Storyline

With only one hour left to save humanity, Michael is about to resurrect Chidi upon who their entire hopes rest. In that resurrection, Michael wants to provide him with all his memories - in his Earthly life and many afterlives - in the correct order, which is not as easy as it may appear. If Michael is able to do this, the next question is if Chidi will be able to take all these memories and learn from them for arguably this biggest assignment, the issue being what has plagued him for his entire existence, namely his need to know the answer before taking any action.

Trivia

Noel Arthur, who plays Chidi's father, Emeka, is only 3 years older than William Jackson Harper. This is unremarkable, because several of the scenes between Chidi and his father are set earlier in Chidi's life, with Chidi being portrayed by baby or child actors instead of by Harper. See more »
