GOD BLESS.

EXCUSE ME, SIR.

DO YOU HAVE ANY SPARE CHANGE? NO.

NO, I'M SORRY.

ANYTHING YOUCAN MANAGE, SIR.

THANK YOU.

GOD BLESS YOU ANYWAY, SIR.

[low rumbling] SPARE CHANGE? OH, GOD.

OH, GOD.

[gasping] NO, NO, PLEASE!LET ME OUTTA HERE! HELP! LET ME OUTTA HERE! [phone ringing] [Peter on answering machine]LEAVE A MESSAGE.

[beep] (Peter) IT'S PETER.

PICK UP.

HEY, WALTER.

IT'S PETER.

YOUR SON, PETER.

COME ON, WALTER.

PICK UP THE PHONE.

WALTER, PICK UP THE RECEIVER, AND HIT THE SQUARE BLACK BUTTON NEXT TO THE RED FLASHING LIGHT.

YOU REMEMBER? ALL RIGHT, FINE.

WHEN YOU GET THIS, I WANT YOU TO GETYOUR KIT TOGETHER.

I JUST GOT OFF THE PHONEWITH OLIVIA.

SHE SAID THERE WASAN INCIDENT ON A TRAIN, AND I KNOW HOW MUCH YOU LOVE TRAINS.

THOUGHT IT MIGHT CHEER YOU UP.

BE HOME TO PICK YOU UP IN 15 MINUTES, ALL RIGHT? [answering machineclicks off] (Peter)HAVE YOU NOTICEDANYTHING WEIRD? NOT YET, BUT GIVE ITTEN MINUTES.

I WAS ACTUALLYTALKING ABOUT WALTER.

HELLO.

I'M DR.

WALTER BISHOP.

(Peter) HE'S BEEN AVOIDING ME ALL WEEK.

HE DIDN'T EVENLOOK AT ME ON THE CAR RIDEOVER HERE.

HE'S STOPPED EATING.

I GOT HIM A NEW BOX OFPEAK FREANS.

HE HASN'T EVENOPENED IT.

WELL, DID HESAY SOMETHING? NO, ALL WEEK ITFEELS LIKE HE'S BEEN ENVELOPED INTHIS.

SADNESS.

I HAVEN'TNOTICED ANYTHING.

OH, MY.

SIR.

WHAT ARE YOU DOING? I'M CHECKINGTHEIR UNDERWEAR.

THEIR UNDERWEAR? I'M SUREYOU'RE FAMILIAR THAT WITHSUDDEN DEATH VICTIMS OFTENEXPERIENCE A SUDDENBLADDER RELEASE OF URINE, AND SOMETIMESEXCREMENT.

GET OFF THIS TRAIN.

HE'S WITH ME.

THANK YOU.

I DON'T KNOWWHAT HAPPENED TO THESE PEOPLE,AGENT DUNHAM.

MY FIRST GUESS IS COLLECTIVEHEART FAILURE.

YOU THINK THESEPEOPLE DIED FROM HAVING A HEART ATTACKAT THE SAME TIME? (Walter) PERHAPS IT WAS SYMPATHETIC.

CONTAGIOUS,LIKE YAWNING.

COME ON, WALTER.

YOU REALLYBELIEVE THAT? WALTER, DOES YOUR THEORYSUGGEST WHY ALL THE LIGHTS WOULD BE OUT IN THIS CAR? NO, THERE SHOULD BEBATTERY BACKUP.

UNLESS IT WASN'TSERVICED PROPERLY.

AGENT DUNHAM? (Broyles) HE CROSSED PATHS WITH THE MAN AS HE ENTERED THE TRAIN CAR.

SIX FOOT,BROWN HAIR, WEARING A TRENCH COAT.

AND HE'S SURE THATHE SAW HIM COMING OUT OF THISTRAIN CAR.

THE MANDIDN'T SPEAK TO HIM OR ACKNOWLEDGE HIM.

HE JUST EXITEDDOWN THE STAIRS OF THE PLATFORM.

DID WE PICK HIM UPON SURVEILLANCE? I'M WAITING TO GET WORD IF THEY CAN PULL HIMON ANY FOOTAGE.

AGENT DUNHAM.

HEY, ROD, FOUND THIS OVER THERE.

OH, MY GOD.

EXCUSE ME, GENTLEMEN.

THAT'S MINE.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

(Peter) ALL THE BATTERIES ARE DEAD.

IT'S NOT JUST THE LIGHTS THAT WENT OUT.

THIS IS HER CELL PHONE,BUT THEY'RE ALL DEAD.

