Quote:If you're talking about a SINGLE timeline, then you can't go back and change your history. Because if you do, then YOUR history is different, and always has been different. So there's no reason for you to go back and change your history. But if you haven't changed it, then the idea occurs to you to change it.
Bro the show just doesn't work that way. The past gets changed on this show. It's an integral part of the show's mythology that time travelers do in fact overwrite the present. I don't know how to keep arguing because you are just simply in denial about a fundamental plot point on this show.
You don't LIKE the way the show does time travel. That's great and all and lord knows the writing on this show can be pretty dumb but ultimately whether you or I like the way time travel works on this show is irrelevant. So many plot points on this show revolve around the timeline being overwritten that I don't see how we can still be arguing about this. It's be like arguing for a week that magic never occurred on Buffy...you could make that argument...but it would be a silly argument because so much of the show revolves around magic.
