By The Old Man
Life of a Comet by Frank Black (The Beginning and the End)
At the start of Millennium's second season, The Beginning and the End opens with a montage of images from outer space, the life of a comet. The same comet appears in the night sky Frank Black is staring into, causing him to contemplate his own destiny and the relevance of the celestial body. In his monologue narrated by Lance Henriksen, protagonist Frank is considering the 'life' of a comet and its analogous relationship to our own existence.
Referring to his immediate state, Frank asks, "Is this the beginning or the end?"
Is it the beginning of the journey or the end when Frank allows his vengeance for the Polaroid stalker to push him over the edge in a relentless search for Catherine? The Millennium Group pulls Frank more deeply into its secretive ranks in an effort to bring closure to the abduction case with the knowledge that his work for them is not yet done.
