So is Stephanie finally on her way back east to track down the Blair Witch?
Pointless arguing is one of the three pillars upon which the Internet is built. The other two are of course cat pictures and porn.

@vampire hunter D: I doubt Steph cares anymore, all things considered.

I found that part of the ending depressing. (Right "now" she's probably still resisting her fate in Mothworld.)

...which is ignoring that the Reptilians had technology that allowed them to move across space-time, which we saw when they attacked the Mothworld directly. So Steph and the Mothmen could have faced total annihilation at any moment.

Also, consider the fact that Leonard and Co. didn't need 7 centuries to reach Steph. They wound up at Mothworld in only a few time jumps and so did the Reptilians, only moments later.

Here's a RL case of a woman who faked being a teenager to relieve her high school days and become a cheerleader, although her situation ended almost as bad as Lori's.

Where are you getting that the Reptilians had technology that allowed them to move across space-time? They could breach the dimensional walls of the pocket universe, but that's not time travel anymore than FTL or a teleporter like the zeta-beam is. (It even says the Mothmen use a zeta-beam in a shout-out to Adam Strange.) Word of God is that the Mothmen don't have time travel powers, and of course they can access their Mothworld. Mothworld has contact with the 27th century of "Admiral Thurston", and when Mothworld was "flung into normal space" (not space-time), Lori and the others expected them at that time. So time is the same for Mothworld and the regular universe, just like Earth-1 and Earth-2, Earth and Asgard, etc. That leads to Fridge Horror when you realize that when Stephanie said she wasted so much time resisting, it's compared to a span of centuries.

Of course Leonard and Co. didn't need seven centuries because they were travelling through time, the Moth egg having powers the regular ones didn't. They went in one case from the 27th century to prehistoric times in an instant, then wound up back there after some more jumps.

Actually, it is. Teleportation isn't the same moving through physical space.

To use an example: character A gets up and walks from their home and travels halfway across town, taking several hours to get there. Whereas character B simply snaps his fingers and teleports to the same destination (from the same starting point) and is already waiting for character A by the time A finally arrives.

Here's the kicker: B doesn't have to leave at the same time. If he chooses, he could leaves minutes or even an hour after A does and till beat him to their destination, because unlike A, B doesn't have to physically travel that distance. Nor does he need to run/fly/etc. All he has to do is choose a destination, snap his fingers, and he's there instantly; regardless of the physical distance separating them. For him, getting from point A to point B is the same as using a doorway, or a wormhole.

Then I'd have to ask the same question Tythion did.