ALL THE CELL PHONES,LAPTOPS, MP3 PLAYERS.

THEY'RE ALL COMPLETELYDRAINED OF POWER.

ANY THEORIES,DR.

BISHOP? OH, NO.

EXCEPT MY INITIAL THEORYOF COLLECTIVE HEART FAILUREIS PROBABLY INCORRECT.

I'LL NEEDTO TAKE SOME OF THESE BODIESBACK TO THE LAB.

SIX OR SEVENSHOULD SUFFICE.

WE HAVE AN IMAGEFROM THE PLATFORM CAMERAS.

WHO IS THIS GUY? AND HOW DIDHE KILL EVERYTHING ON THIS TRAIN? (Walter) THIS IS UNUSUAL.

DYING ORGANISMS STRUGGLE FOR THEIR LAST BREATH, BUT THESE PEOPLE APPEAR AS IF THEIR SWITCHESHAVE SIMPLY BEEN TURNED OFF.

HEY, HOW'S IT COMINGIN HERE? HI, PETER.

NOT VERY GOOD.

TAKE SAMPLES OF THIS MAN'SLUNG, BRAIN, AND SKIN.

SOMETHING'S NOT RIGHT HERE.

YUP, I THINKIT'S MY PAYCHECK.

HMM? WHATEVER IT IS,I'M SURE YOU'RE GONNA MAKE SENSEOUT OF IT, WALTER.

WALTER.

WHAT'S GOING ON WITH YOU? IS THERE SOMETHING WRONG?SOMETHING YOU WANNA TALK ABOUT? NO, EVERYTHING'S FINE.

(Walter) ASTRO, SHOW ME THOSE PREVIOUS CELLULAR SAMPLES, PLEASE.

THAT'S EXTRAORDINARY.

THE ATP CONCENTRATIONSARE UNUSUALLY LOW.

CELLULAR PROCESSSHOULD CONTINUE FOR HOURS, EVEN AFTER DEATH,BUT THIS MAN'S MITOCHONDRIA SEEMS TO HAVECEASED FUNCTIONING WELL BEFORE IT SHOULD.

WHAT DO YOU SAY I TAKESAMPLES OF THE REST both: AND SEEIF THERE'S A TREND? (Peter) SO WHAT ARE YOU SAYING, WALTER? THAT SOMETHING WAS ABLETO REACH INSIDE OF THESE PEOPLE'S MITOCHONDRIAAND JUST– DRAIN THEM,LIKE THE BATTERIES IN ALL OF THE ELECTRICALDEVICES ON THE TRAIN.

IT WASN'T JUSTTHEIR HEARTS THAT STOPPED BEATING.

IT WAS EVERY CELLIN THEIR BODIES.

WHAT DO YOU THINK COULD POSSIBLYDO SOMETHING LIKE THAT? I HAVE NO IDEA.

20 YEARS AGOA PERSON WALKING THROUGH BOSTONFOR TWO HOURS SHOWED UP ON AN AVERAGE OF TEN DIFFERENTSURVEILLANCE CAMERAS.

(Broyles) NOW, IT'S HUNDREDS.

BAD FOR PRIVACY,BUT GOOD FOR US.

I'VE ASKED THEM TOOUTPUT EACH SOURCE TO A DIFFERENT MONITOR.

GIVE US A SENSE OF THE ROUTEOUR SUSPECT TOOK.

PLAY IT.

HE EXITS THE TRAIN STATION, CROSSING FERRIS AVE.

, CONTINUING NORTH.

THIS IS FROM THE BANK ON HOWARD STREET.

COMING AROUND THE CORNER.

THERE, HE ENTERS A CAFE.

HE SPENT ALMOST 45 MINUTES INSIDE, THEN LEFT THE ESTABLISHMENT.

THE GUY KILLSA TRAIN FULL OF PEOPLE AND THEN STOPSFOR A MEAL? AND THE TRAIL GOES COLD THERE.

ONCE HE LEFT THE CAFE, WE COULDN'T LOCATE HIM ON ANY OTHER CAMERAS.

BUT WE HAVEA PLACE TO START.

CAFE WILUSA.

YEAH, HE WASHERE THIS MORNING.

HE COMES INALL THE TIME.

WEIRD GUY.

WEIRD HOW? WELL, HE ALWAYSDRAWS ON STUFF, LIKE THE NAPKINSAND THE PLACEMATS.

WELL, WHAT SORT OF STUFFDOES HE DRAW? SOME KIND OFMATH, I THINK.

