Seinfeld - Season 9, Episode 8 - Rotten Tomatoes

The Betrayal


Episode Info

This is the legendary "backwards" episode, beginning at the end with a bedraggled Jerry (Jerry Seinfeld), George (Jason Alexander), and Elaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) returning from a trip to India. Thereafter, each successive scene takes us back in time, culminating with the opening of the story -- 13 years earlier! In between, the action involves a birthday, a wedding, a snowball, and a man with the initials F.D.R. For the benefit of those confused by the reverse chronology, the syndicated print of this episode superimposes "time cards" at crucial points in the story.
