Interesting facts

+ Writer Lawrence Shore makes a cameo appearance as 'Man at Airport'. Surprisingly, he didn't actually write this particular episode.
+ Selina Giles played a cameo role in the 1995 movie Restoration.

Verdict

Again the flashback excels at the expense of the modern-day story, but it's still an improvement over the previous episode. B+
