I decided to load up a new game of 205, and ended up blowing through the first couple of puzzles just to get through them as quickly as possible. One thing that I did was shoot the monster before turning the Maimtron on. I was worried that I wouldn't be able to get Harry Moleman away from Tiny Timmy, but as it turned out, the monster just came back to life.
So much for continuity- although I suppose nobody would have thought that people would do that.
