"Keepers" Season 1, Episode 6

At the end of last week's Journeyman, we were left with tons of questions. (Doesn't that always seem to be the case?) Is Dr. Langley good or bad? Why did he know Dan's father so well? What happens now that Dan's son has witnessed his father's disappearing act? Does Dan really think he could use Dylan Mcleen's money without any repercussions? And is a Jack and Katie reunion starting to blossom? Judging by the previews for this week's show, it seemed that the episode would explore Dan and Jack's relationship as Dan comes into contact with himself as a teenager. Let's see how it played out. The year was 1986 and A-Ha's "Take on Me" was playing on the radio in what appeared to be a mechanic's garage. Dan heard a young boy fighting with someone and went to investigate the argument. The boy is yelling some craziness about rocket-fuel ratio causing an explosion and Dan tries to help the boy's brother, who is trying to set a rocket off on a fire escape. In present day, Katie tells Zack (her and Dan's son) that he must keep his father's secret about the money and his disappearances. When Dan returns, the husband and wife discuss their options for the stolen money. Dan then goes to research his latest case. On another trip back to the '80s, Dan prevents his latest case (the two brothers Michael and Steven) from stealing a car. As he continues to roam around, he runs into Lyvia, and they discuss the status of his most recent mission, but are distracted by two boys leaving a pizza parlor. It's Jack and Dan as teenagers! Back in 2007, Dan and Katie discuss their recent financial predicament. The bank has put a hold on all of their credit cards and someone is monitoring their transactions. When Dan returns to work again, his boss grills him on his latest story, wanting to know why he had any business with Dr. Langley and if it had anything to do with a series of bombings that occurred years earlier by a group calling themselves the Global Freedom Now Group 0. This group at one time threatened Langley and Dan recalls seeing their initials on the garage back in '86. While getting an update from Michael on how his life played out, Dan learns that Steven is MIA. He asks about the initials GFNG0 and learns it was an acronym for something their dad used to call them. Bingo! Then Dan finds himself in the year 2000 when Third Eye Blind had their hit "Never Let You Go." With some assistance from Lyvia, Dan steals his brother's car and sets off to prevent a bombing at the petroleum plant. He prevents anyone from being injured in the explosion and brought the two brothers back together. The interesting twist came when Steven (the überintelligent but deranged brother) figures out Dan's secret. Also, upon returning his brother's car, Dan eavesdrops on a conversation between Jack and Katie, in which Katie tells Jack she and Dan are getting married and she's pregnant. But she isn't totally convinced she loves him. In present day, Dan returns home to find Katie and Jack together. He and his brother try to make peace once again. Back at the office, Dan gets an update from Steven, who is now convinced that time travel is not possible. Looks like his secret is still safe. Once again, I didn't love this episode. I saw the obvious parallels between the Steven-Michael relationship and the Dan-Jack relationship - it didn't really take a rocket scientist to get that one! And again, Lyvia proved herself utterly useless with the exception of her offering of a hair pin. She couldn't even help Dan figure out what year it was. I was really hoping we'd learn more about Dr. Langley. Dan's interaction with his past self was built up in the commercials and ended up being a major letdown. However, next week's mission, in which Dan must protect his past self, looks like it has a lot of potential. I'm still really iffy on this show, though. It seems to be very hit-or-miss with no in-between. show less
