DFTF & the gist of everything; a theory
(warning: long post, no cut)
*cracks knuckles* OKAY. so i’m about to give my two cents on the theories surrounding the comeback but this is gonna be a long one so strap in and enjoy the ride i guess??
but before i get started on the DFTF stuff i just want to do a bit of recap on the members’ powers and their counterparts back in mama era (yes i’m going all the way back bear with me). from the beginning, we are shown that each member has a special power and those from exo-k have a counterpart in exo-m and the pairings went like this:
xiumin (frost) - suho (water manipulation)
luhan (telekinesis) - kai (teleportation)
kris (dragon’s flight) - chanyeol (phoenix’s fire)
lay (healing) - baekhyun (light)
chen (lightning) - kyungsoo (enhanced strength/earth?)
tao (time control) - sehun (wind manipulation)
i think these parings are fine but for me a couple of changes could have been made to make more sense to their powers. in my opinion, i think it should be:
xiumin - suho
luhan - sehun
kris - chanyeol
lay - baekhyun
chen - kyungsoo
tao - kai
obviously, xiumin/suho make sense bc their powers are related to each other where suho’s is the foundation of xiumin’s more refined control of the element. kris/chanyeol also makes sense for the same reason. for lay/baekhyun, healing powers can reconstruct damages from wounds and even bring dying flowers (maybe even people) back to their full health. basically, lay restores a living thing’s energy. but light is a form of energy too. flowers need light to survive and so does the rest of the planet for that matter. but i think baekhyun uses that light to be able to concentrate the energy into his hands to form a beam powerful enough to blast anything in its path (who are u? tony stark??). 
Tumblr media
tbh, i’m still kind of unclear about ksoo’s power on whether he can actually manipulate earth (like an earthbender) or if he has enhanced strength. either way, he can shake the earth and obviously he’s more powerful on the ground. with lightning, it can travel three ways: cloud to cloud, cloud to air, and cloud to the ground. you can think of their powers as being related by how the fissures in earthquakes are similar to the patterns of lightning. kyungsoo causes the rumbling in the earth, while chen causes rumbling (thunder) in the sky (hence why they are parallels of each other in mama mv)
Tumblr media
for those i think should be switched, we’ll start with luhan/sehun. sehun has the power of wind but throughout the history of their powers i don’t think we’ve actually seen him have full control of his ability? in mama, he’s in the desert (this is gonna come up again later!!) with a raging tornado behind him. i mean, i guess he could be doing that intentionally but for the sake of this entry i’m going to assume he can summon the wind but he can’t fully control it. meanwhile, luhan can easily manipulate objects and we could think of this as him just actually manipulating the air around that object. luhan’s control of the air is more stable whilst sehun’s is the opposite. 
Tumblr media
for tao/kai i think it makes more sense for them to be counterparts since kai travels through space and while tao’s power is to stop/start time, he has the to potential to travel through time as well. these two go hand in hand because if they’re together, they’d be even stronger as traveling through time could be faulty since the time you might want to go back or forward to isn’t going to be in the same exact location as you are now. 
BUT WAIT! we’re left with 9 members so what happens now?? 
i actually made a “theory” about exo having new counterparts back in 2016 but i’m scrapping the main idea from it and will just be referring to particular points going forward. so for now, let’s go with the assumption that their counterparts are as they are in my version. this means that sehun, chanyeol, and kai no longer have their counterparts. now what?
let’s first make two assumptions: 
their powers become stronger when they are with their counterparts: like i’ve mentioned above, they’re stronger together than they are apart. but additionally, it’s a bit safer for them to be separated since they are much more easily located by the red force if they are all in one place.
if one loses their counterpart (i mean for good and not just separated by distance) then eventually, the power of the one who was lost will manifest itself in the one who is left
for (2), it would make sense then as to why in sehun’s pathcode teaser, he finds the toys floating in mid-air. at this point, he’s unaware that he’s actually the one doing this. (@raven-rin​ points out the similarities between luhan’s scene in mama with the orbs and sehun’s “planet” in the DFTF teaser photo which supports my theory that they are connected in this way). 
Tumblr media
in chanyeol’s pathcode teaser, he seems to have lost some control of his power whereas in mama mv, he was able to keep a small flame in his hand under control. 
Tumblr media
for kai, we’ve mainly see him teleporting on earth and he’s had quite a good control on his power since the beginning. but i think now, with tao’s power manifesting itself in him, he’s now able to teleport beyond just earth. we can take his mmmh mv for example too where he’s teleporting between worlds and currently, his power symbol is that of a hexagon with a keyhole in the center; he is the door between worlds and the main connection between the others. 
SO THE POINT TO ALL THIS IS there was a theory posted by @vampwrrr​ and pointed out by @loeyarc on twitter about how the members are not in their own planets but they actually landed in someone else’s. i think this could be true since xiumin is in a planet with aurora’s (baekhyun’s planet), kyungsoo is in a red planet that could possibly be chanyeol’s. kai’s might be in kyungsoo’s and baekhyun’s in a planet where there’s ice which could mean he’s in xiumin’s planet. i’m not sure about the power swapping (tho i absolutely love the idea) but i think they might have just landed in planets they were closest to. 
but i want to point out how chanyeol is in a planet that looks like a desert 
Tumblr media
now, this could actually be sehun’s planet in parallel to where he was in mama. sehun, on the other hand, is actually in luhan’s planet (going back to the reference @raven-rin​ made). 
Tumblr media
i think here, he’ll finally realize why his powers have been glitching (from pathcode) and how he now has the ability to move objects like luhan did (disclaimer 1: since not all members are present for this comeback, who’s to say they can only land in the planets of the active members’ planets??. disclaimer 2: not saying luhan is still member, he clearly isn’t. i meant for members who are enl*sted. for all we know, one or two of those planets could be chen’s or lay’s, etc.)
idk if DFTF is a pre-quel to power or a follow up but *if* the latter was the case, then the end of power makes sense. throughout the mv, we see suho, xiumin, kai, chen, chanyeol, sehun, and kyungsoo fighting the giant red force robot in possibly a different planet (i’m thinking the exos actually banded together to track down the red force themselves to get their powers back and in every planet they encounter these RF bots who keep destroying the planets they occupy) but for most it, baekhyun isn’t there fighting with them. he does show up near the end which confirms that he’s in the same place as the others but why isn’t he fighting?
