WTF Is it the Hyde on Wednesday?

The Wednesday series is shrouded in spooky mystery. As I watch it, I'll always ask questions.

Netflix’s Wednesday series has a thick, mystery-like spooky onion, piqued in bits. The more I watch them, the more questions I have. Most of them are some version of is Jenna Ortega ever gonna blink? Or wtf are all these sirens about? Now that I have peeled back the layers of the unknowable onion, I’ll have more layers. If I can just identify what the name of a Hyde was in Edgar Allen Poes, then perhaps I can dice this mystery onion a once for a time. If you want to serve it, try out a creepy little stew. Do it with haunted olive oil. Be careful. Take pride from the top of the grave.

Is it another thing for Edgar Allen Poe, or?

Yeah! While most of series are one big homage to the Prince of Gothic Fic himself, Edgar Allen Poe didn’t take the notion of a Hyde. That honor goes to Robert Louis Stevenson, who wrote the novella The Strange Fall of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde in 1886. The story was about an intelligent, rich, and practically sexy chemist named Henry Jekyll. Doctor Jekyll is a prominent figure in his community and has performed veterinary medicine for the poorest in Victorian London. What a boy! He is, therefore, a sweet angel of a man hides a twisted secret: Dr. Jekyll took his own life in the night to perform strange experiments, and created a chemical concoction which converts him to a monstrous alternate personality named Mr. Hyde. Mr. Hyde isn’t the kind of guy that you want to get in on the grim, gas-lit streets of London in the nightmostly because hell kill you. He can eat you. The novel is a good-and-evil story about the duality of men. My mother is a angel from above, and my mother is a devil from below, both of whom are living in one place.

What is a Christmas holiday?

Where did all of this business in Hyde on Wednesday begin? The same place everybody with a murder most foul! The story wouldn’t be fun without a high schooler dying under mysterious circumstances! After some students and townspeople were killed, Wednesday Addams resolved to solve the problem. She annoys the student body, and questions a fellow student who translates to Xavier. Xavier has weird visions of a monster he has begun incorporating into his artwork. Tuesday is obsessed with drawing drawings until she shows her uncle Fester one of them (a very creepy picture of a humanoid with sharp teeth, long claws, and devoid of sight). Fester tells her that he’s already seen this kind of creature many years ago. He call it a hammer and says that he once loved thiswell and was fond of the Hyde and is very excited for the new year.

Ten days off at the Zurich Institute of Criminal Law, a woman named Olga Malacova is smitten Fester. She was all a strange old dude like Fester could ever want: she was beautiful, her intellect was true, she was really into dead people like really into them, if you know what I mean – sexually, sexually, sexually, physically, physically, emotionally and emotionally…! Sorry, a frog in my throat! She may have banged a corpse or two. If this wasn’t spooky enough, she’s a mass killer, too! She became a concert pianist, but decided to disqualify her critics, and a dozen of her audience in a concert song.

Why did Olga do that? Fester doesn’t know, so Tuesday sneaks into the private library of the exclusive Nightshades club with her uncle and Thing. He finds the diary of Nevermores founder, Nathaniel Faulkner, who was killed by an adelo many years ago. Nathaniel writes that Hydes are by nature, but in temperament also vindictive. He explained their problems further: born of mutation, the Hyde lays far away until unleashed after an unfortunate event or unlocked through chem inducement or hypnosis. This causes the Hyde to form a relationship with its liberator, whom the creature is now seeing as its master. It becomes the willing instrument of any nefarious agenda this new master might propose. The usually unexploring Fester is really disturbed by the idea of unlocking a Hyde, and told me this morning that anyone who does it is a next-level sicko. Wednesday realizes that she is not on the hunt for one, but two killers.


Okay, and obviously this is a huuuuuuuuge spoiler. It’s the ENTIRE PLOT of the season, so I can, if you want to ruin it for you, please let me make it seem that you hate you.

This is your last warning don’t leave any hope of spoiler-free writing, ye who scroll here.

Remember the sweet, adorable guy with a coffee shop who sometimes gets on Wednesday to solve mysteries? The boy who would probably have to tell Google how to hurt a fly? Well isn’t it suspicious that spooky Wednesday addams is into her? Youd think a girl like Wednesday could go for someone with a dark side. Well, perhaps she sensed that he was hiding something deep inside herself and she figures it out DURING THEIR FIRST KISS. When the two smooch tiem, Wednesday has the vision that the Hyded Out Tyler killed the therapist in the town! It was HIM. I have to have a quick check. What’s a hat! THE CORE OF THE MYSTERY ONION is REVEALED!

Will it be good or not?

He’s a boy. Tyler killed all those. But who made her do it? Who’s the monster master? Who tries to draw the strings? Let’s make it to Wednesday to find out. She finds out that Tylers mother was also a Hyde and that her postpartum depression caused the condition to manifest. But Wednesday isn’t the first time that kept an eye on Tyler. It turns out that Mrs. Thornhill, the science teacher, has been manipulating Tyler all the time! She used a chemical concoction to awaken Tyler’s powers – all so she could take revenge against the school’s outcasts! What a shock! He has it all right. The Mystery Onion was chopped, caramelized, and baked into the Quiche of Discovery on Wednesday! We go girl, good sleuthing.

But I’m sure there’s another more mysterious layered object in season two. Perhaps the parfait of the world? We won’t know until we find out what we have to do.
