Netflix time travel extravaganza Dark drew the curtains on its epic saga back in June 2020 with the release of the final series. The show answered most of its big burning questions and brought the story to an end. Nonetheless, there are still some details which may be niggling viewers.

Why doesn’t Noah have scars like Adam?

WARNING: This article contains spoilers from all seasons of Dark

Season two of Dark introduced the intriguing figure of Adam (played by Dietrich Hollinderbäumer), whom Jonas Kahnwald (Louis Hofmann) encountered in the past.

Adam revealed to the teen he was the future version of Jonas but there seemed to be ambiguity over whether he was telling the truth, particularly after he murdered Martha Nielsen (Lisa Vicari).

Viewers were left perplexed as Adam looked unrecognisable from Jonas apart from one scar.

Adam claimed due to travelling through time so much over the years he was left badly scarred and no longer resembled his other selves.

In season three, viewers realised Adam was indeed telling the truth and Jonas would become him.

Additionally, fans met Eva (Barbara Nüsse), who had her own scars and was revealed to be the older version of Martha in the second world.

Adam and Eva were both sides of the same coin and had travelled many times through time.

But it does seem strange they were the only characters to sustain these scars after so much time travel.

Also, it begs the question of why other characters didn’t seem to have physical marks from their own journeys through different eras.

One character who should probably have had scars was Noah (Mark Waschke), the unnerving priest who was killing children in season one.

Noah appeared in two forms in Dark, one as his older self the priest and his younger version Hanno (Max Schimmelpfennig).

The priest was seen constantly turning up in different times throughout the show.

At some points he encountered Jonas near the Winden caves in 2019 and another time he was with Mikkel Nielsen (Daan Lennard Liebrenz) in the 80s.

There was even a scene between Noah and Hanno at the turn of the century in which his younger self tried to understand the motives of Sic Mundus.

Later, Hanno showed up in the post-apocalyptic world of Winden and formed a bond with Elisabeth Doppler (Carlotta von Falkenhayn).

So, there appeared to be just as much time travel for Noah and Hanno as they was for Adam and Jonas.

Therefore, it seems highly strange Noah didn’t have any real visible scars unlike Adam and Eva.

This appears to be something of a plot hole but perhaps one explanation may be Noah didn’t travel as much as Adam and Eva.

Noah’s life was cut short in season two after he attempted to shoot Adam dead but failed due to determinism preventing him from doing so.

Instead, Noah’s own sister Agnes Nielsen (Antje Traue) murdered Noah as she showed her allegiance to Sic Mundus and Adam.

Perhaps if Noah had lived, he too may have had developed scars and injuries from travelling through time more.
