Hannah Kahnwald (née Krüger) is the widow of Michael and mother of Jonas. She is a clever woman, driven by pain and vengeance and doesn't shy away from conspiracies. She's been dealt a tough hand: Her husband commits suicide and their son Jonas gets sent to a psychiatric inpatient facility shortly after.

From a young age, she had an obsession with Ulrich Nielsen and in 2019 has an affair with him. Hannah works as a physiotherapist , counting Aleksander Tiedemann, director of the Winden Nuclear Power Plant, among her clients.

History Edit

Background Edit

Hannah was born on 1972 in Winden to Sebastian Krüger. Her mother is not mentioned. She attended high school and befriended the rebellious Ulrich Nielsen, and a jock named Katharina Albers. She had a massive crush on the former, which is why she spends her time close to Ulrich. Her obsession was driving her to become selfish.

1986 Edit

November 5 Edit

In the school hallway, she is conversing with Katharina and another girl. Katharina hands the other girl a music tape, expressing that it's about a guy kidnapping and murdering a girl for wearing lipstick. Hannah states that, according to her father, lipstick is for prostitutes and that she prefers different music. Katharina calls her a square. Suddenly, a young boy (a 2019 time traveller named Mikkel Nielsen) approaches the group, asking for help to find his mother (who happens to be Katharina). Katharina talks crudely towards him, and eventually shoves him aside for his odd behaviour and constant confusion.

A hopeful Hannah.

At night, she cycles to a bus stop to meet with Ulrich. They sat together and took a gander at the flickering lights in the streets. She jokes around that the current situation was the apocalypse, and Ulrich refers to it as a disappointment. Hannah concurs with him, stating that she expected it to be more loud and glaring. She asks him if the world was going to end and renew, what would he wish for. Ulrich replies "a world without Winden". Hannah was brighten by his answer. After the lights stopped flickering, she says that Winden might not give up that easily, but Ulrich believes that next time it will.

November 7 Edit

In the morning, she is pasting a photo of Ulrich onto her scrapbook. She later meets him at the bicycle pathway in the forest. At school, he brings exposition about a movie he saw, and later ditched her to hangout with a group of girls. She then notices Ulrich holding hands with Katharina, much to her dismay.

Hannah's shocking discovery.

After school, Hannah and her father arrive at the hospital in his dry cleaning delivery van. He tells her he'll be busy for half an hour, and asks her if she was alright. Hannah lies by saying she's fine. She starts feeling insecure about her appearance, and notices Mikkel sitting on a bench. Hannah walks over and asks him if he thinks she is pretty. He hesitates to answer. She tells him that she likes to pretend she can do magic, that if she wants something really badly, it happens, like moving a bottle cap on the ground. Mikkel asks if she has heard of Harry Houdini, then picks up the bottle cap, saying there is no magic, only illusion. He closes his hand around it, taps his fists, then reveals it in his other hand. She asks where he learned to do the trick, and he replies that he is from the future, which amuses her. He tells her his name and she tells him hers.

They later arrived at the high school, where she heard laughing through an open window. She peers through it and discovered Ulrich and Katharina having sex in a storage room. She was agitated by that sight.

Later her father picks her up. Hannah asks her father what she should do if she has seen something that was wrong. Hannah tells him she witnessed Ulrich molesting Katharina. He takes her to the police and she tells Egon Tiedemann that Ulrich brutally raped her. Egon tells her she did right and is very brave to tell him. This false testimony led to Ulrich's arrest, all part of Hannah's plan to legally separate him and Katharina.

November 8 Edit

While she and Sebastian were driving home through a rainy night, they took sight of Jonas Kahnwald (another 2019 time traveller) at the bus stop. They offer to give him a ride, since the rain is possibly acid due to Chernobyl. He awkwardly declines and walks away.

November 9 Edit

She visits Mikkel at the hospital, growing their friendship. Unbeknownst to either of them, Jonas was watching from afar.

