In episode 16 (6 of season 2) of Netflix series Dark, called "An Endless Cycle", the main character Jonas finally has the chance to prevent the horrible thing that happened to his family. However this is what happens:
Jonas tries to talk his father out of committing suicide. It turns out his father was not planning to kill himself. Then Jonas finds out that he himself has started his fathers misfortune by leading the young Mikkel to 1986. Then Claudia shows up and says that the world in which Micheal/Mikkel does not kill himself is no good either. As in this one is no good and the other one is no good too. All the trauma is forgotten and also all the hard work Jonas put in to prevent the traumatic suicide of his father. Without much discussion they all agree that Michael should hang himself.
How is it possible that a person who Jonas does not even know very well can persuade him with one sentence to be an accomplice in something so horrible and something he was trying so hard to prevent?
What i would have expected was
Michael urging Jonas to take Mikkel to 1986 so as to make sure Jonas is born - at least as a parent that would be my sentiment. Or maybe have that subverted and make Jonas choose between being selfish and lead Mikkel away or have his existence wiped from history. But this is not discussed at all between Jonas, Michael and Claudia.
