Fresh Prince of Bel-Air
Theory: Will is actually dead, and the entire show is his journey through the afterlife.
Think about it: What if Will had died in that scuffle in West Philly? The cab ride to his Uncle Phil’s is actually his journey to heaven, and the show is about Will coming to terms with the end of his life. This theory also suggests that’s why Will’s parents show up only a handful of times: They’re visiting their son’s grave.
Theory: Ben predicted Monica and Chandler’s relationship in season three.
In “The One with the Giant Poking Device,” Monica accidentally bangs Ben’s head against the wall. He has a small bump on his head, and she gets nervous Ross will see it and hate her. Then Ben outs her mistake by saying “Monica bang” repeatedly. But watching this episode recently, I wondered if maybe he was foreshadowing and saying “Monica Bing.” One quick Google search later, I see I’m not the first person to think this. Take a look and decide for yourself.
Boy Meets World
Theory: The characters are just pawns in a larger Illuminati chess match.
To be clear, this dedicated Tumblr makes the distinction that the actors themselves aren’t in the Illuminati. Rather, their characters are used as propaganda. See: Topanga making triangles above her head, I guess.
Theory: Danny isn’t the biological father of his children.
This site explains that Danny and Pam would have had, at best, a “1 in 6 chance” of producing three blond children, given Pam’s Greek background and Danny’s brunette genes. But you know who’s blond and also remarkably attached to those kids? Joey. Basically the theory here is that Uncle Joey is not an uncle at all.
Theory: Tim Taylor is actually Jesus Christ.
One redditor draws a strong comparison to the fact that Tim is a carpenter who doles out morality lessons and speaks to a neighbor we can’t fully see. This neighbor often advises him. So Wilson is God, and Tim is Jesus maybe?