November 11 Edit

She approaches a frustrated Katharina at the school yard, asking what was happening with Ulrich, but she responds that he's going to be released today. Hannah's plan had failed. She asks about her and Ulrich, if Katharina's mother would be afraid or anything. Katharina responds that she doesn't care, since love is stronger than hate. She also proclaims that she's going to clobber up whoever gave Egon that false testimony, so Hannah suggests that it was Regina Tiedemann.

Finding Boris.

While cycling, she notices a fugitive named Boris Niewald, hiding his essentials in a plastic bag and burying them. She secretly retrieves the bag, finding two passports and a gun. Hannah keeps one of the passports and the gun for a possible future purpose.

1987 Edit

June 22 Edit

While walking through the school yard, she takes sight of Mikkel (now known as "Michael Kahnwald"), until Katharina grunts at her to keep walking.

Growing Up Edit

She continued her life like normal, which her crush unrequited, and became a physiotherapist . She eventually married Michael, and in 2002 or 2003, they conceived Jonas Kahnwald. They moved into the Kahnwald family home. One of her notable clients was Alexander Tiedemann (Boris Niewald), who became the director of the Winden Nuclear Power Plant. They also remain close to Michael's adoptive mother, Ines Kahnwald.

She has been aware of Michael strange exploits and anxiety, and grew concern over him. He hardly left the house and wore old clothes. Despite her new family, her obsession with Ulrich remained intact. Fortunately, Hannah still cared for her son.

2019 Edit

June 20 Edit

She goes downstairs for breakfast, and reminds Jonas about the Nielsens' anniversary party at night. She asks Michael if he really doesn't want to go, but he ignores her question. After Jonas leaves for the lake, she sees Michael having an anxiety attack. Hannah caressed him from behind and whispers her worries to him, but he dismisses them and claims he needed to finish his painting.

Ulrich and Katharina visit her, wanting to collect glasses for the party. They briefly converse on how their marriage has developed, until Mikkel Nielsen steps out of the car, asking to go pee. When Katharina asks Hannah if he could enter the house, the latter was staring at him with déjà vu. She then awkwardly allows him to enter. Katharina states that Mikkel has been "eating like an Ogre", and Ulrich jokes that he took his appetite after his mother. Hannah and Ulrich smirk at each other.

At night, she and Jonas attend the party. She is greeted by Katharina at the entrance area. Hannah briefly chats with Charlotte Doppler, who claims that her husband Peter was sick. Katharina hands her a glass of champagne. She grows jealous at the sight of Ulrich and Katharina dansing together, and the former notices her expression.

The beginning of an affair.

She sits outside in the heavy wind on a swing seat for a smoke. Ulrich goes outside to sit next to her. After a silence, they reflect a conversation from 33 years ago. He jokes around that the current situation was the apocalypse, and Hannah refers to it as a disappointment. Ulrich concurs with her, stating that he expected it to be more loud and glaring. He asks her if the world was going to end and renew, what would she wish for. Hannah replies "a world without Winden". Ulrich was brighten by his answer. After the rain begun to drop, they ran together towards a sheltered zone. Later, the two of them kiss passionately, beginning an affair that she has always dreamed of.

During the five months Edit

The whole family, mainly Jonas, was traumatised by Michael's suicide on June 21. Ines has been very distant from the family, which aggravates Hannah. They have also been troubling with paying their electricity bill. Despite the tragedy, she continued her affair with Ulrich.

November 4 Edit

In the morning, she is having sex with Ulrich until Jonas calls her down, stating that the electricity was cut out again. As they get dressed, Ulrich asks if she will be coming to the meeting tonight, but she is not sure as his wife Katharina will be there. Hannah says she loves him. He does not reciprocate, however, and leaves through the window. She briefly stares at a family photo, with Ines torn out.

When arriving at the Power Plant, she receives a call from Ulrich. He asks her if she would be going to the meeting, but she claims that she's nervous since people would be "gawking" at her. Ulrich says that he booked a hotel room, asking if she wanted to come by. He also jokes around that he has other "candidates".

