This is kind of a middling episode in Dark. Still damn good, but taking its time a little more than I would like. Much screen time is spent with characters who are discovering time travel: their reactions, not believing it at first but succumbing when it becomes undeniable. This process is wearying to see yet again after seeing it in other characters already this season. It's a necessary part of the plot, but takes too long to get to the point in my opinion.
Claudia's storyline continues to be a delight, the future again influencing the past when she decides to spend more time with her father, knowing his death date. In her interactions with him she has problems showing her full emotions, it's sad.
Ulrich's development in this episode is excellent, and incredibly sad at points. The scene where Mikkel recognises him as his father is so tender. Yet when he is ripped away from his son by the police, Mikkel's reaction shows he feels sorry for him, but his place is now here in 1986. Heartbreaking to see this is how Ulrich's story ends.
As for Noah's claim to Charlotte that he is going against Adam... I know I shouldn't believe it, but I kind of do. After all, we saw his reaction to seeing the pages in the book that were hidden from him. And I don't see why he would benefit from lying to Charlotte about his intentions when she hasn't even seen him for ages until now.
The plan Adam has for Jonas, to stop the beginning by stopping his dad taking his own life, frankly doesn't make sense. We have already seen his father's death and everything that led to, and the show's philosophy is that everything that happens is pre-determined, it can't be changed. So either Dark has a huge spanner to throw in the works, or Adam is lying.
