Even in nearly three hours of supernatural
horror, It: Chapter Two can’t tie up every loose end left hanging. But never fear, because we’re here to help
you look back over everything that happened in the sequel to identify its most compelling
unanswered questions. Warning: Spoilers are ahead. Richie’s flashback to the arcade strongly
implies he’s gay and still in the closet. We see him playing Street Fighter with another
boy, and when Richie suggests they hang out more, the boy spots his cousin, bully Henry
Bowers, and goes on the offensive, claiming that Richie was hitting on him. When Pennywise appears to Richie shortly afterward,
he teases him, saying he knows his “dirty little secret.” In 2016, Richie takes the death of Eddie harder
than any of the other Losers, and toward the end of the film, he returns to a bridge where
he carved their initials together into the rail, suggesting that Richie’s feelings for
Eddie went beyond friendship. We’re never told for sure, but it seems likely. It’s tough not to wonder exactly how the grown-up
Losers ever get in and out of Derry without being arrested. Their reunion dinner ends with them trashing
their private dining room when Pennywise unleashes his illusions. When the hostess walks in, she finds Mike
smashing a chair into the table, yet no one so much as scolds them for it. Richie screams at a little kid as they leave
the restaurant, and Bill is there to watch that same little boy get devoured by It at
the carnival. Most egregious, Richie buries a hatchet in
Bowers’ head in the Derry Library. Yet no police officers show up to so much
as question the Losers about anything. We never find out how they explain Eddie’s
disappearance. When Stanley’s widow sends them all a letter
he wrote before killing himself, there aren’t any follow-up calls from curious detectives. The only police you’re likely to notice in
the film are the ones beating the hell out of the young Henry Bowers in a flashback. It’s like the cops just disappeared. “What is going on here?” “What, are they just screwin’ with us?” “Where are the cops?” It’s not just the police who are missing. Obviously people live in Derry, but judging
by the film, outside of a few scenes at the carnival, it’s hard to tell. The bed and breakfast where most of the Losers
are staying is all but deserted. They’re constantly yelling, arguing, and banging
things around in the entryway. Eddie is attacked in his room by Henry, who
stabs him in the mouth. Eddie stabs Bowers in the chest, and the lunatic
retreats out the window. No one ever comes around to ask about the
blood or the broken furniture. When Bill grabs the same little boy Richie
yelled at earlier in broad daylight and yells at him that he has to get out of town, there’s
no one around to ask him what he thinks he’s doing. When the Losers emerge from It’s lair and
the house collapses into the earth, there’s no one around then, either. The streets are even deserted when they return
to downtown. Derry seems like a ghost town. In Stepen King’s novel, the writer makes it
clear that as threatening as It is, the monster is not the only powerful force with a stake
in what happens in Derry. Before their battle with It, the young Losers
encounter a godlike space turtle named Maturin, a benevolent spiritual force. While the direct help the turtle can offer
the heroes is minimal, it does remind them that they are not alone in their battle. But the turtle exists in little more than
Easter eggs in the It films. The young Bill finds a LEGO turtle in Georgie’s
room in 2017’s It; in the sequel, there’s a prominent turtle model in a classroom. Those seem to be the only direct nods to Maturin. “Where are the turtles? Where are the turtles?” “Come on, guys. Get outta here.” “Where are the turtles!?” We know It crashed to Earth a long time ago,
and that its existence was well known to the Native Americans who once lived where Derry,
Maine is now. It’s made of Deadlights. That’s about all we know. In his final battle with the Losers, Pennywise
refers to himself as the “eater of worlds.” Is it just bragging or is there more to It
than we know? This is another example of more being revealed
in King’s books, particularly his Dark Tower series, but even there we don’t get a complete
picture. Not to mention the fact that there’s no reason
the It of the films and the It of the books has to be the same entity. When the Losers reunite, we learn that with
the exception of Mike, they’ve mostly forgotten everything about Derry. But over time, we discover at least one of
them maybe hadn’t forgotten all, nor kept their attentions away from the town entirely. Beverly is surprised to learn about her father’s
death when Mrs. Kersh informs her of it, but Eddie remembers all the details of his mother’s
passing, volunteering the details of her cancer to the pharmacist, Mr. Keene. That could mean a couple things: one, that
Eddie at the very least kept up with his mother in Derry until her death, giving him some
lingering connection to the town. Or two, that she also left the town at some
point. We don’t find out which is the case. Though there are some brief mentions in later
King novels including The Tommyknockers and the Dark Tower series, the Losers’ final battle
with Pennywise seems to have been the end for the monster, at least as far as It’s influence
in Derry was concerned. A King fan would likely argue that a return
of Pennywise in the movies would be sacrilege. But if It: Chapter Two rakes in the kind of
money it’s expected to, Hollywood might be fine with a little sacrilege. “Bitter, because people die.” “Right.” “And sweet, because you’re making money.” “Exactly.” The questions It: Chapter Two leaves unanswered
could lay a narrative foundation for the villain’s return. If It was an alien, couldn’t there be more
like It? And what if It laid eggs? In the book, the Losers indeed have to destroy
a clutch of eggs It laid. Could a sequel focus on some baby Its? Time and ticket sales will tell. Check out one of our newest videos right here! Plus, even more Looper videos about your favorite

