I think that turns probably just end when the time for that turn is up, so no turn can last forever, but I'm confused by your use of the term "observer effect." What exactly do you mean by that?

If the only possible answer to a difficulty in a theory is "plot" then the theory is surely wrong. Plot is not a real explanation for anything, so you can't use it to save a troubled theory. Maybe the observer effect doesn't even exist.