let’s recall that their powers are stronger when they’re with their counterparts. if we go by the theory from lucky one that some members lost their powers, then it makes sense why none of them were able to fight off the bot with their powers alone (which they regained by defeating it in the end). i do think they are still strong at this point but their powers are weak. as for baekhyun, his counterpart is far away. lay hasn’t really been with them since monster era so he was probably playing it safe by not actively fighting alongside the others. (if he’s powerless and separated from lay then he’s the most vulnerable compared to the others)
at the end of power, we see baekhyun falling into the water/ocean. how did this happen? if exo left the planet they were in in power, it’s possible that after defeating the bot, it triggered the red force of their location. the red force then proceeds to destroy that planet in an attempt to kill exo once and for all
Tumblr media
(disclaimer 3: screencap is meant to show an example, not that this is exactly in the same timeline as power)
but the exos manage to escape in their ship in time but their ship malfunctions (could be hit by debris from the planet’s explosion) and they have no choice but to leave the ship. i think their ship has “escape pods” meant for each one of them as a way to escape safely in case of an emergency. but let’s say these pods will immediately head for the planet they were set to (again, kind of like a safety protocol type thing where they get sent to different locations to avoid detection from the red force). to add, say that in the chaos, the exos just went into whatever pod they got to first which is how they end up landing in different planets. 
maybe something happens to baekhyun’s pod and he has to manually eject himself from it. but we see he lands in the middle of an ocean 
Tumblr media
and in his DFTF photo teaser, we see he’s in a planet with ice caps and water
Tumblr media
you still with me? i’m about to tie everything together and finish i promise!
remember the second assumption we made? “the power of the one who was lost will manifest itself in the one who is left”. what if the red force know this? what if the reason they’ve been after exo is because of this fact? but if that were the case, where would the powers manifest in if the exos are gone? i know the lot of us skip the intro of mama but it states that an eye of red force “coveted the heart of the tree of life and the heart slowly grew dry” which meant that the tree of life is the source of the twelve force’s powers. 
Tumblr media
everything started with the tree of life and in an attempt to save its remaining powers, they split it in half and hid the halves from the red force. the power of the tree of life is what connects exo. but as mentioned, if one is lost, the power will continue to live inside another. if the red force destroys all of exo, the powers they possess will be returned to the tree of life and if the tree of life is whole again, the red force will in no doubt abuse its power and continue their plans from the very beginning. 
then we can say that in lucky one, it was another tactic used by the red force to extract their powers. those extracted powers were then used to create x-exo. since x-exo are under the red force’s orders, if they manage to destroy exo, their powers will undoubtedly go to their x-counterparts. but as the red force control’s x-exo they still have the upper hand once this plan is set in stone. i mention this to get us back on the current timeline seeing as DFTF may be strongly connected to power which precedes obsession. but then again, i’m not even sure about the exact order of the timeline but this is just my theory so it’s just for fun!

EXO will have their comeback in 8 weeks + proof
I may sound crazy throughout this entire thing, but who isn’t during comeback season?
anyway, baekhyun created his twitter account on june 1st, and he had 8 followers before he announced his twitter account on instagram (as shown below) so my guess is that the other 8 accounts are for the rest of the exo members. 
Tumblr media
The accounts will be announced weekly which lead up to the date July 27th. July 27th is significant because it’s the date of a total lunar eclipse, and exo have their comeback dates coinciding with eclipse dates.
Tumblr media
 Also baekhyuns profile pic on twitter is definitely a spoiler🐸☕️

I really think Kyungsoo might be the traitor...
I mean, he’s not trying to fight those women in lucky one mv, and look at this shot
Tumblr media
Besides, in Tarot 12 apparently means The Hanged Man, and look at the description
Tumblr media
I know his birthday’s on January 12, but maybe that’s not the reason behind his number after all...

EXO Theory Pt. 12 - Tempo
After a year and two months, we finally get a new EXO Comeback. I was dubious on the first listen through, but this song is a certified banger. The MV is a little disappointing? Not enough storyline for me - I actually thought they might do something different in the Chinese version, and more involving of the motorbikes!!, but I guess not. However, that’s not to take away from the aesthetic appeal of it - and the dance! But let’s get into the theory anyway shall we?
<<- First Part  |  <- Previous Part  |  *Theory Masterpost
Tumblr media
So, the first thing that really stood out to me on the first watch through of the MV was the images of the hands pressing against the white cube when Suho is seen walking around it.
Tumblr media
I find this unbelievably reminiscent of the scene in Overdose when D.O first receives the cube that falls to him in the intro.
Tumblr media
Who is trapped and desperately seeking freedom from this weird white cube? Well, I’m not sure, but my theory is that this is the subconsciousness of the EXO members trying to escape.
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
We see a hint to this in Lucky One when Suho and Xiumin are shown to be trapped in this odd boxes. I’ve long held the idea that Xiumin and Suho are trapped by their subconsciousness too, which is why we get so many images of these two in particular being trapped. The fact that in Tempo, Suho is seen looking at the hands is interesting... so let’s look at some more of Suho in the MV.
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
The other scene with Suho that I thought odd, was the one when we see him in the room with Baekhyun, in a mock cube. whilst holding a cube also. This room is peculiar because we see a fallen (alight) chandelier next to Baekhyun, and this is the same room where the clock on the wall is upside down and moving in a strange way.
Tumblr media
This relates to the MV that I placed Tempo after - Monster. In Monster we see time moving backwards, in two scenes, but one where Baekhyun is driving them away from the captors - at the end of the MV.
Tumblr media
I think this relates to the obvious theory that time is acting odd in this story - but also to the hint that EXO released a few days ago. End = Beginning. The end can only happen when we go back to how things were at the beginning. The question here is: the beginning of what? The whole story, or the beginning that Baekhyun refers to in The War comics - the Pathcode era?
Back to Tempo, Suho seems to have a role of observation in this MV - a trait we usually assign to either Xiumin or D.O in this story. However, another member is seen observing too.
Tumblr media
I was immediately taken aback by the scenes of Chen interrogating Chanyeol in this MV. Chen is the only member we see move from one of these odd rooms. First we see him in the bar with Sehun, where he is watching Chanyeol through the window.
Tumblr media
This ties back in to the theme of Monster again, by the continuation of the police/authority figure - except this time it’s Chen. This could link nicely to Horololo as well.
After the members are saved in Monster it’s only natural for them to believe that there is a traitor or a spy within their midst - and I believe this scene is Chen trying to figure that out. As it is, this MV seems to be the story of EXO re-entering fully into the same plane as back in the beginning of the story, as in Romantic Universe where we see the members being tested - the same could be happening here.
In Electric Kiss we see Chanyeol going through a lot - he’s other trapped in a box (as is Kai) or he’s screaming, as demonstrated by his outbursts throughout the MV.
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
I think Chanyeol is the most susceptible to the deceit and lies told to the members by the Red Force: where the others know that they are stuck in another reality, I think Chanyeol is unaware of this. In the Ely’XiOn VCRs we see hints of this - Chanyeol dreams of fire, and then the room is actually on fire.
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
Later in the Tempo MV we see Chen give Chanyeol an inkblot test - and what does Chanyeol see?
Tumblr media
He sees himself as the helmeted figiure who brought them into the cube. If Chen is accusing Chanyeol of being the traitor, does he start to actually believe it himself? And, as such, this guilt and doubt manifests itself in visible ways -
Tumblr media
From fighting other members in Sing For You.
