Soldier Boy Look Back
This week on 11.22.63 Soldier Boy, Jake continues to recover from his horrific beating with Sadie at his side. Deke keeps Sadie company throughout the recovery process as we find out that Ms. Mimi has passed away during the the early days of November 1963. We progress quickly to the the morning of November 22nd fairly quickly through the use of title card sequences as Jake struggles to get his memory back. He seeks out the one person that can help him, but will his brother (yeah right) Bill be in the right mind himself since being committed to the asylum. Jake and Sadie also have a run in with Lee Harvey Oswald himself as they take a trip down memory lane on Madison street to jog Jake’s memory of the past. But none of that compares to the conversation Jake has when he encounters The Yellow Card Man directly the night before JFK’s assassination.

Thanks to Todd Schwartzberg from the Facebook group who shared with us the theory of The Babooshka Lady. Could it have been Marina Oswald and will they use this in the show during the finale? See the theory below.
