*** [[spoiler: While Jefferson might get a kick out of seeing Victoria humbled and afraid, it's doubtful he thinks of her as modeling material. She's not on the tarp in front of the camera; Max is. Jefferson himself says she's "too harsh" for his "lens." Victoria wasn't brought to the Dark Room as a subject, she was brought there until Jefferson could dispose of her. Plus, if you look at Jefferson's interactions with Max even before the Dark Room, it's obvious in retrospect that he's always "liked" her (something similar happened with Kate; she was Jefferson's assistant for a while). But while he may praise Victoria in class, like any good teacher would, whenever they speak outside of that environment, he's anywhere from formal to outright disgusted with her, which is probably not how he'd treat an ideal victim.]]

Added DiffLines:

*** The assumption that Chloe is doomed or not precludes a sensible third option: fate is that Chloe dies at the tine and place shown at the beginning, and fixing the timeline scramble can only happen by Max returning to that spot and allowing it to play out. The cyclone wipes out Arcadia Bay but it's just one manifestation of the scramble (like the double moon that resolves itself as we watch), not a permanent fixture.


* What is so [[SlutShaming Slut-Shamingly]] worthy about Kate's viral video? It's no secret Rachel regularly slept around and there's a rumor she had sex with a teacher twice her age, but everyone has nothing but good things to say about her, Logan sexes up every girl he sees, Victoria sexts other girls' boyfriends, Dana got pregnant and many members in the Vortex Club have hooked up with Rachel, but Kate kissing a few guys is the school scandal?

** When you set a high standard, it's considered a bigger scandal when someone falls short of that. No one expects Rachel, Victoria, etc. to be paragons of chastity/monogamy, but a Kate's super-religious NiceGirl so it's a much bigger pedestal to fall from. If Victoria were caught in the same situation, people probably would just dismiss it, but it's wildly out of character for Kate.

Added DiffLines:

** Max might have been too preoccupied to even think about Victoria and Nathan getting revenge on her. She's recently discovered this new power of hers, she's met up with Chloe after so many years apart and she's concerned about Kate too. Additionally, Max may have tried locking her door in the past only to have Victoria get in there anyway; she's not the kind of person to let a locked door stop her. But it's more likely she was too busy thinking about other things. As for Victoria? She's rich, it's not as if it would be hard to replace anything that got taken or broken. She also more than likely knows that her fellow students either worship her or simply know that messing with her things would be an extremely bad idea.


Added DiffLines:

** That's the Butterfly Effect for you. The smallest event can end up making huge changes. If William hadn't died, then Max would be a lot less anxious about moving to Seattle as she wouldn't be leaving her grieving best friend behind. It's also likely that William's death affected Max as well since she seems very close to him during their scenes together, so add onto the fact that she wouldn't be grieving herself. A Max without that weighing her down might well end up becoming more confident in Seattle, more popular, which in turn leads to her turning out more like Victoria and the Vortex Club when she ends up returning to Arcadia Bay.

Added DiffLines:

** I imagine that Max cannot travel forward to a future where she no longer exists as she wouldn't exist. So she'd just be stuck in the past until she figures out and subsequently changes whatever she did that caused herself to die.

** Professional music equipment has a surprising amount of current going through it. There are many stories of singers being electrocuted while holding a microphone in the rain or touching metal when equipment was ungrounded. Id freak out too if a speaker fell into the pool I was in. Imagine a giant toaster.
