Viewers really struggled to figure out what Adam really wanted when he helped Jonas Kahnwald (played by Louis Hofmann) after he got stuck in the past.
There was scepticism surrounding his identity when he claimed to be the older version of Jonas, not least because he didn’t look like him.
Some suspected Adam might really be Bartosz Tiedemann (Paul Lux) and was simply using Jonas as a pawn.
This theory turned out to be half right, Adam was using Jonas like a chess piece but not in the way he thought.

However, Adam was indeed Jonas from the future – the man he would become in his desperate attempts to break the cycle.
Adam lied to Jonas and sent him back to 2019 to make sure events occurred just as they were supposed to.
He later turned up and murdered Martha Nielsen (Lisa Vicari), believing he was breaking the cycle with the deaths of her and the baby she was carrying.
Little did Adam know his actions were simply perpetuating the cycle and he didn’t have any control or influence over events.