TO BE HONEST,MY HIGHER MATH ENDS AT CALCULATINGMY TIP, SO.

DOES HE EVER PAYWITH A CREDIT CARD? SOMETIMES HE DOES.

HERE.

THIS IS HIM.

ALISTAIR PECK.

THANK YOU.

THIS WILL REALLY HELP.

SEND THE BISHOPS UP,PLEASE.

THESE MATHEMATICAL FORMULAE ARE EXTRAORDINARILYCOMPLEX.

PHYSICISTS USE DIAGRAMS LIKE THESE TO SHORTHAND IDEASABOUT HOW SUBATOMIC PARTICLES BEHAVE.

THESE ARE SUBLIME.

THIS MAY EXPLAINHIS FLOURISH FOR NUMERICALWALLPAPERING.

ASTROPHYSICS.

HE TEACHES AT M.

I.

T.

IF I COMPREHENDTHIS CORRECTLY, THEN THISALISTAIR PECK HAS TAKEN EINSTEIN'STHEORY OF RELATIVITY AND TURNED ITON ITS EAR.

I GRASPPORTIONS OF IT, TACHYONS AREDEPICTED HERE, BUT I FAIL TO SEE THEIR RELEVANCE.

HOWEVER, IT DOES CONFIRM THAT DR.

PECKWAS DEALING WITH TREMENDOUS ENERGYTO DO.

WHATEVER IT ISHE'S DOING.

WHAT ARE YOU DOINGWITH MY THINGS? (agent) PECK IS HERE, HE'S DOWNSTAIRS.

I GUESS THAT EXPLAINS WHAT ALL THESURGICAL TOOLS WERE FOR.

WHAT DID YOU DO TO THE PEOPLEON THAT TRAIN? 12 INNOCENT PEOPLE.

THOSE PEOPLEAREN'T DEAD, MISS.

NOT PERMANENTLY.

OF COURSETHEY'RE DEAD.

(Peck) BUT THEY SOON WON'T BE.

ALTHOUGH, OTHERS SOONWILL BE, I'M AFRAID.

DR.

PECK,I WANT YOU TO LIE DOWN ON THE GROUND NOW.

(Peck) DON'T TAKE MY COMPUTATIONS.

THEY'RE MEANINGLESS TO YOU.

IT IS WELL WITHIN MY ABILITY TO MAKE IT SO THATYOU ARE NEVER IN POSSESSION OF THETHINGS I REQUIRE.

YOU'VE IMPLANTEDA FARADAY MESH.

(Peter) WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT, WALTER? A SHIELD, TO CREATE A TEMPORALPOCKET AROUND YOUR BODY.

OF COURSE.

(Peter) OF COURSE, WHAT? WHY WOULD HE NEEDA TEMPORAL POCKET? THAT'S FANTASTIC.

DR.

PECK,WHAT ARE YOU DOING? (Olivia) DR.

PECK? WALTER, WHAT'S HAPPENING? SPARE CHANGE? I'M SORRY YOU HAVE TO GOTHROUGH THIS AGAIN.

OH, GOD.

OH, GOD.

[answering machine] LEAVE A MESSAGE.

HEY, WALTER,IT'S PETER.

YOUR SON, PETER.

ALL RIGHT, FINE.

WHEN YOU GET THIS, I WANT YOU TO GET YOUR KIT TOGETHER.

I JUST GOT OFF THE PHONE WITH OLIVIA.

SHE SAID THERE WAS AN INCIDENT ON A TRAIN, AND I KNOW HOW MUCH YOU LOVE TRAINS.

THOUGHT IT MIGHT CHEER YOU UP.

I'M COMING HOMETO PICK YOU UP IN 15 MINUTES, ALL RIGHT? HAVE YOU NOTICEDANYTHING WEIRD? NOT YET, BUT GIVE ITTEN MINUTES.

I WAS ACTUALLYTALKING ABOUT WALTER.

EXCUSE ME.

I'M DR.

WALTER BISHOP.

IS THIS THE CAR? MUST BE THE CAR.

OH, MY.

(agent) AND THERE'S NOTHING ELSE YOU CAN GIVE ME? NO OTHER INFORMATION? HERE'S THEINITIAL REPORT.

YOU THINK THESE PEOPLE DIED FROM HAVING A HEART ATTACKAT THE SAME TIME? (Walter) PERHAPS IT WAS SYMPATHETIC.

CONTAGIOUS, LIKE YAWNING.

WALTER, DOES YOUR THEORYSUGGEST WHY ALL THE LIGHTS WOULD BE OUT IN THIS CAR? NO, THERE SHOULD BEBATTERY BACKUP.

