  14. It seems more likely that Thomas lost his hand and part of his arm in a machine accident instead of an pipe explosion. In chapters 3 and 4 machines are seen along the walls in certain areas. Thomas is a handy man around the studio meaning he would have to maintain them. From his audio recordings we learn that Joey is cutting corners focusing mainly on the ink machine. With Joey cutting corners I highly doubt he would be worrying about safety, making an accident like that highly possible. Heck, in chapter 3 there is evidence of Joey ignoring safety in the audio recording where Thomas complains about the elevator clearly stating that someone's going to end up falling to their death.

  15. I think the projectionest hated us in chapter four because we served Alice.

  16. I got an add that showed me a man who got impaled by a dolphin and now lives with a dolphin in his chest,WTF
    It was a POM wonderful ad.

  17. I think Henry is Bendy, mostly because of the protectionist and how he protecs the hearts from evil. We might be what he hates, Because we look like Evil. He must be trying to store them for alice, But this doesn't add up. I know this was little feed back, But I honestly believed we were actually good bendy before this. 🖤

  18. I think it's just being alive. HE wants to be alive again.

  19. Ur voice sounds like a mine if I constantly exhale

  20. When I saw chapter 4's ending I was like 'WHY I NEED TO RETHINK THIS ALL THE WAY AGAIN!'

  21. Loading…. 👍

  22. 0:18 don’t we all do this?

  23. you after steroids

  24. These video game personalities are all just too much

  25. He still has his arm its just a arm brace

  26. i always thought ink bendy was joey drew, since (besides sammy) is the only person who knows who you are. he is just trying to protect you, such as chasing you to boris, who helps you, and scares you so you run to the exit of the workshop, and hopefully gets you out, but alas it failed, and he finds other measures, such as killing the projectionist right before he finds you.

  27. treesicle i want to know why bendy is always happy

  28. super boris sounds stupid but i won't say anything but love your videos

  29. You still forgot the traveling ink machine you see in the arm hallway

  30. Maybes projectionist uses hearts to power his projection head

  31. When the cocaine starts kicking in > 2:14

  32. We're You Doing Cocaine? On 0:18?

  33. In chapter 3 you can get a gun, which you can kill the Projector with, you'll get an achievement
    along with a name of who he was

  34. mabie the hearts is what powers the projectionists projector

  35. #RIPSassyJanitor

  36. I think the projectionist was trying to serve bendy, stashing away the hearts so Susie couldn't get them, but when he failed bendy killed him and took his body while not caring about Henry.

  37. .-. This is idk what this logic is in the beginning. Like wha?

    For those who dont know its a terrible weak joke

  38. WHY IS THERE A PLUNGER

  39. Wow, i thought you were using a voice modifier to deepen your voice

  40. Wow first time i saw you ruin a intro

  41. he snored candy it's sad and funny at the same time

  42. The Bendy Land makes dude reminds me of someone… cough cough Springtrap cough cough

  43. The beginning thoo!XD

  44. I ' M O U T T A H E R E

    RIP Wally Franks 2018- 1923

  45. Alicen does have a casettape

  46. I'm surprised you didn't mention that "Evil Boris" is actually dead. Meaning the hearts don't bring life, they bring animation (haha) to things. It also means that the hearts are alive on their own. They're their own beings.

    Also, I feel like Bendy is just not evil. I mean, he's the main character yeah? We see him like 5 times, and he doesn't really try to hurt you (from what I've experienced). I think he only acts when it comes to ink people (meaning we're still human) and he isn't acting because he's evil, but because this is what he was told to do. He's acting like a robot, following orders. Maybe at the end, rather than finding/becoming a "Good Bendy" we'll find the true villain of the series. Someone we would never expect

  47. In chapter 3 Alice Angel said ‘take the lift down, come see an old friend’ this could mean that the projectionist is with alice

  48. Bendy saw us when he was destroying the projector ink monster we hide in a box a projector ink monster follow us but when he try to open the door bendy kill him and bendy even saw us but he did not attack us

  49. Is it just me, or is his voice sound like it was edited to be an octave lower? I'm pretty new to this channel, but his voice struck me as odd. Is that his actual voice?

