As usual A.J. you did an incredible job with that episode! I loved that the ep was 2 sided. In other words, there were 2 wrongs to put right; one right after the other. To me, that's part of what makes a really good Quantum Leap episode. Also, thanks for keeping Al's libido alive, let alone QL altogether!

I like this one. The man's ex that Sam is standing in for for the wedding is psycho.

a good episode, it kind of reminded me of the hurricane from the original series. It was well-written and well-thought out from beginning to end.

I thought that it was brilliant, the start made you want to read on and the thought of the mans hand made me cringe. But I liked how you made it so the mans wedding ring helped lead into the more important part of the story

This was another great episode. Personally, I think that this was the first episode that was like the standard Quantum Leap episodes, so it was very refreshing to read. Plus, I like the twist at the end, along with the well-placed humor during Parts Four and Parts Five. Great episode!