UNLESS IT WASN'TSERVICED PROPERLY.

I'LL NEED TO TAKESOME OF THESE BODIES BACK TO THE LAB.

SIX OR SEVENSHOULD SUFFICE.

AGENT DUNHAM? HE CROSSED PATHSWITH THE SUSPECT AS HE ENTEREDTHE TRAIN CAR.

SAYS THE MAN WASIN A RAINCOAT.

SIX FOOT,BROWN HAIR.

SAYS HE TOUCHED THE HAND RAIL.

WE'RE DUSTING FOR PRINTS.

HI THERE.

UH, THE MANFROM THE TRAIN– DID HE SAYSOMETHING TO YOU? YEAH.

WHAT DID HE SAY? "I'M SORRY YOU HAVETO GO THROUGH THIS AGAIN.

" AGAIN? (Olivia) AND WHAT THEN? HE STEPPED OFF THE STAIRSAND WALKED AWAY.

(Peter) AGENT DUNHAM, AGENT BROYLES.

ALL THE BATTERIESARE DEAD.

ALL THE CELL PHONES,LAPTOPS– THEY'RE COMPLETELYDRAINED OF POWER.

HEY, RON.

LOOK, I FOUND THIS ON THE FLOOR OVER THERE.

OH, MY GOD.

OH, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! THAT-THAT-THAT'S MINE.

HE FOUND ITON THE FLOOR UP THERE.

OH? OH.

THANK YOU.

THE MITOCHONDRIAWERE DEPLETED? YUP, COMPLETELY DRAINED.

THE VICTIMS DIDN'T DIEOF A GROUP HEART ATTACK, THEY WERE JUST COMPLETELYDRAINED OF BIOLOGICAL ENERGY.

JUST LIKETHEIR PHONE BATTERIES.

PRETTY MUCH.

HOW IS THE QUESTION.

WALTER'S STILL WORKING ON IT.

I'LL LET YOU KNOW IF HE FINDS OUT ANYTHING ELSE.

OKAY.

DUNHAM.

WE MANAGED TO I.

D.

THE PRINT WE LIFTED OFF THE TRAIN CAR RAILING.

WE GOT LUCKY.

THEY MATCHED A SETNASA HAS ON FILE.

DR.

ALISTAIR PECK.

WHAT DID HE DO AT NASA? HE WAS CLASSIFIEDAS PART OF A THINK TANK.

WE DON'T KNOW MUCHMORE THAN THAT, YET.

WELL, WE KNOWTHAT HE LIVES HERE.

412 INMAN STREET.

SEND THE BISHOPS UP,PLEASE.

MR.

PECK MAY HAVE DONEPROJECT WORK FOR NASA, BUT HE'SEMPLOYED LOCALLY.

ASTROPHYSICS.

HE TEACHES AT M.

I.

T.

WHAT? WOW,I'M HAVING DEJA VU.

[chuckles] YEAH, I READTHAT DEJA VU IS FATE'S WAY OF TELLING YOUTHAT YOU'RE EXACTLY WHEREYOU'RE SUPPOSED TO BE.

THAT'S WHY YOU FEEL LIKE YOU'VE BEEN THERE BEFORE.

YOU ARE RIGHT IN LINEWITH YOU'RE OWN DESTINY.

WELL, DO YOUBELIEVE THAT? MM.

NO.

IT'S A BIT MYSTICALFOR MY TASTE.

I NEVER GET THEM,MYSELF.

MAYBE THAT'S 'CAUSEI'M NOT ON TRACK WITH MY OWN DESTINY.

(Peter) HUH, LOOK AT THIS.

WHAT IS IT? A PHOTO ALBUM.

OKAY.

BUT WHO ARE YOU? WHAT'S YOUR NAME? HUH.

WELL, ONE OF THEM IS BOUNDTO BE BACK SOONER OR LATER.

HOPEFULLY SOONER.

SHALL WE GO HOME NOW? I'M TIRED OF WAITING.

OLIVIA.

MIGHT I COMEWITH YOU? IN YOUR CAR? I CAN'T DRIVEHOME WITH HIM.

I CAN'T LOOK AT HIM.

WALTER, YOU CAN'TKEEP DOING THIS.

PETER KNOWS THATSOMETHING'S UPSETTING YOU.

I'VE WRITTEN HIMA LETTER.

INSTEAD OF ME STAMMERINGIN FITS AND STARTS, A LETTER IS MORE CONCISE.

