  Episode 3 of 11.22.63 - Other Voices, Other Rooms Sometimes the past doesn't want to be changed! School teacher Jake Epping, (James Franco), travels back in time to prevent the assassination of John F. Kennedy, thinking that the world would have been a better place had Kennedy not been killed.  However, he finds that easier said than done due to a myriad of obstacles and misfortunes, most notably, the past itself. Jake quickly learns that the past pushes back against being changed. Episode 3 of 11.22.63 - Other Voices, Other Rooms Jake and Bill become "partners" and take a road trip to Dallas.  Jake begins working as a a high school English teacher, while he and Billy begin their surveillance of Lee Harvey Oswald. We're back after an expected hiatus due to travel and health issues (non the least of which were James' cuticles). Jake tells the worst car trip passenger ever about the plot to kill Kennedy and that’s he’s here from the future... The book is pretty messed up, how he reads anything out of it is a mystery. A tighty whitey fight ensues much to Laura's chagrin. DO THEY NOT HAVE MINIBARS IN THE 1960s!? The history of the hotel minibar. The Lincoln/Kennedy Coincidences and Connections  Horrible scars on the kids back, possibly abused. $100 for a ride and not getting shot, woot! (How many pieces of pie could you buy with that?) Daly Plaza seems like deserted ghost town. Is this the least busiest street in America? Why is no one around? Apparently people only come out to watch a President get shot. The great "reset" debate continues Bill and Jake, PARTNERS! Welcome to Jodie, Texas. Catcher in the Rye Mark David Chapman used this book as his "official statement to police" after assassinating John Lennon Bill is super creepy hanging round the school.  Jack Ruby... Laura is using this series to learn about history The Lincoln/Kennedy Coincidences and Connections  And the list Miranda Mentioned on Wikipedia Bill is spilling the beans already after like... a day. Worst. Partner. Ever. First Day of School Mr. Coleslaw? Probably not a good idea to offer a black woman a cup of coffee in pre-civil rights times Texas. Are there rules for going in the closet? The years pass.... In the weird time warp hallway. Hellooooo distraction! The past had something up its sleeve! Jodie High School just happens to have a teacher position open? Not trying to hard past, are you? Fort Worth, Texas Passage of time portrayed well with the car showing an increase in wealth Poe's Story: Cask of Amontillado Oswald finally gets back from Russia. He is very proud about defecting for someone who comes back to Texas. Have they used that string designation for places before? Super racist landlord, this a terrible neighborhood. Super homophobic neighbors. They don’t have minibars, but they have pretty good spy equipment? Is Bill the bad "leaper"? Bill and Jake bug the apartment Bill is still being creepy Spiders in the attic (or was it the crawlspace?) George de Mohrenschildt??? Convenient in for General Walker... Again, seems like this is way too easy so far. The HomoPhobes "ruin" the taps.  Really? Just rewind in on the spools! The past is not trying too hard! Mr. Amberson helps Ms. Mimi. Go Jake! The school dance. Laura and Miranda are apparently predisposed to distrust her due to their shared gender Miss Representation movie General Walker Rally The connection between Oswald and Walker has us all befuddled Oswald really doesn’t like General Walker If Walker is against Kennedy, why would Oswald want to kill Walker and Kennedy? Final Thought: Did Oswald really have a speech impediment / accent? From REDDIT: I did find a bit of broadcast video of Oswald speaking with press that was pub...
