Interesting theories!! This question woke me up at 6am! Was Bell behind all of Jones' action in season 1 as well?? Part of me doubts it, but I'm not sure if that's just because I liked Bell and I wanted him to be a good guy! I have a hard time believing he would have given his life for the others if he had the same intentions at the time. At the same time, Olivia was given the light box tests in both timelines, so if that was Bell's idea, it must have been him both times. I guess it could have been Jones' input. Part of me wonders if the writers sorta didn't think about this stuff and just made up the Bell timeline 2 stuff later. But I do have a little more faith in them than that (or at least I want to) so I keep trying to find the reason in it! What do you think?
This is a great point I hadn't thought of! I think that maybe in the timeline where Peter Bishop hadn't existed, and he wasn't there to cut Jones in half by turning off the portal, Jones met up with Bell and they ended up joining forces then?

I think it's worth noting that there there are similarities and differences to the light test in 1.14 and 4.14.

"It has arrived!"
I wonder if bellivia slipped Peter a soul magnet into his Tea as well when he was inside of Olivia at the bishop home. If true bell might of went along for the ride with Peter into the future and recalled his journey. Young peter? 47 year old peter in 2026? Maybe no connection but, if Peter was erased maybe he was astral projected by bell. Bell said he had seen the future repeat itself many times as well. If a soul is the body of Olivia and Peter, I don't think it could be fully erased due to the imprinting on the souls.
Like September said it was impossible for Peters return and really had no logical explanation. Unless of course it was September who cared and loved Peter like August loved the girl which brought Peter back.
So if Peter, Walter and Olivia had all taken Soul Magnets for the sake of Bells endgame it could make some since how they ultimately remember Peter as well.
Peter and Walter should break out the chalk board for some scientific math to figure this out mhhhh
Possibility for both actions to have accured. I like the idea of Peter and Olivia both being duped with soul Magnets to bring her conscious along with bells conscious forward to the new timeline
