    The watch guy did see the light twice in that span of two weeks. Maybe the aliens came in and took one of them to they turned off the light. Tried lighting and the aliens took another. Then finally the last time lighting it they took the last guy. 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️😂

    Everyone: murder, suicide, madness and death. Or maybe just hear me out this will sound outrageous but what if they just left? Doesn't have to be a polyamorous gay relationship, but considering that morale was low it's not impossible that 1 or 2 left then the other followed, or they all left simultaneously, it's not exactly hard to vanish back then.
