  • The episode features the infamous storyline which leads Dylan to believe, for a while, that he and Kelly are soulmates, and are meant to be together, as she saves him from himself in a past life.


  • Episode co-writer Larry Mollin wanted to underline that Dylan thinking he and Kelly are soulmates isn't the truth, but Dylan's interpretation at that moment in time.[1] Dylan himself later eschews this take[2]
