And here it is. One of the best hours of entertainment in the history of serialized television, the tipping point for all the drama and incredible character development that is to come, not to mention the set up for the now inevitable first contact with the Alternate Universe. This is the episode where the characters catch up to us, the audience, and learn the same secret we've known since the end of last season: that Peter is a changeling, that the reason he has nightmares and can't remember his childhood is because he was stolen from his family, from his friends, from his world...by his father.
This is also the hour the rest of the season has had us waiting for, making us hold our breath before the plunge. It's a way back to the greatest moments of season one, through Olivia's bravery, through her willingness to sacrifice her own wellbeing and confront the abuses that marked her childhood for the good of the world.
This is Jacksonville.

Most Memorable Quote:
OLIVIA: I have a freakishly good memory. I remember everything. But not this. There's just nothing that's familiar.
PETER: Maybe that's a good thing.
OLIVIA: Nothing. Now what? Should we find some more kids to scare?
