Reincarnation
14 April 2015 | by AaronCapenBannerSee all my reviews

Last episode of the first season tackles the mysterious and universal topic of reincarnation, as a married couple(played by Warren Stevens as Len Barrett, & Bethel Leslie) traveling in India by train encounter a seemingly harmless old beggar that drives the man crazy with rage, as Len forgets who he or his wife are, determined to kill the beggar for reasons he can't define. Despite the efforts of local police, it seems that nothing can stop the killing, which recalls a similar murder many years ago that occurred on the very day that Len was born... Intriguing episode creates good local flavor as it tells its tragic tale of unavoidable fate.
