A very touching and unique episode of Millennium.
14 June 2011 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

During Christmas time, Frank (Lance Henriksen) remembers the events surrounding his mother's death in his childhood. Meanwhile, Jordan (Brittany Tiplady) is visited by the spirit of her dead grandmother, Frank's mother. Frank becomes worried about Jordan's gift, and what it will do to her in the future. In a scene, Catherine ( Megan Gallagher) tells Frank that his gift caused him a mental breakdown and separated him from his family. She tells Frank she doesn't want the same thing to happen to Jordan, she doesn't want her to not have anywhere to turn to other than within herself. By the end of the episode, in a very touching moment, Frank reconciles with his father, with whom he wasn't speaking for years, and in the last scene Frank and Jordan share a vision of the souls of the people who are about to die, among the souls, is Frank's father.

I am very fond of this episode, different from the majority of Millennium episodes, this is a very light one, and there is no crime scene, serial killer or any manifestation of evil. It's a Christmas episode, we can take a look at Frank's personal life, his struggle to maintain his sanity, to save his marriage and above all to have a normal relationship with his daughter. There is also a very good moment between Frank and Lara Means ( Kristen Cloke). Every time I finish watching this episode, I am left with a great feeling inside, it's truly a great episode, one of the best of the series, certainly the best written by Erin Maher e Kay Reindl.
