Afterwards, Kurisu from alpha line pulls Okabe from the lecture room and asks why he approached her earlier with a concerned look. Minutes later, we hear a scream, clearly Okabe's anguished scream (I'm assuming as he finds out that Kurisu is stabbed).

^This is where I'm lost/confused. Why are there TWO Okabe's now? When in each world line we've only had ONE Okabe with a transfer of his memories. Secondly, thinking about who WOULD stab Kurisu, the only one I could possibly imagine is Suzuha. Suzuha must've stabbed Kurisu upon landing because that way Kurisu wouldn't help SERN out. However, if the Alpha line is supposed to be the good world, then why is Suzuha even in that Alpha line time-traveling back in the first place?

Someone please explain this to me! I think I might've missed something or I am using a bad assumption.
You know how Suzuha's time machine is physical time-travel rather than mental like the D-mails and time-leap machine? Physical time-travel has the possibility of two you's existing at the same time. I'll leave it at that.

^Yeah but currently Okabe doesn't have the time machine, that's why I'm confused >.>

I've only watched the most recent episode, and that's why I'm trying to figure out what he'll do from there. As for where this second Okabe came from, derp I'm lost. Or exactly how far from the future he's coming from.

How could we be sure it was Okabe who screamed ? Ok, the voice seems to be his but we don't have a clue about who screamed.

The only way I can think of having two Okabe would be if he used Suzuha machine but why would he do that ? And how ?? Suzuha wasn't supposed to be in 2010 in the alpha timeline, she went straight to 2000.

Don't worry, your questions will be answered soon enough and it will all make sense

Don't know if this has been stated before but my guess is that SERN's leader must be Kurisu's father. Just thought I'd throw it out there.

Hehe, half right prediction last week... FB was not a new character, but WTF Mr. Braun?!?!?

Anyway, finally Okarin realized that in order to save Mayuri, he must kill Kurisu, which was kind of obvious since ep. 14.

Oh! and I am looking forward to the anime explaination about WTF happened in episode one. In between, about the two Okarin's in that episode, it's my guess, judging by the voice heard (sounded like Okarin having a hard time assassinating Kurisu) and the mail Kurisu received from Okarin, before Okarin send the first D-mail from his point of view.

My hypothesis is that the Okarin that the anime follows is not the first version of Okarin that used D-mail... in his meta-time-linecurve/attractor (if that word makes sense)

Let's also not forget that the Reading Steiner feeling Okarin first experienced as a kid, before enslaving Mayushii... and that scene in the very start of the show after Okarin's monologue/introduction, where he walks off camera with Mayushii... should I guess these are their original versions.

well, before anything else you should be asking yourself "was it really two Okabe" ? We just heard a scream, it could be anyone.

Like I said, it sounded just like his voice. I doubt they would introduce anyone else at this point.

On another hand, do you think they would hire someone just to scream in the first ep ? No, they use a voice they already have.

Okay you do realize there's more than one guy in the seiyuu cast right? Why didn't they use Braun's or some other dude's voice for the scream? Besides, what other male would react to Makise Kurisu's death like that? That anguished scream, that TYPE of screaming, all sounds like Okabe's scream. It's not just the voice that sounds the same, it's also the way in which he screams that make me believe it's Okabe.

This is my speculation on what I think will happen.

Okabe finds suzuha with her time machine and tells her everything that's happened. Kurisu gets stabbed in this timeline so he takes the time machine back in time to before she was stabbed to warn her. From there, I have no idea, but I think that might happen.

Either that or it's Suzuha who stabs Kurisu to stop SERN getting into power.

Why not but in that case, why does the d-mail "Kurisu is dead" change everything ? After Daru receive it, Suzuha is crashing in the building and John Titor from 2000 is obliterated....

