I don't think the son was switched. It goes directly against Red's plan of justice for all tethered. Red (real adelaide who was switched) had 2 choices: seek revenge solely against Adelaide (the tethered who switched her, the person we think is Adelaide) or seek revenge against everyone above ground. She chose the later. If she had sought revenge only against Adelaide, then yes the son would've been switched, but so would the rest of the family. She wouldn't have just stopped at the son, she would've switched each family member so they could all turn on Adelaide in the end and Red could seemlessly resume her rightful place above ground. Instead she chooses to free all the tethered from underground so that everyone underground is freed. Keeping this in mind, the son being switched doesn't fit her plan at all. There's no reason for her to switch one child and not the other. Adelaide shows sympathy to both tethered children as they die because she knows that had she not taken the place of Red, the real Adelaide, Pluto and Umbrae would've been her children. Likewise, knowing Jason would've been her son had she not been switched, Red kidnaps him rather than killing him. A lot of the "clues" are reaches too. Kids do dig tunnels. I remember doing that. The big thing when I was little was pretending we were digging all the way to China. Turn on any sitcom and you'll see a kid saying some inappropriate phrase and the parents going "where did you get that from?" As for him not knowing where the bat was, some people just freeze up when in situations like this. We all like to think we'd hop right into action but some people freeze and just can't think clearly.

I think that Jason wasn't switched out I believe the reason he cant do the magic trick is because Pluto stopped doing the trick last summer when he got burned so that's the reason Jason can't do it...he never knew how to do it, it was Pluto who knewed how just the same as how red knew how to dance but adelaide didn't know how to do it cause it wasn't she doing the dancing

hope - 16 days ago
Wait I wanna hear why y’all DONT think Jason was switched at some point BEFORE the movie started. Personally I think it’s possible. 1. His family made remarks about how he’s acting different and asking where he learned these new sounds. 2. His tethereds name is “Pluto” , out of all the planets Pluto isn’t a planet, out of all the tethered Pluto isn’t one of them. 3. The whole snapping off beat thing but idk I can look passed that. 4. The gone wrong magic trick? 5. When the family is face to face in the living room, he’s the only one not crying, like he knew this was coming at some point. 6. The comments about how he just became weird one summer but was just assumed to be caused by his grandmothers death?
He just seems strange to me idk y’all my mind is spinning 💀

Also, the color RED appeals to the LOWER vibration of us. Explains the red jumpsuits. Scissors are meant to “cut away.” This film was soooo dope!!!
mynameis - 17 days ago
So I heard, for Nat Turner's slave revolt, they used knives, hatchets, axes, etc., instead of guns so they wouldn't alert anyone. I guess this was another connection besides the other meanings of why the tethers used the scissors

This movie was about whites in America treating blacks and blacks coming to take back what was taken from them by white people. Blacks were pushed under ground ( to the back). Our indignity was stolen our language and land was stolen. That's why the underground people couldn't talk.The red lining is what they are doing to blacks right now. He says it in about 5:09 in his explanation.The joining hands is the sign of unity thats going to take place by black people. The awakening is happening right now in the black community in every city. The red lining is what whites are doing to us in our cities today also.The people that control the land on the surface today (white people) has always stolen our identity, land, wealth etc… after we showed white people  how to clean, harvest and other agricultural skills they pushed us to the back (underground) by killing and stealing whats ours (US) then enslaved us to build a comfortable society for them. Thats why Red said in the movie “WE COULD HAVE LEFT TOGATHER.” Meaning (whites) didn’t have to take it all for themselves. The scripture in the Bible that they keep showing Jeremiah 11:11 This is talking about the repay of the Edomites (whites) in the Bible. the Bible states the Edomites have no repentance and God will never forgive them. God says he puts the earth in the hand of the wicked. WHO RUNS THE EARTH TODAY (whites) Listen to what this guy says starting at 5:40 about the escalator and why the people just didn't walk up to freedom. There is much much more I can explain but to much to write. Bottom line Blacks are coming back to reclaim whats rightfully ours and whites will do what ever it takes to live their unrighteous privilege life. If anyone shall rise to the surface with the truth to change a evil design shall be killed. Just like she did Red in the movie but notice as they rode off people were standing joining hands in unitiy. The underground people is (blacks) are waking up coming from underground to reclaim whats rightfully ours.

