Jane: Back when Quentin first came to Fillory, in the very first timeline, he was running from grief. His best friend had died tragically. Eliot: Julia. Jane: You, a victim of your own vices. I was worried that I was taking advantage of him, of his sorrow. So the first change I made was to save you, to see if he would still answer Fillory’s call, and he did, and then he died 39 times. I’d hoped this time would be different. Eliot: It still could be. You saved him 39 times. Why not 40? Jane: Because he won. If you took away his sacrifice, you’d lose everything that it brought you. Your life and the lives of everyone around you. Same with your friends Josh, and was it Flenn? Eliot: It was not. Jane: You have to let go of the past Eliot. Let the dead stay dead. Time is a motherfucker, isn’t it?