Inside, she gives Aleksander a massage. She notices his scar, noting that they are sensitive to rain, and quotes "they can see into the future". He gets up from his massage bed, reminding that the Nuclear Plant would be closed in about a year. Aleksander says that he never thought it would end like this, but there's a time for everything. Hannah repeats his last statement with gloom, which prompts him to say sorry about Michael.

At night, she arrives at the school and is greeted by Katharina. Hannah acts cheerful towards her, but in reality, she is nervous. In the middle of the meeting, she receives a message from Ulrich. She meets him in an alleyway, proceeding to kiss passionately for the next few minutes. Suddenly, they receive phone calls and drive to their children, where the police have arrived at the scene. Mikkel Nielsen has disappeared. All go to their parents except Jonas, who does not move. Hannah goes to him and hugs him but he barely responds.

November 5 Edit

Hannah attempts to call Ulrich multiple times, but he kept declining. In the evening, she decides to meet him at station. They enter a storage area, and she says sorry for his current circumstances. She attempts to kiss him, but he was in no frame of mind to continue the affair, so he leaves her be.

1x0230HannahJonas

Hannah and Jonas on the counter.

At night, Jonas and Hannah were sitting on the kitchen counters, lit with candles. He asks her if she thinks Mikkel would be found, and she responds with hope. Jonas asks her if she thinks Michael has been keeping secrets from them, but she replies with "why do you think that?". When asked if she misses him, Hannah admits that she thinks she misses a notion of him, since he never revealed his true self. She concludes by saying how nobody could know what a person is really like. At the moment he asks if she loved Michael, the lights loomed around the house, so she ignores the question.

November 6 Edit

She was sitting in the dinning room smoking. She sees Jonas descend the stairs, professing that he needed to go to school. Hannah tells him that he doesn't need to go to school if he doesn't want to at the current situation, but he shrugs her concerns off. She then asks if they could spend some nice time together, but he declines again.

November 7 Edit

Once again, Hannah attempts to call Ulrich multiple times, but he kept declining. In the rain, she decides to go to the Nielsen family home, bringing food in a dish container. When Martha Nielsen answers the door, Hannah claims that she brought food for Katharina, Just then, Katharina enters the scene, and Hannah says that she did this out of kindness. She set foot into the house, secretly nervous.

Hannah asks the distressed Katharina about the likeliness of Magnus, Martha and Ulrich, but replies that she doesn't know. Suddenly, a bruised Ulrich enters the living room with shock at the sight of Hannah. Katharina tells him that she came by to bring some food. Ulrich says that he needs to head towards the station, and Hannah asks him if she could ride with him, since she came by bike. Katharina reluctantly agrees. Ulrich goes to kiss Katharina's forehead. As the two were about to leave, Katharina rises up to hug her, thanking Hannah for her concerns, while secretly staring deeply at Ulrich.

When arriving back home, they remain in the car. Ulrich strictly instructs her not to call him again, and declares that he wants to end the affair. Agitated, she responds that nobody can simply shut down an affair. Hannah scolds him to look at her eyes, and tell her that this relationship meant nothing. She falsely advices him that she'll always be there for him in any situation. Ulrich leaned closer, appearing as if he was going to kiss her, but instead opened the door for her. He repeats his strict instructions and shouts at her to leave.

At night, she was cleaning her sheets, contemplating the time when she had Ulrich arrested in 1986. It's at that moment when she decides to get revenge.

November 8 Edit

1x06 0007 HannahJonas

"What was he like?"

In the dinning room, Jonas asks her how she met Michael. She explains that when she was 14, she met him in the hospital while she was in a bad mood. Jonas then questions what was he like before he got "sick", so Hannah replies that he was different, and that it was impossible to tell if he meant something serious or not. When Jonas wanted to ask something else, he changes his mind.

She then receives an anonymous call, when she answered, there was no voice. Once she said "Ulrich?", the caller (Katharina) hung up.

