I can see events going that way as well, NeeKnight. It still explains how he knows the SWAT Kats and doesn’t undo anything. Time is still rewritten by the Pastmaster. And yeah, it is most likely that Pastmaster was sent already to the Dark Ages given that spell. I dunno why I was thinking he may have went back to prehistoric times, guess because the boys did.

And yeah lol there are still timey wimey, Jeremy Bearimy stuff to sort out but these theories at least explain the bare bones of what happened.

Filling in plot holes and sorting out all the timey-wimeyness is definitely one of the fun parts of being a fan of this show, and especially this episode :lol:

My own theory (which I mapped out in A Prophecy Reclaimed) is pretty much the same as NeeKnight's: the Pastmaster we see in this episode is the "present" one, who was released from the chest, fought the SWAT Kats in modern Megakat City, and then went back to the past to try and pick up where he originally left off. He didn't try to release his past self or otherwise meddle with anything prior to his imprisonment because, as he says, "disrupting the timestream is so unpredictable".

I also agree with those who've said that Megalith City isn't located in the exact same place as Megakat City. Even with how the series sometimes plays fast and loose with locations, Megalith is inland and near canyons and cliffs, while Megakat is on the coast. It never came up in the fic, but my idea was that the port town Greenwater, which is two days' travel on foot from Megalith City, is the settlement that would later grow into the Megakat City we know and love.

In the backstory I gave in The Radical Beginning, Megalith City was destroyed in a cataclysm that dropped it into the canyon a long time after the events of this episode. The survivors, including Callista's descendants(s), then moved and founded what would eventually become Megakat City.
