Flash Forward

Go To

This page is about the trope. For the 1996 series, go here. For the 2009 series, go here. For the 2019 DC Comics mini-series starring Wally West, go here.

Opposite of a Flashback and different from a Distant Finale and not quite Time Travel or a Dream Sequence. The Flash Forward is a look ahead at what may be a possibility in the characters' futures. When it occurs once at the very start of a work, it's How We Got Here.

Not to be confused with Seers - characters who can view the future (or a possible future) inside the context of the story. Compare Futureshadowing and Call-Forward.

    Anime & Manga 
  • In D.Gray-Man, the Alma Karma arc begins with a flashforward to the attack of the North American Branch by The Earl. It then cuts back to the events some hours earlier.
  • The Quintessential Quintuplets has several of these to five years in the future, where male lead Fuutarou Uesugi is getting married to one of the Nakano Quintuplets. However, the identity of the quintuplet in question remains obscured for the most part until near the end of the story, eventually revealed to be Yotsuba, the fourth sister.
  • Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann starts out with a flash-forward to the cast preparing to face off against "all the lights in the heavens". However, nothing like this ends up happening; Word of God admits that this plot thread got discarded at some point, and eventually declared that the scene was an alternate-universe Bad Ending.
  • Venus Versus Virus's anime begins with a flash forward to the climax of the show. Though it is more of an Action Prologue.

    Comic Books 
  • Archie Comics: Archie Marries Veronica is stated to be a flashforward story arc, set after Archie and the gang have graduated from college.
  • The Ballad of Halo Jones featured a flash forward several centuries ahead of the main story's timeline. Here, in what appears to be a utopia, a history professor lectures his students on Halo's adventures back in the 51st century. It ends with him expressing his feelings and longing for the centuries-dead woman.
  • Days of Future Past, in which various X-men and others get glimpses of a possible future where the USA has been conquered by the Sentinel mutant-hunting A.I.s, mutants are rounded up in concentration camps, and America has basically been reduced to a totalitarian nightmare. The storyline pivots around the activities of present day (fictional) U.S. Senator Robert Kelly, and it's left unclear whether or not that future has been prevented.
  • In the Legion of Super-Heroes comics, the infamous Adult Legion story from Adventure Comics #354-355, which even depicted the deaths of members who hadn't joined yet. Stories were written for almost two decades that seemed to work towards the future shown here (and other earlier Adult Legion stories) until it was finally revealed as an alternate reality.
  • The final issue of Mega Man (Archie Comics) had Dr. Light seeing visions of the future from Mega Man 4 all the way to Mega Man Legends
  • Rai #0, written by Jim Shooter, who also wrote the Adult Legion story.
  • In Tarot: Witch of the Black Rose, starting from Issue 39 the narrative has proposed a potential good future for Tarot, Jon and Raven; that original peek already warned variations to that potential outcome may happen, and indeed before that point in time ever took place new peeks of the future over the years implemented a few differences to that narrative:
    • Issue 39: Tarot has completed her task of unifying the world of mankind and magick, with that she starts a family with Jon, having a daughter with him; with their marriage being a little different in her traditions Tarot has Jon accept her sister Raven as well, bearing a daughter with Jon as well, all of them are a happy family.
    • Issue 80: While seeking refuge from a rainstorm Raven humorously teases Jon of their future together, the fact he will give Raven and Tarot children is reinforced, but this time their gender is not mentioned, and a new party is brought to that future, Raven and Tarot’s own mom somehow would also hook up with Jon, bearing a child with him. Years later, however, in issue 115, Tarot and Raven’s mom dies, effectively closing that part of the future Raven once saw.
    • Issue 114: As Raven records her then current turmoil over being courted by a dragon prince who wanted her hand in marriage but Raven rejected his ongoing advances, yet she felt a little conflicted because the prince was genuinely kind, managing to pierce her heart just a little bit due Raven starting to feel the need of building a family her own, and that’s when she thinks of Jon whom she now says will give her a child, now a son, not a daughter.
  • Witchblade #500 (which was a Wizard mail-in offer that depicted a future #500 issue of the comic).

