***The following contains slight spoilers for tonight's episode***
NBC’s Quantum Leap
takes place thirty years after the events of the original series when Dr. Sam Beckett vanished. The series follows Ben Song (Raymond Lee) who leaps into the bodies of people in the past and has been since unable to return to the present. Things became complicated for Ben this season when his fiancé and hologram, Addison (Caitlin Bassett) thought that he died. Years passed in reality, when for Ben it seemed like days. Addison moved on, falling in love with the man who got her through his death, Tom (Peter Gadiot), and Ben had a hard time accepting it. Then, Ben met Hannah (Eliza Taylor), a woman in the past that he shared a connection with, and they fell in love, the leaps pulling them together time and again, though each time years apart.
In tonight’s all-new episode, Addison broke up with Tom, but does that mean she’s once again destined to be with Ben, or will Ben continue his relationship through time, with Hannah never meeting the real Ben Song?
Yesterday, Bassett and Taylor spoke with SciFi Vision about their relationship with Ben and what could be in their characters’ futures, including if Addison accepting Tom’s proposal was in any way influenced by the appearance of Hannah and if she is ready to be with Ben again, what Hannah’s happy ending looks like to Taylor and what time period she would like to revisit with Hannah, what it’s like filming scenes when Hannah cannot see Addison, and more.