    Also, this is just my opinion, but I think that Borom sounds better than Tomris

  50. Bendy has the same smile as Sans… SANS IS BENDY!!!! Jk

  51. Why are your rockets called smarties? Silly americans.

  52. Pronjectionestis neurtral

  53. Did wally really die? One cool theroy is that Wally is the first Boris we meet in chapter 3 and fight in chapter 4. Or is Wally actually Bendy? Maybe he just has his own twisted way of cleaning up the mess Joey and Henry started? Either way they made Wally to important in the tapes for him to not have greater significance later on.

  54. He's good. He wanted justice

  55. 1:57 What would happen if you didn't go into the locker when the projectionist was chasing you, but instead keep going down the hallway

  56. CAN I PLEASE HAVE ANOTHER NARUTO THEORY PLEASE, IM BEGGING YOU PLEASE!

  57. These beautifull edits tho

  58. Y O U S A S S Y J A N I T O R Y O U

  59. Is it just me or the good Alice Angel looks like Alice from Alice Madness Returns

  60. in bendy land AKA bendy hell who wrote it? and why is it that when u see evil bendy ink is everywhere but when he's gone all of it is gone?!And if we were good bendy who would be that bendy be?

  61. You forgot the fact that they are both after you. Both bendy and evil Alice, AND the projector so who is the actual enemy?

  62. The projectionist is like that one guy everyone hates at the studio

  63. If I hear one more get outta here joke I'm outta here

  64. Wally is chapter 2 and 3 boris. Tom is 4 and 5 boris. 2 and 3 boris died cause you fight him in chapter 4.

  65. I guess the story's of the dead borises (Bori?) Are quite, HEARTwrenching.

  66. The Memes are too strong

  67. Kingdom Hearts became a lot more violent than I remember.

  68. Allison angle/ Alice angle Tom Boris /Boris

  69. the vids are always so cringe when this guy is here

  70. Those are Rockets, not Smarties tho..

  71. Sammy it in chapter 3 music room

  72. BENDY!!!!!!!! ¡!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  73. No Wally didn't die want proof? Here by GT a.k.a matpat https://youtu.be/TtLwtcDYuLE

  74. I KEEP SEEING THE SAME STAR WARS SHIT MOBILE GAME APP AD, MAKE IT STOP

  75. Am I the only one who envisioned Thomas Conner as bald? (I mean, I know others animated Conner as a bald old dude.) I’m also hoping that mecha Boris is the original Boris, cause then otherwise, it means our Boris is probably dead. 😢and that would be sad.

  76. Is it just me or does he sound like Patrick sometimes when he screams

  77. projectenest(sorry for the bad spelling)is wally,wally rip tom's left arm and tom wanted revange,so tom kill him.when ink bendy put wally in the ink machine,the camera or what you guys call it,accidently drop in to it,and the projecternes is born.(sorry again for the bad spellng)

  78. Don't do drugs kids!
    Do skittles instead. 😏

  79. Some of that happy dust

  80. If the Joker made Twoface and Jar Jar started the War that made Darth Vader and Peter Griffin is the Father of Stewart Griffin . I think Shawn Flynn the Toy maker (jacksepticeye) is the Clown that is the one that is pulling the Strings and the one that made Jigsaw like traps that made everything Dead Silence in this Roger Rabbit like world . Hennery is Dr. Frankenstein that gave Benny life ,and when he came back 30 years later the place is like the House in Home alone and Charlie and the Chocolate factory . It needs Ghostbusters .

  81. I think the projecetsinost (I think I spelled it wrong) is good but he was mean to us because we went into his area

  82. This guys awesome
    And lol his voice is deep as fqck

  83. Treesicle did you ever think that the projectionist is Wally because of the problem that cause Tom aka Boris, to lose an arm and kill himself but that after that Bendy or Alice took the Brady and made it there own minion and have the minion disobey them ,furthermore explaining why Alice took his ink hearts and Bendy killing him . I is just a theory but think about how well the facts go together and the timelines.

  84. Wally, is Boris, he did not die

  85. How do you know that Wally Franks died?