    Comic Strips 

    Fan Works 
  • In The Bug-Type Queen, a Worm x Pokémon: The Series crossover, the interludes take place six years ahead of the current story, after Taylor has returned to Brockton Bay years later. However, because of the time-shenanigans, she returns back at the moment she left.
  • A Different Fight, being an alternate version of Arrow Season 4, also had one of these near the beginning. Barry visits Oliver Drowning His Sorrows in his apartment and asks about Laurel. Oliver replies that physically she should be fine, but they haven't told her about "the other thing" yet, and he says he's going to kill the one responsible. It later turns out, the attempt on her life caused her to have a miscarriage.
  • The Empath: The Luckiest Smurf story "Days Of Future Smurfed" starts in the distant future of the Smurfs (circa 2005) where the only Smurfs alive are Great-Grandfather Smurf (a.k.a. Empath) and his grandson Polaris Smurf, who eventually becomes Traveler. The story alternates between that time period and the present time period of the story series, where the younger Empath experiences "flash forwards" into the future at various points leading up to the starting point of the story. In those "flash forwards", he sees himself and Smurfette getting married and having a child, Papa Smurf dying, Smurfette dying, and eventually the village itself being destroyed.
  • In the Motion Practice series, which recasts various Marvel superheroes as lawyers, the story "Judicial Conduct" ends with a flash-forward to a scene several years after the rest of the series, in which Assistant District Attorney Coulson has become a judge.
  • Chapter 14 of What if the Yeerks Were the Good Guys? ends with Tom feeling glad he's safe with his little brother... followed by a future-tense scene where Jake has Tom tied up in the woods.
  • As N Approaches Infinity opens with a How We Got Here, as Homura meets the Bleach cast and reveals that they've met in a previous timeline, with the main narrative detailing their previous interactions. When the story eventually cuts forward again, Homura admits that this is the fifty-fourth time she's told them about what's going on.
  • The coda at the end of Pat's chapter in The Haunting of Villa Layla is set a few years later in 1950, on the night Rahne Sinclair, aka Wolfsbane, was born.

    Films — Live-Action 
  • In The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, Elrond warns Arwen what will happen if she stays in Middle-Earth and marries Aragorn, and there is a scene of Aragorn's funeral, after he has become king and has died of old age, while Arwen lives on in grief and loneliness.
  • Next revolved around the ability of Nicolas Cage's character to see two minutes into the future (unless certain conditions were met), and play it over and over again in his mind until he found the optimal path to take (typically one that didn't end up with him being shot or beaten).
  • In Parenthood, after putting Kevin on second base at a baseball game, Gil has two of these to Kevin's college graduation: in the first Kevin is confident and successful, but in the second (after Kevin failed to make a catch), he is at the top of a tower shooting at everyone in sight with an assault rifle.
  • In Lola Rennt, a.k.a. Run Lola Run in the US, an encounter with another pedestrian sometimes triggered a Blipvert showing what would happen to that person.
  • In Sweet Country, brief glimpses of the characters' futures are scattered through the film. Several of them have context missing such that it's not clear what they signify until the story catches up with that moment, and because the flashforwards are not marked out by any visual or sonic cues there are a couple where it's not even obvious that they weren't contemporary events until they come around again.

  • In Brave New World, one of the doctors creating test-tube babies is interrupted, and can't recall if she added one of the components to a specimen. She decides that she has, and moves on. The scene then flashes forward twenty-two years to show the aforementioned person suddenly dropping dead.
  • Breakfast of Champions provides a few glimpses into Kilgore Trout's later life.
  • Older Than Radio: Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol with the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come, could be considered this or Time Travel.
  • Flashforward by Robert J. Sawyer centers around people all over the world having a glimpse of their lives twenty years in the future, and the subsequent consequences of this.
  • In The Future of Us by Carolyn Mackler and Jay Asher, this happens. In 1996, neighbors Josh and Emma install AOL on their computers and are immediately logged on to Facebook. Obviously, Facebook hasn't been invented yet, so they are viewing their futures. In fact, every time they log on, their page changes.
  • Elie Wiesel's Night has this at one point, to show him meeting a woman he met in the concentration camps again, in Paris.
  • In The Secrets of Drearcliff Grange School, Amy has one at the climax of the novel, when she dives into the Purple to save Dora Paule, seeing what will become of herself and her friends as adults.

