Ending Explained –

According to me, the theories are about the card- the Brenin.  So let’s move to the final scene of the TV show. What timeline did he return to? Was it even a timeline, or was it a parallel universe or another situation? The final suggested something completely different. And the outcome of that character and any other characters with these theories is very central to cutting a Brenin and his family.

So the ending scene was found open to interrogation. It can be interpreted a few ways – is there a floor with the delivery of the TV show or is it intentional? So let’s begin with theory number one. So this incorporates time travel. Let’s engineer with Kyle’s story arc. In the first season, Carl informs his wife Joy that he got accepted odds that a night flyer. So he does spend the 6 months after that point preparing for his trip. 

At that time the Celia virus infected his daughter Sky and it was Kyle’s call his decision not to evacuate to a safe place because of his preparations for the night fly trip. The resulting incident is that the daughter died.  And he continued on his journey upon the Nightflyer and we kind of saw the result of his mental state after that point. The first part of the begins when Kyle starts using the memory machine of the memory module, but it’s when it’s powered with the Volcker in tech.

So he speaks to his daughter who points and informs him of an alternate situation, so she was saying that she is alive and she witnessed his departure from the earth. This is a direct contradiction to Kyle’s memories himself. So at this point, she is referring to an alternate timeline, a timeline where she was sent to her Aunt Jane’s and never contracted the Celias virus and she was able to witness her father’s departure from earth and go into the Nightflyer.

At the end of the season when Kyle falls into the gigantic volk rinse winter and he returns to earth 6 months before him leaving this is the same date, same time, the same place where the show opens. So he is gone back in time to correct his big mistake to save his daughter. So this is now the timeline of his daughter who approached him within a Vulcan-powered memory suite. So in this timeline, he saves his daughter by sending her to her aunt’s place and he still travels in the night flyer.