At night, someone was banging aggressively on the door. When she answers it, Ulrich stormed inside. She was confused by his question "What do you want from me?", until he grabbed her by the throat and pinned her to the wall. He states the realisation that she was the witness in the false rape case in 1986, calling her a sick person. He demands to know what she wants, and she replies "You". Ulrich releases her, and the two of them were enraged. He tells her she is poison and it is no wonder her husband killed himself, a statement that received him a slap from her. He growls at her that he thought he knew her, but he was deceived. He leaves the house and slammed the door.

November 9 Edit

Late at night, she was woken up by Jonas (who recently came back from 1986). She asks him where he was, but he remains silent and stationary. When asked if she believed in fate, she retorts "Maybe it's my fate that men leave me". He remorsefully tells her that he thinks Dad loved her very much and they tearfully embrace.

November 11 Edit

She recalled keeping the essentials of Boris Niewald all the way from 33 years ago. She opens a box hidden in the cabinets, and inside, were his old passport and gun. Hannah has discovered an advantage she can take of in order to get revenge on Ulrich.

Suddenly, Katharina bangs on the front door. She lets the raging woman in, who assumes that Ulrich was inside. She shoves Hannah, calling her a liar. She demands to know how long their affair has been going on, where they had sex, why would it continue due to current conditions, and if she enjoys destroying other people's lives. Hannah tells her it's now over. She lies that she was the one who ended it, and that he intended to leave Katharina and start dating her. Katharina collapses into tears, much to Hannah's inner satisfaction.

1x09 0043 HannahMassage

Hannah blackmails Aleksander.

While massaging Aleksander at the Nuclear Plant, she places the plastic bag underneath his face. She says how she didn't know why she kept it, but "there's a time for everything". Hannah begins blackmailing him. When asked of her intentions, she talks about how everyone cannot pay their bills. Initially assuming she wanted money, Hannah corrects him that she wants him to ruin Ulrich's life using his authority. Aleksander asks for advice, but she mercilessly dismisses his question. She taunts him one last time by saying that his former identity suits him better.

November 12 Edit

She sits in her dinning room until a bruised Jonas descended the stairs. He explains that he got into a recent fight, but it doesn't matter who he fought. He hugs her, assuring her that "everything will be fine". He exited the house, leaving Hannah puzzled.

At night, she notices the lights flickering again. She takes the gun and aims across the table, as if she was pointing it at someone.

During the seven months Edit

Hannah has been grieving over the disappearances of both Jonas and Ulrich. She hardly left the house and has been marking the days on her calendar. She has displayed newspapers centring around the mysterious disappearances that have occurred lately. Since Ulrich was missing, she finds no reason to ruin him, and instead blackmailed Aleksander to pay her money.

2020 Edit

June 21 Edit

She listens to the radio, stating the that a new federal police task force has arrived to assist in the investigation of the 6 missing people. She crosses June 21 off on the calendar: The first anniversary of her husband's death.

Hannah2x01

Meeting Adult Jonas.

Hannah pulls out the box with Aleksander's gun and passport. She takes the gun and aims it across the table, before re-adjusting it towards her chin, planning to kill herself. Just then she hears the door opening with a key. A hooded stranger enters. She asks him how he has a key, and responds that it's his key. He tries to prove his identity by showing her the scar he has from falling off the bike she and his father gave him for his eighth birthday. Scared, she exhales "Get out". He then further reminds her when his father spilled oil onto the kitchen floor, when he disappeared from her life half a year ago, and when they met each other in a stormy night in 1986. After a brief silence, the stranger whispers "Mom, it's me". She weeps at the realisation that she's meeting an adult version of Jonas. They tearfully embrace each other.

Adult Jonas explains that he came from the future. He says that he could be considered as someone who exists infinitely, between his birth and death, and is always the same Jonas, yet not entirely. Heartstruck, she demands to know where her present Jonas is, and he answers that he's stuck in the future, because he had attempted to destroy the time portal, but only succeeded in closing it. When she asks why he's here, he tells her he has come to put an end to everything.

While Adult Jonas was sleeping, she examined the scars on his back, struck by this turn of events.

