I just thought of something!

Remember when the DeLorean was struck by lightning in 1955, sending Doc and the time machine 70 years into the past in 1885? Well in the game episode 1 if you picked one of the side chat options with Doc in jail you can ask him why the DeLorean exists (It was crushed by a train at the end of the third movie).

Well he says something that may interests some fans and says a duplicate DeLorean was sent 70 years into the future in 2025. Well wouldn't that mean there is a duplicate Doc somewhere in 2025?

Maybe a possible plot point for the future? ;)

    Probably not. Remember, the original DeLorean was crushed in BttF III. So there's only one left- the one in the game.

    I know that. The one in the game is the duplicate. However wouldn't that mean there was also a duplicate Doc sent to 2025?

    If the two Docs meet the consequences could be catastrophic!
  • This WAS discussed at the time the first episode came out...with some people believing that the title of the 4th episode 'Double Visions' referred to the existence of two Docs.

    However, since that plot point was never picked up on, we must simply assume that there was no second Doc.

    Maybe the lightining bolt was only able to create a temporal duplicate of non-living things.

    The Delorean that ended up in 1885 was the REAL Delorean, and thus it had Doc in it. The Delorean that went to 2025 was NOT the real Delorean but just a copy of the original...and not even a really stable one (according to Doc in episode 5, though he may have been referring to the instability of that Delorean's timeline)...looking at it from that perspective, it makes sense that Doc was only in the REAL Delorean and not the duplicate.
  • I still believe that there is another doc stranded in 2025 (Assuming the duplicate did not work). When our Doc discovered the DeLorean I assume he brought it back with him to fix it using the time train.

    Now that I think of it, would a duplicate version still be affected by the time stream changes and ripple effect?
  • The time circuits displayed 1885, so that may indicate that the living objects would be sent to that year, while the duplicate would be sent forward the same number of years, without Doc. However, since Doc was sent from November to January, he really should have been sent to September of 2026. Perhaps it's not quite exactly evenly split.
  • If there is though what happens with this other Doc?

    The delorean in the future seems to work and even if it doesn't, it seems like it would be in 2026. Doc obviously didnt know in part III that there was a temporal duplicate (not sure how he eventually does find out). Presumably a doc sent to the 2020's would not know this either so if this Doc existed, he woud have gone back to 1955 to bring Marty back to 1985.

    It's also been brought up why Doc says the flying circuits were shorted out on the one in 1885 but the one sent to the future flies. People theorize that either a second hover conversion was done or that the one sent to the past crashed to wreck the flying circuits.

    Yeah he would have gone to get Marty but what I am saying is what if the duplicate didn't work. It could have crashed like it did in the end of episode 2 of the game. And yeah. What happens to the other Doc? If he could not get the time machine to work, what would he do He would be stranded. That could lead to a possible plot point in the future.

    And to answer your question about how he found it, In the game he said he traveled to 2025 (likely with the time train) and just happened to find it lying around. He probably then brought it back with him in the time train to fix it. There's my theory.
  • How does Back to the future: The Ride factor into all of this? Weren't there a bunch of Deloreans in that?

    The ride came out before the game. So I doubt it's connected.

    ...All three movies came out before the game, too, so I'm not sure why that reasoning makes sense. O.o