IT EXPLAINS EVERYTHINGIN JUST THE RIGHT WORDS.

EXCEPT THAT EVERY TIMEI THINK I'M READY TO TELL HIM, I ENVISION HIS REACTIONWHEN HE READS IT AND I RUN THE SCENEIN MY MIND AGAIN AND AGAIN.

AND EVERY TIME,THE OUTCOME IS TERRIBLE.

BUT I WILL DO IT.

BUT FIRST.

THERE'S SOMETHING I'MWAITING FOR, AGENT DUNHAM– SOMETHING IMPORTANT.

(Peter) HEY, GUYS, CHECK THIS OUT.

TEMPLATES.

FORMS.

(Olivia) WHAT ARE THEY FOR? WELL, THEY'RE WHAT YOU'D USETO CAST MACHINE PARTS, BUT THESE LOOK LIKETHEY WERE HANDMADE.

THIS ONE IS DATEDSEVERAL MONTHS AGO, THIS ONEEVEN EARLIER.

HE REFERS TO THEMAS PROTOTYPES.

BUT PROTOTYPESFOR WHAT? ALISTAIR PECK WAS A PROFESSOR HERE FOR SIX YEARS.

HIS FOCUS–OBSESSION–WAS PARTICLE ACCELERATION.

UM, CREATING WORMHOLESWITHOUT A PARTICLE COLLIDER.

ALL RIGHT, YOU'RE SAYING THAT DR.

PECK'S AREA OF EXPERTISEWAS TIME TRAVEL? HE KEPT CRANKING OUTTHEORIES, AND EVENTUALLY EVERY ONE OF THEMWAS OVER OUR HEADS.

THAT MUST HAVEBEEN FRUSTRATING FOR HIS SUPERIORS.

EMBARRASSING ISA BETTER CLASSIFICATION.

THEY WANTED TO FIRE ALISTAIR BUT HE SAVED THEM THE TROUBLE AND LEFT,ABOUT A YEAR AGO.

IS THIS HIS WIFE? AH, THE FIANCEE.

HER NAME IS ARLETTE.

DO YOU REMEMBERHER LAST NAME? I DON'T RECALL, NO.

(Peter) DO YOU KNOW ANY OTHER FRIENDS HE MIGHT HAVE HAD? PEOPLE HE KNEW? (Carol Bryce) THAT'S THE SAD THING.

HE WAS KINDTO EVERYONE, BUT HE NEVERSOCIALIZED.

I THINK I WASHIS ONLY FRIEND.

WELL, ANYTHING THAT YOU CAN REMEMBER ABOUT MR.

PECK,IT COULD BE IMPORTANT.

ALISTAIR SENT ME THESEABOUT SIX MONTHS AGO TO PROOFREAD.

HE HAD HOPES OFSEEING THEM PUBLISHED.

UH, CAN WE TAKE THEM? THEY'RE ONLYGATHERING DUST HERE.

THEY AREPRETTY DENSE.

MOST WOULD SAYIT'S GOBBLEDEGOOK.

[chuckle]WELL, I HAPPEN TO KNOW SOMEONE WHO'S FLUENTIN GOBBLEDEGOOK.

(Walter) I'M FINISHED.

IN ANOTHER 20 YEARS,WITH THE ASSISTANCE OF SOME OTHERGREAT MINDS, I WILL HAVE ABSORBEDTHIS INFORMATION.

ALISTAIR PECK HAS CONCEIVED OF SOMEEXTRAORDINARY THEORIES AND IS POSSIBLYIMPLEMENTING THEM.

MEANING WHAT? HE MAY WELL BE ABLETO TRAVEL THROUGH TIME.

CONCEIVABLY.

EINSTEIN HIMSELFTHEORIZED THIS.

10:00 A.

M.

11:00 A.

M.

HE SAIDTHAT IF SOMETHING COULD PROPEL AN OBJECTFASTER THAN THE SPEED OF LIGHT, THEN TIME WOULDAPPEAR TO BEND.

WHEN THOSETWO FOLDS CONNECT, A TREMENDOUS AMOUNTOF ENERGY IS REQUIRED TO ABSORB THE JUMP.

FROM ANY POWER SOURCE.

SO THE LAPTOPS,THE PHONES– AND ANYONE WHOWAS NEAR HIM.

YES.

(Peter) THEN WHAT YOU'RE SAYING, WALTER, IS THAT PECK'S MOVING THROUGH TIMEIS WHAT KILLED ALL OF THESE PEOPLEON THE TRAIN.

