Did You Know?

Of the three leapers featured in this episode, Alia is the only one who leaped into a person of the same gender, namely Angel Jensen, given that Sam leaped into Liz Tate and Zoey leaped into Clifton Meyers.See more »
Continuity: (at around 39 mins) When Sam is searching for Alia/Angel and Vivian (the helpful guard) (in what appears to be the basement), Sam finds Vivian who asks "Sam, what the hell am I suppose to do"? She should not know that Liz is Sam until the very next scene.See more »
Zoey:You know, Thames, this is the perfect place for revenge.
Thames:Other than a 12th Century torture chamber with iron maidens and a few racks, it runs a close second. But you know, I wouldn't put it past you to call Torture Chambers-R-Us and ask for an immediate installation.

This Episode May Swiss Cheese YOUR Brain!, 24 October 2015
Author: prisminstructor

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Wow! This is about the seventh or eighth time I saw this episode and, unlike some other episodes, I don't learn enough additional info by repeated viewings. The concept in this one is great and it DOES make sense despite a few holes in the story that would not neatly fit into the concept unless this was extended for another episode. But, actually, this is the SECOND part of the previous episode which is somewhat dependent on the viewer having watched "Deliver Us from Evil" -- an episode from season 5 (Season-5, episode 7)--in which Alia (the "evil" leaper, makes her debut.) Alia is a time traveler like Sam except her role is to make WRONG what was once RIGHT--the polar opposite role of Sam's reasons for leaping. The issue with THIS episode (Revenge of the Evil Leaper) is there are too many identity changes, most of which are made even more confusing because there are gender AND racial changes involved (ie. The black, male prison warden is taken over by a white female. This gets even more strange when the black male warden sexually assaults the prisoners at this all female prison. Enter actress Carolyn Seymour who is portraying this male role, and things get very strange. Confused? It's a challenge to grasp all parts of this episode while watching, let alone trying to write a logical explanation here! I suppose DB didn't want another three-part story since they just concluded "Trilogy" five episodes ago. However, it's my strong opinion this should have been a three parter as well. The risk with three-part "to be continued" episodes is losing some viewers who didn't like or missed the first and/or second parts. So.....four points for the CONCEPT, but nothing else.
