Matthew Perry’s untimely passing at the age of 54 left devoted “Friends” fans grappling for answers. Turning to the actor’s Instagram page for insight into his final days, they stumbled upon a post that carried a haunting undertone.

Following Perry’s tragic demise at his Los Angeles residence on October 28, reports surfaced, indicating that he had met his end in his jacuzzi, later discovered by his assistant. Though it remains unclear if immediate medical assistance was summoned, the emergency dispatcher suspected a cardiac event. Despite Perry’s candid discussions about his battle with addiction, no substances were found on the premises.

In his memoir, “Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing,” Perry recounts a near-death experience that prompted his commitment to sobriety. A staggering opioid intake had led to a ruptured bowel, resulting in a fortnight-long coma and an extensive hospital stay. “The doctors told my family that I had a 2 percent chance to live,” he reflects. The fear of a colostomy bag compelled him to kick his opioid habit, and following his astounding recovery, Perry appeared to embrace life with renewed vigor. “What I’m most surprised with is my resilience. The way that I can bounce back from all of this torture and awfulness,” Perry marvelled. His final Instagram photograph portrayed a seemingly content and serene Perry, although his caption left some followers puzzled.

Five days prior to his passing, Perry shared an Instagram snapshot of himself immersed in a hot tub beneath the night sky. Adorned with headphones, it’s plausible he was enjoying music during this tranquil soak. The moon peered through the clouds, creating a Gotham-like ambiance that prompted Perry to whimsically envision himself as a variant of the Dark Knight savoring a moment of respite. “Oh, so warm water swirling around makes you feel good? I’m Mattman,” he playfully quipped.

Following the news of Perry’s passing, condolences and reflections from grieving fans began flooding the post’s comments section. Some pointed out the disconcerting shift in perception, now that the circumstances of his death had come to light. “It’s unsettling that his last post was in his jacuzzi,” one person noted. Another comment read, “Anyone else think it’s eerie that his last post is a pic of where and how he died?” While it hasn’t been confirmed if the hot tub depicted is the one Perry met his end in, for some fans, imagining it as such provided a sense of solace. “I don’t think you could have picked a better place to go than your hot tub overlooking the city that happens to be your last post,” one fan mused. Another heartrending post featured a rare photograph of Perry with his father, taken earlier in the month.

Matthew Perry’s endearing references to himself as “Mattman” in his final Instagram posts, which included a jack-o’-lantern with a bat carving, left many of his followers intrigued. “Are all these posts a puzzle, Mattman?” one fan inquired. It turns out, Perry was a devoted Batman enthusiast, a passion he openly shared during a 2017 appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” He spoke of a room in his previous abode dedicated to Batman memorabilia, complete with a substantial statue of the superhero. Jimmy Kimmel even presented Perry with a plaque featuring his likeness adorned with the Caped Crusader’s mask, accompanied by a plate etched with the moniker “Mattman.”

In a 2022 interview with GQ, Perry revealed that he acquired a Century City penthouse because it evoked memories of the residence Bruce Wayne inhabits in “The Dark Knight” film. Upon relocating to a new property in the Hollywood Hills, he set about creating another “Matt cave” to house his cherished memorabilia. Perry further shared that a baseball cap emblazoned with the Batman logo held a special place in his wardrobe. “I like to watch the movie ‘Batman’ while wearing this — but just this,” he quipped. Perry also expressed his affinity for the Gotham Guardian, noting, “He’s kind of a loner. He’s rich. He solves crime. I also solve crime, so I can relate to Batman very much.”
