Quantum Leap Episode 6 Review
Ben Song’s next jump takes him to San Francisco in the year 1989. Today is the day of the horrible earthquake that killed a lot of people. This time, Ben meets a man named John who is about to end his marriage. Naomi, his wife, wants a divorce. As they talk about what will happen next, an earthquake hits. Ben quickly figures out that he is there to save Jason, who is John and Naomi’s son.
Jason went back to where his parents used to live when he found out that they were getting a divorce. Jason died when that building fell on him during the earthquake. Ben feels hurt when he finds out that Jason and Naomi aren’t getting along. As his memories come back to him, he thinks about how their relationship was similar to the one he had with his own mother. He feels bad that he didn’t spend much time with his mother when she was still alive, and he doesn’t want Jason to feel the same way. He will do anything to make things better between himself and Naomi.
When Jenn, Magic, and Ian get back home, they find out who the other time traveler, Leaper X, is. It turns out to be a marine named Richard Martinez, but nothing about him makes me think he has anything to do with traveling through time. At the end of episode 6 of Quantum Leap, does Ben try to go to the future?
Ben’s plans were kept secret, but his team was getting closer and closer to figuring out what was going on. They thought that was the case. Ian figured out that Ben’s jumps were not random. In fact, they were timed so that he would have enough speed to jump further back in time. This would have helped the team figure out where Ben was going, which would have helped them figure out why he was going there. But when Leaper X comes along, this will change.
Jenn thinks that, like Ben, Leaper X should look like himself instead of the person he has jumped into if he is also traveling through time and they can see him through the imaging chamber. Now that they know what he looks like, they put his picture through software that can recognize faces, and the name Richard Martinez comes up. Jenn and Magic go to see him, but Martinez knows nothing about the Quantum Leap project or traveling through time.
After thinking about everything, Jenn comes up with three ways for them to get out of their situation. The first is that someone else has been working on a plan to travel through time, and Martinez is their leaper. The other is that a private company has worked on it in secret. The third possibility, which might have seemed unlikely in a different situation, seems to be the most likely one right now: Martinez has jumped from the future.
Magic and his team are in charge of the project right now, but they don’t know how it will turn out. They have no idea who will be in control or how many individuals will have jumped by then. Martinez hasn’t jumped yet, so it’s possible that he will join the project at some point in the future.
Up until this time, the squad had only been gazing back and contemplating the past. They may have previously had a skewed perspective on events given that they are now aware that it is possible to go into the future and that there is another time traveler who is most likely from the future. Ben’s route may be leading him farther into the past or farther into the future, Ian is unsure.
Ben made some changes to the program before he jumped, and the team hasn’t figured out what those changes were yet, so they don’t know if he set his destination in the past or in the future. If he really goes to the future, his team will have an even harder time figuring out what he wants to do.
In the big picture of Ben’s life, his past trips made sense. All of the events have already happened, and they have everything they need to study a certain day or event and move on from there. They don’t know what will happen in the future, though. They can’t figure out why Ben would do something so strange. One thing is certain, though. Something good couldn’t have taken him from his happy present to an uncertain future.
On November 8, 1965, Sam jumps into Francesco “Frankie” La Palma, a handsome mob hitman who was having a risky tryst with the lover of Don Geno Frascotti. Sam needs to stay out of Geno’s way and do what Ziggy tells him to do. Ziggy has thought of a way to help bring Sam back.
Sam jumps on Frankie right after he seems to have made love to Teresa Pacci, Don Geno’s girlfriend, in the attic. Pacci is in love with Don Geno. Primo, Frankie’s brother, is getting married to Angela, who is the daughter of Geno. Don Geno comes up to Teresa after she leaves Frankie.
She has been going out with him for a while now. Teresa wants to break up with Geno, but Geno tells her that their relationship will end when he says it will. Geno thinks that Teresa is seeing someone else, but Teresa says she is not. Geno tells one of his thugs to find Teresa’s boyfriend.
Sam, on the other side, is walking among Primo and Angela’s wedding guests. Sam is asked to sing Volare on stage for a couple who just got married. Sam is put in front of the crowd, and Al, who speaks Italian well, helps him sing the whole song. After that, he and Al walk away from the crowd to talk. Al tells Sam that Ziggy isn’t being helpful, so Al can’t tell Sam anything about his mission other than the fact that Sam is a mafia hitman, which scares Sam. Al also tells Sam that Ziggy has the plan to get Sam back to his own time, but Sam has to do everything Ziggy tells him to do.
