Following the theme of making our heads hurt, twenty one pilots dropped a fresh Clancy letter (and an edited version later) just before releasing their cryptic new music video for “Chlorine.” Fans have been ripping their hair out trying to make sense of the video and letter and the correlation between the two (if there is any at all).
Here are some of the best theories the Clique has concocted…so far.
“Chlorine” and “My Blood” are part of a trilogy (similar to “Levitate,” “Jumpsuit” and “Nico And The Niners”).

…and the skeletons from “My Blood” might be the reflection we see in the pool in “Chlorine.”

And “Cut My Lip” might be the next video for the supposed trilogy…

…or maybe “Morph.”
The next music video to complete a trilogy is gonna be Morph
– I’ll morph to someone else- as Ned did
– He’ll always try to stop me, that Nicholas Bourbaki – reference to Nico again

Or the chlorine reveals their “true selves,” morphing them from skeletons…
The Chlorine helped them cleanse and reveal their true self. That’s why Ned grew horns and the boys started out in the skeleton hoodies. pic.twitter.com/HVBWwYabkn
