Well last nights episode was great as always, I was a bit sad to read the official story from the writers that Sam did die, but it works well, I think I will always stick with this guys interpretation in my heart though
My own personal view was that he was mad, he had gone back in time and he was in a coma…all three!
In a Quantum Leap type way after the crash that 2006 Sam had his soul (for want of a better word) was sent back in time took hold of the 1973 Sam Williams who was just about to start his undercover work. Perhaps this done by some higher power to both save Tyler’s brain, save Williams’ body and save Gene and the rest of the team. If this is the case Gene did and possibly still does, exist and always did. Maybe the way that the audience see’s the Sam as 2006 Sam would see himself but to everyone else he looks nothing like this and actually looks like Sam Williams.
What do you reckon?

Hmm just realised that in both life on mars and quantum leap the main characters were called Sam, another coincidence?
Anyway thanks to the BBC, Matthew Graham, Ashley Pharoah, Tony Jordan, John Simm, Philip Glenister and of course Liz White for a great ride. I’ll be interested to see how the US version goes, hopefully they wont destroy it like so many other UK->US conversions, a Hollywood style ending would just be sad.
