    "The Betrayal" is a one-of-a-kind episode of Seinfeld - and a good one at that. As usual, every character has their own thing going on in this film (Jerry, George and Elaine's story lines are all intertwined while Kramer has his own set of problems that are removed from the rest of the cast) but what is unusual about this episode is that the story is played linearly - backwards! Jerry, George, Nina (Jerry's ex who George is now dating) and Elaine go to India for the wedding of Elaine's hated arch-nemesis Sue Ellen Mishky - one can only guess how well that turns out - and Kramer seeks every superstitious way out of FDR's death wish. While the episode is presented in a unique fashion - you can see that it's a typical story for our Seinfeld crew.
