After Quantum Leap: Star Light, Star Bright - May 21, 1966 (1992) and Quantum Leap: Deliver Us from Evil - March 19, 1966 (1992), this marks the third time in four episodes that Sam has leaped into 1966. He never leaped into that year on any other occasion. See more »

Dr. Sam Beckett: She's alive. She's alive. Abigail... is alive. There-there was a... fire and a w-window and... s-she got out, and I... didn't. But I'm alive. I'm alive and I'm-I'm back here as W-W... Will Kinman. Why? Why am I b-back here? This does not make any sense at all.
Admiral Al Calavicci: What doesn't make any sense at all? To whom are you talking? People are gonna think you're cuckoo, walkin' around like this.

Excellent Writing and Acting But Needs Close Attention!
21 June 2014 | by ratssaidskinnerSee all my reviews

I am a 50 year old man and an avid QL fan; I've have seen every episode several times. However, TRILOGY stands out to me as one of the most thought out and thought provoking of the entire series. Kudos to the writers for their attention to detail in this three part episode! The one thing that sort of creeps me out is how Will had such a crush on Abigail in the first part of TRILOGY since he was so much older than her. Another thing that bugs me in Part-2, is Sam's stuttering. I just feel he overdid it.

This review is specifically about TRILOGY - PART-2. There are only a handful of episodes from the five year series that I consider to deserve a rating of 10. TRILOGY PART 2 is one of them. (Actually, I'd go for 9.5 if that was available!)

My reason for this high rating is EVERYTHING! The casting is spot-on! Even the resemblance between Abigail and her mother (played by veteran actor Meg Foster) is uncanny. The writing is virtually flawless and ALL of the actors brought the script to life in a near perfect manner.

The first time I saw all three episodes of TRILOGY was back in the late 90's, so I had to wait a week between episodes. We didn't have Netflix back then! It can be somewhat easy to get lost following what's going on in these three parts if one doesn't pay attention. Ironically, if I was asked to rate TRILOGY (all parts) back in the 90's, I would have gone with a five or six b/c it left me feeling confused.

In conclusion, if one feels confused and aggravated by this confusion with following the three parts, may I suggest watching them again and giving this trilogy another shot? Perhaps I am slow, but it wasn't until the third time I watched this mini-series in a series, that I felt so much respect and understanding and admiration for the story-line. So, coincidentally, I needed a trilogy of views to feel so strongly about this amazing three part episode!
