Storyline

FBI Special Agent Jamie Pratt is working on a case involving a serial killer. They've found series of murders - some as far back as 30 years ago - where the victims were all killed with the same gun. They seem to have one victim per year over those 30 years and the murders are spread across the country. They can find no connection between the victims however. They get a break when recently declassified information shows that the gun used in all the murders was manufactured only a few years before and issued to a Dr. Theresa Givens at the National Security Agency. It makes no sense and no one can figure out how a recent gun could have been used in a murder 30 years ago. Givens left the NSA six months ago after her project was canceled and is now a university professor. Finding out the nature of that canceled project will give them the answers they seek.

Good Handling of Time Travel Implication
27 March 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Time travel is always a problem in science fiction from the simple fact that time would be mutable. When one reverses a decision in the past, what are the broad implications of that action. Also, does the time traveler maintain knowledge of the present and the past. This is responded to in this episode. A series of murders have taken place and young rape victim is responsible. She is going back in time to kill men whom she knows will eventually become violent rapists. This woman is played by Amanda Plummer who made a career out of playing many slightly unbalanced characters. Enter the police who have found fingerprints from past cases, linking Plummer's character to murders committed when she was in kindergarten. That's the story. We see Plummer go through a kind of time tunnel to locations where the pre-rapists are. She carries a gun and removes them cold-bloodedly. The interesting part of the story is how the young police detective maneuvers through the fourth dimension. This would make a good case study for a physics class.
