*** No, it can't have been [[spoiler:Yomiel]]. Because [[spoiler:he specifically says that he can't rewind time]]. She probably really does just have a Sixth sense.

** [[spoiler: Also, if Yomiel let go of Lynne and ran away, it's possible the meteor could have hit Lynne, schroedinger-ing her as a child.]]

** After you save Jowd, he gains the ability to sense you. Maybe Beauty was saved by [[spoiler:Yomiel.]]

** [[spoiler: Also since we don't see it, his path could have been both much more convoluted and also involve many time jumps and manipulations of his own to engineer an opportunity.]]

* Two questions regarding the ending: [[spoiler:Who gives kitten Sissel the red neckerchief in the ending timeline (I'm assuming Yomiel gave it to Sissel in the game's timeline), and why do the Noisy and Curry-Loving Jailbirds still have their striped "jailbird" clothing if Yomiel never possessed them and committed their crimes?]]

* Couldn't [[spoiler:Ray have posessed Lynne's corpse in the first timeline to go back before her death and convince Sissel to help, rather than wait ten years?]]

** Though the game makes no hints or mentions to it, this troper believes the rule was put in place to prevent [[spoiler:Sissel from bringing Alma (Jowd's wife) back to life. When Sissel saves Lynne for the second or third time, she asks why she doesn't have the same powers as him, because according to her, they would help. Considering she is looking into a murder case, she may have been considering trying to save Alma with ghost tricks. Although even if they could, Yomiel was there, and he was determined to kill her.]]

** It might be in case Sissel got the sporadic idea to try and save a bunch of random dead people. Or better yet, it was likely a subtle hood-wink from the writers to avoid would've have otherwise been a hanging question of "if he can go back to save people's lives, wouldn't that mean he can save literally every single person who's ever been killed by something other then natural causes?". Limiting it to people who've been dead for only 24 hours limits the unfortunate implications that he could end up accidentally saving...say, [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/HitlersTimeTravelExemptionAct Hitler]]. Just to use an example - My point is that it limits the implications for what Sissel could actually use his powers for (whether it be for good or for evil). Especially since the end of the game reveals [[spoiler:He will actually exist forever. If they didn't have Ray drop that line in it'd have basically meant Sissel was a horrific abomination who had unlimited god like powers.]]

***Of course [[spoiler:he died]]. [[spoiler:We can clearly see Sissel's soul]] just before the credits roll. You can't [[spoiler:show a soul if you're not dead, even if you're in the alive-dead state that Yomiel was in, which I consider to be more dead than alive.]]
