The Orville - Season 2, Ep. 13

This episode, called "Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow", revisits time-travel, and in line with the show's masterful way to address all issues that came up in the series, it is done with care and consistency. As is most often the case in science-fiction, time-travel is just instrumental to explore other issues that are relevant to real, present-day viewers. This episode addresses the topic of second chances in the context of the relationship between Ed and Kerry. Even so, the possibilities of time-travel are dealt with coherence, considering that the events on the Orville my imply that a new timeline has been created, or that the only existing timeline would have had to change. Also the need to avoid the paradox is incorporated to the story, with a solution á la Michael Crichton's Sphere (no more details about this to avoid spoilers...).

Even so, the possibilities of time-travel are dealt with coherence, considering that the events on the Orville my imply that a new timeline has been created, or that the only existing timeline would have had to change. Also the need to avoid the paradox is incorporated to the story, with a solution á la Michael Crichton's Sphere (no more details about this to avoid spoilers...). The very last scene brings all this into question, but it should be taken as a nice twist to keep us on our toes, rather than an inconsistency. We'll be eagerly waiting for this storyline to be picked up again soon...
