In this note, we show that there exist solutions of the Muskat problem that shift stability regimes: they start unstable, then become stable and finally return to the unstable regime. We also exhibit numerical evidence of solutions with medium-sized L norm of the derivative of the initial condition that develop a turning singularity.
