Advertisements There's one thing I still have absolutely no clue on, and am curious as to anyone's speculation: Why is the BigBadOrganization so determined to trigger a worldwide blackout not only once, but twice (and potentially more)? Their semi-important players all seem to be awake during the blackouts, which means that seeing that particular future isn't their goal (we know they can trigger localized blackouts whenever they want). So they for some reason want the entire world to be unconscious for 2-5 minutes so they can have free rein to do... what? I can't remember even a single hint being dropped about the motive. Everyone was so hell-bent on figuring out what caused it that no one ever bothered to ask why.
