Thanks. I can't find the article I read which had them being much more careful about committing to anything - what they previously said could have been interpreted as either "they had a secret explanation for how it works with the snap, but no need to tell anyone to confuse them" or "we just dont want to deal with the snap, it doesnt fit our story so we are ignoring it."
Notice in your article, it points out the problems with saying its pre-snap. Season 5 had references to events that would make it impossible for Season 6 NOT be in the snap period. So bringing us back to this thread, this definitely qualifies as a discontinuity