Another intersting question is : if Kurisu was found stabbed by Okabe, why did'nt send a d-mail this time ?

i see that basically we all have the same questions unanswered


i'll try to erase one: in ep1 we have a second evidence of a second okabe during the conference time

kurisu herself asks the "current time okabe" what he wanted to ask/say to her 15 minutes earlier. but wasn't "current time okabe", since he doesn't remember meeting her.

we have two other small pieces of the puzzle in ep1 (that still don't fit anywhere particularly well):
1. okabe phone rings during the "kurisu is in a pool of blood" scene (and he doesn't answer)
2. okabe receives a white-noise videocall at some point.

i agree about the "first" d-mail (which Daru doesn't consider in the least, he thought it was spam!): why should have switched worldlines? maybe was because sern reading it?

i have no recollection of a reading steiner mentioned when okabe remembers about his and tutturuuu younger days; which episode was it?

thanks

yeah, the white-noise videocall is strange because it should not be SERN : at this point they aren't aware of his existence....... in fact NO ONE knows about a time machine at this point (it's not even discovered yet) except if that someone comes from the future.

I don't know if it can help but the mail Okabe sent to Daru was received in three parts, Daru say so in the second ep.

Your hypothesis is interesting : that could mean that, knowing Kurisu was dead and that they need her to build the timemachine (how could they know ?) they send someone themselves to save her..... the question is how ? They should not be able to do that yet ! And if Kurisu doesn't build the time machine, they will never be able to !

because....SERN will know about d-mail and send a team to hunt down them again? He has to use another method.

Also, don't forget that in Beta timeline where Kurisu died, no one will develop microwave time machine further. At least, time-leap machine won't exist when Okabe return to Beta timeline. D-mail, maybe. And I don't think Beta-Okarin will even looking for IBN5100 since Beta-Suzuha (aka John titor) won't contact him because she doesn't know him in Beta timeline. (It was implied that she went to year 2000 as John titor appeared since 2000 in Beta timeline not in 2010 like in Alpha timeline- Watch ep 1-3 for details)

Another thing to think......if there are two Okarin in that time...it means that Okarin may run into another Okarin when he returns to Beta timeline since Suzuha's Time-machine can't go back to the future. Another Okarin must be around......

And another thing..... since Suzuha didin't come to year 2010 in Beta timeline, how can time-machine appear on the top of building in 2010 like in Alpha time line????

I am 95% sure that the primary reason why Kurisu doesn't get stabbed is because SERN detected the first D-mail. In regards to your "how" then... here are two possibilities:

1. Following the timeline, on July 23rd (5 days before Kurisu is stabbed), a D-mail appeared on Daru's phone, and thus triggered SERN's detection. SERN tracks down and does some things behind Okarin/Kurisu's back within 5 days that somehow thwarts the assassin's attempt.

2. Here's a more interesting possibility. The moment SERN detected the D-mail, the assassin is predetermined to no longer appear. What I'm thinking of is this (thanks to Marina2's last question for tipping me into this madness ): the beta timeline where Kurisu is killed and therefore there is no dystopia is because of the death of Kurisu. This is a question of predetermation: future Suzuha is sent to the past to kill Makise Kurisu because her death is predetermined so that her future will be bright. Normally, this goes against Steins;Gate's time travel modus operandi (which has been, so far, parallel universe-based), but the mention of physical time travel I think makes this a possible, if somewhat tenuous, answer, since it might operate under a different system. Following this logic then, the reason why Kurisu doesn't die in the alpha timeline is because SERN's detection of the microwave created a future where Suzuha's mission is changed (why her mission changed... my theory is so wild I can't even properly put it into words).

Speculating about S;G is so fun.

One minor mistake - Kurisu dies in the beta worldline, not in the alpha . The whole series takes place in alpha worldline.

More than likely, someone else was using the time machine in the Beta timeline.

There is still something wrong : in the beta timeline where Okabe see Kurisu dead, he send a D-mail wich lead the world to be changed to the alpha timeline. But, just before, another Okabe kick in (let's assume it's him) probably to warn Kurisu but fail.

The only explanation I see is that the second Okabe visit triggered the send of the d-mail, wich mean initially in the beta timeline, Okabe never sent a d-mail, then SERN never discovered him, then they couldn't build a time machine.

In other words, it's because Okabe travelled to the past to warn Kurisu that SERN was able to build a distopya.

But that visit caused the world to switch to alpha timeline (we still need to know why) and leaded to the distopya.

Is my guess wrong ?

I think you may be right and maybe, all of the problems are because of Okabe

I think too that the Titor from 2000 wasn't Suzuha, maybe Daru ?
