Storyline

Jane and her team are tracking a Neuro with unknown abilities who is attempting to assassinate a Chinese diplomat. Though they manage to thwart the killer's plan, Jane eventually discovers the neuro's power - he has the ability to rewind and replay the current day over and over again until he gets it right. Usually everyone's memory of events resets to the beginning and no one realizes that they are stuck in a temporal 'loop', but Jane begins to get feelings of Deja-vu and realizes what the Neuro is doing. But with each new day, the killer changes his plans to counter Jane's team attempts to stop him. Written by anonymous

One of the worst....
22 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Okay so this is not the best show when it comes to continuity, content, or creativity but this episode was just stupid. I get the whole ground hog day rip off of repeating time. I would have been fine with it. But it makes no sense for somethings to repeat and not others. Like Jane being alive again but the button on Conner's shirt being missing. I can even fall behind the school of thought that the button since it fell in the Nuero's pocket and was in his time loop bubble was therefore left out of the looped equation. But, when they looped the second time around, the button was no longer in his pocket and outside his little time loop bubble. So why was it still missing?
