Episode Summary

EDIT
A Stitch in Time
AIRED:
FBI agent Jamie Pratt has investigated some pretty strange cases in her time but this one may be the strangest of all. During the last fifty years, seventeen men throughout the country were all murdered with the same gun. This gun is traced to Dr. Theresa Givens, a scientist who recently left a top-secret government agency. This discovery deepens the mystery because Givens was only five years old at the time of the first murder. The gun itself hadn't even been made. While investigating further, Pratt discovers a secret that lies behind the locked door in Dr. Givens' office and learns first-hand of the temptations and dangers of undoing the evils of the past.moreless

  • Killings spanning 50 years, all linked to the same gun. The gun linked to a Dr Theresa Givens (Amanda Plummer) who was only 5 years old during the first killing. How is all this possible?moreless

    Amanda Plummer fully deserves her Emmy Award for her portrayal of Dr Theresa Givens. Michelle Forbes as FBI agent Jamie Pratt also gives a strong performance. The writing and storyline is excellent. But an excellent story still requires strong performances to bring it all together. And for this show it certainly was there. Gripping from start to finish. No plastic looking aliens who can speak English here. Just a captivating story with an outstanding performance by Amanda Plummer. This story will keep you thinking even after the credits roll. I can't help but feel that some of the more recent movies (eg. Butterfly Effect borrowed the theme from here.) Even if you are not into sci-fi, watch it for the amazing performances! You will not regret it.moreless