Tumblr media
To a physical representation of his ‘betrayal’ in Power.
This would be especially interesting if it does in actuality turn out to be Chen who is the spy - as I, and many people, suspect to be the case - as it would mean he’s actively creating a scapegoat here in Chanyeol... A disturbing thought.
One other thing I thought was interesting was the scene with Xiumin and D.O where they’re building the cube..
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
Not only is it very significant that these two members are together, surrounded by flowers (in a way that is so reminiscent of CBX’s Blooming Days btw) - but we’ve seen something similar before.
Tumblr media
Excuse the quality of the gif, but in the Parallel Universe teaser, we see another image of both Xiumin and D.O building a Jenga tower together. Odd that this scene is re-imagined in Tempo but also with the effect of reigniting the cube as it does. At this moment, I’m not entirely sure whether that’s a bad move or a good one, but it’s beyond interesting that it’s these two members.
I’ve spoken countless times about the link between Xiumin and D.O, but this just amplifies my belief in that so much more.
I also think there’s something to the scene of D.O passed out while Xiumin walks around.
Tumblr media
In this room the door is physically covered, which symbolises the entrapment of these members in a very special way. Xiumin and Suho I’ve spoken about before, but D.O is also very important to mention in this regard.
In Love Me Right we see a sequence, which I believe, shows D.O moving deeper into the dream.
Tumblr media
D.O literally walking through doors to end up in the red light - like Alice going down the rabbit hole.
In Tempo we also see images that show D.O being somewhat different as the omniscient power that he is.
Tumblr media
Very near the end we get this image of OT9 (omg finally!!!) with all the members somewhat glitching out - except for D.O. I think this relates back to my theory that there is more than one D.O roaming around in this story. I go into more detail in Part 7 of my theory but basically the three outfits we see D.O in in his Pathcode is showing that there are multiple D.O’s in different planes of this dream. Although he is trapped by the Red Force, and is in a deep plane of the dream, he is still somewhat free at the same time.
The last thing I want to touch on right now is the final image of Baekhyun holding the cube at the very end.
Tumblr media
We’ve seen a few times that Baekhyun is trying to fix something that went wrong at the end of Pathcode/Power/The War - and I think this is another image referring to his mission. I think this could lead on from Monster nicely too, as we see Baekhyun in the pivotal role in that MV - but it also continues to Electric Kiss too - because we see Baekhyun central in the end of that MV too.
In some ways, I think we are seeing Baekhyun trying to reunite the members - they still need to be reunited in order for the Heart to be fully healed. This glitchy scene with D.O is showing how far apart they still are. And Baekhyun especailly needs to be reunited with his healing partner to have any chance of survival - so re-entering the cube is his best bet to get them all out together, in some weird way.

EXO Theory Pt. 11 - The Cube
So we finally got some information about the new comeback ‘Don’t Mess Up My Tempo’ and the concept that the MV is gonna have. The short film that was released yesterday didn’t spoil a whole lot but there are some things that I think are of note nonetheless!
<<- First Part  |  <- Previous Part  |  * Theory Masterpost  |
Okay, so the first thing I’m gonna talk about is the Short Film. The first clip we see is the image of the members riding the motorbikes; and most significantly, we see the headlights for each motorbike demonstrating a different colour.
Tumblr media
The array of colours is the same that we are introduced to in the previous MV ‘Power’.
Tumblr media
Of course atm we can’t really corroborate if these colours are aligning with the same people, but it’s likely. And we need to see if Lay also gets a colour and orb (although there’s hints to his orb in ‘Namanana’ ofc).
Other than this and Jongdae’s amazing vocals and the God like visuals of motorbike gang EXO, we’re not given much of anything else regarding theories in this short film. BUT the poster they also released is very interesting indeed.
Tumblr media
So the text at the bottom of this poster is IMO very telling of what the overarching theme of EXO’s storyline is. I wanna highlight the parts I think are very important for this:
‘Speed loving bikers enter the fragment of frozen time as they log into the red cube.
So, frozen time...This is something I’ve spoken about before, particularly in Part 4 of my my long theory. In LMR, there are two members in particular who seem to be literally frozen in time. I used these exact words in fact.
Tumblr media
We see Baekhyun in a room of frozen pages, and Lay wears a painted watch.
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
Now time isn’t completely linear and working properly in the EXO universe, right? First of all, Tao’s superpower was time control so he could literally change time and how it moved. We see hints to the timeline still not working completely lineraly in MVs such as in ‘Monster’
Tumblr media
And in ‘Power’ when we see Baekhyun land back in time to the events of ‘Pathcode’.
Tumblr media
This is IMO an example of the timeline not working exactly in the way we expect it to. Also, I will state in my overall theory I don’t have all the MVs in order of release - for example, I think that the events of ‘KoKoBop’ MV are set near the beginning of the story not just before ‘Power’, which I put near the end of the sequence.
Speaking of ‘Pathcode’ however, I think this leads to a hint of the next line.
‘Solving the given puzzle is the only route for all to escape.’ However, the bikers are unable to resist the temptation and reenters the cube.’
I think the wording of ‘for all to escape’ is such a big hint. In the ‘Pathcodes’ I thought that the members were being duped into believing they had escaped the grasps of the Red Forces. Except for a few members. I believe Soo did manage to escape in at least one version of reality during the ‘Pathcode’ teasers.I would also argue there is a possibility that Lay managed to escape in a way too which is why he’s not as fully captured as the other members, right. Baekhyun seems to be evading them in the ‘Power’ MV too, as he has hidden his orb and manages to escape the world to fall in the water at the end.
So, I suppose the point I’m trying to make here is that they need to go back into the dream, log back into this cube in order for all to escape, not just some of them. I think this idea can relate back to ‘Love Me Right’.
Tumblr media
The story of ‘LMR’ is pretty much the story of ‘Alice in Wonderland’. I’m sure everyone knows this by now. I interpreted D.O’s role as Alice’s counterpart - the reason being I think he is literally diving down the rabbit hole deeper into the dream world, in order to find the way to escape.
Tumblr media
Now D.O has the ability to do all of this due to his power being Earth and able to fill the omniscient role - basically he’s more aware of what’s happening at all times, isn’t deceived by the Red Forces as much as the others, and is able to see into the others worlds/planes/dreams as evidenced in his particular ‘Pathcode’ teaser.
Tumblr media
And this is why he’s given the main role of Alice in this MV. And the thing I like about LMR is that, although it seems a very confusing and static MV, the story really is quite simple and easy to understand. A big part of this is because this is echoing an established story - ‘Alice in Wonderland’ - and so the roles and plot is already known to the members, - they just have to follow the script.
Tumblr media
And this leads to something I always found quite interesting... in Chen’s ‘Pathcode’ we see him reading a book titled ‘Overdose’. Now why is that? Because ‘Overdose’ is also following a plot that is well known, at least to the members.
