Storyline

Mason Stark lost his wife a year ago when she was shot by a mugger and he's now lost his job. He isn't too receptive to a colleague's suggestion that he get psychiatric help and locks himself in his office. He retrieves a gun from his desk drawer but suddenly finds himself transported to a hospital or prison where he sees other versions of himself locked away. Another version of himself tells him he's in an alternate reality where he can change the decisions he's made in life. He's asked to hunt down another extremely violent version of himself and stop him before he kills....again. Mason soon realizes that the choices he makes in this new world also have their own impact.

While it is one of the most creative episodes in the series, it is also monumentally confusing. There are two elements here: time travel and parallel universes.....I think. A man on the verge of suicide due to anger, guilt, and depression, finds himself thrust into a setting created by his own company through experimentation. He is asked by another version of himself to kill an evil version of himself. The inciting incident is the death of his wife by a mugger, a needless killing which he blames himself for. The other incident that brings it all to a head is his being fired from his job as project manager. There are trust issues, issues of time mutation, and about ten other things. Promises are made and things are not what they seem. Watch this once and then go back to the beginning and watch it again.
