Also how the F did Okabe get out of there this time? Last time it KIIINDA made sense in that DARPA and STRATFOR were in an open gunship fight and had better thing to do, and professor was down and therefore unable to order them to grab all people familiar with time travel.
But this time there is no gunfight, or are we supposed to think that DURPA still swoops in even after STRATFOR destroys the time machine? And Leskin is injured in that fight?
Because Okabe REALLY shouldn't have been able to get off that roof. He really shouldn't be "just another civilian".
Okabe hypothesized the time machine being destroyed is a convergence point. This is most likely right. It's the same as the time with Mayuri. Every time he tries to do something different, the world will change things up so the result will be the same. Neither Leskinen, Reyes, nor Kagari were on the rooftop at this time last time.

Okabe managed to escape for the same reasons he managed to escape from the Rounders hundreds of times in Steins;Gate.

Looks like we won't get a repeat of Steins;Gate, given the after credit scene. Looks like the time leap machine malfunctioned this time. No sure what the hell will happen to Okabe, and we won't find out for another two weeks as episode 20 has been delayed.
