Question: Why did the treasure chest given to them at the end have "Deus Ex Machina" written on it?

Dandude776 1

Chosen answer: "Deus Ex Machina" means "God out of the machine." It's from Greek plays, wherein a god would appear at the end of the story to solve a problem. Nowadays it basically means that a totally new plot element appears out of nowhere and solves everything. It's an easy (and cheap) way out.

Chosen answer: Nobody knew, not even the writers, until at least halfway through the season when they were writing the end. They wanted to keep all options open.

Visible crew/equipment: At the end of the movie, as everyone reveals who they really are, when the girl reveals herself to actually be Detective Putrid you can see a hand reach up behind him and place his hat on his head. It could have been an intentional joke for the hat to suddenly float onto his head, but the hand probably wasn't supposed to be there.
