"Year of the Rabbit" Season 1, Episode 4

A new episode of Journeyman set things in motion this week by bringing us right into Dan's latest trip. With the Spin Doctors playing in the background, we could only assume it is some time in the early '90s. Dan makes his way into a bar to find a younger version of his wife reporting the news on TV. He learns the year is actually 1994 before getting interrupted by a woman sitting at the bar who is waiting for a blind date. Just as the two get acquainted, the woman's angry ex busts into the bar and attacks Dan. Thus begins another mission for the Journeyman. In 2007, Katie is preparing for a benefit that she desperately hopes her husband will be around to attend. Their marriage has been on the rocks since the start of these adventures and has only worsened when she discovered that Dan has been seeing Lyvia on his trips back in time. Though she's starting to come around with the whole time-traveling thing, she can't help but feel jealous that Dan has been in contact with his first love. When he vanishes once again, she turns to his brother (and her ex) Jack to get her to the benefit on time. As Dan continues to trek back to the '90s, his mission starts to become clear. The woman he had met at the bar in 1994 is now engaged to her blind date and is being stalked by the same creepy ex who beat up Dan during their first encounter. After doing some research in present day, Dan learns the woman was murdered and her ex was arrested for the crime. However, all is not what it seems. In a trip back to 1998, Dan sees the same woman get a gun pulled on her by her fiancé, who seems to be after a disk she has. Dan prevents the woman from being shot and as they escape together, he returns to present day, a few hours late to his wife's benefit, looking bloody and disheveled. At the party, he's confronted by his brother, who is still in the dark about what Dan's been going through. Cue another trip back to 1998. Dan frantically tries to reach the woman he's been sent to save. He watches Lyvia interact with past Katie in an attempt to distract her from seeing Dan. Dan and Lyvia chat again. (I missed what they said due to a test with the emergency broadcast system... can someone fill me in?) Dan catches up with his mission's stalker ex and enlists his help to save her from her new man. They arrive just in time to watch her shoot her fiancé. Dan uses the gun he had taken from the past earlier and plants it in the hands of the victim. He finds himself back at his wife's benefit, just in time to make things right for this week. I was completely baffled with the turn the show took in this episode. In each of the previous episodes we learned that Dan's missions all went on to do important things for humanity. In this episode, the woman was involved in a project with online stocks. They spent no time explaining exactly how this helps in present day, as we were not given any kind of update with what the woman currently does in 2007. I have to say, this is probably the worst of the episodes so far. We had more of Lyvia being the jealous ex and a much less interesting mission than usual. The only engaging plot point was Dan looking into the phenomenon of particles moving faster than the speed of light. He was put in contact with a scientist who was somehow able to call him while he was in the past. Hopefully this little twist will add that certain something that seems to be missing from the show. show less
