*** [[spoiler:Actually, due to the nature of timelines explained in the sequel, ''all the endings are canon''. Safe was a colossal failure to save Kanny, but the information that was gathered from it was needed to transmitted to the Junpei of the True timeline. This actually means that she not only experiences her theoretical death in the incinerator (depending on the idea of that was an idea incepted into Seven, Clover and Snake), she experiences death through Junpei at least three times]].

* Why does June make such a big scene both when everyone's looking at the destroyed body of the 9th Man and, what everyone thought, was Snake? At first you'd just pass it off as a kinda realistic reaction to being in such a tense situation while seeing such mangled dead bodies. But then you find out [[spoiler:she wouldn't be feeling like she was in a tense situation, and she was the one who set up both of the deaths. It could have just been to make herself look the part of the innocent. Although...it's highly likely she did it to get Junpei to focus on her and stop looking at the bloody scenes. ''She knew her 12 year old self was watching through Junpei's eyes''. She did it so her 12 year old self didn't have to see the horrific scenes for any longer then need-be]].

* Through the various endings, Junpei frequently [[spoiler: has a HeroicBSOD where he becomes a 'shell of his former self' and is 'no longer Junpei.' In most circumstances, this is the result of June's death. Watching the events from the past, Akane's horror at learning of her own death is entangling with Junpei's, making it hard to tell who Junpei any longer. The only time that Junpei recovers from these shocks quickly is when he confirms that she had died in the past; a shock, but a paradox that the both of them can push aside their despair for to try and puzzle through it.]]

** ''Zero Time Dilemma'' offers another but no less Fridge-Brilliant explanation: [[spoiler: When C-team got their hands on the antidote Carlos had a vision of Junpei's death in the pantry timeline. Shifters can see other timelines and espers can resonate with each other amplifying their abilities. That's why they saw it. Seven might not be esper himself but he was surrounded by espers playing the Nonary Game, that's why everyone involved remembers both timelines.]]




to:

* It seems weird at first glance that Junpei can't figure out what's going on through Akane's head when they're examining the bedroom, especially when Elevator Scene shows that he can be quite horny himself. But he's mindlinked with 12-year old Akane who's still a child, she's too innocent to figure out what her older self is thinking and that confusion is rubbing off on Junpei.

** This one is actually explained in the sequels, although not directly: [[spoiler: Stead was a shifter. He's also a real person who actually died on the titanic. He simply shifted back after getting killed and described it.]]

Added DiffLines:

* This exchange takes [[BlackHumour a whole new meaning]] if you consider [[spoiler: what happened to Young!Akane originally]]:
-->'''June''': Jumpy, you lit the candle.
-->'''Junpei''': Yeah. You want me to light your heart on fire?
-->'''June''': ...
-->'''Junpei''': ...
-->'''June''': Jumpy... Don't quit your day job, okay?

Added DiffLines:

** Also, when Seven tells his past as a cop, we don't see him telling Junpei, instead the story is told to the player directly. [[spoiler: Because Akane already knows.]]

Added DiffLines:

* The entire game is narrated both from Junpei's point of view and in third person. [[spoiler: As it turn out, it's Past!Akane looking through Junpei's eyes.]]

* Just about anything June says or does is so deep in the Fridge it's got freezerburn. [[spoiler: She knows she's watching herself through Junpei's eyes. Her childike naivete, her constant optimism, her references to the Titanic and Stead seeing the future.. this is all stuff she's saying for her child-self's benefit, reassuring her that the answer she's looking for really does exist and that she can survive; Akane is living proof. It also informs her distance from Junpei: no matter how they felt about each other as children, he's a conduit to her now, nothing more.]]
