  • These minutes are for the meeting that held the deciding vote to commence the strike.
  • There are coded messages within these pages.
  • The key is "Correctronic 340". Googling this is a little tricky. It comes up as Brother typewriter ribbon, but what we actually want is the typewriter model itself.
  • Looking at an image of the keyboard of the typewriter, you will notice all of the symbols on the number keys are similar to those on our current computers, with the exception of the 6. This has the cent symbol on it.
  • The number that corresponds to the preceding symbol of a message is the number of times each letter gets shifted back.
  • The decoded messages read:

    • "Delivered by D.G."
    • "Distribute re: strike action."
      • *I do not see this one myself, but HaK has it in the recaps section.

  • There are 2 charms on this bracelet, a lantern and a bird in a cage.

    • Canaries in cages were often used by miners to warn of toxic gas leaks. As long as the bird was awake and alive, the miners were safe. If it passed out or died, they had better high-tail it out of there.

Lᴇᴛᴛᴇʀ ғʀᴏᴍ Mᴜsᴇᴜᴍ Cᴜʀᴀᴛᴏʀ

  • In this letter, the curator speaks of an apparition in her museum apparently trying to steal an item. She took a photo of him, which she included in our package. She has also included the item.
  • She believes the ghost to be that of David Griffith.

    • She says an older version. But his body was never found, and he was only presumed dead. There is no proof he died and wouldn't have aged to look like he does in the photo.

Mɪɴᴇʀ's Pᴏsᴛᴄᴀʀᴅ

  • This was the only item left on the curator's desk after "something" swept everything else to the floor.
  • There is an underlying coded message in this postcard.

    • One must shine the black light from Episode 1 on the symbols in order to see them better.
  • Seeing as we have not cracked the secret alphabet yet, we must add this to our list of things to follow up on later in the season.

Mɪɴɪɴɢ Cᴏᴍᴘᴀɴʏ Mᴇᴍᴏ

  • There is a cipher at the top of the first page and the bottom of the last page.
  • Seeing as we are dealing with letters, and we had to use a typewriter model in Episode 1, we will be doing the same in this episode.

    • Googling 1959 Galaxie typewriter produces the model Smith Corona Galaxie.
  • To decode the messages, pay particular attention to the punctuation preceding the phrases.

    • Looking at the typewriter keyboard, note that " = 2, ' = 8, and - = 6.
    • These are the number of shifts for the letters following those symbols.
    • You will shift backward in the alphabet.
  • Once decoded, the messages read:

    • "DO NOT DISTRIBUTE BEYOND THIS OFFICE"
    • "NO STOPPAGE. LVL NEGOTIATIONS WILL CONTINUE."

Nᴇᴡsᴘᴀᴘᴇʀ Cʟɪᴘᴘɪɴɢ

  • Are the authors of the articles related?

  • Is Pennywise haunting this town? lol

    • A man states he saw something that could not be. His neighbor did not see the monster, only Fuller.
    • Is the evil taking on the form of people's fears?
    • Could the evil have made the curator's neighbor see something that wasn't there, making him walk out in front of her car?
  • "A slow, dark flood pools at our waist."

    • The evil has come and is growing. This town is fucked.

  • This was produced by June's printer all on its own.
  • June believed it to be a message from David, but couldn't find anything significant.
  • Shining the blacklight received in Episode 1 on the back of the bottom half reveals messages in the otherworld language.
  • Once deciphered, the messages read:

    • "I'M GETTING BETTER AT THIS. MY SHADOW AND THE SOUND OF MY FOOTSTEPS CAN CRAWL OVER TO YOUR SIDE. SOMETIMES MY WORDS. IT'S HARDER TO SHIFT MY BODY."
    • "I'M NOT THE ONLY ONE CROSSING OVER. THE DARKNESS IS RACING AGAINST ME, AND IT'S WINNING. I'M SO TIRED. BUT I WON'T GIVE UP, BECAUSE SHE'S WAITING FOR ME. FIND ELIN. SHE CAN HELP BOTH OF US."

      • Apparently, part of the message in #5 was cut off in my copy, since according to the recaps, there is more to the message...
        • ... H-AY-T, F-OW-L TH-UH M-AI-N-D, AH-N-D K-IH-L AW-L IH-N-UH-R G-EUH-D (... HATE, FOUL THE MIND, AND KILL INNER GOOD)
    • Using what we learn here, we can go back to items from previous episodes to decode messages.

    • In the profile of David Griffith from Episode 1, the words can be decoded as:

      • "BRIGHTSTONE"
      • "ALWAYS"
    • On the miner's postcard from Episode 2, the message can be decoded as:

      • "I'VE BEEN WATCHING YOU A LONG TIME. I NEED THE TOKEN. THE EXPLOSION DOESN'T HOLD A CANDLE TO THE DISASTER HEADING YOUR WAY. GET IT TO ME NOW."
