The premise for Netflix's Hold the Dark seems simple enough -- a mother, Medora Sloane (Riley Keough), in grief over having her son abducted by wolves calls in a naturalist, Russell Core (Jeffrey Wright), to lead the search party. This bit: “You trying to destroy the origin, that has happened an infinite number of times. You are only allowed to jump between the numbers in increments of 33. This whole article contains spoilers for Dark Season 3. If they handed us all the answers on a platter it would probably be pretty annoying.

Each iteration of Claudia learned more and more until we reached the ending that we saw in season 3. You are not seeing an "altered" timeline, influenced by your past actions (like in Butterfly Effect), the car was always there, and if you cared to remember before going back to the past, you would have recalled a strange guy going up to you when you were a kid, and giving you a toy car. Despite this fact, the children only seem to go forward(?) This is just more than 3,000 words of spoilers.

It is the exact same thing as with the Tannhaus machine. The toy car did not mysteriously appear in your closed once you returned to your own timeline. The Grandfather Paradox is very simple at its core: if you go back in time to kill your grandfather, you will never be born to begin with, and therefore cannot go back in time to kill your grandfather. We could talk about that stuff all day but, again, it would be madness to delve too deep while we’re still absorbing what we just saw. I'm still sure that Adan isn't Jonas, he seems too short and both Jonas are really devoted to Martha, Jonas killing her so coldly would be really weird. The caves work in 33-year increments. I do not know whether this is actually how the writers imagine it, and whether is is physically plausible at all. It may not even have been a time machine. Hey! Another way to look at it is to understand that every event you are seeing has already happened, regardless of the year or date the events are taking place. If our Jonas already became Adam, then nothing can ever be done to change that. These Are the Time Travel Rules of 'Avengers: Endgame'. Dark Timeline: The Netflix Show Explained. This is a basic premise, and will be important throughout the discussion. I thought “Dark” creators Jantje Friese and Baran Bo Odar would take the story to a logical and thematically appropriate stopping point, and the cycle would continue forever. Of course, as the story progresses, and we reach 2020 in the story, the caves will only be usable to travel to 1987, and 1954. Adam and the Sic Mundus, short for "Sic Mundus Creatus Est" – "Thus, the world is created" – represent the dark. Helge then retrieves their bodies via the cave system and deposits them where they are subsequently found. Regina survived because her real father was Bernd Doppler, the guy who ran the nuclear power plant before Claudia took over. Also that gun is Hanna’s gun that she got from the bag and passports. He wanted to “split time” and switch to the universe where they were still a live. What this implies is that the universe of Dark is deterministic at a macro level (no saving people, no altering the overall timeline) but nkn-deterministic at a micro level. Dark Souls 3 rids itself of the Humanity and Human Effigies from previous entries in favor of Ember, but the concept remains largely the same.In Dark … Charlotte had a daughter named Elisabeth, and then Elisabeth had a daughter named Charlotte, and then baby Charlotte was brought to the past and became the original Charlotte. In the scene, which takes place in the present day, we see Regina (Deborah Kaufmann), Hannah (Maja Schone), Katharina (Jordis Triebel), Peter (Stephan Kampwirth), Bernadette (Anton Rubtsov) and Woller (Leopold Hornung), as well as a picture from the 80s of young Regina with Claudia and Bernd Doppler. Scenes don’t contradict each other. If he does not kill himself, future Jonas does not go back in time to try to save him, and does not learn that he has to take Mikkel back in time, consequently, Jonas will never be born. Is there anything in missing/have incorrect about these other mechanisms? There’s no beginning or end of this sequence. We see numerous examples of this in season 3 — most notably, when the young Jonas is killed at the end of episode 5. When does Jonas take Mike through the cave? I just finished re-watching season 1 last night and it’s great to pick up on the little things throughout that make more sense now we know who everyone is and what they’re up to! This sounds complicated, so let us boil it down. And he may actually be some kind of exception to the laws of these universes in some way, but, again, there’s not much to go on with them that we’ve parsed yet. Unfortunately, there will eventually be spoilers, but I will hide them, so people who just want the basic mechanism explained do not ruin their enjoyment with the examples. The dark web is a part of the internet that isn't indexed by search engines. (linked to the grandfather paradox) like, the characters believe they can change things, otherwise they would have no free will, BUT they can't and their will to change is actually already written and "will happen"? Hi! Absolutely agree, I like the show for this very reason. June 27, 2020. /*# sourceMappingURL=https://www.redditstatic.com/desktop2x/chunkCSS/ReredditLink.f7b66a91705891e84a09.css.map*/. ._1PeZajQI0Wm8P3B45yshR{fill:var(--newCommunityTheme-actionIcon)}._1PeZajQI0Wm8P3B45yshR._3axV0unm-cpsxoKWYwKh2x{fill:#ea0027} Silja. We can list countless examples of this time of time travel: Back to the Future, Butterfly Effect, X-Men, Donnie Darko, etc. This is not far off from a theory I have about the “Terminator” franchise. If this were the case, the god particle of Adam in the 20s would have no significance, as Adam claims the particle can be used to travel to any point in time, surpassing the limitations of the cave/machine. Now I have a question ; did I understand well that, this means the show play around this question of determinism or not? I explained it like this to my GF and it cleared a lot of things up. That's why he doesn't remember, he is yet to do it at that time. It was written by alternative Martha, presumably at some point after middle Jonas has already returned to our timeline (she could have just told whatever was in the letter to middle Jonas personally), I have a feeling that Noah/Adam's book will be very important in explaining how certain character know about their future in S3. Also Peter gives the journal to older Jonas, so now older Jonas has the same journal and gun as Adam!!! Also, what is it that causes Jonas' dad to kill himself? That’s the term that describes, to cite one example from the show, how Charlotte could be her own grandmother. The Dark Zone is back in The Division 2, and it’s even more robust than ever. Tannhaus’ home. When two children go missing in a small German town, its sinful past is exposed along with the double lives and fractured relationships that exist among four families as they search for the kids. Dark avoids this problem completely by assuming that the universe works in such a way that its physical laws simply do not allow causal determinism to be violated. ._1x9diBHPBP-hL1JiwUwJ5J{font-size:14px;font-weight:500;line-height:18px;color:#ff585b;padding-left:3px;padding-right:24px}._2B0OHMLKb9TXNdd9g5Ere-,._1xKxnscCn2PjBiXhorZef4{height:16px;padding-right:4px;vertical-align:top}._1LLqoNXrOsaIkMtOuTBmO5{height:20px;padding-right:8px;vertical-align:bottom}.QB2Yrr8uihZVRhvwrKuMS{height:18px;padding-right:8px;vertical-align:top}._3w_KK8BUvCMkCPWZVsZQn0{font-size:14px;font-weight:500;line-height:18px;color:var(--newCommunityTheme-actionIcon)}._3w_KK8BUvCMkCPWZVsZQn0 ._1LLqoNXrOsaIkMtOuTBmO5,._3w_KK8BUvCMkCPWZVsZQn0 ._2B0OHMLKb9TXNdd9g5Ere-,._3w_KK8BUvCMkCPWZVsZQn0 ._1xKxnscCn2PjBiXhorZef4,._3w_KK8BUvCMkCPWZVsZQn0 .QB2Yrr8uihZVRhvwrKuMS{fill:var(--newCommunityTheme-actionIcon)} But when time stands still, the chain of cause and effect is also momentarily broken,” Claudia continued. Adam knows that Jonas will be saved and that the fact that he himself is responsible for Martha's death is instrumental in Jonas eventually becoming Adam. .ehsOqYO6dxn_Pf9Dzwu37{margin-top:0;overflow:visible}._2pFdCpgBihIaYh9DSMWBIu{height:24px}._2pFdCpgBihIaYh9DSMWBIu.uMPgOFYlCc5uvpa2Lbteu{border-radius:2px}._2pFdCpgBihIaYh9DSMWBIu.uMPgOFYlCc5uvpa2Lbteu:focus,._2pFdCpgBihIaYh9DSMWBIu.uMPgOFYlCc5uvpa2Lbteu:hover{background-color:var(--newRedditTheme-navIconFaded10);outline:none}._38GxRFSqSC-Z2VLi5Xzkjy{color:var(--newCommunityTheme-actionIcon)}._2DO72U0b_6CUw3msKGrnnT{border-top:none;color:var(--newCommunityTheme-metaText);cursor:pointer;padding:8px 16px 8px 8px;text-transform:none}._2DO72U0b_6CUw3msKGrnnT:hover{background-color:#0079d3;border:none;color:var(--newCommunityTheme-body);fill:var(--newCommunityTheme-body)} The mechanics of all this are not extremely clear. So once he returns to the "original" timeline where he first found out about time travel, he is already in his fifties, while his younger self is still around 18. What’s most notable here, of course, is who’s missing. As soon as a radioactive atom decays inside the steel chamber, the Geiger counter releases the hammer, which smashes the vial of poison. -The time machine Claudia gives Tanhaus the blueprints to create is said to be able to take a person anywhere in time, yet (I believe, not 100% on this) we only see it used to travel in increments of 33, presumebly because people using it are trying to stop the "critical" events from happening, which all happen around the cave system's timeline? Sunset is followed by sunrise, over and over. Before we really get into it, I wanna point everyone to a site Netflix set up to help you keep track of all the characters and their relationships with each other.

