*** Not to mention that even if they have the best fingerprints in the history of fingerprints, they'll only have access to criminal records fingerprint database, so, unless Sean has been arrested for something, they'll never get to him and will probably drop it after some time.

* At the end of the 2011 film ''SourceCode'', Colter Stevens [[spoiler: saves the people on the train, gets the girl]], and finally achieves some closure in his life... until you realize [[spoiler: he has permanently overwritten the mind of another man and is now living a stolen life.]]

**** [[spoiler: If they're always using Colter as their quantum leap-informer, they will notice at one point that all the strangely averted terror attacks were foiled by someone using the same M.O. over and over again. Which should give them a hint that something ist really really strange.]]

***** [[spoiler: In that case, it'll probably be conspicious that all major terrorist attacks in the vicinity of the city are thwarted with some weird fall-guy chained to a railing who admitted to the crime via voice-mail. After all, who says Colter doesn't have the same M.O. all the time he saves the day?]]



* In the original timeline Colter is dead and gone, rather than sticking around to help avoid future crises, and we've no idea if anyone can replace him. Could you argue he abandoned his own reality and everyone in it for the sake of creating a personal happy ending reality of his own?

* Noticed Goodwin behaves strangely distant at the beginning of the movie, as if she had some information no one else had, and very ambivalent about the whole thing, though readily helpful towards Colter as the movie progresses? [[spoiler:That's because she probably already received a call or text in this universe from another successfully catastrophe-preventing, universe-jumping Colter prior to the events of the movie, who informed her about the potential of the project and asked her to cooperate with this universe's version of him - like he does at the end with the Goodwin from the pocket universe/AlternateUniverse. At the beginning, she still is somewhat confused about this, but the longer the movie progresses, the more she accepts that she wasn't the victim of some very strange phone prank.]]

** [[spoiler: It's made quite explicit that source code runs at a quantum level, and an inadvertent side-effect is that the universes it creates are not temporary. As each universe is a carbon copy of the original save Colter's presence in Sean's body, he is essentially exploring the full past and not just Sean's subjective memories.]]

** On the other hand, it's possible they never get enough info to go off of. No one seemed to pay much attention to him following [[spoiler:Derek]] on the train, so exactly how much reliable eyewitness testimony can be found is debatable. And while they have his fingerprints, it wouldn't do them much good if they don't have definite samples from him.

***** [[spoiler: That it true for the original world, but in the alternate universe's the source code may never be needed. if Colter has perfect runs in ever mission then there could be a universe where the Source code is never used.]]

** It would happen in a different reality each time, because every trip into the Source Code is a different reality. It's the same reason the Rutlege we see for most of the film didn't receive the phone call.

* I found this quite tricky to follow, but work with me here: [[spoiler:So he goes back in time and in one life decides to call his dad to say "I worked with your son, he was a great man etc. etc". If we assume that an attack like the train bombinb happens once a year, that means that, with Coulter not remembering any of his past lives, he will continue to call his dad every time, meaning that his dad will never be able to forget him]]

*** [[ItGotWorse It gets worse.]] [[spoiler: Colter appears to be absolutely fine residing in Sean's body without letting anybody else know. The woman who had already fallen for Sean (having waited, for months, for him to ask her to have coffee) has no idea that he's been [[BodySnatcher body-snatched]] by a soldier from a parallel universe; his parents will never know what happened to their son; his friends will never know why he [[NotHimself suddenly dropped all contact with them]], and his students, at least some of whom he's probably formed close, mentoring relationships with, will have no idea that this is a different man. Sure, he might be "close enough" to Sean psychologically to be a good fit, but just imagine any of that happening to your loved one, your child, your friend, or one of your favorite teachers. Or to you. And when he sees his reflection at the end of the movie, reminding himself of all of this? He's smiling because he's next to the woman who will never know she's with a different man. Brrr.]]