This is just a theory i heard, but I think it could be real. The little boy, Jason' is actually the double. The boy with the burnt face is Jason. The tou that "Jason" plays with, is a match underground, where Jason is. Thats why his face is burnt. Because he burnt himself with the matches as "Jason" is always playing with that toy thing. Also, did anyone else have to Google the ending because they didn't really understand what happened? Because to be honest I wouldn't be suprised. Have a great day everyone!

Vitlök - 18 days ago
what NO ONE bring up is that Adelaide was actually a successful clone, she was the one controlling the girl upstairs at the amusement park to move towards her, that was why she was so afraid of Jason when she was at the beach, she was worried that maybe the clone was a success like her and would move him down. And another thing is that RED Adelaide was raped down there since Adelaide upstairs got a husband, so we know for sure she got raped twice, that's why she wanted to take her time killing her upstairs because of the life she stole from her and all the suffering she encountered down at the tunnels

TIFFANY PERSAUD - 22 days ago
Lupita has freakishly good talent. "This laugh" haunts my nightmares. I "Get Out" (phenomenal film) was about racism, and "Us" was about clasism, I could see the former more (yes, perhaps because of the more linear realistic storyline) than the latter (yes, perhaps because it was a trip).
The classism was lost on me because the clones were not "human" in a sense that they lacked empathy (with only fake-Adelaide showing some by having her family); and would mercilessly slay humans and then robotically form chains. I could not empathize with them as a lower class. I saw them as near mindless terrorists and wouldn't even classify them as animals. I wish there was more to develop them. I can understand if they were tired of being "controlled" as the "tethered" - even if they showed remorse when their fellows died, I'd have bought it

Since Adeline wasn't a clone why did she have to mimic everything her clone did?
TIFFANY PERSAUD - 22 days ago
I think it was because... and I may be reaching here, that when real-Adelaide was imprisoned, fake-Adelaide on the surface began to have more control. The clones were manufactured to "control" the surface population in the first place, but it ended up happening so in the reverse - but I can see it going both ways at times - that at times they swap control.

The movie stumped me. I knew because it was a Jordan Peele film that it was going to be rich in imagery and symbolism, but up until the end when all - or almost all (if you think the kid was one too) - was revealed, I wasn't able to crack any of it. But thank goodness for those "Fill in the blank movie explained" videos that can help you understand it! I suppose if I give myself some credit, I wondered why the kid at the end looked at his mom funny, I do still wonder if the kid was tethered as well. But I guess we won't find that out for a while, don't think Jordan will reveal all like he did with GET OUT until he feels we have all gone to the theatres to see it so he doesn't ruin it for people.
Pademelon Gaming
Pademelon Gaming - 23 days ago
Here’s my question: When they switched places, did they swap memories? I ask because the MC’s doppelgänger who turned out to be the real person told the MC the story of why all this is happening, and she told it as though she had always been a tethered, and always will be. She vaguely talks about what it was like before she walked up the escalator, rather than telling the story of how she walked into the hall of mirrors like we saw her do at the beginning of the movie.
TLDR; Why did the original version of the MC that we saw at the beginning of the movie seem to retain the memories of her tethered, and vise versa
Pademelon Gaming
Pademelon Gaming - 22 days ago
TIFFANY PERSAUD Yeah, that’s what I mean. It wracks my brain to try and make sense of it all
TIFFANY PERSAUD - 22 days ago
I know. I wonder if it was a plot hole. Red: "And the girl married a prince... and her shadow was given Abraham and it didn't matter whether she loved him or not... and she had a girl who was born a monster, smiling - and a boy who was born of fire." Red here is speaking of her experiences after becoming imprisoned. And then toward the end, Red is there doing a weird switch, "And when we met, I wondered why it was that you couldn't just take me with you." Like... lady, your clone called you to it at age eight, suffocated you, crushed your vocal chords, dragged you down to prison, chained you and ran free - why was she gonna take you with her at any point? It was instead as if Red was speaking from the perspective of a tethered when they met at age eight - when it was the other way around! It threw me for a loop.

