"Double Down" Season 1, Episode 7

Another Monday night, another Journeyman. In recent weeks, the story has been moving along quite smoothly with exception to Lyvia. Can't she get killed off already? Dan knows his deal each week now. What purpose does she serve aside from unnecessary drama in his life? Anyhow, I'm getting away from the point. Now that the cat is out of the bag with his son, and his brother has laid off his investigation, perhaps Dan could find a bit of stability in his chaotic life. If only he could figure out a way to control his trips, then it'd be just another job for him. However, if there's one thing we've learned about this show, it's that things will never be that easy for him. During a game of Monopoly, Dan's son spilled the beans about Daddy's hidden cash stash, which sent Jack into investigation mode yet again. He collected some of the bills and brought them down to his buddy at the station, who was surprised at how new the bills from the '70s appeared to be. Meanwhile, as Katie prepares to go back to work as a reporter, she and Dan need to discuss who will take care of their son. Could Katie have picked a worse time to go back to work? At least wait for Dan to be able to control his trips! As the two discussed their options, Dan disappeared to 2000 in the back of a man's car. Upon discovering Dan in the backseat, the man freaked out and kicked Dan out. Dan exited just in time to see a couple of gang members about to attack the driver. He prevented the attack from being fatal but lost his id in the process. Apparently the man was a lawyer prosecuting fellow members of the gang who shot at him. With the knowledge of where he lives, Dan's new mission was to protect himself. Thanks, Lyvia (or should I just call her Captain Obvious?). In 2007 Jack passed off Dan's cash to the FBI, who informed him they were related to the Dylan Mcleen case from 1975. Back in 2000, Dan and Lyvia staked out Dan's apartment and watched Dan's past self sneak away after telling past Katie he was exhausted. They tracked past Dan to an underground gambling spot. Unfortunately, past Dan was also being tracked by the gang members from earlier. In an attempt to save himself, Dan picked a fight with his past self. After a brief but intense fight in which Dan did not reveal his face to past Dan, Lyvia finally busted in and saved the day. Maybe she does have a purpose after all! When they bring past Dan back to his apartment, Dan recalls that the night of the poker game was the night he and Katie fell in love. She went and dragged him out of the game and the rest was history. By interfering and taking past Dan home early, Dan was risking his family's entire existence and so his mission became clear once again. As Dan and Lyvia plot their next move, for the first time in the series we watched Lyvia jump. She found herself in Dan's home in present day trying to keep Dan's present life in check while Dan tried to find money to buy his way into the poker game to make sure he and Katie fall in love. Lyvia grabbed Dylan Mcleen's cash and brought it back to Dan in 2000, thus allowing him to buy his way into the underground poker game. Mission accomplished! The episode ended with a confrontation between the FBI agent and Jack wherein Jack admitted to getting the marked cash from his brother. I must admit, this was the best episode of this show so far. I was glad to finally see how Dan and Katie got together and that Lyvia even had a hand in it. It was nice to see that although Lyvia and Dan have many unresolved issues, she stepped aside and let the future play out the way it was supposed to. Though most of you disagree, I still can't stand Jack. He wouldn't let his brother and Katie work out their own issues and now he's gotten them into an even bigger issue. I get it, he's a concerned relative who's also concerned for the well-being of his nephew, but come on! The dude's gotta have a little family loyalty, I don't care what he does for a living. He should have sought an explanation before ratting Dan out to the FBI. That's all for this week. Next week, the doctor returns to hopefully shed some more light on Dan's journeys. show less
