Flash Forward -- "The Gift" -- 11/05/09

Flash Foward

Synopsis:

Spoiler:


An MI6 agent (Alex Kingston) helps Mark, Demetri and Gough investigate a Blue Hand club and its possible link to some suicides. In other events, a former Army pal of Aaron's daughter visits him; Demetri confesses to Zoey about his blank flash-forward; and Nicole and Bryce figure out the mystery of his vision while volunteering at the hospital.



Actually sounds like an interesting episode that will answer some questions.

Best episode since the pilot. Not hard to do, but still...

Nice episode - loving this show more and more every week.

Interesting they killed off Jett Jackson. Puts a nice twist on things.

I type in www.alreadyghosts.com and just take me to the show site. Lame.

Good episode.

Agreed; As much as they want to make Dominic Monaghan and Jack Davenport the bad guys, it'd be really interesting to see them not go that route. If they did an experiment without knowing it would cause a blackout, what can they really be charged with?

The whole Already Ghosts/nihilist stuff was pretty good.

This was a decent episode, and I'm glad it was finally established that the future can be changed, but it lost points from me by using such a contrived & overly dramatic event to do it. Plus the last thing this show needs is less characters who are actually interesting.

But isn't that one of the only ways something like that could be proven right now? The alternative is just to wait until FlashForward day to prove anything, and by then it might be too late.

And remember that he found out his actions between now and then killed someone and made their kids orphans. He decided to take his own life instead of risking hers. Seemed pretty noble to me actually.

The geek in me is question whether the future would self correct and the mother would die a different way. I doubt they would go that route but still.

Killing yourself is a pretty damn drastic move for something you *might* do in the future that apparently is an accident. If the guy was suicidal anyway and this put him over the edge then fine, but they gave no indication of that. It just strikes me as sloppy writing & cheap shock value.

I like her, but personally for me Peyton List is the hottest one of the show.

I see his suicide as majorly selfless act. Not only to save Celia, but to give a giant dose of hope to those who experienced a problematic FlashForward.
But, on the flipside, it could be a bummer to those who had a pleasant FlashForward.

I honestly thought for a second he was going to jump off the building and land on top of the mom as the future corrected itself. I think that might have been a bit too bleak though and slightly funny.