The escalator only went down tho.
The whole reason Red was able to escape was because the power went out.
EddyGordo21 - 24 days ago
Red was a successful clone and a genious. Both red and adelaide were genius little girls, but red had more of the upper hand. Because red was a successful clone she knew that one day she would be able to get all of them from down there and change the status quo - remember they have the same memories as the ones above.
So red was able to manipulate adelaide into going into the mirror room where red could overpower adelaide and trap her in the underground. However, red knows how smart adelaide is, and knew that adelaide would be able to lead a rebellion of the tethered. The tethered knew adelaide was different with the way she moved while she was down there dancing. During this time, however, red was above ground having therapy and forgetting who she really was.
Adelaide is able to get everyone from down there and make red remember what really happened. But if adelaide had survived, the whole plan would have not been successful because the plan was to kill all the above ground people and leave only the tethered. Adelaide had to die for this to be fulfilled.
So adelaide's fate was always death.

Angry Black Woman Getting Her PhD
I don't get why the tethered took the original human's shirt she won the same one in the underworld. I could've sworn that when the grown original was having a flashback it showed her father winning the shirt and her just grabbing it. Or did things happen with a delay. I doubt it though. So I wonder if in the ending the mother was confused OR if I didn't remember the design on the tethered shirt.
TIFFANY PERSAUD - 22 days ago
I think that's actually a plot hole. I was thinking about it myself too. They did look exactly alike when they first met at eight - as they were already wearing the same clothes. What probably happened was that perhaps fake-Adelaide after imprisoning her just took her Thriller shirt from her leaving her with the "Hands Across America" shirt - but that doesn't make sense to me either.
Angry Black Woman Getting Her PhD
The escalator naturally went down. The little girl had to run up to reach her dreams. She was trying to elevate her lifestyle even though things worked against her. In my mind adelaide's tether was smarter than her. She reacted faster and she didn't let a challenge get in the way of her happiness.

Adele( the mother) was slowly reverting back to her tethered origins. While Red reverted back to her human origins. Let that sink in . The rabbits were the tethered folks only source of food but they are also symbolic of depopulation and being devoured and controlled by the " underwold" . kinda like dual purposes. The tethered populated alongside the above ground people then invaded killed them off, starting a new society.

Maybe there was no twist at all. how about that. The only time it literally shows that Adelaide is the doppleganger is when Jason is staring at his mom in the ambulance which could actually just be implying that thats a visual of whats going on in his imagination because of all the times he spotted her acting weird when she kills people. Maybe the dopplegangers personalities have aspects of them that are intertwined like how pluto and jason's are. that's why the white girl twins are in the movie. to show how two individuals who may look the same but are completely two different people still have a connection which shows when they say the same thing at the same time over and over again

People missed certain things about the hobo with the 11:11 scripture. The hobo' s doppelganger being dressed different and the first to kill his counter part are a hint that strong beliefs are what allow the doppelgangers to break free. This is reinforced when the real Adelaide says she realized God was testing her which is probably how she broke free and freed the rest of the doppelganger. By giving them their own beliefs.

The social aspect makes even more sense when you think of the scene in the movie where adelaine asks why she didn’t take her with her. It lends to the crabs in a bucket metaphor where in order for one of the disenfranchised to make it, they have to pull down whom ever is above them.

The laugh is gutteral, low and deep, along with the noises they make to communicate. Probably representative of them being deep below ground. The definition of gutteral: "being or marked by utterance that is strange, unpleasant, or disagreeable". To everyone "above", they are definitely strange, unpleasant, and disagreeable because they're not "us".
