Ouroboros - S7-E3

Question: If in Kochanski's universe, Kochanski was the one put in stasis, why did Holly make a hologram of Lister? Wouldn't Holly have made a hologram of someone who drove her crazy like Lister's Holly did with Rimmer? In Kochanski's universe, would Kochanski's future self not tell her that she is going to hook up with Lister, as it happened in Lister's universe? Does this mean Kochanski in Lister's universe secretly had feelings for him all along?

Chosen answer: In Lister's universe, Holly told Lister that he brought Rimmer back because he spent the most time with him, sharing fourteen million words with each other and that he was the best choice to keep Lister sane. It was nothing to do with who drove Lister crazy the most. In Kochanski's universe, Holly would have brought Lister back as a hologram for more or less the same or similar reason. Holly would likely have seen Lister as the one in Kochanski's universe to keep her the most sane. As for the future self, it is unknown whether or not Kochanski would have met her future self in her universe. All that's known is Kochanski survived the ship disaster and Lister was brought back as a hologram and anything could have happened in that time. Whether or not Kochanski had feelings for Lister in his universe will remain unknown. It is probable that she did not, though it is shown in Stasis Leak that she got married to a version of Lister five years onwards and would definitely had feelings for that version of Lister.

Other mistake: When Cat picks up the can of Leopard lager which is invisible to Lister, he shakes it, pops the cap and sprays Lister with foam. The foam is visible but the can remains invisible, and that makes no sense. If we are seeing the scene from Cat's point of view the can and foam should both be visible, and if it is from Lister's then neither should be.
