This week’s DEEP dive into Uncle Nicky filled in probably everything we needed to know about what went into his “One Small Step” outside his familiar existence and onto a California-bound airplane. Although Paul admits to feeling like this episode provided greater detail where none was required, Caroline points out this episode’s new character may be the real reason for this look back. The introduction of Sally and her impact on both Nicky’s history and what many fans hope to be his future may have been the real reason for this week’s stroll down memory lane.

We also chat about:
  • The confusing nature of the hot and cold portrayal of Jack and Nicky’s father.
  • The origin of Jack’s decision to lock away the war, and in turn his brother, from Rebecca and his family for the rest of his life
  • LOTS of Nicky-focused talk
