This "Titanic" Theory Might Explain Why Rose Wouldn't Let Jack On The Board With Her At The End

Remember: It's just a thought.

Posted on

It's 2017 and there are certain things that we as a species have come to accept as factual: The sun is hot, water is wet, and Carly Rae Jepsen is the most criminally underrated songstress of our generation. But what if I told you certain things we claim to "know" might not necessarily be true?

Instead, the romantic, lovable lead is merely a figment of Rose's imagination, which she invents during a psychotic episode in order to distract her from her insufferable reality as an upper-class woman.

The theory suggests that Jack is a projection of Rose's subconscious that appears at the perfect moment to save her and to help her realize her independence. He even tells Rose, "You're gonna die if you don't break free."

And then there is the fact that this guy says no record exists of Jack being on the Titanic.

The bearded treasure hunter tells Rose, "We never found anything on Jack. There's no record of him at all."

When 101-year-old Rose hears this, she responds cryptically with "No, there wouldn't be, would there. ... He exists now only in my memory."

Which certainly incites the question of whether or not Jack ever existed anywhere other than in Rose's mind/memory.

So there you have it, folks — all the information you need to make an informed decision. What do you think?
