We learn about the Partition of India, while multi-ocular members of the band Lordi scare the heck out of anyone dying alone.
When Yaz asks to go back and see her grandmother in her youth, Doc casts aside any notion of non-interference and takes the whole Fam back to the eve of said Nani’s wedding. There’s a fair bit of tension in the air, however: they’ve materialised on what is about to become the border between India and Pakistan in 1947; the groom is not Yaz’s granddad; and there are alien assassins lurking in the forest.
And that’s not even the half of it! The local holy man who was meant to officiate has just been murdered; the brother of the groom is lobbying for ethnic segregation; and if Yaz isn’t careful, she might reverse-Marty-McFly herself out of existence. Time for Doc to save a wedding and possibly her companion, stop the aliens, let history unfold with no intervention whatsoever and teach us about Partition in the process.
