    No, but read at your own risk.

    First off, how did Sam A turning into a giant electrokinetic monster go unnoticed by Sam and Max Prime?


    This season's been in New York the whole time, so the other guys' adventures could've been happening anywhere else.

    Second, how did Sam and Max A escape from and survive the destruction of the Mariachi ship? Didn't T.H.E.M themselves escape on the time machine, back to earlier points in season two? How did Max A end up with it?


    In 204, if you go back into the bridge during the final puzzle, you'll see a scene where past Sam & Max run into the elevator before you get a chance to escape on it. I think it was an optional scene, though.

    The mariachis who warn you not to activate the self-destruct are from the past. They jumped forward in time to deliver the warning, then went back to their birthday missions.

    This now means that from this point forward, we have a Max with no memory of anything that happened in the Telltale series other than Culture Shock. Of course, given how Max's memory normally functions, it may be a lateral move.


    There's Max's short-term memory, plus the fact that he functions like a hive mind on the quantum level. Every instance of Max is aware of what's going on with every other instance at all times. That's part of why the spores all acted like Max. And all the weird stuff that only Max could see throughout the season; could they have been images from the other Max's adventures? Maybe.

    I don't understand why people are sad, since Momma Bosco warned you in episode 1 exactly what would happen if you kept using those psychic powers.

    Also all the other characters in the OP could be revived without much trouble. Feel free to keep using them in your fan fiction and nightmares.

    So all the Maxes are pretty much the same?

    That's nice to know, I've spiraled out of that depression. That's too bad for the alternate Sam, though, but he was kind of a jerk.

    Wow, no wonder Max nuked him.

    This made me snicker.

  • You realise that it's just a different Max who has come back... the Max we know and love from Episode 3 of Season 1 is dead.

    Sam will bring the new (old) Max up to speed on the things he missed, and we'll never know the difference.

    You'll know the difference in your heart. Max is dead.

    Well...no, not exactly that's still Max. Who know's maybe in Season 4, there'll be an episode called A tale of Two Max's.
