FlashForward: Season 1 Episode 16 Recap: "The Garden of Forking Paths"

On this week's episode, Mark races against the clock to save Demetri.

First, the main title features a teaser of Mark Bedford running frantically down a corridor lined with pipes.

We open with Demetri in a room, staring down the barrel of a gun, with the laser sight pointed square at his chest. He is strapped to a chair, lined with wires, all connected to the gun. Behind him is a giant map of lines and dashes, pointing in different directions to different dates and people, with some lines connecting back to others. Paths branch off everywhere. We see a photo of Demetri, which reads "March 15, 2010 - Demetri Dies" The date is then shown as March 15, 2010.

Cut to the bureau where Charlie is being questioned by Mark and Janis about the man who approached her at the carnival. This man, of course, is Dyson Frost. Charlie sees flashes of what he looks like, but can't be specific. Stanford suggests Charlie close her eyes since it could help her remember more. She remembers that Frost knew her name, but she didn't know who he was. In her flashback, Frost tells Charlie he works with her father, and talks to her about several Dr. Seuss stories, specifically his favorite, "1 fish 2 fish red fish blue fish." Frost tells her to do something for him, and hands her a photo to give to her father.

Mark looks at the photo, a print of two men on rocks. He reads the back. It says if they want Demetri back alive, to be at the main concourse of Union Station at noon on March 15, 2010.
