Forever season 1, episode 3 recap: ‘The Lake House’


June tries to acclimate to her new life in a world she doesn’t quite understand giving us another thought-provoking episode of Forever.

Forever gets better and better with each episode, and this one spends time having June adjust to whatever this new life and world is. There are hints of discomfort and confusion and she seems to be doing pretty well considering.

The episode also teaches us what “currents” are. Currents are the people who are alive and the dead can see them and if powerful enough interact with them. It’s safe to say that Oscar is over the moon about June joining him, even though it means she died on Earth.

And while it seems June is starting to get the hang of things, there’s one thing that doesn’t feel right. This life is not very different than the life she led before, and from the look in her eyes at the end of the episode, it’s clear she feels unsettled.
