Unresolved Issues and Open Questions

There are lots of unanswered questions that were never resolved.

  • Like Max Caulfield and Daniel Diaz, where did Alex's powers come from? How did she discover them? Did she have her powers her whole life?
  • What happened to Typhon?
    • The company was most likely shut down after its operation was stopped.
  • Where did Steph go after the story (if Alex didn't form a romantic relationship with her)?
    • She most likely moved to Denver, which was hinted in the bonus story.
  • How did Ryan react when he finally learns the truth about his father? Does he shun him?
    • It is possible that he still cares for Jed, but most likely does not try to reconcile with him because of his deception; however this is unlikely as Jed was willing to put his own son in harm's way to ensure his own safety.
    • It is highly presumed that Ryan cut ties with Jed for his murderous actions.
  • How did Alex really end up in foster care?
    • Based on the flashbacks, the reason why she was at foster care is due to the fact that no one would adopt her at the orphanage.
  • What happened to Diane?
    • She is believed to have been arrested along with Jed.
  • Where did Alex and Ryan/Steph go afterwards (if Alex formed a romantic relationship with one of them and chose to leave town)?
  • Will Eleanor pass away sometime later in the future?
  • What do the dreams and flashbacks that Alex had during the start of Chapter 5 represent?
  • Where did Riley and Mac go (if they left town)?
    • Should they both leave town, it is possible that they left together to start a life together (if their relationship wasn't destroyed).
  • What happened to Leena Clark and Dennis Walker?
    • While it is revealed that Dennis quit his job at Typhon, Leena's fate is left unknown.
      • Leena may have also resigned or got arrested.
  • How exactly did Alex recover from her injuries?
    • The crutches found in Alex's apartment sometime after implies that she may have gone to a hospital or received medical treatment from somewhere.
  • How did Alex survive Jed's attempt to kill her and the fall into the mine?
    • A shot in the head and a high fall are usually fatal in real life, so it is completely unexplained of how Alex managed to survive. It could be possible that her supernatural power kept her alive.
      • On a similar scale, Danial got shot in the shoulder and Max suffered terrible headaches and nosebleeds, and yet they survived, which hints that their powers may have prevented them from getting killed.
      • It is revealed that Jed's gunshot had missed Alex, but the fall still remains unexplained.
  • When and how did Tabitha, Duckie's past wife, die?
  • Are Ryan and Steph still friends if the former sides against Alex?
  • How long will Jed remain in prison?
  • How did the public react when Typhon's plot was exposed?
  • How exactly did John die in the mines?
    • He may have been crushed by falling rocks.
  • Who is Riley's new boyfriend (if she broke up with Mac and didn't leave town in Gabe's future visions)?
  • Who is Charlotte's new boyfriend (if she appears in the Black Lantern during Gabe's future visions)?
  • What were the memories that replaced the memories of Gabe, Jed, and Typhon in the Black Lantern during Gabe's future visions?
  • Where was the place that Alex is performing at the end (if she chose to leave town)?
    • It may be some kind of amphitheater or concert hall, but its location is unknown.
  • What was the cause of Wendy's illness?
