Julia and William have always worked together so well. Her being a profiler now will just continue their great professional relationship in a different form. I think one of the reasons they love each other is because Julia is one of the few people who understands William's thought process and can talk things through with him. They are great at bouncing ideas off each other. None of his other colleagues are quite on his intellectual level like she is. Not even Emily can fully understand him. And his other love interests certaintly weren't.
W/J will be working even closer together in S6 as Julia will spend most of her police work in the station with the team. It means she'll also get more scenes with George, Brackenreid and Higgins which will be fun. I would also like to see her being a consultant to Emily when she doesn't have profiling duty, as she does have more experience and panache as a pathologist. Though Emily seems quite competent more so than Dr Franks was. Seeing Julia in the station and sometimes in the morgue means she has reasons to be in every episode if Helene is available. Hopefully Helene is available for the whole of S6 or almost every episode.
Any word on her availability? I know she is filming with the others already and that is a hopefully a good sign. I just can't have another S5.
I am sure that Julia will visit the morgue from time to time but I really want to see her profiling . She was so happy profiling in twentieth Century Murdoch that I would love to see tons of that and William going and see Thomas afterwards and repeating what Julia said. I really do hope Helen is available full time and is in every episode to be honest just like season 1 to 4. I am glad to hear that she is filming now, which means she is with William investigating and hopefully, we will see her poping round at station4 but I have the feeling we will see her more at poor old doctor Roberts' office to keep running the psychiatric department. At least , she will be dealing with alive people even if they are not right in their head. She will be the new doctor Roberts but also at station 4 most of the time too when she asks someone else to care for her patients. I wonder how far from the station the psychiatric hospital is ? It looks like its pretty close and not miles away in Toronto. Roll on season 6.
They can't fit the psychiatric hospital and profiling into every episode. So she needs to spend time in the morgue to get screentime in the episodes where profiling just isn't needed. Otherwise she will be skipped in episodes.
I think they will have Julia profiling on cases, working with William more than Dr. Roberts did. But I don't know that they could fit it into every single episode. They might. I also don't know how they could really work her into the morgue scenes anymore though either. I guess if she and Emily were still actively involved with setting up a birth control clinic, though not working there, they might meet to discuss stuff or before going to meetings together. Julia might drop by the morgue and she and Emily would go to meetings together. Then I suppose William could run into Julia there, too. And possibly with George there, too. I do worry that Thomas could become isolated from the rest of the characters next season with the addition of Emily and Julia's profiling. I would actually love to see Margaret help Thomas on a case. Not regularly but once or twice would be fun. Maybe if he was working on a case that involved her somehow. Like if a murder happened at their church or at some ladies meeting she was at.
Julia could consult with Emily on cases in the morgue. And Thomas won't be isolated at all, infact he'll be working closer with more of the team. Julia will spend most of her scenes at the station when she is profiling so Thomas will be in more scenes with her. Emily will just be like she was in S5, sometimes she comes to the station and most of the time they go to her. It's Emily who will be the most isolated like Julia used to be.
lol, you guys r thinking too much. I enjoy reading the comments though. I think we should think less because in 45 minutes there is no time for all characters to be everywhere. I don't think Julia will be visiting the morgue that often now but may be twice in season 6 will be reasonnable. The rest of the time, we will see her like she was in Twentieth century murdoch or even taking the role of Doctor Robert, though I am not sure if she needs to be more qualified to be a the female doctor Robert !but it would be great if she could ...May be by the end od season 6 , she will be a fully quafilied psychiatrist and she would have a proper career she just enjoy.
I think we will see Julia more at station 4 and being at meetings about profiling on the new cases. She probably wont go on the field with William because Emily will be there but Julia will assist William with interviews inside station 4 or on the field as well but not the actual murder scene; then we could have them talk about their love for each other in between , something like they did in future imperfect....lol .
Yeah, I'm just thinking that with the focus possibly more on the profiling, Thomas could be more outside that. We could see some tension between him and Julia if he felt like she was interfering or distracting William from what Thomas thinks he should be focusing on. Thomas may stand watch outside the interrogation room more often than he has been, to monitor what she's doing. I'm thinking he may have his own separate plots more while Julia and William work together and Emily works with both William and George and probably interacts with Julia somewhat. I think Julia will be a fully fledged psychiatrist at the beginning of S6. There will probably be a few months in between S5 and 6 which would be when she finishes up her training for it. She's already spent a few months studying it by the S5 finale. And it wasn't like today where it would take years to become certified. It was a very new field. And like we saw with Darcy's reaction, not yet respected n the medical world, let alone law enforcement. So I doubt Thomas and Giles' reactions will be positive initially. She will probably get some push back from them, William will defend her and she will prove her value on the first few cases of S6.

K, this episode started out with a bang. We got a time traveller saying he has to stop a murder and he does. It was great to see winter, too.
I was like Brackenreid and was convinced something more was going on and didn't believe there was a time machine. Never ever did I suspect it was Dr. Roberts, though. My heart went out to Dr. Roberts each time he shook and dropped something. And with him on ice now, I am a sad puppy. I really liked is character. Such a bummer he won't be back now.
I really loved how Brackenreid kept digging, determined to unearth the time machine was fake. I was cheering in my seat each time he pushed George and William. I knew he wouldn't take the promotion. Brackenreid's heart is in station 4.
I felt bad for the time traveller dude who froze to death to see if the experiment would work. Poor fella.
I'll have to re-watch again Saturday night. I'm probably forgetting stuff.
I must say I really dug how Brackenreid pushed to solve the case because William was too caught up in the fantasy of a time machine. It shows how level headed Brackenreid is and how bad William wanted to believe his future was true.
Yeah, I also think William really wanted to believe the science behind it. He wanted to believe it was scientifically possible and the professor was very convincing about it. If it had been anyone else but such a learned academic, he wouldn't have believed it. I really liked the actor who played the professor. I do wonder if he and Dr. Roberts will appear again actually. It is possible.
I love reading all the new comments about this episode .
I agree with you too Lucy I was a bit worried with the time machine storyline and I didn’t want the show to go into a direction that is completely out of the way so I was happy with the way this part of the storyline was handled.
Because I am a W/J shipper I was happy with the ending but overall I think their situation as well as the ending of her marriage with Darcy was rushed (it is maybe the combination of Helene Joy not being available to film the entire season and the fact that the cast and crew thought that it would be their last season so they had to wrap up to have a happy ending; that’s how it feels to me so I am glad that we have another season – and hopefully many more after!! - to see how the relationship will develop with the issues that haven’t been tackled yet)
To Nugget, regarding Brackenreid I totally agree with you; throughout the episode, he was very level headed as William was getting more and more excited and in deep into his fantasy of the future. The scene in the Inpector’s office where William and George are talking about his son and what he saw and to see Brackenreid’s face who can’t believe what he is hearing was priceless!!!
I was sad also about Dr.Roberts as I really liked his character; was so happy to see him back in the episode “Murdoch in Toyland” even if it wasn’t for long and now there is practically no chance to see him again (getting him unfrozen would be a bit much for my taste anyway)
So here are my thoughts, excited about the new season that is coming though!!
"I DON'T CARE AND I DO IT WITH CONFIDENCE" - My own invented personal Motto
It is possible they'll bring him back but I agree that it's unlikely. Esp since Julia will be taking over his job, there would be less of a reason to have him involved in the show anymore. I also liked Thomas' bewildered expressions. He was so surprised William was buying into it all. It reminded me a little of his amusement over William's being taken in by Sally Pendrick.
