Observation #1

This is basically a "Dear John" letter to one of the band members.

  • This proves the "taboo relationship" rumor to be true.

According to the recaps, there is supposed to be a hidden symbol on this letter.

  • The letter is signed with "sergeant" stripes. I can see the design very faintly but the black light does not make it pop and makes the design disappear completely.

Observation #3

This means the letter was written by the band manager, Rachel, who was nicknamed "Sarge".

Hidden Contract

Observation #1

This is behind the framed photo of the band.

This brings up the rumor of a fifth band member.

Observation #2

According to the "contract" between Peter Bowman and Dean Castillo written on a restaurant napkin, Dean is the fifth member.

Handwritten Lyrics

Observation #1

The date on these lyrics is around the time Jake was complaining in his journal about Gabe writing his own songs.

  • Jake did not write this song. Marcus and Gabe wrote this song about Rachel.

Journal Pages

Observation #1

Jake was obviously more serious about the music than he let on to the public, and it's evident why he eventually went solo.

Napkin Contract

Observation #1

This is a "contract" between Peter Bowman and Dean Castillo.

Observation #2

Peter promised to make Dean a start in the "upcoming band".

Observation #1

What the hell?! LOL

Observation #2

Lots of mixed stories.

  • The most believable is the girl trying to pull him offstage and him defending himself.
  • Just too humorous that he would just up and kick a girl for no reason. But coupled with the other articles, Ollie had a lot of pent up aggression. He must have known Jake was leaving and the band was about to break up.
  • And why would choreography take him that close to the edge of the stage... that would be dangerous.
