    This was the worst episode. I can't wait for next week's episode though. Thomas?

    I have to agree, this episode did nothing for me as well.
    Next weeks looks interesting though.

    All I can say is they need to give this show's timeslot to Firefly, which is, you know, good.

    No, I'm saying that no show has succeeded in that timeslot in about 15 years, and the later show will simply do better. 8 PM on fridays is the worst timeslot on television.

    And I'm saying I don't think one hour makes a difference. I find it hard to believe nobody's watching TV at 8EST, but at 9EST they are.

    I missed last Friday's show. Can anyone please provide a recap of the episode. I would very much appreciate it. Thank you.

    If you're here, you must have either seen the episode or wish to read about it. Therefore, I haven't spoilerized the following:
    Roughly:
    John meets a woman who claims he is the father to her son through artificial insemination and supported by a DNA-match.
    Though as it turns out, the boy is actually the result of a covert eugenics experiment (known as Group Otto) that combined the cells of a group of individuals with high IQs (one of whom was John). Effectively, any one in that group could be the boy's father. I'm unsure of how a female member could be involved and how the boy's DNA matched John's, though.
    Seeing the situation as an opportunity to discover more of his mysterious past (and awaken his underdeveloped paternal instincts), John endeavors to track down each member of Group Otto and finds that a number of them have been killed, with their brains extracted.
    Three surviving members are met and are aloof to John and his investigation. Gradually, these three members worry for their safety at their respective residences and decide to congregate at John's place for refuge. Putting their heads together, they determine the murderer's hideout and stop him from finishing his macabre work--destroying all participants in Group Otto including the young boy.
    In closing, the young boy's father is determined conclusively (John Doe is not it) and John parts company with the boy amicably.
    Literally within the final seconds of the episode, a woman seen in an earlier episode who is presumed to be a key player in John's disoriented state of mind and amnesia, is revealed and utters words to the effect of "It's time", while viewing surveillance photographs of John.
