Until Dawn is all about making sure you make the right choices to make it out alive... But what if the most important character in the game is the only one who gets NO CHOICE in whether they live or die. What does that mean for you playing the game? What does that say about the game itself? Get ready for a completely new understanding of Until Dawn! (plus a few spoilers!)

Josh was always my favorite.

But when you get Dr. Hill's notes, he wrote that withdrawal from Josh's med causes all of the symptoms you desribed. Like yeah, it could be schizophrenia but it also could be just withdrawal symptoms (probably withdrawal symptoms because you get the clue, right?).

Great Theory! You covered almost everything in 1 video. "Almost". Remember the death totem. The death scene? That showed THEIR death. Hannah falling on a rock, breaking her back and DYING. Just a quick add on :D
English Muffin
wow, where did these doctors get their degree? I felt bad for Josh....everyone is evil except Sam and Josh 😡
why, game developers, why make the innocent schizophrenic have such terrible ways to die?! death is less painful than suffering from malnutrition and turning into a Wendigo! sigh Josh reminds me of the movie "Beautiful Mind" at least that movie ended well for the schizophrenic

U can save josh
I also got a lot of antidepressants prescribed in the beginning, not only do they not work, they made everything worse. Every time they put me on them, within a month I'd basically go completely insane ending up inpatient for months, usually after trying to kill myself. Took a long time for them to figure out it was schizophrenia and even then you have to try lots of medications to find one that works, or what I have, a "cocktail" of different medications. I'm relatively stable right now thank goodness ._.

"oh" super close up
It's true. I have severe depression. No matter how much positive outward stimuli I have, nothing can unsour a bad depression day. No feelings at all.

Thankfully though, proper medication can limit the number of bad days.

This, I swear, is the only intro ever you can't get bored by.

Major Depressive Disorder is often accompanied by psychotic features, including visual or auditory hallucinations. It's very possible that his other symptoms (paranoia, disorganized speech) didn't manifest themselves until after Hannah and Beth died. While genetics do play a major role in schizophrenia, stress and environmental factors are also important. The trauma of his sisters dying could have triggered Josh's schizophrenia, and some of the other symptoms that are present during the game. Meaning, Josh could have easily just been suffering from depression up until that point, and his doctors were unable to catch up to the manifestation of the new disease before Josh started to pull away.

And while I'm not a fan of psychiatrists being painted as the "villains", it is pretty obvious by chapter 10 that Josh perceives them that way, at least Dr. Hill. The way Dr. Hill yells at him- is this how Josh was really treated or just his delusion that no one cares about him?

Cool theory.
