Easy, when they're using and subverting time's arrow theory.

They don't need to. It gets in the way of the plot. And is unimportant. It happens, they're there, the end.

What, the "I put you into stasis for three years, using my emergency powers" explanation, or the subversion of "information cannot be transported back through time" (time's arrow) when not only she sent her past self information that synched said past self with her current self, or the similar discussion on how sending Kyon back three years lead to the situation he finds himself in, today (giving Haruhi most of the ideas that she put into action)?
Not a lot, there, to ponder over for too long.

Excluding the fact that traveling back in time is likely to break the universe, itself. Cheers.
