Ah, gave him the old "Donkey Kong" treatment. Nice.

Okay, so Watcher has TK, telepathy and can erase memories. How are they going to fight this guy again?

Well, JJ can just think of several math equations at lightspeed. He'll go "WTF?" when he's trying to figure out what JJ's thinking and this distracts him long enough for Steph to smack him 500 times in a second.

Or, if they go for a "Heartwarming" moment he tries to immobilize Jim with TK but Jim thinks of how Steph and the kids will be dissected by Dr. King and his will to save them allows him to resist Watcher. Watcher pumps enough TK into him that he starts to bleed out of his nose and eyes but Jim can't be stopped. Either Watcher passes out from over-straining his brain, or Jim just chokes him/smacks him out.

This episode had the most potential by far, but once again it was written way too simplistically and without any regard to common sense issues like someone seeing them using their powers out in the open (such as the criminals Jim beat up).

I knew I recognized the recurring scientist they offed in this episode. He was one of the Kobayashi Maru test administrators in the last Star Trek movie.

I remember him as a bad guy on Prison Break. It was season one of that show IIRC. The Daphne amnesia cliffhanger was just lame. It's just a cliche.
