  • Alright so Felicity has traveled back in time so she wouldn't suffer another heartbreak from Ben. She tries to convince Noel that she wants to with him, so she confesses that she traveled through time to fix her love life. Noel gets freaked and tells Ben.moreless

    I love this episode. Both Ben and Noel have Felicity committed. It's hilarious! Felicity gets totally flustered that they don't believe her, so she tells Ben that his father will have kidney problems and that he should call him and his AA supervisor, Lauren(?). Ben doesn't, but Lauren calls and tells him exactly what Felicity said. He breaks her out. Meghan is furious that they committed her in the first place- I love Megan, the show would not have been the same if she left! This is the most messed up time travel experience that had me laughing like no other. But it was sad in the end, when Felicity's actions change the future for the worst =(.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Felicity claims that it was the same fire from before that Noel died in, but it couldn't have been. The first time the fire happened a lot later, after Ben slept with Lauren. This time Ben hadn't even met Lauren. Felicity had nothing to do with the fire so she wouldn't have affected it at all. So it doesn't make sense that the fire happened two months earlier and the same guy came into Noel's office and said the same thing two months earlier. (Ed. note: I'm not sure if the fire happened two months earlier. The timeline is very hard to follow in the time travel storyline.)
