    Taking your explanation as fact, sure, but I never was able to put that together just by watching the show. It was too dense with characters, relationships, times and worlds. For instance, when Hannah showed up with Silja, I had no clue what her significance was.

    You do need a scorecard, but my explanation is fact.

    I watched it twice and followed closely. it's all there, but agree, difficult to follow if not focused.

    Rob brought up an interesting point. In the alt world there is no Jonas because Mikkel did not travel back (it was actually Jonas who called him into the caves and sent him back in time); so hot do we still have all the loopy characters?

    The two alt-worlds split in 1986, so perhaps the people who had traveled to times before that date in the original alt-world and their descendants were orphans from another timeline..?

    We never had confirmation that Tannhaus' machine in the origin world ever worked. It split the universe but they never showed where/when/if he went. I've been going under the assumption that so the time traveling was done in the other two universes. But that doesn't really work without some Deus ex (time) machina explanation.

    Or maybe I'm just overthinking it. It's just a tv show, after all.

    My point being that the alt-worlds seem to be identical up to 1986. Then they split into the Michael world and the non-Michael world.

    I found it wasn't as confusing after watching it three times.

    It's amazing how well it all hangs together. Eventually.
