    After seeing the thumbnail, I thought it was some dark Christmas parody about that season one episode of Pokémon that deals with a surfing blue eyed Pikachu named Pooka.

    The Pooka suit is a metaphor for alcoholism.Also cigarettes with the coughing and such. Maybe it's just a metaphor for drugs abuse in general.

    pooka sounds and looks very similar to the gealic/irish word puca [missing a 'fada' over the u] which means ghost or spirit ,it seems related to me

    i got that he was bleeding out and dying as well after the emt got their and everything is just his mind constructing a fantasy while he's bleeding out..because it starts at the accident as the whole movie takes place in the present and he's having and out of body experience and the real him is still laying on the ground

    I feel like Red and Wilson were both in purgatory or a coma. I think she was drunk driving as well as him driving in a rage. They were both alone in the apartment and her room had a red tent over it plus her name was Red.

    As terrible as it sounds this movie is a decent representation of what some furries are like. (Myself included) Where the suit, though daunting at first, quickly becomes an escape from reality and a large comforting presence both when worn or when simply in sight.

    Actually looks a creature that a fairy that rides a horse and contrals people with ease and gave people nightmares also take baby's but I'm not sure with the baby taking one but pooka is for children and he took a kid and beat him up but it's just a theory

    By the way don't type up any hates on this theory thanks.

    I like that the cop cars have red and blue lights just like Pooka's eyes. Also when the dad beats him up in the Pooka cloths I wonder if that's a reference to Mr. Bloby.

    This story reminds me of the 4chan story or reddit story of a guy getting knocked in the head by some guy and wakes up in a whole new life with kids and a wife, but throughout the story a lamp becomes the main focus of the mans affection thus losing his wife and children later descending into madness later waking up with a concussion realizing that his dream life was never real causing him to end up depressed for a loss he never had. So sad yet a beautiful way of someone revisiting the past through a fantasy lens only to realize it’s your guilt messing with you

    The worst episode I have ever seen of any serie. I just finished it right now and, to be honest, it's so bad that now I'm a little bit angry because it's been a fucking waste of more than an hour of my time.

    In some cultures when you wear masks you take on the nature and traits/personalities of the mask. In rituals they practice this. Like you are literally them when you put them on. So if he was being pookah he would act with the good/bad duality. Anyway hug size funny yaaaaaayyyyy!!!! I also like turtles.

      Laura Graves I really think, at least in this case, that the Pooka suit may have been possessed and toying with his actions. Also I like turtles as well--especially Ninja Turtles! ☺️

    Pooka reminds him of the good old times when he started dating Melanie and everything was great. After his Pooka gig was over, that's when he probably moved on to bigger acting roles and became a red carpet worthy actor (as seen in the living room portrait), but that's also when his relationship with Melanie started decaying, ultimately leading to his family's death. So it makes sense that he seeks refuge in his Pooka days memories, where he feels happy and safe (even though "naughty" Pooka represents his anger issues), but unfortunately he can't change the events that happened afterwards, so, even in reliving his memories, things are still bound to go downhill eventually.
    Ps. Or maybe he was a big actor first, met Melanie, became a failed actor, and then became Pooka. Or, maybe he never had a job as Pooka and this whole Pooka gig only happens in his imagination as a coping mechanism, trying to rewrite the past in his mind.
