    OK episode.

    The new boss is still boilerplate and lame.

    Haven't really been digging Alexis this season either.

    I have a question about the resolution in this episode. The wife kills herself so she has to go in storage with her husband. At the end everyone is all "oh maybe they'll be together again some day". What about statute of limitations. It never runs out on murder. If they wake her up someday shouldn't she immediately be charged with murder? Or not since if her husband is revived too?

    Thoughts? :D

    I was thinking the same thing "oh, what classes should I take...", but once she got that letter then everything changed. She's not the cute little Alexis from the last couple years, and now there's some conflict for the character to deal with. I just hope they don't cop-out and keep the sub-plot interesting.

    The wife was not very smart. She should have made it look like a suicide. Given he was dying, a suicide would be more likely for the cops to not investigate carefully. She could have even taken his phone and sent a text message to the cryolab that they should come and get his body (making it look like he sent it just before he killed himself).

    If the husband is revived too, then she can't be charged with murder.

    Technically, she could be charged with attempted murder (let's say you shoot to kill a guy asleep in a chair who unbeknownst to you had already died of a heart attack; you're guilty of attempted murder), but a good lawyer could probably get her a not guilty on the grounds that she did not have the criminal intention to murder her husband since she was expecting that he would eventually be revived.

    You couldn't argue that today because the expectation is not reasonable, but if they're revived in the future then the expectation will have been proven to be reasonable. :)

    I don't know...if you take someone who's sick but alive and quick freeze them (while they're still alive), I could maybe see how people could hope that they could be unfrozen and cured in the future...

    ...but not if you've been dead for at least 15 minutes like the couple in this story...

    I'm sure in the future, they'll come up with a reliable cure for cyanide. :D

    They'll just get the Dr. from Terra Nova to play with some 3D holograms for a few minutes and come up with the cure.

    Geez, haven't you been watching Fringe? They can talk to a dead guy's brains hours, if not days later. :rolleyes:

    Hey, at least I didn't put an apostrophe in the pluralization. Like some guy's do.
