2145: Heists And Escapes
|Heists And Escapes|
Title text: The interactive experience is built on a single theological framework that unites Dante, George R. R. Martin, every major heist movie, and Erin Gloria Ryan's "Kevin is dead" Home Alone theory.

This comic is about various things where people attempt to get in or out. In heists, people are trying to open a vault to steal money or valuable items, and then escape with them.
The top six panels show a stylized version of the various options where people try to get in or out of rooms:
- Escape rooms: In an escape room, people are locked in the room (discounting emergency exits) and have a certain amount of time to solve the puzzles and leave.
- Heist movies: In heist movies, people are outside of the room they are trying to get in to (usually) steal what's inside.
- Home Alone (1990): This refers to the first movie in a franchise, where the home that the villains tried to rob was protected by someone from the inside, Kevin McCallister (also mentioned in the title text).
- The Battle of Winterfell: This refers to the 3rd episode of the 8th season of Game of Thrones. Here the dead tried to enter the keep (the middle room in the picture), but the keep already contained a crypt, with the dead inside who could also try to leave that internal "room" as well.
- Inception (2010): This refers to the movie Inception where the protagonists could not only enter the dream world of others but while in those dreams could continue this again (entering the dream of someone inside the dream, etc.). Inception can be categorized as a "heist" movie, as the main characters are thieves who steal information from the subconscious.
- The Divine Comedy (1320): This refers to Dante's work; in particular its first part Inferno, which depicts Hell as nine concentric circles (although purgatory and paradise are similarly concentric, they are not likely to need to be escaped).
At the end Randall proposes a combination of all of these things, and also combining it with others:
- Truman Show: This refers to a movie, where the protagonist - unknown by him - was living in a constructed reality show.
- Kevin McCallister's house/subconscious: Refers to the 8-year-old boy who is the main character in the movie Home Alone that protects his home from the burglars.
- Styx: Refers to a deity and a river in Greek mythology that forms the boundary between Earth and Underworld ("Hades").
The title text refers to this article, which claims that Kevin McCallister is dead, and is actually a ghost.
