Near the beginning of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children,
Jacob’s grandfather, Abe, is killed by a hollowgast that had been working with Barron.
At the end of the movie, we see this character alive again, apparently because
Barron was killed by one of his hollowgast allies.
It would seem that this is because the events that caused him to be killed never happened.
How does this work, though? The timeline seems to go as follows:
- Barron and the hollowgast killed him in the movie’s present.
Barron goes to Wales and
kidnaps Miss Peregrine from the time loop.
Barron takes her to the present.
The children find
a loop that connects to the present and mount a rescue there.
The hollow kills Barron in the present.
All of this seems to have happened after Barron killed the character in question, though (in his own personal timeline).
How did Barron’s death change any of this?
