‘The Orville’ season 3 episode 2 a nod to classic sci-fi horror

Warning: Spoilers ahead for “The Orville” season 3, episode 2

You may have just recently been reminded if you embarked upon a rewatch of Seasons 1 and 2 before now that the second season finale was made up of a thrilling alt-universe two-part story arc. While Lt. cmdr. John LaMarr (J. Lee) is mucking about with a snow-cone maker time travel device in the episode “Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow” (S02, E13), a gravitational wave encountered by the Orville amplifies the temporal field generated by said time travel device and in that instant, the spike in field energy was enough to transport Cmdr. Kelly Grayson’s (Adrianne Palicki) past self into their present.
