There is a chance that James Cole is not insane. His paranoid ravings about a post-apocalyptic future in which the world has been ravaged by a deadly virus might be true, and the Army of the Twelve Monkeys might be real. The only trouble is, if Dr. Kathryn Railly accepts this, she will have to accept a terrifying truth: TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt is coming... soon.

* SocietyMarchesOn: The depiction of 1990s airport security is accurate. Today, [[spoiler:Dr. Peters]] would never would've gotten the vials past them. Likewise, in a post-9/11 and PATRIOT Act world, a virologist with top level clearance suddenly taking a trip around the globe to many of the world's major ports would've raised flags to the FBI, Homeland Security, and numerous other agencies.

And Railly's accusations about him at the airport would've been investigated no matter ''how'' crazy she seemed.
