A "Grease" fan theory that put a dark twist on the film's plot – Sandy was actually dead throughout the movie – has regained interest on social media, helped by a post from actress Sarah Michelle Geller.

The theory that Olivia Newton-John's character, Sandy Olsson, was actually dead during her senior year when she reconnects with a summer fling was first pitched by Reddit user Atomicbolt in 2013, said USA Today.

As the theory goes, Danny Zuko, played by John Travolta, didn't save Sandy from drowning in the movie's opening and their romance was all a fantasy in her dying mind.

Atomicbolt theorized that Sandy "actually did drown on the beach that day."

"As she drowned, her brain (was) deprived of oxygen (and) she had a vivid coma fantasy involving her summer fling Danny, where they shared a magical year of high school together. The visions get increasingly outlandish as time passes until finally, as Danny desperately tries to resuscitate her on the beach, she sees herself flying into heaven in her dying moments. The entire movie was a drowning woman's coma fantasy."

Sarah Michelle Geller gave the theory new life with a posting on Facebook on Wednesday.

 

 

The Daily Mail said another Reddit user suggested that Sandy killed herself before the end of the movie, making only the closing scene a fantasy.

"The last line of 'Look at me I'm Sandra Dee (Reprise)' is 'Goodbye to Sandra Dee,'" said Reddit user Randomd0g, according to the Daily Mail. "Everything that happens in the last scene is just a little too perfect. Danny and Sandy are back together despite everything, Rizzo suddenly isn't pregnant and Kenickie suddenly decides that he actually loves her, the geeky kid gets onto the sports team, everything is suddenly ok, just the way that sweet, innocent Sandy would have wanted it to be."

Some "Grease" fans found the fan theory unpleasant at best.