This also links to the earlier statement ‘for all to escape’. We know that EXO is stuck in a maze in ‘Overdose’, it was even their logo at the time. Also in Lucky One we are once again shown this maze, to draw our attention to it again so we realise that hey, they’re still actually trapped.
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
Suho and Xiumin see the maze, they know the path they have to follow to escape. Chen is reading this book that tells him the story of ‘Overdose’. And then the real kicker in this story. The Cube.
Tumblr media
The cube first came into the theory in 2015 when it was used as the Logo for both ‘Call Me Baby’/’Pathcodes’ and also ‘LMR’ activities, and now it’s being reintroduced and is referred to on the Poster as something the members are reentering into... This is interesting.
In ‘Overdose’ we see a something else very interesting concerning a cube...
Tumblr media
In the intro part of the video we see a mysterious cube float down into D.O’s possession and he sees some creepy images and drops the cube.
Tumblr media
I’ve always understood this moment as D.O regaining his memories and re-realising that they’re all trapped, not only physically in the maze, but also spiritually.
And tbh this also links to the question of how time is travelling in EXO’s world during all this, because once D.O drops this sand from the cube, Lay is seen lying on the ground and the sand is going backwards in time.
Tumblr media
I’ve always thought that this image of the hands that Soo sees flash when he opens the cube are related to the images we get of Xiumin and Suho in Lucky One.
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
The way the hands are pressed up against a container just makes me think that this has something in common. And we know ‘Lucky One’ also shows us that they are stuck in a maze.
Tumblr media
The Maze could very well be synonymous with the Cube at this point, and that’s actually very likely. But there’s something odd about the last part of the phrase on the poster.
‘the bikers are unable to resist the temptation and reenters the cube’
The Cube, IMO, is representing the state of their trap. We know that EXO is trapped in this weird dream state, and for whatever reason they can’t seem to get out all together. From the MAMA narration we know that they can only reunify as one on EXO planet when the ‘red force is purified’.
What if the temptation they face is from the unpurified red force. We’ve seen more times than I can count as this point numerous examples of the EXO members acting strangely as though under an influence of some kind. Think about it, we see it in ‘KoKoBop’ with the pills/candy...
Tumblr media
The weird ‘trips’ Xiumin and D.O have...
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
And the similar vibe from Sehun and Chanyeol in ‘Electric Kiss’..
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
The odd smoke effects in ‘LMR’ and the injection in ‘Lucky One’...
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
There’s probably even more I can’t name all of them. But then also, the song we’re introduced to the concept of a maze is literally called ‘Overdose’. What if EXO is literally addicted to being trapped by the Red Forces? As though the taint of the unpurified Red Forces is what is actually keeping them trapped, not an actual inability to leave. 
And so this red Cube they’re reentering is their entrapment, their addiction. But this time they have Lay with them... And well, Lay is the Healer. If anyone can cure EXO of this affliction it would be Lay. And Lay is the one who I mentioned at the beginning who is frozen in time in ‘LMR’...
Tumblr media
I think it would be kind of cool if this comeback referenced going back in time to either LMR or the Pathcode era -  to this ‘fragment of frozen time’ - like how we see Baekhyun do at the end of the Power MV. And it’s only through returning to this point in time that we see someone make a real change and manage to solve the puzzle for real this time. 
They have all the clues, all the knowledge, all the members. Can EXO finally escape the Cube for real?

Exo theory: lotto is the key
Lotto was the repackage of exact.
Monster and lucky one were the two different sides:
Lucky one: exo as prisoners in a lab and people experimenting on them, creating a serum that makes the clones
Until they somehow get the drugs out of their system and rebel to get out
Theory: the way the women's heads explode can only be caused by telekinesis, luhan's superpower, so either he is still in the story or another exo member absorbed his power, probably lay
Monster: the clones, not yet being controllable and very dangerous, also in prison, but they rebel and one of two baekhyuns is getting them out
The monster logo was made of bones and metal instruments. Which also makes sense if u ask me
Lotto is the one where these two paths collide.
Baekhyun for example is inside and outside the cage.
Maybe there is only one Baekhyun after all, or he is the one playing a double game. Which means he could be the one who sold the others out and in the end freed the clones.
These are the x-exos getting revenge on the ones who held them hostage to use them as a weapon against exo.
The tree was split in two halves as exoplanet was destroyed, right? Well kai is buring up a tree in lotto.
Theory; the serum basically splits their souls or powers in half. Means they create the clones with half of the original's power and then dublicate it somehow, this way, the world as in every single exo member is split in half. That's why they cannot go home. That's why half of every member is trapped in a maze - it's their other self trying to get out, their soul trying to come together again but instead they get used to create clones.
Basically their enemies created monsters to fight original exo, but the clones are not amused and go crazy.
The logo e)(o represents the two worlds clearly separated in e and o which leaves the )( = x.
As in: x-exo.
After they escape they cannot use their powers normally, and they get mad. Also they now have to share their mind with their clones, meankng they have indeed a conncetion. Kokobop is some kind of high hallucinations and exo re-learning how to use their powers, maybe even teaching them how to use them.
Thing is: the evil gets the x-exos back. They turn against exo and hunt them, as in love shot they point guns at each other.
This is about which side to chose before you go to war.
Usually when you want peace you use a white flag. The flags are black, this means the war as the comic in the last album is coming.its exo fighting themselves and x-exo fighting their own moral.

EXO Theory Pt.10 - Chanyeol’s Eyes
So I finally got around to fully watching through the Ely’XiOn VCRs and noticed some interesting lines in D.O’s monologue at the beginning. One line in particular really made me go ‘whoa’ though:
Blinded by the reality of dreams, words could not find its meanings anymore.
And I just got to thinking this has to relate to EXO’s storyline - half of their MVs have a real dreamlike vibe going on, and it’s a pretty well loved theory that EXO are actually trapped in a dream. So, what could it mean to be blinded by the reality of dreams?
<<– First Part  |  <- Previous Part  |   * Theory Masterpost
Sequence of MVs:
MAMA/History/What Is Love  -  Miracles in December  -  Romantic Universe  - KoKoBop  -  MAMA 2016 VCR  -  (Parallel Universe)  -  Lucky One  -  Overdose  -  Love Me Right  -  Wolf/Growl  -  Lotto  -  Coming Over  -  Pathcodes/Call Me Baby  -  Monster  -  Electric Kiss  -  Sing For You  -  For Life  -  (Parallel Universe)  -  Lightsaber  -  RF_05  -  Power - The Eclipse  -  MAMA 2016 Performance
Well, in the Ely’XiOn clips we see images of a lot of the members running towards a door where they meet Kai in that hallway right? Well, a few members act a little differently - most prominently, Chanyeol.