Dark season 3 ending explained: Who died at the end of Dark? ... “Dark” is complicated, and its ending is no different. For the moment, imagine that the death of someone occurs exactly at the 50-mark on the ruler. Let's get down to business! And if you’ve watched “Dark” all the way through, then you know it’s full of these sorts of loops. Time travel is tricky business, so join us for a deeper dive into the mind-bending finale of Netflix's Dark. Every step had to be taken exactly as before. We know he wanted to use it to bring his loved ones back to life, but we didn’t know what his plan was. Showrunner, Henry Cavill Explain How the Timeline Works. Did I miss something? It was likely given to young Noah by Adam, to be delivered to middle Jonas. Interestingly, Adam knows full well (at least that is my understanding) that alternative Martha will save Jonas. Also Read: Confused About 'The Witcher' on Netflix? Ulrich (Oliver Masucci) is gone because Bartosz (Paul Lux) was his great-grandfather, and like with Charlotte this eliminates his kids, Magnus, Martha and Mikkel. And Bartosz wouldn’t exist at all. That’s also plausible, but I think that either way it’s beyond the realm of what we can track with certainty because we don’t really know what his deal is. Which in turn means that breaking the loop is another facet of the loop itself. Claudia: “I’d have liked to spare you all of that. .FIYolDqalszTnjjNfThfT{max-width:256px;white-space:normal;text-align:center} And by doing so, allow the cat to simultaneously exist in both states, dead and alive? Dark avoids this problem completely by assuming that the universe works in such a way that its physical laws simply do not allow causal determinism to be violated.
