  • Parker undertakes a Backstep during Dangerous Solar Activity and accidentally brings a woman back from the dead.

    This was an interesting episode but it didn't feel like a season premiere. The Pilot of the series had Parker BackStepping for the very first time to save The President and the Vice President from Assasination. The Second season opened with Parker Backstepping to retrieve the nuclear football and prevent a nuclear holocaust. The Third opens with Parker Backstepping to stop a train derailment.

    After the Finale of Season 2, "The Cure" it was expected that there would be some progression in Frank and Olga's relationship. Sadly, nothing had changed at all. The pair had a little bit of playful banter but it was very minimal.

    Ever since the shows move from Los Angeles to Canada, the role of Isaac Metnor had decreased, at the start of this season, he is no longer a series regular. Nor is John Ballard, but he does make an appearance, maintaining the level of participation from his character that has been in existence since the beginning of the series.

    The plot itself was interesting, Parker brings someone back from "The Other Side." Her reactions to the world 20 years in the future are interesting. The drama back at NNL is very well executed relying on the actors performances to carry that part of the episode.

    The New Men in Black seem much less than the original 2 of Charley Lang and Jerome Butler. Watching their interactions makes me really wish they had gotten them back for this episode.

    The weapons deal gone wrong action scene was good to give Parker an opportunity to have an action hero moment. Not to mention break up some of the scenes.

    The ending was very well handled. Although a little weird. The final scene was a little cliché, the whole "Back to normal is a madhouse" type of thing.
