    I think we are meant to be left guessing if the call the President was making was to organise the Hitmen or to arrange the funding, i think it will be some time beofre they reveal who the call was to, but aimed to make us suspicious of the President for the time being. The flash forward the President had, showed him still President being woken up by someone saying we have a problem. So it is doubtful Clemente saw herself as President in her's, more likely she saw the possibility or something that was going to lead her to the position, or she may just have been lying to Stanford to scare him. I tend to think she maybe lying and her flashforward had more to do with Stanford and Mosiac than she let on.
    I think it will be sometime before we are given any solid information about anything

    The daughter on this show really annoys me . Spoilering since it references tonight's show.
    Click to see Spoiler:
    She's had multiple opportunities to explain how she knows Dylan yet she's so nonchalant about it. It doesn't even seem to bother her that her mom is shacked up with another man. She obviously knows because she's telling Dylan in his FF that it's his house too. And yet she also knows about D. Gibbons. She must have packed a lot into her 2 min 17 seconds!

    I thought the same ArchieComic Fan!

    Seriously though - the looks on the 3 faces when Olivia walked in that door and each one of them put it all together was AWESOME!!! Although I didn't like Mark/Olivia argument in the kitchen - he was acting like an immature petulant child and condemning her for something she hadn't yet done. I liked that she called him out on that when he admitted to the drinking part of his FF.

    The train pickup scene was skeevy. I like that we're getting more of the mystery with Simon, the blue hand, and the new Rutherford case.

    Oh my goodness!!!! I was channel surfing last night and got captured about 1/4 of the way through this. I know I will have to back watch the previous episodes, but I must say.....so far, it's a thumbs up. The scenes with the autistic boy caught my attention, and after doing a quick look up on the premise, I'm thinking I'll be watching this one.

    I stand corrected on when Mark and to whom Mark revealed his drinking in his FF. I, also, did not like the kitchen scene - way too intense. In fact I'm not liking Mark much at all. I do like the kangaroo and that he (or she) made another appearance - and on the Halloween show. Dylan was pulling the cookie jar and the refrigerator decor from his fast forward, wasn't he? It is, supposedly in the future, so how did he wind up downstairs with Charlie in the kitchen? His dad leaves Olivia's bed to take a phone call, also downstairs, while Olivia follows him and watches from the balcony. So...all four people in the house are awake in the early morning hours.

    I also like that more puzzle pieces were added...now we have dead crows, towers surrounding an African village, blue hands from Baltimore Street, and a name that leads to an investigation in the UK. I wonder if it was too soon (for the show) for Simon (?) to reveal his knowledge and for Dylan's Dad's connection to "the project" be revealed. Anyway it is picking up.

    When I saw those blue hands, my first thought was of River Tam chanting, "Two by two, hands of blue." She was talking about the Alliance enforcers from Firefly. The hands look exactly the same and they brutally kill, by means of a thin, wandlike device, anyone whom they perceive as a danger to the Alliance's plans for River and for domination of the universe.

    It's not the only similarity I see between Flashforward and Firefly, which surprises me because I can't find any connection between the creative teams.

    I agree. It fit wonderfully.

    So the dead chinese were blue hand, so couldn't have been sent by the President right?
    And quantum physics is somehow involved in all this?

    I tought both Mark and Olivia were acting like children in the kitchen. The FF haven't happened but that fight just led them one step closer to them by causing a fight that ended up with them saying they don't trust each other.

    And I'm wondering just how quickly they break up. I would think that going from a 13 year marriage to living with anothe man and your small children in 6 months is really quick.

    Also, as we seem to be doing this in real time unlike lost, what's goign to happen to this show AFTER April 29, 2010. They FF will be fulfilled and then what will happen? The aspect of the future will be gone by April 30, it will be the past.

    I also think if I saw a kangaroo in my neighborhood, I wouldn't have been so nonchalent as in: "well, that's not something you see every day." I would have been thinking (especially as an FBI agent) WHat in the HELL is a kangaroo doing here?

    And as a parent, I would have asked Charlie a LOT more questions about her FF.
