Blair Witch: Season 1

Episode 1

Inventory

Bracelet

This was given to Liam by his father before his passing.

Rosemary says Liam never takes it off, yet it was on his desk with other items the day he went missing.

It has a silver charm of a molar on it.

Interview Transcripts

This helps us start to develop a timeline for the day of Liam Kent's disappearance.

It also reveals that he had the bracelet on while he was at The Silver Moon diner.

Rapinoe mentioned feeling a "presence" and "murmuring" under his floorboards. Andy's Cafe is only 2 stops away, and the museum was built in the 20's.

  • This is most likely where Liam was "hanging out" in the basement.

Letter from Rosemary

This is very reminiscent to Hawthorn Junction.

The police were quick to classify a "15-year-old runaway" as a lost cause. Sounds like small-town police from a horror movie alright.

Liam's Behavioral Record

Andrea Tan describes an altercation between Liam and another student. She poses that Liam suffers from dissociative disorder. 

She also clues in to how to narrow down where Liam was hanging out on the map.

Liam's Notebook

👀 I like the "Black Mirror" design on the outer covers.

Rosemary found this on Liam's desk the day of his disappearance.

It was given to him by Ms. Tam (his counselor) to write to his deceased father.

He talks about being in the basement (??) of a building, where he can walk 2 stops over to get something to eat.

  • Considering he says he needs to walk through the forest to get there, the building must be on the north side of the street shown on the map.
  • If he need only walk 2 stops over for food, he was hanging out at a number of possible buildings: Sheriff's Office (8 on map), McQueen Auto Shop (13 on map), Propriety Goodneighbor Library (16 on map), Burkittsville History Museum (6 on map), or Something Borrowed (20 on map).

I think it's a safe bet to assume Liam was visiting the museum and went to Andy's for food.

  • He mentions wanting to know more history about the forest.
  • Andrea Tan's behavioral report on Liam notes the building he visited was built in the '20s. The museum was built in 1921.

There is secret written code within this notebook written in invisible ink. You must use the black light to reveal the writing.

  • "I HAVE NO IDEA HOW HE FOUND YOUR NOTE, OR HOW HE KNEW TO GIVE IT TO ME, BUT I'M GLAD HE DID."

Magazine Spread

Rosemary found this on Liam's desk the day of his disappearance.

This gives a little history of the "Blair Witch" and even touches on the premise of the movie "The Blair Witch Project". 

Using the black light reveals hidden messages.

Once decoded, the messages read:

  • "MAYBE SHE LIVED? MAYBE SHE'S STILL OUT THERE?"
  • "HOW DOES SHE DECIDE WHO TO CONTROL? WHO TO SPARE?"
  • "THE RULES OF REALITY DON'T APPLY. THE PAST IS ALIVE OUT THERE. MAYBE IT'S NOT CRAZY TO HOPE."
  • "BASEMENT'S"

Map of Burkittsville

This is a map of the small town with a legend at the bottom and little descriptions of the buildings.

This will probably come in handy while trying to find out where Liam was heading and solving his disappearance.

Missing Person Report

Wow, typical press. The sheriff had already said do not ask about the supernatural mumbo jumbo and that's exactly what she kept doing.

Newspaper Article

This article covers the death of Liam's father, Rosemary's husband, Hudson William Kent.

Hudson died to save his son, no wonder Liam was having a hard time dealing with it...

Pen

Rosemary found this on Liam's desk the day of his disappearance.

There is a black light at one end of this pen, and it serves a purpose. 

This pen is pretty cool. 

  • It did not appear to write anything when I scribbled with it to test the ink. I took the pen apart only to realize the ink was "clear"...
  • So I decided to shine the black light on it. Nice! The pen is filled with "invisible" ink for writing secret messages!