    Live-Action TV 
  • Arrow:
    • The first episode of the fourth season has a scene set 6 months in the future with Oliver and Barry standing by a grave of an unknown Team Arrow member, and an openly weeping Oliver vowing to kill the one responsible. The Midseason Premier picked up where that left off, and had Oliver join Felicity in a car where she told him "You need to kill that son of a bitch." The episode 11:59 ends on the death of Laurel Lance, confirming that she's the one in the grave, and the following episode finally catches up to the flash-forwards.
    • Season 7 has regular flashforwards to a Bad Future in place of the island flashbacks from seasons 1-5.
  • Babylon 5:
    • The finale of the fourth season, "The Deconstruction of Falling Stars", consists of a series of flash-forwards, the last of which takes place one million years(!) after the series.
    • In the season 3 two-parter, "War Without End", Sheridan himself flashes forward in time 18 years to see a devastated Centauri Prime, followed by the events of the dream/premonition Londo spoke to Sinclair about in the very first episode. We don't get to find out what was really going on there until the arrival of a spin-off trilogy of novels.
  • The first episode of season 4 of Being Human starts with a jump to a few decades in the future - a future in which the vampires have apparently taken over the world, with only a small resistance movement fighting them.
  • In the Boy Meets World episode "Seven the Hard Way", the gang has gotten into a fight that has tested all of their friendships. There is a flash forward to a potential future where the gang has broken up, and takes place when they reunite for the first time at Mr. Feeny's retirement party seven years later. In this future, Cory and Topanga have had a baby, Shawn and Angela are both traveling journalists, Jack is a "captain of industry" (in his late twenties), Rachel moved back to Texas, and Eric became an insane hermit who calls himself "Playswithsquirrels". However, when the episode returns to the present everybody reconciles and this future is averted. 15 years later, not so much for Shawn and Angela.
  • Breaking Bad initiates almost every episode in this way. This was taken even further at the beginning of Season 5, in which a flash-forward glimpsed at events that wouldn't happen until the next half of the season (which occurred nearly a year later).
  • Charmed: The nature of Phoebe's power of premonition is that she sees visions of what might happen, and sometimes what had already happened. Then there are spells that have been cast by others to see scenes from both the past and the future.
  • The Chosen: The first episode of Season Two begins with John writing his Gospel while interviewing the disciples after Big James's execution in Acts of the Apostles. The rest of the episode and the season takes place during the era of the Gospels when Jesus and His disciples are still alive.
  • In the old Dark Shadows supernatural soap opera, at one point the vampire-hero Barnabas Collins and his sidekick Dr. Julia Hoffman, while crossing over between parallel time lines, are thrown forward from 1970 into the then-distant year of 1995, where they discover the family mansion wrecked, overrun by zombies, some relative dead, others insane, and a demonic ghost haunting the property.
  • Doctor Who: "Human Nature"/"The Family of Blood" has two of these moments, both courtesy of the Chameleon Arch:
    • After psychic teenager Tim Latimer steals the watch, a comment by Headmaster Rocastle about one day having a "just and proper war in which to prove [himself]" leads him to have a vision of himself and the boy who bullies him struggling through a muddy battlefield at night, and then apparently getting hit by an artillery shell. This vision eventually saves Tim's life when he experiences it for real.
    • When John Smith, the Doctor's human personality, is struggling with whether or not to let himself die to bring back the Doctor, the watch shows him and his Love Interest Joan Redfern a vision of a potential future where the two of them get married, have children and generally live happily ever after, with John dying peacefully in bed after being reassured that his family is all right. This one, sadly, never happens, as John makes the decision to open the watch and become the Doctor again as it's the only way to stop the villains.
  • In Dollhouse, the unaired thirteenth episode, Epitaph One, shows several of these that will seemingly happen in the next five years of the Dollhouse future. After a tease that this could have been a computer simulation, the series ended with Epitaph Two, which continued from that episode.
  • Family Ties had An Aesop episode that adapts "A Christmas Carol" when Alex "sees" his future as a bald, potbellied rich man visiting his family. They are pathetically grateful to see him, but he acts like a total Rich Bitch and afterwords is totally disgusted with his future greedy self and vows to change. Naturally, the joke is that he is at first mostly upset that he is bald.
  • The Flash (1990), a short-lived 1990 series about the titular DC superhero, had a Flash Forward episode, which had the name "Flashforward".
  • The season one finale of The Flash (2014) had Barry glimpsing scenes from the future as he enters the Speed Force.
  • The ABC series FlashForward (2009), as can logically be expected, has this as its premise. Everyone in the world blacks out at the same time and sees a glimpse of their future.
