The timeline for this show is particularly confusing for three reasons: First, the show takes place in several different time zones. Secondly, the way the episodes are structured, one character's story could take place over the course of a few hours on one day, and in the same episode, another character's journey could take place over two or more days. Thirdly, there is time-travel involved, and that always gets messy.



  • The Odessa paper in "Don't Look Back" gives the date as October 1, and reports on the train fire from "Genesis". James Walker is found dead this same day.
  • In "Fallout", Mohinder says that James Walker was killed 9 days ago, making that Day 11, thus the episdoes in-between happen between October 1
  • "Collision", "Hiros", "Better Halves", and "Nothing to Hide" happen on consecutive days.
  • The explosion of New York happens five weeks after the events in "Genesis".
