This is the only day you can reblog this.
On this day, May 21st, Philip Wittebane started recording his journey through the Boiling Isles.
"My journey through the Demon Realm is far from over. But today I humbly donate my journal to the ages. Entry One: May 21…I think. My Name is Philip Wittebane."

"...what if you changed! You got so used to eating palismen, you can barely keep your human shape anymore!"
And this is what makes Belos snap at them. His reaction is automatic, at this point, the best way to shut them up for a moment, but then...
Tumblr media
He just ends up proving The Collector right, when he struggles to transform his arm back.

The Owl House has a theme with sacrifice, I’m realizing. 
How it can be Gwendolyn and Camila doing what they thought was best for their kids, even if it accidentally ended up hurting them. Or how it can be Lilith giving up her life’s goal and work in the Emperor’s Coven when she realized all it would do is harm her sister. Or how it can be Alador letting Odalia doing whatever she wants if it means keeping his kids away from it. Or Raine and Eda agreeing to a murder-suicide if it kept everyone alive, and Raine later faking amnesia to keep Eda away from danger. Or Eda repeatedly being ready to give up her magic, her freedom, and her life to keep her kids safe, and how she’s prepared to do it every single time. Amity distancing herself from Willow to ensure her parents stayed far away, Hunter continuing to risk his life for his friends despite knowing death awaited him at the place he once called home, someone caring enough about King to keep him in the safest place they could hope for. 
How it can be Luz risking life and limb for those she loved over and over again without hesitation, always throwing herself into the fray and trying to help people, even if it backfires in her face. How it’s changed her in ways she’ll probably never get back. How it can be Belos killing dozens upon dozens of grimwalkers, of witches and demons, and how he’s planning to kill thousands more, all to ‘save’ humanity. How he’s contorted and destroyed his body all for the sake of the greater good. 
Sacrifice made out of love and care is both a virtue, and a damnation. You give up every part of yourself for a cause, or a person, all in the hope that it’ll be worth it. And sometimes, it’s not. And you have to live with that.

MOTHERFUCKER-
Tumblr media
So THAT’s what this portrait was meant to symbolize! I remember speculating but I never could’ve guessed this... You’ve even got the sun, which represents the Collector/Grand Huntsman!

Tbh I can't wait for Belos's villianous breakdown- you can't tell me it isn't coming soon-
Tumblr media
He's lashing out at the collector (someone weve seen him genuinely at least ATTEMPT to treat like an equal, for over 100 years at this point.)
He's also obviously still sick, I doubt hed fake his symptoms because Collector doesn't seem to have much sympathy in him, even when he's kneeled over they really only care about getting free (fitting for a child.)
Tumblr media
But I'm wondering what it'll be like? Does Belos seem like the type to cry when he realizes his world has changed so much that it's unrecognizable? That he no longer qualifies as a human being?? That his views are largely outdated in the modern world??? He doesn't seem like the SCREAMING melt down type..
I think he's going to crack and start to CRY. Maybe call out for his big brother?

Belos clings to the key around his neck the way you would touch a cross before praying. He's nervous. So nervous.

Outer Belos / Inner Belos
While I'm not saying Outer Belos is more "good" than Inner Belos, but it's clear that the Belos in Hollow Mind is a bit more aggressive and stable with his attacks. Plus, more nonchalant about just simply making another Grimwalker, while the Outer is more adamant on waiting for as long as possible.

Alright, in light of this sequence, it’s Bitching Time With Wig.
If this is indicating what I think it is, it looks, based on this dialogue, like the Collector is getting set up for a betrayal from Belos as well.
Which I fucking despise.
Now I could be wrong. I could very well be wrong, and these are just the anxious thoughts of a chaos entity driven mad with loneliness and worrying about nothing to themselves.
But if this is true. This means that we are supposed to overlook everything the Collector has been a part of. We’re supposed to just brush over the Owl Beast, a living being transformed into a curse by the Collector and bound into a scroll, we’re supposed to overlook the Titan Trappers, who massacred an entire species in dedication to their Grand Huntsman, we’re supposed to ignore the unbridled glee with which they imitate the future deaths of countless witches and demons on the Day of Unity, which they helped to orchestrate.
I really hope the Collector isn’t made out to be “just another victim” in Belos’ machinations. He has shit to answer for too.

