Harry finally gets it. Ashamed of himself, he apologizes for his past mistakes and makes peace with the fact that he'll be spending the rest of his days in the time warp - without Julia. But what does she think of that?
Harry just can't understand what's wrong with Julia. Desperate for a solution, he seeks the advice of her friend, Barbara. While telling her about his trip with Julia to the North Sea, the problem suddenly dawns on him.
Harry has to rethink his approach if he wants to persuade Julia to listen to him. He buys her a beautiful bouquet of flowers and pays her a visit. This new strategy seems to do the trick - but only for a brief moment.
Harry eavesdrops on a conversation between Julia and her friend, Barbara. Choking back her tears, Julia describes how nice he was when they first met. Even Harry is shocked to hear how much he has changed since then.
The oracle's words have given Harry pause for thought. He thinks about the mistakes he's made and goes to Hamburg full of good intentions. There he hopes to see Julia and make up with her, but she'll have none of it.
Anna was finally able to leave the time warp. Harry, on the other hand, still has to find his own way out. He visits the oracle again. This time he really makes an earnest effort - unfortunately once again to no avail.
After hearing Jakob's story, Anna and Harry now understand how the oracle works. To get out of the time warp, you have to learn from your mistakes and correct them. Anna visits the oracle to discover her personal path.