June 22 Edit

Hannah looks through old family photos- happier times. Adult Jonas descends the stairs, and places the time traveling apparatus on the table, explaining it's functions. He tells her that "he did it all wrong" and that he's meant to keep something a secret, but it's about time Hannah knows. She asks for what he means, and responds "Dad's secret".

He guided her through the Winden Caves using his orb light. After taking a glance around the hollow, she asks why they were here. Adult Jonas explains that the it's safer to travel from the caves. She watches as he activates the apparatus using Ulrich's smartphone, and he held her hand. A spherical wormhole started protruding out of the machine, until it expanded and swallowed them whole.

1987 (time travel) Edit

June 22 Edit

It was already night time when they arrived in the past. Adult Jonas brings Hannah to the garden of the Kahnwald family home. She was stunned at the sight of Mikkel Nielsen inside the house, and calculated that he is the true identity of her late husband. Adult Jonas hugs her as she cries at this revelation. They depressingly returned back to their present later.

2020 Edit

June 24 Edit

She calls Charlotte Doppler to come over to the house, deciding that she should be aware of the time travel situation. She goes downstairs to see Adult Jonas holding the gun and passport from the box. He demands to know it's purposes, but she claims that it's complicated. He asks her why she is keeping it, but she shrugs of his concerns and proceeded to make breakfast.

CharlotteMeetsStranger

Charlotte meets The Stranger.

Later, she explains that it's "insurance", as in someone needs them hidden. Adult Jonas calculates that she's blackmailing someone, and asks "who are you". She replies "who am I? who are you?". Charlotte then arrives. Although Adult Jonas tells her not to answer, she explains that someone else needs to know. Charlotte enters and notices Adult Jonas, giving him an inquisitive expression. Hannah explains that he is Jonas, but he also knows where her present Jonas and Ulrich are. Charlotte says that he's the stranger that came to Waldhotel Winden. She shows him an ancient photo of people and points to a particular person, asking his identity. He confirms the man to be Noah, a member of Sic Mundus (also known as The Travelers). Charlotte quotes "Sic Mundus Creatus Est". Hannah was at the background of this conversation confused. Charlotte informs them that she wants to show them something.

In the Doppler bunker, she surveys the wall that was filled with old newspaper clippings, posters, notes, etc. They were exhibiting information related to time travel, including the whereabouts of Mikkel and Ulrich. Peter Doppler says that Claudia Tiedemann told him and Tronte Nielsen various predictions that came to light. That's when he understood the time travel phenomenon. he further explains that he has the Triquetra notebook, stating records of time travel. Hannah suggests that Katharina should know this as well.

When Charlotte sends Katharina to the bunker, the latter was disgusted to see Hannah. Charlotte elucidates the situation where Mikkel and Ulrich traveled through time. Katharina was in disbelief, even yelling at Hannah not to contribute to this information. When Adult Jonas steps up, Katharina openly assumes that he was her new "boy toy". He reveals his identity, as well as the fact that he's her grandson. She scoffs and laughs at him.

After an explanation, Katharina refuses to believe them. She mocks Adult Jonas before attempting to leave. Hannah stands up and tells her that she saw Mikkel when she time traveled. The two stare at each other menacingly, before Katharina declares that they are all insane.

The four of them wait in the bunker. Adult Jonas tells them that everything will happen the way it always has, but Adam (the leader of Sic Mundus) told him that there's a loophole. He further states that Adam will begin the last cycle in 3 days, but he has to stop him. He goes over to the sketch of Old Claudia, saying that she tried, but in the end "she became exactly what she was trying to fight". He then leaves the bunker.

At night, the three of them exit the bunker.

June 25 Edit

2x05 0018 HannahHostsKatharina

Hannah confronted by Katharina.

Katharina arrives at the house, looking for Adult Jonas. Hannah informs her he has disappeared. Katharina asks how she can go back in time to see Mikkel, as Hannah told her she did. Hannah says that Adult Jonas has a "time machine," but has taken it with him. Katharina notices pictures of Michael and remarks how he was always there, right in front of her. She criticises Hannah for sleeping with both her husband and her son and always wanting everything that was hers, like a parasite. She asks if Ulrich ever told her he loved her, as he would always choose her.

