So do you think William actually knew the original self of Audrey and that they actually did create the troubles. If so why do you think they created the troubles? Also what do we know about the troubles like what the barn actually is used for, why it erases memory, when the troubles were created and what is Audrey's role as well as Agent Howard's.
I actually think he is telling the truth. I think that William and Audrey's original self for some reason devised the troubles and then went about experimenting. They eventually got caught or something and troubled themselves then were punished to have to cure the troubles and watch time and again their actions.
