Kirshner reveals he was visited by The Witness years ago and given information to create people immune to the effects of time.

2020

Cassie arrives, under orders from 2044’s Jones to kill 2020’s Jones so that she never invents time travel (and thus the Messengers can never use it to go travel to the past, destroy primaries, and thus destroy everything). Cassie learns any attempt to kill Jones results in getting caught in a time loop, so she secretly saves Jones’ daughter but leads Jones to think her daughter died, maintaining Jones’ mission to create the time machine. (Episode #8)
