  • If you manage to go back in time and put Stefan’s toy under his bed in the hopes of saving his mother, you find out it was all for nothing: she was always going to miss her train and have to take the later one. No matter what you do, she’s going to die in the crash. The only thing you can do is decide whether Stefan dies with her.
    • Choosing to go with her results in both of them dying offscreen. When we cut back to the present, Stefan has died in his therapist’s office, seemingly for no reason. The story ends with his therapist in shock and his father sobbing over his body.
