then WHAM! Guess what? He's a serial killer.
No, he was a serial killer. That is quite a different thing. When we see him, he is quite a different person. That is part of what I like so much about this ep. It shows that we are not slaves to our genes, we have vast possibilities in life. The same person could turn out in such different ways. If his life had been different in some ways, he would never have become a serial killer. Once that was erased, he was free to be a much better person, which is the person we saw.

There is an ill-named, and not overly good scifi film, The Butterfly Effect, that uses that theme, that differences in our lives can lead us to be quite different people. I did like that aspect of that film.
