** In the end it's just her and Joe left, and Joe thinks she's been orchestrating the killings. Then she dies, rather than revert her own decay [[spoiler:because she understands now that there's only Joe left to die, and if she doesn't die he will.]]

**A possible reason for Pat existing and having the powers that she does may be that [[spoiler: she is anti-Jory.]] There are quite a few indicators towards this, being that both of their powers are to do with the decaying force of time.

* Pat Conley's power has some weird implications:
** She wanted to get discovered and tell someone about her power. If she didn't, she could just have reversed it.
** She knows exactly what to say to people to get them to do what she wants. If she makes a mistake, she can just redo it. She demonstrates this in very yandere ways to Joe Chip: [[spoiler:I could have married you if I wanted to.]]
** But at that point, aren't you just some sort of alien creepy chameleon? Are you even yourself anymore, when you just reflect back at people what they want?
** So maybe that's why Conley decided to talk to someone about her power after all, and revert the future [[spoiler:where she married Chip]]. Consciously not using her power all the time to do the "right" things, try to be herself instead.
** [[spoiler:Whereupon they all (minus Runciter (?)) die in an accident, which she waited too long to revert.]] She finds she can't revert past the accident.
** [[spoiler:Then Joe Chip dies. Yes, Joe.]] Conley reverts it, but finds that no matter how many times she does, one of them dies. [[spoiler:Because now they are in a universe belonging to Jory, and when he has to eat, he eats!]] She settles on a future where her rival for Joe's affection, Wendy Wright, dies.
** Then they keep dying one by one. [[spoiler:Conley keeps saving Joe, making agonizing decisions about who to let die in his stead]]. Guilty about this, [[spoiler:and especially about Wendy,]] she lies to Joe and says her power has stopped working entirely.
** In the end it's just her and Joe left, and Joe thinks she's been orchestrating the killings. Then she dies, rather than revert her own decay [[spoiler:because she understands now that there's only Joe left to die, and if she doesn't die he will.]]
