I like the conceit of naming the episode after the odd choice of music during each week's gunfight/chase sequence. (Even if it didn't pan out last week due to licensing issues...)

Olivia walking in on Mark and Lloyd was awesome, as was Mark's expression in shaking Lloyd's hand. The ensuing Mark-Olivia angst-fest was about enjoyable as expected. So it would seem that the flashforwards destroy their marriage causing them to be apart and cheating/drinking in their flashforwards... Well done, people.

Mark chasing after the kids dressed as the assassins was amusing. Why, if you only egged a house, would you run from an FBI agent brandishing a gun with no badge?

How has a kangaroo been surviving free in LA for 25 days?

So Janis' odds of having a kid are basically nil, and now she wants a kid because she thought she would have a kid? Is she going to beat the odds or would it be possible for her to get a uterus transplant or something? At least now we know that she wants a kid...

Its seems that Al, Demetri, and Bryce are the only people admitting that the flashforwards are changing everyone's behaviour.

That wasn't Bryce in Simon's flashforward, was it?

So now we've got a glimpse of Charlie's flash... How does encouraging Dylan to take a cookie mean no more good days? And how does she know D. Gibbons?

Did Lloyd realize that whatever they were doing would cause a global blackout? Because he's extra douchey now since he either let his ex-wife die because he didn't warn her (and he's lucky that Dylan survived), or he killed 20 million people just to get custody of his child. At least Simon seems to revel in his sleaziness.

Funny story...

About a year ago, I was walking this friend of mine home after drinking all night and we saw a Dingo. Not a normal dog, not a wolf, but a fucking Australian Dingo.

Where it came from, what it's doing running around Hollywood Blvd at 3am in the morning, I haven't a clue. It had what looked like a dead cat in it's mouth. We stopped, it stopped and looked at us and ran off.

A wild, Australian Dingo... in one of the most populated areas of Los Angeles, hell, the United States even. Just roaming around at night killing cats for food.

This was near Hollywood and Highland which is one of the top ten busiest intersections IN THE WORLD, mind you.

The only thing we could come up with is that the Hollywood hills are really close to that area and it lives up there somewhere sleeping during the day and feeds at night.

I have seen it on more then that one occasion and the LAPD officer we talked to said it's been around the area for a good long while, they just haven't been able to catch it.

Crazy!

Dingo, coyote, feral dog cross. If it actually is a dingo per se, it could have been somebody's idea of a designer pet. Canids are adaptable guys!

Per Wikipedia (en.wikipedia.org), kangaroos graze & enjoy fruit & shrubbery. Sounds like SoCal to me! 'Specially since he's moved out of downtown into the suburbs. Unless he has his own stash of Roo Chow (mazuri.com). As far as predators, I imagine the coyotes would just plain not want to mess with something that weird! "Biggest damn mouse I've ever seen."

Lloyd: "Our experiment killed 20 million people, Simon. What more is there to say?" So, I think that Lloyd didn't know that things would go down the way they did. Whether it was in scope, duration, side effects or whatever. Nor do we actually know whether Simon & Lloyd *did* it, or whether somebody else picked up work that they'd done & warped it.

Only if you can accompany it with the appropriate google image search results for "quantum physicist genuis".

Now, was she just a random hot chick on the train, or was she there with the intent of snuggling up to Simon?

Good to see the show is starting to reveal the answer to the mystery slowly, and I really really like the married couple's storyline, after hating it in the first few episodes. That scene with the two guys and her was very tense. I am really enjoying this show now.

That was a fun episode. I like the way they're revealling things slowly but surely while creating new points of intrigue, while managing to blend in random comedic moments along the way.

I still have no clue what last week's music was all about though. I'll add it to the lengthy list of Things I Will Never be Able to Figure Out On My Own and move on.

Yeesh. Aye, less of that please. They're both blaming each other for stuff they ain't done yet and they know it, yet for some reason refuse to call it even and move on.

Well, he *did* have a gun. and the "no badge" thing would surely make you more likely to run? At least if you know he's an FBI agent you can be fairly sure if you surrender you live.


    So Janis' odds of having a kid are basically nil, and now she wants a kid because she thought she would have a kid? Is she going to beat the odds or would it be possible for her to get a uterus transplant or something? At least now we know that she wants a kid...

She'll still have a kid. I'm thinking/hoping Noh not dying might be the first thing that doesn't come true from the flashforwards. Of course they could pull that off without directly contradicting the flashforward since the only confirmation we have is a report saying he's dead. Mark et al could decide to stage his death (perhaps because whoever did this will need to be convinced everything is going according to plan) by faking the report and having him knocked out in 6 months time.


    That wasn't Bryce in Simon's flashforward, was it?


Not unless Bryce really hits the cheeseburgers. Dude was portly.


    So now we've got a glimpse of Charlie's flash... How does encouraging Dylan to take a cookie mean no more good days? And how does she know D. Gibbons?

She might learn to fear D. Gibbons any time over the next six months and just happen to have been thinking about him six months from now. Although save for Olivia saying she knew Lloyd was importnat to her, they haven't really gone over how much of the accumulated knowledge you get during the next six months was accessible during the flashforwards. I figure it's "anything you thought about during that 137 seconds".

I must say Charlie's very chirpy for someone who recently proclaimed there would be no more good days. Kids rebound fast I guess.

Beyond 47 minutes of nerding out at the cast, producers and George RR Martin - and Jason Momoa stealing the whole show - there are interesting tidbits to be had here.
