Cole catches fire flies in a jar but doesn’t realize that without adding holes to the lid that they’ll die. Grandpa Russ, the man in charge of The Loop, soon learns that his life will be coming to an end.
At the “Echo Sphere” Cole learns that by listening to the echo’s of his own voice he can learn how long he has left in life. He asks grandpa to yell into it but nothing comes back.
Is Cole able to figure out how to save his grandpa? To figure out how to “add holes” to the lid of grandpa’s life?
Cole assumes that he can use Grandpa’s work — The Eclipse — to save him but his mom, Loretta, tells him that that’s just not possible. (This is opposite of what Grandpa Russ told Cole that, “My job is to prove impossible things are possible.)
Grandpa dies and Cole returns to the “Echo Sphere” where we get to see his future life flash before us. Fire flies fill the inside of the sphere.

Why Can't Things Stay the Way They Were? Because of Time – S1 E8 'Tales From the Loop' Recap & Review
Cole, now in middle school, meets Ms. Sarah, who offers her ear to Jakob’s little brother and a book.
Cole tries to connect with his older brother who’s moved out of the house to live in town and work at MCEP. While visiting Jakob he soon learns that it’s actually Danny. So where’s the real Jakob? In a robot out in the woods.
Cole finds his real brother trapped inside a robot and hugs him. He tells Jacob-Robot that mom ‘will fix things’ and they set off to find her in the city. But Jacob-Robot is cut short, not because of a fight that he won against another robot, but because of an important object that he lost after the fight.
Cole finds a running stream that wasn’t so runny that last time he crossed it but which returns a soccer ball that he had just sent down it’s path a moment earlier.
Returning to town, Cole finds a much older Loretta who tells him that the stream is why she — and everything else — is much older.
A beautiful montage shows us how Loretta’s life has been a continuing series of losses — her son, her mother-in-law, her husband. Cole has returned to a time where “Danny” is a father.
Cole finds his grandma’s old camera and takes a picture of a crying Loretta. CLICK.
A grown-up Cole is in front of his old house with his wife and son. Time has passed. CLICK.