    • Well, not everyone. One character did not see anything during his blackout and seems to think that means he won't be alive on the date in question (all flashforwards seem to be to the same date and time). Apparently, the more likely possibility that he'll simply be asleep and not in REM at the crucial time point hasn't occurred to him.
    • Or maybe not, since he meets another character who didn't see anything. She consequently gets killed in the same episode. He is also contacted by someone who saw information relating to his death during her own blackout.
  • There have been a couple of flashforwards in How I Met Your Mother, ranging from short (about a week, to Lily and Marshall's wedding) to long (21 years, when Marshall open Lily's death letter).
  • Lost:
    • The typical Flash Back story in the Season 3 finale is revealed to be a Flash Forward at the very end, when Jack meets Kate outside an airport.
    • Ji Yeon appears to show a flashforward with Sun and Jin-Sun is giving birth while Jin is trying to get there in time...until, at the end, Jin's story is revealed as a flashback when Hurley and Sun visit Jin's grave.
    • The Season 5 premiere opens with a flashforward to Daniel in DHARMA. Strange, since this is a flashforward to an event that occurred 30 years prior to the present, but that wouldn't happen until towards the end of the season.
  • The final episode of Mad About You is a Flash Forward to the two main characters' baby daughter, now a grown woman (played by Janeane Garofalo) following in her father's footsteps as a filmmaker, talking about their lives and hers since the penultimate episode, with specific scenes and clips which span the years in between shown to the audience.
  • In the Merlin episode "Queen of Hearts" we get a glimpse (though Morgana's dreams) of the future of Camelot, in which Arthur has become king and is crowning Guinevere his queen. She ain't happy about this...
  • My Family: The episode "2039: A Christmas Oddity" takes place 30 years after the airing of the episode (the episode in question first airing in 2009) and gives us a glimpse at what the family has been up to since then.
  • NCIS routinely uses flash-forwards of the final image of an upcoming scene. These shots generally show insufficient information to the viewer to understand the scene until it occurs in the normal flow of the story.
  • The framing story for the Christmas episode of Power Rangers Zeo shows an elderly Tommy and his wife, Kat, telling a story to their grandchildren. Arguments as to whether or not this marriage is Tommy's canonical destiny (since his continued bachelorhood in later seasons suggests otherwise) persist to this day.
  • Radio Enfer: In a Season 2 episode, Dominique tries to predict what will happen to the then-current main characters when they will become adults. This is used as a framing device for a high school reunion set in the future. Although, considering some of the things that happened to the characters in the following seasons, that high school reunion will likely not happen the way it was portrayed in that episode.
  • Saved by the Bell featured an episode set in 2003 (then 10 years in the future), where an aged Mr Belding watched a video from the gang in 1993. However, it was an excuse for a Clip Show.
  • In Six Feet Under the last episode flashes forward to the various death's of all thee main characters.
  • In Stargate SG-1, Daniel got a flashforward to one possible path after Shar'e died in Forever in a Day. That future never really happened, though. He did this again in Absolute Power, when Shar'e's son showed him what would happen if they accessed the genetic memory of the Goa'uld. That didn't happen either.
  • The entire final episode of Star Trek: Enterprise, "These Are The Voyages" is both a Flash Back and a Flash Forward. The main story is set some six years after the rest of the series, and is told as a holodeck reenactment. The framing story takes place two centuries later during the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode "The Pegasus", which aired over a decade earlier. As the entire episode is recreated on the Holodeck of the Enterprise D circa 2370 and the only real people we see are Riker and Troi the rest being holographic recreations, it's really only a Flashback episode as we are viewing an historical event.
  • That '70s Show:
    • There is a Flash Forward showing where the kids will be at their 10-year high school reunion — in the 1980s, including big hair and New Wave Music.
    • There's an episode when Eric imagines his future with Donna as 1950s style with her at home and him at work and she's rather upset and then comes back at him with her working and him at home with the kids. Both times it was shown to the audience.
  • Episode 1 of documentary series The Vietnam War concentrates on Vietnamese resistance to their French colonial overlords, but uses Flash Forwards to underline the similarity between the French war and the later American war. One example quotes a French soldier's despairing letter home to his mother, about how the war is going badly. The scene then cuts forward 20 years, to have an American vet talk about his despairing phone call home when he told his mother that America was losing the war.
  • Season 7 of The West Wing opens with a Flash Forward of most of the cast in the future, waiting for Bartlet's successor (who we don't see the face of).

