See, the more I think about it, the more I'm like - this big, happy ending is a bit too big and too happy. It was Katarina's experience with Cole and Cassie that convinced her to not abort Hannah. Elliot had already left her by then, because of her decision to not go through with the pregnancy. At what point did their lives change so that they ended up together and why? Did they retain all the memories of this eliminated cycle since they were time travelers as well? At what point in their lives would they have gotten those memories back?
And that brings up another point, if Elliot does remember, did the monkey army use (a version of) the serum for their time travelers too? Does that mean all those random henchmen remember as well? Wouldn't that be kinda problematic?
As for the questions about Athan possibly being born, hell Ramse somehow ended up with his son. Seems very convenient that he and Elena would still meet without the apocalypse happening and she would get pregnant with the same egg and sperm that resulted in Sam.
I don't know, with these things and the doctors meeting up and being friends, and Jennifer's freaking unicorn, I'm leaning more and more towards this is the red forest.
It's understandable. The army started working on brainwashing Cassie all the way back in season one and she went through multiple bouts of captivity (in body and mind!). Plus, she's experienced so much loss of loved ones- Aathon, Aaron, Deacon, even her backstory is about the sudden loss of her mother and she's gone through losing/believing she's lost Cole multiple times. Then, she ends up having to kill 7 billion people. I could see how she would be a tad unstable at this point, just saying. I mean, I love the happy ending, Cole and Cassie are my favorite all time ship and I wanted them to get the fairytale, but I'm really leaning the other way.
