There's no Previously On Felicity this week because it's a Very Special Episode. I'm still kind of confused as to why they said "To Be Continued..." at the end of the last episode, unless it was a cheap ploy to get people to tune in this week. But on this type of show, isn't every episode "To Be Continued..."? Anyway, on to the show. As I'm sure you all know, this episode was filmed entirely in black and white, and is a homage to The Twilight Zone.
The scene opens in Meghan and Felicity's dorm room, except everything is made over in the style of the late 1950s. Meghan is sitting at her desk, and she opens her secret box, then turns to look at Felicity, who is staring out the window. Meghan asks Felicity what the matter is. Felicity says nothing and then remarks that it's a "gray day." Get it? Because it's all in black and white? Meghan remarks that Felicity has been sitting there all morning. Felicity says, "Have I?" and picks up her (non-digital) clock to check the time. ["That clock is for sale at Urban Outfitters. We have it." -- Wing Chun] She gets up, and Meghan quickly closes her box. Felicity is wearing an Oxford shirt with a skirt, but it doesn't look all that different from her normal attire this season. Felicity asks what's in the box, and says "We've been roommates for almost two years. Don't you think it's about time you let me in?" Meghan says, "You'll know soon enough." This is what's known in the business as foreshadowing, so keep it in mind. Felicity leaves the room, and Meghan closes and latches the box, and then smiles.
Knoll is getting doughnuts in a '50s-style coffee shop, replete with '50s-style music. He tells Felicity, who is behind the counter, that he "woke up this morning with the strangest feeling." Felicity says that she did too. Knoll figured out what the feeling was about: He only has three semesters of college left, and everything has gone by so fast that he will be graduating before he knows it, and then what will happen? Felicity says that's a good question and Knoll says that it's a scary question. Then he asks about Felicity's strange feeling. Felicity says she doesn't know what it was about. Knoll says he has three chapters to read, and then continues, "If you hear me moaning back there, free cookies might help." Why would he be moaning while reading his chapters? I could accept groaning, but moaning? Knoll takes his doughnuts to a table, and Felicity continues taking doughnuts out of a box and putting them on a platter on the counter. She sees Knoll talking to Ben. Felicity watches them together and then, when their conversation ends, she watches them separately. A voice says, "Lovesick?" Felicity looks up and sees a scary-looking older woman, who has pupils like the guy from Limp Bizkit. Scary Woman says she saw Felicity staring at that boy, and wonders if it's her boyfriend, or her ex-boyfriend. Felicity says "Ex-boyfriends." Scary Woman says it's difficult, and Felicity says it's complicated. Scary Woman replies, "Love always is." Felicity realizes that she is discussing her personal life with a complete stranger -- and a scary one at that -- and asks, "May I help you?" Scary Woman says, "Maybe I can help you," and hands her a business card, explaining that she's offering help for the lovelorn. The card says "The Clinic" with an address underneath. In a nice retro-touch, the phone number has letters instead of numbers in it. I like attention to detail.
