Gene Hunt just wants to find and lynch the obvious "pacifist hippie scum" suspects. Luckily Sam insists to look for evidence and thus discovers that Jimmy's dearly missed father also lead a secret life, which costs him any sympathy from bigot Ray. During the investigation, Tyler realizes he's returned to the very block and house where he lived for a while in between his dad's many moves, wondering if his youth is his mission. A guru inspires the theory his supposed future background may be the actual illusion he's about to wake up from.

During the opening sequence in the park, the soap bubble containers have UPC bar codes upon them. The Universal Product Code technology existed in 1973, but was currently in product testing only in a Kroger store in Cincinatti, Ohio, and another in Troy, Ohio. The UPC was not printed upon the labels of commercial items for another three years, and then only on a select few items. See more
