The Mastermind[]

Forrest is actually the man behind George's killings. Having started a rumor that killing someone while ingesting red seeds would make the murderer immortal, he drove George down the bloody path of becoming the New Raincoat Killer.

Forrest is actually a resident of the Red World and was not just part of the Greenvale massacre in the '50s, but also played a role in the tragedy of Zach's mother's death and father's suicide.