  • In the original Dawn of a New Age roleplay, flashes of a potential future were shown to the players at periodic intervals. In Dawn of a New Age: Oldport Blues this was modified so that the character Finn gained the power of pre-cognition, allowing both him and the players to see glimpses into the future. As said future is malleable, what is seen is only ever a potential future based on the actions of other characters at the time.

    Video Games 
  • Eternal Darkness uses Anachronic Order and Flashback Cuts, so that, for example, Anthony (chapter 3, 818 AD) has Flash Forwards of Ellia (chapter 2, 1150 AD). Try not to think about it too hard...
  • [PROTOTYPE] uses this from time to time. The story is set over the span of roughly 18-19 days, and while the player begins to play from day 1 where nothing has happened yet, cutscenes between some missions visit day 18 where the main character is explaining to a military commander what the hell happened in New York over the course of said 18 days.
  • Splinter Cell: Conviction does this, showing what will happen some time later in the White House. Grim will supposedly betray, capture, and hand over Sam to the enemy for execution.

  • In 8-Bit Theater Black Mage gets pinned to the front of an airship while it's traveling at high speed. While pinned there we see a conversation between him and another character years in the future as Black Mage finally turns against the Heroes and asks why they left him pinned to the ship. The same conversation occurred in-story much later.
  • At the beginning of the "Futures Trading" arc of The Adventures of Dr. McNinja, while Doc is caught up in the Timey-Wimey Ball, he ends up in a scenario where he's injured and trapped in a building, being ordered to surrender or be bombed. Doc doesn't recognize the incident, and Chuck Goodrich reveals Doc's gone a little too far ahead in his own timeline before pulling him back in and stabilizing their time-jump. In "The End, Part 2", while fighting King Radical in his Presidential Warehouse, Doc begins to realize he's been there before. Sure enough... (though it turns out it's Frans Rayner making the threat).
  • A moderately common device in Arthur, King of Time and Space. Whole-strip flashforwards are signalled by the page having a red background (just as whole-strip flashbacks have a blue background), but more common are strips that flash forward in the last panel, usually using the Lancelot/Guenevere relationship for Hypocritical Humour.
  • In The Rant below this page of Gunnerkrigg Court, there are links to a series of pictures showing John and Margo later that same day. Then the final picture is of Margo, 21 years later.
  • Homestuck has one from here to here, showing to readers in advance how Tavros got a pair of robotic legs, weeks after the events shown prior.
  • Frequently appears in Sunstone showing that even at the comics low points everything works out for the better...eventually.
  • Happens quite frequently near the end of Yumi's Cells.
    • This glimpse of the future is first seen when Babi proposes to Yumi and the scene shifts to an event three years later where Yumi mentions her husband while Babi is out shopping while carrying a toddler, presumably his child. This doubles as a Red Herring, as Yumi ends up rejecting Babi's proposal and they part ways for good. Then the future scene of Babi pans sideways to show that the one he eventually marries is Da-Eun, not Yumi.
    • Another flash forward happens when Yumi gives Shin a massage because he has a stomach ache while they're on a trip. The scene shifts to the day of their wedding, and Shin returns this favour because Yumi is nervous.

