Please grab some pearls and clutch them, because your mind is about to be blown. A Grease fan theory from Reddit just put a super-sinister spin on everyone's favorite high school musical (no offense, Zac Efron), and nothing will ever be the same. We're just gonna put it bluntly: Sandy is dead.
Let's break this thing down.
1. Grease ends with Sandy and Danny defying the laws of gravity and flying into the sky. We always thought this was the result of directors taking creative liberty (everyone was high off the fumes of good times, after all), but what if Sandy's actually going to heaven?
2. During "Summer Nights," Danny explains to his greaser friends that he saved Sandy's life when "she nearly drowned" on the beach. But what if she did drown, guys? WHAT. IF. (Dun, dun, dunnnn.)
3. The Reddit user speculates that Sandy had a "vivid coma fantasy involving her summer fling with Danny, where they shared a magical year of high school together. The visions get increasingly outlandish as time passes, until finally, as Danny desperately tries to resuscitate her on the beach, she sees herself flying into heaven in her dying moments. The entire movie was a drowning woman's coma fantasy."
But wait, it gets so much better/crazier. Another Reddit user claims that Sandy killed herself at the end of the movie, and the entire school-wide dance scene is her dying thoughts.
"The last line of 'Look at me I'm Sandra Dee (Reprise)' is 'Goodbye to Sandra Dee,'" the theory states. "Everything that happens in the last scene is just a little TOO perfect. Danny and Sandy are back together despite everything, Rizzo SUDDENLY isn't pregnant AND Kenickie suddenly decides that he actually loves her, the geeky kid gets onto the sports team, EVERYTHING is suddenly ok, just the way that sweet, innocent Sandy would have wanted it to be."
Here for this. Here for, just, all of this.
