Season 3 of Dark was, unfortunately, the finale of the highly acclaimed show. Netflix has officially canceled the fourth season of the show. Here are some of the facts related to Dark. DO NOT PROCEED UNLESS YOU WANT SPOILERS.
- Why is Priest Noah also called Hanno Tauber?
Meaning “a deaf person”, this name is a reference to Elisabeth ‘s character which is deaf. Once the apocalypse ended, Priest Noah had a relationship with her and was also responsible for making the boys deaf by putting them in the time machine in the 80s.
2. A hint of the presence of a parallel world.
During the pilot episode, Martha signifies that she felt the presence of the alternate universe, even if she does not say the words directly. She informs Jonas that she has déjà vu. “If the world is a simulation, déjà vu is a glitch in the matrix,” Jonas replies. How creepy!
3. The gravestone of Mads has an infinity loop on it, as his body was never found.
The infinity loop is there instead of a date of demise. If you were to give it a thought, it is another clue about the original link between the world of Martha and the world of Jonas, and how they are two never-ending loops.
4. The teacher also provided the first hint about Martha and Jonas’ parallel worlds.
“Symmetry is a special kind of doubling,” the teacher says. As he’s speaking, Franziska passes by the infinity symbol drawn on a chalkboard. This is yet another good foreshadowing of the two mirroring worlds and how the people in those worlds are trapped in a repeating loop of events. How smart were the makers of this show!? No wonder why we couldn’t understand a single thing that was going on.
5. H.G. Tannhaus- what’s in a name?
Clockmaker H.G Tanenhaus has “H.G.” as a reference to the author of “The Time Machine”, H.G. Wells. He is the one who sensationalized the whole idea and the concept of time travel.
6. The hints about the multiple timelines.
When the introductory credits roll on screens, three-mirror image reflections represent the story of Winden in three different timelines, i.e. 1953, 1986, and 2019.
