"Get Tannen" Predictions (Spoiler warning)

posted by moturu on - last edited - Viewed by 2.1K users

Only read the rest if you completly finished the "It's about Time" part. All the way to the credits.

If you are still reading you should know that Marty begins to dissapear like in Part 1. (Original Part 1(the movie)) And then it says that Marty goes back to 1931. I think it's because he gave the subpoena to his grandfather, so Kid Tannen kidnaps him or something and somehow makes Artie dissapear form existense. Or Judge Brown might think that Artie was a bad guy and make Artie dissapear from existence. But in the Synopis (http://www.telltalegames.com/bttf) it says that Kid might erase Jennifer fron the future. I'm not really sure how that happens. Maybe One of the gang members is her grandfather or her grandfather is another guy like Artie that gets pushed around by Kid. Say what you think will happen! :)

Edit: Alright, now we know Officer Parker is Jennifer's Grandpa, and Trixie Trotter is presumably the singer that dissapears. The Information was received by a Telltale email update thing.

Email as follows

"Following the blockbuster series premiere "It's About Time", the second episode of Back to the Future, "Get Tannen!" will be available for download on the PC and Mac this February. That means it's just a few short weeks until you can find out what happens in the second of five monthly chapters of Marty and Doc Brown's new adventure. You'll be able to get your first look at "Get Tannen!" in the official trailer, also coming soon.

We have a special treat for you, the faithful Interloper subscriber: We're pulling back the curtain on two of the characters that appear in "Get Tannen!", Officer Parker and Trixie Trotter. Officer Parker, Jennifer's granddad, is just a good cop caught up in a bad situation. On top of dealing with Kid Tannen and his goons, he also has a time-traveling duo causing him some problems. Trixie Trotter, on the other hand, is a small-town girl with big-city dreams. She may seem like just another mob moll, but she actually has aspirations for greatness.

What do you think is next for Doc and Marty? Speculate and discuss your theories in the comments of our "Get Tannen!" Predictions blog post and forum thread! Get on it butthead!"

We know that the singer dissapears because in one of the newspaper articles in Edna's house, it says a singer dissapears. Keep looking for clues! :D

  • @R.I.P-Bill said: I'm kind of doubting it. That'd fall under a predestination paradox which the whole film series avoids. The predestination paradox is where a time traveler goes back in time to complete his "destiny". Marty's life would not have changed in Part 1 if those rules apply. He would have gone back in time and convinced his father to be the man he's destined to be. But he changed the course of their lives, adding a new stimuli to the time stream that resulted in an alternate universe where George is a new man.

    maybe i'm reading that wrong, but it seems like you just proved your own theory wrong.:o Also in BttF 2 Marty is back in 1955 (the same 1955 universe from the first movie) going even further behind the scenes to "protect" all the work he did in the first movie. Think about the scene where he has to stop Biff's goons from mugging his other self playing guitar on stage. So the idea that it would be Marty burning down the speakeasy seems plausible to me.

    That actually seems somewhat plausible. Plus, we did see two Martys as the vanishing one ducked beneath the Marty that was still present. xP

    No he's right. The pre destination time travel theory is that time travel is already written into the timeline before it happens; for instance in the terminator timeline, John Connor sends kyle reese back in time from 2029 to 1984 where he impregnates johns mother, thus becoming johns father. The time line would have already expected time travel for this to be plausible. The time travellers wife also uses this theory.

    Back to the future follows the same post desitnation theory as timecop or the hot tub time machine (sorry i cant think of better movies) where the time line does not expect time travel until it happens and thus multiple concurrent timelines exist; So for instance in time cop, Walker goes back in time 10 years, prevents his wife from being murdered and then returns to the present to find her alive.

    As far as what's happened in part II 1955: the part I time travel has already happened hence why marty and doc see those events again. But docs trip to 1885 has not happened yet so for instance the delorean is not hidden in the mine and there is no tombstone of Docs. Those things appear once the delorean gets struck by lightning.

    I think I should point out that I am basing this off of BttF law and not real law. And basically all time travel movies are flawed in some way. The Terminator series seems to go back and forth in it's "laws" And in the later movies they even imply that you can't change your destiny no matter what. So I'm pretty sure that predestination theory only works in BttF as long as you assume that the delorian can universe hop as well. The world of 2015 didn't come crashing down around them when Biff stole the time machine. They were able to actually stay there, then, leave the universe they were currently occupying (still intact) and enter universe b in 1985. And in that case Biff would not have been able to take the Delorean back from 1955 to the 2015 he knew...Actually when they go back to 1955 again wouldn't they be creating a universe c? Whatever, anyway In the realm of BttF we see both Marty and Doc having to complete there destiny by going back in time is my point. It's a little fuzzy anyway.

    Well since we dont know what would happen if there was time travel, movies can make their own rules.

    And the point in the terminator films is that time travel is already in the timeline (if it weren't, thered be no john connor) and destiny is unavoidable; they fail at stopping judgement day despite knowing the future and no matter how hard john tries to stay off the grid and avoid being the leader, he ends up anyhow.

    We have no clue which 2015 biff returns to at the end, all that is seen is doc and marty carry jennifer to the delorean.

    :eek: What about Biffs cane that they found in the Delorean? So we do know that he returned to the 2015 that Marty and Doc were occupying, also they wouldn't have a Delorean to take Jennifer to if it didn't come back. But ultimately the idea that Marty could be the one to burn down the speakeasy is still plausible since like you said, the movie just makes up its own rules. It's still fun to debate this stuff though.

    Yes but we dont know which version of 2015 this is. Is george mcfly still in martys house or does he vanish? I believe it's 2015A (one where biff is rich) but there is no evidence either way.
