Dark Friends Fan Theory Claims Phoebe’s Flat Was Burnt Down By Porn Barons

Wait... what?

Everyone remembers the Friends episode where we discover Phoebe Buffay’s twin sister Ursula is a porn star, right?

In one of the most memorable episodes from season six, we find that Phoebe’s twin has been shooting adult movies – including Buffay The Vampire Layer – in her name, and it leads to a whole load of crazy consequences.

Sure, it’s fun episode, but have you ever considered that the storyline could have had some pretty terrible repercussions further down the line?

We’re pretty sceptical of fan theories here at loaded, but when we saw the brilliant hypothesis dreamed up by cracked, we just had to share it.

According to the theory, the episode is directly linked to the events of another season six episode – the one where Pheobe’s apartment burns down.

How? In the porn episode, we know that Phoebe gets payback on her sister by marching down to the porn company and picking up Usula’s cheques, before telling them to forward all of Ursula’s pay cheques to her ‘new address’.

The theory argues that Phoebe made a grave error in giving her address. She was essentially stealing from the porn company, and they were likely to look for retribution.

We know that Ursula’s involved with some unsavoury people too, after we find she’s got the blueprints of a bank stashed away in her bag.

Sure enough, just three episodes after the incident, Phoebe’s apartment catches fire. Could porn barons have burned down the flat as payback?

Of course, it could be just a coincidence, but the evidence is pretty convincing.

That’s not all either. In a further twist, Pheobe takes Rachel to a self-defence class a week before the fire – did she know that an attempt was about to be made on her life?

We’ll leave it up for you to decide.

Friends is remembered for being one of the funniest and most feel-good shows out there, but fans of the show have been known to get into some pretty dark stuff online…  

There’s a whole community dedicated to producing dark theories about the show, which have included ‘the one about Monica’s cocaine addiction’ and ‘the one about Ross’s secret custody battle’.
