The fight btw Olivia and her dh (sorry, bad w/names) wasn't very believable to me. There didn't seem to be enough of a build up. Plus, it seems like she gave up too easily. It would have seemed more real if they were in a really heated argument (cause you are more likely to break up when really hurt or angry right?) or if there was some more back and forth w/the trust issue.
DH and I thought that was a really weird look from her boss.

Totally agree about the fight. Seemed like all of a sudden Olivia was willing to ditch her marriage.

I've read the book. I don't watch tv, and only clicked on this, because I was wondering if it had anything to do with the book. However, after trying five Sawyer books, I don't think I'll be reading any more of them. (He's got some really great ideas and story concepts, but his I AM CANADIAN!! vibe gets on my last nerve, and I find there's always something in this books that just doesn't gel for me.) I didn't find Flash Forward all that memorable, tbh...doubt if I'd remember any deviations at all, even if I did watch the show.

I am glad to know it's based on the book, though. While it's not a favourite of mine, I always like to see SF ideas attracting attention.

idk, remember in someones flash forward (i forget who at the moment) she said she had a son she had never met before and they were calling her mommy or whatever, she was tucking him in bed. i bet that was one of celias sons.

and do you think because he killed himself he instantly altered the present too? is that why tracy appeared?

Last night was such a great episode. It seems like this show is getting better every wk.

So by the one agent killing himself he opened up the whole possiblility of changing the future. The whole world had been grappling w/the question of if it was even possible to change what they saw. I guess it seems it is possible. But what are the potential ramifications I wonder?

And, how in the heck did the AA sponsor's daughter get there? He just comes home and she's there? Can't wait to find out what that's all about next wk. Talk about a surprise.

That was Stan's wife and I'm pretty sure the kid wasn't one of the Celia's twins...
Interesting episode though!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now that the future can be altered, I'm curious how everything will play out.

I do have something to say, they all know that it will be April 29th, 10pm - would they just prepare themselves for that day weeks in advance. For instance, in my flash forward, I'm in Miami Beach and something bad happens, wouldn't I just NOT book the tickets to fly to Miami for that day, book the tickets to Alaska instead or something?

Yes, I don't understand why its so hard to change. Demetri is suppose to get killed on the job so can't he just stay home that day?

No, the lady who called him said he was murdered with three shots to the chest. She didn't say he was on the job.

But this totally changes the whole show with Al killing himself. Now they know the future can be changed. Its not written in stone. I think that at first it was written but once people start changing things the future will change more and more. By the time we get to April 29th a whole different future will happen than what they saw.

She saw the boy at the memorial service for the agents killed during the blackout. There was only the one little boy there so I don't think they're the same kids.

This was quite an interesting episode, really makes you think. So many questions! Was that really Tracy at the dining room table or does he have another daughter we haven't heard about. Does he have a daughter he's never met? I was surprised that Al was able to kill himself. I didn't think it would work, even though logically I knew it would be pretty much impossible to survive a fall like that. I was very shocked that he did indeed die.

I know -- I wondered about a twin daughter, too. I didn't think Al would actually die ... I was shocked but my DH thought that he might fall on Celia and kill her anyway and he would live. Sort of sick...

Evidence? He stepped off a building. They didn't show a close-up of his body (It is a prime-time show after all) but they did show an wide ariel view of his body down on the pavement. I doubt that his body was switched in between the time that Mark, Stan, and Demitri saw him step off and the time they rushed to the side of the edge to view his corpse down on the sidewalk. Then the coroner was loading his body when Demetri and Stan were watching. I'm pretty sure he's dead.

On a different topic, Who do you think Annabelle is? I wonder if that's the girl that Simon had sex with on the train. Simon told Lloyd in the car that the train on the coast was "breathtaking". Then a clip was shown of his FF. But I wonder if he strangled the woman on the train too.

Ok so I guess Al is dead after all.

I thought about the tatoo thing and that it could be a symbol for some larger group which looks like what it is, now.

Any thoughts on last night?

You guys think maybe Simon is the one who tries to drown Nicole? We only saw a couple seconds of each of their FFs but Simon and the guy he killed were both soaking wet. And we saw a blurry image of Nicole's FF in this episode that kind of looked like Simon.

Nah, In his FF you can definitely see that it's a guy (in Simon's FF)

Yeah, that's what I meant. Like maybe he kills more than one person in his FF. First he drowns Nicole and then, soaking wet, he goes and kills meat locker guy.

I just rewatched this episode and the moment where Lloyd puts the card in Simon's pocket is unintentionally funny. Simon's face looks just like the Grinch.

Also, I've noticed in the last couple episodes that right after the title shot where it has the flashforward logo it shows a glimpse of something in this episode. I don't remember before last week but last week it showed the bullet labeled "Not today" and this week it showed the ace of hearts that Lloyd put in Simon's pocket. I'll be paying closer attention to it next week.

Kind of a slow episode. So Bryce meets his girl in a sushi bar in LA and he has terminal cancer.

I didn't really think that either Aaron or Stan sent Olivia the text. But because he shouted it in that bar to Stan, there are any number of people that could have heard him say "I was loaded! Okay!"

I agree that more than 2 people probably know. Also, did Demetri and the other guy know from that bar incident?