THAT IS MY THEORY, YES,AND OLIVIA, IF IT IS RIGHT, THEN WE MAY WELL HAVEAPPREHENDED THIS MAN ALREADY.

POSSIBLY SEVERAL TIMES.

I FOUND HIS FIANCEE.

THE CAR IN ONE OF THE PHOTO ALBUM PICTURES IS REGISTERED TO ANARLETTE TURLING.

HER LICENSE INFORMATIONIS COMING THROUGH.

OKAY, THAT'S HER.

FIND OUT WHATEVER YOU CAN.

SHE'S OUR ONLYCONNECTION TO PECK.

(Walter) THIRD VOLUME IS UNFINISHED.

THERE'S A HANDWRITTENSEGMENT AT THE BACK, THEN THE WRITING STOPS.

THE UNFINISHED CHAPTER IS ENTITLED "ACHIEVING THEARLETTE PRINCIPLE.

" WHAT'D YOU JUST SAY? "ACHIEVING THEARLETTE PRINCIPLE.

" (Olivia) I THINK I KNOW WHY PECK IS DOING THIS.

ARLETTE TURLINGWAS KILLED IN A CAR ACCIDENT TEN MONTHS AGO.

ON THE 18TH OF MAY.

WHAT IF ALISTAIR PECKIS GOING BACK TO SAVE HER? GRIEF CAN DRIVE PEOPLETO EXTRAORDINARY LENGTHS.

NOW, CONSIDERING THE AMOUNT OFENERGY THAT WAS DRAWN WHEN HE LANDED AT THE STATIONTHIS MORNING, USING PECK'S OWN THEORIES, I ESTIMATE THAT WE WITNESSEDJUST A 12-HOUR JUMP.

10-MONTH JUMP.

THE RESULTSWOULD BE DEVASTATING.

WELL, HOW MANY CASUALTIES? IT WOULD DEPENDWHERE HE LANDED.

HUNDREDS.

(Astrid) THIS IS WEIRD.

I DID A SEARCHFOR PECK'S CELL PHONE WHEN WE FIRSTI.

D.

'D HIM AS A SUSPECT.

HE DIDN'T HAVE ONE, BUT ARLETTE TURLING'S NUMBER IS STILL ACTIVE.

SOMEONE'S PAYING THE BILL.

NOW, IN THEPAST 24 HOURS, THE PRIMARY CELLTOWER THAT'S BEEN HANDLING THE SIGNALFROM ARLETTE'S CELL PHONE IS A TOWER NEARALBANY STREET.

(Walter) WELL, WHAT'S NEAR ALBANY STREET? M.

I.

T.

WELL, WHAT'S HEDOING AT M.

I.

T.

? THE PROFESSOR SAIDTHAT SHE HADN'T SEEN HIM FOR ALMOST A YEAR.

WELL, WALTER HASA LAB HERE, MAYBE PECKHAS A LAB THERE.

ACCORDING TO THE FILES, THE LAB REGISTERED TO PECKWHEN HE WAS A PROFESSOR HERE WAS LAB 107.

ARE THERE ANY WINDOWSIN THAT LAB? GET YOUR MENON THE ROOFTOPS.

ARE THOSE GUNSREALLY NECESSARY? YOU OKAY? WANT ME TO TAKEYOU BACK HOME? NO, PETER, NO, JUST STAY THERE.

AGENT BROYLES.

AGENT DUNHAM.

IF WE ARE CORRECT, AND, FOR PECK,THIS IS ABOUT BRINGING A DEADLOVED ONE BACK TO LIFE, THEN PECK AND I, WE HAVE SOMETHINGIN COMMON.

LET ME SPEAKTO HIM.

WALTER, I– OF COURSE I KNOWTHAT KILLING HIM IS THE ONLY WAYTO ENSURE THAT HE WON'T JUMP,BUT IF I COULD TALK TO HIM,I THINK I CAN CONVINCE HIMTO STOP THIS.

PLEASE.

LET'S TALKTO BROYLES.

♪ ♪ WAIT.

I AM NOT A THREAT.

I AM AN AMBASSADOR.

I KNOWWHO YOU ARE.

YOU'RE DR.

WALTER BISHOP.

I'VE READ YOU.

NEW FRONTIERS IN GENETIC HYBRIDIZATION.

AND I KNOW THATIF YOU WANTED TO, YOU COULD DISAPPEARFROM HERE IN A SECOND.

PLEASE, TRUST ME.

YOU AND I BOTH KNOWTHERE ARE CERTAIN THINGS WE TAKE FOR GRANTED– THE LAWS OF NATURE FOR EXAMPLE– THAT ARE NOT NECESSARILY BINDING.

