    One of the most ambiguous and engrossing episodes of "Millennium" is a perfect example of why the show failed to catch on with a wide audience. In "Walkabout," many questions are posed, only a few are answered and only a few of those are answered definitively. It's an open-ended story, where the facts are never completely clear and the story is used more as a vessel to learn about the characters.



    This is one of the episodes of the series that really delves into the "dark side" of Frank's gift. In the pilot, we learned that Frank left the FBI after a nervous breakdown but in this episode we begin to learn about what he went through during that period. His alias, his long periods away from home and his loss of memory seem to have returned, causing concern in himself and in Catherine. What makes it all the more frustrating is that Frank doesn't find the answers he seeks. The nature of his visions are still a mystery, and the fact that Jordan has inherited his gift is becoming more and more apparent.



    "Walkabout" is also a truly nightmarish episode, given the dream-like quality of Frank's flashbacks and the uneasy nature of the episode. The riot scenes, particularly in the teaser, are among the most frightening images the series has ever shown.



    The lack of concrete answers may make "Walkabout" sound like a bad episode, but it is not. If you can enjoy the ride, it's one of the best from Season 1.moreless
