The Living and The Dead: Dimensions of Time and Space, and a Stunner ending/beginning.
What can I say? I was left gobsmacked … not an American expression, but the only one I can think of that describes where the last scene of the last episode left me.. It’s difficult to express; it’s even more difficult to wrap one’s head around all the strings that bound this story together. And it’s more than an assault on our logic; it’s the disintegration of logic as we currently know it, the assumptions our minds make given the (only) information that has been revealed to us at any given point. Information that deliberately leads us in conflicting directions … which is exactly the story-teller’s intention.
We here do not view this “assault on our logic” as a criticism, it is a good and valuable attempt to broaden our thinking, to seek out other possibilities, and learn more. So when it is stated (as a fact) that the car could not have been there, it may be time to revisit another point of view. Part of Nathan’s dilemma was the abrupt challenge to existing science of his time, and his struggle to accept other possibilities as real. There were other clues as to his descent into madness, but it appears this intense conflict contributed significantly.
Of course, we will be revisiting time and again. The first viewing is not enough.
