I vaguely recall a series of episodes (perhaps not all consecutive?) in Quantum Leap that dealt with a "dark" (i.e. bad, evil) equivalent to Sam.

Which episodes of which seasons did this dark jumper appear in?


1 Answer 1


They were more commonly referred as the Evil Leapers, and they appeared in 3 episodes in the fifth season : "Deliver Us From Evil", "Return Of The Evil Leaper" and "Revenge Of The Evil Leaper". The first 2 episodes featured Alia as the leaper and Zoey as the hologram; in the third, Zoey is the leaper.

    No fair. Batroc has a trademark on "Leaper".

  • @Omegacron: if Batroc ever gets his hands on an Ant-Man suit then we could be faced with Batroc the Quantum Leaper. Commented Aug 27, 2015 at 12:15
  • To add a little color, Alia appears to be in the role as "evil leaper" involuntarily and desperately wants out of the business, while Zoey relishes her roles as observer and then leaper, and Thames really loves being the observer for Zoey. Commented Aug 16, 2022 at 18:12
