Against her will, Lester's men bring Helen Cutter back from the past to explain what she's been doing and why she chose not to return. Though she manages to escape custody and return to her chosen time, it's the fate of Connor's friends that reminds viewers and team members of the dangers they face on a daily basis. Some further discussion about the direction of Doctor Who and the many changes wrought by showrunner Chris Chibnall.

A tear in the fabric of the space/time continuum allows creatures from Earth's distant past to find their way into the present. A scientific team led by Professor Nick Cutter and assisted by reptile expert Abby Maitland, tracker Stephen Hart, Home Office representative Claudia Brown, and graduate student Connor Temple investigate these dinosaurs and try to prevent them from wreaking havoc on unsuspecting individuals. However, the most intriguing element centers on the fact that the anomaly allows individuals to travel back to Earth's past. We also give our thoughts on the new Doctor Who featuring Jodie Whitakker.

We return to complete the discussion of the season finale of the German Netflix series Dark. Perhaps the most intriguing questions center around the identity of Future Girl and her compatriots, and whether or not Noah and Bartosz are one and the same. Krista and Fred bring up some great points in Listener Feedback, and now the urge to resist season two spoilers is being challenged.

Though much still remains unexplained, the pieces to the time travel puzzle in Winden begin falling into place. A young Alexander defends his future wife as she's terrorized by Ulrich and Katharina, but leaves himself open to Hannah's extortion thirty three years later. Though there are a number of bombshells dropped in the episode, none resonate more than the appearance of an older Claudia.

While the Nielsen family struggles to cope with Mikkel's disappearance, Ulrich's dogged search for the truth reveals a stunning result. Armed with the map left by his father and items sent to him by The Stranger, Jonas enters the cave and finds himself in 1986 coming face to face with his mother as a teenager. As the mysteries continue to unfold, Tronte and Peter are clearly up to something related to the cave and its time portals.
