Shows that use objects to connect timelines


Novice Member
I'm going mad trying to think of TV series that use a specific object as the theme of episodes in different timelines...

Sound confusing? So this is where a character has/finds/uses an object in the present, and then later in the episode we see in the past what the significance of it is.

The only example I can think of is Transparent, when we learn the tragic Holocaust history behind the ring the Pfeffermans are passing around in the present day. And that's not really it!

Can you think of any shows that use this kind of structure as a device to connect timelines?


Sliders had a garden gate squeaking or not as a timeline referent.
