Lots of small clues in this episode. Too bad this will probably be the last.

Its seeming more and more evident that this entire show questions (at its core) the implications of faith and trust on its characters.

Anyone else think that Monad seems to be referring to the end of the world?

Definitely still no real answers. Watch the video. Watch the video and learn what from it?

As soon as they said "the Chinaman" I thought "Wu!"

My gleam:
JFC is the advance guard of some group of somethings who will arrive on 9-11-14. I'm thinking aliens. Maybe everyone else knew this but sometimes I'm a bit slow on the inferences.

I like how they just glossed over the doctor suddenly being 20 years younger.

I can't figure out what is going on with the terrorism references. It seems like the indication is a world war that destroys the world on 9/11/14 but that seems kind of cliched and 24-esque to me.

They may have overdone the hawaiian accent a bit, but I still liked the scene with Wu.

I still understand little, but I enjoyed the ride. Early word is JFC is not being renewed, so I guess we'll have to fill in the blanks ourselves.

The look on Dickstein's face was worth the entire season. :up:

I thought this episode was a huge letdown. They promised answers and gave us nothing more than more of the same nonsense.

I thought as it ended, I was just missing something, and realize that was it.

Too bad, the show started cool and went nowhere.

When did [the doctor] appear [20 years younger]? I completely missed that.[/url]
John's voice-over said something like "Dr. Smith comes back from Cincinnati 20 years younger" while they show a long-haired kid skateboarding.

There was another Deadwood alumnus on this show as well who we hadn't seen before. Peter Jason, the guy who played the used car salesman (but who is clearly an important character in the future if this show stays alive), also played Con Stapleton on Deadwood, one of the bumbling managers at Cy Tolliver's saloon/casino.

Based on other comments from JFC, I'm not convinced the skinny long-haired kid was Dr. Smith. I can't remember the order, but just before or after JFC mentioned Dr. Smith, he also said, "Cissy Yost gets knocked up and becomes bigger than Leona Helmsley".

It sounded to me like John was talking about future events. If he wasn't, and that was Dr. Smith, then Cissy should have been pregnant and "bigger than Leona", whatever that means ...

---

For the record, I was disappointed in the finale. I don't understand how Linc left Stinkweed and signed Shawn on his own, but then suddenly Link can get Stinkweed to represent/front the entire Yost family. I don't understand why Mitch can levitate. I don't understand why Cass/Kai are mentioned as "one". I don't understand 9-11-14 and what that has to do with the Porn Queen's room number.

I ... guess I ... just .... don't ... get ... it. :(