Tumblr media
We see Chanyeol in a room on fire, just sitting there. In fact, Kai has to actually enter Chanyeol’s space in order to save him.
Tumblr media
This is the only time we see Kai actually enter one of the member’s rooms (IIRC). And what I think to be the most important thing is what happens before this sequence.
Tumblr media
Chanyeol is dreaming of fire.
Tumblr media
And then he wakes up to find him room set on fire. His dream became his reality.
I then decided I had to look more into Chanyeol in particular, and by doing so come to realise some pretty odd characteristics of him throughout a lot of MVs and teasers.
The most obvious question about Chanyeol that I’ve never seen answered, or really come up with an answer for myself, is his curious red eye in the Power MV.
Tumblr media
Now this is not the only time we’ve seen an EXO member with red eyes. Both Kris and Luhan in the Wolf/Growl drama MV and teaser have red eyes at different points:
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
And if we count Lay’s solo, he has a red eye in Lose Control:
Tumblr media
But what’s different about Chanyeol’s red eye in Power is that it’s consistent. The others appear to transition into getting red eyes when they’re angry, or showing great emotion. And it’s always linked to using their power as well - not in Power. Chanyeol just has a red eye.
We see other moments where Chanyeol’s eyes are pointed out as a thing of significance. One major moment is in the teaser for Electric Kiss.
Tumblr media
This moment is followed by a pretty intense sequence where Chanyeol is screaming, sparks are flying, and he suddenly spout wings. Not the first time chaos erupts around him.
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
Another interesting thing about Chanyeol is his tendency to cover just one eye. This is very evident in the Monster/Lucky One promo pics;
Tumblr media
And also in Coming Over.
Tumblr media
Which I think is a really interesting point because it’s showing the camera in place of his eye. This could be interpreted as him being the infamous spy, but I don’t think so. I think it’s showing how he’s being controlled and blinded by the Red Forces into believing these dreams are really reality. Another thing we see often with Chanyeol is him sleeping and subsequently waking up...
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
Showing he’s always in a dream - even when he wakes up he’s still in a dream. Other members are shown dreaming, and waking up sometimes, but none with the same frequency as Chanyeol. And I think it’s somehow connected to Lotto, and Baekhyun.
Tumblr media
Chanyeol for some reason plays a pivotal role in Lotto. Even though he’s not in the MV as much as you might want, every scene with him is crucial. The biggest part he plays is the girl’s rescuer.
Tumblr media
I think this is important, because this role ultimately leads to Chanyeol’s capture by the police.
Tumblr media
Now, although the other members fight with the police in ths MV we only see Chanyeol ending up in custody at the end of the video. I think this is symbolic of him becoming entrapped by the dream like realities that the members are relentlessly put under.
But why Chanyeol? Why out of everybody would he be blinded by the reality of dreams? I think this is because of Baekhyun. Baekhyun’s power is light; light blinds. In Part 4 (x) I went over the idea that I had that Chanyeol was kind of shielding Baekhyun’s power from the Red Forces, and that’s why we get things like this:
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
And this could too explain why Chanyeol has these weird outbursts where his power seems to overwhelm him - it’s becoming confused within himself what his true power is and so it’s just erupting from him in these manic ways.
So this red eye in Power could be showing the long term effects of covering for Baekhyun, and showing how he’s been blinded by the dreams forced upon by the Red Forces...
Tumblr media
Anyways just food for thought! ^^

me and @yooyeonseok-l​ always talk and speculate over the new exo comebacks and the theories so here’s hers and my takes on it
the maze is actually a diamond, the maze we see is a base. The elevators we saw in coming over, (maybe even what the doors in lucky one that kyungsoo and lay were being taken into could be)

it goes up to the top of the tip of the diamond.

I found this when I google searched diamonds
Tumblr media
And then noticed how the off girdle has a square in it, like the cube from tempo
Tumblr media
From there, liz pointed out the backgrounds in the mvs
That appeared like diamonds

EXO THEORY - the true behind exoplanet
NOTE: Primeiro de tudo essa teoria foi feita por mim, ou seja, nada do que está aqui é confirmado, são apenas as minhas interpretações sobre os acontecimentos. Comecei essa teoria desde o EX’ACT junto com alguns amigos, e depois dos acontecimentos recentes envolvendo EXO e os eclipses me pediram pra vir fazer isso, então cá estou eu. Ninguém é obrigado a concordar com as coisas que vou dizer, por isso a ASK está aberta pros seus pontos de vista sobre teoria, seja para complementar ou discordar.
Feito de fã para fã
CAPÍTULO 1: O COMEÇO DE TUDO 
O que simboliza mais o começo de um grupo que o DEBUT?  É com os teasers de debut do EXO que começaremos nossa jornada. Todos acharam na época os 23 teasers soltados (você pode ter acesso a playlist dos teasers aqui), era muito e pouca informação ao mesmo tempo pra conseguir entender as mensagens passadas através dos mesmos. 
Dos 23 soltados eu escolhi focar mais nos respectivos: 1 - 8 - 9 - 11 - 15 -16 - 17 - 19 - 20. 
O motivo não é tão especial, eu fiz isso pois preferi dar certezas em alguns do que tentar incluir todos e acabar inventando coisa só pra “encher a linguiça”, já que a maior parte dos outros teasers são os meninos apenas dançando.
Antes de começarmos a teorizar, queria deixar claro que os eclipses sempre estiveram muito presentes no EXO, e que eles vão ser pontos cruciais para entender a teoria. 
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
imagens cr. karuisoo
Todos os MVs do EXO foram publicados em dia e mês que já houve ou houverá eclipses. Isso mostra como os eclipses são tão importantes pra história do EXO. 
Enfim, respirem fundo, vamos começar!
Tumblr media
KAI em chines significa OPEN/OPENING THE WAY. Kai foi o primeiro membro a ser apresentado (não só nos teasers debut, mas também em pathcodes e os teasers de KOKOBOP) e também o primeiro a chegar a sair do EXOPLANET e chegar a Terra. Ele abriu o caminho para que os outros membros pudessem vir também. A passagem do tempo de Kai na Terra antes que os outros membros chegassem é longa. Isso é claramente demonstrado pelos carros atrás de si, nos dando uma ideia de quando ele chegou aqui e de como ele ficou tanto tempo sem os outros membros. 
Tumblr media
Os teasers para fazerem sentido não seguem um ordem crescente no caso a ordem em que foram postados. Mas por hora, vamos para o nosso segundo teaser listado: TEASER 8.
Tumblr media
Até então eu não tinha entendido o porque dos eclipses dos teasers, ou o significado dos mesmos, mas ao focar mais nesse teaser em específico (onde o primeiro eclipse apareceu) eu cheguei a uma conclusão: os eclipses representam a chegada dos membros na terra. 