They are interrupted by a knock on the door. It is Investigator Clausen, who has come after Hannah, who was not home for their appointment yesterday. He finds it hard to believe a woman whose son is missing would miss that. He is surprised to see Katharina there. He shows her the sketch of Adult Jonas and asks if she has ever seen him. She denies and leaves. He then asks Hannah, who also denies recognising him as well.

Clausen tells Hannah that he doesn't believe anyone in town is telling the truth; everyone is hiding something. He just isn't sure whether they are hiding the same thing or all have their own secrets. He asks if Aleksander Tiedemann is still paying her, even though she no longer is his physiotherapist. After a moment of thought, she claims that Aleksander helps out with money because her son has disappeared. Clausen looks at an old picture of Ulrich, Katharina and Hannah as teenagers and says it is remarkable that Katharina appears so understanding of her affair.

At night, she stares at the old photo from the 80s, folding Katharina out of it. Adult Jonas finally returns, and she asks him where he was, but he stared at her apathetically. He then glances at the old photos of Michael, and questions her whether she ever loved him. He tells her he knows of her affair with Ulrich. He asks who she would choose: Ulrich or Michael. He tells her he sincerely thought she was the only person he could trust. She admits that she messed up everything, and Jonas says coldly that perhaps she has always done that; she needs no one, just herself.

June 26 Edit

While Adult Jonas was sleeping, Hannah takes his apparatus, which was in a suitcase. She also hallucinates Ulrich standing at the doorway. She decides to use the time machine to travel to 1954. She likely traveled to 1987 first, and then went back another 33 years.

1954 (time travel) Edit

June 26 Edit

She goes to the police station, informing that she knows the "man in the asylum" (Ulrich). They set her for an immediate appointment with Officer Egon Tiedemann. Later, Egon arrives in his office, asking if he could help Hannah. She claims that she's looking for her husband, who might happen to be the "murderer". She asks if she could see him, but Egon explains that it's not that easy, and he doesn't talk. Hannah believes that he could talk to her. She introduces herself as "Katharina Nielsen".

On the way to the Asylum, Egon explains that he never confessed, and constantly insisted that he wanted to save the children. He asks her if they had children, but she denies, much to Egon's confusion, since Ulrich was always saying that he wanted to look for his son. He also asks if she's ever heard of "The White Devil", and she denies that as well. He tells her that if Ulrich does talk to her, try and persuade him to talk to the police.

HannahAbandonsUlrich

Hannah abandons Ulrich.

Finally arriving, they step in front of the bared gate indoors. She asks Egon that she want a moment alone with Ulrich. She witnesses a mentally disturbed Ulrich in a straitjacket being led towards her. He refuses to look at her until she caresses his face through the bars. They tearfully stare at each other. He asks about Mikkel, Katharina, Martha and Magnus. Hannah, sensing that he cares more about Katharina and his family, asks him who he would choose between her or Katharina or if he ever loved her. He tells her he loves her and will leave Katharina if she can get him out of there. But his words sound hollow and desperate, just in the hope she will get him out. She coldly tells Ulrich that throughout their affair, he never said "I love you", and that he doesn't need her. She turns around and walks away, as Ulrich is dragged back, yelling and crying out is desperation, calling her a liar. Hannah informs the perplexed Egon that there must have been a mix-up.

At the station, Egon hands her a cigarette, and apologizes for not reacting sooner. Judging by her false last name, he asks if she knew Agnes Nielsen, but she denies. Noticing her suitcase, he asks if she was leaving, but she informs him that she lost everything from her home (being aware of the apocalypse), and is looking for a fresh start. They light up each other's cigarettes and smirk, implying that they are going to start a relationship.

