Gracie Il y a jour
If the keeper didn't report anything weird during those two weeks, I wonder if the principal keeper paid him to not say anything and then murdered the other two. Since he had asked just before arriving at the lighthouse with the others whether they could do an experiment to see how long it would take someone to get there between the thing being reported and them actually investigating. Since it was denied, maybe he opted to just bribe the keeper to keep silent. Since he wanted to know how long it would take for someone to come investigating, maybe he was planning out how long he'd have from the time he'd stop turning on the light (leaving the island) until someone would start looking for him. The journal said he was quiet, so what if he was just nervous about his plans. He could have drugged the other two which made them hallucinate and see the storm. Perhaps he was conducting some sort of experiment, and then killed them and left somehow, maybe by having some sort of accomplice pick him up or something.

Theory I just came up with in my head while watching this: what if they were the victims of piracy (potentially kidnapped) and it was done in collusion with the gamekeeper (maybe him keeping quiet in return for money)?

The Gamekeeper is suspicious. I mean you just don’t see the light for 2 weeks and do nothing? Honestly wouldn’t it make sense that he could have went to the lighthouse and killed them, had 2 weeks of time to clean up and dispose of them somewhere else? No motive to speak of from my perspective, but I have questions about that

I know what happened on that island, it is obvious. That were taken by the Alien seaking. Who was working for the illuminati, to make a arme of dolphins to take over the world in 2020. All of this was set in place, by the hand of a time travling shakespear, in case People should start believing that he did not write his own books.

Why does Ryan say a wave was not likely when he mentioned that the Buoy was missing that was 110 ft high by non human interaction. And also no mention of suicide? Low morale, this is one of the most likely things it could be.

Feels eerily like the story of the film Apostle. A deity watches over a barren island trading blood sacrifice for the fertility of the soil. Maybe that's why the grass has strange properties. The watchmen were taken.

This case is solved. Three lighthouse residents came upon a person that was washed up onto shore from a storm. The person had a box full of gold with him. When the gold didnt get to its rightful destination. The owner came looking for the gold. He recognized the boat his friend was using and started asking questions. Noticed the three were lying and killed them all. (Look up "THE VANISHING")