THERE ARE PLACESON THIS EARTH WHERE TWO PLUS TWOMOST DEFINITELY DOES NOT EQUAL FOUR.

YOU'VE FIGURED OUTHOW TO BEND TIME.

BUT YOU'RE ONLYINTERESTED IN TRAVELINGTO THE PAST.

YOUR GOAL,YOUR NEXT JUMP IS THE 18TH OF MAY.

SO YOU KNOW.

THE 18TH OF MAY.

YES.

DON'T DO THAT!DON'T STAND THERE! (Walter) THERE ARE SNIPERS OUTSIDE.

STAY AWAY FROM THE WINDOW! I HOPE HE KNOWSWHAT HE'S DOING.

(Peck) WHY ARE YOU HERE? WHAT DO YOU REALLY WANT? MY CALCULATIONS SHOW WHAT YOU MUSTALREADY KNOW.

AN ENORMOUS AMOUNTOF ENERGY WILL BE DRAINED FROM WHEREVER YOU ARRIVE AND A LARGENUMBER OF PEOPLE WILL BE KILLED.

BUT EACH JUMP BACK CLEARS THAT SLATE.

NO.

IF YOU ARE REUNITEDWITH YOUR FIANCEE AND YOU PULL HERFROM THAT CAR, THE VICTIMSOF THIS LAST MASSIVE RESETWILL REMAIN DEAD.

LISTEN.

ON THE DAYOF THE CRASH, WE ARGUED.

ARLETTE WANTED METO GO TO SOME STORE TO REGISTERFOR WEDDING GIFTS, AND I HURTHER FEELINGS AND I LEFT.

AS I WALKED, I BECAMEDRAWN TO SOMETHING ON THE HORIZON.

A LARGE, RED BALL.

IT WASA HOT AIR BALLOON.

MOORED ONTHE CITY'S OUTSKIRTS, OUT IN THIS FIELD.

I SPENT THE WHOLE DAYIN THIS FIELD, LOOKING ATTHIS BALLOON, AND I GOT MY ANSWER.

I HAD AN EPIPHANYOF HOW TO PHYSICALLY APPLY MY THEORIESOF TIME TRAVEL.

I WAS IN THAT FIELDTHE MOMENT HER CAR WAS HIT.

18 MAY, 2:18 P.

M.

IF I'D HAVE SIMPLY DONEWHAT SHE ASKED ME, IF I'D HAVE SAID,"SURE, I'LL GO WITH YOU," I KNOW IT WOULDN'THAVE HAPPENED.

I WILL JUMP BACK.

BUT I'LL JUMP BACK INTO THATEMPTY FIELD, WALTER.

AND I'LL ONLYDRAIN THE ENERGY FROM THE PLANT LIFE.

ENERGY WILL BE DISPERSED,NO ONE WILL DIE, AND I WILL PULL ARLETTEFROM THAT CAR AND I WILLSAVE HER LIFE.

I KNOW WHYYOU HAVEN'T GONE BACK TO MAY 18TH, YET.

BECAUSE YOU DON'TKNOW HOW TO.

YOU HAVEN'T BEEN ABLETO JUMP BACK ANY FURTHER THANTHE TRAIN.

WHAT HAPPENED? SOMEONE GET THATSIGNAL BACK ONLINE! YOU APPROXIMATETHE TIME CURVATURE USING A SEVENTHORDER POLYNOMIAL.

BUT YOU MADEONE SMALL ERROR.

FOR THE DISTANCEYOU REQUIRE, IT SHOULD BEAT LEAST NINE.

I'VE READ YOU TOO.

[radio static] GET A TEAMUP THERE, NOW.

I'M TELLING YOUHOW TO DO THIS, BUT I'M TELLING YOUYOU CANNOT DO IT.

I MUST DO IT.

YOU'LL NEVER BE ABLETO LIVE WITH THE CONSEQUENCES.

I TOLD YOU,NO ONE WILL DIE.

THAT'S NOTTHE CONSEQUENCES I'M TALKING ABOUT.

I, TOO, ATTEMPTEDTHE UNIMAGINABLE, AND I SUCCEEDED.

I CROSSED INTOANOTHER UNIVERSE, AND TOOK A SONTHAT WASN'T MINE.

AND SINCE THEN,NOT A DAY HAS PASSED WITHOUT ME FEELINGTHE BURDEN OF THAT ACT.

I'M GOING TO TELLYOU SOMETHING THAT I HAVE NEVER TOLDANOTHER SOUL.

