Hey guys,  recently I watched Back to the Future 2 and I wanted to present a theory as to where Caitlin could be.  Check it out so in the Movie Marty (from 1985) goes to the way future (20XX) with Doc, Jennifer, and Einstein to save his Kid, there Future Biff takes a sports almanac and the Time traveling delorean to 1955 to give it to his young self.  Future Biff comes back to 20XX, Marty takes the Time traveling Delorean to 1985 to see a time line change - 1985 has become corrupted portraying a All powerful rich Biff.  Doc and Marty must now travel to 1955 to stop Future Biff giving the almanac to Young Biff. 

THEY LEAVE JENNIFER AND EINSTEIN IN THE CORRUPT 1985. 

In the ride to 1955 Marty asks Doc what will happen to Jennifer and Einstein.  Doc says nothing the world will Change around them. 

In 1955 Doc and Marty Successfully destroy the Almanac guareenteeing that the corrupt 1985 will never happen.  Marty and Doc come back to 1985 to see everything has changed to normal and Jennifer and Einstein in the exact spots as they left them. 

SO.....

Peter and Caitlin traveled into a Future Corrupted Virus broken out Time.  Peter (accidently)  leaves Caitlin there.  Went back to his Time and destroyed the Virus Guareenteeing that the Virus Future never happens.  At that exact moment corruped Virus Future New York changed into Normal one and I believe Caitlin is still in the exact spot where he left her (just like how Jennifer was).  The virus camp she was in probably turned into beautiful Central Park at that moment. 

Heres the DIFFERENCE.  Marty came back to 1985 to meet Jennifer.  Peter did not go back to the Future to meet Caitlin.  I think Caitlin is just fine in New York but she is a year ahead of everyone.  So if Peter (w/Hiro) travels to the future they can still bring Caitlin to the past.

I know this is all crap that you guys probably already know but watching Back to the Future 2; I really couldnt stop thinking of how to save Caitlin.   All this is a theory which tells me Caitlin is fine but how to get her back that still remains the question.

that was great. i totally forgot about back to the future. and this makes perfect sense.

think about the latest graphic novel and it shows heroes is using the same time concept as bttf.

but peter does not need to go into the future though maj. all he has to do is wait a year and he'll be able to see her again. she'd be back in the time line again, she''d have just skipped a year. the opposite effect to the old (should be young) time traver from the carnival.

and catlin would have all the memories of the two time lines, as would jennifer in bttf.

Hey nice one sylarISgood...That would work If PEter were to wait a year he could meet up with the Caitlin he left behind.  Hmm. if Peter meets her at the exact spot, exact time he left her it will be as if he never left her at all.  She basically would have lost a year but her timeline would be reestablished.....I WONDER....if that was the Point that the writers were trying to accomplish...Maybe since we all were asking about her..she will be returning to the show since a year has passed and her time line has been restablished.  Techincally a year has passed since the events of the Fugitives Arc.  right?

I thought in the show, it was about 2 months since Fugitives?

Ok if that is the case then my next question is has it been a year since Peter stopped the virus...because that could explain why he hasnt crashed into Caitlin yet.

well I was thinking about something which could determine the time frame of the show, and so far i've only got claire's schooling. this is a little rough-shot as i've done no research, but claire started college this season, and when was it claire and mamma petrelli was looking at suitable colleges?

there may be a more suitable 'something' to determine the timeframe, so i'll leave it at that til my festive hangover is complete:)
