FlashForward Sneak Peek: 137 Sekunden

by at . Comments

Here's what we know about the global blackouts on ABC's new hit, FlashForward:

  • They took place at 11 a.m. PST on the same day;
  • Everyone on the planet, except for two people known so far, saw visions of themselves on April 29, 2010;
  • The blackouts lasted for a total of 137 seconds.

This week's episode appears to focus on the final fact listed above, as it's titled 137 Sekunden; the latter is the German word for "seconds."

In the clip below, Mark Benford stumbles upon evidence of a prisoner in Germany that claims to know why the flash forwards lasted for this amount of time.

Watch it now, and remember to visit TV Fanatic each week for the latest recaps, photos, quotes, spoilers and more.
