The following fan theories are about Caitlin.
For help on adding theories, see the help section.
|Caitlin has a power.||None||• Caitlin's reaction to Peter's demonstration powers is suspicious. (Lizards)|
+ Caitlin does not tell her brother that she's seen Peter do more than the electricity trick saying, "a girl's got to have her secrets". (Kindred)
- Caitlin has not exhibited any signs of having a power.
- Caitlin reached for a gun when threatened. (Lizards)
|Caitlin has the power of electric manipulation.||None||+ In Petrified Lightning, Caitlin shares a story of how a hero was able to call on the powers of his mermaid love by saying her name; likewise, when Peter does the same, and calls Caitlin's name, electricity flows freely, just like how the mermaid gave her power to her hero.|
+ Caitlin wasn't surprised, scared, or harmed when the electrical arcs danced to and all around her.
• Peter acquired electricity from Elle in Four Months Ago.
|Caitlin will die of the virus in the future.||None||+ She is trapped in the future so she could get infected.|
- She may not exist anymore because of being left in the future.
|Caitlin cannot be rescued.||The timeline's been changed and she wasn't rescued before it happened.||+ Caitlin's future is not Peter's future. She cannot be saved because Peter now can't go there by moving through time.|
- Hiro and Ando appeared in the explosion future even though a version of Hiro had already returned to the past of that timeline. (Walls, Part 1)
|Caitlin no longer exists.||None||+ With the Outbreak future no longer viable (due to Peter's destruction of strain 138), and the outbreak itself never happening, Caitlin was left in a time line that never happens, which would wipe her from existence.|
|Caitlin still exists and will live in a future where the Shanti virus was not released.||Hiro and Ando appeared in a timeline (Parasite) where Hiro had already reappeared in the past. (Walls, Part 1)||• If this is true, then once the timeline reaches 2008, Peter will be able to see her again.|
- That future is now in the main Heroes timeline. Caitlin may still be in the one where the virus was released and no longer exists in the main Heroes dimension.
|Caitlin will come back as a primary antagonist.||None||+ It would be a very interesting plot twist.|
+ She could want to get revenge on Peter for forgetting about her.
|Peter has forgotten his mission to save Caitlin.||None||+ He hasn't talked about her once since the beginning of season 3.|
|Caitlin still exists in the outbreak future, but in another dimension. The timeline she exists in is where Adam released the virus. Therefore, she is not in the Heroes dimension we follow.||The most adapted theory of time traveling in Heroes is the multiverse theory.||+ This could be a reason why we don't see Caitlin anymore.|
• If this is true, then once the timeline reaches June 2008, we won't see Caitlin, because she's not in the dimension of Heroes we follow.
|The writers will never bring up Caitlin again.||The Volume called "Exodus" where her fate was supposed to be revealed, has been canceled.||+ Many series do these things. Erase characters like they never had an impact on any of the other characters' lives.|
|Caitlin will get space-time manipulation.||She is trapped in the future and needs to get back.||+ Maybe her need to get back to the present will cause a manifestation of space-time manipulation.|
+ Abilities have been known to base themselves around people's situations.
|Caitlin will return in Volume 5 or a summer graphic novel.||A few season two characters have already been brought back in the Rebellion arc of the Graphic novels and might appear next season.||- Said characters aren't stuck in a future that can no longer happen.|
- Volume 5 takes place in 2009, and Caitlin is still nowhere to be seen.
|Caitlin will return thanks to Kelli Wheaton.||None||+ Kelli can bring people from other dimensions.|
- Caitlin is in another time not dimension.
|Caitlin has precognition.||None||+ She wasn't shocked after seeing Peter's powers.|
+ She might have foreseen Peter's coming.
|Caitlin will be able to return due to space time manipulation.||None||+ Logically if someone with spacetime manipulation took her far enough back, and then took her forward to the present she would end up in the main heroes universe rather than the different one she has been trapped in.|
