True, so why bother bringing back the old continuity after you've gone to so much trouble to get rid of it? Just for the sake of doing so? What does that accomplish? To be blunt, how does that help attract new viewers? Again, we can't just assume that "restoring the prime timeline" is a goal worth pursuing. Why go to great lengths to accomplish something that doesn't need to be done? Or, more simply, what possible incentive is there for bringing back the old timeline anyway?
