Default Silly Question Here!

Sorry for the silly question people.....

In Mirror Image, Stawpah had passed away, but still had the ability to leap.

Now that taking place, was Sam or who ever was controlling his leaps able to change time to bring back to life who was already deceased?

I know this is an odd or silly question.

But an example being, Sam's father. He had passed away if I remember correctly.

Does anyone think that a leap could ever have been used to bring back someone? Yes for personal use a leap may not have been allowed if I remember right? Until Mirror Image when Sam told Al's wife he was still alive.

Yes silly question but my mind being a wandering one has just got to ask....

Hope I make sense here.

Have you actually seen the series? How many times did Sam change history and prevent people from dying?

Watch the series in total, new leaper . A staple of the show was his prevention of death. Deaths that occurred in the "original (unaltered) history"

IE his brother, Tom Beckett, who died in Vietnam.

The list goes on and on. Check the ep guide here on the site

Angvee isn't a new Leaper. I think the question is less about preventing death and more about bringing back someone who has already died.

Angvee, are you meaning to ask if one could Leap a person who's about to die or has died? Pull them from the "ether" back to Earth?

Tina has hit the nail on the head. Thank you and ditto!

My line of questioning will always be a little left from center so I am bound to ask something that will make no sense.

Once again, sorry all.

Hmmm. I don't remember anything about "Strange Fruit" on QL. The only TV show with that song and a girl that I remember seeing when I was younger was the Touched By An Angel episode "God Bless the Child," which was an historically-based ep about Billie Holiday.

Of course, it's been, I admit, a while since I've watched any Quantum Leap, so *shrugs*. My memory may be failing me.
