* RippleEffectIndicator: Evan's {{Impaled Palm}}s. When in prison, Evan briefly time-travels back to his grade school classroom to puncture his hands with metal spikes, hoping that the resultant scars will convince his religious cellmate that he has a mystical connection to {{God}}. The scars spontaneously appear on Evan's palms--even though, from his perspective, he should have had them all along.
