I hope there's an official explanation of that. I mean, fannon is great and all in the case Telltale doesn't feel like to explain it, but It would be great if there's an official explanation for that.
But for what I'm really hoping is an explanation of why Sam can see Max's visions. I mean, I can understand that is because the thing of been now the two are, in a way, Player Characters, so, what's Sam or Max knows, the player know, and, in a some sort of explanation, is better for the two know in game what the players know, buuuttt I would like an explanation anyway. I would not complain if we don't get an explanation of that, but it's like why Future Max is using that visor, I just want to know, because I'm a fangirl. End of Line.
