Time Traveler’s Wife Hints At A Major Story Change

HBO The Time Traveler's Wife Season 1 Episode 1 announces a major change in the film and the book on which it is based.

Today, the HBO adaptation with Rose Leslie and Theo James brings new attention to The Time Traveler's Wife.

Like the Outlander, The Time Traveler's Wife is a time travel romance, but The Time Traveler's Wife time travel mechanism is unique.

Henry has a medical condition that forces him to come out right away and at seemingly random times, mostly in his own life, causing personal problems and physical danger.

HBO's The Time Traveler's Wife seems to mean that Henry can have control over when and where he can travel, which is not the case with books and movies.

However, in The Time Traveler's Wife Season 1, Episode 1, young Henry immediately returns to the museum after wanting to go there.

Henry's daughter Alba (never seen in Time Traveler's Wife) has this ability in full force.

It's a departure from the film's strict rule that Henry can't control his travel time. This adds an interesting new dimension to the story.
