  • A good episode.

    This episode wasn’t that thrilling because you already know what’s going on in the beginning. However, the idea of a time slip, where the past can be seen in the present was interesting to watch. Hearing voices in the supermarket, being short by a 140 year old bullet and trying to communicate to a soldier over a century ago is just some of the things that Paul experiences in this episode. Andrew Kawowit did a fine job playing Henry Tucker. They could have involved Ginnie’s character a little more, but even otherwise, it was a nice episode to watch.moreless

      Paul: And what happened?
      Alva: (softly) Nothing.

    • Solider doctor: In medical school, a few of us attempted to reconcile the spirit with matter. We took each corner of a dying mans bed and put it on a scale.
      Henry Tucker: What happened?
      Solider doctor: Nothing. It weighed the same in death as it did in life. No spirit left his body.

    • Alva: Picture, if you will, years stacked on top of years like pages in the Sunday Times. Now, picture spilling coffee on the top pages. The top page becomes wet, it also becomes transparent allowing you to see through it to the page beneath.
      Paul: The past becomes visible.
      Alva: Briefly, and as the top page dries ...
      Paul: The past becomes invisible again.
