Wayne Died in the Finale

Hey Guys,

I listen to a few TD3 podcasts, and nobody picked up on what I thought was a pretty clear allegory to Wayne’s death. In the 2nd to last scene, Amelia more or less come to “fetch” him with some dialog that could be interpreted in a few ways, and they disappear into the white door together. This sort of expands the last scene’s meaning … maybe Wayne disappearing into the jungle is his cosmic penance -either purgatory or Hell. Or maybe that is Wayne’s “heaven” … to forever be on the hunt.

Anywho, Great show! Thank you!
