This article contains spoilers for Quantum Leap season 2 episode 8.

Finding love as a time traveler isn’t easy and Quantum Leap is no exception. You discover through your swiss-cheesed memory that your hologram is actually your fiancé but then woops, some time travel shenanigans happen and they thought you were dead for three years and have a new boyfriend. It’s cool, you can always just start something up with a woman you keep meeting in the past on different leaps.

Such is the case for Ben (Raymond Lee) in season 2 of Quantum Leap. Broken up with his fiancé, Addison (Caitlin Bassett), Ben has found himself running into Hannah (Eliza Taylor) on multiple leaps. The two have formed a connection, Hannah fascinated and thrilled by Ben’s time travel, and Ben glad to have some kind of anchor in his random trips through time. Is this the universe just being nice to Ben after Addison left him? Are Ben and Hannah cosmetically fated to be together and it’s all just pure romance?

I doubt it. There’s something deeper going on with these two. Yes, it was adorable after Ben was forced to reveal to Hannah who he really was and her reaction was not one of disbelief but thinking it was romantic. Yet with the mid-season finale of season 2, “Nomad.” there’s so many little details that make us question what the hell’s going on.
