Everlasting gave us an inside view of the world from Paterson’s perspective when she had extreme deja vu in order to solve the mystery behind the latest of Jane’s tattoos. Let’s recap.
Paterson’s day started with her neighbor waking her with his usual morning bugle-playing; then she got coffee and went to the lab for work. At the elevator, she bumped into Zapata and they discussed her feelings, and whether she was ever going to tell Reade. Zapata swerved this and instead focused on Paterson’s lack or romance since Dr Borden kidnapped her, bugged her tooth and then tried to kill her.
The whole episode was rigged with mini-reveals like how Paterson has a crush on Roman, and each of the dead people whom she cared about came back in turn to help her solve the case.
3 deceased marine’s remains were exhumed for testing when one of Jane’s tattoos directed the Team to unravel a cover up. An unsanctioned operation lead by a General went south, poisoning the 3 marines. The General turned up at the lab with a bomb secreted into one of the machines the lab used to test the remains. When the explosion went off the first time, Paterson was hit, but then her deja vu took her back to waking up in bed and started the day over a few times, each time unraveling more of the clues to the cover up.
In other story lines, Reade asked Zapata to be his best man, and she accepted. Paterson advised Jane and Kurt to tell Avery about her biological Father, no matter what he’s been accused of.
The final scene revealed Dr Borden is alive and an attack is imminent.
