Dan helps prevent the Uni-Bomber from becoming a serial killer. Decent enough background plot.

We now have too explain things to young Zack. We don't tell people that daddy can go invisible and we don't play with DB Coopers cash.

Jack starts an investigation into his brothers banking habits - still convinced that Dan is back to his old gambling ways. Katie and Jack's personal past begins to re-manifest itself to everyone except Jack & Katie.

Things to watch for in this episode: We get to see a young Jack and Dan. We get another piece of the time puzzle and some tiny info on Mr. Langley.

Not as riveting an episode episode on either plot line stories. But - having said that - a need to know episode more for its backstory and relationships. Plus, we can now begin to see the threads of the developing web.

6!

What interested me about this is seeing how the relationship between the two brothers Dan helps mirrors that of Dan's with his brother Jack, finally realizing Jack only does what he does because he cares and is looking out for Dan. I like the ironic twist of the bomber brother later thinking he was crazy and not realizing he was actually on to something about time travel and tachyons in the past and even used to write to Langley. He probably opted to not research any further for fear of people thinking he was mentally ill. A nice story about family. Now young Zack knows Dan's secret that his dad disappears and is magic and has to keep it a secret, along with the money hidden in the closet. Also nice that Dan starts using "Dylan's" money right away, a little in the present, but mostly the past. You can tell Dan and Katie want so bad to let Jack in on the secret, but still aren't quite ready yet and a good progression of his budding relationship with Theresa. Not much to the A story, but a lot more details filled into Dan's story, the B stories of these episodes. 8.
