  • I seemed to be in the minority, but I quite liked this one

    This episode had 'heart', the scene at the end was very touching. I liked the fact that Keiko & Miles didn't just let Molly be confined in some institution and ended up risking a lot to break her out of her cell & take her back to the portal. They showed they were great parents who were willing to sacrifice any chance of ever seeing their daughter again because it was the best thing to do for her- they were willing to put her desires before their own. It would have been very sad from a parent's point of view to have to watch their daughter walk towards the portal knowing they were never going to see her again. Of course, the younger Molly did come back, with the older Molly being erased from the time line which was both a happy and sad ending.
