Squid Game Fans Have Shock Theory About Bed Wetting Scene

*Warning: this article contains major Squid Game spoilers*

Fans have come up with a Squid Game theory, following that dramatic twist at the end of the show.

The theory points to one of the most poignant moments in the series, and it might leave you rather emosh.

Remember the moment when the Old Man wet the bed after the huge murderous fight broke out in the dorm?

Well, now fans have spotted a clue that suggests the scene could have been faked...

Sharing a video on TikTok, one person wrote: "Omg just noticed something in Squid Game".

The camera then panned to show a water bottle lying next to the Old Man seconds after he wet himself.

Watch the moment for yourself, and keep an eye on the top right of the bed...

Could it all have been a clue leading up to what happened at the end?

"That guy fooled us good I'm not even going to lie," one person said.

While another penned: "OMG HE DID IT DELIBERATELY".

"NO WAY I AM NOT TRUSTING ANYONE EVER AGAIN," said a third.

As a fourth suggested: "Maybe it was a test for Gi-hun".

Some weren't convinced though, pointing out that the water bottle had already been used earlier in the scene, after being poured on a towel to ease the Old Man's fever.

"He didn't use all the water to put it on a towel," someone else questioned. "Maybe he poured the rest on himself to test him."

We'll never know for sure, but it's certainly something to think about...

Following this scene, Gi-hun offered the Old Man his jacket, tying it around his waist so the wet patch - which he presumed was pee - wasn't visible.

Could his kindness at this point have helped his eventual outcome?

Those who have watched the whole series will know that Gi-hun and the Old Man - real name Oh Il-nam - went on to form a bond in the marbles game.

But, ultimately, when it came down to the two of them, he left him behind to die.

What he didn't know, though, was that the Old Man was actually the host of the Squid Game all along, and had only been playing in the games because he thought it would be fun and nostalgic.

He hadn't actually died at the end of the marble game, and was instead whisked to safety, to watch the rest savagely play out, and bet on the players alongside his wealthy peers.

You can watch Squid Game on Netflix now.
