I was really excited for an episode centered on multiverse theory. I thought for sure, once that happened, it would help to clear up any possible paradoxes in future episodes regarding time travel. Instead, the alternative universe was a universe composed of antimatter.
- A duplicate of our universe composed of antimatter would be a complete opposite/mirror reflection of our universe
- The first incident of wrestling between the two Lazaruses should have resulted in their mutual destruction and prevented the story of this episode from ever really taking place.
- Even though I know that multiverse theory can explain the possibility of time travel, nothing about this episode cleared that up; so, had I no previous knowledge, all future episodes dealing with time travel will be bitter pills to swallow. What kind of a storyteller wastes an opportunity like that? Bitter, stupid pills.
