Yes, I'm a sellout. Offer me time travel and go where I want. Show that go back or jump forward and I melt me like a bar of butter in a hot day. It is one of my subjects of choice and this white tulip was this love of destruction.
After a week if repetitive and boring, we came to the exciting story of one man - the mythical Peter Weller - walking backwards with your timeline, your destination. He is a genius who tries to find way to bend time, returning to the past and save his beloved (who died tragically in an automobile accident). The problem is that every time he jumps a huge amount of energy is consumed causing the death of all living beings around them. That's how the episode starts, a slippery subway train, where a moment's notice all lose their lives.
The investigation was opened and returned to Walter (John Noble), which is arguably the best character of this universe. Olivia (Anna Torv) is set aside and the old scientist who is about to take any role and when this happens the series gains depth. It is thick, complex and refreshing. He locks the internal dilemma of telling the truth or not your child. Write a letter in his pocket, hoping that the letters comply with what the eyes can not. And spend of your problem to the central problem of the episode, it is also he who solves it. The scene was absolutely fantastic the two geniuses meet and find sympathy in pain each. In the agony of losing those we love most. The time traveler then follows their journey and get back to the sad days, getting into the car, kissing his wife and losing his life. But before that can write a letter to Walter can send a picture of a white tulip, the forgiveness that both wanted by the act he committed. Beautiful end. Beautiful story.
Another point in favor of the episode was a narrative structure that embraced the dynamics of time travel, going back several times - and I still should have retreated more - putting ourselves in the skin of the traveler. It really is that it is necessary to stimulate and innovate within each case weekly, it is not mandatory weekly marriages central to the mythology. Whenever the series can innovate in how we tell a story or in a hidden mystery, felt his identity and to the surface, and this is very good.
The Best: The whole story in itself.
The Worst: Why all cases a week are not so?
