Having been disappointed recently with this series, I found the implications of this episode quite captivating. A plague has decimated Earth. A few scientists have developed a method for going back in time. They have concluded that there is a ground zero, an inciting factor, that led to the plague. It is the job of a military man to go back and kill the person who has been identified. She is a lonely, attractive young woman who has harmed no one. She has, in fact, been dealt a hard lot in life. The man, of course, begins to have feelings for her and begins to hate his role. He starts to freelance, trying to find another way to bring about the same result without killing the young woman. The people in the future realize something is wrong. They are bound by a brief time frame and begin to panic. This is tenderly done with some real implications for all of us.
