Episode Summary

Led by a dream, Veronica touches her mother's pendant to a stone monolith. A flash of mysterious energy knocks her unconscious, causing her to relive her last days with her long-lost parents as a young girl. When she awakes, she's shocked to realize her new memories don't match what she's always remembered of that time. With the fate of her parents no longer unknown, Veronica is at peace, though she realizes a larger mystery is still to be revealed-her mother's pendant is somehow the key to her own destiny… and that destiny is fast approaching.moreless

  • A pivotal episode for Veronica but the best moments were in the little contretemps between Marguerite and Roxton. A marvelous pair of actors.

    I too was intrigued by the distinctive music from both Out of Time and Cave of Fear. I didn't see an obvious connection but the episode was like a whirlwind of breadcrumbs. Who knows what directions they might have led.

    A lot of people questioned both the bombshell around M's adoption and R's despair that things would never be the same between them. I wonder if her admission of adoption is what had led to their impasse at the beginning of Tapestry.

    I noticed the correction Roxton made when replying to M's diversion of 'the man who was voted most eloquent speaker in the House of Lords " He starts with "No, I'm the man wh..." before bringing the discussion back to the immediate. Was it that he realized she was leading him away from his purpose or was it then that he first came close to saying 'who loves you'?

    Even with all of the loopholes in the timeline, the show was lots of fun. (so why does the villain need an eyepatch if his eye wan't injured in his battle with TL?) And for whatever reason the guest stars on TLW make you appreciate the fine acting of the regulars. With Roxton,Challenger & Marguerite there is such richness to their dialogue, such opportunity for hidden meaning and humour.

    The exchanges between Challenger and Marguerite remind me of some of my favorite scenes - the epilogue of "Absolute Power" and their talk entering the cavern in "The Survivors" (international jewel thief wanted on 5 continents). The way she starts out with that hard edge when Challenger misidentifies the elemental forces and then softens as she says 'Good and evil'

    How often has Roxton made a riff on this refrain- "Let's leave this debate till we're back at the treehouse."

    Has Marguerite ever used this line before? "You must have me confused with someone else" Sounds familiar but the closest I could come was when she said to Kemper (Time after Time) "What can I say- you shouldn't believe everything you read."

    I've seen the 'don't know your own name' walkaway a number of times in fan videos and watched the passage of emotions across Ms Blakely's expressive face. It was a pleasure to actually hear Roxton's eloquent words that bring out those emotions.

    Amazing to see the quick-thinking Miss Krux stuck for words at least 5 times in one episode; the first was when she was finally ready for a question about her childhood , Roxton throws her for a loop by asking about their relationship.

    It's great to see an actress make a scene work when her dialogue consists of a few noises.

    And when she does speak, oh my 'a thousand reasons' to appreciate her acting.
