Is There Really Any Such Thing As A Do-Over On 12 Monkeys, After All?

Syfy's TV version of 12 Monkeys continues to play around with the question of whether Cole's time-travel is changing the past, or whether it "already happened."

Only A Time Traveler Could've Predicted Syfy's 12 Monkeys Would Be Good
