In the alternate future in the finale, Finn has become a trainee-probation worker. It's certainly not because he likes his superior, a psychotic gay man who tries to hit on him. It's not because he couldn't get a better job with his 8 GCSEs. It's because he knew that if Jess returned then the community centre is the first place she would go.

This is in response to the above; perhaps [[spoiler:Future Simon]] was able to gain Alisha's attraction power and thus cancel it out. He gains other powers through relationships that will be formed in later series.

'''The Personality Powers are not set in stone'''
This seems to be heavily implied by Super Hoodie showing different powers to [[spoiler: Simon]]. Radical shifts in personality will trigger new powers. Specifically this means that:

The storm also gave power to places turning the centre into a EldritchLocation. In the Community Centre's case it got the power of being a WeirdnessCensor. This helps explain how so many people could die/go missing and the public at large not notice or care.

His was another personality power, as the act of rape is disempowering to whoever is being raped. Then maybe someone killed him out of revenge, so Alex got his lung.

* He's long since done transitioning, but he still remembers having a female body. He was likely also sexually abused at one point, these two things may have some connection. This would explain several of his comments and actions, as he tends to cease his normal mood of extreme apathy for BeserkButton rage when these issues are brought up. [[spoiler: Assuming Shaun stays dead we'll probably never know, but the WMG is still there.]]

Alisha dies, and Simon is unable to save her. He convinces Kelly to design for him a time machine. He may plan to just go far enough back to save her, but the machine sends him all the way back to series 1, or he may realize "this is how it has to be" and plan to go all the way back, intentionally completing the stable time loop.
Secondary thought: if the time machine is built in Simon's flat, or even IS Simon's flat, the residual temporal energy might explain why Simon and Alisha remember her telling him that he's Super!Hoodie even though Curtis rewound time.
