Whether you were a child of the 1970s, 1980s, or 1990s, Grease was a movie just about everyone loved. The movie featured the romantic love story of Danny and Sandy.
Sandy was the buttoned-up "good girl" and Danny was the "cool guy" that every girl in high school dreamed of dating. However, Daily News reports a fan spun theory speculates that the love story of Sandy and Danny never actually happened the way Grease fans interpreted it. In fact, this fan-created theory speculates that Sandy died at the very beginning of the movie and the entire Sandy and Danny romance was a dream she had as her brain became deprived of oxygen.
Now, chances are pretty good you – like many Grease fans – think this theory sounds completely crazy. However, comments on a Reddit thread reading the theory do help justify and support this crazy theory.
So, how does this theory play out exactly?
The original fan based Grease theory suggests Sandy, played by Olivia Newton-John, ended up drowning in the ocean because Danny, played by John Travolta, never saved her. As she drowned and her brain became deprived of oxygen, the belief is that she imagined the whole perfect high school scenario that included her romance with Danny.
Now, you are probably thinking one thing – Tell me more, Tell me more!
The biggest reason why some Grease fans are starting to believe there may be some truth to this crazy theory stems from the fact that the movie played out "too perfectly" as some of the commenters on the original Reddit post discussing the theory claimed.
If you've seen the movie Grease, you know Danny and Sandy are able to get back together despite everything that happens to them, Rizzo has a pregnancy scare and suddenly isn't pregnant anymore, Kenickie realizes he actually loves Rizzo, and that geeky kid in the background manages to get on the sports team. Reddit users go on to claim the movie plays out and wraps up just how the sweet and innocent persona of Sandy would have wanted it to.
Is Grease really just a movie with a happy and satisfied ending? Or, is there some possibility the movie actually is a dream version of how Sandy pictured things would play out in high school?
