Trivia

This is not a mistake, as it has been shown many times, because that is the way they spell it in the alternate universe. In many scenes 'Manhattan' is misspelled as 'Manhatan' in the floating letters and on the side of a city bus in Season 3, "The Plateau". See more »

Goofs

During the bus incident, an older gentleman knocks over the post office mail box into the street. In the United States post office mail boxes are bolted into the ground and can't be knocked over by the average person. See more »

don't think it gets any better than this
10 August 2015 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

We are not talking about the series here we are talking about the ingredients of a standout episode, one for the history books.

Just as the audience is trying to adjust to the antics of Torv in the "alternate universe" (no mean feat in itself) we are presented with what in the TV world qualifies as serendipity The two arcs, the long and the short arc, are both mesmerizing. We want Olivia to understand what has been done to her, the long arc, and we want her to catch the bad guy in the short arc.

Both stories grab the viewer by the neck and hold attention to the last second of the episode.

Does it get any better than that? Then the piece de resistance, you realize that the solution from the short arc is also the key to the long arc. The two dovetail just before credits roll Brilliant