    What I want to know is why have the Losers not seen each other in 27 years? They first thought they defeated It when they were about 12-13, and It came back 27 years later, but considering they were all friends and only preteens, wouldn't they have continued to be friends at least through high school? Or did everyone except Mike immediately leave Derry after the first defeat of It? That doesn't make any sense. I get that moving out of Derry means you don't remember Derry, but unless they all (except Mike) moved out when they were 12, the last time they saw each other should have been about 21 or 22 years before at the very least, assuming they went off to college and never came back.

    Uhh. Most of these are answered. The lack of police is explained in Part 1 where we are made aware that IT uses it's powers to prevent the Adults and Police from investigating the strange occurrences around Derry. They only showed up to apprehend Henry because at that time, IT had been defeated by the kids.

    The second question is literally the same thing. Noone is around because IT is preventing them from noticing what's going on.

    The turtle os simply omitted from the movie, so that's not an unanswered question because it's never brought up in the movie to begin with.

    And there was NO question by the end of the movie whether Richie was gay. We were given more than enough evidence to need it stated outright.

    I think the biggest unanswered question is why did Stanley remember IT when everyone else forgot?

    It brainwashed the townspeople and grown ups. It’s why ppl watched them get bullied or hurt. It’s exactly why they man handle it in this movie. Adults are stronger. It feeds on children bc they can’t defend themselves. That’s why they get away with what they do bc no one in town is normal.

    Have to critic one thing in the movie and thats the boys death in the mirror maze! The amount of screen time and emphasise put on him for him to die to pennywise like he did was imo a waste of time which could of been used for other aspects such as delving deeper into stanleys life and how his encounter with pennywise effected him as he grew up and ultimately made him come to the decision he did.

    "It" was a cosmic being formulated from an alternate dimension as Matuirn's enemy, or so i was informed, if Hollywood actually attempted your theory on the "baby Its" they would receive massive backlash. If anything, there would be another higher dimensional being that might get caught in our dimension who is more powerful than It.

    Of course the cops never follow up, no one stops the Losers or questions them. They didn't do that in the 80's and that's because of Pennywise's pull over the town and its citizens, he makes them turn the other way and accept the chaos that is constantly happening around them. That's the whole point of showing all the brutal crimes with no real repercussions, other than the cop dad being killed as the sole exception.

    The implication of Richie being gay was the worst thing in the film for me because it made the least amount of sense. I wouldn't mind it one bit if it was implied in the first movie, but it's literally yanked out of the hat at the end of chapter 2 for no reason.

    In the movie Richie is def gay, in the book there is no mention of or nothing that eludes to this

    in the book it is a running theme that the people in the town of Derry are not quite right. They all turn a blind eye to all the violence and crime going on in their town. They don’t see what the losers see.

    the turtle in the book is a very abstract concept. It is the force of good but would not translate to film well

    Eddie and his mother both move out of Derry, they are both living in NYC years later when she passes away.
