|Everything flowed a bit too smoothly and they should've been more resistance to the idea of a future vision especially by the media.|
I thought that initially but the fact that so many people saw the same date and time and that if two people were together in the future they both had the same vision kind of made visions of the future the most likely conclusion. Also, according to the characters it was more than just a vision, they could feel their emotion at the time...i.e. mark was scared, and his wife noted how she felt a great affection for the new guy.
With that said, I'm interested to see Penny's future new love when he meets her next week. He surely saw her in his vision.
