No, you aren’t seeing double, it’s just Tom and Jenny talking about some more weird shit. The German term doppelgänger, meaning literally “double walker,” is a strange phenomenon whereby a person sees a living double of themselves, an occurrence that throughout history has largely been seen as an omen of death. Poe’s short story “William Wilson” may be the best known fictional account of the mysterious “twin stranger,” and literature is full of other examples, but many well-known historical figures, including Abraham Lincoln, Catherine the Great, and Percy Shelley, also claimed to see eerie doubles of themselves which seemed to foretell ill fortune. There was also the bizarre case of Emilie Sagée, a French schoolteacher whose students repeatedly saw a double of the woman mirroring her movements, though Emilie herself supposedly never saw it. Get ready to double your pleasure and double your unease on a twice as terrifying episode 271.
