so hear me out, spoilers ahead. bare in mind i have only watched the anime.

What if Subaru and Betelgeuse are actually the same person.

Betelgeuse is always going on about how much he has done for the witch. and Subaru has done a hell of alot for Emilia. maybe just maybe Subaru stayed by her side for along time. She eventually turned into the which and was sealed away. out of desperation and years of searching Subaru then forms the witches cult to find Emilia and on the way he loses his self after learning how to switch consciousness to his "fingers" he then loses sight of who he really is and takes up the name Betelgeuse.

For this theory to work there would have to be some sort of time loop right, that is where this theory gets a bit weird.
What if there is some sort of time loop that the royal family/Dragon devised to keep the kingdom safe, and Beautrice, Puck and the white whale are the only ones that know about it as they have lived so long. and the witch (whilst sealed up) is desperately searching for Subaru only to find that he is no longer of this world (he is Betelgeuse now and is forever switching consciousnesses) thats when in the time loop she reaches into the other world.. the one where Subaru was in episode 1 and pulls him in hence the reason why Subaru was brought into the world in the first place.

this would explain why Beautrice seems sort of down in one of the later episodes maybe she has been through this a few hundred times and is sick of seeing subaru die, it would also explain why Betelgeuse can take control of Subaru's body in the first place and maybe why the white whale didn't eat him that one time because he knew how important he was to the time loop. obviously this is a shot in the dark i just thought i would make this theory. it was fun to think up

if there are any things you would like to add or any holes in my theory be sure to let me know :)

P.S sorry about the bad punctuation and english hopefully you understood.

Hi. We have a discussion thread for the show, so I'm closing this one. This would make a good addition to existing discussion, so feel free to share it there. Here's the link:
