Jack Carter is married to Allison. Henry is married to Kim. Then Kim's body is found fused into the Artifact chamber wall, and two realities (one with a dead Kim, and one with a live Kim) start colliding. Carter's van from 2006 appears suddenly and is hit. A tornado from 2006 appears and tears up downtown. Its discovered that Henry had gone back in time to save Kim from being killed by the Artifact, generating a temporal paradox. With the help of Stark and a Artifact fragment (which has temporal properties) given them by Henry, Carter sends his mind back in time to October 3, 2006, the day of the accident. Carter prevents Henry from saving Kim, and the timeline is saved. Stark has a sample of the Artifact (which is an artifact from the Big Bang), but the Consortium wants it, and has commissioned their agent Beverly to get it. I sure hope Jack Carter didn't just start a 3rd timeline! Carter solved the problem by restraining Henry. What would have happened if he had instead acting to stop Kim and Stark from drilling into that Artifact in the first place? I suspect that the fact the Artifact was drilled into may have contributed to the temporal anomalies.