September 24 Edit

After Hannah has sex with Egon, she does her hair and pauses when Egon tells her he loves her. She smiles at him, and Egon gives her a necklace, which he puts on her. Hannah looks down at it and tells her she likes it before telling him she does not feel good. When she asks Egon if he will be returning, he mentions he does not know, as it might be best for him to stay at home that night. Hannah, using Katharina's name, looks down disappointed, but Egon tells her he is glad she stayed in Winden, and tells her she is beautiful before he leaves.

Hannah is at the doctor's and tells him that she likes Winden because it is less complicated than where she comes from. The doctor mentions that could change because she is pregnant, and tells her that at her age, pregnancies come with risks, so she could not do any strenuous activities. Hannah is worried, and mentions that cannot be possible, but the doctor is certain.

At the police station, Hannah visits Egon, who asks why she is there. Hannah does not answer any of Egon's questions and simply tells him she is pregnant. Egon wonders why that is, as she had been taking precautions. Hannah is astounded when he asks if it is his, wondering if he thinks all she does is sleep around with everyone. She realizes Egon is the same as Ulrich and has an outburst, so Egon offers her a ride home.

Egon asks Hannah what they are going to do, but Hannah mentions she will not keep it. She wonders why life is unjust, and tells him she had spent time holding on to things she did not need. She tells Egon she does not need him or other men, and asks him to leave. He writes down a phone number for Mrs. Obendorf and mentions she does abortions properly, and leaves her money before ultimately apologizing and leaving.

Hannah rings at the Obendorf's, and is greeted by a child, who lets her in. She is told to wait, so she sits down. While she is seated the child mentions her mother says the babies that are gotten rid of will go to hell, but Hannah mentions she does not believe in hell because hell is what they make for themselves there. The child introduces herself as Helene Albers, and stretches her hand. Hannah shakes it, realizing she is Katharina's mother, also introducing herself as Katharina. The young girl comments that her name is beautiful, which makes Hannah smile. Helene notices she is wearing a St. Christopher necklace, and comments that it is a nice thought because it represents someone watching them on their journey and watching over them. The girl's mother opens the door and coldly tells her to go inside, so the girl gets up and walks inside before closing the door. Hannah removes her St. Christopher necklace, and leaves it on the girl's chair before leaving.

1911 Edit

Bartosz is working on his car when Hannah arrives with her and Egon's daughter, revealed to be a young Silja (the scar across her face was foreshadowed previously when the doctor told Hannah there may be difficulties in the birthing process due to her age). Due to his constant experiments with the dark matter portal over the 23 years he has been stuck in the past, Stranger/Jonas now closely resembles Adam. Hannah tells Stranger/Jonas that Eva gave her his location. Guilty for having abandoned Jonas and for all the decisions she's made, Hannah apologizes to Jonas, but Adam doesn't respond in kind. Adam, now obsessed with finding the origin and realising that Silja has to be taken to the future where she will help his younger self discover the God Particle, quietly enters the bedroom where Hannah and Silja sleep. Hannah awakens to see Adam by Silja and asks him what he's doing. Adam explains to her that Silja is in the wrong place, referring to the timeline she's in, and tells her she, too, is in the wrong place as well before getting smothered by Adam, killing her, and transports Silja to the future.

2019 (Eva's World) Edit

November 4 Edit

Ulrich walks into Hannah's room and awakes her. Hannah tells him she had trouble sleeping. Ulrich tells her he took a while to make it home because the baker's was full and joked the apocalypse was nearing them. Hannah asks him to stay, but he has to leave. He tells her they would see each other that evening, and Hannah stands up, revealing she was pregnant. She tells him she loves him, and Ulrich tells her she is beautiful.

Hannah walks into the high school, and walks right into Katharina, who tries to ignore her. Hannah says she wanted to see her, and tells her she knows that she and the kids were a part of him and that she would back off. Katharina sarcastically thanks her, and tells her that Ulrich wanted to bring something over, when Hannah asks if Ulrich had been to her house earlier that morning.

Jonas walks out and sees Hannah in the hallway, who doesn't pay much attention to him until he calls her "mom." Hannah is confused, but Jonas is unable to say anything else, so she leaves. Hannah gets home, and looks at Ulrich's jacket in which she had found a hair earlier.

