Possibly the most disturbing moment in the series is when the infants are trapped in the wall found above the cupboard. What some of you probably missed, that I nearly back away from the television for, was the fact that the final infant will whisper "Thank you." before being the last to dissapear. Anyone catch that?

Probably for the best. That haunting is the most annoying thing ever. You just can't get rid of it.

You’re lucky.

And yes I did notice along the end of it, one of them says "Thank you".

Wait, sorry I'm incredibly slow, but where exactly do you find these infants in the cupboards?

No, the infants aren't in the cupboards. They are one of the hauntings, found above the trunk that Henry stashes everythign in, a.k.a your inventory.

There's just this mass of infants that cry. It's sad, really.

Ohh, ok I see. Thanks. I'll really have to look for that next time.

That was my favorite haunting. It was disturbing at first, then you feel compassion for the poor little things after rthe last one says "thank you."

That was kinda creepy but do you think it has any deeper meaning than just to piss people off b/c i know i turned the sound off everytime i went to the apartment from then on

Maybe (and this is a huge maybe b/c i'm actually thinking for once in my life) but maybe the doll is meant to symbolize suffering and fear infants often cry when something is wrong i wonder if this is maybe one of walter's ways of telling Henry that something was to come of Eileen in some way

[spoiler]her death or his attempt to kill her[/spoiler]

Iono maybe i'm over thinking things but if i could find some solid evidence it may hold up tell me what you guys think

Why would it say thank you by simply backing away from it? Or does it say that when you try to exorcise it?

I'm thinking those are the souls of the kids who were in the orphanage with Walter. They're crying, like when Jasper wrote that the kids could be heard crying when the cult guys did stuff to them. I haven't seen it, but do the babies pop out and scream all creepy like? Because that would just be cool. Mass making possesed baby machines, or "Baby Mitosis". It's brilliant...I'm so sadistic...

I don't think they're babies, I think they're dolls. They are wearing the shabby dolls clothes.

My theory is this.

When Eileen gave Walter the doll a loooong time ago, he mentioned that he was so overcome with emotion that he began to cry and couldent stop crying for a long time.
That Doll almost became a part of him....hmmm a PART of him...

When you see Walter on the steps of the apartment block he sits there and calmly hands you the Doll to take, with an explaination of it and where he got it, but how comes if it's so special to him he wants to give it to someone he's "apparently" never met before...
Well I think he knows that by giving it to Henry that he will take it back to his Room (the place Walter wants to get closer to) and most likely store it there since it has no use, since the dolls a part of Walter (to a certain extent) this gets him somewhat closer to the inside of Henrys room...

Now when you take the doll back to the Apartment, the faces start to appear all over the cabinet, and as mentioned when you deposit it inside the cabinet, the faces say "thank you"...
this could be genuine praise from young walter (manifested inside the haunting) or maybe sarcasm from Walter (haha thanks for letting me in)

Not very well written but I think the point is there...

The Doll is another way that Walter can invade or get closer to his "mother"

wow i kinda had a different theory, but that ones damn good too! my theory is that he gave the doll to henry to kinda hinder the safety of his room and sorta make it tougher on him, so when he finally has to duke it out with him at the end he'll be considerably weaker and more likely to lose to him... those are my opinions and it might simple but its the one i came to.

Thank you ^^
Your Theory works too, using the innocent looking Doll against Henry as another way to weaken him with hauntings, it could also be another way of "breaking" him, when even an innocent Doll can cause such horror to be inflicted upon him, I think it does all boil down to invading the Room to some extent, nothing goes in, nothing comes out....except for Henry and his posessions, a convenient way to cause chaos, get him to take something in that is a part of Walter which he can then use to manifest hauntings within the room that he longs to enter himself...notice also that the Dolls can not actually get through the Wall, they are stuck there, it seems even with a part of himself inside the Room, he still cannot enter the room, and the dolls stuck unable to move on the wall could symbolise this.

M.

@ Kim - The Dolls are stuck on the wall like a big 3D collage, they cry repeatedly in a desperate fashion, almost as if they are pleading for help or attention, as well as this random Dolls heads shake erratically and some of them attempt to shake away from the wall, remeniscent of attempting to invade the Room but failing, instead they can only sit and watch and cry.
