4. Does everyone just accept the out-of-this-world events?
Loretta was the first person we saw find out about the science fiction events becoming true. She just accepted it all. We also know that Russ, George, and many others just accepted things that happened to or around them.
Did everyone just accept it all? If that’s the case, why didn’t Jakob feel like he could go to George and Loretta to tell them the truth instead of going back to the body-switching portal without Danny? Why didn’t he tell them that Danny was in his body?
In the end, Danny was the one to tell the truth. People just accepted it all and moved on.
I suppose seeing things like robots get developed would mean people would see other sci-fi events being normalized. That’s especially the case for those who worked at The Loop or knew people who worked there. It would be good to see why the “impossible” events became normalized for so many people.
3. Who runs The Loop now?
Russ passed the running of The Loop onto Loretta. This made a lot of sense for the family and since Loretta was an extremely smart woman. But what about after Loretta’s death?
We can assume that Loretta died. Cole had crossed the thawed water, allowing time travel to be possible. George had died and she was aging by the time Cole got back to them.
With everything that happened to Cole, it would make sense that he wouldn’t want to run The Loop. At the same time, it would make sense for him to want to run The Loop. After all, there were plenty of questions he had. Running The Loop would mean answers.
But what’s to say that he was smart enough to run The Loop? Was there someone else there who had become Loretta’s protege? Is The Loop even still running? This is something for Tales from the Loop Season 2 to answer.
