Winterland Season 1, Episode 8

A new episode of Journeyman provided us with the answers to some of the lingering questions we've had since Day 1. Not only did we see the return of Professor Langley, but even Livia opened up and started talking. It all began with a trip back to the 1970s. In the past, Dan found himself at a key party with Livia. As he mingled with the party guests and Nixon's "I am not a crook" speech played on the television, a young girl showed up looking for her parents. Poor Abigail Armstrong walked into her parents' bedroom and found her mother having sex with a man who wasn't her father. Shocked and disgusted, she fled her home never to be seen again. Back in the present, Dan finally showed up for his dinner with Katie. She's not fully supportive of her husband's journeys, and as she put it, things were finally starting to seem normal. The next day, Jack continued to discuss the Dylan McCleen cash with the feds while Dan researched Abigail's whereabouts in present day. It turns out she was last seen hitchhiking in 1973. While doing his research, an FBI agent showed up to interrogate Dan about the Dylan McCleen hijacking. It seemed his past finally caught up with him when the agent tried to show a connection between his interest in the McCleen hijacking and Dan's own disappearance from the 747 a few weeks back. When Dan returned home from a rough day at the office, he immediately went to get rid of the McCleen cash when Dr. Langley called to have a meeting. Langley seemed to believe the feds may know more than they put on about Dan's situation and warned him not to reveal anything about his traveling. Dan disappears to the '70s as Langley turns to walk away. When he looks back and sees Dan is nowhere to be found, he doesn't look the least bit surprised. He's back and finds himself on the beach along the highway; the same spot Abigail Armstrong was last seen hitchhiking before she vanished. Dan approaches Abby and prevents her from taking a ride with a stranger in a green pickup truck and instead sends her off in a VW bus with a group of hippies. In 2007 Dan comes home to find his brother waiting to discuss the stolen money, but Dan refused to hear him out and kicked him out of the house. The next morning, the feds show up to search Dan and Katie's home for evidence. In the mess they create, Katie starts rummaging though a box of stuff that belonged to Livia before she disappeared, including an old photograph. Meanwhile, Dan once again finds himself in the 1970s, at a diner with Livia sitting at a table across from the group of hippies he sent Abby off with. Realizing his mission with Abby is still not finished, he tries to persuade her not to continue tagging along with the group. She refuses. In present day, Dan checks in on Abby and discovers his attempt to prevent her disappearance instead set her on a path that led her to a life sentence in prison. Katie shows up to show Dan the photograph of Livia. At the police station, the federal agent discusses the evidence with Jack. He starts the wheels in motion for Jack to discover Dan's secret. The agent believes there's a link between the marked bills from the McCleen case and a $20 bill from the future that Jack turned in as evidence in a case from 1994 (when Dan paid a cab driver with a seemingly counterfeit bill and was chased down by his brother.) In a final trip back to the '70s, Dan and Livia turn up in a liquor store where Abby and her friends are trying to pull off a robbery. As the two try to convince Abby to back out before it's too late, Dan confronts Livia about the picture Katie found. Here's the big reveal: Livia's actual life took place during the 1940s and her traveling all takes place in the future. Her relationship with Dan was never meant to be, but when they crossed paths, she had an extended stay in Dan's present until the day she vanished from the aircraft. Before Livia could reveal anything else, they had to set things right for Abigail Armstrong. Dan uses the McCleen money in an attempt to stop the robbery. When that fails, he convinces her that following her boyfriend's orders made her no different from her mother's relationship to her father and she flees the scene just before her friends are gunned down. Dan returns to 2007 and learns that Abby went on to become a successful politician. He and Katie discuss Livia's revelation as Jack sits in a bar contemplating the odd circumstances surrounding his brother's case. This was another great episode of Journeyman. We finally learned about Livia's journeys and it looks like Jack may soon begin to understand Dan's situation. As we learn more and more, I'm becoming convinced that Dr. Langley is no good. He seemed to have a pretty devilish look on his face when he realized Dan left on another trip. I'm also coming around to Katie. She was completely calm when the feds tore through her home and she's not nearly as concerned about Dan seeing Livia as I would expect her to be. Overall, with two great episodes in a row, this show is definitely on an upswing. With next week being Part 1 of a two-parter, I'm hoping this streak continues. show less
