After breaking out of a moon-based maximum security prison, Boris the Animal decides to go back in time and eliminate the person who arrested him - Agent K. When he does so, Agent J realizes that the time line has been changed and he too travels back to July 15, 1969, the day before Agent K is killed. After overcoming some disbelief, J manages to convince K and others of just who he is and why he's there. With the help of a being who can see all time lines, they track Boris down. J also learns a secret, something K had never told him. Written by

Did You Know?
When Jay exits The Chrysler Building in 1969, he is facing The Roosevelt Hotel. In 1969 the hotel across the street from The Chrysler Building was the Commodore Hotel. Opening in 1919, it was completely rebuilt including being completely covered with a glass facade and reopened in 1980 as the Grand Hyatt Hotel. The Roosevelt Hotel is at the corner of Madison Avenue and 45th Street. Opening in 1924, it would have been a better fit for 1969 New York City than the modern glass covered Grand Hyatt. See more
