    Just finished S3 last night. My only complaint was that they jumped around so much relative to the first two seasons until they got to E7 and E8. I found it more enjoyable when they stayed in one timeline for extended periods as it just allowed for more of a connection to the central characters. I understand they were covering a ton of ground obv. This is a show that I wished I had binged all 3 seasons together to keep some of the details fresh in my mind. I need to read a detailed synopsis of the whole show now.

    Overall I loved it and thought it was pretty perfect as far as the tone it continually set.

    Finished last night. Definitely going to rewatch soon without the GF who I constantly had to keep informed of who people where and think it made me miss some small parts of conversations. Loved the season though and the last 3 episodes do a great job of unmindfucking the first 5.

    at one point there were like 5 Martha’s that shit was hilarious. And Jonas being like “I’m wrong here” listen kid in Alt World you’re not fucking your aunt for starters do you want to go down the rest of the list of why you should just call Alt world your home?

    the in-family killing went from unfortunate mistakes in S1-2 to :ohholkyfuck: in S3

    Also thought we were about to see Victorian Bartosz and Jonas 2.0 throw hands and I was dead certain there would be nothing but closed fist sissy slaps and headlocks

    The ability of this show to nail the casting of the characters is mind blowing. The resemblance of characters throughout the different ages is crazy.

    Cleft Lip trio made for a really great antagonist / evil figure. All three of them nailed it.
    Still think Noah played the part of the "bad guy" the best for seasons 1&2 while they painted him in that light.

    also thought him and Jonas 2.0 were gonna kiss for a second after he choked him

    Just finished. Still trying to wrap my head around it.

    so, Elisabeth kidnaps Charlotte who is her daughter and mother with the help of Charlotte who is still her mother and daughter..correct?

    What world is this? Do they bring baby Charlotte to both new worlds?

    They don't really touch on it in Alt-world that I recall that was just showing how it went down in regularville. But yes that's what happened to get keep that mother-daughter loop constant and presumably how she fell into Tannehaus's lap and why he couldn't tell the young 1950s version in his shop where she came from/who her parents were.

    i guess my question is more regarding the paradox

    How did the “for Charlotte” watch exist?

    it belonged to the OG blind tannehaus in the 1888 scenes. His mother's name was Charlotte so it was for her originally.
    Current Tannehaus gave detective charlotte her name to cover up/remembrance of his dead/missing grand daughter from the car accident
    Elisabeth in the future names her daughter charlotte in remembrance of her mom that she thought died in the apocalypse, who got kidnapped and taken back to give to Tannehaus = cycle

    watch cycle:
    Cleft Lip Gang takes the watch from Blind Tannehaus and give it to Eve
    She gives it to Space Martha to give to Middle Age Jonas along with the letter he burned back in 1888
    Middle Age Jonas keeps it until he is Adam, who gives it to Old Noah once he joins the team
    Noah gives it to young elisabeth in the woods and says it's her mothers
    Elisabeth keeps it until 2053 when they kidnap the baby and take it back - gives the watch to Tannehaus along with the child

    right, but the watch itself is a paradox, right? So tannehaus himself is a paradox and shouldn’t exist in the real world? Am I reading way to much into it?

    real Charlotte is never found. The accident and her disappearance are part of the plan to keep the cycle going. Tannehaus never creates the machine if Charlotte never disappears. Real Charlotte is taken back in time and is tannehaus grandma? Great grandma? And is given the watch.

    new Charlotte shows up, and is given the name just like old Charlotte was given the name. As remembrance of someone thought dead but really just travelled through time

    I have one episode left to watch, will probably finish tonight. Tomorrow at the latest. Some thoughts.

    Sad to say, but I'm disappointed at this season. I really think the scope is too big at this point. I loved how it expanded beyond "present" Winden in season 1 and how it went even further back in season 2. But incorporating an alternate world, which brings about so many versions of each character, some seemingly months or weeks apart, is just too much. And I think it retroactively lessens a TON of huge moments. Jonas and Martha's relationship isn't anywhere near as important when there's this second version. Pretty bummed. I thought season 2 was awesome but it's sprawled out of control at this point. Hoping I'll like the finale a lot and that this paragraph becomes something to make fun of.

    Answers in quote - this is mostly coming from a thread on r/Dark that dug into it (for the watch qustion) the 2nd paragraph is my thoughts/understanding of how it played out). spoilered for reasons

    Well shit

    I think I like the way I had it better honestly. The names being what they were for the same reason, the watch traveling through time like the st Christopher necklace and even tannehaus son saying he had a “feeling” I took for the same deja vu feelings others had and Hannah’s dream at the very end

    Just finished and my head hurts. Few things

    -How did Claudia figure all this out? That went completely over my head and I'm very confused on how she came back from seemingly dying. How did she know that when the apocalypse happens that's when there's a loop hole and how the hell did she figure out the original world?
    -What was the the deal with Martha/Jonas in the portal/Interstellar looking shit where the younger selves were looking at them, but the parents couldn't see?
    -I don't completely get peoples motivations to stay on the loops. Adam/Eve I can get, I guess. Eve just wants her son to live and will keep everyone on loops to see that through. Adam I'm assuming wants to keep the loop so he knows where all the chess pieces are so he can end the shit once and for all. But what about Magnus and Franziska/Tronte/Agnus/etc. Seems like a lot of blind faith going on.
    -Anything more to read into the final dinner scene other than them just toying with us a bit?
    -Woller about to tell his eye story at the end and getting cut off was hilarious

    Finale was really good and now I wanna rewatch the season because I’m guessing I’ll enjoy it a lot more with knowledge of everything.

    Just finished episode six. Whoever was in charge of the casting for this show deserves to have an award named after them.

    Just finished. Thought the finale was incredible. And literally right before the dinner table scene I started thinking about his eye and how it was never explained. Then suddenly poof there he is just chilling with his pals and lover and I got my hopes up. Dammit.
