That is interesting...to say the least. I wonder if we could get a straight answer on that from anyone? HTV apparently used some state of the art identification software to compare the original footage and match it automatically.
From what I recall, we've been told all of the original footage for Season 2 was found, minus a few seconds...isn't that right?
Alternate takes wouldn't qualify as having found the 'original' footage from the episode though.
So I'm curious...mistake or intentional. Perhaps we can ask Mike Okuda or Robert Meyer Burnett? They seem pretty open about this stuff.
