  1. Ha! Yeah, the entire episode I kept thinking, “This is so Slaughterhouse-Five!”

    I was very surprised the book did not make a cameo somewhere.

  2. Totally. Faraday even told Des that he was “unstuck in time,” which made me laugh.

  3. yeah, did anyone catch how minkowski’s first name was ‘billy’? as in ‘billy pilgrim’ from slaughterhouse five as well as the whole army reference, not that we didn’t know that desmond was in the army.

    i’m loving the literary connections.

  5. I thought the same thing. There was one reference, though…Desmond’s friend in the military was named Billy.

  6. yep, on the nose, is time seen as it was on Tralfalmadore, no Future no Past all time is not linear. so there are infinite numbers of Dez along the line all existing in the present?

    well its a though.
