But why? Fate is stupid.

Nah, I don't buy it. I think Burrows' decline can easily and appropriately be chalked up to the frailty of the human psyche, and that most alluring of paths we follow to hell.

Now the whale oil thing, that might have something to do with something. The Outsider seems to have some kind of connection to the abyss, and to the unknowable creatures that swim within it. We haven't seen a lot of obvious consequences for it so far, but it has been played up as an ambiguously Bad Thing. It's possible that burning all that shining blood is somehow disrupting a cosmic balance we can barely comprehend. Hell, we could even speculate it's related to why so many people are being marked in recent years.