Confuso? Bom, vou explicar:- ajuda se vocês verem os teasers junto com as explicações -  A palavra eclipse tem origem no grego ékleipsis, que indicava o ato de sair ou não aparecer em algum lugar. O ato de SAIR do EXOPLANET e CHEGAR na Terra é remetido através do eclipse, e é assim que os membros sabem quando outro chega/sai (bom a questão da saída da Terra eu vou abordar mais pra frente com os pathcodes). 
Sehun em seu teaser parece confuso e um tanto quanto desesperado, porque ele soube que teria que ir em busca dos outros membros quando os mesmos chegassem. Ele também é o primeiro a entender o significado dos eclipses, antes mesmo que Kai. O eclipse nesse teaser, portanto, representa a chegada de um novo membro na terra: Luhan. 
Tumblr media
Sehun e Luhan estão procurando por algo, mais especificamente por alguém, o membro que está por vir. O fato do Sehun ter esse instinto de sair em busca dos membros de se certificar sobre eles vai ser importante para entendermos o pathcode, pois bem, lembre-se disso.
Eu não sabia como afirmar a ordem de chegada de cada membro depois de Luhan, mas quem tanto procura uma hora acha. Em cada teaser dos eclipses tem uma dica do próximo membro, é bem sutil, mas ela está lá. 
Um pouco antes do eclipse se completar é mostrado um relógio 
Tumblr media
Relógio… Tempo… Controle do tempo… Isso lembra vocês de alguém? Controle do tempo é o poder de Tao, e é por isso que ele é o membro que está a chegar na Terra.  Sei que parece besteira e vocês podem estar pensando que é apenas um relógio qualquer, mas acreditem em mim, as outras dicas vão fazer mais sentido, dando a nós uma ordem plausível de chegada. 
Tumblr media
Como eu disse a chegada dos membros não segue exatamente a ordem de postagem dos teasers. Não há muito o que se falar sobre esse teaser do Tao. É a terceira vez que que o eclipse aparece (Já que os eclipses que representam a chegada de Kai e Sehun não foram mostrados) 
Pra ser sincera, ao ver esse vídeo eu já estava achando que minha suposição de ter dicas sobre cada membro que viria era balela, já que não tinha nada que mostrasse qual membro seria. Mas só parecia não ter nada mesmo. 
Tao nesse teaser luta contra alguns caras mascarados. Quando eu penso em luta a primeira coisa que me vem a cabeça são pessoas que acabaram por se machucar. Só o machucado pode ser curado, não tem como curar algo que esteja bem. Lay tem o poder de cura, e ele é o nosso 5 membro a chegar na Terra.
Tumblr media
Vocês estavam esperando que agora fosse o teaser do Lay certo? Bem… Desculpa decepcionar, mas os teasers mesmo em ordem não seguem uma ordem contínua. Calma, deixa eu explicar melhor. 
Como eu disse, tudo apontava que assim como ocorreu anteriormente, o teaser que tem o eclipse que o Lay presencia seria o próximo, mas a nos teasers realizados “buracos” na cronologia, onde 1 ou 2 acontecimentos não são mostrados, mas isso não afeta em nada então não há porque se importar tanto com isso.
Tal buraco que me refiro é que não há exatamente a retratação de um eclipse que mostre a chegada do D.O e Suho, mas de qualquer maneira o eclipse aconteceu (os eclipses do Kai e Sehun também não foram mostrados e isso não torna a teoria menos coerente)
Mas enfim, foco no teaser 16. D.O e Suho chegaram juntos em um só eclipse. O lugar que eles estão é um lugar repleto de Terra (poder do D.O) e Água (poder do Suho), esses dois elementos - terra e água - estão juntos em um só lugar o que me faz ter certeza de que chegaram juntos em um só eclipse. 
No teaser o D.O ta empinando/soltando seja lá qual é o jeito que você fala onde mora uma pipa. Teoricamente a pipa está voando. Voo… poder do Kris… Ah, vocês já entenderam como funciona. 
Kris é o nosso próximo membro a chegar, nosso 8° membro. 
Tumblr media
Não há nada de relevante para falar desse teaser. Não há dicas do próximo membro (apesar de ser óbvio qual será o próximo, acredito que seja por isso que não fizeram questão de colocar alguma)
Não irei me prolongar aqui, apenas direi que o próximo membro que o eclipse aqui retrata é o Xiumin. Vocês vão entender o porque assim que eu terminar de falar sobre os teasers que nos resta: 11, 19, 20.
Tumblr media
Assim como D.O e Suho mais uma vez dois membros chegaram juntos: Baekhyun e Chen. Não falo isso só porque eles foram apresentados pela primeira vez como membros do EXO juntos, mas sim por causa de coisas que aparecem nesse teaser que me fazem chegar a essa conclusão
Kai e Xiumin não estão fugindo dos carros (como eu já cheguei a pensar um dia) dentro dos carros estão os outros membros, e todos estão correndo para ver o eclipse acontecer.
Nos exatos 0:35 / 0:36 do teaser a luz dos faróis piscam, e se você for pensar fora da caixinha, lembra o “movimento” que um raio faria. Luz (poder do Baekhyun). Raio/Relâmpago (poder do Chen). Nossos 10° e 11° membros chegaram a Terra. 
Tumblr media
Chegamos ao nosso penúltimo teaser. Não tem muito o que falar sobre ele também, já que tão próximo do fim muitas coisas eu já expliquei, então bora direto pro sinal de quem será o próximo membro. 
Obviamente será o Chanyeol já que ele é o último restante, mas de qualquer forma, aqui está o porque de eu achar que o eclipse que acontece nesse teaser 19 é para o Chanyeol e não para qualquer outro membro. 
Lay é o primeiro a notar que o eclipse está acontecendo e chama o Baekhyun e Chen para ver - já que ele é mais experiente devido ao fato que chegou a mais tempo que os dois -. 
Tumblr media
Assim como no teaser de Luhan e Sehun (teaser 9) no momento que está ocorrendo o eclipse a câmera foca em um objeto, no caso deste vídeo, em uma chalera fervendo (fogo). Fogo é o poder de Chanyeol, por isso sei que o eclipse em questão é sobre a chegada de Chanyeol a terra. 
Tumblr media
Nosso último teaser e nosso último membro. Chanyeol além de ter sido o último membro a ser apresentado, chego a Terra, também é o final do primeiro capítulo da minha teoria. 
Acho que o que vocês mais vão se perguntar agora é: “se o Chanyeol é o último membro a chegr por que acontece um eclipse no teaser dele?” 
O fogo em muitas culturas representa “o fim” o “final” (obrigada ao Gabriel por isso) logo o Chanyeol representará o fim dessa jornada de chegada dos meninos. 
