Storyline

Sam leaps into the 19th century during the Civil War. He is a Union soldier and wanders around. Eventually he comes to a house and is taken captive by the owner, a woman. When Al arrives he tells Sam that the man's name is Beckett. Sam remembers he had an ancestor who serve in the Union Army during the Civil War and that he married a Southern woman; the woman who captured him. Since Sam knows that's what's going to happen, and everything is going as he remembers it did, that's not why he is there. So while Al tries to find out, Sam tries to earn her trust.

You never saw it coming
11 March 2006 | by (wichita, USA) – See all my reviews

After all the slapdash, un-inspired junk displayed in season 5 up to this point, I was totally unprepared for the superb craftsmanship this displayed. This episode is filled to the brim with heart, feeling, surprise and even some subtle humor. You can actually see and feel what's happening between the characters. Which is something we're seeing less and less in sci-fi today.

Aside from certain conversations I won't risk spoiling, I'd say the ending is definitely the finest thing about it. In my "humble" opinion, it's episodes like this that made this series great. To me it's a definite must see. But I urge you, don't take my word for it! Go see it for yourself. Form your own opinion. Do i need to say it? 5 of 5 stars!
