The Time Traveler Wife Review 2022
Why does the absence of a loved one make love more intense?" Clare asks in the Time Traveler’s Wife series premiere, and she knows a thing or two about waiting for her MIA soulmate.
Adapted by Steven Moffat (Doctor Who, Sherlock) from Audrey Niffenegger’s book, the drama begins with Clare (played by Game of Thrones‘ Rose Leslie) posing that question to the camera, while a much older Henry (Sanditon‘s Theo James) separately says that time travel is “not a super power. Disabilities are a fact of life. What ails me is this.
When she's six years old, Henry (Good Girls' Everleigh McDonell) shows up in the clearing behind her house, where she lives. Because he can't bring anything with him when he travels, she lends him her father's clothes, and he shows up bare-chested. Clare interrogates him with a series of queries. He hasn't seen any dinosaurs, unfortunately.
The answer is no, he is not married. Yes, he’s married, to someone who’s also named Clare. When young Clare asks if it was love at first sight, Henry replies, “God, I hope not.” Henry is visibly uncomfortable when Clare mentions that she is grooming her toy horse's hair.
We learn that Henry first encountered another time traveller when he travelled back in time at the age of seven, when he met himself at the age of 28. Older Henry keeps his identity secret as he teaches his younger self (General Hospital‘s Jason David) how to survive when he’s dropped into the timeline without clothes, resources or food. Much Older Henry tells the camera, "There are three things I'm good at: running, fighting, and stealing."
When 7-year-old Henry travels back in time, he finds himself in the days leading up to his first date with Clare, who is 28 years old. There, he steals the clothes of an outcast and asks the girlfriend of the outcast to give him her flowers. When Henry brings Clare back to his apartment after dinner, she practically jumps on him. Despite the fact that it's been 14 years since she last saw him this young and attractive, she accentuates like Rose in that "It's been 84 years..." Meme of the Titanic.

As a result, someone in the audience will most likely inquire as to when Clare and Henry initially met. "I got married to a time traveller. Clare smiles and says, "It's complicated."
Younger you is a dick, and I get older you." It's not fair... Inquiringly, "How did he become you?" Clare's disbelief is palpable. Her is the quickest answer. Henry formed himself around her as she formed herself around him...
After a tense argument, 36-year-old Henry receives some unsolicited advice from his grandfather: "Find the love of your life and die as slowly as you can." "You saw the blood. Things are going to happen. As he drives back to Clare's apartment, he warns her, "There is no more time to waste."
