Perfidia Season 1, Episode 13

Well friends, it looks like the journey has come to an end. In what seemed to be Journeyman's final episode, Dan came into contact with a fellow traveler while in present day Jack went off to confront Dr. Langley and Katie's sister tried to convince her to leave Dan. But did it give us the closure we were looking for? At the start of the episode Dan found himself in the courtyard of a mental hospital where he met Evan, a patient claiming to be another traveler who's medication prevented him from jumping again. As Dan learned more about Evan's experiences and his lost love, he began to see a bit of himself in the stories he was hearing and he agreed to help Evan escape. After instigating a fight with another patient, Dan disappeared back to his own time while Evan made a break for it. Dan returned home to discover he had been gone for almost two days. His extended absence (not to mention the random blood trails he tends to leave) was starting to get to Katie who has been trying so hard to be accepting of her husband's situation. But with an intrusive sister whispering in her ear to leave and the knowledge that Jack is about to settle down and have a normal family life of his own, it was hard for her not to question her own marriage regardless of her feelings for Dan. These are just the prices you pay when your the time travelers wife I guess. Nevertheless, before he could deal with his marital woes Dan needed to figure out his latest mission if he ever wanted some answers. Upon researching Evan's current status however, he learned that after escaping the hospital Evan was hit by a car and died. During his second trip back, Dan met up with Livia who was called away from her wedding preparations to help with the mission. As Dan filled her in on the details of the third traveler, he spotted the woman Evan claimed to have been involved with and Evan trying to work up the courage to confront her. With some coaching from Dan and Livia, Evan finally approached his girl but she claimed to have no idea who he was. Back in present day, Jack was waiting to confront Dr. Langley about the picture of him and Dan as a child. Dr. Langley denied having any memory of the encounter but our man Jack was not giving up that easy. He decided to sit in on one of Dr. Langley's lectures in an attempt to get him to discuss time travel. Dan resurfaces at home where Katie (following advice from her sister to move out of the house) was waiting to finally confront Dan about how his random journeys are affecting their family. Later at his office, Dan learned that Evan was still dead (he was killed trying to break into the home of the woman he was once married to.) On his last trip back, Dan had one more chance to figure out if Evan was actually a fellow journeyman or just a nutjob with an obsession for an unattainable love. When Dan and Livia caught up to Evan, he claimed to have proof that he and the senator's wife had actually been involved. It was a videotape of the two dancing in a salsa contest. Evan also explained the reason for his wife's memory loss. Apparently when he was traveling, he had an experience much like Dan's own encounter with Aeden Benett that led to his wife being killed. In his various attempts to save her, the result was always the same and so he just made it so they had never met. Dan and Livia help Evan get another shot to win over his wife. Just as things were looking up for Evan and he got his wife to fall for him again, he dropped dead on the dance floor. Mission accomplished? Ehh, sorta. When Dan and Livia left it was time to address their unresolved tension now that she was about to get married in her real life and both got the feeling their time together was dwindling. As they were about to share one last kiss, Dan's double from that time ran past and Dan realized it was the exact day he first traveled back. He and Livia watched Double-Dan disappear from the backseat of a cab and it became clear that Evan's death is what triggered Dan's journeys. Once again in present day, Katie finally told her sister to butt out and let her and Dan's family drama stay within their family. Though its definitely understandable that they're concerned, it seems like every outsider of the Vasser immediate family exists just to try to bring an end to Dan and Katie's marriage. We then see Dan reading Evan's travel log. As he got on the elevator to leave work, Dr. Langley was waiting for him. The moment we've all been waiting for! Dr. Langley finally opened up about the mysteries of traveling. Though he offered no real explanation aside from it being a scientific anomaly, Dr. Langley did reveal that there are others out there with the same ability, groups of people looking to control someone who has it, and that Dan is the last living person with the ability to travel. Dan suggested he knew of one other (Livia) but he wouldn't give up the person's identity. Back at home, he and Katie discussed the possibility that Dan start taking the sedatives that seem to stop the journeys. Dan explained that although there is much risk involved, the journeys give him the chance to make a difference but that he loves Katie and always wants to come home to her. Katie drifted off to sleep but just as Dan was about to travel once again he woke her up to witness his jump for the very first time. In the end, this episode would have made for a great season finale but it looks as though it will be the end to the entire series. Though we were given answers to a decent amount of our questions, it seems now more than ever there are so many places for this show to go. It would have been nice to have Dan and Livia's tension finally done with and have them separated for a change. My biggest issue with the show was always the Jack/Katie/Dan/Livia craziness. It was too much unnecessary drama and this episode seemed to finally resolve most of that. Regarding the Dr. Langley revelations, I was hoping for more. We realized last week when it was revealed that they were born during the same mystical phenomenon that Dan and Livia weren't the only ones. The interesting thing was that Dan was the last one left. I guess that means little Zack has no shot at getting in on his dad's journeys. Overall, I'm happy that this show was able to go out with some sort of a finale. So many shows on the air these days never get the chance to deliver the finale that its millions of fans waited for. I'm sure there are many of you out there who are still upset by the shows cancellation but at least we got something! But Who knows? Maybe we could get a tv movie? I think millions of boxes of the San Francisco treat have to get us a little bit more. Lastly, thank you to everyone for continuing to check out the blog! It's been a bumpy ride with this show but in the end, the suits won the battle. But hey...at least we got Jericho back. show less