Bom, agora sobre o eclipse. Chanyeol se mostrou muito ciente de conhecimento quando achou a pedra com o simbolo de Suho (mais uma vez me provando que D.O e Suho chegaram juntos pois pedra = D.O, simbolo da água = Suho)
Tumblr media
Com o mesmo simbolo anotado em seu caderno, digamos que Chanyeol fez sua lição de casa, pesquisando e tentando entender sobre o que aconteceu e o que iria acontecer mesmo antes de chegar a Terra. Chanyeol conhecia tanto que ele acabou por chegar antes mesmo do seu eclipse acontecer. Sim, o eclipse retratado no teaser do Chanyeol é da chegada dele mesmo, podendo presenciar seu próprio eclipse. E é assim que concluo o primeiro capítulo da minha teoria e a ordem de chegada: Kai, Sehun, Luhan, Tao, Yixing, D.O e Suho, Kris, Xiumin, Baekhyun e Chen, Chanyeol. 
Pode parecer meio desnecessário toda essa falação só pra explicar qual membro chegou por último e qual não, MAS como eu disse, muita coisa aqui vai poder ser usada para explicar coisas que virão como por exemplo os PATHCODES, então sim, foi necessário. 
Muita coisa ainda tem que ser explicada, então vamos lá para o nosso próximo capítulo. Preparados? 
CAPÍTULO 2:
(isto será removido/editado futuramente: o segundo capítulo da teoria sairá esse final de semana)

My Theory of the Timeline and the Entire Plot of Exo.
Tumblr media
Ok so, this took me a lot of hours to revise and put together. Aka I have no life lol. It’s a long one but its so wild, I’m still shaking after writing this. Sit you should proabld probably sit down for this one. Remember, this is only a theory!! 
Alright, let me explain why I think Mama is near the end of this timeline.
The narrative in the intro of Mama is key.
“When the skies and the grounds were one, the legends, through their twelve forces, nurtured the tree of life. An eye of red force created the evil which coveted the heart of tree of life, and the heart slowly grew dry. To tend and embrace the heart of tree of life, the legends hereby divide the tree in half and hide each side. Hence, time is over-turned and space turns askew. The twelve forces divide into two and create two suns that look alike into two worlds that seem alike. The legends travel apart. The legends shall now see the same sky but shall stand on different grounds, shall stand on the same ground but shall see different skies. The day the grounds be kept a single file before one sky in two worlds that seem alike, the legends will greet each other. The day the red force is purified, the twelve forces will reunite into one perfect root, a new world shall open up.”
Let’s skip Lucky One and Monster for now.
My theory is that Wolf/Growl was first.
It says “When the skies and the grounds were one, the legends, through their twelve forces, nurtured the tree of life.” In Wolf drama if you noticed, is the only one where they are all together being normal and nothing bad has happened. As you see them laughing and playing. Then, for the first time we see the girl being introduced. The girl is the Tree of Life. Bear with me. She represents love. As it says in the narration, they nurtured her (love) and are seen always there and protecting her. 
Hmm what’s our fandom name again? Exo-L. Exo Love. This girl, as cheesy as it could be, represents us. Our name didn’t come out of the blue. We’ll get back to this.
Suddenly, A gang of guys took the girl. “An eye of red force created the evil which coveted the heart of tree of life, and the heart slowly grew dry.”
Coveted - Yearn to possess or have.
The heart of love was tainted by some evil. Something inside of them. (We’ll get to that later) As you see Luhan changing because of it. I think Kris who in the beginning confronted Luhan. Had the evil. As you see how he targeted Luhan first and Luhan became possessed and evil. But the Tree of life (the girl aka love aka Us) helped him back to his normal self. We are what helps them be Exo. Remember they always say “We wouldnt be Exo without Exo-L” Not only is this endearing and shows us they love us, it also fits to the story. We are a part of this plot. (This does not mean Exo doesnt actually mean what they say, it just goes with the plot of what they already feel about us.) SM made us trees smh. Haha
Next. “To tend and embrace the heart of tree of life, the legends hereby divide the tree in half and hide each side.” Now that they know that love is vulnerable to attack. They each take a piece of it and go separate ways to hide it.
This is where the parallels come to life. They hid in different dimensions. “Hence, time is over-turned and space turns askew. The twelve forces divide into two and create two suns that look alike into two worlds that seem alike. The legends travel apart. The legends shall now see the same sky but shall stand on different grounds, shall stand on the same ground but shall see different skies.”
Now that they are hidden, they try to live normally. As you can see in Miracles in December they miss the girl who is gone who they cant see anymore. As it shows them all waiting for her. It also shows Kris regretting himself like he didn’t want to be evil and returns to his normal self because he misses the girl(love). Then an eclipse, which represents the parallel universes, occurs.
Tao is also important here in MID. You see all the members look up and see the eclipse. Then you see him returning time. He wants to go back to where they were with the girl. Besides Exo, you see other people there and everyone starts walking backwards. But the girl who steps in front of Sehun, is walking forward. Which is hinting that if the timeline is everything going backwards and Wolf is first in the story, it would make sense for the girl to be walking forward. Because if Tao returns time normally it would show her leaving.
Sing for you. It shows them missing the other members who are not part of the parallel they are in. It shows some fighting which represents them struggling from inside. (again get to that later) The whale is reference to the 52 hertz Whale which is the loneliest whale in the world. They are alone.You see members coming and disappearing. Always leaving one all alone. Also MID and SFY can be connected because they both happen while its snowing.
Then Overdose.
Overdose is all symbolic. The sadness and loneliness of absent love is too much. Love became an addiction. Something they need, so much like an overdose. So they decided to get back together. The Maze is them trying to find each other again. Since they are in different dimensions, they are only meeting up at these mirror like barriers.
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
Kris and Luhan get lost deep in the parallels getting stuck.
Ok this is where it gets a bit scary.
Now since Sm didn’t plan for Kris and Luhan to leave and assuming they had this story since way before debut. They didn’t think the 12 would break. So when they left, they twisted everything they already have. The narrative was originally (and still) is that the “red force” can come from within the 12. The red force also is the “government” (we’ll call it that for now) which represents evil. But 2 of the memebrs left after overdose before they can explain the red force within. So it was convinient for them that in wolf Kris and Luhan were chosen as leads. Or maybe, they knew just a little bit before wolf that they wanted to leave and made Kris and Luhan leads just in case. But we will never know. Anyway. Sm then made them “getting lost in the maze” for now. So it seems they got lost.
Now if you see during Overdose. Kyungsoo picks up a box. And opens it. This is the key to what’s happening now. The box represents Pandora’s box.
Tumblr media
He opens the parrallels and somehow makes it so the worlds can now be one. So that they can all come together. But that means that now the red forces can now find them.
Pathcodes. This era is them coming back together. The “government” is chasing and hunting them (aka the red forces). You see Chen reading a book that says overdose (remember overdose is all symbolic they weren’t literally in a maze) hinting that he was studying trying to figure out how to get back.
Remember this tweet.
