Sock Opera provided one of the biggest fan fav moments of Gravity Falls when Bill Cipher possessed Dipper Pines after deceiving him in a deal, a possession commonly referred to as "Bipper." However years later, we noticed that a revelation from Journal 3 wasn't as discussed as it could be: Bill Cipher's original sinister plan after he gained Ford's journal in the episode!

Pain is hilarious! and since "Bipper" is always smiling we can imagine that Bill is always smiling which makes him that much more creepy and you can hear it in his voice as well just hear your voice between frowning and smiling and you'll see what I mean and with his attitude he tries to play it off as a friend, a deal maker, a harmless little bet before moving off to the next stages of his twisted plans

The original story to Sock Opera-according to some parts of the fandom-was literally Bill killing Mabel, giving Dipper his body back then letting Dipper see what Bill had done. Then he jumps off the support beams in guilt. Then again, this is just a rumor I heard-obviously it's WAY different, as said with the note Bill left.

For those of you who wanted to see what would've happened the plot and lore of GF if Dipper's body died, remember this... This is supposedly a kid show, if any kid saw a death/suicide like that on screen they could be possibly traumatized and GF could be banned.

I wonder what would happen if his plan did work... dipper would be stuck in the mindscape with Bill and his crew/ ford may of may not have been there. Would Bill continue to torment Dipper or would he comfort him, since he has mainly only show. Negative emotion recalling what it was like me stuck there and the realization Dipper now is just like them. Would they become team mates over time as dipper realizes Bill is the only person there and it’s better than being absolutely alone, or would he continue to live in torment, trying to take down Bill in his own realm and maybe being trapped away by Bill since he’s obviously more powerful?

(No ship intended--) I really wish Bipper made another appearance in Gravity Falls, maybe Bill could have had a better chance at spreading madness if he held Dippers body hostage. Plus we probably could have gotten a real reaction out of Stan, Ford especially and a possible serious reaction out of Mabel. Considering she's seen him like that before. qwq

So the Dipper killing hosts bit was interesting to me I've heard from that people who astral project (like from Insidious) that the only way to permanently stay in the astral plane is for your physical body to die. I think that's what Bill was referring to when he talked about throwing Dipper's body off the water tower. He would kill him to permanently trap him in the mind 'scape, aka the astral plane. So Dipper would've been stuck there forever as a spirit

Did anyone ever peep that when Bill was trying to convince Stanford to enter his mind in Weirmageddon, he turns into stone. He offers his hand, and turns to stone if accepted. Which is why he reverts back when Stanford replies never. But how do we find Bill? As a rock statue, just like in the show, with his hand stretched out, as if he just shook hands with someone. Going back to MatPat’s theory that Gruncle Stan is possessed by Bill, it’s fairly plausible that Bill told Stan he’ll lose his memories, and promised to return them right after, if he just shook his hand. Obviously Stan knew the consequences of the memory gun, and knew the dangers of Bill, so Bill’s proposal had to be very good, and very underwhelming for Stan to agree. Like Bill will never hurt Stan’s family again. I’m not sure yet, but I’m 100% sure Bill is alive, and NOT reincarnated as King or anything like that.

People ignore Mabel's sacrifice in this episode because at the end Mabel "dodged a bullet", but then claim Dipper giving up his job at the pool in "The Deep End" was a big sacrifice even though it turns out Wendy (the only reason he wanted the job in the first place) had already been fired shortly before he was.

See the question for me is if you wrote that note and then left it so that Mabel would find it just in time or just too late if he won, or because he knew he would be defeated and he wanted to creep Mabel out? Because really also why write that? Why risk it? Why leave it in the car? And to address it to her basically..

sasamichan Ай мурун
it would be a fun alternate plot but it would have saved fans from hatting Mabel if Mabel wasn't so obsessed with puppets that she didn't notice. maybe have a story where Mabel gives up the puppets to shadow Dipper and solve the mystery then both Twins end up on the water tower as Bipper tries to jump off with Mabel. and have every one else insisting Mabel not worry and stop seeing things.

Throwing Bipper off the water tower isn't really much of a plan. Feels underqhelming and it would have emphasiszed the limita of Bill's powers and revealed the extent of his plans premptively. It is also a really dumb idea, especially for the manipulative Cipher. It is an uncharacteristically impulsive thing for Bill to do, but an excellent way to toy with Mabel, which is just the kind of thing Bill would have done.