November 5 Edit

At the police station, Hannah brings sweets and asks Charlotte and Torben if Ulrich was there, as she had been wanting to contact him all morning. Charlotte is confused and told Hannah that she thought Ulrich had gone home. Hannah tells Charlotte she looks very different and asks if she got a haircut, but Charlotte says that she had not. Hannah grows suspicious of Charlotte and hugs her, while smelling her hair before leaving visibly shaken.

Hannah visits Aleksander and says sorry about what happened to Regina. She asks Aleksander how he and Bartosz are doing and tells him she wants to offer him a deal, telling him she has something that was his and wanted to return it. She brings out a bag, and asks him if he remembers it, Seeing Aleksander's worried face, Hannah tells him that the contents of the bag were safe. Aleksander asks if what she wants is money, but she refuses because she wants Charlotte "destroyed" and to lose everything.

November 8 Edit

Hannah opens the door for and receives Charlotte, who is looking for Ulrich. Hannah mentions Ulrich is in the shower, but Charlotte asks if she can wait for him because what she wants to tell him is urgent. Hannah nods, and asks her how she is; when Charlotte says she is alright, Hannah tells her that Ulrich is hers, which would not change. Ulrich gets downstairs, and wonders what Charlotte is doing there. Charlotte mentions she wanted to show him the file she had before they leave. Hannah tells them they should all hang out together while she still can. She goes upstairs to take a shower. As the apocalypse begins, Hannah begins to bleed, just as the elderly Egon arrives to ensure the existence of Silja.

Origin World Edit

In a house party at the Doppler's home, Regina is celebrating with her friends. Peter is with Bernadette Wöller and Hannah is with Torben Wöller, joined also by Katharina. Bernadette looks at Torben's eye and comments it is looking a lot better. They ask him to tell them the story behind how his accident had happened, and as he began to tell it, a loud thunder bolt startled the group, also turning off the lights. Bernadette jokingly asks if it is the apocalypse, but Hannah is staring at a yellow rain jacket akin to Jonas'. Katharina asks her if she is okay, and Hannah mentions she had a deja-vu. She mentions it might sound absurd, but she had dreamt about that very moment the night before, except the world had ended, leaving everything dark forever. However, she mentions that it had felt good suddenly being free of everything in the unending darkness. Bernadette jokes that Hannah should get checked, and Hannah blames it on hormones. Regina asks them if they had one wish due to the world ending what they would wish for. Katharina wishes for a world without Winden, and they all say cheers. As they do, the lights turn back on, and Peter mentions maybe Winden does not want to leave. Torben says it could be a good thing, while holding Hannah's stomach, which revealed she was pregnant. The couple kiss, and when they ask what they think the name could be, Hannah says she does not know, but comments how she thinks Jonas would be a good name.

Personality Edit

On the surface, Hannah seemed as if she was a soft-hearted person. She acted as if she is concerned about the wellbeing of others, and is trying her best to make up for their happiness. However, she is secretly a cunning, selfish and ruthless individual.

From youth, Hannah was obsessed with Ulrich, and vowed to have him to herself. She would take extreme measures to win, giving no remorse over those who are in pain. Such as when she had Ulrich arrested, knowing that he mourns for his brother. Her antics lasted throughout her life, willing to have Ulrich to herself. She is capable of manipulating others, and hiding her inner hatred towards people like Katharina.

She also appears to view men as selfish, egocentric, and horny cowards who only like being in charge, as seen when she becomes offended by Egon.

Despite her selfishness, she does happen to care for Jonas, since he was her only family left. Even Jonas' disappearance was a catalyst to her attempted suicide. She also appears to show regret for her actions when she later attempts to abort Egon's child, she begins to show remorse after a chance meeting with a child Helene in an abortion clinic and leaves without aborting the child. When Hannah meets Jonas again in 1911, she repents to Jonas, wishing to make amends for her mistakes.
