The Lazarus Project - Episode 2

While the interrogation of the prisoner captured in the last episode does weave into the end of the episode, "Episode 2" primarily deals with two separate storylines. The first is George (Paapa Essiedu) being rocked by events involving Sarah's (Charly Clive) accident. The other, coincidentally taking place on the same night George and Sarah met, are the repeated attempts of Anjli Mohindra (Anjli Mohindra) and her former partner (Brian Gleeson) to stop the end of the world. This helps explain her attempts to ease George's pain based on her own loss and provide some interesting insight in how many of the reset timelines in which George and Sarah didn't get together, or even meet, at a party the same night the world ended.

By the time you get to the end of the episode George's grief makes his decision fairly obvious. Despite multiple members of the agency offering George comfort in their own way, leaving him alone with his thoughts (and later with a terrorist) and not monitoring his actions seems like a pretty large oversight for the group who doesn't take any chances for granted. With George's decision made, the question is not only how far will he go to force the timeline to reset before the next checkpoint (bringing back) but, if he is successful, how will he handle to repeated world he recreates?