UNTIL I TOOK MY SONFROM THE OTHER SIDE, I HAD NEVERBELIEVED IN GOD.

BUT IT OCCURRED TO ME.

THAT MY ACTIONSHAD BETRAYED HIM AND THAT EVERYTHING THATHAD HAPPENED TO ME SINCE WAS GOD PUNISHING ME.

SO NOW I'M LOOKING FOR A SIGN OF FORGIVENESS.

I'VE ASKED GODFOR A SIGN OF FORGIVENESS.

A SPECIFIC ONE,A WHITE TULIP.

TULIPS DON'T BLOOM THIS TIME OF YEAR–WHITE OR OTHERWISE.

BUT HE'S GOD.

AND IF GOD CANFORGIVE ME FOR MY ACTS THEN MAYBE.

IT'S IN THE REALMOF POSSIBILITY THAT MY SON, POSSIBLY, MAY BE ABLETO FORGIVE ME TOO.

WALTER,GOD IS SCIENCE.

GOD IS POLIOAND FLU VACCINES AND M.

R.

I.

MACHINES,AND ARTIFICIAL HEARTS.

IF YOU ARE A MAN OF SCIENCE, THEN THAT'S THE ONLYFAITH WE NEED.

THEN ALLOW ME TO SERVEAS A PRECAUTIONARY TALE.

THERE WILL BEREPERCUSSIONS IF YOU PULL ARLETTE FROM THAT CAR.

YOU DON'T KNOW HOW THINGS WILL BE CHANGED BY YOUR ACTIONS, BUT THEY WILL.

IT'S NOT OUR PLACETO ADJUST THE UNIVERSE.

AND YOU WILLNEVER BE ABLE TO LOOK AT HER AGAINWITHOUT KNOWING THAT, JUST LIKE EVERY TIMEI LOOK AT MY SON.

I HAVE TRAVELED THROUGH MADNESSTO FIGURE THIS OUT.

AND YOU WILL TOO.

YOU'RE ASKING METO JUST LEAVE HER THERE.

[loud banging on door] NO, NO, NO!STOP! I'M ALL RIGHT.

STOP!NO, PLEASE! GENTLEMEN, PLEASE! (Walter) DON'T YOU SEE? WE WON'T REMEMBER THIS.

DON'T YOU SEE?WE WON'T REMEMBER ANYTHING.

WE WON'T REMEMBER! (Astrid) THIS IS WEIRD.

I DID A SEARCHFOR PECK'S CELL PHONE WHEN WE FIRST I.

D.

'D HIMAS A SUSPECT.

HE DIDN'T HAVE ONE.

BUT ARLETTE TURLING'S NUMBER IS STILL ACTIVE.

NOW IN THE PAST 24 HOURS,THE PRIMARY CELL TOWER THAT'S BEEN HANDLINGTHE SIGNAL IS A TOWER NEAR.

ALBANY STREET.

[phone ringing] DUNHAM.

ALISTAIR PECKIS BACK AT HIS RESIDENCE.

SIX DEAD, INCLUDING TWOBOSTON P.

D.

OFFICERS.

(Broyles) WE HAVE TO TAKE HIM DOWN BEFORE HE JUMPS AGAIN.

TAKE IT.

[gunfire] I HAVEN'T SEEN YOU LOOKAT THAT LETTER FOR A WHILE.

IT'S BEEN ALMOST A YEARSINCE ALISTAIR DIED.

TODAY'S THE DAYI'M SUPPOSED TO SEND IT.

OPEN IT.

APPARENTLY, ALISTAIR FELTWHATEVER IT IS, HE COULD PUTIN YOUR TRUST.

HE WOULDN'T HAVESEALED IT IF HE WANTED ME TO SEEWHAT'S INSIDE.

WALTER? HEY, I GOT YOU SOMETHING.

FIXED YOUR TURNTABLE.

I'D TELL YOU TO KEEP ITOUT OF THE LAB THIS TIME, BUT I KNOW YOU WON'T.

THANK YOU, PETER.

I THOUGHT MAYBE YOU'D LIKESOME MUSIC TO CHEER YOU UP.

WALTER, I KNOW THATYOU'VE BEEN IN A FUNK FOR THE LASTCOUPLE OF WEEKS.

IF THERE'S SOMETHING YOU WANT TO TALK TO ME ABOUT– NO.

SOMETHING WASWEIGHING ON ME, A DECISION, BUT.

I'M FINE.

OKAY.

I'M GONNA GOHIT THE HAY.
