    This thread is dedicated to all discussion about Portal and Portal 2's secrets, easter eggs and other mysterious things from the games.

    OK a while ago I posted this thread about some mysterious sounds i noticed in portal 2.
    I've just read this and which is really creepy. Some of it is rubbish/obvious (like 'could Caroline be married to Cave?' which she was) but others really got me.
    Like the pictures in one of rat man's dens in portal 1 showing c.Johnson in the pics, and a family and possibly the fact that Chell is Caroline's daughter...

    The really freaky thing is this photo:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Chell was one of the kids at the 'bring your daughter to work day'!!! Was she adopted by c'Johnson and Caroline? Is RatMan related to them somehow? Is C.Johnson the RatMan???!!! Argghh!

    What do you think?

    We know that the RatMan is the last living employee of Aperture, Dr. Rattmann.

    We don't know about Chell's parents, though.

    Read the Portal 2 comic. Caroline was one of the inhibitors they tried, and as you can probably tell it didn't work. However the likelihood of her being Chell's mother is pretty high, if you compare them side by side (there's a picture of Caroline standing next to cave in the 2nd aperture facility).
    Anyway, point is, GLaDOS and Chell are seperate.

    Nice! That's exactly what I was thinking, though it doesn't quite fit in how she was abandoned at birth...

    Also there's the mystery of those sound files still...