The next day, Sam sees Teresa walking down the street with Frankie’s two brothers, Primo and Segundo, where she works as a hairdresser. Sam decides that he needs to talk to Teresa, so he goes inside to get a haircut. Teresa likes Sam’s new look, but it surprises her. She sits him down so she can cut his hair. She informs him that if Geno saw them together, Sam’s life would be at risk. Sam learns from this that Teresa and Geno are cheating on each other.
Tony La Palma, Frankie’s dad, is waiting outside the salon with Primo and Segundo for Sam.
Geno pulls over and gets out of his car to talk with them. He starts to think something is wrong when he sees Sam getting a haircut from Teresa. Frankie’s dad talks to the hairstylists and other women at the salon to try to convince Geno that he sent Sam there to find out who Teresa’s boyfriend is.
Geno doesn’t believe Sam, but he says he won’t kill Sam as long as Sam backs up the story. Geno tells Teresa to move out of the way when he walks into the salon.
He puts a razor to Sam’s throat and asks him why he is in the salon with Teresa.
Sam can’t understand Geno when he talks in Italian.
Al walks in and tells Sam that he knows what Geno wants to hear. He then makes Sam say what he said again. Sam can tell Geno in Italian that it was his father’s idea and that he thinks he can figure out who Teresa’s lover is by listening to what the women in the salon are saying. When Geno hears Sam’s answer, he smiles and walks away.
Al tells Sam that Ziggy has now come up with a way to bring Sam back to the present: Sam must repeat what happened right before he jumped in and plug in a hairdryer at a certain address in Buffalo, New York. Since Sam is in Brooklyn, he sends Primo and Segundo to Buffalo to plug in the hair dryer while he calls Teresa and asks her to meet him in Geno’s attic to make love like they did the day before. Even though Teresa isn’t sure, Sam tells her that the meeting is important for their future.
Primo and Segundo steal a hairdryer from Teresa’s salon and drive to Buffalo. They drive up to what looks like a fraternity house and plug the hairdryer into an outlet on the outside of the house. As soon as Primo turns on the hairdryer, the whole street loses power because of an electrical surge. Geno’s goon tells him that Sam and Teresa just climbed up Geno’s trellis and are meeting in Geno’s attic. Geno is upset and wants to get even.
Most of the East Coast is now without power because of the damage Primo did to the power grid. In Geno’s attic, Sam and Teresa are making out. Sam doesn’t know if he will be able to do what he wants to do. He doesn’t want to lie, so he tells her he is not the Frankie she knows.
Teresa says it doesn’t matter if he lies because men always lie to her. Sam tells her she is unique and deserves better because of that.
Geno comes up and puts a gun to their heads as they start to kiss. Sam says that he is to blame for the affair and tells Geno that he forced Teresa to go to the attic even though she said she didn’t want to. Geno tells him that he respects a person who tells the truth about how he died. Teresa steps in and tells Geno that she wants to go to the attic. Geno is about to shoot them both when the power goes out at his house, turning off the lights.
Sam uses the distraction to get Geno’s gun, and then he and Geno fight over who is in charge.
As they do this, Sam jumps out of Frankie and into Don Geno. Now, Frankie is back, but she has forgotten everything. He says that Sam and Geno are not guilty when he sees them. But Sam knows what he needs to do now: he needs to keep Frankie and Teresa together. When he asks them if they love each other, they both say yes. Sam knows that he needs to find a way to tell everyone that he agrees with them getting married so that when the real Geno comes back, he can’t keep getting revenge.
Sam takes Frankie and Teresa to the church hall where Frankie’s grandmother is playing bingo.
Sam tells the priest that Frankie and Teresa are getting married, and the priest tells Don Geno.
This is what the priest does, and Sam also tells Frankie that he can’t work for the mob anymore.
Sam can’t figure out why he hasn’t left Geno’s body yet. Al tells Sam he has one last job to do: pick the winning bingo number so that Frankie’s grandmother can win a game for the first time.
