How do you let go of the past when there are so many secrets left there that you need to uncover? How do you move on from the past when you feel like something that you have done has changed everyones lives?
The Way Home is a show that explores just that and in this episode. Will traveling back in time help change the future? Does the same thing happen no matter what? Kat and Alice are going to go through a lot of change in this episode and it’s one thing that has the potential to tear them apart.
The thing about Kat and Alice is that they both have the same thought – they want to save Jacob. It’s just they are doing it in different ways.
In present day there is a lot that the Landry’s are going to have to deal with. Kat has become obsessed with what happened to her brother. She knows there is something she is missing. There is something that can’t put her finger on, but she knows it’s there.
For Del, in the present day, she’s having to deal with the fact that the town wants to bring back the town carnival. They haven’t had it since the year that Jacob disappeared.
Kat and Del have very different ways of dealing with things and that is okay. It’s okay because it’s how we all deal things… differently. I feel like seeing both of them have to face Jacobs disappearance in different ways shows that people can be suffering in different ways. I am not sure why it is that some people vocalize it and some don’t, but I think that is part of the issue with Del and Kat. They think that they both are grieving incorrectly, but the truth is, they are doing it in their own way.
Del doesn’t know what to think. She’s done everything that she can to forget because that’s how she knows how to deal with it. It’s how she knows how to hang on to some sense of sanity, because she’s lost everything.
I can’t imagine what it would be like to be Del and have lost everything that meant everything to her. Yes, Kat has come back, but Del lived two decades without her.
And it’s because of being back, because of time travel, because of the loss of Jacob, Kat was fighting with everything to figure out what happened to her brother. She wanted to figure out what happened to her brother in order to save him.
Del has to make the choice of supporting the festival or not. TBH, I didn’t think that she would do it, but I was proud when she did. I think that it’s important that the town moves forward. But I will be honest, I do believe that when the festival happens, we’re going to find out exactly what really happened with Jacob.
Though we see Jacob’s disappearance in this episode, I am left with more questions than answers. Elliot keeps telling Kat that she can’t change time and we learn quickly that she can’t. But it doesn’t mean that she’s not going to do everything to try.
It’s just that in her attempt to try, she’s going to change the present in a way that she didn’t think she would.
You see, Kat made it to the past. She kept her eyes on Jacob and when he and Danny went into a haunted house, Alice saw her. Alice didn’t realize that she had seen her at first, until she makes it back to the future and finds Kat and Elliott waiting.
While I can understand a lot of what happened, I can’t understand it all. I am completely baffled that we have no more of an idea of what happened to Jacob than we did before. That being said if he made it home, did he make it home before Kat got back? Did someone take him?
My theory has always been that Jacob time traveled and was too young. He couldn’t make it back.
Kat and Alice both feel at fault for what happened to Jacob, I have to say that I really am frustrated that they are further apart than ever. Kat and Alice need each other to be able to figure out what happened to Jacob. It’s the only way to move forward and it’s the only way to find out what happened to Jacob.
I am grateful that Kat and Alice know the secret of time travel, I feel like there is another piece of the puzzle that we are all missing.
And I think that missing piece has to do with Del. You see, I think that the white witch is real, after all, folklore is rooted in something.