Tumblr media
This has to do with the time line. Both overall and pathcodes. The beginning is not necessarily the start, it can be the end. So if we take that to account then the first Pathcodes in sequence is Kyungoo’s. Kyungsoo is important. He represents the strength of the group. His power is not a coincidence. During wolf he was seen beat up by Luhan who was possesed by the evil. Everyone got upset and even fought Luhan. When they all separated into dimensions. If you notice, he is the only one constantly shown driving. Sing For you, LMR, his Pathcode etc. Like he’s knows he is the only one that can connect the group because he was the one who emotionally connected them in the beginning. Their strength.
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
In his Pathcode it shows him suddenly opening windows and going downstairs, because he figured how to unite everyone. At one point he looks into a door and suddenly all the Pathcodes flash across the screen. Like Kyungsoo saw, opened and united the parallels. You see this represented when he lets the balls in his hands fall and unite with the others. It’s like hes the overseeing eyes. They always showing his eyes in the rear view mirror looking back. And who is in the back seat? His memebers as seen in Sing For You. 
Now everything falls like a domino effect. Like Pandoras box.
That’s when everyone feels something odd. They were in their different lives/parallels when suddenly they felt it. The parallels becoming one. Which we all know they love to promote. “We are one” referencing them coming together as one. Then you see them panicking and their powers suddenly coming back and out of control. Because it’s been a long time since they used them. A little rusty.
They each act differently. Some confused, some calm and some scared. Because now that they are coming in one world, the red force can take them down. “The day the grounds be kept a single file before one sky in two worlds that seem alike, the legends will greet each other.”
Pathcode in order.
D.O Lay Baekhyun Chen Suho Sehun Xiumin Chanyeol Tao Kai
So as you go down the Pathcodes, some are already being contacted by Kyungsoo. And being warned. Like the message Baek, Kai, and Suho recieved etc. Kai and Suho seem relaxed in a way because they were contacted in time and were prepared or seem troubled by the knowledge (Kai’s phone text and Suho’s ringing phone.) But baek was contacted when in the middle of being stalked so he didn’t have much time to react.
Now Sehuns Pathcode. You see him looking for something. Or someone. As he marks something on the map of his phone. Like he’s tracking. He is actually trying to find Kris and Luhan. Again bear with me. He enters the house and sees 2 kids. The little kids actually do represent Kris and Luhan. The toys floating overhead is Luhans power (telekinesis) and if you look at the first toy Sehun encounters is an airplane toy which represent Kris’s power, flight. 
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
Now this is where SM twisted it. Since Kris and Luhan got lost, they were innocent of what was going on and kinda lost memory. Hence represented as kids. Also the killing resemblances. Everything is there because Sm put it there. Kinda scary. But they are an entertainment company after all.
The kids were staring at the sky before they noticed sehun. Sehun looks at what they were looking at and sees the eclipse and runs out. Again the eclipse represents the parallels, they are collapsing. 
Now this is where Mama intertwines. Mama is happening during Pathcodes. The parallels are slowly being taken down and they are gaining control of their powers. You can see Kai teleporting to each member. Remember in Pathcodes he teleports off to somewhere at the end of his teaser. That’s him teleporting to each member warning them and it’s almost time. This is why Kai is special. Kai is the only one that can traverse the parallels. This is why I think Kyuyngsoo contacts Jongin first. To help warn the others.
Ok hold your pants everyone this is about to get intense. 
If you see Kyungsoo during Mama, oh look, what is that he’s standing by?
Tumblr media
A car.
He upgraded too because time has passed. As you see his car upgrades during the MVS. The car is pretty important as it is literally almost always in thier Mv’s and teasers. 
So all this up til now is reason why it works for them that Mama is further down the timeline. It gives them opportunities to add after and in between without losing the main “12″ Oracle. Like, it gives them a safe gaurd just in case members leave in the future. Which they are infamously know for. So then they don’t lose the story. That’s why when they did leave, its no coincidence that they added the kids in Sehuns pathcode. The two kids represents them. Saying that they too saw the eclipse and met up with everyone in Mama. God I’m so terrified of Sm lol.
Now Call Me Baby comes. Yes CMB. They now have met as you see them riding into a garage with cars and all getting together. So now they preparing to fight the red forces. This is the present. This is where we are in the timeline.
Ok where is Lucky One and Monster come into play? 
Easy. Just like they said, it’s the origin. The beginning. Beginning=End. End=Beginning. The reason everything is what it is. 
Could be two things 
Yes, they are aliens and were immediately captured and they were exterminated on. 
Or, they were created. And that is the reason why they are what they are. Remember “An eye of red force created the evil which coveted the heart of tree of life” 
Remember how I said that the red force can come from inside the group? Maybe they planted the evil inside them while they experimented on them (aka that black serum shown in Lucky One teaser.) Hence why Kris had turned and then Luhan turned. Also why they fought in Sing For You and struggled with themselves in Growl. 
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
Also another thing, ready?
Lucky One and Monster is not on earth. This actually takes place on their home planet. Notice it looks very futuristic and not at all earthly. Including their clothes and the “nurses”. This is how they were created on Exo Planet. Everyhting down to their numbers. Which are their subject numbers. 
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
This is where Love Me Right (Korean, Chinese and Japanese) comes in. It’s them during experimention. They are shown locked up in rooms, having acid trips, always running trying to find an exit (all the doors), like everything is dream. Like Alice and Wonderland. Which is the main theme of LMR and we already know was hinted a lot. 
“If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn't be. And what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?” - Alice In Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
Also they are together and on a “team” because it represents that they are creating the need to be connected as one.
Tumblr media

If you look closely at the Japanese version. They look like they are being monitored. It shows them trying to complete tasks and showing if they failed or succeeded. Like they were being put through tests. There’s even test tubes on the ping pong table.
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
Now the only thing that confused me are the dates they show in the Japanese ver. If you recall 52 is a reoccurring number. Sing for you with the 52 hertz whale, in Exoluxion vcr, the number 52 and in Exodus they mentioned 1952.
Tumblr media
But in the Japanese mv it says 2015. Now I think this is because either if 2 things. Since they are acid tripping/dreaming they have no sense of time. Again since SM had that safe gaurd, when Tao left, it let SM have the opportunity to make an excuse why Tao left. His power is time, he is gone which means no time. Some more twisting. Where Tao managed to escape first before anyone. Explaining his absense in LMR. Or 2015 can mean the year on Exo Planet. Remember its an alien planet with different times. 
Tumblr media
Also in Tao’s Pathcode. He is reading a newspaper. It mentions about 10 objects falling from the sky. This could be a article re-mentioning an event that took place back in 1952. Resurfacing the events after Lucky One and Monster. They fell from the sky after escaping their home planet. Hence the angel and demon references. Also why sehuns in space with a whale lol. 
Another floating thought is the car, because it seems its so important. It just keeps appearing and now with the images of it being detroyed. (LMR Japanese ver. its crushed by a weight and now the Monster teaser with it being burned).
