    was/were supposed to/going to

    Hi everyone
    Was/ was were supposed to
    can mean [that] what was expected didn't or won't happen.[examples:]
    ,I wasn't going to go to the party(but I guess I will)

    I wasn't supposed to go by myself (but I'll have to).


    I want to know why it isn't:

    ,I wasn't going to go to the party(but I guess I would)
    I wasn't supposed to go by myself (but I would have to) They are future in the past,not simple future
    Here is the picture
