Storyline

Henry Marshall has finally been released from prison, after doing his own penance and that of his scheming ex-boss Evans. Now he means to have his revenge. Gun in hand, he rides the elevator to the company Christmas party and shoots several guests. Then he races away, eventually finding a small tavern and the mysterious Lucas, who tries to teach him that his life is connected to other lives. If Henry can learn this lesson he may get a second chance; if not, death awaits him. Written by CommanderBalok

It's a Wonderful Life Plays It Forward
4 March 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a truly memorable offering from the first season of the series. It's about a man who has rotted in prison, being made the fall guy in a blue-collar caper. While he girds his loins but meets a beautiful blonde (Rebecca de Mornay) who tries to settle him down. He has several opportunities to avoid avenging himself, but follows through with a cold-blooded attack during a Christmas party. He is himself shot, hijacks a car, and heads off to the hinterlands. Bleeding from his wound, he goes to a local bar and asks for a drink. He is given soup and drink by a kind bartender/owner. While he sits in his misery, a man about the same age begins to talk to him in a friendly way. Our hero is annoyed and tries to rid himself of the "pest." However, this guy knows a lot about the murderer and his actions and begins the process of trying to talk the guy down. As the two interact, it becomes obvious that the young convict has been somehow chosen and has been given a chance at reclamation. What transpires is a wonderful bit of television with a neat twist. This is one of the better episodes in this series.
