Question: If he dies in the truck when he goes back then how can he go back again in time and show up alive at the end?
Question: The dress Claire is wearing when Doug goes back to rescue her is not the same dress she is wearing at the autopsy. I don't understand this. Also when the terrorist calls Claire about her car, the truck he was using for the bomb had not yet been shot by Minudi. So he called her before he knew he would need her Bronco?
Question: In the initial (or present) timeline, Claire dies; the ferry blows up; Doug is recruited by the FBI and subsequently find himself at the terrorists' camp where an ambulance is sitting in the destroyed building. The presence of the ambulance suggests a future Doug had to come back in time, but then Claire would have been saved. What's up with that?
Question: I got a few questions regarding the 'time-equipment'. 1. what exactly was Doug doing with the red laser when he watched Claire? HOW did he do this? 2. When they observing Claire in her home, she thought somebody was watching her. Was it the bad guy standing outside the door, or was it the cops with the time-equipment?
Question: Claire, with her head covered, is spared from getting her fingers cut off. But in the unaltered timeline, Doug does not appear, thus Claire would have her fingers cut off and burned and would later be found washed up on shore. So shouldn't Claire on the autopsy table be wearing the same dress as when Doug saves her, and not the dress she changes into after she is saved?
Question: What is the reference to the limo drivers at Clair's funeral about. Who is the extra person?
Question: When Shanti draws the diagram from the past to future (along with the river explanation); does it have any relevance with the fact that there cannot be two Doug's? My mum has a theory that the two things relate but I am not too sure. Can anybody clear it up for me?
Question: The timeline in the past is 4 days 7 hours (something like that) and only 1 version of themselves can exist at any time. So if Doug (present) went back and died in the explosion, Doug from the past came to meet Claire. Happy ending, right? So does this mean that due to Doug (present) ceasing to exist, Doug from the past has only 4 days 7 hours to live? I mean, this sacrifice of himself for saving 500+ people doesn't look bad.
Question: How would Doug leave the clues if Claire is already dead? The incident with Carroll happened before he went to her house to wash the blood off, which means she would have already been killed before he could've gone to her house and set all the clues.