I do want to talk about some theories I have to do with King and The Collector, but I need to gather those thoughts into something cohesive first. So, for now, it’s Belos analysis hours! Where I look at Belos and completely miss the point as I overanalyse everything! Woo!
But really, there is something so interesting about the way he acts this episode. It’s so different from how inner Belos acts, and how he’s acted in the past, especially around The Collector.
Tumblr media Tumblr media
His expressions here are, as pointed out by the collector, nervous ones. He doesn’t look eager or completed, rather empty and somewhat hesitant. This is everything he’s worked for, everything he’s dedicated his life to for centuries, and yet he can’t even muster up a smile. He’s tired. He’s nervous. And that can also be seen in the way he grabs onto the key.
Tumblr media
He clutches it tightly to his chest. In the end, he’s still Philip Wittebane, he made this key years ago, and it’s the key home. I pointed out in Hollow Mind how for a brief second Belos’ eyes light up at the sight of the key, and again we see how much it means to him. Clutching things like that is also usually a sign of protectiveness, fear or nerves, and Belos’ emotions tend to be given to us through music cues and also subtle gestures, so that adds up well. Returning home has never seemed so real before, and there are those lingering anxieties that come with it. He doesn’t know what it’s like now. He hasn’t seen green trees in so long. Will he even be able to recognise it?
Tumblr media
After that, we see that The Collector is right on another one of his observations. Belos is struggling to keep his human form. This is just a still image but in the scene you can see his hand shake as he tries to pull it back together. It’s also interesting how the attack is so sudden, so impulsive, almost as if he doesn’t think first, sort of like how he was with Hunter.
The reason that’s odd is because while we’ve only seen Belos interact with The Collector once, we see he has a lot of patience with them and their comments, and he smiles at their company too, seemingly fond. Of course, that could just be an occasional thing for all we know, but I feel like they’d establish that side of their relationship if it was.
As well as this, Belos is generally acting different around them all together. Whether as in the Hollow Mind memory, we see him smile, see him be amused even at The Collector’s suggestion he enjoys killing the Grimwalkers, here he’s visibly annoyed with The Collector - losing his patience.
Tumblr media Tumblr media
Belos waved his hand dismissively at him, and his expressions in general depict annoyance or blankness. It reminds me a lot of how blank Philip’s expressions would become sometimes, but even then Philip would carry on pretending. Here, Belos doesn’t do that. He doesn’t care to.
The Collector’s Grimwalker suggestion is foolish to him which contrasts with how casual Inner Belos is about it. In fact, all this behaviour contrasts with inner Belos even though they’re what? Six days apart. Where Inner Belos is completely devoid of feeling and callous about everything, Belos is wary in his approach and honesty, paired with how his musical theme has changed (it appears to be played with a different instrument but I’m not sure what - not a musician so don’t take my word on this) Belos really does just seem more tired and sad than anything. Hm, I don’t know if sad is necessarily the word actually but my brain is unfortunately scrambled at the moment so no fitting word comes to mind.
Altogether, this really does add up with what he said years ago: “I just need to live long enough to see this through.”

AHEMMM how exactly do you plan on dealing with "this one", Belos? Hm?

The Collector taunting Belos and Belos lashing out had me 👁👁
The Collector had some pretty specific taunts locked and loaded and Philip couldn’t help but lash out at them “what if it’s changed, what if you’ve changed, you can barely hold your human form anymore” those are presumably Philips’ biggest fears that the world he once knew all those hundreds of years ago has changed without him and that he’s changed too much to go back… that he isn’t as human as he used to be and he can’t face the reality that he looks just like the thing that he’s spent his whole life hating and hunting. The sunken cost fallacy is one hell of a drug.

What do you think Belos will do to Luz?
Frankly, I think the most he can do right now is restrain Luz. He isn't the same as he was in Young Blood, Old Souls. He can barely even turn his arm back to normal without struggling and trembling. Heck, he doesn't even look happy, at all. Collector is happier and more playful than he's being. Belos doesn't even smile or look indifferent in that whole scene, just nervous and sad.
I really doubt that this is EVER gonna happen, but it would be so cool if Belos stopped to ask Luz about what has changed about Earth. What has he all missed? What has advanced since he's been gone? The dude has not set foot there in 4 centuries and Luz would be his only way of knowing.
Look at him
Tumblr media
Philly Cheesesteak looks so depressed and scared for a guy that has "eyes everywhere". I think it would be odd if he passed up the opportunity for information.
