Why waste so much police resources?
16 July 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Opening scene of a child darting in and out of traffic as he plays chicken with a trolley car.

Fast forward to next scene where he is now a chemistry professor and walks into his lab to find two students have spilled a container of some chemical. Students are obviously dating/in love so professor says to not worry about it and he will clean it up. Off they go and the professor discovers that the spilled chemical is quite lethal when accidentally inhaled...he calls the authorities to tell them someone should pick up the kids and bring them to a hospital. Strangely he does not go himself. Instead he apparently knows he is soon to be dead so he goes around tying up loose ends. The police get involved and spend a lot of time and resources trying to find him when he doesn't go to the hospital. Not sure why the police get so involved in a search for a man who is not a criminal or contagious or a danger to anyone! Perhaps someone could tell me what I am missing? Just a strange episode to me.

It turns out to be a pretty sad story but just not sure what it is doing in this fabulous series.