    Western Animation 
  • Possibly (or just a dream) in the Adventure Time episode "Lemonhope" at the very end, flashing forward 1000 years to see Lemonhope reach the end of his journeys and return home, just as he was, even after the Candy Kingdom has withered away...
  • Archer Vice ends the first episode of the season with a montage of snippets from every crazy plot point that's going to happen through the season. Apparently it's all being imagined by Archer and it is awesome. Although only about half the plot points actually appear in the actual season.
  • Arthur: Occasionally, the 3rd grade cast will be shown older, usually at the end of an episode.
    • The end of "Muffy's Soccer Shocker" shows an adult Muffy as the coach of a soccer team, using her dad's soccer methods (which she initially disapproved of).
    • At the end of "And Now Let's Talk to Some Kids", set when the characters have reached old age, Brain has become a famous professor with a television show dedicated to his discoveries. Arthur and Francine watch a tape of themselves on the Magic Tool Box show and talk about their old classmates.
    • "Background Blues" has a flash-forward for its Cold Open, with a futuristic family who looks like Arthur's. Future Arthur and D.W. are playing around when their mother invites them to watch a "datagram"... which turns out to be the episode itself. At the end, they wonder if the world really was like that a long time ago.
    • "The Contest" ends with a segment of Arthur and his friends as teenagers, five years into the future. They reminisce on the results of the titular contest (writing a story for a TV show), realizing that while none of them won, they still had fun writing their stories.
    • At the end of "The Curse of the Grebes", Buster is shown as an old man telling an exaggerated recount of the baseball game to his grandchildren.
    • "Brain and the Time Capsule" ends with a time skip from 2018 to 2118. Buster, who still looks as he did in 3rd grade but now wearing a space suit, digs up the time capsule and finds that the "Winkie" he left is still edible.
  • Big Mouth has "Nick Starr", which focuses on the characters' lives thirty years later, though it might be a case of Or Was It a Dream?.
  • Two episodes of Bluey end this way.
    • "Camping", after a speech from her mum about how friends come and go, finishes on a glimpse in the future to a teenage Bluey finally seeing her camping buddy Jean-Luc again after several years.
    • "Daddy Dropoff" ends with Bingo befriending a new kindy classmate Lila, followed by a brief slideshow of pictures that show the two remaining friends up through the end of high school.
  • Clarence has "Pilot Expansion", which has the show's pilot set up with a frame story of Clarence, Sumo and Jeff in a retirement home 78 years afterward trying to remember the first time they met.
  • Used in an episode of Ed, Edd n Eddy, which showed the three now-elderly Eds still together and still bickering in a delapidated house. Some have taken to mean the entire series was the three old!Ed's flashbacks. Word of God states this was originally how the series was supposed to end, before another season and a movie were put onto production.
  • Phineas and Ferb's "Act Your Age", set ten years after the summer in which the principal narrative of the series takes place, has Phineas and Isabella finally engaging in a romantic relationship.
  • The Rugrats 10th anniversary episode "All Growed Up", showing life for the main characters ten years on, was a Poorly Disguised Pilot for a Spin-Off show, All Grown Up!, featuring these older versions.
  • The Simpsons:
    • "Lisa's Wedding" is almost entirely Flash Forward (in spite of her advanced age, Maggie never gets the chance to speak, or sing as the case may be).
    • "Itchy & Scratchy: The Movie" ends with Homer taking Bart to see the movie he banned him from seeing forty years before.
    • Lisa as the first straight female president of the United States in "Bart to the Future."
    • Generally the Flash Forward episodes have Negative Continuity with each other, but "Holidays of Future Passed" contains several Continuity Nods to the others - Bart married (and then divorced) Jenda (his future girlfriend according to "Future-Drama"), Lisa ended up with Milhouse and Maggie became a famous singer as "Lisa's Wedding" predicted.
  • SpongeBob SquarePants:
    • "The Great Patty Caper" ends with a scene 75 years into the future where an elderly SpongeBob tells the events of the episode to his grandson.
    • "SpongeHenge" ends 3,000 years into the future where aliens are visiting the stone SpongeBob formation, unable to determine why they exist other than they attract jellyfish.
  • Star Wars: The Clone Wars; in the final episode of the Mortis arc, the Son (the physical embodiment of the Dark Side) shows Anakin his future, that he will fall to the Dark Side, betray the Jedi and become Darth Vader. Anakin accepts the Son's offer of an alliance to stop the visions from coming true and turns to the Dark Side until the Father wipes the visions from his mind.
  • The last episode of X-Men: Evolution ends with Charles Xavier's speech as he recalls a glimpse of the future (courtesy of Apocalypse's mind control). We learn that the anti-mutant sentiment will continue; Magneto reforms and teaches a new generation of mutants; The Brotherhood will become S.H.I.E.L.D operatives; and Jean Grey becomes the Phoenix. This is pretty much a Downer Ending to anyone whose read that story arc in the comics.


Video Example(s):


Hypnosis Session

In the very first scene of the series, protagonist Gereon Rath is lulled into a hypnotic trance and instructed to remember all that he has experienced up to this point, at which point the series proper begins.

The show will ultimately catch with this moment at the end of Season 2.
