Gracie Muaj më parë
If the keeper didn't report anything weird during those two weeks, I wonder if the principal keeper paid him to not say anything and then murdered the other two. Since he had asked just before arriving at the lighthouse with the others whether they could do an experiment to see how long it would take someone to get there between the thing being reported and them actually investigating. Since it was denied, maybe he opted to just bribe the keeper to keep silent. Since he wanted to know how long it would take for someone to come investigating, maybe he was planning out how long he'd have from the time he'd stop turning on the light (leaving the island) until someone would start looking for him. The journal said he was quiet, so what if he was just nervous about his plans. He could have drugged the other two which made them hallucinate and see the storm. Perhaps he was conducting some sort of experiment, and then killed them and left somehow, maybe by having some sort of accomplice pick him up or something.

I've been watching these episodes quite a lot recently and what's just dawned on me is that while Shane doesn't believe in ghosts, he does seem to believe in happy endings. It's actually sweet how often in these disappearance episodes he brings up them disappearing on purpose to go live happy lives.

It could've been the creatures called Sirens? is my guess/theory, my theory is that because the Lighthouse was on a cliff and the concrete blocks were at the bottom of the cliff, the sirens could've sung their hypnotizing song, and could've lured the keepers to their deadly demise. - Nevaeh Productions.

Watching Shane get so excited for the "What're you buying" line of stuff only to be broken by the words "Can of Alien Juice" is simultaneously hilarious and pitying. He's just so excited for whatever lead in that Ryan is building up to. Excited for maybe a clue as to something solid and profound. But no, it's aliens to destroy the Madej's joyful heart.
