SEASON 3 EPISODE 13. (74)
"Legacy of Love"
December 20 1960.
** Spoiler Alert **
SYNOPSIS: Despite all of her attempts to travel to the town of Woodmere, fate conspires to send a woman
traveler to the out-of-the-way town of Seaside instead. There she finds herself drawn to a married man that
she has never met before. As they are compelled to be together, the couple starts to experience strange
memories that are not their own and that only someone of a previous generation could adequately explain.
COMMENTARY: What does science really understand about memory (?) There are said to be different types
(motor-skill and factual) and levels (immediate, short-term, and long-term). This episode asks whether there
is yet another: a genetic or hereditary memory that is passed from one generation to another . . .
