Goofs

At the beginning of the episode, the narrator says "Previously on the Event, the president uncovered a conspiracy that spans a century." However, Thomas and Sophia's craft crashed in 1944, and there has been nothing indicating that the conspiracy central to the series somehow goes back further than that. All evidence also suggests that the series takes place in the present and not 2044. See more »
