This little spoiler was found in the "teaser" that aired for this episode after last week's show:

I have even more questions after watching this Episode.

Can't believe there are only 3 Episodes left. I wonder how this is going to all wrap-up in that time frame.

GREAT episode! Loved it, especially the old men on the porch at the end. What did they do in 1990?
I'm hooked.

This season is definitely better than Season 1 though I am sort of unhappy I clicked on that picture though I have no idea how it could relate. Will stay out of threads until its over. But man this was a fantastic episode and the scene of the porch was just breathtaking. I do think I know where it winds up though, so we'll see. I might rewatch the episodes before next week.

I'm dying to know what Hayes did in 1990 that caused the rift.

Based on what we saw in this episode, here's my speculation on what went down:

Spoiler:
The murderer/kidnapper turns out to be the missing detective (who was also the cop who identified the backpack in 1980). Hayes discovers this in 1990 and murders him.


On a totally different note, did the scene referenced by Nefarious above make the final cut? I don't recall seeing it.

No, it didn't. Further evidence that the creators/producers are just having fun messing with people.

I just watched the promo, there are a LOT of scenes that were not in the episode. So it may still be coming...

Ah. Yeah, it may be a teaser of what's left to happen in the season. I noticed there is no specific preview for E06.
