We are the cause of what we try to prevent.
17 December 2006 | by (Colorado) – See all my reviews

This episode deals with a group of time travels who attempt to go back in time and kill baby Hitler to prevent the homicide. Katherine Heigl goes back disguised as a servant and begins her plan to take baby Hitler's life, stealing the baby while it sleeps and drowning it with herself in the river. When another servant discovers the baby is missing and panics, she offers a homeless woman money for her child, which she takes and the servant returns with the unrelated baby, disguising him as the real one. Hitler's parents do not notice and raise the child...

A great episode showing one of the many theories and paradoxes of time travel! We end up being the cause of what we try to prevent...excellent idea!
