    This Mind-Blowing Theory About The Son From "Us" Will Change The Way You See The Whole Movie

    I'm going to watch this again immediately.

    If you're anything like me, you've probably spent every night since you saw Jordan Peele's new movie Us lying awake, half because you're terrified, and half because you can't stop thinking about all the questions it left unanswered.

    Of course, since the movie came out, the internet has been overrun with discussions of hidden details and fan theories that may explain the movie's craziness.

    I feel like it's obvious, but if not, here's your fair warning: 🚨🚨🚨 THIS POST WILL CONTAIN A LOT OF SPOILERS FOR JORDAN PEELE'S US (2019). PROCEED AT YOUR OWN RISK. 🚨🚨🚨

    Today we are here to explore a fan theory focusing on Jason — the young son of the family at the centre of Us — and his doppelgänger (or tether), who's known as Pluto.

    If you've seen the movie, you'll know it ends with the revelation that Adelaide — played by Lupita Nyong'o — isn't who we thought she was.

    "I believe the summer before the movie takes place," writes Reddit user hoopsterben, "the boy and his 'tethered' also switched places."

    If you're not quite convinced yet, allow the internet to provide you with some evidence.

    We also know the tethered were created as a sort of experiment intended to control the humans living above ground.

    The main evidence for the theory, however, comes from the exceedingly creepy final shot of Adelaide and Jason exchanging looks while driving away from their nightmare vacation in Santa Cruz.

    Whether this theory is true or not, I think we can all agree that it's totally wild — and I'll be watching the movie a million more times to see what else I can pick up.
