Forty-Two: ***SPOILERS***

The film left it ambiguous as to whether Sara's influence was going to be enough to prevent Cid from becoming a violent adult. The audience doesn't know because Joe isn't alive to see the result of his actions. Just putting Sara and a well-adjusted Cid at the end of the third timeline misses one of the major themes in the movie--his future is still cloudy, and we have no idea whether Joe's sacrifice was worth it.

I think Timeline C should encompass Sara and Cid in a box, and call it "Schrodinger's Cid"...

Hoboclown: I never got why Joe B (to use this graphic's terminology) had a different outcome than Joe A. If it was a Loop, why was Joe A able to be sent back and killed by Joe B, but Joe B decided to fight back against Joe C? Theoretically Joe A had also already killed a previous Joe in his past, so he knew the end result and was able to be captured and sent back anyway.. Did Joe A never meet the Chinese woman and fall in love? And why not?

Also yeah, the Rainmaker Cid that killed Joe B's Chinese wife would have existed in a world where Joe A never came back and killed Cid's mother, and Joe B never stepped foot on his farm. What would he have against Loopers? The infographic just assumes the mother dies in the A timeline but never really explains how.
