I had a dream last night that Stanley was confirmed. Like, in the dream, The Mystery of Gravity Falls (TMOGF) released a scene from one of the later episodes of season two and it was of Stanford in the bunker below the Shack.
While he was in there, the percentage on the scanner (for the portal) was at, like, 98.9% completion, and Stan was panicking that he wouldn’t find what he wanted. He started crying and got frustrated and said, “Well, who cares if I find him or not! It’s not like I didn’t try…”
So Stanford waits and waits and then, finally, with the buffering speed of Internet Explorer, the portal finishes it’s scanning. Stanford’s all depressed, because the portal didn’t seem to find “him”, but then he turns around, gives it one last look, and realizes that the very last sector scanned was read positive for the ‘him’ he was looking for.
Stanford freaks out and punches in the coordinates for that sector into the control panel and the machine starts to react. Then the portal’s ghostly blue light faded and what was left behind was a fuzzy figure and the fuzzy figure said, “Brother, is that you?”
And then the dream ended.
