Tonight’s “Gravity Falls” Answers Questions

Tonight's "Gravity Falls" Answers Questions

“The real question is, ‘is he a good guy or is he a bad guy,” said Gravity Falls creator Alex Hirsch. This is the question that Gravity Falls fans are dying to find out about Grunkle Stan. Tonight’s episode on Disney XD will rock your socks off according to Hirsch.  

“Normally in a mystery series, you except there would be a big answer or a big turn at the end of the season, at Gravity Falls we like to switch things up at bit.” 


At the end of these 30 minutes, this episode will have you hanging off of your couches, literally. Hirsch said, this episode will reveal to us more about Grunkle Stan than we’ve ever known and we couldn’t be more excited.


During tonight’s show, government agents take Grunkle Stan into custody. Leaving Dipper and Mabel to question how much they really know about their Grunkle Stan. The episode also has a Nick Offerman (Parks and Recreation) guest starring as Agent Powers. 

In the video above, we see Grunkle Stan being interviewed by the government agents who captured him. He is being accused of stealing 300 gallons of radioactive waste from a government waste facility. As he dodges their question, he tells Mabel she is the “man of the house,” and attempts to tell us what is actually happening. But is hauled away by the agents in the process.


For all you die hard fans who think that this is the end of the series, Hirsch has confirmed that it is not.


“This is not the end of the series, this is only the middle of the season, he said. There will be many more episodes and many more mysteries that get crazier and build off what happens tonight.”


So fear not! Know this show is only getting better from here. However, it is very important that you watch tonight.


According to Hirsch, “This episode that’s coming changes the status quo of the world of Gravity Falls in such a way, that if you see the episode after, and you miss this one you will not know what the heck happened.”  



We don’t know about you all, but that definitely has us “couch ready” for this evening. You can catch up with Alex Hirsch on Twitter at @_alexhirsch for more Gravity Falls updates. Do not miss tonight’s episode of Gravity Falls on Disney XD.
