    • 10/10. Yes, 10/10. This episode was freaking amazing.

      10
      This was a super amazing episode. I hate giving 10/10, but this episode deserves it. Dr. Lee was great in this episode, which doesn't usually happen. I also liked Hannah and Det. Vega, who I don't always like. And then, of course, Det. Bird was great as usual. It's hard to judge Rex and Dr. Evans in this episode. And then Michael. Jason Isaacs is an amazing actor. Seriously. This was awesome. And then all of the guests were great in this episode. So much happened, and he realized the accident was no accident! Also, prepare for Dr. Lee to say he is creating an excuse because, as he sees Rex alive again, he no longer blames himself. Also, I think there may be an attempt to kill Michael in the red reality coming soon.

      My Theory: Ed is associated with Gemini. (One or both of the two lives in two realities as Gemini found out about Michael's two realities in "Oregon". Gemini told Ed. In the green reality, Ed wants to help Michael. He bumped into Michael to jog his memory. And then he gets stuck in the red reality until he discovers that Ed killed him in the red reality. (Thanks to Tim Surette, as his theory got me thinking and led me to my theory!)

      Also, was the accident actually an accident in the green reality? And will we see Gemini again? How will Dr. Evans react when Michael explains? I want to know the answers!moreless
    • Great Show!!!

      9.0
      What a good episode.

      Really nice show, with such potential.

      It's a shame that NBC cancelled it.

      Was really getting into it.

      Yet another good show cancelled

    • Solid episode

      Now we are getting somewhere. Something is jogging his memory where he now remembers bits and pieces of his accident. This episode his "conscience", just so happens to be, another cop. But, better still, the person who ran his car off the road the night of the accident. (Rubbing my hands together). Now, we're getting into the background story of what caused this problem for Michael. He now knows, and how this episode ended, the only people he can trust is the psychiatrists. I hope NBC chooses not to cancel the show. They've already cancelled several shows I've like this season. Please, not this one also....moreless
    • Superb!

      Best episode! If the last episodes are as good as this, then Awake will be a classic. Jason Isaacs and the rest of the cast just nailed it.
    • Best Episode of TV Ever???

      10
      I think the Pilot episode has competition for best episode of the series. Everything about this episode was incredible. Even the procedural aspect was good. It was great to see Michael finally grieve for someone (Rex in this case). What a great job he did too. I think the scene between him and Emma's father (both, but especially the second) was so heart wrenching. There isn't much more to say as everything was just awesome. I am glad Michael now knows he was targeted and it will be interesting to see how they wrap it up in the next two episodes. I hate that NBC has canceled the show, but I know it will be one of the best series finales of TV history. Hopefully there is some way this show can be saved, but I have a feeling there will only be two more episodes of one of the greatest shows ever.moreless

      • Michael: I will not lose my son.
        Lee: Detective, you lost your son six months ago.

      • Hawkins: You don't look well, Detective.
        Michael: What is this? How did you...?
        Hawkins: Well, either I just leapt through time and space, or ding, ding, ding! You're hallucinating.

      • Michael: I'm having a lot more difficulty dealing with Rex's death than I thought. And... I know I'm in no position to tell you what to do. I just wanted to tell you that losing a child is... is the worst thing that has ever happened to me. And--and to watch you voluntarily cut yourself off from her... I would give anything... anything or one more day... one more hour... one more... one more second with my boy. You know? And, uh, and... you can hate her or her decision or the baby or us, but none of it matters. You just hold her tight... and you don't let her go. Because she... you never know.
